Renovations Complete!

Happy at work last night - like the new curtain?


Regular followers of this blog know that I work part-time as a front desk agent at a boutique hotel in Lewes, Delaware.

For the past two months the hotel where I work has been undergoing total (ceilings - no more popcorn ceilings - to floors to toilets) renovations.  

To say working at the hotel during the renovations has been an inconvenience would be an understatement.  But you know me, I'm easily inconvenienced (fussbudget that I am). 

Yesterday, when I returned to work was welcomed by the final phase, the renovation of the front desk area.  Ah, the smell of new carpets, manna from Heaven.

I am SO LUCKY to still be able to work, albeit part-time.  And the icing on the cake is that I work at this top-notch hotel in thee visitor destination, Lewes, Delaware.  

As I had stated earlier in this posting, I am a fuss budget.  I'm a clean freak.  I am a PAIN IN THE YOU KNOW WHERE.  I wouldn't work at a hotel that I wouldn't stay myself.  Of course I can't afford to stay at the hotel where I work.  The only exception being when I'm snowed in and that has happened twice, and believe me I luxuriated in that king sized bed with the fantastic water view.

So folks, with all the bad that is happening in the world.  With all my aging issues. With all my constant battles fighting tent worms in my wild cherry tree and starlings building nests in my Purple Martin house. I am happy to report that I work at a fabulous place.  

Good things happen to good people hotels.

  1. Ron -from your pictures (very nice ones too) the hotel looks great. Must seem like a brand new building - renos do that. I even like the fresh industrial smells. Looking very dapper - you fit right in.

    1. Pat,
      I like those "fresh industrial smells" too. Unfortunately, many don't. We do live in an oversensitive society today. "Oh I smell new paint!" "Oh, I can't stand the smell of new carpets!" About the only complaint I haven't heard is about the new toilets. Give them time though, some will find something to complain about there too.

  2. Ron - I just watched your short clip. Somehow I think I'd enjoy playing a game of clue in that lobby!

    1. Pat,
      Some guests have played games in our lobby. Maybe more will do so now with the newly renovated lobby.

  3. I love those two eagles - - and I used to have an armchair EXACTLY like that one, only a different color. I left it in Texas when I moved (because my cat had scratched it apart....unfortunately....)

    1. Jon,
      The eagles "make" the lobby. The owner of the hotel has excellent taste in decor. But you don't want to bump your head on one of those eagles, they're solid!
