Back to the grind

The cottage... Posted by Hello
Talk about frustrating! I just wrote a whole post, and it was promptly deleted as I tried to post it...

Anyway...I returned to Logan Airport last night after a relaxing weekend at the cottage with Mom and Dad. The cottage isn't what it was when I left it -- Dad has since transformed our little brown cottage into the gorgeous summer home you see above. But I didn't have a problem making myself at home -- I immediately set up my knitting corner on the couch next to the fireplace. It wasn't a great beach weekend -- in fact, the closest I came to sunning myself on the beach was on Sunday afternoon, when I got out a chair and read on the beach in jeans and a sweatshirt. So Mom and I did some shopping. We went into town on Friday and visited DeChippenham's. Mom found a sample scarf/shawl in Plymouth Electra that she just had to have, so I started that over the weekend. Mostly, I worked on a poncho for my niece -- it's almost done.

My friend Dan (from the cottage to the right of my parents') showed up with his wife, Luanna, and their kids (both of whom have been born since we moved away), and I got to give them the blanket I just finished for their new baby, Addison.

It may not have been a sunny cottage weekend, but I had a wonderful time. It was hard to leave -- especially since I returned to an empty house. Paul left yesterday afternoon for Minneapolis for work, and he won't be home until tonight...
