A woodshed full of firewood. There is something very primally satisfying about a large tidy stack of wood. Knowing that you have the resource required to keep you and yours toasty warm, whatever weather the Goddesses choose to bestow, is a wonderful feeling.
Today we had our first fire of 2016. At 16° the day wasn’t really all that cold, but grey skies and rain had us looking for some cheer. Anyway after a postprandial (yes, go on, follow that link) walk around the paddocks looking at future fencing requirements, everyone was very glad to return to a warm dry house. Wet clothes were hung up to dry over the backs of chairs, and a nice cup of tea brewed. Now that’s the way to spend an autumn afternoon.
For your entertainment bonus pictures of dogs posing in front of firewood will now ensue.
There, wasn’t that fun? Now I’m off to feed the horses and unpack another few boxes.
What things about autumn make you happy?
