A wood-fire, the Sunday paper, coffee, typewriter, and (implied) couch. This is the right way to manage a day off.
Wonderful place to type!
Sweet setup. We have too many burn bans to make fires anymore. I want to convert the fireplace to gas so we can enjoy it again. Your mom sounds happier than mine was.
Burn bans? Those are a thing? For indoor fireplaces? Whereabouts do you live? My mom is a happy lady, come to think of it. She's had a fortunate life on the whole and I can't begrudge her any of it.
