Happy Halloween! It's the maiden voyage to the cabin/cottage. It's a little bit cabin, and a little bit cottage so this weekend we've been calling it the cab-ottage. Our new adventure began Friday night when Gwen and Sue arrived. Greg and Kelly came on Saturday with the suburban loaded up.
Greg sprayed off the roof as best he could, and cleaned out the gutters. Yuck! But he did a great job despite teetering on a 8 ft. painting ladder. I'll be getting a nicer ladder in hopes that Greg will still help me with future projects ;)
The Gifts: Mr. Coffee and a pretty full propane tank! We took a look at the gauge on the tank, and it's sitting nicely at 70%. Thank you previous owners!
We got a great start this weekend and tested all the things we could. Great water pressure in the shower. Even the TV works and we fell asleep to the World Series. Earlier in the evening we went into Hersey for a beverage run and stopped at the local grocery. The owner was thrilled to show us around this country one-stop shop and gave us a taste of small town living. But we took our road trip a bit further and picked up some cold ones at the party store in Reed City.
Gwen assembled the butler (utility cart) and it works perfectly by the slider. Gwen also tackled the frig. Greg fought with the old microwave until he just cut the cord to get it out. Gwen donated a little bit bigger and newer microwave, which looks and works awesome. We also rearranged the end tables and lamps to cozy up the living room a bit.
