I spent most of the day upgrading our wood box to a wooden storage chest. We had firewood up until last week when we finished it off. We didn’t plan on having it the whole winter though. So I took the wood box I made a couple of months ago and added a top with hinges, lined the inside with some sheets and made it into a linen storage box in our front room. We will add a pillow kind of top to it so people can sit on it, or some kids could sleep on it for a nap.
Cautious, careful people always casting about to preserve their reputation or social standards never can bring about reform. Those who are really in earnest are willing to be anything or nothing in the world’s estimation, and publicly and privately, in season and out, avow their sympathies with despised ideas and their advocates, and bear the consequences.
