The tyranny of time

It's been wet most of this summer, with little time for work on the hut. The list of unfinished things begins to sound like Lady Murasaki's list of unpleasant things:

sauna not built
porch at front not built
back porch not built
sections of the brick path not relaid
window sill not replaced
old ceiling still in place
unfinished kitchen panels
floor boards by new hearth not in place.

On the other hand, it's been a fine year for mushrooms, with jars full of dried ceps, six litres of chanterelle vodka and two large jars of pickled mixed mushrooms.

First day of autumn today and a lot of wood to be sawn and stacked before winter. My list might get longer before next summer.
