Merry wandered through the mansion, fluffing a pillow here, fixing a vase there, arranging flowers till they were just so. She moved from room to room, making sure everything was just right. She figured guests would show up eventually, and when they did, it had to be perfect. After all, this was the first time she had opened her place up to guests in a long, long time. There was no real staff to attend to the guests here, but she figured the visitors that wandered in would figure it out. After all, they were pretty self sufficient in these parts anyway.
When she had gone through every room, twice, she knew it was ready. She really didn't have to do anything more, but wait. Grabbing a cold glass of raspberry ice tea, she debated adding vodka, decided to skip it for now and headed out to the deck. Glancing out across the expansive lawn, she knew the sun was just about to slip away for the day. Since it was one of her favorite things to do, she flopped into a large cushioned chair, pulled her legs up beneath her and settled in to watch. Curious to see who would show up.
Welcome! This is Merry's place! Stop by for a drink, a snack, or just to hang out.
