Picnic for Two
One of the great luxuries of happy idleness is the sit-down lunch at home. We spent much of last week having our deck substantially rebuilt. While it is not completely complete (I am also advocating not having to finish everything we start...) it is close enough to done that we set up our table in the remarkable May sunshine and ate outdoors. What a pleasure to bask in the finally-warm sun, look out over the river and enjoy a simple lunch. Next week, my husband embarks full-time on the writerly life - our picnic for two is a foretaste of a shift in lifestyle - one with space to breathe and eat and write. Egg salad al fresco.
