Anticipating summer is a good feeling. Throughout winter and spring I sew little dresses and collect recipes. I envision taking out the white cotton bedspreads and hanging them out until they are crisp like paper. But my favorite thing of all is to collect a big stack of books…just for summer. I scout used book sales, estate sales, yard sales and the stack slowly grows.
The passage of time is marked by how many books I’ve read. And sadly, I have no more books. Okay, yes, I have plenty more books but no more in this special stack marked “SUMMER 2010”. Now I feel all withered and curled up like a dead leaf (isn’t that so dramatic?).
Are you wondering what my children do while I read books all day? Me too.
Actually I make them read books, too. We put it on our list (thanks, Meg )
Lonesome Dove would have to be my pick to recommend, the others were eeh (insert shrugging shoulders). But I might not be in the mood to recommend anything as my children and their peeps are in the next room being very loud. Shall I go in and tell them children should be seen and not heard like Ma Ingalls tells her kids?
Have a nice evening, friends!
