A City Boy Making His Way in the Country


This week at Orchard House is going to be great!  Really though, better than great!  Like if you could have dinner with Cher and then get drunk with Lindsey Lohan or do pilates with Madonna.  The bathrooms should be done this week.  I’m painting and sanding floors like a beast.  And our new website is launching…tomorrow.

Last night we attended a wonderful fundraiser at The Works in Newark.  By coincidence, we ran into our gorgeous neighbors at the event, and were introduced to many of our fellow Granvillians.  And after, we went to Meijer, where Donnie walked the fluorescent soaked aisles and kept proclaiming, “I just feel comfortable here.”

This week I need to read about sheep – as our pair are coming next week.  I need to decide on our breakfast menu…and cook it a few times…as we are opening March 1.  Yes, March 1st.  March first!  It’s all Lucky Charms and watermelon Bubble Yum over here.  Positive thoughts will get us into the end zone.  (Sorry, I’m watching the Super Bowl.)  If our great country can get a man on the moon or if Sarah Palin can be elected to a public office, then we can have Orchard House Bed and Breakfast ready to open in 22 days!

We bought a sofa today.  And some amazing side tables.  And P.S., when I say amazing, I mean dirty amazing!  So much more is left to buy!  Luckily, I’m a shopping specialist.  I would rival any of those tacky housewives or even a Hilton or two.  I’m like Jonathan Adler without the stupid pottery.  Or the nostalgic, but icky, references to the seventies.

And so it’s all rainbows and butterflies here at Orchard House.  My Little Pony’s are frolicking with the llamas.  The Smurfs are singing songs of love.  And I may be mistaken, but I think we have a play-date with the Muppet Baby gang this week.  I’ll ask Baby Kermit his inspiration for the Rainbow Connection.  Because, of course, Orchard House will be opening soon, for the lovers, the dreamers, and me!
