My getaway cabin (also known as my playhouse)

Here's what my getaway cabin looks like today.  Cliff is getting lots of help from the neighborhood boys... I think they're planning on getting to use it sometimes, and of course, I'll let them.

A friend said she'd be afraid to stay in my cabin in the woods alone.  Well, there's less to fear on the back of my place than there is up here at the house, and I never lock my doors here; I'll be OK.  The whole purpose of this thing is to take the heat off Cliff.  I love to camp out; he doesn't.  Once my cabin is in place, if I take a wild hair to camp, all I have to do is pack my grip and walk about a quarter mile.  I love it.

Cliff and I had a nice day.  We got some guys to come out and fix our brick foundation where the cement between the bricks had deteriorated.  And, they're removing most of the useless chimney where our roof leaks so badly, and sealing it off.  There went the $600 I was saving for vacations.  I hope Cliff is right, and that this will fix our leaky-roof problems.

We had a great lunch of tuna-noodle casserole, and the left-over candied sweet potatoes from Sunday dinner.

Tomorrow and the next day, I'll work.  I'm rather looking forward to it, since I have a juicy piece of gossip for some of my friends there.  (I know, Christians aren't supposed to gossip.  This particular piece of gossip won't hurt anyone though; besides, I'm a fallable human.)
