Today marks the 24th week of the 1 Day 1 World Project. When Lisa at Northwest Frame of Mind started this project over six months ago, I did not know how it would turn out here at the Garage, especially in the middle of the night. Being the type who sees the sun rise even during the long summer days, I knew the wee hours of the night would most likely be blank, and I succeeded. The twenty-fourth and final hour I found a very exotic place to be…the Wilson House.
Most of you will recognize this as my home. It was built in 1908 for John H. Wilson who supplied materials to those who chose to make the Livermore Valley their home. I am only the fifth owner of this historic home. It has been a labor of love to restore to its original glory.
Since I could not remember the last time I washed my truck, that was the first item on today’s list. It took all morning to scrub off the dirt on the outside and vacuum up all the leaves, rocks, dirt, and dog hair on the inside.
Maggie spent the morning guarding her yard from the squirrels who have been snacking on my neighbor’s fruit trees. The morning was cool so Maggie also spent some time just soaking up the sun. All in all, a great way to complete the 1 Day 1 World Project.
