After a quiet week of workity-work around here, tomorrow more guests arrive–we’re all booked up for the weekend. One of the bookings is friends of ours so that will be nice! Folks we haven’t seen in rather to long.

They’re bringing a dog and a CAT. (The inn is pet-friendly, and we’ve had tons of dogs through here this winter, but the owners tell us that this is only the second time since they’ve been running the inn that a cat will visit.) This is all good, of course, because I love cats. :-)

Let’s see, what else? I have ice cream making down to an absolute science. The weather has been wintry but not awful. I taught Mark gin rummy and have been beating him soundly every evening (obviously I’m not a very good teacher).

Oh and there’s been the fun of assembling our wedding party, and calling people and asking them to be grooms-people and brides-people. (Not men and maids; rather…less traditional, as it happens.) (But of course it would be, wouldn’t it?) We’re a long ways from having the wedding all worked out, but every little bit of progress is good. Onward…

What is your favorite ice cream flavor to make and eat?

Have a great weekend with the guests both on two and four legs.

I am super excited about your wedding. Thanks for the updates as you make progress towards the big day.

Whoah, this comment just appeared in my inbox today! Sorry about that!

Mint chocolate chip is the one I make more than anything else. Though when summer rolls around and I have fresh berries, I'm going to make another stab at strawberry, and then probably blackberry. And of course when I'm home with the Asian pear tree...that too!

The wedding rings should be ready soon! We saw wax molds over the weekend. Gorgeous.
