Notice: Daughters, son, daughter-in-law, sons-in-law, grandchildren, please take notice of the featured picture. Yes, that is a brand new stack of firewood – two full cords to be precise. It was delivered to Serendipity Farmhouse on September 29th and it is waiting for you.
Now I don’t believe in coercion, especially with my own kin. So, I won’t make too much of the fact that I am currently revising my will. Mind you, there is absolutely no relationship between the fact that those two cords of wood need to be moved to the shed and how I might choose to distribute my estate to you, my heirs. Nope, there’s no relationship at all. However, I am open to any and all offers by you to come to SFH and participate “freely” in the wonderful Autumn ritual known as “The Moving of the Wood”. [My attorney will be taking attendance.]
Oops, beautiful, wonderful, and most wise spouse just stepped in and read the above. As a result of her gentle reminders and admonitions, I have placed my will back into the safe, sent my attorney back to his office, and I am now planning to purchase and prepare treats, goodies, and wonderful snacks for all of my beloved family who might join me in “The Moving of the Wood.”
Highlight: Our next post will be filled with pictures of the devastation caused to our yard and apple trees here at SFH due to the unusually wet weather we’ve had this year. It will be somewhat of a downer. But, as you will see below, the jalapeno, serrano, habanero, and okra plants survived the worst of nature’s insults. They continue to provide a bountiful harvest. Who knows, maybe some of the SFH wood movers will be treated to some tasty Jalapeno poppers in partial repayment for their labors.
Weather: How wonderful it is to experience a few days without rain. Autumn is in the air and beautiful spouse and I are enjoying the change.
