Hello 2012!

Yes, I do realize that I've been extremely neglectful of the blog.
No, I am not proud of it.
The end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012 have brought on a list of things to do.
Or occupy my time.

As time unfolds, you will have a better understanding of what I'm talking about.
Until then, you need to stay tuned.
One thing that I can share with you 
is that we have a lot of plans for the cottage.
The kitchen continues to be at the forefront of our remodel
 and we finally have a fire under our
you know what's.
So hopefully you'll start seeing some work take place.

The carpenter completed the fireplace. 
We're very happy with how it turned out.

Lousy quality.  Early morning darkness, too!
My husband is going to kill me (not seriously!)
For Christmas Rob bought me an insanely amazing camera
that I have absolutely no clue how to operate.
I continue to use the old camera. HA!
Thus, him killing me.
I'll get there
Another new year resolution...better quality pictures on

The fireplace needs a good coat of paint. 
We haven't gotten around to that quite yet
But that too shall happen.
This year and move in particular have taught me one thing.
these things take time.

What are your plans for NYE?
This year the hubs and I plan on laying low.
That sounds nice for a change.

We were very blessed in 2011.

May 2012 be just as wonderful.
Wishing you joy, love, and prosperity in 2012!
