I love strolling through old neighborhoods and seeing the lovely old houses. My favorite place to walk is on Main Street in Hingham, Massachusetts. The houses are hundreds of years old. They are large and elaborate and amazing!
I love seeing wrought iron gates, stately trees and towering windows. I wonder if the people inside are having tea time in the drawing room? Or are they sitting together near the fire, while one of them reads aloud from Great Expectations?
Every day, I strive to make my house look like it has character. But it needs a "keeper" to do all the work. Sometimes I have trouble organizing my time enough to do those little things that bring out the best in this old estate.
So today, I will do a little extra work around here. It will be a work of love - the love of character. Then perhaps, when twilight comes, I will sit near the fire and read from Dickens.
