Crochet Lessons? 28 Oct 2013, 5:59 pm
I just realized it has been quite a while since I last posted in the blog. It has been a busy Summer and I’m taking just a little while off to rest and re energize myself.
I wanted to bring you up to date that I’m now doing any frying for your breakfast in OLIVE OIL! Yes, even though breakfasts tend to be heavy in oils and carbs, I will try to keep them as healthy as I can for you.
As well, I am now serving farm fresh, free range eggs since Summer.
I hope to offer crochet lessons for my guests. Something simple and quick that can be completed during your stay here. A little hat? Coffee Cozy? Face Cloth? Let me know and I will practice until I feel confident teaching you how to do it.
We hope to see you soon!

Farm Fresh Eggs! 25 May 2013, 12:19 pm
I am so excited! I just now learned of a source for free range farm fresh eggs! I hope to be able to serve them in the next week or two!
Cliff Swallows! 13 May 2013, 7:16 am
Just glancing out the window, I noticed the cliff swallows are back! They come for about a month in the Spring and then again for about a week or so in the Fall. They build nests in the bluff (hillside) in back of our house and swoop through the air in the morning and evening, catching their meals in mid-flight. They are a delight to watch and I hope you get a chance to enjoy them soon!
Welcome Spring! 13 May 2013, 6:25 am
At last the warmer weather of Spring has arrived, at least for now, and with it come our guests. We had a full house for Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway shareholder meeting with guests coming from Utah and Colorado. Earlier in the week, we had been graced with guests from England.
One exciting event we recently learned about is the tryouts for American Idol that are coming to Omaha on August 11th! We had an American Idol contestant stay with us about 5 years ago We enjoyed hearing her practice her operatic singing. Unfortunately she did not get past the tryouts, but it was fun, trying.
