Ruby Tuesday: Firewood for winter



http://workofthepoet.blogspot.com

My friend from UK commented that it seems it was just yesterday when we were in sweltering heat, and now winter has set it. Someone forgot there is such a season called autumn.

I was in a shop in Ponsonby when I saw these neat sacks of nicely chopped firewood. The water engineer doesn't like burning wood, and we use a gas heater. Touch wood we don't need to turn on the gas yet. LOL

Thanks for your visit. I do not think we have shell fish..
This firewood is a must in Norway:-)
Hope you have a great week!

Serline said...

Do wish someone would come up with more environmentally friendly ways of keeping us warm in winter and cool in summer...

Yes, Jama, the sack is the same material as onion sacks. I must post a photo of my onion sack. I bought 1/2 a sack of onions from the Indian store, and I took the onion sack hoping to use it soem times.

Yes, We love Tun Mustafa store. I tell everyone about it.

Hard for me to think about needing firewood just now as spring is in full swing here. But I've never seen it packaged for sale like that. Good choice for Ruby Tuesday.

Here's my RT entry.

so nicely packed firewood.i thought you people can easily get them from the nearby forest/wood if there are around.anyway,i think the easiest is to buy them.

Hahaha, we defintely dont need those woods. It is so hot here.

I love wood fires but truly they are not good for the environment. :)

I've never seen wood packaged like that before. Some folks make pot scrubbers with the onion sacks. Imagine how many you could make with those wrappings. Or maybe how big?

Hopefully we're finished with firewood for a few months. We have an electric heat pump, but still use a wood stove for the main room in the house.

We are moving quickly into spring here. We have had several lovely, sunny and warm days, highs in the 60s. I cannot wait until I can shut the furnace off til next fall. Today was cool and damp so had to run it this morning.

Winter! That is one word I don't want hear for awhile. We had a brutal winter. Spring is almost here. Nature has already teased us with some beautiful days, though it is chilly today but not freezing. It will be 80 on Saturday. Whoo hoo! To the beach I go!
