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!!
