I walked by the wood stove today and something captivated me.
Yes, most of my blog posts are about sharpening chainsaws, cutting firewood, splitting firewood and stacking firewood. But that’s just a means to and end.
The reason I do all the work is for what you see in the picture above.
What do I see?
- Self Sufficiency. A wood stove heating a house with no reliance on big oil, big gas or big electricity.
- A clothes dryer.
- A clothes warmer. Have you ever put on a coat or pair of shoes that was lying in front of a wood stove. No matter how cold it is outside you carry that heat with you while transitioning from indoors to out.
- A peaceful place. Who doesn’t relax when seated in front of a fire?
