One can always curl up with a good book on a rainy afternoon, or check out the linen closet, all those tablecloth and napkins you have not used for years. Think about ways to use them. The best way to use them is as intended, on the table. Set a classy table have it ready for the next day. Don’t forget to use your best dishes or china and silver. When you wash them after your meal just reset the table for next day. And if that makes you nervous about something getting on the dinnerware turn plates face down and wrap silver in napkins.
