Well, folks, it's almost time to go back to school after this long winter's nap! We have finally put all the Christmas decorations away. Persie and Nimmie are finally playing together and are enjoying their new cat tree. And as for me, well, I joined the YMCA and am thoroughly enjoying working out. I've also been doing quite a bit of reading. It makes me feel good, reading does. It gives one a magical feeling of being connected to a story. Very few stories grip me nowadays, but I've found two that are really wonderful right now. One is The Round of a Country Year, by David Kline. That one is for school, for our whole farm planning class. (Now, book reviews are coming, so I'm not going to go into what they are about just yet.) The second is Braiding Sweetgrass, by Robin Wall Kimmerer. That one really makes me think (y'all will soon get to hear my thoughts on it!) Reading hes been one of those off and on things for me since I got my smart phone. Smartphones tend to ruin things in my opinion. The old way of life was filled with reading, writing, talking to your family--but just last night even, I looked up from my phone at my mom who was looking at her phone. It made me miss our music appreciation nights where we would put on music, turn down the lights, and dance. But thank god for reading. Reading makes me remember the old days. There's nothing better than reading in a nice warm bath, filled with lavender.
