We have a
monster master list of “things to do for the house” that reaches from here to New Orleans. And when that badass list gets to New Orleans it will order a drink or two on Bourbon Street, dance on the table and say to us “you will never ever get everything done on this list so you may as well have a drink!” Seriously. The list is that badass.
We are not afraid of that list. In fact, we crossed off item number 856 (well you didn’t think we did things in order, did you?) just recently with the installation of our new storm door.
The old door was probably beautiful, even stylish, in 1966. The people who lived at Lydia Street when it was installed were very happy with the way it looked. And it did its job, keeping the drafty cold air from seeping in around the original craftsman style door.
But this new door is just as hard-working but instead of hiding the REAL door of the house, the storm door tries to disappear.
Painting the porch is also on the badass list, at item number 642. We’ll get to that on another day. Sigh.
