Christmas is Coming … Keep it Simple

Christmas is Coming … Keep it Simple

There is nothing like fresh greens at the holidays.

It is the smell I remember from my childhood  …  crunching through the snow to find the boughs and shaking off snow so you can put them on the mantle. That memory still makes makes me smile.

We find plenty of spots in and around the B&B to incorporate our backyard greenery. And this year, we found a new place for those holiday greens — our dining room chandelier. The cost is minimal and the effect is unbelievable.

Crisp Mornings with Apple-Sage Sausage

Crisp Mornings with Apple-Sage Sausage

Crisp mornings make me think of warm Oatmeal Pancakes and hearty Apple-Sage Sausage with maple syrup and some fruit sliding down the side of the pancakes. What’s not to love?

When we first took on the role of innkeepers at The Moss House Bed and Breakfast, I knew the best thing I could do was reach out to all my cook friends and family and gather their favorite breakfast treats. So The Moss House Apple-Sage Sausage was born and became a keeper for the last 8 1/2 years.

Sail Away on the Jeanie B

Sail Away on the Jeanie B

Nothing — and I mean nothing – beats a day on a sailboat or a beautiful evening and returning into the sunset on a glorious breezy evening!

Scott and I have owned sailboats, but nothing beats going out on a big-rigged boat like the Jeanie B. Ahhh … just thinking about it puts me on board, cruising down the Pamlico River and smelling the fresh air with sails unfurled and the river moving past me.

Rollin’ on the River in Washington NC

Rollin’ on the River in Washington NC

It is a warm summer evening or even a cool fall night and the walks along the Pamlico River always make me smile. The town of Washington, NC ( sometimes called “Little Washington”) owes a great deal of its unique wonder to this glorious river we live on. It’s what drew Scott and me here to open the bed and breakfast. It offers home to the many kinds of birds that nest near here. And, of course, the Pamlico River provides a perfect setting for walks, sailing, fishing or a kayak paddle.

Rainbows in Washington NC … Gold Still at Large!

Isn’t this a delightful sight?

Ever dream of a rainbow with its proverbial pot of gold? Well, this one has the lovely city of Washington, North Carolina at the end!  We were driving over the bridge one rainy evening and saw this colorful display.
