I've had my eye out for cut logs sitting on the side of the road for what seems like an eternity and yesterday Lady Luck was finally with us! Chancing the fact that I looked like a total lunatic heaving these gigantic sawed tree trunks into the boot of our Golf while two children sat staring in their carseats, I loaded up and drove off more excited than North will ever be about these versatile logs.
This weekend we will continue peeling the bark back and then sand around the tops and edges. I don't think I will wedge them into the ground because I like that North can use some brute strength to roll them onto their sides. Burns off that masculine energy (you know what I'm talking about mothers of boys!).
Thanks (again!) to Tricia for introducing me to this concept months ago.
