Yesterday I bought a log splitter to make a start on splitting up the large pile of logs that the Lad had cut up with the chain saw.
I love how, when everything is perfect, the axe 'bites' and the log cleaves in one go and with little effort. I love the pile of split wood as it grows and grows.
I love the thought of the heat that the wood will generate later in the year as the weather nips off and we load up the wood heater.
I love how it makes you take time to appreciate how beautiful wood is.
I love how it makes me feel strong.
