I am a reader. I am an avid reader. My local library loves me! I am constantly online, looking through reading lists, checking on my favorite authors, making lists of books to get my library to order for me, and reading. Ha-Ha! I read – a lot. I went to the library on Friday and picked up 7 books waiting for me. I have already read 4 of them and it is only Wednesday. There are more books waiting for me at the library! It has become our Saturday morning errand – dropping books off and picking books up, at the local library. Last Friday I actually had the car, so I was able to go to the library a day early; it totally messed up our Saturday! Ha-Ha!
My husband and I are becoming such old fuddy-duddies that we will go to bed NO LATER than 9:00pm, so we can lay in bed and read until at least 10:00pm every night. And I mean EVERY night! We hate being out late because we miss reading time. And on rainy or snowy weekends, we cuddle up with our blankets on the couch or recliner and read. We have chosen to watch less TV and read more. Our youngest son, aged 15, thinks we’re a little nuts. He stays up longer than us, but comes into our room, chatting away about various things until he finally settles into bed himself. It has become such a part of our lives, and helped our lives to be more quiet and still, that I have not felt like posting on my blog. I would rather be reading.
And so, for now, I will blog when the mood strikes me. It seems to me that so much of what I share somehow strikes an angry cord in people (not sure why they bother reading my blog if I do that to them) and I really don’t have all that much of an audience, so I think I will lay aside this blog for a bit. Perhaps when I get back into it, I will have something important or worthwhile to share.
In the meantime, I will work on keeping our plants alive this summer and eating some home-grown fruits and vegetables, and I will work on my “goodreads” list, my library list and I am also investigating e-readers. Trust me, as a die-hard book lover, that is saying something. But I realize how much easier my library trips would be if I could do it all online. Then we might just have to re-arrange our Saturday mornings!
Blessings, all. Happy Summer!
