Money Going Out is Bad!

We had a big spending day last Sunday.   My front loading Washing Machine went out last week.    Energy Efficient etc.    Lauren and I went on a Sunday shopping spree to see what we could find in the Walla Walla Valley that would meet our needs.   (Shop local)

First stop:   Sears on Main Street Home Store:    We were able to check out the top lines of Washers/Dryers and then go home and do our home work online.      We also checked out what was available in Tri Cities, WA.    Lastly, we drove down to Milton Freewater, Or to an appliance store to find out that the store was closed on Sundays….Boo Hoo!!!! My car decided to act up and not start…. That was mid afternoon.   Sitting for about 1/2 hour  I tried once more while I was on the phone with AAA to find it turned over and started.

Driving back to Walla Walla on the back roads I dropped the car off to my mechanic’s garage!

Life at the Manor

This winter we have been busy with maintenance at the Manor!   I have an excellent worker who told me we needed to do this, that and more…..As a result, our guests will find it a tad bit more pristine, tidy and just plain lovely!

During the winter months, I lost a few chickens which always makes me said.   We lost “Big Bertha and a few
“Veronica’s”.    In addition, I was able to add four new Americana Sex link hens.    Batumn’s…. They were all on the small side and would let me hold them.

Wouldn’t you know we have had a few “gang” wars with the Rhode Island Reds, and the Americana Sex links!    I am rooting for the new Americana Sex Links……(blue egg’s)   and they let me hold them.

Full house this week in March.    I can tell it is going to be a wonderful year!

Stone Creek Manor’s Venues

Welcome 2013!   I am pleased to announce that Stone Creek Manor has been busy working on the property inside and out.  We are so excited about this coming year.

Please call Tiffany or Lauren to get your spot on the calendar.   We have only a few spots left.

What’s new at the Manor

We were so busy last year that I could hardly keep my head above water.    Thank you guests for thinking of Stone Creek Manor with your lodging and event venues at the Manor.    End of the 2012 Calendar year and into the 2013 calendar year.

Last May, I acquired farm fresh eggs served all summer by my free range chickens.    Brown Jumbo Eggs……

We were so lucky to acquire Henry the II, 9 Veronica’s and 1 big Bertha.    I was worried at first that Henry would be crowing at the crack of dawn each morning.  Since he is a young rooster he has had to learn quite a bit about taking care of all his hens.   Only a few of our guests have mentioned that they heard a rooster crowing.       If the dogs are in the kennel or off the grounds I will let the chickens out of their large playground and let them roam the property.      They have a 100 by 40 foot playground and chicken coop.   We get about 10 eggs a day during the spring and summer months.   Now that it is cold egg laying has ceased and I am throwing straw bales in the large coop for them to keep warm.    They are eating and sleeping quite a bit.    This whole chicken experience has been something for me.   City girl vs Country living.

Ski Bluewood

Forgot to mention: Last week we had two groups of guests visit from Portland, OR and Scottsdale, AZ to “Ski Bluewood”. Wouldn’t you know that they had just a bit of new snow and rain. (this group of 4 were 3 snowboarder’s and one skiier)

This week, as of this morning: 14 inches of new snow and 24 degrees. Another perfect reason to come visit Walla Walla during the winter months. Great powder snow for all those younger snowboarders and skiier’s!

Ski Bluewood is just 40 miles away. Elevation: 5400 feet with 1000 feet of verticle…
