Afternoon tea

I had a lovely afternoon tea at a friend from jr high and high school's home. Tea, homemade scones, little sandwiches...the works. It was lovely, and it reminded me again of something that I've been convicted of lately.

You see, I don't have people into my home. I just don't. And I've known for years that I needed to cultivate this skill, but I avoid it. Others have invited us to their places, but we RARELY reciprocate. Its not at all that we don't like these people...its mainly that I just feel stressed by my messy house and small space. The thing is...I do fine when I do have people over. So, its time to stop being lazy.

Just a thought to ease you into it. :) It's probably worth what you pay for it. ;)

Before my difficult pregnancy, we had people over for Sunday Evening Desserts. I generally try to have my house straightened for Sunday anyway so it can truly be a day of rest (sometimes difficult with 4 kids). I find that if I just do dessert though, it can be a fairly quick visit (an hour or so) and I don't have to worry about dinner and all the dishes and clean up afterward (I try to use disposable dishware) This also lends to having a variety of people over. :)
