Nin enjoying the nice weather

My last day. Preparing a 20 lb. turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, carrots, peas, orange salad, and strawberry shortcake for tonight’s meal and some special visitors that are coming up to stay the night.

This week has been beautiful weather wise. It’s been up to 63 degrees with incredible views and calm winds. Very unusual. It’s allowed me to get out and hike several times which has been nice.

I’ve really enjoyed the staff. Yesterday Nin clawed up into my lap, letting me know that I’ve officially been accepted. Nin’s is certainly pampered up here. He’s waited on, continuously patted, and often sleeps on the map table in the weather room looking out at the one of the best office views anywhere, the Northern Presidentials.

I certainly do hope that I get the chance to come back and to this again!
