Every day is an adventure – 10/365

the ubiquitous wood pile

We live in a cold place, beautiful yes, but it can be quite cold in winter and conversely quite hot in summer.

When we first moved here I wondered why everyone was so intent on getting wood piles ready in January when the temperature was in the high 30s. I soon learnt that if you want to stay warm in winter then you need a decent wood pile, as most people still use slow combustion wood fires.

Collecting wood is like a national sport here, weekends are set aside with vehicles, equipment, friends all lined up to go and collect wood.  Then when you’ve cut it up, collected it, loaded it into a ute or a trailer, you then have to come home and unload it and stack it into the wood pile.  It’s a big business indeed!

This little pile is just for a few days and I can proudly say that I helped stack it!

What an adventure!

Don’t know what my Every day is an adventure project is all about then read on?

Every day is an adventure is a new project for me, where I will post a photo every day for 365 days (not necessarily taken that day) – sometimes with words, sometimes without.  I believe that everyday should be an adventure!

The photo might be mundane, might be exciting, might be obscure, or it might be just a different take on something relevant to that day!!  I use my iPhone for my photos and edit them sparingly. You can click here for all my Every day photo project photos in one place.

Please share your adventure with me by leaving me a comment or a picture, I’d love to hear from you.

    1. Yes, I was a girl guide so being prepared is something I know all about!! Thanks for your lovely comment, it means a lot. We don’t get nearly as cold as you though. 😊❄️❄️


  1. Love getting in the wood 🙂 We get a young chap with a wood splitting business to come in and work for a couple of days from time to time. Paul has the wood cut to size and he puts it through his machine – he can split enough for a year in a day! I then get the task to bring it in. I love it! Such good exercise and great to be outside doing something that requires no brain – it’s wood gathering therapy. A lovely post 🙂

    1. I can imagine that this would resonate with you! That sounds like a great business to be in. I must admit we have started ordering ours in lately (although it’s technically cheating), I still have to help sack it and bring it in so I’m involved. Thanks for your lovely words I always appreciate your support.
