Stick Season Begins

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

We’ve had a wonderful autumn here at the Blue Horse.  It’s been a busy one, and we couldn’t have asked for a nicer group of guests.  Many thanks to everyone who stayed with us during this foliage season – it was truly our pleasure to meet you (or see you again!), and we hope that your travels will bring you back our way.

Today is the first quiet day we’ve had in a long time.  Though I love making armies of gruyere biscuits and towers of cornmeal pancakes, this morning my breakfast preparations were limited to microwaving a bowl of Grape Nuts (delicious with a dab of honey – try it!) and while sorting through the mementos of Snowtober.

Luckily, I was able to take a stroll through Pierre’s gardens last week, little thinking it would be my final snow-free visit.

Though we didn’t don Halloween costumes this year, we were able to have fun with the Snor’s sartorial statements.  Here he is as a jester:

And here he is as Monkey:

And here’s Monkey in a gender-bending ensemble:

Snorri also found a new girlfriend this October.  Her name is Daisy. She’s not so sure about Snorri’s romantical overtures.

But who wouldn’t want kisses from this handsome devil?

We’ve enjoyed our surprise snowfall.

While it’s a smidgen on the early side, I’m pretty much a snow enthusiast until mid-February.  And P.S. – some of the runs on Killington are OPEN!!!

Snow on pumpkins!  Festive!

And, just so I won’t succumb to BHI breakfast withdrawal, here’s a shot of yesterday morning’s dessert breakfast – cardamom french toast with gingered Grand Marnier apples and maple whipped cream.  Enjoy!
