A quiet couple of weeks

Been getting back to normal here after a week now off antibiotics. Certainly feeling better too - guess I had the bugs in my gum for ages since a dental episode several months ago, and it was running me down.

Work has been busy, so I've stayed close to the fire except for a trip to Queenstown, and tonight gathering some driftwood from a remote part of the lake shore at Hawea.

I really enjoy doing this most winters to augment my firewood supplies. And it takes no time to dry it out. All sorts of woods too, and they remind of the beautiful places they come from, that I've been fortunate to spend weeks in...

gathering driftwood for the fire sounds less like a chore than having fun in a scenic place.It also appeals because it doesn't cost you anything other than your time and effort. Me I have just ordered another 2 metres of firewood in the hope it will see us through the winter. Stacking it in the weekend will indeed be a chore.

Kia ora Donald,
Wishing you good health and warmth in front of that fire. There is something very soothing about collecting wood and putting it to use. Kia kaha.
Cheers,
Robb

I'm always reminded when it comes to fire wood Marg. that it warms us more than once!
