We have had a hectic
So it's Friday and I simply refuse to cook tonight. I would much rather gather us up on the family bed, pop in Harry Potter (since we're proper parents and are educating Thing 1 on the finer points of magic), and let everyone nibble on this and that....healthy this and that, of course. And everyone's happy; even Thing 2 nibbles on crackers and tries tidbits of soft fruits.
And that's all there is to it, really. It's a picnic minus the ants. Cheeses, fruit slices, peanut butter, pepperoni, crackers, carrots, cucumbers, tomato slices....basically nothing more than odds and ends from the kitchen. The point being that it's more important that we spend time together than that we spend money or energy on the details.
No kids? Grab your Honey and add a bottle of wine. True love revels in the simplest of pleasures. Enjoy the company and be human for a bit of time; the rest of the world can wait for a moment but relationships are the stuff of life.
