It has been a long time since I wrote a blog post here, this summer has been so hectic here. We have had lots of guests staying in Elk Grove Cottage and have been kept very busy. Also there is some other news that I haven't yet mentioned, though some of you already know and might have seen the changes on the about us page. Andreas moved here as of January 2017 and as of June 2017 Graham no longer lives here, he decided to return to the UK. With all the changes taking place it has meant we needed time to settle back into some kind of routine. We decided to not have any volunteers stay here this summer, however Andreas and myself have been doing all kinds around the place.
A trip to Lake Värnen is only 10 minutes from here, so I took a few photos when we went there one summer evening.
Andreas has been doing some painting, he painted the outside of Elk Grove Cottage and some of the barn, he also painted some of the front of the house, he intends to do it all eventually. He also painted the decking outside the cottage. And also painted our front door purple and the bell silver, I made a star for the door and sprayed it silver and I also made a sign so people know to ring the bell at the door, some people thought that because it says "reception" that they can just walk in.
Today we went on a mushroom hunting trip, you can see all the photos of the mushrooms we found below. But before those here are some photos of a magical loo in the forest, just out there in the middle of no where, with an elf picture inside.
And here are the mushrooms.
That is all for now.
