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.

A Mother's Day Gift

There were some good guesses about what we'd be building with our big
pile of wood.  But nobody guessed it would be a patio cover, and that's
what we built with the help of our son and three of his friends.










A perfect spot for the potting bench. 
And a great place for watching summer lightning storms.


Not quite finished but almost.  When one lives in the
desert like we do, shade is important.  Thank you son! 
I love it!

What a nice place to gather. I'm glad to see you are having spring weather so you can return to your outdoor projects.

Thank you so much for your kind comment on the loss of our little Baggins recently. It is appreciated more than you could know!
