Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

The Guest Room and Guests

We've been busy the last couple of days getting ready for company. Two of our very good friends from California are coming to spend a week. We have known these couples for many years. We raised our kids, went camping, enjoyed birthdays, endured morning sickness and the chicken pox, played softball, and almost burned down our house one fourth of July. We love them like family. We're a little older now. We all have grandchildren and we're not as spry as we were back in 1977 when we met. But we laugh and play Trivial Pursuit, we eat, we shop, and we remember. We're so glad they could come and visit. First we did some deep cleaning. It's not very fun doing it but it feels so good when it's done. Then we foofed up the guest room and set up a bed in the craft room. Janis made me the Sweet Dreams sticker on her Silhouette Machine. Cute, no?











So, I'm spending every minute that I can with them. I'll be back in about a week.

It's always so much fun getting together with friends. Hope they can get through the snow. Our son and his family are driving up either tonight or in the morning for a visit with us. It's been snowing all day long. Getting tired of the cold.
