i post. becca, to answer your question, unfortunately, i can't answer you at the time! no worries, though, i'll tell you sooner or later... hehehhe.

so, its been quite some time since i posted. i'm at work, as usual. i love it here. i near pinch myself every day... continuing to convince myself that i am employed here... i am an innkeeper... i do have my dream job! (or at least one of them, any way!)

today, myself and jacque (the other day innkeeper) met early (before i was to report at noon to start my 'official' work day). we met to go shopping for new quilts and sheets for the suites. it was fun and we got a lot of good deals. we ended up getting quite a few sheet sets that were 1000 thread count! i didn't know the count went so high!

so, my day consisted of switching out old comforters for new, lovely ones, switching a few pictures from room to room, rearranging some night tables to better fit certain spaces in certain rooms, taking a few reservations, and tidying up a bit in my 'office'...

it's been a fun day. tomorrow i will iron the new cover lay we got for our king sleigh bed in the presidential suite (nina and lynette, this is the room we stayed in...lynette, we got rid of the bedspread that had the stain!! no worries all, it was a coffee stain).

any who, it snowed out today and that was lovely.

first thing when i woke up this morning, i had to grab my camera for a great shot. the sun light was just peeking in through the long window in my kitchen. the shade was pulled down, so it was just along the edges of the rectangular outline, that the warm, soft, amber hues of the sun were showing themselves...so pretty.

hmmm...just ate a caesar salad. ever wonder the history of the caesar salad? i just googled it to find out...seems there is no concrete history, but most likely it was invented in 1924... read for yourself...

"Most historians believe that Caesar salad honors restaurateur Caesar Cardini (1896-1956), who invented it in Tijuana, Mexico in 1924 on the Fourth of July weekend. It is said that on this busy weekend, Cardini was running low on food and he put together a salad for his guests from what was left over in the kitchen. His original recipe included romaine, garlic, croutons, and Parmesan cheese, boiled eggs, olive oil and Worcestershire sauce. The original salad was prepared at tableside. When the salad dressing was ready, the romaine leaves were coated with the dressing and placed stem side out, in a circle and served on a flat dinner plate, so that the salad could be eaten with the fingers."

interesting, eh? lately, i've been fascinated with finding out the history and origins of every day life things- food, words, places, babies...etc.

nina and i saw 'atonement' the other night at the theater. i thought it was good... nina REALLY liked it. it is up for all these awards- oscars, golden globes, etc... i can see why. very artistically put together...especially the score and how it aligns with each scene precisely...very cool.

a typewriter, of all things, was actually interwoven beautifully as a musical instrument, of sorts, throughout the entire film. neato...

any way, i liked the film, very much, but i don't think it blew me away... i've thought about the film here and there...but it hasn't absorbed my thoughts as much as other films have in the past... and they say that if a film causes you to think and think and think...then it was a great work.

any way...enough of that. i would have to say that 'dumb and dumber' must take the cake for that type of a film, in my life, that has caused me to think, ponder, dream...wonder....again and again. oh, life.

well, i have lots of more little tidy-uping things to do here before i head home...so, tata.

Wow...curiosity overwhelms me! Is there no balm in Gilead? You MUST at least promise that ONE DAY you'll divulge the contents of "the package."

Ha ha! I Just remembered how Lynette doesn't like to sleep in beds where people have had sex and I can IMAGINE what she thought when she saw the coffee stain! Very funny. I wish I could have been there.

Let me knwo next time you do a girls night because if I can I'll come over and join!

We're doing one here on February 2nd. yay!!! and there was one more thing...I must go back and re-read...

Oh...I have to both agree and disagree with you about a great film. I happen to LOVE the art of cinematography and films stick with me longer than with most...and there have been some that were just plain bad or very hollywood that have stuck. But yes, for the most part I agree. And I'm glad to hear your review of Atonement cz I've wanted to see it but I wondered if it was all just hype. Like Titanic was. I didn't like Titanic much. It was like cotton candy. Sweet, but not much substance.
