A Retreat, anyone?
What is a beautiful place like this if not to be shared with others.
I've thought a lot about that very thing lately.
Instead of a new chapter of my life I am
starting a new book.
Just like authors, there comes a time when it's
time to just end one book and begin another
in the continuation of the first.
I sit yesterday by my little piece of Bayou Jacob,
watching the sun go down, eating a bowl
of watermelon and journaling and I think,
I want to share this with many.
I walk the cemented pathways of what
is roads for golf carts by day, and I listen to
the crickets and frogs, I feel the cool breeze
as I walk over small wooden bridges and I think,
I want to share this.
I want this home to be a retreat for those HOBL and I
love, friends and family.
I want to entertain those who come to visit
by renewing my love of cooking and baking.
Anna and Dana came last weekend but unfortunately
I got sick and they had to leave early Sunday.
Next Thursday, Tiffy and my beloved god child, Tedi
are coming from Thursday to Sunday.
I can't wait to have them here.
I want us all to relax with no set agenda.
To enjoy all this place has to offer.
The walking paths, the swimming pool,
the things we will cook and bake together.
They will be the second visitors of many.
Everyone, call and make your "reservations"
The charge is... your relaxation.
The besties, Laurie and Ann and "the girls"
are coming for the day next weekend
and Laurie and "the girls" are coming for a long weekend
soon also. Oh, these visits are getting me excited
and I believe, even HOBL, who loves talking to
a bunch of ladies, is looking forward to company.
We have the space and what is all of this peace if not
to be shared. Yes, HOBL and I love our time just us
but we also love visitors.
Next Tuesday afternoon I will be entertaining KD's family
here in Plaq. who all are anxious to see the house.
Soon I will be planning the same get togethers with
my TES friends and also planning a
sister/niece/Hugh pajama party!
Oh I am loving the excitement!
