Early Morning Reflections

Lost an hour this morning, something never good for an innkeeper. Thankfully I do a lot of advance work so in the morning I can have that all important “ME” time. A cup of early coffee and a little local news does wonders! Cool here in Maitland today….I know, those of you up north are laughing but it really did get cool. It was only 40 when I arrived in my kitchen before 7am. It will be a gorgeous day here in Central Florida, or as we call Maitland – “New England With Palm Trees”. The oven is heating, early coffee is out for guests, the sun is creeping over the trees, the lake is shining and the birds are singing….AHHHHHHHHHH…….. After yesterday’s blustury winds the stillness is most welcome this morning. Today we greet one of our business travel regulars and a wonderful couple from Connecticut for their 6th stay with us. HELLO Charlene & Dave! Coming up later this week is one of the favorite events of the year – the Winter Park Arts Festival. This is a juried festival of amazing art held right on Park Avenue in Winter Park. Bookings are made here one year in advance, usually the same folks, so it is nice to greet old friends. Well, the oven is beeping so I am “ON”. More later……
