Mike and I got home about an hour ago, unloaded the car and put everything away.
What a wonderful Birthday I had. It was great seeing Krissyann and Stephen once again. It has been way too long. We stayed at the http://www.mountainthyme.com/AboutTheRooms.htm
I did have a delicious chocolate cake that Rhonda had made. In case you were wondering, I finished off the last two pieces, but I did share with the rest.
The morning of my Birthday, Rhonda and Mike, the innkeepers made Creme Brulee French Toast. The four of us really sunk some teeth into that. It was out of this world.
Mike built a fire outside at the request of Stephen. We ran into Wally World to pick up what we needed and headed back. That was a such a great ending to a great day.
Then it came time for Krissyann Stephen to depart. I told myself I would not cry because I was so thankful for the great time we had with them.
We had the B&B to ourselves for a couple of days and you couldn't pry us from the porch. The nights were so cool and you could hear all the little critters making noise.
Two nights, Rhonda and Mike made dinner (which isn't a part of the package) and we really enjoyed getting to know them better. What a lovely couple they are. On Wed. Night we took them to dinner at the Country Club. This is in Hot Springs Village. When I saw the prices on the menu I just knew there wasn't going to be enough food to fill any of us up, so I ordered shrimp to go with my steak. I was thinking $13.00 for a steak? How much can there be on the plate, especially prime cut. Merciful heavens, when that food came out we could have fed the whole Inn. There was no room left for dessert.
Thursday, we went diamond hunting. That was very interesting and a lot of work. You would dig and fill up a bucket then go back to the wash station to clean all of that mess. You had to screens of stuff. Mike mostly sat while I hauled the dirt and screened it. We didn't find a diamond, but I had fun, got really filthy, but I had fun. Mike stayed clean.
Oh, Stephen had told Rhonda and Mike about Mike's M&M's that Stephen held on the cruise. Mike thought he would never get them back. One evening, Rhonda called me aside and said she had taken Mike's M&M's off the dresser and placed them in the room next to us.
Mike came down to breakfast the next morning and said he wanted the Police called, there had been a robbery. They asked Mike what was missing, like jewelry, purse, wallet. He said no, none of that....something more valuable. Finally he said it was his bag of M&M's. The three of us burst out laughing because it's hard to get one over on Mike.
