While Elrond lived there, it was said “His house was perfect, whether you liked food, or sleep, or work, or story-telling, or singing, or just sitting and thinking, best, or a pleasant mixture of them all.” – J. R. R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
My beloved and I are on a road trip. We spent three nights, two days with parents a week and a half ago. We arrived at their home again yesterday.
Their friends call it the party house. It’s just right for gatherings from four to twenty-four or maybe more. Help yourself to food and drink. If they know your preferences, the fridge and pantry will be stocked: peanut butter, M&Ms, yogurt, tea, diet coke.
They freely share the password for high speed wifi and offer unlimited access to the washing machine and dryer. Dad is glad to have you play in the wood shop with him. Mom is eager to have you spend time in the quilting room with her.
Much love. Good food. Laughter. Stories. Pinochle (a card game). Sleep.
We are blessed.
