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 Visit

Last week these two little sweetpeas and their parents came for a visit.
They used to live less than a mile away.
Last summer their Daddy got transferred six hours south of us.
And so they moved.
It's been hard.
It was 31 degrees outside.  Perfect weather for a popsicle.

First we did a little house cleaning.

Then we fed the ducks.
And a great big goose.

We're so lucky to live about a mile away from this pond.
It's a stop over for the birds that migrate in the fall and spring.
Some birds live here full time.
People can fish here.  We like to walk around it. 
It's a great place to take little grandchildren who've migrated
too far from their Mimi and Grandpa.
Did I mention it's been hard?
