Superlatives

I got home late last night, really late, and didn’t see the new roof until this morning.  I’ve been away for the past few days while the roofing elves did their magic.  It looks beautiful.  It’s a dark charcoal color featuring dimensional shingles.  I decided to go with one color shingle so the effect is subtle.  Now, I just need to fix some masonry, do some stopgap reno on the screen porch and paint some exterior trim to make the township happy.

Today, I’m going to be carting wheelbarrows full of a top soil/mushroom manure/sand to the back yard.  Where are those elves when you need them?

In the meantime, check out this pas de deux from Le Corsaire featuring Daniil Simkin and Maria Kotchetkova.  She’s a dainty ballerina with killer fouettes that don’t travel.

And HE just defies description.  I could watch Simkin dance for hours.  Grace, speed, precision, the man’s got it all.  Truly stunning.
