Little Lumberjack

Little Lumberjack

So we had our cord of wood delivered today. An unusually warm November day, nearing 70, but hey, that's fall in New England. You get firewood delivered, you have a heat wave. We just learn to anticipate these things. Still, it was great to be outside and everyone pitched in on the stacking effort, even Sofia who made do with some pink and white mittens since she apparently misplaced her workgloves. Everyone was having a grand old time until David lobbed a piece of wood toward the stack and it bonked Sofia on the back of her head. Ten seconds prior to the incident, Ernesto had said to David, "Now be careful not to ever throw the wood." Maybe he misheard.

After some ice to the back of her head and a call to the doctor's office, we were pretty well assured that she was going to be okay. In fact she was back stacking wood before I even got off the phone with the nurse who said, "she must be pretty tough."

Yep. She's a lumberjack and she's okay.
