I was heading out to split some wood.

When Winter time arrives, I like to have numerous cords of wood ready so I can use my fireplace.

I have a gas furnace to keep the lake house warm, although I like using the fireplace.

So every fall, I head out into the woods, bring back all the dead plus storm ravaged wood that I can find. I make sure I get as much wood as I can find so I can put it into the woodshed. There is a wood box on the porch, right outside the door. If a snowstorm comes up, I don’t need to walk to the backyard to get wood for the fireplace. Living alone makes it easy, so I don’t need to worry about anyone but myself, but it is hard. I would like some dealer, but my kids don’t come around. Whenever they do come to visit, it is to try to talk myself and others into coming to live with them. They seem to suppose that all because my spouse died, I should leave my home. This was our cabin for the last numerous years plus I suppose like she is here with me. Maybe someday I will decide I don’t want to live alone any longer. I’ll let them build a spare room into their home, if it makes them suppose better. I want a private bathroom plus resting room too. I’ll also tell them I want a small fireplace so I can keep warm. I can’t suppose of any better way to keep my joints from getting stiff plus achy than sitting in front of the fireplace. If they can’t accept that, I’ll just stay where I am.
