Winston And Eleanor

The recent PBS series about the Roosevelt family tossed out a telling comment about housekeeping. Mrs. FDR grumbled about Winston Churchill coming to stay on  notice nearly too short for her to arrange and furnish a guest room to serve his convenience.

Hospitality of state is not an issue for me, but the state of hospitality is always a consideration. It’s relaxing to found the interior on simple essentials rather than to encrust it with layers of fixed amenities and visual enrichment. I enjoy managing a facility that’s flexible and easy to clean.
