On our way back we saw a truck with a huge amount of wood for sale, so we called about it. After Alex's parents agreed to let us store most of it at their place, we bought the whole truck full of wood! This wasn't a pick up truck-it was something like a small dump truck. We brought a small amount of it back to our apartment. Apparently this stuff burns for a long time, so we got a good deal!
We also had lunch at Alex's parents house, and had a good time talking with his dad. Alex's brothers helped us unload the wood both at his parent's house, and at our apartment. When we brought his brothers back home, they cleaned our vehicle inside and out! Our Escape hasn't been this clean in a really long time.We rewarded them with snacks, chocolate, and coffee.
Since we've been out for a lot of the day, we're planning to spend the rest of the day chilling at home. Too much activity in one day makes me tired and kinda grumpy. I'm looking forward to having a fire in our fireplace tonight!
