My World: Ready for Winter


Ready for winter -- our woodpile. Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. November 2, 2009.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, Louise and Fishing Guy.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

I finally finished stacking the wood that came while Betsy was in Maggie Valley.  The picture above shows our wood pile.  The wood on the right is what I’ve stacked this year.  We’ll burn that wood next year.  The pile on the left has been aging for a year and that is what we will burn this winter.  If you look at the foreground of the picture you will see lots of leaves.  Guess what we’ll be doing this week?



Full moon in the eastern sky. November 2, 2009.

Now that we’re back on standard time it gets dark early.  Monday we were coming home from Cookeville and had to stop at a grocery store to pick up a few things.  When we came out of the store we saw this full moon in the eastern sky.

As we headed home we came up over a hill and had this view of the western sky.  What a great way to end the day!

    I can just smell that firewood burning while sipping some hot chocolate! The fall/winter skies have so much more interest to me…

  2. Susie Says:

    I love to smell wood burning. It conjures up so many memories for me. Have fun raking leaves. When you finish I know another yard that could use that!

    I love your wood pile…you know how I enjoy all things organized and orderly!!!
    Great moon and sunset George!

  4. Jen Says:

    That’s a lot of wood!
    You know I hope you enjoy your fires this winter, but,
    I’d rather be back to warmer temps already. ;0

  5. Pat VanderBeek Says:

    Wow! Spectacular moon and sunset photos!

    My guess is you’re going to be raking leaves this week.

  6. Becky Says:

    Seeing that woodpile makes me remember the smell of wood burning in a fireplace…good memories…

    Wow! You’ve done quite a bit of work. Guess it’s true that firewood warms you twice.

  8. Lilli Says:

    yup its that time of yr. my son has been cutting wood to sell. we have pellet stove love the last 2 photos

  9. Judy Says:

    i run the mower over the leaves a few times (well, husband does it now, but i did it while i was a singla mother – it was hard enough getting the kids to mow the grass!!) and leave the raking till spring. some of the nutrients go back to the soil, and i need fewer bags!!
    the wind takes care of the front yard, though.

    Very nicely stacked, George! You did an excellent job

    and your moon & sunset pics are…WoWingly BEAUTIFUL!

  11. moorebloglife Says:

    George George that sunset is off the charts! I think we are all on the way to your house to see tonight’s OK!

  12. Carletta Says:

    My stepdad would approve of your wood stacking. He sells wood part time. The lot he works from is neat and tidy.
    Lovely shots of the moon and sunset. I think the red must have been glowing on the moon.
    I was out last night practicing taking some shots of the moon. I don’t quite have it yet although some weren’t too bad.

  13. Louise Cannon Says:

    I can almost smell the wood burning; it’s rare scent here. When I DO smell that, I am instantly transported to carefree times.

    Gorgeous sunset!

  14. Karen Says:

    Looks like you have enough wood to last through the winter.
    I don’t much like it getting dark so early but it is nice not walking in the dark in the morning, at least for a little while yet.

  15. Fishing Guy Says:

    George: Beautiful captures, Betsy stole a couple of these shots. She forgot all your work.

  16. imac Says:

    Wonderful shots George, You certainly got the knack.

  17. Pam Says:

    Well good for you, George. You got the wood all neatly stacked. Great shot of the full moon and sunset.

  18. Cheryl Says:

    A nice looking woodpile. Who has the honor of lugging in the wood? We used to burn wood, there is nothing as nice as a wood fire burning. Great shot of the moon and the sunset. Certainly a nice end to the day.

  19. lawstude Says:

    great way indeed and we thank you for sharing these. have a nice day.

  20. Rose Says:

    I love that moon and that sky!

    You know heating with wood warms you twice: once when you cut it and stack it and the other when you burn it.

  21. Sylvia Kirkwood Says:

    I love your moon! And I love having a wood fire during our long chilly winters. Thank you so much for your visits, I do so appreciate them and your comments.

    Have a lovely weekend!

    Congratulations on a job well done 😉
    Love the Autumn rose … don’t envy you raking leaves … LOVE your gorgeous moon and sunset photos! Both are beautiful.
    Hugs and blessings,

  23. Hilda Says:

    If my husband saw your wood piles, I am sure he will be very, very glad that we don’t have winters!

    The full moon and the red glow are awesome!
