How I love everything Valentines day. Not because we, as women, expect wonderful gifts from our spouses, but because it is an opportunity to  celebrate the love we feel for one another. Not only the love of our spouses, but our children, and grand children as well.

Okay, to be frank, I love the baking, creating and decorating of the day just as much as finding ways to express how much I love my family.

Here are a few of the treats I have had the opportunity to make thus far.


Oh I See

December 8, 2017

Oh, I See

  I woke up very early this morning with my cheaters still on. I do that sometimes as I am a reader and I read at night before bedtime. I read until my eyes start to gloss over and then I know it is the perfect time to slowly turn my nook off and lay my cheaters aside. If I’m too abrupt, I wake myself up so I have to read at least another chapter, which is okay by me, but it does make getting good restorative sleep a bit dicey. I love when it happens though. It reminds me of a baby who can just fall asleep mid anything. I have a feeling this could happen to any one of us as we approach a certain age. Read more →

The Waterbed

As I snuggled under the covers this morning, hoping for just a few more minutes of peace and quiet before facing the day, my mind wondered  back in time to our first bed.

It was a monsterous  thing, a wooden framed, pedestaled, full wave water bed. It literally took up our whole bedroom. Albeit the rooms were small as were most bedrooms in 1950’s built homes.

Never having purchased a bed myself at that time, I had no concept of anything other than a traditional mattress.  When I moved out of the house I just assumed that I could take my bed from home and to my delight my parents obliged.

Maple Cove B&B likes wine too

We just listed Maple Cove B&B with Winery Adventures. I had no idea we had that many tasting facilities near us. I am going to have to systematically check these out to make sure they are up to our standards…lol

Check them out as well!


Farm Fresh Eggs

Just wanted you all to know this is who gathers the eggs for our breakfasts…



Book Club comes to the B&B

On December 12th the Living Word Book Club had their Christmas gathering at the B&B. Mark was here to greet them upon arrival and I was home in time to enjoy a beverage with them and watch as they did their gift exchange and ended the evening with a delicious cake Linda made. It was a chocolate lava cake. Now I’m wondering, why can’t I make a chocolate lava pancake. I’m sure someone out there has.

Christmas Time is here

This wonderful article was submitted by our association and is a great reminder of the things to do in Rochester Michigan during the season.

With a wide range of restaurants to choose from, along with two wine tasting venues, (Fieldstone Wine  and  Thumbs Up Wine Trail) lots of quaint shops and friendly people, you will not lack for anything to do.


Interview with Oxford TV

Thank you Terry!




When our guests depart,  I am always a bit sad but then I read the comments they leave for us in the books we have in each of the Suites for people to leave a comment or pray or suggestion. I have attached a few from the Hemingway suite. Thank you for the kind words. You know who you are!! To think that Leonard or as some know it,  Addison Township, is getting more visitors. Our guests love the area, the restaurants, the ambiance and since many are from not too far away, the drive.
