A Day Spent Outside
Friday, December 31, 2010
The weather here was about 55-60 degrees today and we knew it wouldn't last long, so outside we went today. Since moving into our new home, we have finished most of the remodeling we wanted to do inside, but there is LOTS of brush and trees to clear outside. I grew up with having a fireplace and chopping wood for the winter. Today brought back a lot of memories and a very good feeling of accomplishment. All of us, down to my two-year old, we clear, chopped, and burned wood. It felt good, not only to start making a dent in it, but we did it together. (Not to mention the workout it was!) I do believe I'll sleep well tonight.
Tomorrow, off to grandma's to celebrate not just the New Year, but her birthday!
