November chores:  stocking wood for our fireplace this winter.  We have access to some properties that let us take down the standing dead wood.  The brush from the firewood becomes kindling for our other projects...burning stumps.  Its a slower process but it works.  6 stumps down this year alone.

It was so cold this morning (-16 C)...I could hear the trees cracking.  The lake forming more ice sounds like whale sounds.  I live in a beautiful, dangerous, wondrous place.
