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.
