Howdy Cottage Friends!
This update will be short and sweet so that I can get back to work on painting interior trim. Our electrician just arrived to do the last details, such as hooking up the stove hood fan.

Here's a pic of my garden shed with new storage and a few plants and flowers growing.

My friend Robin has beautiful perennial gardens, which she is graciously allowing me to rob for transplants. This Black-eyed Susans bouquet came from one of those plants.

Not much going on besides what we're doing ourselves. Lots of yard work and interior trim building and painting.

Our refrigerator is moved into place.
I finished the bathroom window curtain.
Rouse came to install the gutters.
They really look good.
I love it. Chuck did an awesome job fulfilling my vision.
There's a surface recessed electrical outlet that can be accessed for Christmas lights, etc.

We do a lot of landscape work.
I had to show you how big my basil has gotten.

Dennis creates a new microwave meal: Breakfast in a Cup.
I expect this to be a very productive week. The heating stove is due for installation Tuesday. We should get the countertops, cabinet hardware and sinks installed this week, too. If so, I'll be cooking in my new kitchen very soon.
I'll leave you with the latest photo of the cottage exterior. (You can see various landscape materials and bags in the picture. That's life right now.)
Have a great week!
