Summer is a time for outdoor activities and indoor visiting. To be well-prepared for seasonal entertaining, imagine some scenarios ahead of time. Are any friends or relatives from out of town expected? If so, plan a get-together rather than risk impromptu visits when time, food offerings, or even your stress level aren't optimum. Will there be any birthdays or anniversaries that need to be be celebrated? Plan for them and the attendant guests that might visit. Here on Cape Cod, unexpected drop-ins happen often. Those who've moved away return unannounced to see old friends and neighbors. Plan for that as well. More to follow.
