Sunny's Rooster Ramblings
Like the new catchy name? I had to change from Chicken Scratch because I started a blog and called it Chicken Scratch,( http://sunnysroost.blogspot.com/ ) then found out I shouldn't use the same name for two "blogs."
It has been a very busy several weeks for us. Last year I overheard someone unfavorably compare the yard to an unmade bed. This hurt my feelings since I was paying a small fortune to a lawn service to treat the lawn and gardens and get some life into them. Due to the very dry summer, nothing they did seemed to help. This year I just have someone helping me with the gardens, you know, sorting the weeds from the flowers, teaching me the finer point of spacing and mulching. The gardens look much better AND, tada! The lawn is growing and appears healthy (delayed reaction to last years treatments?)
We adopted a rescue dog from the SPCA at the end of April. She is a German Shepard mix about 2 years old who was found abandoned in an abandoned home. She is still learning her commands and manners but everyone who has met her enjoys her company and she loves having people around.
This May we squeezed in some special family time. Our oldest grandson graduated from high school and we went to Missouri for the occasion. On the drive down we received a call from number 3 son, Mark, that he had proposed to his girlfriend and she accepted, wedding to be next March. Three of our four sons were able to attend the graduation and the missing son had a good reason to stay home in VA. The day after graduation Phillip became father to a baby girl, Aberly Elizabeth Matthews. Of course she is the worlds most beautiful baby. Mother and daughter are home and doing very well.
Don't forget our Sound of Music special, we still have packages left.
Relax all evening; Start the day with a full breakfast
We encourage you to take your first cup of coffee and sit on the porch swing before you tuck into our full breakfast. Unless, of course you have an early date to meet friends. Or maybe you have the first ride on the Jetboat and prefer to eat later. Simply let us know the night before the time and food you would prefer so we can make this YOUR vacation.
We've found that the simpler down home breakfast items are in greater demand than the gourmet items. The most requested item is by far, Sunny's scones. They come in many varieties, from healthy such as; whole wheat, oat, multigrain, or sweet, maybe blueberry, cranberry-orange, or pecan praline. Sunny makes the scones fresh every morning, so give her your preference early. Add homemade flavored honey butter to fresh baked scones warm from the oven. Send us an email and we'll share the recipe.
Breakfast at Sunny's Roost is served Family-style in our large dining room. We attempt to have a variety of local items on hand to help spark your breakfast appetite, so you can choose from the following list or ask if we can make something special. Here's just a sample of breakfast items Sunny enjoys serving:
- Orange cinnamon French toast served with orange honey butter and maple syrup
- Eggs of many persuasions including omelets with assorted fillings, fritatas, stratas, and baked eggs
- Add some meat to breakfast; sausages, bangers, breakfast steaks, pork chops or bacon - Canadian or regular
- Buttermilk, whole wheat, buckwheat, oat pancakes OR waffles!
- Most items can be made gluten free or vegan if enough notice is given
We want Sunny's Roost to the kind of place where you feel comfortable kicking off your shoes and putting your feet up on the furniture, coming down to breakfast in the comfortable bathrobes you find in the room, or inviting friends to join you on the roomy front porch.
What are you waiting for? We're looking forward to your visit Our home may be 100+ years old and within the Village of Lewiston's Historic District, but our welcome is ever in the present. The quiet, after concert evenings and our comfortable beds let you rest up for the next day's adventure.
