This account has existed quite a while. I wasn’t sure what to do with it, but my grandson, Todd, suggested that I get with the times and have a blog. I’m not sure what that is but it didn’t cost me anything and Todd, being a good and knowledgeable kid set everything up.
I told Marion about this whole thing and she thinks it’s wonderful. She said it will be a good hobby for me. I am not sure it is a hobby, but she said I could use it to communicate the important things happening here in town and in the church. I started warming up to the idea.
Now I am sitting here at my computer while the bread for communion tomorrow is baking. I am the head of the altar guild and I usually bake the bread for communion. That nice Behr Richardson is doing some touch up work on the remodeling work I took on the farm house. I had this idea after Elmer died that I should convert this big house into a bed and breakfast. The house has a lot of history. I don’t want to move out of it - at least not yet. The kids are grown up and don’t really visit much. So why not open the place up to strangers.
Bear Lake is a nice place and it attracts its share of visitors. The problem is there isn’t a lot of places for people to stay. They end up either camping at Johnny’s camp ground (not really sure I would choose that option if I had an option) or they have to travel to the next town up Highway 45. Gretchen Hinkley, our mayor, seemed excited with my plans and she was instrumental in getting the permits approved.
So over this winter, Behr and his men have been working on converting the house into a nice bed and breakfast. There will be at least four good sized rooms. I will get to bake and cook again for a group. I assured Katie that I wouldn’t be competing with her business.
The bread is done. I need to go. Will log on again. Maybe Marion was right this will be a good hobby.
