Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 51 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Getting to The List

Last week I took Weds and Thursday off (in addition to my Friday and Saturday) to get around to that list of things we have been doing around the house.

And we accomplished all of it!

Took down shutters, repaired, painted, re-installed (I am always nervous on the roof)

Old color - pale blue, new color - black (see photos)

Painted front door, put on new locks (black instead of brass), painted mail slot hardware.

Old color - pale blue, new color - red (see photo)

Painted side door in garage.

Put new lighting up on outside of garage and side door.

Replaced wiggling socket in boys room.

Cut grass



Trimmed hedges (we have lots)

Cleaned gutters (YUCK).
This in addition to baseball games, regular inside chores, etc.
It sure is nice to have this sense of accomplishment!
