A Snapshot from Finland

I chopped some firewood today. It was good to be in the cold air doing some physical work.

I know of a small hunting cabin in the Adirondacks that has a sign over the fireplace: “He who cuts his own wood is twice warmed”.  In Finnish it’s “Ken omat puunsa pilkkoo, sen tulee kahdesti lämmin”.

I experienced that truth today. I was warm chopping it and now I’m warm by the fire.

I know it’s a bad picture; sorry about that.
