Spring Reading

AH! Spring time. The time of year when you are wishing more then anything the warmth would permanently stay. Instead, Mother Nature teases us with a few nice days here and there and then the rest are those cold heartless days, reminding us that we still live in Utah and that Spring won't get here till about mid May.

These spring days I have been reading quite a bit while Oliver has been napping and it has been so nice to have that "me" time. I wish that I could say that this is me in the picture below, but sadly, it's not.

Instead, this is the way my reading time has been...

Quiet, without the sound of the noisy chirping birds and kids playing outside. Dull, only using the depressing unnatural light. And stale, with no fresh spring air to deeply breath in.

Hopefully soon spring will really be here to stay and my reading time will then be spent outside on the grass!

At least you have a cute polka dot pillow to be comfy with while you read :-D

is that the secret life of bees? I just started the lovely bones. I liked your book review of the elephant book, keep them coming!

I second that! I can't wait to take a book out and lay out reading it while my kids play in the pool! You will have to come join me!

I agree-I love reading outside while the kids play. Hope you like the Secret Life of Bees-it's a pretty good read. -B
