I have been abandoned at the cottage which I thought a lovely way to get my butt in gear and do some things around here, bike ride, walk and read 2 books on my pile.
It's a bit like "survivor" a warning of a Rogue Bear, no car, no money (bank machine refuses me money and bank says I have to go the nearest branch of my bank which is 40 km awayto sort it out) and very slow internet. Luckily I have lots of old jams jars where I stuff my loose change, so I have been walking to the grocery store with little bag of coins.
The picture above was taken at noon when I finally got dressed and hung up my nightie after sloth-ing on the sofa all morning reading fluffy design books.
I've been cooking.....treating myself to a French Toast breakfast with fresh blueberries.
Followed by more reading....
but so far not the Autobiography I brought with me to read.
My "working" week is turning into more of a 5 day retreat.....a rest if you like..an over indulgence of
frothy coffees (my friend gave me her old espresso machine) and afternoon Mohitos with the locals on my deck.
I am actually networking. Over drinks I got chatting about my newest project - refacing the kitchen island with old panelled doors. Turns out Ken, (neighbor) loves workiing with old "Bits" and is super excited and willing to build it for me.....
By the end of day 1, I had finished my half read novel and "read" a whole stack of "picture books"
And...I lay on one of the boats docks in the sunshine....a lovely feeling as the dock sways.....and listened to the "wind chimes" of the pulleys clanging on the sail boats.
