The weather report said rain but coming home there was sleet, I say "No Fair". In retrospect there are worse things, tornadoes, floods, etc so I will cease my whining for the moment. I did find some brave tulips poking their little leaves up, and what I believe might be some of my jonquils. We have had some pretty sunrises and days of sun and the cold is not quite so bitter, next I will be able to open windows and enjoy the breeze. The golfers have been able to play, although I will admit to thinking they are crazy. One of the days we were having 30 mph winds and gusts to 50, maybe good resistance training? There is green starting to show, and the dandelions are taking off. My birds and chinchilla are enjoying fresh tasty salad, the plus side to weeds,lol.

We had our busiest night yet and made our way through it with good feedback from the customers. There were not all that many people, they just all ordered at once and as I keep saying " I am not a cook". I can cook and do, but have not had enough practice to be totally organized or on top of it all. I truly admire a good cook or chef, watching them is like seeing a dance. I did get the food out in fairly good time, but will be much happier when I have a professional in the kitchen. Heather my one trusty bartender jumped in and helped so we stressed and laughed our way through it. I had a few more people come in and two of them are Seniors and seem to be pretty together and are willing to learn what ever we have to teach. I plan on training them to serve, cook and tend bar so that they will be versatile, they seem to like the idea. The 4Th and 5Th of May I have two tournaments and am hoping to have some at least a skeleton crew, but am getting worried. There will be between 50 and 100 on the 4Th and around 50 on the 5Th so will be fairly busy. Of course these numbers are guesses, those little mysteries of life. If you don't hear from me just figure I went screaming out of town, having totally lost my mind.

If I yawn much more I will swallow the keyboard, so will sign off for now. I wish you answers to dreams and enjoyment in what you have. Barbara

My goodness you are one busy girl! Glad the business is going good. I know how hard it can be, Like I said I was a waitress for 32 years.
A new garden tool for $15.00 now thats pretty good. Take some of your stress out on the dirt.
Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for thinking of me. Isn't that funny how people you don't really know pop into your head?

You are busy!! What is the specialty of the house at the restaurant/club?

Hope you get some good weather! It was up to 80 here the other day.

Hi Barbara,

Hope your weather has improved and you can let some fresh air in the house, by now. I love to open windows at this time of the year.

You are a busy woman, but it sounds like you enjoy the challenge.

I enjoyed catching up on the news at the Clark Homestead.

Take care and best wishes!
