This Week at Mon Ami

Leave a comment

lasagna2Good morning!  Despite the blustery weekend winds and dire warnings, it was a good weekend here on the coast.  Power went out in a few spots, but the only “serious” damage I heard of was that the outdoor grill blew away at Jerry’s Tavern.  (Please don’t ask me how I know this!)

Estate Sale:  This Friday and Saturday, 10/31 & 11/1, my team and I will be conducting an in-home sale on behalf of Mr. Lou Kuehner, who has relocated to sunny California.  The entire contents of this smoke-free, pet-free, immaculate home must be sold and the home vacated by Monday morning.  Highlights include:  electric fireplace, nearly new sofa & loveseat, electric recliner, flat screen TV, queen bed, two twin beds, washer/dryer, refrigerator, misc. lamps, chairs, tables, Dell computer, household goods, and potted outdoor plants.  Hours of sale are 9-2 both days.    Terms:  All sales final.  Cash / credit card / local checks accepted.  Address:  04792 Treewood Drive.  Directions:  From Hwy. 101, turn west on 35th, right on Rhododendron, follow the signs.    Here’s the Craigslist link.

We’ve received several inquiries about our holiday season events, so here’s the scoop  …. YES, we will be doing a traditional  Thanksgiving dinner for take-out.  (Yeah, you don’t have to cook!)  Chef Diane and I are working on the menu  and will be posting details and begin taking reservations early November.  And YES, we will be offering TWO high teas in December – the dates soon to be announced.  It’s a busy time for the gang here!
Wishing you a wonderful week full of Grace & Plenty!

I could go on, but I won’t (wink wink).
