It was wonderful and I really hated having to come back to the city. Everything has started smelling like autumn in the woods. There are signs of it starting like our white hydrangeas getting a tinge of pink to them. We enjoyed the cool evenings with the fireplace crackling. I spent many days with my crocheting and stitching. We treated ourselves to an evening out at our favorite restaurant but time passed all too quickly.
Jos needed time there as he had to get a start on painting as well as gardening. He is a master at trimming conifers and bushes. We have quite a few there that need yearly attention. And he does it all with hand trimmers too...no electric trimming for him! I am always in awe of how nicely he works.
Some people like to get away for vacation and be where they can do nothing. For us, it is most enjoyable in our second home. I don't mind still having my daily routine of cooking and cleaning. It is simply so peaceful to be at Cranberry Cottage.
Our little man Dagi was with us. He is showing his old age so much now and we are simply treasuring each moment we still have to enjoy his cuddles. He supervised my cleaning and decorating just a little for autumn.
I am now busy with my decorations in the house in the city. Come back soon for my autumn house tour.
