I had a great open house this afternoon with lots of visitors - several of whom expressed interest in the house. I am hopeful that this house will not stay on the market for long. The only flies in the proverbial ointment were that I didn't have time to eat lunch before my open house and the heat in my open house - empty of all furniture - didn't work.
Fortunately I had crackers in the back of my car - for just those occasions when there is no time to actually eat. Unfortunately, I didn't have a space heater in the back of my car - and I would have traded those crackers for a space heater or some understanding of what was wrong with the furnace! BRRR.
I turned on the oven and once it was heated, I kept opening the door to warm my hands whenever there was no one in the house but me!
Since there was no furniture in the house, it didn't matter that I had to stand in front of the oven in the kitchen! I didn't have anywhere else to sit!
Happily, there was a pretty constant stream of visitors so I didn't focus on how cold I was or how hungry. Actually, it was pretty comical and I was in no danger of permanent frost bite or hunger pains!
Once it was four o'clock, I was out of there and joyfully on my way home.
Once I was in the car, and the heat was glating, I started thinking about how hungry I was. Then I remembered that Duck Donuts was on the way home. Duck Donuts started in North Carolina - I assume on the outer banks in Duck, NC. The thing that makes Duck Donuts so special is that you design and order your donut -which is only cooked once it is ordered - and then topped with your specific choices. I had a warm freshly cooked cake donut with maple frosting and bacon sprinkles. After all - I was cold - and - hungry. That donut took the place of the breakfast I didn't really get and the lunch I had skipped. It was warm - hot even. It was delicious.
When you think about your favorite food, what is your favorite? Mine is definitely donuts. I am a fan of dense donuts like Dunkin Donuts rather than Krispy Kreme - and I love the warm freshly cooked Duck Donuts - made to order and every bite delicious!
