Scrunched

The cottage, Riverwood, sits on a large piece of mostly forested land — about 120 acres. In addition to this expansive Riverwood outdoors, the actual cottage contains a fairly large kitchen and a decent sized living room, but we have a certain predilection to gather in the porch. So, here's the family: five adults and two dogs in a small space with AC and Zeus just barely outside the door (possibly contemplating their next duet). It seems to be ever thus — that we scrunch ourselves into this tiny space.


That's Cuppa's brother, top left, and his wife, top right. Her sister is in the middle right beside her husband's knees. My family? Heck I'm an only child.

Nice to meet some family, AC. Hasn't the weather been fab?!

I can't read a word of the text, but the photo is lovely! Very odd, but yours and Cuppa's are the only pages I can't read... I wonder what's in the formatting that my PC doesn't like??

I like this cozy picture. Just looks like a wonderful afternoon. There is nothing like a porch in the summertime.

PBS said...

Yes, but you all look so comfortable!

To me this looks wonderful... surrounded by family in a cozy cottage setting. A pefect way to spend part of the summer. Lucky Cuppa to have so many siblings. Lucky you.. now they are yours too. :-)

How lucky you all are to have each other and to like each other enough to enjoy time all squished in like that.

Looks like lots of FUN!

That is what I call cozy. Our cottage has 750 sq. ft. but this looks a bit smaller. Sounds like a wonderful holiday.

As you like to be close, for your next outing I could suggest a nice phone box. At least you could call for pizzas, heehee!
Keep smiling.

That room does look like a very cozy space. I have been wondering exactly which part Zeus sings in the duet. Most times I just sing also. ec
