Closing Cottage For Winter

 IMG_3060

Mom & dad are getting ready to close the cottage for winter and as you can see, we do not have any  Royal Teak Furniture | Home and Patio Decor  for our outdoor furniture, we have to bring everything into the cottage for the winter.  So last week, we cleaned up the outdoor furniture , wipe them down from the summer use and all the dirt and grass as well as bugs that got stuck onto them and brought them all into the cottage for storage.

Mom had wanted to invest in teak furniture as they are supposed to be good for all kind of weather and you don’t have to worry about rain or the sun ray that might damage the outdoor furniture.  Mom said teak furniture are very expensive but you pay for what you get because teak furniture are made from the best kind of wood and they last up to 70 years.  When mom was a teenager, she said that only the very rich people can afford teak furniture and they have it at their pool as lounge furniture for suntanning and benches for picnics.  But now, one can get them as dining set and even Adirondacks like the ones we have above but made of teak wood.   The ones that we bought were handmade as well and they are made out of cedar wood but mom said she didn’t think that cedar wood are as good as teak.  Cedar wood is not rot resistant mom said but one can use water repellent like we did with ours but teak wood is much better.

So for next year, mom is going to invest in some Royal Teak Furniture, and mom said  the cottage will be mine when I grow up, I can always use them and so will mom’s grandchildren and great grandchildren.  I think this will be money wisely spent, like mom has taught me all my life.

Working For Dad In the Summer

1

I’m trying to find a purpose in life this summer because I am not going to any camp like I used to.  So daddy set me to work at the store and I get to earn $5 an hour for work done at the store.  So here I am tagging the movies with new prices and that was easy because I love doing it.

At the end of the day, I made like $15 but I will only get paid on Friday.

Of course, I did more than that , I cleaned the store, I dust the store, I cleaned all the glass cabinets and refilled the pop.

And I put away movies and games that are to be sold into little sleeves.

And also arranged the movies by alphabetical order.  I wasn’t really tired at the end of the day but that made me appreciate what mom and dad does in the store.  But mostly dad because dad does a lot more in the store.

Fun At The Beach

Beach day !  And since we have our own private beach just behind our cottage, we have to make use of it even though it was pretty cold after the sun went behind the clouds.   My “cousin” Jessica was with me and we had such a blast.

Look ! there is only 2 of us in the entire beach !

An empty beach ! woohoo!

Jessica covered with sand and I was the mastermind.  Love Jessica , she is so fun to be with.

Shopping For Guitar Strings

 We were up in the city to get daddy some  black nylon guitar strings  .  We can’t find any around town and usually daddy orders his online but since we were out shopping in the city and daddy had nothing to do , he went to see if he can find something similar for his guitar and music room.

Finding guitar strings are pretty easy if you order them online because the place that daddy orders them, they have just about everything and anything related to music.   But sometimes, when mummy is shopping and daddy has got nothing to do , he will go window shop for the prices and do comparison.

My Very Own Backpack For Vacation

Our summer vacation is just round the corner, we are going to Toronto for 10 days and then Disney World after.  Mom said that these  personalized kids backpacks  will be good for me since I need to have at least one carry on to put my bears and knick knacks that I might need for my few hours of flight on the plane.  Mom is going to put my name on one of the biggest one, that way , I won’t lose my carry on back and if I do lose it, I can easily identify it too.  I’m so looking forward to my vacation and also carrying my new personalized backpacks.

Sick At The Beginning Of Summer

016

It’s only the beginning of the summer holiday and I’m already sick !  and been sick for a week now , with diarrhea !  no fever or anything but diarrhea and tummy cramps !  I do not like it and I hope it won’t mess up my trips to Toronto and Disney World this year.  This is such a bummer ! to start of the summer this way.

A Fun Day At Upper Clements Park

004

We left the house at about 10.20am and picked up Jessica for a day at Upper Clements.  Mom and dad took the day off and Jeff helped us looked after the store.   Mom and dad wanted me to have some fun at Upper Clements before going back to school.  I went on so many rides this year, mummy and daddy were really impressed.

My first time trying out the antique car and I liked it even though I had a hard time maneuvering it.

I loved the pedal go kart !

023

We loved the merry go round rides too.

My First Recital

 I had my first recital a few weeks ago at Beacon church on a very beautiful piano  and it sounded so good, mama was really impressed with it.  Mama said that she is going to buy a better piano for me this summer, so I’m looking forward to going shopping with her and my daddy and get a piano.

Mummy said that she wants to get something that is good but not too, too expensive for me because she is afraid that I might not continue with my piano many years from now.  But she really hopes that I will because it is such a beautiful instrument to learn as both my mummy and daddy plays a few songs too.
