I met a tile installer in the morning to show him the project. it was so cold that after i set down my yogurt for a few minutes to talk, i ended up having frozen yogurt for breakfast. i had to go warm up after that. i transported the chimney and fireplace parts down to the house, had a pulled-pork sandwich (thanks mom!), priced out some doors at a few places, went out and bought a used torpedo heater after some research and telephone calls, and had a cinnamon roll at Panera while updating the blog. i'm still doing that now. i guess i had better go drop that off that torpedo heater before it's completely dark.
