This weekend, I visited the cottage for the first time in months and was happy to see progress being made on the new place. Very slow progress, mind you. You will recall that four and a half months ago, the old cottage was finally demolished. And now, in it's place are concrete pilings and a steel frame.


Soon, the hard part will begin. The part where my mom must make actual decisions about appliances, finishes and fabrics. And while Mom has a highly trained eye for colour and impeccable taste, decision-making is not her forte. These could be trying times for the family. Pray for us.
