Time to confess

You can imagine that I make a lot of beds and with that comes a like or dislike for the comforters we use. My favorite, of course, would be linen duvet covers like I use here at home but my linen service does not offer these.  Back to my comforters, there is one style in particular that I have had since the dinosaurs roamed the earth – at least 10 years.  It’s a Martha Stewart quilt. I have 6 of them.  They have been washed so many times that the fabric is wearing thin and has broken and torn all over the place, on all of them. If I were to fix the tears, I would only create new ones, so I don’t even try. Yet I cannot help myself, I put the quilts on the beds anyway.  Usually they go on the beds of guests that I know very well and to whom I can explain why that comforter is on their bed

Because it has this perfect weight
and
it feels really comfy!

So, should you find this comforter in your cottage and on your bed,  just go with it,  you could not be more comfortable sleeping under that thing.


See, it’s this sea-foam green with white stylized flowers. It goes perfectly with the curtains and the pictures on the wall
without being matchy-matchy…
Good night!

The Beach this Morning

It is so dry and hot this summer, my flower boxes, even with the help of twice daily watering, are having a tough time making me happy.  So today, for the first time this season,  I bought Miracle Grow 😯

My plan was to keep my flowers fed with the help of a daily dose of coffee grounds. That actually works very well but now my flowers are pooped.

Long story short, I went into Frankfort to the Hardware store on Main Street and got the stuff.  One never goes into Frankfort without making the loop at the end of Main Street.

The beach was deserted this morning at 9:30.  Some birds were at the water’s edge and there were 2 guys playing with their paddle boards

 

Grey vs. green and shady

The beach is only about 600 yards away and the stairs are really almost done. Yay
