Confession time. At the risk of sounding anti-social(and maybe I am?), I really enjoy spending holidays alone. And yes, some of it probably has to do with food, but definitely not all.
Today, Easter, I slept late (ahhhh), drank a lot of yummy coffee, ran errands and then bought a book with a gift certificate. A FREE BOOK – already the day is perfect!
Now, I am tidying up the apartment, followed by a bubble bath and the new book. I might meet up with a few friends later, but if I don’t, I get to stay home with my book and Rebecca, my beloved cat. 🙂
It was a busy week (including yesterday)and next week is going to be even busier, after work and on the weekend. So, today feels like a true gift.
Re; food. I can truly go anywhere and be okay with food. I do it all the time. If I am at a big food holiday, I show up with grace and have a nice time. However, if you ask me my preference – it’s not my favorite. So much emphasis on food and eating can become dreary. If i have a choice, I’d rather not.
I’ve come to peace with this. The important part for me is that I can and will go. I will engage with the company, enjoy myself and eat comfortably. As long as I am willing when asked, I’m okay with my preference.
So, for right now, I’m off to make a salad. I think I’ll take my book and lunch outside and sit in the sun. Or, I might stay inside, because Rebecca is being soo cute an snuggley.
I love holidays!!!!
