My Wood cutting, splitting, stacking Actifit Report Card: August 24 2019

in actifit •  9 months ago 

Went thru 2 tanks of gas on the chainsaw and got more of one tree cut down then split. I backed my truck up to one pile, loaded it nicely into the bed, then backed it up near the fire pit. Then @stryeyz and I unloaded and stacked the wood onto the pile. We now have a full cord of wood towards winter. This year we will reduce our gas cost nicely with the wood heat supplementing.

I potted up my tallest avocado tree since it was needing watering more often than it's sister. I will do the other one but need another bag of soil first, though it is pretty good as is for now.

Going to dive into the CoCoRaHS and do soil moisture reports and local conditions reports once a week. I really love weather, the science, and the fact of being a citizen scientist. Weather is something that impacts 99.5% of human endeavours so it is in EVERYONE'S best interest to know as much as possible about climatology and weather.

My cat faced spider was looking all bad ass in the sun. She likes to show off her physique and form. She is silver round sized now and still growing. I need to know if she can live through winters or not because I WILL bring her inside so she makes it through till next spring.


Though would be stellar to have her in a corner of the house inside. Maybe she would be able to keep the flies abated, or dead with all their life sucked from them in a slurry.

Some years back I lived on a knob in Western North Carolina. (I grew up a Yankee Suburbanite, but after leaving the service, spent most of my young adult life in North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia).

One of my favorite activities was chopping wood. At that time I had a great deal of nervous energy and chopping wood was sort of a therapy for me. Not to mention the wood was helpful in the cold winters in Lenoir, North Carolina.

Living in an apartment complex, there is no need for chopping wood anymore. I just pay the electric bill.

I will be heading back down to North Carolina in a couple of months to spend time with my sister's daughter and grand daughters. We shall see if the old man is still able to chop at least a cord of wood!

Have a great week my friend!

It is a cathartic process for me. I grew up splitting firewood, from the time I could swing a sledge hammer and hit the wedges. I have always had the same "nervous energy" and I think my parents used splitting wood as a way to get me to work some off. I grew to enjoy the splitting and now it is for my family and my home so it has taken on a bit more meaning. Plus there is just something about the heat from a fireplace that is super comforting.

You will have to give the old maul some swings when you get there, you might just surprise yourself!
