Anticipating Company

Lighting good-smelling candles in the living room and the bathroom, Clipping a rose from the garden for a vase in the bathroom, Putting a bread mix in the machine timed for guests' arrival to make the whole house smell good, Sweeping leaves from the patio, Giving doggies breath mints and bones for the few days preceding visit, Trimming dog nails extra short, Bathing dogs morning of visit, Walking the dogs so they are tired and well-behaved, Stocking the fridge with special drinks, Visiting the day-old bread store for a coffee cake for morning, Cooking a quiche to be waiting when we need an unplanned meal at home....

What special arrangements or accomodations do you make for important visitors? Tell me about it in a comment below.
