That sums up the next few days!! It was a gorgeous breezy night, one that made me happy to live here and want to laugh at myself. Ok, maybe it was the spilling of my Dunkin Doughnuts cappuccino blast on my t-shirt right before walking into Wal-Mart that made me want to laugh at myself. In fact, I think a few chuckles escaped as I browsed the store, slightly hunched over. I fit in just fine.
I had so many eloquent thoughts about the joy of living as I walked across the parking lot from Wal-Mart to Publix, but the breeze must have blown them out of my head. Actually, it has more to do with the fact that we are playing bed and breakfast the next few days to a cousin and her girlfriends. I’m so happy she called and feels welcome enough to ask if they can camp out here. We love having her and her friends around. The kids love them too. It makes me feel like I’m doing something right when people feel free to ask if they can come and spend the night or 14. I never considered myself that good of a hostess. Actually, I’m not. I still forget to put out ice and salad dressing EVERY SINGLE time I have people over to eat. Nevertheless, it was our dream when we moved here that we would be a stopping place for friends and family who wanted to visit. So far, we have been, and God even blessed us with an extra room that has a little extra privacy for those long-term visitors. Unfortunately the bathroom is on the other side of the house, but oh well!
That being said, I need to go check the sheets in the guest room and sweep up any dead bugs. This is Florida you know!
