restoration

When there is no more sage or parsley in the refrigerator. When there are no more clean desert plates. When all of the ham is in a Ziploc. When the extra lemon squares have been sprinkled with fresh confectioner’s sugar and neatly arranged into twine wrapped waxed paper packages for the guest’s departures. When the tablecloth and napkins have been laundered. When the mental notes have been made of where the boxes are in the attic so the decorations can be taken down and put away as soon as they can be but not today because that would make one appear hasty and grinch-like. When the throat is sore and the energy and excitement have all been depleted, there is quiet, solitude, and respite. These things too must be taken seriously.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season.
Peace and Love,
AM
