the weather outside is frightful

the Greenville Arms, delightful. Thanks goodness I outran the snow,which has caught up with me about 5 hours after I left home. Woke up this morning to slushy, slippery streets in NJ and my car covered in powder. When I got to Greenville, 3 hours later, the roads were totally dry and it hadn't begun to snow yet. I'm inside, catching up with e-mail and staying in touch on the blog. Here's what greets you when you enter the inn. Chocolates to tempt the most diet-conscious. Chocolate goodies for sale in the former parlor, too. And out of the picture, tables loaded with fabrics and anything else you might need for an art quilt workshop. A former carriage house has been turned into a huge classroom, with two guest rooms upstairs. I guess it's time for me to get over there and set up for tomorrow so I can enjoy the wine and cheese at 6:00 tonight. Will check in later. Stay warm, everyone!

It looks lovely, Rayna. So glad you made it before the bad weather.

Can't wait til my daughter embraces the idea of mom GONE for a whole week; then I will come play too.

HOpe the weather improves for you all. I guess I shouldn't gloat but it is glorious in South Texas, with a bit of chill last week we finally got our fall color. Yes, there is fall color in Texas. I do long for the chocolate -- don't think I am supposed to as I just was hypnotised to acquire a healthy dislike of refined sugar. I suspect my subconscious is going to win this one.

There is nothing either refined or sugary about this divine DARK chocolate with jalapeno peppers, or with pistachios and apricots, or anything else in this home made candy emporium. Sigh...
