Welcome to That Old House

Thank you for finding That Old House amidst the chaos of the Internet. Yes, that is our house in the header.
This blog named itself. When I tell local people where we live, they almost always say, "Oh! You live in that old house!"
We do, and I'm glad you've come to visit -- Cass

Snow, Sun and Seventeen Degrees!

Ooooo... baby, it's cold outside.

My daughter in Pasadena watched the sun set over the Pacific Ocean last night, on Santa Monica beach, sharing a picnic supper with her boyfriend. While she's having a heat wave, we are having a cold wave. Or whatever it's called.


Now I ask you, how cold does THIS landcape look? It started snowing again -- just flurries -- and the sun was still shining. I went out on my front porch and aimed the camera back toward the cul-de-sac behind our house. Brrr... I haven't even gone up there to pick up my mail yet today; you can see my mailbox to the right of that tree past the hedges. Too far away!

Even my dogs don't want to leave the house.

I turned around and shot a picture in the other direction. Anyone know of someone who is good at restoring old shutters? And replacing missing ones? We hope to paint the house this coming spring, and I love the old shutters but they are crying out for a visit to a shutter spa.

Yikes I better go back outside and take in the Christmas wreath!

Stay warm, everyone. Unless you are in California, in which case don't tell me that you are wearing shorts and flip-flops today.
