Other things to note
Coffee and tea are available to the left of the coffee pot. Use the kettle for tea. Two scoops of coffee using a filter from the bottom drawer will make four cups of coffee. Just like you would do in your other house please feel free to use any snacks in the food storage cupboard and anything in the refrigerator/freezer.
Please enjoy Breakfast from provisions on hand. Bread in the freezer, milk, butter, OJ, and Syrup in the fridge. Helen plans on trying to make sure the milk is fresh (but please check and worst case Avondale!). Cereal and condiments in the lower cupboard to the left of the sink. Please use one of the Yoplait/Activa spreads for your cereal.
Our apartment is generally very quiet as we have not been aware of noise from other tenants. We request that you do not smoke in the apartment and we do not allow animals owned by guests. We have no problem with an occasional well trained animal visiting. (Helen has an adorable small dog)
You will observe an array of my food and beverages (fridge, freezer and supply cupboard). You are welcome to use any of these , but they are not included in the price (other than Breakfast) that we set for the rent. So I ask that you make a reasonable estimate of the net cost of anything that you use and leave an envelope with some cash or a check with your perception of the replacement cost.
