Let's catch up!

Ok so here it is we are on the verge of October! So I have a new job. Our little preschool closed after 52 years. I miss it daily. But I am slowly adjusting  to my new position in the children's dept of our library. It's still just part time just the way I like it. 

Fall is arriving here on the farm. We finnally got the chicken coop done. And not a moment too soon. Nestle the money eating horse is doing very well. Her shoes continue to be more expensive then mine. 

We had the chance to do a historic home tour just outside of Indy, fun but I still love mine better. Always interesting to see where folks stick a bathroom where there was none. 

Our shop vintiques was open over the weekend and I did fairly well and sold quite a few pieces of furniture. Dropping the prices on a lot of stuff to get it out so we can do some work on the building and reopen with a different slant on things.

All in all things are going well in our little area of the map. I hope things are well with you too.

So we got the little house rented just in time to head out to our tiny vacation cottage in Maine ! What a trip 2 days in the car one way! Ugh hate that part. But Maine never disappoints . The countryside is just amazing! The local people are jewels. 

We did a little more to our space this time . New flooring, some painting, and some furnishings and curtains ! It's starting to have a bit of personal feel to it now. Making it our own. The weather was warmer than expected but only in the afternoons. The morning and evenings, and any time spent by the water was fantastic. So here are some pics of the cottage and surrounding areas. The highlight for sure was getting to go out in a working lobster boat, followed by a lobster meal in our tiny place!
