My first fall in Vermont has not disappointed. I had always want to see New England painted in her autumnal glory, and this year I got my wish.
Whether I was looking out the front window,
driving down our street,
looking at the mountains to the East,
or West, we were overwhelmed with the feeling that we live inside a postcard.
Additionally, our construction crew left us after 3 1/2 months with a much sturdier and more useful (and prettier) house. See the tabs under Kitchen, Living Room, Bathroom, and Back Porch for more on each of the rooms we've worked on.
Overall, the house looks cared for now. Our neighbors tell us how happy they are that we've saved the old girl every time they see us.
And yesterday, we got our stove so that we finally can have a fire in the lovely old fireplace. All is well.
