Tonight's esteemed guest is a storyteller, and University of Alberta professor. I love story telling and would have loved to have heard her tell one of her favourites. Some story tellers can mesmerize the listeners as they weave their tales and draw the audience in to the fascinating story. One of the best things about this life is the hospitality industry, the Inn, where I get to meet these amazing folks. There is no way, out here in the boonies, that I would ever cross paths with incredible folks, like my story teller guest. There was a fortune teller, and there have been folks from many walks of life with their own stories to tell. Each person is a wealth of experiences and a life rich in details. Most want to talk. That is why they choose a small Inn over a large hotel. They enjoy the social interaction rather than the television and I love them all, well, almost all.
We shared a farmhouse supper of stewed pork hocks, sour cream garden potatoes, Kobocha squash also from the garden, asparagus and broccoli and two slices of an almost flour less sugar less date loaf for dessert with green tea. I hope she is able to come back again soon.
The company was beyond marvellous and that is grand.
But generally, life is grand. Isn't it?
