Leaving my Mark

In  bygone days, when builders constructed or repaired buildings they would often leave a symbol on the property to indicate who had completed the work.

Today, I intended to spend a few hours repairing the loose stucco on one of our chimneys and then enjoy the rest of the beautiful sunny day. However, on closer inspection of the chimney I really had little choice but to strip off all the stucco and repair the whole stack above the roof line.  

Six hours later I was feeling fairly self-satisfied with a job well done, given this is not my profession, and so I thought I would add my own little symbol to my work.

I had made a few of these during my pottery with spare pieces of clay and really have no use for them, but now one sits fairly discreetly on our chimney.

Egocentric behavior? Oh yes, but it appears ’twas ever thus, so why not? 🙂
