A tad bit late…
I know already–I’m a couple of days late. To be honest, there’s not a lot of interesting stuff going on until the people arrive THIS WEEKEND! Yes, Folks, that’s right–we’re counting down the days ’til opener.
I went to Ear Falls today. I saw a cow and yearling calf on my way up and a big, old cow on my way back. Those were our official first moose sightings of the season. We let them out of the pen a few at a time so they can spread out before the tourists arrive;)
Steve and Kevin have been busy, busy, busy. Looked like Cabin 6 was getting a new hot water heater today. The Eagle’s Nest is in the midst of getting an upstairs shower. Tubs and showers have been re-caulked. The digger guy comes Friday to help finalize the laundry facility. Here’s what I know ’bout that so far: the washer and dryer have arrived and are mostly installed; each will take $2.75 Canadian (two loonies and three Canadian quarters); we will provide the detergent ’cause we want it to be septic friendly. This project has been A LOT of work for ole Gruper!
I’ve still been washing and hanging curtains, organizing, etc. I had been cooking and baking up a storm for my new audience (Kevin); however, he has requested that he be removed from the breakfast plan as he feels the need to nap after he eats so much:( I’ve never had someone quit breakfast before! Apparently I was trying too hard to dazzle him (imagine that).
Kevin’s plane is parked down by the Eagle’s Nest. It had a nice reflection the other morning:
That’s the only photo I took this week!
Now that sucks (a shout out to John and Marie)!
Thank goodness Jack and Marion are on the stick! They sent along a couple of photos this week. Also, I’ve begged and pleaded for a poem of Marion’s to share–the pressure’s on!
