A gift of firewood from neighbor


Today was very very windy and icy cold...
Gold fish pond was covered with about 2 centimeters of ice...
Poor goldfishes... tried to break the ice but it formed again...
Despite the weather, pruned the 'kaizuka' (Juniperus chinensis)...
And just then, a neighbor came with this truck load of logs...
You want some? he asked...
How kind! as I happily accepted his offer...
Now, I cannot wait for the shop to install the wood stove for us...  
Lunch today was one of favorite noodles, 'somen' (thin, wheat noodles)...
As usual, my missus put in a lot of veggies such as spinach, soybean sprouts, onions, carrots, mushrooms, a little meat, tofu, and plenty of kimchi... ummm...
