One of the mixed blessings of living in a hundred year old (more or less) house is that something always needs attention. Right now it's our front porch stairs.

                                    Having carpenters at the house is the best entertainment.

                                               A tarp tent to keep out the rain.

                                               Discoveries.....the people before us left their marks.

I like thinking of the other stories that have happened in this house, the other families who made it their home. I like knowing that this house has nourished and held other lives, and that we get to be a part of that too.

You've been talking about doing those stairs for awhile now. Everything in good time. How fun that you are finding remnants from other families. I bet the new folks in our old house smiled when they saw the initials painted on the walls under the wallpaper in your old room.
