A Bit of Pomp and a Whole Lot of Circumstance
Hold On To That Feeling

Season Opening . . . FIRSTs

We had a very nice, extended weekend up at our lake cottage.

It was a bit rainy . . . and gloom-ish . . . up north.

I'm always surprised how far behind "spring" is . . . once you drive a few hours straight north.

But it'll catch up soon!

We did a lot of work this weekend.  Raking and patching and cleaning and organizing.  I even did some KonMari-ing.  (Actually, it was pretty extensive KonMari-ing.)

Tom got the docks in pretty much single-handedly.  (Well.  I did hand him a hammer once.)

Mostly, though, it was just a great weekend of season opening "firsts."

First campfire.

Enjoy your summer at the cottage! It's a great getaway from the fast paced city life! Everyone looks relaxed, even though you worked hard to make it happen.

Patty

Happy Spring and camp opening! So relaxing and good for the soul to be out of Dodge! And 112 steps...hello work-out!

Bonny

What a great weekend! I'm impressed with Tom's strength to put in docks single-handedly, and also by the 112 steps. Enjoy your time up north this summer!

Jo

Brrrr...it's cold and rainy here and just looking at those flipflops made me shiver! The dogs look like they're all in for the cabin life!

Chloe

So that's what a Mayfly looks like! Hope they are not too pesky because they are downright pretty. Sounds like you are in for an idyllic summer. Your weekend sure looked like it.

Vicki

A perfect set of firsts to set the stage. Yay Summer!!

Mary

it's chilly where we are this weekend (all things relative of course!) and I'm enjoying red wine on the deck. with a jacket!
