Change is inevitable....

So, out with another assistant, and of course right in the peak of the season. It seems that people underestimate the importance of being a good employee and often put their desires first!I could not meet her financial needs so am left in the busiest time of the year, even though I am clear about what we can offer.I guess it is just as well, it was an experiment having 2 assistants and I found it was as dificult as having more than one housekeeper! If there is any question about accountability it never gets resolved... and so on adnauseum....Besides, I really did not ever get any more rest, just more employee angst.I am beginning to believe it may be easier to just do it myself.Of course it is almost impossible to keep smiling that many hours in a day!I may never wrinkle if I build up those muscles like that, or I may end up with Schwartzneger like cheeks...what an apalling thought.... Anyway, we have changed all the bedding to the warm stuff and lit the pilots as the weather has definitely cooled down and are stirring up the spiced cider and cocoa as we speak!I love the first pumkin cheesecakes and apple pies of the fall, and food NEVER tastes as good as when it is cold outside!Speaking of food, new favorite place, in the RAD, (river arts district)called Junction. Incredible and I went more than once to see if their perfection was an accident, but clearly it is NOT!A GREAT mixologist and wonderful food in a really well done atmosphere. Hard to top that!get reservations as it won't be long before it gets too busy to get in!
