Fixing This Old House

Shivering in white in 2007.

The old homestead has needed a sprucing for many years. Fresh paint or siding? That was the question while the roof was finally shingled last year during October. The powers that be decided to go with siding this spring. But May was too cold and wet with snow and rain for such a big project. Juneโ€™s weather has been kinder, so work began straight away.

Notice how scraggly the spruce tree became.

Complications arose, of course, which extended the project. But today, at last, the place is dressed in her new clothes.

Looking sharp. Finally!

      After 10 years, it was time. Now we are hoping the siding will hold against the wicked winter winds we get on the hillside.

      His brow seems to be frozen in a perpetual frown. But I know that frown vanishes when I open a bag of his favorites treats. The way to his affection is definitely through his stomach. ๐Ÿ™‚
