Thank you so much for those nice comments my friend. It is said that the production of firewood give you warmt many times: when cutting down the tree, making logs, cleaving........etc. And of course the redoks reactions in the fireplace. :-)

When you said that, I thought you meant you made the trees too.

Nice looking stack of cords you got there. How many cord you think you got there?. Should keep you and family toasty warm this winter.

But you cheated, you used a splitter. I had to split ours by hand with a double bladed axe. Many years ago.)

I should explain, where I lived at the time, we called it splitting, not cleaving.

Thank you for commenting. :-) No....no...I didn't make the trees. Photosynteses made the trees and I think our Lord invented the photosynteses. I agree, I am cheating by using a splitter, but at the sime time I think life is to short to split by hand. :-)

I did that the first three years I was here, only splitting with an axe. Now I buy a dumptruck load of wood already split, and split to smaller sizes with an electric log splitter. I haven't but the brush wood from my property for 10 years, it looks like I may have enough wood there for another winter.

Thank you for commenting Normhead. Our property in the city is so small, less than 1000 square meters, no place for many trees. In the countryside where our cabin is located I can harvest some firewood. :-)

Thank you photomax7. The sunny summertime in Norway is not to be trusted, therefor I am heading for Spain quite soon. :-)
