We'll be enjoying the company of son Dan, some of his fellow law students and a few other good friends at the lake house this weekend....We're looking forward to having a house full of bright, interesting and fun filled students....
The thing about the lake house is .... we spend a lot of time in the kitchen....preparing meals and washing dishes....no dishwasher!
But I love it! I love having all these happy, relaxed young people around and contributing to their good time with food and lots of it!
Entertaining up here is still a lot easier then when my great grandmother was the hostess back in the 1930's and 40's....at least we don't have to pump our water and the bathrooms are inside!
Besides... I have lots of my kitchen collectibles up here and get a chance to play and use both my old and new dishes... like these pretty green and white ones from le Comptoire de Famille
...I'm sure I'll have lots of help this weekend...My Mom has already made brownies, a chocolate pie and her famous bark...
Actually this group will be easy....they are all twenty something and totally self sufficient...quick to lend a helping hand... affording me plenty of time for a little R & R of my own!
I hope you all have a happy and relaxed weekend! :) Laura
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
