Three excellent things happened this past weekend:
1. The boiler works! After a few hours and a replaced valve we have heat. It's a good thing, a very good thing. The picture below is of the scary boiler that is in the kitchen. When it was first turned on there was a serious water leak. Seeing as this isn't the time of year to flood the basement, it made sense to get it fixed.
2. The new couch came! It's a thing of beauty. We're afraid to sit on it, let along eat dinner on it. We'll see how long that lasts. The old couch went to a lovely couple in the hood - although we're not sure if they were able to get it into their apartment or not. Fingers crossed.
3. It snowed! Thankfully number 1 on this list happened so that saying it snowed is a good thing.
