Wood. And Lots of it.

Ryan has been working really hard cutting, splitting and stacking wood for the winter.  He's gotten several phone calls in the last couple of weeks for: "Wood, free for the taking!"  And who can pass up free heat?!

He also went to my parents on Monday afternoon with my brother, Reuben, and they had a FULL day of cutting wood for my parents on Tuesday.  He got home Wednesday night about 7:30 pm, sore, but happy.

Since Tuesday has typically been my long day at work and Ryan helps with Jackson on that day, he took the little guy with him!  Jackson had a great day helping his Nana do the laundry at the nursing home, and playing with his cousin Lena.  He also came home with two new horses, his current obsession.  I know that every parent thinks their kid is the smartest one, but really, his verbal skill just amaze me.  When he was showing me his new "Hoe-sees", he told me: "Lena haf hoe-sees too."  Amazing, I know.  He'll be two next week, and his older brother did not even speak until he was 3.

While my mess maker was gone, I was fairly productive.  All that cleaning mom and I did last week brought several (ahem) unpacked boxes into the light.  I unpacked and organized twelve of them.... ( and no, I did not get finished)

Including my stationary and cards.  This is it, excluding my boxed note cards that would not fit in the basket.
I need to start writing some letters!

thanks for visiting my blog, for butternut squash I just peel and cube the squash then I pour a spoonful of olive oil on a pan then toss the squash and sprinkle it with salt, paprika, onion powder and garlic powder. My favorite is to cook up a couple strips of bacon and then toss the squash in a small amount of the greese after it's done and serve it with the crumbled bacon (you don't need much) but I think that adds a yummy layer of flavor but we did it with out the bacon last time and after it cooked at 450 for about 45 minutes I tossed a tbs of butter in the pan and stirred.

hope you like it
