Working on stories is a labor of hard work and of love, of course. This past weekend I spent most of my time in the studio putting the final touches on my new show, "Hoosier Roots." I can sit at the laptop for an hour at a time lost in thought and then the need to stand or move calls me out into the open. During those times I peruse the garden or even lift a few small weights just for a break!
During one break I meandered over to Aaron and Karen's new house. They purchased the old Hendry home in Angola this past year and are still in the midst of a complete restoration of the home. I will do a story later on when they move in with photos to show you what this young couple has accomplished.
The porch had been enclosed but they tore it off to bring it back to its original state. It is stunning. I took a few moments to reflect on their porch on Saturday. It was wonderful to sit in the rocking chair thinking about their old house wondering about all that happened there since 1876. I am proud of them for keeping the integrity of this home for themselves and for our community.
