Illustration Friday: Popularity

Winter chores that top my popularity list:

1. Stacking wood in the wood shed.

There is nothing better than stacking wood by lantern after a long day at work.
I love the soft light and smell of the wood. We hung a little window from a salvage shop
and stacked wood around it to look like a wall.

Makes it fun to see the glow from the light inside..

2. Taking out the wood stove ashes in the sled.

This requires snow, but so much fun to pull the ashes through the snow instead of carrying them!

3. Freeze-drying the laundry.

The wash will steam as I clip it to the line.
Freeze. Dried. Sheets.
Do I need to say more?


4. Shoveling snow.

We haven't had much snow this year.
Not as much as last year at least.
I'm missing it.

Wishing you a wonderful week and loads of fun..
chores and all!

Two questions - does your blogroll buzz from the now dead Blogger Buzz, or is that just a play on bees? And can you, freeze dry sheets? If they are frozen solid, when are they dry???
So glad you are back to blogging, going to put you on my blogroll!
