Where is this Bed and Breakfast!


Dear Friends,


One morning, I was working out on my treadmill, talking to my sister Paddi on the phone, and reading your e-mail messages (yes, all at the same time!) when I came across this message. I start to read it out loud over the phone to her. 


Dear FlyLady,

I wanted to let you know about the wonderful B&B my husband and I stayed at this Memorial Day weekend. The small but simply furnished kitchen was well stocked with delicious healthy snacks and meals. Homemade waffles with blackberries were served from a beautiful, clean kitchen. The living areas and bedrooms were furnished with fresh, plumped pillows, lovely matching sheets and down comforter, and scented candles everywhere. The bathroom – ah… bubble bath, lotions, and fresh, white towels. The library was stocked with books, magazines and yoga videos…


Paddi and I were both getting excited – where was this wonderful sounding bed and breakfast? We always keep our eyes peeled for pampering opportunities, especially ones we can share with friends and family. I continued to read:


… Best of all, my husband and I spent time together with no interruptions, chores, or traffic. Okay – you guessed it… thanks to you, this is my home. Thank you, thank you.

The tears started flowing, we were speechless. Thank YOU to the sender – this e-mail made my day!
I put it at the beginning of my book Sink Reflections. I am in purple puddles every time I read it!

FlyLady Tip: Stop rushing around! Slow down and set your timer to help keep you focused. You will be surprised at how much you can get done!

Being in a hurry never got you there any faster! ~FlyLady
