We grilled out some burgers and hot dogs, enjoying the sunshine and much cooler temps this week in Wisconsin. I also was able to cook during the day and not roast myself outta the motorhome. Simmered up some taters for tater salad and a slow cooked a pot of calico beans. Temps are finally in the "normal" range around here. (mid 70's days and 50-60 at night) While the others ate, I hung around with Mason on the blanket. First I fed him a bottle, then I was having fun feeding him green beans! Wow... 4 months old and now working on veggies. What a little man.
The other reason the kids came to visit was that Steve and Dan loaded up our recliners into the back of Dan's pickup truck. They will match in the kid's livingroom and we are glad they can use them. The loveseat gets delivered today, so we needed to get the recliners out last night.
After dinner, little Allegra and I walked back down by the water to see the fishies, and the sparkles on the water from the setting sun, and we picked up some acorns from the ground. Seeing the world through a 2 year old's eyes is FUN! She posed as a model for us and we plopped little Mason down for a shot. He was not happy about it. Guess he wanted the camera for himself?
It is sooo nice to have this cottage to park at for a week. Located in a quiet location along the shoreline of the Green Bay. Thanks again to Ernie and MaryEllen for letting us park here to enjoy your wonderful vacation abode.
I am waiting this morning for the loveseat to be delivered by McMahons of Luxemburg... they will carry it right in the motorhome and assemble the backs on it (they come off for transportation) ...
This noon, I am meeting up with daughter Erin and little grandson Clayton. They have his 4 month old checkup today and then we are going out for lunch. After that, Erin has a dentist appointment, so I am going to watch little Clayton for a while. Looking forward to more time with the wee grandtots. This weekend we will be babysitting both Mason and Allegra on Friday night in the motorhome. Thank goodness for portacribs! Allegra is going to sleep on our loveseat --- but I am sure she will end up bouncing around in our big bed too!
I took some of my flowering baskets from the house before we left. One is a big begonia and the other is a climbing rose vine. While here at the cottage I have them setting out on this cute wishing well. Otherwise they can hang from the awning when it is extended. I also have a windowbox of coleus that is growing well too.
So I guess when we get to the campground next week, we will start looking like full-timers when we put out flowering garden plants around our rig, eh?
(this portion added now after 9 a.m.)
The furniture store found us, and delivered our new loveseat!
Backed in their delivery truck right up in front of the motorhome.
Quick as a wink, they hauled in the seat base bottom piece
through our narrow 24" motorhome door.
(we measured in advance)
They adjusted the bottom screws for the padded carpeting on the feet.
While they went to the truck for the back rests, I snapped a pic of the seat base
They snapped the clips on the backrest sections and pushed it into place!
The little bench type coffee table with the woven mat in the foreground also doubles as a stand for my table loom. It can roll up to the seat for me to weave, or roll away on the casters to the other side wall when not in use.
I am sitting on it right now as I type this. Pretty comfy, I must say!
