Readin', Writin' and Relaxin'
Post-Script: I didn't get around to typing this up and posting it until today, so it's a bit out of date. Last night I spent several hours in my new backyard seating around, stoking bits of scrap wood into the new chimenia, enjoying the cool evening.
This morning the city inspector came around and gave us his blessing. Soon after, we moved in the patio furniture and it's looking more like home. There's a bit more decorating and furnishing yet to do, which might take some time to finish, in order to spread out the cost over a longer time period.
Later, I "went to town" with the miter saw and a barrel of scrap finish-grade wood strips, a gift from our former neighbor who was a handyman that did cabinetry work, turning what had been clutter in the storage shed into more fuel for the chimenia.
Typing with this old Underwood was a real joy, I had forgotten how nice the action feels, and it has a classic font. Photos via Lumix G5.
