A new chimney, and a new tree. Maggie and I both love birch trees, so we bought one about a month ago. The chimney… well… aside from being monstrously expensive (can you say “through-wall copper flashing?”), I was pleasantly surprised at how much I like it. I mean, it’s a chimney. How much joy can a chimney bring?
Turns out: quite a bit.
I think this house is the first place I’ve really considered home. Strange as that may seem.
Anyway. Today was packed. PACKED! Morning mass, then a trip to Rye Playland, then home, then a 7-mile run, then swimming with the kids, then tennis with my oldest… then Maggie went out, so I put the two youngest to bed.
I should be exhausted, but I’m not.
Love to all. Even you, the lifeguard with a tendency to chit-chat instead of lifeguard.
