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.
