Cleaning and Thinking

Anniversary roses hang in the little rafters, sunflowers dry in a bucket, burnt orange colored roses dry on the floor and the place needs cleaned.  This is one of my "chores" in the autumn, to clean my little cottage.  Not only do I clean the windows, vacuum, dust and probably move everything in the place, but I sort out the things that I want to pass on to someone else.  Anymore, there isn't a lot that I get rid of.
I wish you could join me there.  We would talk for hours - maybe days.
Little children sometimes seem kind of in awe of an old lady who plays in a dollhouse.  To some children it doesn't seem to make much difference, they just take it in stride.  Others wish they could have a playhouse like Diane.  It's so nice to have the extra dimension to my life that I have with the cottage.  Diane

How blessed you are to have such a lovely retreat right there in your own backyard that you can make yours!

Oh Diane, would you like to trade??? I love your little cottage. I think you and I could maybe do a cottage swap.
I meant to tell you that TT Rabbit is a toy poodle. We shave him, because he gets pretty dirty in the garden, so it isn't very obvious.
Hope you have a great Thursday my friend.
