We're getting ready for winter! This week we had a delivery of good, dry hardwood, just the thing to throw out plenty of heat from the wood burner come the winter months. Yesterday scaffolding was erected along the south side of the house and six more solar panels were added. We thought that we might need to boost our electricity supply for the recently converted Aga in the dull, dark depths of winter.
You'll notice that the day already looks a bit overcast.
Well, hurray, we've had a decent rainfall. It started just as the lads came down the ladder.
Things are cropping quite well from the garden but I'm sure they'll crop a whole lot better now that they've had a good drink.
Next week someone is coming to line the chimney, a job that is long overdue. Do you find that a whole raft of tasks come along all at the same time? We shall feel quite organised for a while, no doubt while another load of jobs-to-do silently musters!
Connie came round to say 'hello' and did a lovely drawing of Himself.
Doesn't he look fine!
