Reason #421 why I am AWESOME...

Remember how we re-did our fireplace?  If you missed it, you can see it here.  The whole reason we decided to redo it was to be able to burn wood to help heat our house.  The first winter here just about bankrupt us.  Well, in order to burn wood, you have to have wood.

We just ordered some from a super cute little old guy last week.  He dropped it off in the driveway and since we were all sick, it just sat there.  Well, I looked at the weather today and saw that we are going to get at least 12 inches of snow by Wednesday night.  Guess what that means?  The wood can't stay in the driveway because I am certainly not digging it out from under 12 inches of snow!

So, I just spent 2 hours moving a huge pile of wood and stacking it neatly on our porch so I can get to it without having to dig for it.  I'm going to pay dearly for moving it all myself, but at least while we are snowed in and I can't move I'll be warm and toasty!  :)  Sounds like the perfect time to get some crocheting done.

Oh, you want pictures?  Oh, okay...here you go.

I'm a horrible person, you have no idea the innuendos that are whirling through my brain right now.
