I had big plans to tackle the front porch floors this past weekend, and even went as far as picking up all the materials. Yet, some of the smaller projects I had planned took a little longer than expected when you throw a dinner party into the mix. So, while I was in the yard attempting to plant bulbs ( I hope something grows); Erick tackled replacing the broken door knob in the bathroom. What a difference it made to change out the mis-matching fixture for brushed bronze – what do you think?!
In the kitchen, I stuck with my favorite fall recipe – Pot Roast! The aroma filled the house and set the tone for a cozy fall evening. I made the mashed potatoes ahead of time, so all I had to do was whip up some broccoli rabe right before serving. Erick and I had the neighbors over for a casual Saturday dinner, which of course turned into a few rounds of Left, Right, Center (the perfect post dinner game when you might be drinking, and yet still want to have a conversation)
All in all, it was another wonderful weekend up at the cottage. I can’t wait to get back after my work trip to get to the front porch floors!
