I have a bit of a ritual when it comes to receiving the latest issues of my favorite catalogs or magazines.
I never look at them right away. Oh sure, I might allow myself a quick glance through. But rarely does the mail come to our house at a time with things are calm and relaxed. Frankly, sometimes I wonder if those times are just urban legends. 😉
I want to savor that new catalog or magazine. I want to peruse it at my leisure.
Preferably without anyone asking me for a snack.
