Today, my homestay went home. I have had homestays, mostly Chinese, on and off for the past 4 years as a means of bringing in extra money. Many were teenagers; some were older. Some were a pain, and some were delightful. I have decided that there will be no more of them, so now I have the house to myself again, which I enjoy. However, it's time to tighten the belt.
When there's not much money, you have to take your pleasure where you can find it, and that is in small things. A beautiful morning, a lovely garden, dyeing wool while the dogs sleep peacefully.
