At the cottage

We got up here yesterday in the late afternoon. Since we don’t have a well we have a barrel  underneath the downspout of the cottage in order to gather rainwater for doing dishes and cleaning. That is, we do have a summer well but for the past few years it’s been visited by mice. We are about to get a proper well put in close to the cottage wall, with pump and all. That’ll be nice!

It’s nice to get up here, finally. We haven’t been here since Easter! First we had two weeks of great ,warm ,sunny weather and we used it for going to the beach by the lake. Then Kristi went to scout camp, then Marispelet, then painting the house and Kristi working..

The weather is still crap but even that is okay up here. Got up this morning, made coffee, let the dog out, went through the wet grass over to the outhouse, smelling the goooood mountain smell, enjoying a slow morning with my hair a mess- who cares- listening to the radio, crocheting a bit.  We still haven’t  had breakfast! I should get to it. But it is definetly not a day for lots of outdoor activities.
