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.

We've been making a little progress here at Mimi's Cottage this past few weeks.

On cold or rainy days the Mister's been slowly working on our bookcases.

On warm and sunny days we've been working on our Summer 2011/2012 project.

Planting a few trees and shrubs, leveling the lawn area, and moving the 
vegetable garden to a new location.

Good thing we found some cheap labor.

This guy works for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

So we're moving along, slow but sure.  

We've entered our ten birthdays in twenty days time of the year.

So we have to take some time to buy presents, wrap presents, bake birthday
cakes, eat pizza, bumper bowl, eat cake and ice cream, go out to dinner, and enjoy 
some time together as a family.

Oh my gosh, LOVE your little laborer. I would be more than happy to bake cookies for him to work here. What a sweet picture!!!

Wow, that's a lot of partying! Sounds fun though.
It's good the little guy doesn't mind helping-soon it will be work for the car keys!

Those long, slow projects are a common thing here, too. We can take forever to finish something. At least it will be nice when you finish.

Plenty of chores to go around it looks like.
September is our HUGE birthday month. We go to the point where we had ONE BIG party to celebrate all of the family birthdays that month. It was actually a lot of fun.

Wow - lots of bdays in short amount of time.

Lots of slow moving projects here but that's how it goes. Eventually we'll see the end!
