My first attempts at blogging…so ready or not, here I come. Thats what I have to tell myself in order to get the momentum going. So Hello World, Here I Come!
Today is also the first day of my cleanse. Normally I would wait until after the New Year, but I need to get a head start before the holidays. Since moving to Carlton, Oregon in mid-July, and becoming an Innkeeper, I’ve noticed a bit more snugness in my jeans…I equate this to practicing new recipes, and sampling them all, and regular leftovers from those scrumptous breakfasts…sigh…delicious desserts, and wonderful wine tastings offered by Oregon’s Wine Country in the Willamette Valley. I’ve also been working my way through a number of local eateries, from Carlton (of course) to Newberg, Dundee, and McMinnville. I’m not even half-way through them yet.
Since moving to Carlton and purchasing The Carlton Inn B&B, I’ve visited a number of the local wineries (no hard chore), taken a wine tasting class, experienced my first Walk in the Park, Artist’s Tour, where I collected a few new art pieces for the Inn, and of course numerous visits to the Farmer’s Markets in McMinnville. There are many more events that I’m looking forward to participating in…I’ll keep you posted.
Improvements to The Carlton Inn B&B are ongoing. New dual-paned windows have been installed throughout all the guestrooms, bathrooms, and living room areas. What a difference this has made to insulating from outside noise and temperature control, as well as having screens on all the windows, so fresh air is plentiful if that is your preference.
There have been some stylish updates to each of the guest rooms, including new silky soft sheets (available for purchase to), allergy protective covers for the pillows, some light fixtures/chandeliers, furnishings, and artwork. New pictures of each of the guest rooms has been included in the room/rates page. So what you see is what you get!
