After leaving the Chalet, I was escorted to Plumfield B&B by Emma. The first person I met was Regina Marie, Plumfield’s concierge. After supper, I went out to chore with Linda. We gathered eggs and I noticed that they were green!
I have always fancied horses, and to see one up close was beyond my expectations.
What a party we had that first evening! Cookies, taffy, and other sweets were eaten in abundance.
When it was all over, Granny Plum came to “just tuck you in.”
It was so thoughtful.
The next day, I was all up and ready for whatever should happen. I am flabbergasted at the amount of hard work and energy it takes to keep an estate up and running. To begin with, I helped Regina Marie with the making of beds. I didn’t know how meticulous the task can be! Next, I wandered to the kitchen, following my nose most of the way thereJ. I found Linda mixing bread dough. It was quite hard for me to wait, as I like to peek in to check on it.
Later, Lady Annette and I hauled a load of pumpkins.
We must have been a sight to behold, struggling with the wheelbarrel. I am sure Lady Annette would have found it an easier task without my assistance!
After this I retired into the Recreation room for a little relaxation.
Brenda came in and said, “Oh, I’m so glad to see you! Will you please read me a story?” I could see she had a book in her hand so I readily agreed.
Another day found us traveling out to a flea market garage sale. We found interesting items. We explored a box of tools
and met some fine clowns
but didn’t find anything to bring home.
There are many interesting signs in the area. Here are a few that made me laugh.
I will write more when time allows…they are treating me as one of their own and are keeping me busy!
