Tout It Tuesday - #32

Happy late Tuesday!

We survived our wood chopping this past weekend! D and I came out of the adventure with all our appendages but holy cow were we sore by the time Sunday night rolled around.  We have a 4 foot high by 18 feet long stack of wood in the backyard with about the same amount still piled in the front yard. We just couldn't carry another piece by the time Sunday afternoon ended so there the big pile sits. We will finish hauling it to the backyard this weekend since we get home after sunset and neither of us wants to haul wood in the dark.

I was able to lift my arms above my shoulders today - a great success! I am also able to type without wanting to cry. I pulled a couple of muscles in my hand so grabbing things and moving my thumbs has been a struggle.  BUT next winter we will be able to have a fire whenever we want without worrying about having enough wood.  Woot!

Now onto our Features!

It isn't too early to get ready for Christmas and holiday decorating and this tutorial on how to make paper trees from Wesens-Art is the perfect way to get started.

Need a sweet treat? Mary's Kitchen shared Yummy Cheesecake Brownies. I love the swirlyness!

Marty's Musings gave us a great idea to put into practice for next Thanksgiving. A Blessing Jar. Check out her post to see how it works.

This week's fan favorite is from Jenn's Random Scraps. She shared a recipe for Pagliacci's New York Style Cheesecake. Yum! This looks so good.
