Hello my lovelies!
Sct Hans Aften. Solstice. Midsummer. Phase 5 Eve!!!
As well as eveing up midsummer, last Friday was Phase 5 Eve of Lockdown Exit. Yes, that last one sounds a convoluted phrasing of an event, a thing, but it was even more reason to celebrate. And I marked the double event with a fun evening in the garden with the neighbours.
Don’t you just love the simplicity of slipping on a summer dress, no faffing about with does this go with that? Instant reward. Instantly changed the mood.
A pretty blue and white toile de jouey sundress seemed the perfect one-and-done outfit after a day of tree shopping and gardening.
And setting out nibbles for the evening had a slight feeling of “newness”, like this was the first time I’d invited friends around, the first time I’d entertained.
It is said that 30 days of doing something creates a habit. We’ve had three months of creating a new habit of wariness, of self-isolation, social distancing, sanitizer and masks. THAT has definitely embedded a new habit. So venturing out after Friday into a world without caution and fear makes me feel somehow trepidatious.
It all feels a bit unreal out there, like I’ve been sent out without my armour, without my safety net, but getting out there and supporting local business as best we can is important for the economy and perhaps for our well-being so onwards and upwards eh.
Please drop me a comment on how things are where you are right now.
A la perchoine,
