It's no secret: around here, we love logs. Big logs. Little logs. New logs. Old logs. There's lots of logs around our place at The Lake.
There's the house, of course:
There's this stubby pile just hanging out in front of our house.

There's these long suckers waiting to be milled.
And there's even some tired old ones waiting to retire.

Oh Dear.

The Husband delights in the irregularities of logs -- the very naturalness of a tree trunk being used as building material. So, when he encounters these quirks in the wood, he makes use of them rather than removing or hiding them. He dubs them "logularities" and even positions them front and center in our new house. Here are some shots of the main log running across the center of the house.

Funky, eh?

What's your quirky love?

I love the logs too so I'm enjoying these photos! (I like the knotty characteristics of our Norway red pine logs!)

The husband loves lemurs. And no, I have no idea why.

It's LOG!
It's LOG!
It's big, it's heavy, it's wood!
It's LOG!
It's LOG!
It's better than bad, it's good.

All kids love LOG!

Does this make you the Log Lady? Did your log see something the night Laura Palmer was murdered?
