How To Make Yummy Granola

Serene Bedroom

Having a Bed and Breakfast in our Loft calls for getting creative about making breakfast. During the week, we serve a continental breakfast with cereal, bagels, coffee, juice and fruit. On the weekends I might do shrimp and grits, vegi scrambles, cheese grits, or the regular standby, bacon, eggs and toast. Duane has got it down now and makes the weekend breakfast when I have to be somewhere bright and early.

One thing I like is to make homemade granola. For myself, I make a not-cooked version with

Artists in Residence

I am having a lot of fun running the The Urban Oasis Bed and Breakfast here at 130 A Krog Street in Atlanta. I am not your typical Bed and Breakfast proprietor. First of all, I don’t take just anyone, anytime. If someone calls at the last minute wanting accommodations, I sweetly say, Oh, I’m so sorry we don’t have any availability for tonight. Or if they call with some attitude or weird situation, same response, “no room at the inn”. But we have had some really great guests and actually none that were not great in their own way.

Wedding at the Urban Oasis

My friends Mickey and Jackie tied the knot Saturday night, here at the Urban Oasis. Jackie’s Mom, Kathy and Dad, Jack and her Aunts and Uncles also stayed here for the weekend.

Back in the fall, when Jackie and her mother went looking at event spaces, Jackie told her that she knew of a great warehouse loft space that did weddings. But I think a warehouse space didn’t exactly fit her mom’s pictures of the setting where Jackie would get married.

Five item must see/must do list for Buenos Aires

My friend Joe is off to Argentina on the Fourth of July. There are a bunch of us who are very envious. He asked me to give him a list of the five places on my Buenos Aires must see/must do list. So here goes:

1.San Telmo Street Fair on Sundays. On Sundays they block the streets off and vendors come and have a flea market kind of thing in the square and on the streets surrounding the square in this quaint old neighborhood. They had stalls with old vintage cameras and one of vintage record players some with the horns and everything. There were really interesting items I don’t usually see around here.

Looking Super

Danneman’s is now painted and the old furniture has been purchased by Bobby at the Pizza place down the street, so it is mostly cleaned out. Grant and I started bringing in and arranging all of our treasures . It’s pretty funny that we are both obsessed in the same way. We arrange things and then have to stand around and admire it. We even went back over there tonight. I had gone to Home Depot and bought two palms for either side of the front door. Grant met me over at the building to help me get them out of the car and bring them inside. But truth be told, we both just wanted to see how it looked at night and congratulate each other on how great it’s looking.

Whether you have three days in Buenos Aires or you plan to fall in love and live here for good, a walking tour is a great way to get to know the city,

says Eve Hyman, in an Interview with Alan Patrick for the website, Argentinastravel.com. Alan is a blogger, English expat, who offers walking tours of Buenos Aires. I had read Alan’s blog, Buenos Tours prior to going to Buenos Aires back in March 08 and found it fun and informative. I never was able to take one of his tours since we were on such a whirlrwind tango schedule for ten days at CITA 2008. But because I read his posts I felt like I knew where I wanted to go when we did have a little time.
