We have now been open 50 days. That’s hard to believe, but, we are having fun hosting guests! Now, if I can just get Jack to listen for the dryer and fold those towels and tuck the sheets in at the foot of the bed, we are good! Doing business with your spouse is sometimes not advised. But we are doing fine. We are even getting along in the kitchen for the most part.
I have sorta of missed blogging, but we have been really busy not just with guests but this winter in staying warm! Jack has built many fires and we are continuing to work toward our Permanent Certificate of Occupancy. Since it has been so cold, we got a 30-day extension on those porch railings. We have the main deck complete except for the top caps. And, Jack has the posts put up for the star-gazing deck
When it is cold outside, I am busy at my computer planning class lectures and Jack works inside. Here are a few things he has done:
Laundry room shelves (a cubby for each room’s sheets and towels) with a folding table that will fold up against the wall.
He finished the window seats for the two large windows.
And I have made one of two cushions for the seats. Did you know that foam is about $30 per yard?! Outrageous!
The trim carpenter finally came back and trimmed out my stained glass so it looks must more finished.
I have stained every 6-panel door in the house except those that Sherry and Carolyn helped me with. I determined there about over 60 sides to stain. Plus all of the trim.
Cooking wise, our signature item is becoming the pecan encrusted bacon. Jack’s biscuits are very popular as well as the Kahlua Caramel French Toast. We have other dishes we are still testing.
We are already booking reservations into June and July so let us know when you are in the area and can spend some time at Bedford Landings! Ya’ll come!
