The wee hours of the early morning are so beautiful--why do I miss them everyday?
The mountain was gorgeous outside our window. The band of color along the
base of the mountain was the sun shining across the trees--there were eagles
everywhere! The fishing must be really good because they were all skimming
along the water in groups, over and over.
I was up at 4:00 am to put the finishing touches on a breakfast I was hired
to provide for a tour boat with 19 people onboard leaving the harbor at 6:15 am.
I have never done anything like this and the order was taken over the phone, so I
am a little bit nervous about how well it was received. The captain was pretty grumpy
and so was his helper when I got there--maybe they are always that way at 6:00 am
with a long trip ahead of them?
They requested food that could be eaten without utensils, so I made bran and rhubarb
muffins and also made a batch of rhubarb muffins with cream cheese frosting. I made a
double batch of To Die For Crescent Rolls and slathered them with butter when they
came out of the oven. I also sent along 3 cartons of juice, Braeburn apples, and fresh
oranges sliced so they are easy to eat. They had fresh coffee brewed to go with the muffins
and crescent rolls. I hope they liked everything! (nervously biting my fingernails)
We had fresh crab for dinner the other night. They were still live when my
husband brought them home, freshly caught that day. I just had to capture the
big grin on our guest's face. Boy he loves seafood!
I talked with Keith this morning and he sounds better. He is looking forward to a
change of scenery for the next 10 days while he waits for the next round of surgery. He
has had lots of visitors--how wonderful people take time out to go and talk with
people that are in the hospital. If you have ever been in there you know the days get
reeaalllyy long just laying there.
Wow-- I haven't even thought about it, but the 4th of July is right around the
corner, isn't it. What kind of plans do you have?
