Happy Valentine's Day

Hi everyone. Things are getting back to normal around here. Bill is back from Florida and I am recovering from my surgery. And we are getting ready for a whole new season here at the Inn.

As Bill mentioned in his last post, we had a little down time in January and part of February but the coming spring is shaping up to be a very successful season for us. And do we have lots planned for our guests in the upcoming year.

We are getting very excited that our baby chicks will be delivered on March 7th. Bill and I are going to be new dads. And as with human children, raising chickens is a lot of work. But all the hard work will certainly pay off. Our guests will have fresh eggs in the morning and we may even ask them if they would like to pick their own. We will have 3 different kinds of eggs. Even though the tastes are not different, their appearance sure is. There will be white eggs, brown eggs and even blue eggs. And there is nothing like fresh eggs in the morning.

Bill and I also learned a lot from having our first ever veggie garden last year. The biggest lesson we learned is NOT to plant so much zucchini. OMG. We had zucchini coming out of our ears last year. I don't think one of our neighbors didn't get a zucchini bread or two from us. And they still kept coming. I think we are going to concentrate on peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, and beans this year. Oh and maybe a FEW zucchini.

We also talked about different events we would like to have at the Inn this year. We are planning a tea or two and possibly offering some of our homemade baked goods for sale as well as dozens of fresh eggs. Another possibility is offering painter's weekends, where we will supply the guests with paint supplies and have an artist from the hudson valley come and give a lesson.

We will also offer up packed picnic lunches for guests going out on biking or hiking excursions for the day. But these are just a few of the ideas we have for the upcoming season.

Well, its nice to be back and we hope that you continue to read our blog and find out whats going on at the Inn.

Have a wonderful, romantic, Valentine's Day and Bill and I hope all your lovely wishes come true.

See you soon.
