I did some summer reading. I have always loved to read but in the past many years I have forsaken books except to have them around me to make things look pretty. Now, however, having been inspired by a certain book list, I have picked them up again. I have decided to start with the ones I have already read. The ones I know that I love.
This is my pile so far. I don't know where I'll keep them when the pile gets much larger as they are going to obstruct my lamp and they may prove to be too much of a burden for my rickety old side table but this will not be a problem for the near future as I do not read that fast.
Which is also the case for my sewing/crafting/crocheting. I'm not that fast. Hence, I have begun to look forward to those cooler, shorter, sometimes stormier days that just make me want to do handicrafts. Yes! It is only mid-August and already I am looking forward to autumn days. I have also been thinking about the holidays. Is that so strange?
I have so many things that I want to make for gifts that it seems I should have started in January. I'm that slow. And I have been known to procrastinate. That is all behind me now because the beginning of the school year is like a new beginning for me also! I'm going to make things happen!
