Here ye here ye here ye!
The Chateau 7 Guesthouse is officially open!
An old friend is arriving for a quick two-day visit this morning. I am very excited to host an out-of-town visitor, something I haven't done for a long time. I could have had guests at the house on Tennessee Avenue, but it would have been inconvenient for my ex housemates, so I erred on the side of good manners. Domestic harmony requires some sacrifices, you know?
The chateau is certainly not luxurious, nor will there be anything akin to actual privacy for visitors (who must sleep in the living room since this is a three room apartment). Luckily for me, Linda (my first visitor) and I met at witch camp, an experience that has nothing to do with formality. We've known each other a long time, through thick and thin. I initiated her as well so basically there are no secrets between us. She is the perfect first overnight visitor to the chateau.
The weather is supposed to be good - hot but not too humid - so I expect we'll spend a lot of time out in the city, walking around. More than that I look forward to cooking dinner, sitting around afterwards here in the living room on the comfortable upholstery, talking, sharing stories, drinking wine, hanging out. I also look forward to a couple of lazy mornings, drinking coffee, letting our hair stay rumpled for awhile.
I'm not likely to see a lot of the blog realm while she is here, though I'll pop in and out of the internets, no doubt. See y'all on the flip side.
