I miss my log cabin

I miss my log cabin. Had the flu not knocked me off my feet, I would be there now with the hubby, stepson and Marvin the cat. I am anxious to put one of my Christmas presents in there (an electric fireplace from my dad!) So I'm laying in bed, daydreaming until I am back there again.

















I miss my black squirrel despite him getting into the bird's food all the time. Check out the snow on his face!

















I miss the chickadee's curiosity.















I miss the barking call of the red-bellied woodpecker. They always announce their arrival.


















I miss snow shoeing through the woods.











And I miss the views of the snow covered lake.

Hope you are feeling better! I can see why you love your log cabin so much.

Janette said...

Shelley,

I really hope you feel better soon. You really have me rethinking the whole flu shot thing. I was always told not to get it. Anyway, I love your blog, your pictures are so beautiful and the log cabin reminds me of mine that was taken so wrongfully from my family by our mortgage co.
I can't wait to rebuild one. In about 2 more years! We were just looking at Kuhn's Brothers website the other day. Take Care

Love that photo of the cabin. I can imagine how much you miss being there. It will seem even that much better when you can get back. Get well...and soon....

Molly's Mellow Moments said...

Oooooh! - Black squirrels...chickadees...woodpeckers! Be still my beating heart!! - Will have to 'make do' with flocks of very greedy seagulls around here! ..and an elderly (gorgeous, I might add..) Cavalier King Charles!!
Sweet day dreaming...and get better soon, you'll soon be 'dreaming' of the time you spent resting!! - Soooo frustrating I know..
All best

Judy said...

Feel better soon Shelly. Your cabin is awaiting her mistress.

Firefly Nights said...

I noticed your beautiful cabin when I glanced at other comments when I was posting a note on Charli and Me. We live in Virginia but frequently drive through Gaylord on the way to our properties on the U. P. We have a cabin (not log) in the Hiawatha National Forest and a small place on Lake Superior in the town where Hiwatha Log Homes has their headquarters. We've been to the factory once or twice.

I hope to be back soon to read more about your cabin and to take a closer look at the lovely photos on your other blog.

Shellmo said...

Michelle - thank you and happy new year!

Charli - thanks! Hoping I can make it up next week and shoot some new photos!

Grammy - you are certainly right about the rest part! Today I conked out early!

Rondell - my black squirrels are fun to watch & have become quite tame!

Connie - I am dreaming of the hot chocolate.... :-)

Pam - lol!!

Leedra - you know me well - it was my best gift!

Catherine- thank you - the hubby says I've got color back in my cheeks! :)

Betsy - good advice - appreciated! So hard to stay still!!

Dawn - I am dreaming about it everyday...

Janette - I hope everything works out for you! I know what its like to long for a log home!!

George - thanks! Counting down...

Jylync - I don't know what hurts worse - my stomach cuz of the flu or my heart cuz I'm not at the cabin!

Dawnie - you're right! I do like watching their naughtiness!

Darla - thank you so much!

Monica - thanks for the hycianths (i still don't know how to spell it - lol!)

Molly - my sentiments exactly! :-)

Judy - thank you! Hoping there are some fluffy snow flakes up there for me too - just a little though.

Kim~HomeIsWhereTheHeartIs said...

Sure hope you get to feeling better...wishing you all the best in 2009!

Jen said...

Oh boo hoo!! So sorry to hear that. We were just talking about the flu, although we did not get shots this year. The last time I had it was the winter after we moved in to our house, 10 years ago. Must be a log cabin thing.
Hope you are up north again real soon. Take care.

Judy said...

I have been way too busy the last few days, which prevented me from visiting some of my favorite blogs. I am sorry that you have been so sick. When I saw your post today, I could totally understand why you would miss all of the different aspects of your cabin...I would have too. What a place!! I am always showing my husband the pictures that you post. Log cabins will always be in his dreams. Hope you are soon feeling better. Thank you for your kind comments regarding the wedding.

Tami said...

That Black Squirrel is ADORABLE! I hope your home and tucked into your own bed soon!

Natural Moments said...

You've got me missing it through your narrative and your photos, and I've never even been there :) Your black squirrel looks great. It must be a lot of fun to watch it meander. I am glad you are feeling better in time for the New Year.

Denise said...

Oh shucks, I feel bad for you now. Do you have a pic of that fireplace? We are wanting one for our bedroom at the cabin and one for our sunroom, here downstate.
