When getting ready for the next season of (un)expected events I used to wait until “I have the time” or “when things are closer” and than had to live with improvised solutions.
What changed my attitude was when a friend shared how his family prepares for the annual isolation from the rest of the World.
As the time approaches on the calendar each family member gets one item of decadent food with every shopping trip, which goes straight to the storage.
Once they are cut off they go through their collection of goodies and enjoy their special treats.
And this also gave me the insight for
“Preparation is not constant, yet continuos.”
