Good thing Santa wears boots!
It was f-f-freezing here in Jersey today. How people work out in the cold all winter long is beyond me. I could never do it. I hate just walking to the car. The porch is really coming along. The landscaper sent out two stone cutters today and they broke through the EP Henry stone wall that they had previously constructed to begin work on the steps that will lead up to the porch. Those guys are artists in every sense of the word. They measure, design, choose stones, dig, lay, cut, glue, and level every single brick. What they create is not only breath taking, but I'm sure it will last for eternity. Unfortunately, they weren't the ones who originally constructed this house. The basement is still leaking and I think it will continue right into the spring. Every two hours we have to trudge down there to suck up more water with the wet vac and lay down dry towels to keep it from getting out of control. I put down some old newspapers I got from the 7-11 store on my way home from work tonight, but I'm sure they'll only last a few hours. I'll have to call a basement water proofing company to give me an estimate, although I hate having to spend money on something so... boring and unexciting. But... we really have no other choice. I don't even know where to start but I guess I'll learn...
