Some Of My Books

To adore books seems to be a good hobby,

Frequented book hunts and gatherings,

Tireless reading, journaling, blogging and more…

Sunday is about the only day I get to enjoy some of my books.

My gratitude abounds!



Drinking coffee and waiting for final spin…

Multitasking, cooking chicken legs and doing dish while laundry drys.

Need to be at moms by ten, two hour project.

On treadmill till then, but going for wine and pizza at moms.

Back by two to prepare for the week,

Wind down before bed, read and write with no device!

And spicy add on’s like meals, exercise, music, research, blogging and philosophy, etc

Seasonal differences may make routine a little more challenging but everyone needs more time to rest, prepare and enjoy a quieter day.

Slow down and enjoy today.
