I Am So Spoiled


How can a person get so lucky?  What homemaker doesn't like an excuse to beautify their home and surroundings? Well, I won't go so far as to say I'm getting paid to do just that but it gets pretty close.  Throw in the opportunity to splurge on yummy dishes that aren't generally on the budget and it sounds like the good life, right?

Now some of us like to live on a quiet acreage but how do you earn money sitting at home? The way I do! The fun way! Sure I mentioned the food and the opportunity to pretty up the place but that isn't even the main thing, not nearly.  The best part is getting to know such wonderful, interesting people from all walks of life and far-flung places.
You probably guessed by now I am talking about our bed and breakfast. It's my dream job and I'm looking forward to meeting you next. Maybe you want to share your wonderful story with us.

Everyone welcome!

Prettying Up Hollyhock Haven

Hollyhock Haven Bed and Breakfast

Gotta rush but I'm getting more and more enthused about this Bed and Breakfast idea. If you have been reading my posts lately, you'll see I have had a more or less one track mind. And that's to perk up and pretty up our B&B. I even came up with a new tag line. “A stranger is the friend we haven't met.”Still working on painting the utility and entrance but other things kept crowding in. One friend I have never met saw the pictures on the website and had a lovely comment. She said “When you're done, you'll have a very, very pretty Bed and Breakfast, Marilyn.” Well,I got to going. See you soon? I hope so!

I have a 'wonderful gutt” as the Amish would say, recipe for Granola which would be super popular with our guests. Should I pick up more ingredients today? P.S. Just wait til you taste Country Scrambled Eggs and our Smoothies...
Well, I really must run. I want to pick up some turquoise paint for the utility among other things........That's my feet running out the door! (I know, I know, it should be two tracks!)
Oh I forgot to mention something that's really gonna put our little back-country town on the map. A few years ago I pestered a friend of mine to sell her donuts, and the last couple years she has been doing so. If they become world famous I wouldn't be surprized. I was told they did ten batches a day with nine and a half dozen donuts in each batch and they ALWAYS run out.

I'm Dreaming About...You!

I can’t seem to fall asleep, tonight but I’m dreaming anyway, and those dreams are putting a smile on my face and joy in my heart. I’m picturing Hollyhock Haven as it will be once the word gets out. Hollyhock Haven is the name of our Bed and Breakfast and you can see the picture of the house above. In my mind’s eye, I see a couple with two or three small children walk in the front door, look around and whisper: ‘Home Sweet Home’. That’s the feeling I want people to get when they walk into our ‘haven’. We want them to especially get that feeling if they have never known the security and tranquility of a truly God-centered home
