There’s just something about a log cabin.
Today we celebrate LOG CABIN DAY!!! I’m sure that does not have anything to do with syrup, either. If you to have a cabin somewhere to escape to, then you really know what it means to get away and relax!
We do not have a cabin, but we are blessed to have good friends who invite us to join them at their cabin once in a while. There’s just something about being in the woods, away from the city, that gives way to lower blood pressure, reduced stress – and lower blood sugar levels!
I think it’s almost as fun to go to the little grocery store to get grub – the little “mom and pop” place on the highway, just before you turn onto the winding road that leads to the cabin. We always have our list ready to go – staples like bread, milk, eggs, bacon (gotta have the bacon – well, turkey bacon), vegetables for the week, a package of cheese and a 5lb. bag of potatoes. We bring our own kitchen towels, utensils, pots, pans, glasses and silverware from home. If we decide we want to get fancy, we pack a tablecloth and some placemats. None of us are awfully keen on getting fancy. I think we’ve only packed table linens a couple of times.
Our friends always make us feel at home in their beautiful cabin, decorated in rustic outdoor cabin style. It has a lot of bears, fish and deer type décor, but still maintains the feel of a luxury home. It has a very large living area with a big screen TV. As you go up the stairs to the loft, you peek around the corner into the ample sized open kitchen, complete with a sweet little breakfast nook (built for two) in the corner. When you turn to go down the short hallway, you see a bath and two good size kid’s bedrooms. There’s a master bedroom on the ground floor, which we were always given. The first time I saw it I thought to myself, “This is a cabin? Some people’s homes are not this nice!”
There’s a nice wrap-around porch where we solve all the world’s problems. What a great place to make plans and dream dreams for the future. Sometimes we go down to the lake to fish, but I prefer to just stay in the rocking chair and talk the day away with my friends.
Here’s your history lesson about a log cabin song.
