The off-season is quickly slipping away...this is our time to paint, refresh, etc. for the short season of rentals which begins in earnest Memorial Day weekend. This year, our first renters are Carrie & Co. with a heavier than normal June to follow.
It is hard to believe that this is our 7th season. Heavens! Where have the years gone? Thanks to the gasoline crisis our summer has been difficult to fill and as of today, there are still 2 prime weeks open. Thankfully, June has been better than normal and will help offset the vacancies in July & August.
In July we head off to Vancouver, BC for 2 days before a 14-day Alaskan cruise. AND I still don't have airfare booked! We are worried about leaving the 2 dogs but our neighbor has promised to take good care of them. Our 2 princesses are very spoiled and will be pretty depressed without us.
Mother's Day last Sunday was divine! The kids took Fran & I to Deerfield Country Club for brunch. What a treat! The food was great and the company even better. Little Miss Robin was dressed to kill and sweet as ever. We love and cherish every minute spent with she and the kids. Big Daddy Mike has a new job and is traveling most of the time so it was extra special that he was able to be with us all.
<- This was a real "Kodak" moment for Gramma! Robin doesn't like me to take her photo because of the red-eye light on my camera but thankfully, the restaurant was so sunny I was able to turn off my flash to get this great shot of her.
