As fall comes to a close and winter fast approaches, we say goodbye to our little summer cottage for the season.
It’s always a sad but happy time, to look around and recall all the memories from the summer passing away.
The lake becomes a bit more moody, preparing for winter’s chill to come. The dock and boats will soon be taken out and tucked away for the impending snowfall.
Goodbye to long talks in the screened porch, and casual dinners around the table.
Goodbye to summer naps.
Goodbye to laziness.
Goodbye to wooden buoys.
Goodbye to weekend bag filled with swimsuits and shorts.
Goodbye to little vintage table for visiting tiny people.
Goodbye to relaxing and game playing.
Goodbye to summer days, lazily reading stacks of magazines, when taking a break from the sunshine.
Goodbye favorite vintage painting.
Goodbye to our version of a guest book.
And goodbye to best outdoor shower in the universe! How I will miss your warm spray, with the sun beating down on my lake soaked skin.
