Monday - The work week begins

Mondays have never been my favorite. From the old work week of Monday through Friday, I would say Monday is the least favorite. Starting a whole new week and it being 5 days from another two days off. This coming weekend is the 4th of July holiday weekend. Parades - of course we only have one float in our parade this year. Yes this is Mayberry all over again. We'll have the traditional firetrucks, emergency equipment, a few people on bikes, etc., but only one float. One thing about living in a small town, things are limited in some areas of the community. But I definitely won't go without the traditional BBQ. Friends of ours in California would always get together with a BBQ, fireworks and alot of talking. We could talk for hours about anything and not run out of things to say. We would start planning a couple weeks early, sketch a menu and call everyone to see what they wanted to bring. The food was fantastic - I guess were were foodies and at the time didn't realize it. But it was always a great get together. I looked forward to all the holidays with our friends. Even though we are in NH now, we still help plan their menu. It makes us, in some way still feel apart of the festivities.

Happy Fourth of July everyone!

Friday is the best day of the week

I don't care what anyone says, I really love Fridays. Mainly because I'm used to the old work week Monday through Friday scenario. Of course that's not our schedule now. Having a B&B changes your schedule from week to week. Sometimes you work 4 days, sometimes it's 7 days. But in my mind Friday still gets my attention. These blogs can really get you rambling.

Middle of the week

Today was a little wet off and on, but this evening is gorgeous. Sitting out on the front porch, the cloud hanging low over the mountains. What a beautiful sight at sundown.

Stopped by to visit with Les today and set up our charity event for the North Conway Area Humane Society. Runs through the summer and we've already hidden the geocache boxes in the valley. A few more things to organize, but then we'll set it up on the web site.

Looking forward to a nice weekend and maybe going to the Bridge Dance in Jackson. It's great to live in a small town, it reminds me of Mayberry.

The season begins!

The Mount Washington Valley comes alive this weekend as things open for the summer travelers. From kayaking to horseback riding, the excitement is just beginning. The waterfalls are flowing as snow from the mountains continue to melt.

We're sprucing up the grounds, preparing the pool and cleaning the BBQ for our guests to enjoy this summer. So lace up your boots and come and take a hike with us, through the majestic White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Sunday Morning on the Porch

It's Sunday morning and we're enjoying a cup of coffee with guests on the front porch, our window to the world. The Chipmunks are active and the Robins are plentiful. If I could just get those chipmunks trained to sweep the driveway, life would be good.

First Time Blogger

My first blog, boy has technology gone far beyond what I would have ever imagined.

It's a beautiful day in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, The temp is 71 degrees and our guests are enjoying all that the area has to offer.
Our friendly neighborhood bear (Benny) was by for an afternoon nap in the Inns oldest maple tree. This name was given to him when we first met in the spring of 2005. He was a young bear at that time that must have just left his mother. Though a small crowd gathered and took photo ops, it didn't seem to bother his resting.
