Home Rules

Peter and I have spent the last three days opening the cottage....mowing, mulching, planting, sweeping, dusting and much more. It's a lot of work, but I love this time of the year with the promise of a whole summer before us with visits from family and friends. There are times when the parade of visitors can be overwhelming and one meal runs into the next, so when I saw the above "Home Rules" in a friend's cottage, I asked her to make a copy for me...and my brother suggested I post it on my blog. So here it is, Lil Bro and I know you asked for an exemption to the rules, but....

  1. I have always loved these rules. I add my own which came from a cartoon strip long ago: Mom's Cafe—you have two hands, make it yourself. Happy summer.

  2. home before dark ~ I shall have to frame the eleventh rule and give it a place of honor! A very happy summer to you!

    Rachel ~ Thank you!
