This Farm girl learned a new skill

A couple of times a week, I walk past it. I stare at it, and try to figure it out. I ask myself, "Can I do that"? It's the Log splitter. Last week I decided to try. It didn't look too hard. So, I rolled it out of the garage, put gas in it, and tried to figure out how to start it. Once I started, I didn't want to stop. It really was fun!

I split this little stack, and moved it up to the porch. 
 Then this one..
 And this one...
 Then this one. Sweet Man informed though, 
that the middle of the driveway might not be the best place for it. ;-)
 So I rolled the splitter over 'here' and split some more. All in all it took me about 4 days to split a couple of months worth of wood. The neatest thing about this? When the Log splitter is going you can't hear a thing. Every once in a while one of the princesses would come out to tattle on the other one. Some one wasn't sharing like they should, or finishing their school papers. I would just wave and mouth "Merry Christmas". :-) It was about the most peaceful 4 days I have had in a long time!
I was so proud of my new skill, I even took a day to go over and split some of Dad's wood. Although, I am realizing just where all the muscles are in my body, for they are all pretty sore right now. ;-)
