Can you believe that Papa and Gigi drove here,
all the way from South Dakota?
Just to visit us?!
Some of you remember when I stayed here before the pandemic.
The guest suite on their third floor is so charming.
The first morning, we woke to the sun streaming in
above our bed through this quaint little window.
Of course, Wednesday is Garbage Pick Up Day.
The young men that provide that service, do so
with a smile and friendly wave.
Jack’s Daddy had to work long hours that day,
So Jack and his Papa stayed busy with some yard work.
They trimmed bushes and cleaned out underneath,
preparing for a load of mulch.
Some of us sat out on the patio to
provide encouragement and enjoy the shade.
Most importantly, we make time for play.
According to a proverb recorded in 1659…
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”
Take time off from work,
so you don’t become bored or boring!
Good advice for all of us.
