Washington: A Life

I've just had my mind blown. I've been reading Washington: A Life, by Ron Chernow. 

My daughter's husband loaned it to me. (Thank you, Jon!) It is one of the most incredible, informative, fascinating, and entertaining books I've read in a very long time. There are many elements that make this book so amazing, not least the inordinate amount of attention the author pays to detail. Right now Washington is evacuating New York City and thinking, "What in the world have I gotten myself into?" I wish I could share more with you but I'm way behind on my farm work. Earlier I worked out for an hour. 

Then I ran for a few miles at the high school. 

I just finished mowing but there's still a list of chores that await me.
