I live alone with my preschooler in an off-grid cabin on a remote island off the coast of British Columbia.

In early April I discovered the last of my double tarped firewood was wet. Somehow a trickle of water had gotten in with the winter rains. Most of the wood was ok but some of it was quite wet. I quickly moved all of it into the roofless woodshed that I have been building and put a piece of plastic over the wood. The woodshed is located in a very sunny spot in my yard and I knew it would dry out much quicker there than the shaded spot where it had been. The weather has changed now and I rarely find the need to light any fires in the woodstove. Yesterday I completely finished framing the woodshed although the metal roof is not on. I will order that the next time I buy lumber. Until then I will be putting plastic over the framed roof. It's been a long dusty haul to get to this point but my heart and eyes lift graciously to the eternal God for his gracious blessings.
