The above picture is of our chimney sweep "sweeping" one of our chimneys. There is more than one thing disappointing about this picture. First, it looks nothing like the lovable sooty Bert dancing with Mary Poppins over the rooftops of London. Second, our chimney sweep told us that our fireplaces are not up to code thus unsuitable for hosting fires. This is very sad news for this time of year.
And, so that I don't leave you totally down and out with that headline, here is a very happy picture. A bunch of broccoli from the garden eaten over the weekend. The good news? It was SUPER yummy. Don't let them tell you all vegetables are created equal. They aren't.
