Getting Ready For Winter


Getting Ready For Winter, originally uploaded by elefanterosado.

Nothing says Vermont like this ubiquitous stockpile of wood. We’ve just added a new heating system, but for economic and moral reasons, we like to heat exclusively with wood culled from our own property. So, it seems, do many of our neighbors. It’s the Vermont way, I guess. We’re just a bunch of thrifty Yankees. Plus, the heat that emanates from wood is sooo much nicer. There’s just something about coming into the house on a cold winter’s day & feeling that cozy heat surround you. And there’s an indescribable warmth about pulling into the driveway and watching smoke curl lazily out of your chimney. It means your husband’s come home early, put the horses and goat to bed, stoked the fire, and probably has something yummy bubbling away on the stove. These are the simple moments that make our simple Vermont life so completely complete.
