Cottage Weekend

Scott and I stayed at the Cottage this weekend and worked on a few projects. I rescreened storm windows and with Scott's help got most of the ones I had rescreened rehung so that we can now open windows and enjoy the cool Fall fresh air. One window we could not re-install as we do not have a ladder tall enough to reach the window and it would be too dangerous to even try. Of course I cleaned them all inside and out as well so now all this beautiful light comes inside to brighten our time indoors. It got me to thinking that anyone that battles winter blues would benefit tremendously by adding window cleaning to their winter prep routine.

A Dump Load
Scott worked at cleaning out some more of the garage and he has started installing some shop lights to make the lighting better and to update the wiring so it is not a fire hazard anymore. He has the lights in stalled and just needs to run the wire now. At each light he is also installing an outlet - ONE - to plug the shop light into and TWO - to give him safe outlets to use while he is running new wire along the wall to instal new outlets there. He will tear out the old nasty and dangerous wire as he goes along. Scott will make a trip to the dump tomorrow on his way home from work.

 Friday I did a little Retail Therapy with a trip to Kohl's. I bought myself 3 nighties, a t-shirt and a cardigan and I bought Scott 3 nice dress shirts that he can wear to work. The nighties were only $6.40 each and I love that kind... no sleeves and cheap.

Howard AKA "HOWIE"


 Two of the 3 Cottage Kittens that the Mother cat left with us. Callie and Howie are getting more friendly and Howie will actually let me pet him in the mornings and at bedtime. But the third kitten - "Tippy" just comes for the free food and runs if I try to pet him. I will try to get a picture of Tippy for the next post. I am hoping to catch them soon and get them shots, spayed and neutered.

Two large dinner salads with Feta cheese and some Wild Berry Zinger unsweetened Ice Tea was last Wednesday nights dinner p so delicious!


  1. Berry zinger, my favourite tea. Yum.
    The cottage looks lovely Becky and I think you are right about the light helping with winter blues. They aren't as common here in Australia and I think it is because our winters are still bright and the day lengths adequate.

  2. Wow! You guys got a lot done.
    Would be wonderful if you can bring the cats in for shots and to be fixed. Too many unwanted kittens around. These are very pretty cats.
