We still had lots of snow on April 1, and the storm was coming, but Suki and I went for a walk.
This house is a few blocks away, up a very steep hill that always makes my legs ache a little by the time I reach the top. I love the witch’s hat. That’s the conical room on the right. I wonder which one of the kids yelled dibs on that one when they moved in? This house also reminds me a little of the one in Psycho; I think it’s the angle. The property is high, way above the street on this side.On the other side, the roof reveals a window that looks like a sleepy eye. Do you see that too?
On the next block, I noticed the paper wasp in the cornice. Wonder if they know it’s there? They should get out there with a broom and can of Raid and get rid of it. Gorgeous wood work though. They definitely don’t add this kind of detail these days.
Take a look at the brickwork here. Wow, right? And those windows! I doubt you could replace them with anything similar these days unless you were rich. Absolutely beautiful, and with care, this house will stand a very long time.
This week, temps are forecast to be <gasp> normal! That means 50s and 60s, and a whopping 70 is predicted for Wednesday. I may very well have to take the scooter out for its 2014 inaugural ride.
