Thanks for the reminder. I do a lot of jumping up and running around, don’t I?
Sitting down here for a few minutes to write to you will be good for me.
The café is closed today. Normally Ginny would be here giving it the once-over and there would be banging and clattering and I’d be upstairs sat in a sunny window with my laptop, all by my sweet lonesome and lovin’ it. But this weekend she’s got something on that must be attended to, so I’ve been vacuuming and it’s time to take a nice little break.
This letter may take me all day to write. I keep seeing things I want to do RIGHT NOW and leaping up to do them. They’re small things, but … they add up, and there goes the day! Thank the heavenly stars Ginny wants the work most of the time. She’s a good cook, too, which is even better. Stubblejumpers can keep her busy, pretty much any time she likes.
You should come out and see the new patio! If we get decent weather one of these days, that is. It’s too chilly out there for this chick right now. But later I’ll take a thermos of hot cocoa and dress for winter and lounge on the patio one last time, perhaps, before the snow flies.
Someone at the door.
There often is, though we’re closed weekends. We should start opening more hours; people like a bite to eat on Saturdays too. I don’t suppose you want some part-time work again?
Well, let me get this sent. It’s only a quick hello and a wave, but “like I always say sometimes” (where does that quote come from?), Always leave ‘em wantin’ more.
HEXes and O’s to you,
Hey, you Ms. Blathers, you! I bet you didn’t think I’d answer your letter. And so quick of me, too! (Ha!)
I know what you mean about the days evaporating into the mist of small things. I love the feeling of days just passing like that, even though I suppose most of our neighbours might call it wasting time. I have never been in a country that was having a war, but I do think that the reason we are able to live these normal lives of not-very-exciting details is because we are in a country which is at peace. We drift from task to task in such a peaceful way.
Just thinking about it makes me breathe more deeply. I am grateful for our normal boring lives in Saskatchewan.
What makes you think I haven’t seen the patio? I drove by the other day; I even saw you motoring around as I glanced towards the front window. I didn’t dare come in because you would put me to work, no doubt! The patio is looking good! Just needs some flower pots which I could help you with in the spring.
I’ll give it some thought–the Saturday idea, I mean. I have been pretty busy with my new job, but you know the old saying, “If you need something done, ask a busy person!”
Lots of love,
