Home Again, Home Again

I'm back from the cottage now, and working on getting used to things as they are. No lake view, no whispering pines, no friends waiting in the living room.
Sunday Cottage and Char

Sigh. Back to the noise and limited views of my little neighbourhood.
But it's still nice to get home.

It was a great time away. We all spent a lot of time reading, and Charlotte and I played with our sticks and string. I finished my one project, and started three more. Apparently, the limited attention span that develops while on vacation can prompt a wicked case of startitis.

Charlotte may also have done a little recruiting.

Jonathan and Char crochet

We had one evening enlivened by a visit from this little guy.


We were very brave for city folk, and did manage to drive him back out the patio door. Unfortunately, we also succeeded in inviting in several hundred mosquitoes during the fracas. I was tempted to invite the bat back in to deal with it.

Charlotte and I also spent lots of time playing with our cameras.

There was plenty to snap.

But the most tangible memory of the weekend is one I'll share tomorrow. All that relaxing has worn me out and it's time for me to get to bed. My own lovely, soft bed.

Sigh, it is a bit of an adjustment - like being awake and having to go to work this morning. Love your pics!!

Sounds like a lovely, relaxing time. Well, except for the bat; that probably was not too relaxing.

I am going blind trying to figure out what it says on Charlotte's sweatshirt: University of [something that ends in M].
