Wacky Wednesday

The start to this holiday weekend was a frustrating and worrisome one. After noticing a musty odor in our bedroom, we noticed mold in our closet and in one of our bedroom windows. Not exactly a good start to the weekend. We’ve been tackling projects around the cottage and gardens and on a time crunch…

Rainy Days and Mondays

It’s a rainy Monday here today and I’m sipping my Teechino hazelnut roasted dandelion root tea by the fire this afternoon while writing this. I’m gazing out the window at the gentle rain making everything lush looking and a spy a random sighting of a lone aspen or maple leaf fall.  It’s a lovely rainy…

Black Bean Burger and a Busy week

Hello there!! How’s everyone’s week going? I had a busy weekend & week and have had a ton of projects going on at home. We’re still painting the cottage & working on building new shutters for our home as well. Little by little, I’m preparing the garden for Fall & Winter and harvesting the last…

Decorating for Halloween

It was a rainy day here in New England and in between the rain, I started the decorating on the front porch for Halloween (to be posted at a later date, when finished). I added elements of Halloween decor to inside of our cottage as well. Here is some of that decor. Have you started…

Crafting and Decorating

Happy Friday everyone!! Today I was putting out some Halloween decor on the porch & changing things up, as well as adding some indoor Halloween decor around the house & crafted this little decor item with some items around the house. Awhile ago, I had purchased these small square vases from the dollar tree and…

Beautiful weekend and a Special Birthday celebration!

HI there!! This past week was filled with lots of Fall cleaning, more decorating and baking. This past weekend, we celebrated my son’s 21st birthday!! We had such a wonderful time going to our local winery, listening to some great vocal & acoustic performances from the talented Andy Cavanaugh, and having a lovely takeout meal…

Yard work and Fall Decorating

It’s that time again! A new season approaching and Fall cleaning continuing as the Autumnal decor goes up, the crafting bug starts again & yard work begins to prepare for the next season in the garden. I am always reluctant to release my grasp onto summer, but around this time in September, I begin getting…

Happy Birthday Paul!!

Today is my husband’s birthday!! He’s had an eventful weekend to say the least! After our car ended up in the shop days after being fixed for one issue, to find out the issue was worse than originally thought. (Car all fixed now!!) Then, the next day, we had participated in the Town Wide Tag…

Just another Manic Monday… and a Busy rest of the week

After vacation, it’s always hard to readjust and get back to normalcy, but I’m trying. I’m also trying to prepare my home for Autumnal decor by deep cleaning the house all week. There’s a Town Wide Tag Sale in town coming up, and we’ve been trying to gather some items for sale and cleaning, all…

Vacation

This past week I was visiting family in Ohio. We drove overnight and arrived early in the morning. I hadn’t seen my siblings for 4 years and it was so nice to see everyone finally. They had built a home 2 years ago and it was so nice to finally see their home too! As…
