We hope you enjoyed a nice and restful Labor Day Weekend as we bid farewell to the Summer once again. Soon the weather will begin to turn cool and eventually be followed by Winter. One thing we cats here in The House of 9 Lives love about the cold days of Winter is snuggling up on the ottoman right in front of the fireplace when a blaze is going strong.
In preparation for those days ahead, He and She spent yesterday out in the woods gathering up some firewood to make sure we can all stay toasty warm.
Sometime over the past few months, the wind took down a tree on some neighboring property that in turn took down part of our fence in the woods.
After clearing away what was on our side of the fence.
There – that’s much better. Apparently, this was a really big tree that split. Half of it came our way and half is leaning on another tree. There is still a lot of wood to be had, but it will take a larger chainsaw than what He currently has.
Here are the results of the first couple of loads. They still have to cut, split and stack it, but just looking at that makes me feel all warm and tingly inside!
Here’s another picture She took while they were outside working. This is Max. He’s outstanding in his field.
And they say cats are curious! Trust me, those cows have to know everything that goes on around here!
We hope your Labor Day wasn’t quite so labor intensive!
