Today was busy involving lots of people. I took my car in to Shaw's
Service station in Sperryville for service. I left it there and walked
through Sperryville to the Caregiver's meeting. I really enjoyed the walk
and saw things one would never see even when driving 25 mph through the village.
The Theatre at Little Washington.
Wendy Weinburg owns a lovely theatre in Little Washington, The Theatre at
. We can thank her for bring the Smithsonian to Rappahannock County as well as many other shows. Last weekend was a jazz group..
Another lunch buddy today is Susan Dienelt who throws the most beautiful pots and plates imaginable, not to mention her incredible scones (see recipe in last year's July 28th blog
). Another lunch buddy today was Joan Vernikos who was the medical wellness doctor with NASA for many years. She now spends a good deal of time traveling to discuss her books on health. I've mentioned them before in other blogs. Sharon Kilpatrick is the mainstay with our lunch bunch and she spends a good deal of time preparing to sell her house before moving to Denver.
I had a new worker mucking the paddock and grounds yesterday. In five hours he produced only five wheelbarrow loads. Clearly mucking was new to him and required careful examination of the rake with each deposit into the wheelbarrow. There must be other jobs he enjoys doing more.
Tomorrow I'll be giving the final approval of new Conyers House postcards. I think there is one on our Face Book page
That's enough for today . . .
Shelly and I will put up a Christmas tree on the saddle porch tomorrow. The guests this past weekend came from PA to fox hunt but arrived with such flu/cold that it didn't happen. Next time. They are from Rolling Rock Hunt
in Legonier. Tomorrow will be lovely warm weather and I'll be taking a couple riding from The Inn at Little Washington. So glad it will be in the 50s. Tomorrow I'll be working with designing new postcards.
I went away for a few days to New Orleans after Thanksgiving. I chose that time to have my ears pierced again. What a trip that was. My daughter, Betsy, and I went to a tattoo parlor. How much fun was that!! I assure you, the other patrons and workers there had never seen the likes of me before---I have seen pierced and tattooed kids in public before. The chap who did a very professional job was named Face. He wasn't too over tattooed. I'm still wearing little faux diamonds until they have been in for two weeks, then I can switch them.
Meanwhile at The Conyers House, Alex the greeter Jack Russell, was staying with our longtime housekeeper, Shelly. She brought him home each day to give him a few hours to romp around. He took advantage of permission to sleep on the bed with Shelly's daughter Hannah.
Alex fishing off the front porch.
Here he asks permission to do the same, but knows it won't work. I love having his company, but not on my bed which is full of papers, mail, my laptop etc.
That's all for today...
