Last Friday...Last Sleepover.. Sunset..Moon.. Bonfire..and Fire Of The Season......













It sure seems like longer than a week, since we were at the cottage...
What a crazy busy week it has been since then...
We will go tomorrow...
Clean out the fridge...
Drain the water lines...
Give her a hug...
And wish her a good winters nap...
I will miss her sooo much...
We will visit almost weekly...
But...
It is not the same...
As...
Planning the weekend menu...
Putting fresh linens on the bed...
Sweeping everything clean...
Watering the thirsty flowers...
Planning the days events...
Waiting for company to arrive...
Investigating the ever changing beach... 
Catching up with neighbours...
Oh well...
Before I know it...
It will be Spring...
And...
Time to wake her up...
For...yet...
Another glorious Season at the cottage...♥️

                                         ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hope all my American peeps had a lovely Thanksgiving...
Weather yesterday must have been perfect...
Today...
Not so much...
Still warm...at 15*c...
But...a strong wind and rain...makes it feel a lot colder...
Boyfriend and I went out for a very delicious lunch...
I had a burger...it was excellent!!
We are spending a quiet afternoon...he is on antibiotics :o(
I have watered all my indoor flower friends...
He is watching American football...
I think I will do some crochet...making a wee toque for a friends new granddaughter♥️

Enjoy the rest of your day...
I will take pictures tomorrow at the cottage...
Have a great weekend...

                                 Cheers!  :o)

  4. I wonder what your cottage does when you are not there? Maybe she has tea parties for the sea creatures. That could be made into a children's story!

  6. I bet your cottage will miss you as much as you miss it :) I imagine it's quite lonely without all that love.

  8. It's very bittersweet, isn't it? We would visit our lakehouse maybe three times between January and March. A nice fire and some good meals, but it would be desolate and other than bundling up for a few walks, reading or a visit to a warm restaurant, we seemed to get a little stir crazy.
    We are in for some cold weather, too. We are heading north to Wisconsin to meet some friends in a sweet little town for some Christmas shopping and merry making! It will be in the 30's so I'm bundling up!!

    Have a great weekend. Wishing The Boyfriend healing vibes.

    1. It is pretty desolate out at our lake too...in the dead of winter...unless it is a sunny day!
      Didn't close her down....more visits to come!
      Boyfriend doing better....thanks!

  9. Lovely cosy cottage pictures, Linda. The idea of having to close up a house for the season is quite unknown to us, with our warmer climate. When we stayed at the lake cottage in Canada in May this year, I was intrigued to hear that we were the first visitors for 2015, the cottage having been closed down over the winter. You will miss your pretty cottage, but at least you can visit to check on her :)

  10. It just seems like yesterday you were opening up the cottage for the season, time just goes by so fast. It was a rainy day yesterday, stayed home, did some cleaning, some cooking, some crochet and other things. Enjoy the visit this weekend, savour the moment and take lots of photos.

  14. I really like the photo of the stained glass lamp and the late afternoon sun peeking in the room. Yes, before you know it it will be spring again. Too bad we have to get through all the snowy, windy, rainy, cold weather first but this is Canada eh? lol I hope you had a good weekend at the cottage as you say good bye to another season. xx Pam

  15. Catching up seems like it is taking me forever . . .
    I wondered if you checked on the cottage after you closed "her" for sleepovers during the winter . . .
    Lovely times you have had these past weeks . . .
    "She" will be waiting wit more memories come springtime . . .

  16. I always find fall a sad time, like a little death I always think. Things die, end, are over for another year. You know the cottage will be there when spring arrives in all its glory. Sleep tight, cottage.

  18. I think I love the cottage too, especially with a crackling fire to warm my toes by.
    Next summer I'm going to meet her.
