We desire to live a simple life.
Sometimes I question how blogging about living simply fits into the simple equation.
Obviously, it takes time in front of a computer to blog, which seems quite the opposite of simple. But, I love sharing snapshots of our simple life and connecting with like minded readers so I keep on writing.
It’s been nearly 2 weeks since I last wrote due to sickness (I really had no desire to write while miserably congested), two boys who keep me busy (I still cannot get them into a regular nap routine) and because I’ve been spending every spare alone moment the past week reading (I love, love, love to read!)
Even though this space has been quiet, my life has been far from quiet. We’ve been enjoying our days in spite of congestion and rain!
We spent some of our Christmas money on new picture books – Our Animal Friends at Maple Hill Farm, HarperCollins Treasury of Picture Book Classics: A Child’s First Collection, Mike Mulligan and More. I love classic children’s books and the boys love listening to the stories. We’ve read these stories multiple times already as well as the stack of library books we have. I enjoy time spent reading to my boys.
Dreary days when you’re stuck inside are best spent dressed as a pirate. In our home, even pirates love reading!
We may live simply but not everything is always neat and simple in our home. I love sorting, washing and folding laundry but putting it away is my nemesis. The tops of dressers frequently look like this. I know, all I have to do is take an extra 2 minutes to just put it away!
I’m sure this week will look much the same, lots of reading for all, playing outside on days when the sun is shining and lots of laundry for mama to do! And, I hope to spend a bit more of my alone time in the evenings writing instead of reading so this space isn’t quite so neglected.
