Enriched, Revived, Restored
Yesterday was Canada Day. While people were cottaging, enjoying Canada Day Celebrations, playing slow pitch in the local tournament, boating and entertaining, I was reading. I reread Trinity and Pillars of the Earth. Both fairly large books which I started early Thursday evening and finished late Friday night (Saturday morning really).
Sean was at a friends house and slept over, Adam was Paintballing and at a friends and husband was rebuilding or repairing his dirt bike. I'm not sure what he was doing, I just heard noise in the garage.
I had no one to feed, no driving to do, no obligations. A wonderful day.
I don't recall mentioning in my earlier post, a few things about me, that when I read I become deeply immersed. Like Nero everything could burn down around me, unnoticed, while my head is buried in a book.
I think that is why my family insist I don't read - because I become anti-social, they say.
I think they are being a bit picky.
