Rowe - Where the air is clean, it's so quiet at night in the winter your ears hurt from listening so intently. The nights are completely dark except for the stars - millions of them. The smells are of nature, earthy, warm. The winters may be longer, the snow deeper, the house much colder but the trade is exhaust, the sound of cars, planes landing over your house and so much light pollution that you only see the major stars. I'll take Rowe any day and some day I will be there for good.

Moving Along on the "Project"
Photo of a fire in the oven - this is the second in a series
of small fires to temper an oven that hasn't been used
since 1940 or earlier.
Russell brought the panel for the fireplace over on Thanksgiving
weekend. It has to acclimate for a couple of weeks before it
can be installed.
Beautiful - can't wait to see it in.
Stripping the door to the stairway. Interesting paint choices back in the day.
Stripped - waiting for primer.
Looking like we could make our Christmas deadline.
