Oh! Good news! I got a check from the college two days ago with the money left over from my student aid, and it's enough to pay off my truck with a bit left over. So truck payments can go towards getting that camera that I've had my eye on for some time, and hey presto, I could have a camera within a month! (At least, I hope so. *crosses fingers*)
Tomorrow Isaac is renting a woodsplitter to cut some wood up into more manageable chunks for the stove--wait. Perhaps I'd better start over.
About a week ago Isaac went out to the local dump and found a bunch of huge slabs of oak and hickory wood that seems to be cured and in perfect burning shape. Ordinarily the wood could be chopped by hand using a maul (like an axe, but quite a bit heavier), but it's too big to move easily much less split. So a wood-splitter is in order.
Long story short, Isaac found a woodsplitter to rent for $20 for the day, and Mike is coming over to help split wood tomorrow afternoon. And possibly stay for dinner...it depends on if his policy towards money vs. food has changed. XD I might be here, or not...it depends on if I get out of class early enough. Obviously I won't be taking pictures, but if tomorrow is anything like today there really isn't any point to take pictures because there'd be snow blowing and they'd be so bundled up that you couldn't tell who was who.
...I still miss my camera, though. *sniff*
