Lazy Sunday Thoughts: Slow Reading Week

Pin It

Aw, Sunday! Here I am in my favorite chair eating a bowl of oatmeal, having my coffee and reading Jane Eyre. That's luxury. It's a beautiful sunny but cold day, this last day of winter. I hope spring hurries up and gets here soon. At least all the snow is gone now.

March Break is over and the girl will be back in school tomorrow. Back to our regularly scheduled programming. This past week I spent a lot of time entertaining her. While many families head to Florida or Mexico for a week of R&R, we're not so fortunate. Instead, we must make due with any entertainments we can find locally. That's not to say we don't have many, we just have to look for them. And sometimes endure the chill of March breezes to do so. So we made our own fun going to movies, crafting and visiting the local parks. Not bad. I remind my daughter that I spent all my March Breaks sitting in my bedroom so she's pretty lucky.

That said, I did not get much reading done even though I had several books going at once. I'm continuing with Jane Eyre, The French Lieutenant's Woman and Affinity (for Andi's readalong) but have tossed a couple of others after a couple of pages. Luckily they were library books.

I also picked up a couple of crochet books from the library and started a project. That has my attention too. Sometimes I like doing something other than reading. I'll probably end up posting my thoughts on those books here though.

Remember I have a giveaway for India Black going on right now. Check it out!

Anyway what have you been up to?

  2. I finished Jane Eyre last night...it's one of the more readable classics that I've read lately! And then I started Affinity. We seem to be on the same book wavelength these days.

  3. I really want to reread Jane Eyre after all of your posts about it. What a favorite book of mine!
