If THIS isn't right up my alley, I don't know what is....

It is here that we will be celebrating our 25th.

Here is the link, just in case anyone will be in Southern Oregon anytime soon and wants GREAT food and very sweet lodging. 

The four generations that work this inn, are the nicest people you will ever meet.
SO accommodating. SO friendly. SO down-to-earth.

It's up the road about 20 miles, but worth the drive. 

I CAN'T wait until our party in July. I'll post after photos of all the things I have up my sleeve.

My friend, Ginger, my maid of honor back in 1985, and I drove up there today and had lunch.

She totally summed it up, as we were sitting at a table by the window, taking in the historic surroundings.

"Most places like these are museums."

Yep, but not this one. 


we get to throw a party, 

go right to our room after, 

and have a full breakfast the next morning. 

Doesn't get better than that!!!

My Golly, Molly...MOLD?

Has it really been that long since I blogged?

How can that be?

I've been really busy, to say the least. MIA from blogland.

Busy putting together our 25th Anniversary party. Man, there are a lot of details to attend to.

Busy at work. Being a side-kick and support person to my husband and the crew.

Busy at home. The usual housework and feeding of the gang...and let's not forget the contractor working there.

Busy at the new building. Coordinating. Paperwork. Phone calls....

Soon - maybe towards the end of Summer, it'll all be coming to a close and then I'll be complaining how bored I am ...with NOTHING to do....

Highly unlikely, since there's ALWAYS something to be done, but maybe I'll get to spend some time with friends and family. Yeah, it might be nice to spend Thanksgiving with everyone...well EXCEPT Kyle. He'll be busy with Army Boot Camp in South Carolina. I still can't believe that. Someone pinch me.


The stone patio, stone entryway and our front porch should be done in a couple of weeks. We should be able to make the business move to Medford by the end of Summer
(by the end of July - if all goes well - we'll see).

Demo is done. Permits are in place. Let the construction begin...

It's an older building. Lots of age. Some good. Some not-so-good.
The kitchen/break room had a lot of water damage. Someone repaired the studs and drywall, but didn't repair the leak. How lame is that? Reminds me of one of those home improvement shows.

The back of the drywall had UGLY mold growing. 

But....in order to make lemonade from lemons, before it all got removed, I took a few pictures. Even though the MOLD is GROSS, the formation was REALLY cool looking and would make really fun backgrounds for mixed media art.

I just love the patterns. 

The colors.
The organic nature of the growth.  Looks like a starry night.
Admit it. 
If these were winter landscapes painted on silk, you'd LOVE them too!!

Now, I'm off to run errands for work.

Gone, but Not Forgotten....


I am not MIA. Well, maybe I am. I haven't blogged in almost a month. Been busy. REALLY, REALLY BUSY!!!

So, Hello to all my friends. I haven't forgotten you. Just need to take something off my to-do list, and unfortunately, it's been blogging and treasure hunting......
