Around the Bend

April 5, 2018 - While much of the conversation around here lately is about the weather (which isn't very positive), I have tried to focus on what's around the bend. I'm pretty confident we will have spring soon and then summer. We'll forget how we had extra time on our hands and weren't driven by what needed to be done that day. 
     So, this is the time of year we plan,  paint, start seeds, organize, and learn. Earlier this winter I attended a fabulous class - Go Biz Grow, about starting and growing businesses. It was a life changer!
     On a recent trip to Arizona my friend taught me how to track expenses and have better control of finances on Excel. Another life changer. As my husband tells me "It's time to get rid of the wringer washer." We always remember how reluctant my mom was to advance with an improved appliance. Now if he can just learn to set a table.
     Along with the planning, I took advantage of some super shopping yesterday. We'll be freshening things up with new dishes and bedding. 
I can't believe we're starting our eighth year as a bed & breakfast already! 
     This week we had a lovely group of ladies from the Wooster area. Each one of them had been here before at different times with their husbands. This time the purpose was a birthday and to celebrate their friendships. We are so honored they chose to come here. I know we will see them again. It's guests like them that make us want to be a better B&B! 
     We still have those farm-fresh eggs to enjoy with our guests. Yesterday I was proud to serve a beautiful Cheddar Cheese Quiche for breakfast.  Just by replacing a portion of the half & half with 2% milk and using Crisco Baking Sticks instead of regular Crisco I trimmed loads of extra fat calories. 
     Along with those fresh eggs we always serve some kind of fresh fruit. One of my favorite combinations is fresh pineapple with mango and banana. Pretty easy to find nice selections all winter long. I'm still on the search to pluck up some fresh mint for garnish. Perhaps in another week. 
     Off to go see if that last piece of quiche is still in the frig......
