The new cottage

The new cottage

We have been going to my sister-in-lawโ€™s cottage for many years. It was a very modest little cabin. If everyone was *up* it was pretty cramped. Last year they tore down the cottage and decided to build a new one. This weekend we were invited up to see it. WOW. It is a night and day difference for sure! They went from a fairly primitive cabin to a beautiful modern house. No more composting toilet, no more showing outsideโ€ฆ the โ€˜newโ€™ cottage is a stunning modern house. It has multiple washrooms, fireplace, massive and fully functional kitchen and TONS of space. The exterior deck hasnโ€™t gone up yet but it will be started soon. When done, the cottage will certainly be a great location to host memories for many years!

Iโ€™ve been curious what the Harry Potter books were like so I started reading the series a few weeks ago. I finished the first book โ€“ Philosopherโ€™s Stone last night. I quite enjoy them. They are well written, interesting fantasy. Iโ€™m not surprised it turned into such a cultural icon.
