Day 3135: Having people over

For the first time since the world got Covid-19 (including me, in March 2020), we’re having people over today.

Yesterday, Michael brought the table and chairs up from the basement and put them out on the deck he recently redid.

I’m nervous and happy at the same time. I feel very out of practice.

I wonder if any of my images for the day will help me prepare for having people over.

The people I’m having over today love the Daily Bitch, and this is the first time they’ll be seeing her in person. (She’s also great on ZOOM.)

This is what I find on YouTube when I search for “having people over.”


This showed up, too:

What are your thoughts and feelings about having people over?

As always, I’m grateful to be having you over here, now.

  1. I’m excited for you! enjoy every minute and soak it up –

  2. Happy August, Ann. Your deck looks extremely welcoming. Please give my congratulations to Michael for his fine refinishing job!

  3. We had people over for the first time last weekend for Kate and Ken’s birthdays. It was lovely weather so everyone could be on the porch or inside the house, almost like old times:-)

  4. Hope you have a great time and haven’t forgotten how to do it!

    Don’t be nervous, Ann. Everything falls into place when in good company. Enjoy it.

  6. I hope you enjoy having people over, but what will you be having them over?

  7. “Go oft to the house of thy friend, for weeds choke the unused path.”
    ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

  8. I hope you time with friends was absolutely wonderful. We are all a little out of practice! Every time I do something that was once routine, and hasn’t been for a while, I feel a surge of anxiety mixed with delight. It’s all new!
