I love having a varied life where I do many different things, because the fact is, I crave routine. That's right, it's the various and sundry things in life that make my regular routine special. Tomorrow I will have a plain old regular day. I don't have to come down off the hill, so I have plenty of time to cook, to harvest, to clean and to organize around here. I can put the laundry away that's been sitting in the basket for two days. I can de-clutter the kitchen counters. I can sweep the patio.
It's the kind of day I love most, but the kind of day that quickly becomes boring or tedious if I get too many of them in a row.
That's why errand days in town, relatives and friends visiting, a little winery work on the weekends and days at the beach are so important. Because once they're done, the blessed routine resumes, and I see it with new eyes, and appreciate it, each and every time.
