But with the beauty also comes hard work. Since we'll be relying on our wood burning stove as our main source of heat over the winter, my husband spent the better part of each day for almost 2 weeks chopping firewood... which for those of you who are unaware means- sawing down trees, hauling them to the car, unloading them at our house, cutting them into rounds, and then chopping the rounds into firewood.
Even with all that work though, my husband also feels more at home here. I've never known him to be a homebody, but he loves just hanging around the house now- which I love.
Well enough rambling on my part, I have some better photos coming, but here's how life in the cabin has been through the eyes of my camera phone.
Enjoying the sun one day...
And the snow a few days later...
The cabin at night... cozy
My husband the mountain man- choppin' wood to keep us warm
A Great Gray Owl out our bathroom window
Spyin' on my man...
Made Pumpkin Coffee Cake one night
And enjoyed its deliciousness Thanksgiving morning...
And cut down some branches to make a fresh garland for our front door (I'll be posting a tutorial soon)
I love mountain living.
