Hot and Smoky Here in Fairbanks

Friday, June 25, 2010

Hi there,
Long time no blog. I apologize. Pike's Waterfront Lodge has been hopping and I have been hopping along with it so not much sitting at the desk.

Well, it is hard to believe it is almost the end of June already.
We have had a cool summer here in Fairbanks but it is pretty warm today and is was pretty warm yesterday.

Once again, it is pretty smoky around here. They are calling for thunderstorms this afternoon. I hope there is no lightning.

I am driving to Anchorage tomorrow so the kids can go camping with their dad and aunt and uncle next weekend so you know it will be pouring cats and dogs the whole time.

I don’t have any funny stories to relay. I did spend the last three days taking care of one of our guests who came in with a youth symphony orchestra and came down with a nasty virus and had to delay her departure. I am happy to report that last night I got her to eat and today she was up and about and I have taken her to the airport and she will be reunited with her group this afternoon. She was a lovely woman and so sweet. She sort of became part of the family. It was actually kind of therapeutic for me to take care of her. It made me have to stop and slow down for a few minutes.

I will miss her. Mama Kay was instrumental in taking care of our guest as well. Mama Kay is very nurturing and caring, hence the name “ mama Kay”.

That is about all I have for now.

The sun is shining, the flowers are in bloom and life is good.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and a very safe 4th of July weekend.

Till we meet again,
