My daughter, Erin and I are so excited to work on the shoreline, that we have now our very own waders. Not many high school girls can say that!
Here is a brief recap of our first weekend. We closed on Friday and started the process of “moving in”. Being a planner, I thought I had it all figured out, at least the creature comforts part of it. I will admit that my husband did the “heavy lifting.” He attended the closing, signed all the paperwork, got the van, picked up and moved the furniture, and changed out the locks.
I was put in charge of the living areas and I will admit that my focus was the books, the coffee and the wine. On Saturday morning my family went outside to begin the work out there and they left me alone inside the cabin. I will also admit that the first thing I did was to set up my bookcase. I had packed up all my favorite books from home and I assembled the bookcase and put away all of my books as my first order of business.
Then I moved to the rest of the cabin. I put away the pots, pans and dishes and then lovingly unpacked my coffee pot and wine opener. I put my coffee grounds in the freezer and my bottle of white wine in the new refrigerator. (Hey, thanks for getting that Sean! Was it heavy?)
We worked hard on Saturday and so we all slept well. I love my Sunday morning quiet time. I spend it with a cup of coffee and a book. As usual, I woke up first and I made my coffee and got out my book (my current read is “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins). I went to pour my coffee into my mug when I when I realized that I forgot to pack coffee mugs! Resourceful and optimistic, I set out in search of a glass cup. I finally found a glass measuring cup the kind some people use for baking things and poured my coffee into that.
I finally found a use for that darn thing!
This final picture is my husband and I on the front porch of our new cabin. We are officially cabin owners. Let the games (and the work) begin!
