Tonight as the sun goes down the weather is perfect to sit on the porch and watch the night fall. It has been a busy weekend with many wonderful guests. It is this time that I enjoy the most, the quiet after the wonderful chaos that is a busy weekend guests coming and going, making recommendations for activities and dining, breakfast, cleaning rooms. Rutherfordton is so peaceful and that is one of the reasons I love this place so much. Many of my neighbors are feeling the same tranquility as they pass by and greet me with their pleasant hellos and brief conversations. We are all ready to start the week refreshed by these precious quiet moments.
