Romantic Easter Weekend

Two of the kids went to New York City this weekend, and the other is away at university.

So my husband and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to spend a romantic weekend alone at the cottage.

After a hair-raising slide down the icy road into the cottage, and then gunning it up the driveway, we arrived at our front door ready for a drink by the fire and a steak dinner.

But first, we had to get in.

Oh....my.....God....

Is that the door in from the driveway into the screened in porch?? You've got to be kidding....Sorry for bragging about the weather in Florida (well, not really)

OK, it has already been said but I'll say it again - Oh My God.

At least the sky looks sunny...nice for digging.

How was it when you got inside?

Wow! Looks like you might have been able to have a little mouse steak once inside, too? (They've been alone in there for a while, I'm guessing?

We used to live in Ballston Spa and in Webster, NY. LOVED the Adirondacks; a great escape... A bit far for you, though, I'm guessing.

Aiyee!

And here I was whining that it snowed today a week after the last of our snow had melted. I will now go outside and kiss the brown grass and its fine dusting of wet snow crystals. Praise be the damp cold earth under my palms.

You have my sympathies.

It was really cold but sunny at least, and eventually we made it inside. No mice inside, it was nice and toasty warm and we poured ourselves a large gin and tonic and indulged in a steak dinner by the fire.

Yes, Yutha, that is the screen door. And an extension ladder stuck in the snow. There was eight feet of snow on the roof, which was shovelled off onto the porch. I think it was a good thing we removed it, as the front door was no longer in sync and it had a crack over the frame so that was a lot of weight up there.

I'll post more pics in my next post.

Love y'all!
