We bought a cabin...
After three years of looking for some sort of weekend place, three years in which we checked out beach cottages in Tiny and Sauble, a couple of log cabins, searched for a stone farmhouse and then a classic a-frame before losing out on a cute place close to Thornbury, we found our place and we get the keys this afternoon.
We were pretty sad after the Thornbury deal fell through, but it really solidified what we were looking for: a cabin and some land. A place to chop and stack wood, wash dishes by hand, sit around roaring fires, notice the seasons changing, live outside as much as possible. A place to gather. To slow down. Look at stars. I feel all of this in a soft, hushed way. I can't wait to just...uncurl.

I'd like to paint the cedar siding, add some (deer-proof!) planting around the deck to disguise the deck footings, But nothing more than that. I am thinking about wool blankets and lanterns and jigsaw puzzles, a vintage steel Coleman cooler filled with drinks on the deck in summer and nights around a fire. Here's a peek at the mudroom:
