Living in the country?

Mmmmm. It's a warm, clear day here in Narragansett. A bit of a lazy day since the guests left and I haven't prepared the B&B for tonight's guests yet. The aroma of fresh loam is in the air. Mmmmm. It's a lovely aroma, not like the clay dirt smell in the South, not like the dry farm fields of my uncle's farm in the Midwest. So sweet and organic you almost want to make and eat mud pies.

But restraint prevails. It is just the scent dredged up by the Stanley Paving Company (Wakefield, RI) as they regrade the parking lot and partially pave the driveway.

I'm going to enjoy it while I can because I just realized that all that lovely scent is coming through the open windows along with the dust produced by excavation. Enough of the lazy! time to find dusting gear and get to work!

Book a weekday room in October, mention that you want to visit the new driveway and I'll give you a second night half price.
