My dad told me many years ago that firewood warms you twice...he was wrong...it does indeed warm you three times... (if not more) at my age.

If you need a fourth warming eat a Keilbasa, and a warm breeze will soon be wafting upward from your nether regions.

Cutting, splitting, stacking, carrying in, burning, collecting/taking out ashes. Any more?
I’d break up the cutting into felling in the bush, bucking, hauling to truck, loading into truck, unloading from truck, then carry on with your splitting, stacking etc.

...stacking, restocking when the stack falls over, re-filling the wheelbarrow when it tips, re-stacking the wood because the kiddos put wood on top the old wood already inside...

My wife will occasionally accuse me of being lazy with the ax or saw when a split is a bit too large. I feel a certain warmth as my blood pressure rises ::-)

What about that warm fuzzy feeling you get inside when you look at those beautiful wood stacks you worked your rear off to get. Warms my heart.
LOL! I so get that! I'll sometimes hike to the Upper Field where I store my wood and just admire it.
