We continue to work on Oakleaf Cottage — this past week my family was here, and Dad worked hard helping us get all the rooms and all the new trim from JB Millworks painted. The place is a mess of painters tape, Dexter-esque plastic sheeting and brown paper covered windows. In short, I didn’t take interior photos this week.
We did, however, pick a few raspberries from the cottage garden and munch on them as a pre-dinner, “it’s 8:30 PM what are we going to do about dinner” debate. The long days of summer have often seen us pushing through the daylight hours until suddenly, our bellies announce they WILL reach for our backbones if we don’t deliver and fast.
We took a short walk around one of the trails this week, but mostly, we worked — which may not sound exciting, but every day we’re a little closer to making this one incredible little vacation getaway. We are still aiming for the end of August/First week of September — just in time for fall colors!
