Back to the Basics

No matter who your company is. No matter how much you love having them in your house, want them there (because you invited them), enjoy the conversation and the fun. No matter. Having company still breaks up your normal routine. It just does. And it’s OK. I like having my normal routine broken for people I love and enjoy being with and sharing our deck, our town and our beautiful lake and forest. 

And once they leave, it is time to get back to our basics, the way we live our day to day lives. Monday: up and dressed for gym. Dishwasher unloaded. Trash gathered to go out. Dog fed. Breakfast eaten. Laundry separated and ready to go once I am home from gym. Letters to grands written and ready to mail. Two packages ready to send to two of those friends who visited and left things behind. Back to the basics and grateful for it all. ~ the blessings of basics, may you have a lot of them.
