Night time is the right time for my reading. During the week, after the menagerie is in bed, I sit on my patio with either a great cup of tea or nice glass of wine and dig into my read of the day. It’s so peaceful… the twins are in bed, Claire is in her crate, Tori is at my feet, the kitties are playing with furry mouse toy on the wood floor, the fish tanks have the midnight lights on, and I enjoy the slight ocean breezes… or marine fog (depending upon the night).
I have been through many life changes in the past 4 months. One drastic thing that has changed about me is that I watch MUCH less television and read four times more than I read before. It’s changing the way that I relax and the way that I think. I like this change in myself. And… I can’t wait to blog about the book that I read and I must do it immediately after I finish the book so that my emotions about the book are very fresh in my mind. Who is this girl? Me?
This week, I am going through books on the bookshelf that I haven’t gotten around to because they weren’t peaking my interest as much as others. This week, I am completing The Amateur Marriage by Anne Tyler. Truthfully, I now wish that I hadn’t put it off. I am really enjoying it, much more so than Back When We Were Grown Ups. In any event, I only have approximately 30 pages left to finish the book and I’m hoping to actually do it this afternoon and not wait for the evening read. Yeah… then it’s blog time!
I am so tired from a 40th Birthday party last night and may end up reading the remainder of the book in bed this afternoon. I’m glad to join The Sunday Salon this week.
