Can you believe it’s already the 4th day of Halloween? Yes, I meant that.
I wish I had some cool and cozy places to read! I feel like really the only places that I do read are at home, but that isn’t always true, I guess. I’ll figure it out.
I have started sitting down in my backyard with my dogs when I get home and I rest my feet up on the bench that my husband made, let them run around and relax with me while I try to get some reading in. And take some pictures for the ‘gram of course. Sometimes I don’t though, because having this peace and quiet – for the most part, the dogs still have the zoomies whenever I get home – just feels so great and helps me recenter myself and feel better after the long day. It’s a nice break before I go back to work for my second job.
There’s this park a few minutes away from my house called Sleepy Hole Park. In this photo you can see there’s like this lake, and I usually sit on the bench right in front of it and soak in the sun and lay down on the bench and read until I get super hot. But it feels so good! I park my car right next to the bench so I don’t have to walk too far, and just listen to the water and relax. Sometimes I go there just to sit too. I’m not one that usually goes out into nature very often, but this is one place that’s close to home that I enjoy.
Well we don’t have that specific couch anymore since we moved, but I always curl up on the couch with a book and I have at least one dog next to me. Sometimes all four of them will try to squeeze up next to me and lay down while I read. Sometimes, I’ll read out loud to them and they’ll lay down and listen for as long as they can stay awake. It’s the cutest thing in the whole world and I wouldn’t change it for a thing.
You can’t really tell from this picture but my absolute favorite place to read is my bed. I love laying down right before bed, or even before I go to work for the night, possibly cuddling with one or more of my dogs, and getting some chapters in for the night.
I guess this post is low key saying you should follow my instagram because I’m trying to be aesthetically pleasing but it’s not happening lol.
