It's only me exhaling!
I've managed to get through, what has to be, by all accounts, the busiest six weeks of my life. There were five graduations.........none of them local. There were two bridal showers, a baby shower, a cocktail party, a moving away party, three graduation parties, and a birthday party. Some of them I hosted/co-hosted, and some I simply attended. Some of the events were scheduled for the same weekend, so my husband and I found ourselves going in different directions in order to meet our obligations.........................But, today I'm taking time to smell the roses.
The garden looks lovely, even though I've hardly had time to pot a plant or pop a seed into the ground.
Thank goodness I have good structural plants to carry me through.
I've assembled a nice stack of possible candidates for sharing my afternoon. I know, this is the age of technology and many people prefer to do their reading on line. Not me! I love the smell of paper, the tactile quality of holding a book in my hand, and the feeling of anticipation as I turn the page. Even as a girl, I loved the fact that the long days of summer translated into more time for recreational reading.
I love history, but I also enjoy fiction.............................so, historically based fiction is what I'm drawn to, although not exclusively.
What do you like to read?
I've plumped up the pillow in my old wicker arm chair and placed it in a shady nook.
