About This Blog

Hi.  This blog is about living in a nearly 100 year old farmhouse near the beautiful Great Falls of the Potomac.  As its steward I am constantly adapting her to life in the 21st century and myself to life in a sweet but sometimes demanding old lady.  All things related are fair game:  historic preservation, sourcing for renovation, organic gardening, healthy cooking, all manner of projects related to the lifestyle of a busy woman who learns more from the patience required in dealing with her house than she would like to admit!!

The house was originally built in 1915, but — like so many of her vintage– additions came over time, including most recently a new master and guest bath begun in 2006 (and finally finished in 2009).  I have lived in the house since 1991, raising two children, various pets, and many flowers and vegetables.  My life is an ongoing work-in-progress as is this house!!
