Holidays or “holy days” are days on which we choose to celebrate something sacred to us. Celebrations can range from large to small, casual to formal, but they all require a certain amount of work and forethought in order to be truly enjoyable. Of course, a superior organized mind was called for when planning a large Easter brunch buffet.
I must say, it seems to have gone off without a hitch. Father and Mr. Verne had everything prepared properly and just in time for the first of our ninety-six guests to arrive. Didi was as gracious a host as ever there was and everyone seemed to leave utterly satisfied.
Brunch was definitely the apex of the weekend, from which we all quickly descended into blessed naptime…except mother. She tells me she waited up until all our guests were checked in for the evening. But I’ve put the proverbial cart before the horse I fear.
Saturday we hosted an egg hunt for the community. This was an inspired idea if I do say so myself. Some of our staff’s children came, some customers we knew and some came right off the sidewalk! It was a great way to get to know some new people.
Now another weekend is nearly upon us and the inn will be almost full again tonight. Days like this almost have the feeling of a calm before a storm. It is a good time to pause and reflect on the week, preparing oneself for the days to come.
