Blueberry Schlumpf

Blueberry Schlumpf

I didn’t get around to jotting down my Monday thoughts this week because very dear friends from the UK were here for the day with their eight year old twin girls. So instead we drove to Buxton’s General Store in the pickup truck to get…

It’s Easy Being Green in the Summertime

It’s Easy Being Green in the Summertime

Do you know chimichurri sauce? I didn’t, until we had owned the inn for a few years. Now I feel like I see it everywhere. (Isn’t that always the way?) My quick explanation to curious customers was, ‘it’s kind of like pesto only made with…

Mondays are for Wondering

Mondays are for Wondering

I am reader of things, you know this because the original idea of this Monday post was a random selection of things that caught my eye or my ear in the past week. That has not changed, it’s not likely to change anytime soon. But,…

My Dad has this great recipe that I’m going to share with you. It is a perfect summer soup. And really, really easy to make. Soup is a perfect lunch as far as I’m concerned but summer and soup and no air conditioning are not…

Is It Really Monday Again?

Is It Really Monday Again?

I am really not quite sure how a week went by without any other posts here. But, this is a new week! There will be new things! As for last week, our monster heatwave broke just in time for me to make all these party…

Monday Mush for Brains

Monday Mush for Brains

Well goodness gracious me. This heat has melted my brain cells and my motivation and pretty much most of my personality. So, I don’t have a lot to contribute to today. Last week was really busy, this week is thankfully not, but I’m having a…
