I have a secret bookcase in the barn.
When I want to read something I head down to the barn, usually with company.
Upon entering the man-cave of a barn, I make my way to the light switch. I step over and around hoses, milk cans, paint buckets, hockey equipment, motorcycle parts, light fixtures… you name it we probably have it.
Then I head through the challenging maze that is hubby and his sons’ domain.
I take a right at the ladder, making sure NOT to walk under it.
Watching my step, I make note of all the dangerous things on the floor (to remind hubby how many accidents are just waiting to happen) and head to the blue tarp that houses my secret bookcase.
I pull back the tarp to reveal my treasure trove of adventures waiting to be enjoyed.
I turn on my
flashlight Assistive Light and take a moment to greet my old friends.
I never feel lonely if I’ve got a book – they’re like old friends. Even if you’re not reading them over and over again, you know they are there. And they’re part of your history. They sort of tell a story about your journey through life.Emilia Fox
When I’ve chosen a book, or gotten the next in the series I’m reading, I close the tarp and head back through the haphazard barn (or is that hazardous 😉 ).
And head back up to the house, usually with company.
After the journey to my secret bookcase I READ! Usually with company.
It has taken me a few months of being retired to feel guiltless when reading a novel. Silly me! How can I say no to something that gives me such joy? Big happy sigh. Please share with us what YOU like to read, and if you have your own secret bookcase, or special place to read (or company!).
As always I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day.
You may have noticed this is my 50th Random Moments of Delight post. After this one I’m going to stop counting… after all, I probably have 50 random moments of delight each week and could never share them all! I don’t need to count my posts to tally how many I’ve written anymore, it’s time for countless delights.
Would you like to share a random delight? You can use the linky below or simply put a link to your post in a comment. This party lasts all week, and is about sharing special moments with each other whatever form they take (more info here).
