    Blogging idea: Featured Room

    That's a fantastic thought. This is one I really want to get to. The room with the witches' corner, the room that has been completely redone, the room with the ghost door (we'll see how that one goes), the whole top-of-the-house room ..... I have personal narrative I can give to each one that...

    UGH!! why do people think it's OK to show up at 5h early???

    The trouble is that they walk in anyway. Door is unlocked because there are existing guests ........ and signs are apparently only there for someone else to pay attention to. The best laid schemes of mice and men ...

    Tell them they met your evil twin. Had something similar last week. I am in my cleaning clothes. Not pretty. Don't care if I spill bleach. Shower will come later ..... etc. Guests show up 5 hours early .... same script as scribbles except it was me that that made the early contact and me...

    Coasters - are you strict?

    My tabletop is leather and shows everything. So I chastise - wag a finger - speak firmly - and ask them why they haven't read the 50 page rule book I left in their room. Basically I leave them laughing and in compliance.

    Non B&B Guests

    My guests make fun of me every day when I say "Half and half" in my British accent. I put the 1/2 and 1/2 into a cream jug and the milk into an old fashioned milk bottle. Usually it works just fine. My favourite is when they tell me they would rather have mugs than cups ...... and they're...

    Fried egg question

    I am in love with my new WOW egg dish. I serve it with savory dishes when I might have served fried or scrambled eggs. I don't have a pic yet (idiot) but it's solved a lot of problems. I found it in a children's cook book. Try it now with one single egg. You'll be done in 15 minutes...

    btw this job is making me fat

    Wow ...... I want to stay with you purely based on your breakfast (and yes - I went back and removed every "awesome" and exclamation mark). The closest I can get is making bialys for hubby on Father's Day.

    The challenge - exclamation mark maintenance

    Bathrobes

    One of the first things I did was get monogrammed bathrobes in all the rooms. I love love love them. Guests have an option to buy ..... and generally they will tell me that they don't want a new one, they've already packed it in their luggage. I have never ever had one stolen - but I have had...

    Why we don't buy local fruit

    Got home yesterday and one of my friends / neighbors had left me 4 gorgeous cucumbers on my back deck. I still don't know who, but everyone knows I use them constantly.

    Why we don't buy local fruit

    Walked to the end of our field and picked more than my guests could eat (and served them a dark chocolate salted caramel orange sauce that they could pour over if they wanted to ... they did)

    When You Hate The Review!

    Be Still My Beating Heart,

    It's a great question. They provide the biohazard bag (with a twist tie ???) and I would hope that they address onward disposal in the instruction brochure.

    Be Still My Beating Heart,

    Yes ...... she specifically mentioned the goggles, mask, disposable apron and something to immediately solidify "liquid". She even said that cat litter works perfectly for on the spot containment. Thanks for finding this. I'm going to order a few so I have them here. I must admit - it's not...

    Be Still My Beating Heart,

    Did I have the what ???? Yes ..... things are ALWAYS changing. It's really difficult to try and keep up. I told her that I HATE HATE HATE (with a passion) doing the kitchen, so I just suck it up and do what I'm supposed to while muttering nasty things under my breath the whole time. That...

    Be Still My Beating Heart,

    I don't know what a CFPM is. Apparently I don't need to be one based on how many rooms I have but APPARENTLY based on my kitchen standards I am one anyway. I'm kind of flabbergasted, She saw the kitchen at its absolute worst. I was so embarrassed, but the surfaces came up clean, the fridge...
