I have written about the cottage before, it’s the place were we really can relax and live a simple off grid life. No electricity and only cold water tap in the kitchen, except when it’s freezing. The cottage is very small, a room and a tiny kitchen. But it’s the perfect place to get energy and escape reality for a little while.
We made s
andwich toast in foil package in the stove for breakfast and discovered that the stove must be used for cooking more often. We have also a cooking stove in the kitchen.
The drawer under the old table, contains lots of old treasures and assorted knick knacks. This is how bandage looked in the old days. The leather cap seems perfect for my poor finger. It looked very used and inside it was a piece of bandage left so that was not an option for me.
Assorted buttons of different materials as glass, bone, mother of pearl, Bakelite and some rusty needles and a knife.
It wasn’t just the women that stayed here with the kettle, during the summer months in old times. Lots of tools for shaving is left here.
I think the Gillette box is fabulous with the purple velvet tucking.
Swedish steel shaving blade.
The ice on the lake is just about to melt. We took a nice walk along the beach to jump on the ice and fool around. This is the tiny beach just below our cottage.
Ice takes many forms.
The sandy beach is perfect for sand castles.
Fat lady on the beach. We argued if the paw prints in the sand (on the left side) came from a dog or a wolf. I said dog, but when I think of it I didn’t see any human footprints in the sand (and we're far from any house).
I tried Johans new gun. He wants’ me to take the course and license but I’m not very interested even if he says I have the talent.
Redneck “fika”. Vegan-sugarless-banana- bundt cake and melted chocolate served with a glass of Newcastle Brown ale. It was a nice combo (we forgot to bring the coffee). I imitated an owl howling in the woods and he answered me several times.
All in all we had a lovely weekend. Last night I slept for 12 hours with only a pee break at three o'clock enjoying the full moon light and those birds who sings at night.
