beach glass, periwinkles, a cottage bouquet and sweet, sweet Oliver

Yaaawwwnnn ! She takes a big sip of her hot coffee (avec a tiny bit of sweetner and lots of milk) in her favourite, chipped Starbucks mug (the other non-chipped mug of course is for guest - still sleeping) and resumes typing by the light of her computer monitor. Yawn, yawn, yawn. Stayed up until midnight last night, chatting. Gasp ! This from the never-stays-up-much-past-9pm-girl. So I'm sleepy. Crows outside my office (and guest room) windows are having an early loud and raucous breakfast meeting. The harbour is very still, no wind at all this early morning.

a big day of cottage living awaits.


  1. Good morning S!
    Philip & I are off to the 75 mile yard sale from Onslow through to Parrsboro. You & M Lou should think about going. It runs from 8-5 Sat-Sun. Can't wait to see what treasures I find! Whatever you do, I hope you two have a great weekend!
    ps: Oliver is always so photogenic. Smile.
