Our veggie garden is in full swing… and we got the cutest summer squashes called ‘Patty Pans’ in abundance. They look more like some UFOs in bright yellow!
Also, the young hens are stepping up to the ‘plate’ and are producing wonderful eggs… some are a lot bigger than normal ones and I hope that the chicken’s bum is alright and not too sore from laying this ‘Monster egg’!
The first snowflakes fell the day after a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with a house full of family members! They all came to help with our wood supply for the winter. Lots of chopping wood, filling the tractor bucket, driving it all to the wood shed and stacking it nicely for us. An added huge bonus was that while some worked outside… some worked inside in the kitchen and at the end of the day we had a wonderful turkey dinner on our table. We hope that you all had as great a Thanksgiving weekend as we did, and with that, we close our 2016 season here at The Log House B&B.
Now, it is time to work more on our coffee business… so far we have six different choices for sale at the local Monashee Community Co-op in Lumby. There was even an article printed in the local newspaper. The address of the Co-op where you can buy our ‘Jar Coffee’ is: 1965 Shuswap Avenue, Lumby.
I can’t believe how wet our July has been… but hopefully, we will have a hot August and a nice September. On those few sunny days we had in July… once the sun was out… it was hot and the dogs could only survive with their daily swims in our creek.
During all the snowy cold days, we had some time to think about our two logos we planned to have by spring 2016. Here they are… one for the B&B and one for our Coffee Roastery here at the B&B. We hope you guys like it!
This year fall has come so quickly… didn’t we just have hot weather and were all worried about wildfires? Now, the leaves are falling down to the ground. Not much more growing in the garden with daily frosts and temperatures sinking each night. Canadian Thanksgiving is coming up on Monday, October 12! After the holiday weekend, The Log House B&B will be closing for the season 2015. We want to thank all our B&B guests… the local ones and the ones who came from different corners of the world. We will be open again in May 2016, Sonja and Brian
The maintenance crew Black Rose and Sunny is working hard to get the lawn ‘cut’ in time before we opened the B&B on June 1st for this season!
It was so funny to see them while I was cooking in the kitchen (don’t mind my dirty windows) or sometimes it looked like Black Rose was right at the door… ready to come in for a cup of tea…
How I love these little guys… all legs and curly hair. Amazing how the stallion helped during birth of the filly, licked her dry and supported his little baby girl when she tried to get up for the first time in her life. The filly arrived a couple of weeks ago and then three days ago another baby. This time a little colt. Welcome to the Creighton Valley little foals.

After a long stretch of beautiful fall weather and colors… the first snow has arrived. Earlier in the week we had minus 16 degrees in the morning and the cats were huddled around the fire. Muji and Attila don’t seem to mind the cold temperatures and are enjoying the steel blue sky and crisp winter air.
