Recently we had some ceiling fans put in on the porch. In my quest to make life just a little bit harder than it should be, 2 weeks ago I decided to stencil the porch floor. I had a heightened sense of urgency due to the fact that the baby was due any day. Being 9 months pregnant also posed it's own logistical problems getting up and down working on the floor. After over 20 hours of working I didn't finish it, but I made a huge dent-- probably 2/3 done. I think it will stay that way for a while. I'm quite happy with the results though.
Last weekend we went to Northfield to help my grandma celebrate her 90th birthday with a bunch of friends and family. She recently fell and broke her hip so the party was held at the nursing home where she is recovering. Her hip is healing well so that is great news and she was in good spirits for the party.

You'd think with the baby due any day we'd wouldn't be thinking of home renovations and repairs. But as the montra and name of the link of the month suggests it's fun to get One Project Closer to the perfect home, or community, or life. The four contributers to the blog and website from around Baltimore create a very This Old House feel.
