The weather has been beautiful; this is the warmest winter I remember. It's been great for us, having to run to the cottage on the weekends. Normally, February is not the time you want to be doing outside work, but as you can see in the picture below, Iain is able to install an outdoor fixture without wearing his gloves.
This time the sun shone when we were at the lake. We sat in our living-room-to-be and ate lunch, looking out at the view(s). This picture is out the south side window, but looking south-west.
This is our view out the front window, from where we sat munching our sandwiches. I mentioned to a friend, a few days ago, that it all seems too good to be true. We are so very, very blessed. My greatest hope is to have the place in dwellable shape by spring, so my mom can come and enjoy it with us!
