We live in an area that was settled 400 years ago. Our house is over 125 years old. It features a gorgeous dirt basement with raw cut granite stone foundation (that's true...and supposed to be funny), wonky wooden floors (some floor boards measure over 18" wide - which is pretty cool) and 9 foot ceilings - even on the 2nd floor). Just the same, our old house is lovely and functional for our needs. I think, if we ever decide to renovate, I would install a urinal making things easier for the 5 of us males in residence.
For months I have whined about painting the house. I am just about done with it now and am posting a few photos. I have to install the window boxes above the porch...and paint a couple of little things. So, really...I'm not done. Not officially.
This old house was white with blue trim when we bought it in 1996. We painted it "Daisy Chain" yellow in 1998. Hard to believe it's been 10 years and 2 babies since the last coat of paint. Now, it's a blue house with cream and green trim. It's all subtle and groovy.
I know. I hear you...what does this post have to do with running? It's my start and finish line...and where I launder my running shorts, re-charge my iPod and carbo-load.
Have a good weekend.
