The Propeller

Our boat propeller has taken a beating over the summer. 
We have a brand new one on order.

Tucking in the Boat

When we go home we tuck our boat in. The cover is really essential because the last theing you want to see is water in the bottom of the boat and swamping the engine.

To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee,
And revery.
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.

The Old Swing Set

We have an old swing set at the cottage. It was a hand me down from my sister-in-law in the first place and it has since gone through a couple of paint jobs under our care. We are considering whether we should fix it up one more time for grandchilden to use. There is a certain sentimentality involved in passing it on to the next generation but there is also a lot to be said about getting something newer, perhaps with the advantage of a climbing and play structure as part of it. Perhaps nothing is needed with all that bush, sand water to play with.  We can decide next year.

New Towel

We went to the farmers market in Lac du Bonnet and saw a lady with a lot of machine embroidery products. Now, it isn't like I was looking for new towels, and not like our cottage is a log cabin, but this one just made me smile and said cottage to me.

I just had to set it up on the cabinet in the washroom and take a few pictures.

If you are in the area you might want to contact the lady who did the embroidery and see some of her other items.
