after a bittersweet friday night of closing up the gr store and then a very busy saturday at the store i was ready for a weekend away.
i ran home from holland grabbed the mutts and drove on up. (joe had been there already that morning with his dad working on some stuff).
(he fixed the gas line that ran all the way around the base of the front of the cottage and moved the random floating light fixtures and ran them through the wall).
she doesn’t look so bad in the dark? hahaha
once there we unloaded the car and took the dogs for a quick walk around the block. we headed to ludington (in a torrential downpour) to pick up some groceries and cleaning supplies. the cottage is a little filth.(we seriously thought our car was struck there was a flash of lightening so bright! and shot straight across the road)
we grabbed dinner at gulls landing (got a massive cheese gut ache) and headed back to do a little light housework.
while joe worked on the bathroom (thaaank youuu) i worked on stripping all of the nasty nasty nasty stranger danger bedding. yea pretty sure i found blood on two of the sheets. blood. SICK
i suited up and dissected that cottage like a CSI crime and threw every last thing into the garbage. i then fumigated the shit out of everything with lysol and cleaning projects.
once the place was hemoglobin free and felt stranger danger free and sanitary we had a glass of wine and read for a little bit. (did i mention that we finally had heat and electric? bonus!)
the next morning we woke up and took the mutts for an early morning beach walk. we walked at least three miles but it was so foggy and beautiful the dogs just needed to run. we saw not one single person and it was amazing.
that afternoon our friends susan and bill came up to visit and helped us formulate a plan for the penthouse
all in all a wonderful weekend. hope yours was just as great!–that>
