Vacation Projects At Rockledge Cottage...

This is my first week of 3 weeks of vacation.  I'll be here for the first 2 weeks straight.  Abby came with me.... She loves it here too.  Marc will have to work most of the time but at least we're all together...

Its only Wednesday and I sure have been busy....in the garden planting some new flowers in the 91F degree weather...whew...
A new hibiscus that opened up the next day....
a what will be rose hibiscus in bright red sitting by the grill...
 and some daylillies which it appears I didn't take pictures of...  The place we buy our flowers is having a sale and all perennials including peonies, designer daylilies and hibiscus are all marked down to $7.00!  I HAD to take advantage...

We've had changes to the outside of the cottage...the door and windows at the right corner have been replaced from what you see here....


siding was removed temporarily from the front and windows were taken out...nothing but empty holes on this beautiful day....

then off came the door to the deck....

and voila new sliding door and windows...


Siding is back on and we love the sliding door. 
There are many windows in the livingroom and it makes such a big difference to have even more light come in...and easy access to the deck.


and a great view of the big lake....Lake Ontario...
Now this is what we see into the kitchen....I have been busy working in there today.  I'll show you later when I'm done.  Vacations are great times to pick up and do projects....
next week I'm having a vacation on my vacation....I think unless something else comes to mind...
Have a wonderful week.... Judi xoxo

I love the hanging light and the wallpaper in your kitchen!!! I love orange!!!

What a luxurious view of the lake! WOWZERS!

The hibiscus will be beautiful. Will they live through the winters there, or will you have to take them in?

Love the view, LOVE the view:) I know you all will enjoy many hours on that deck, going in and out of those doors! It will be great when the weather is a little cool out there and you can open those doors:)

Enjoy your vacation and don't work too hard! HUGS!

I was over on Beverly's for her birthday celebration and see that you sent her some amazing cookies! I haven't seen a link per-se in the Pink Links but came over to say hey!

In reading your post, I have all kinds of questions - being that I haven't been around in a while. I may just have to come back and see if I can answer my questions! You look great (scrolled down a bit to other posts).

Take care!
