|A Cottage by the Sea||
While I was home and waiting for the family of grandkids to arrive, I decided to review my 3S’s. I knew that for 24 hours it wouldn’t be particularly silent nor would I have much solitude, but I figured that I could keep it simple. Take meals, for example. As any woman knows, when people come for a lunch some automatic pilot snaps on inside of us and we immediately switch into complexity mode; by the time we’ve made too many sandwiches, we are also into resentment mode—“Yes, mayo…no mayo.. just a tad of mayo, please,” they say. And then they leave half the sandwich. So I decided to put out bread, cheese, salami, roast beef, lettuce, broccoli, red peppers, and of course mayo. It worked beautifully, generating zero stress for anyone. But best of all, I wasn’t even tempted to suggest, however nicely as only a grandmother can, “How about finishing that sandwich I made for you?”
