What is it...

..about cold winter days and books? This sight is so comforting to me.

My favorite spot in my home is this window seat, especially when it is raining and cold outside. I just love to curl up right here and read.

These are the shelves that face the window seat. Normally they are filled with books...but sometimes I use them to display my Christmas decor.

I have always wanted a window seat. I love the idea of curling up there with a good book or a nice view.
Hugs, Susan

My brother and his family use to do endurance ridding. He won a 50 mile run. They don't have too much time anymore. They have a kennel and they board dogs. They have around 45 boarders. I painted the kennel.You can see it www.slodeakennel.com ....Kathy

Me too... I love reading and just enjoying a beautiful garden book during cold dreary winter days.... it's been snowing here lately most every day, so you know what I'm doing on my free time.... ;)

Have a lovely day, Julie...
