It’s not a jaw-dropping first experience albeit was a much needed break. I’ve been pretty busy of late with work, commuting, study, life, etc. and it seemed like forever since I simply camped out and read a book – actually completing it – for an entire afternoon.
This morning, we headed out to run a couple of errands on Long Island. Out by Oyster Bay and Muttontown, the scenery and homes are gorgeous. It’s a wonderful experience to drive through the countryside there.
Returning home, we had a quick lunch, then decided to just rest. After a brief nap, I got up, made some coffee, grabbed my book and nestled in on the couch amongst the cushions.
It felt wonderful to just relax into my book and read uninterrupted for a few hours. Reading is one of my favorite pastimes and I hadn’t realize how much I missed doing it until I got to spend time on it today.
I loved the feeling and commit to doing it again soon. And, regularly ongoing. If you call and I don’t pick up the phone, I probably have my nose in a good book.
