Descent . Daily Post Challenge

I did a reblog post when I first saw this challenge, and while that post is appropriate, I felt like I was cheating. These stairs might look familiar as I posted them from a different angle a couple of posts back. But this time around, those silly little orples are at it again — Olivia and Oscar tagged along so they could play in the stairwell while I chat with you guys about the daily post challenge. The clock flipped over, over an hour ago EST, so I might be a day late — nothing new there. It’s a good thing that there’s that old saying ‘better late, than never’  —  one of my favorites sayings.

The owners are renovating Swannanoah, so one day these old walls will be re-plastered. No matter; the orples don’t mind the exposed bricks, or the missing window panes. They are too busy having fun now that they are free to be whatever it is they want to be. Olivia and Oscar have been relishing their adventures ever since they were set free from their orange tree. Now it seems, I’m going to have to put them on a leash if I ever want to find peace again. I just hope they don’t fall down that descending staircase in the meantime.

    • Thank you, Elizabeth. I really appreciate your visit and your encouragement. As you get to know these two better, you’ll find Olivia to be a bit bossy, with a ‘know-it-all’ air about her, while Oscar’s a goofy, happy-go-lucky little fellow, just happy to be free.
