Long day

Stacked wood myself. Now before you say "well why didn't that big galoot of a husband HELP you." I chose to stack it all by myself. I started at 7:30am and finished at 1:00pm. And I seriously need to work on my tie in's. My first one fell and I had to redo it...after picking up the stack of wood I'd just done. But oh well. Anyway it's all good and we have almost all of our wood put up for the winter. We have 3 rows that are about 20 feet long and 6 feet high. So I'm pretty darned proud of myself, not to mention it gave me some time to myself because it was WORK and no one wanted to be

Tomorrow I have to process more chokecherries in the morning. But more than likely I'll just be freezing the juice. I need more jars to make jam and I won't be getting those until Tuesday.
And we have a funeral to go to that evening.

It's sad when friends pass away, but I'm glad that he's not in pain anymore. It makes me crazy when people say "they are in a better place" or "everything happens for a reason". When people who are close to us pass, we miss them and it sucks and there isn't anything one can say to make it suck less. But he LOVED life, and we plan to celebrate it. I also plan to remind his wife to have the nervous breakdown she deserves. Feel what you hell with the "be strong" crap, if you need to cry, cry if you want to scream, scream. Do what you need to do to get through the day.

Anyway hug those you love every day, mostly because you should anyway:)
