I gloat only because I have finished the task after a month of staring at my own tarp-covered pile.

When the subject of stacking wood comes up I find that even the burliest of hard-working men says, “Stacking wood – that’s good exercise!” And believe me it is. It’s bruising and exhausting, and a challenging technical puzzle. When I started to rush I caused a tumble and had to start over. So a practice in patience as well.

I am pausing to note my accomplishment before it all goes up in smoke.

    Even your wood pile is stacked in an artistic manner! You just can’t help making things look good, can you??? I love it!!!

    Wait! Why is all that firewood on the sidewalk in the city??

    Your pile is so attractive it reminds me of food.

    It was outside a small matzo factory in Brooklyn. Pretty crazy.

    it’s true! I’ve stacked wood (although not nearly as nicely as your pile) and it’s a heck of a job. Quite satisfying when it’s done too.

    and I’ll say it again, I LOVE this series
