My Brasilian guest, has gone away for the weekend with some of his college friends. These young women and men will be partying on Florida’s east coast.

This morning (January 16th) I said to him, “this will be a welcome mid-term break for both of us”. (He has been here since December 17th)

He is a first class house guest, and I have no complaints. But I am glad for some time alone, and he will be glad to be with his peers as they “party”.

I am relishing the solitude. I decided not to join my other pals at bowling so that I could indulge my “Garboesque” mood.

I did a wee bit of shopping to get some urgently needed new bed sheets. They were on sale at Target for $13.98 - bottom fitted sheet, top sheet, and two pillow cases.

I also laid in some stocks of pickled crispy asparagus. That will be good for nibbling tomorrow before lunch here with my guests; James, Orlando and Ben. I’ve already made a hearty and spicy Black Bean Soup, so lunch will be simple indeed.

This balance between activity and solitude is “right up my alley”. I am fortunate indeed to be able to indulge in this pattern and way of life.
