It's not like I went anywhere (okay, I spent the weekend at the cottage, but I have been around since then). I took a couple of days off, leading into to tomorrow's Canada Day Holiday, but, like most working Mom's, when I take two days off, i spend then running around, doing more things than one person should really be doing in two days. My husband doesn't get it. He gets home and wonders "just what did you do all day?" I restrained myself from smacking him upside the head, because he just doesn't get it. He doesn't understand how much work is entailed in keeping a house and family functioning. He thinks going to the cottage is throwing some clothes in a bag and off we go. No thought to how the food and other stuff get there. Oh well. I knew this when I married him, and 17 years+ later I'm still around, so it's not a battle worth fighting.
Anyhoo, other than gathering everything we need for this weekend's big work weekend (we are kicking out all extraneous family members (i.e. parents), from the cottage, and are inviting 6 guys up to lay the subfloor and new flooring for the basement up there. They plan on completing it by Sunday morning, while still getting in lots of fishing and poker. Me? I'm making meals, ensuring everyone is fed and beered, and keeping two 10 year olds amused during the times they are not helping. I am so looking forward to this flooring, it's not funny - it will double the usable space at the cottage, making it easier to be around some members of the extended family. And after that's done, we take on the bathroom renos here at home.
But... that's not the main reason for this post - modelled shots of the silver grey merino cardigan are!
How I plan to wear it most of the time: The buttons: and of course, the shoes I bought on sale that match it perfectly! I love these shoes, but they are not "standing around for cocktails" shoes, they are "sitting down for dinner" shoes. (note my normal footwear in the corner there...)
If I'm not online tomorrow -
HAPPY CANADA DAY ALL!
