Strasburg update

Mt Pleasant Farm is a pretty beautiful place to be “stuck.” ¬†Here’s where I am, with really great photos. My room has a view of Signal Knob & its own bath. Mt Pleasant 1812 B&B¬† Not to mention a down comforter and a gray kitten to play with (outside.) So, while I’d rather be in Oaxaca, it could be a whole lot worse.

The funniest thing I saw this week was my horoscope, from Free Will Astrology:

“People travel to faraway places to watch, in fascination, the kind of people they ignore at home,” wrote philosopher Dagobert D. Runes. Your assignment, Virgo, should you choose to accept it, is to refute that assertion. In other words, I’m inviting you to travel to all of your usual haunts and treat everything that happens there with the attitude of a first-time visitor. Just assume that the familiar people and places in your life have stimulating gifts to give and lessons to impart. Remember, though, they can’t do that to the fullest unless you expect them to.



1) Mom’s gained another 2#. Which doesn’t sound like a lot, except that she started at 88 & is now pushing 100. She looks great, and when else can you compliment someone on gaining weight? She’s looking (and says) she’s feeling a lot better. Tonight she discussed all the ways she could have used the same ingredients to make a much better & healthier meal, so you know she’s mending.

2) Almost all the paperwork for the B&B license is in. Everyone is really doing their best to make this happen. Big health inspection is Tues AM. Cross your fingers, light a candle… this WILL happen. I have a bottle of prosecco chilling & ready to sneak into the facility.

3) The rock band turned out to be 6 very nice young people who called me ma’am and didn’t stick tape on anything or steal or break anything at all. Ghost Child shot a video here today, based on a book called House of Leaves. If this has anything to do with a haunted house, please do not tell me. Even more, do not tell my mother.

That’s it for now…. Thank you all for the supportive messages, calls & wishes. I’m relaying them to Mom so she knows just how many people are rooting for her.
