This past Sunday it was in the upper 40’s. I was in and outside all day. Beautiful after the long cold winter. It took everything in me not to go outside sit in a chair and read. It was still just a bit cold for that, especially because there was still several inches of snow on the ground.
What is it about the weather that effects our mood about reading. I would think warmer temps would make me want to work in my garden or something like that, but nope reading, that is what my soul longed for.
That is why I love reading so much, it is good for my soul. I can tell when I have had to cut back on my reading time, my stress level is usually higher and I never seem to be able to relax. I was asked one time while I was reading how I could read at such a time. I remembered thinking, what else would you rather I do, pace the floor?
Because reading is like water to my soul it is the one thing I head to just to unwind and relax. Thankfully I will be able to do that outside soon.
