I have NOT disappeared

...I just haven't done anything blog worthy.

Okay, I went to only my third of fourth garage sale of the season on Saturday and got some wonderful hand-painted plates, and a very cute what-not jar -- and then I left them at our summer cottage.

Yes, I know it's not summer, but we went there on Saturday and stayed overnight. Last summer, on the hottest day of the year, we had baseboard heating installed. What a godsend. It extends our use of the cottage by at least 2.5 months a year.

We went back today to take our new-to-us wicker set, and bring back an old box spring and mattress (now sitting at the curb).

Alas, no pictures, but I'll try to take some next weekend. (And hope it's sunny.)

Lots of plans for the cottage this year. New bookshelves in the living room. Replace the bunkbeds (the children grew up) with a day bed. Paint the porch floor. Paint the bathroom (and maybe add beadboard). And paint the big dresser. That ought to keep me occupied for a couple of months.
