This morning it’s still pretty cold outside and as I hang by the fire reading, I’m left to wonder how much reading loss I’ll experience this summer. Let’s face it, most people spend more time outside in the summer, right? There are outdoor activities like hiking, gardening, cook-outs, and swimming that remind me of why I welcome summer.
I can hear the chickadees and woodpeckers outside and very active this morning. I love nature, but this year I’m sort of dreading summer. I’m thinking about how much I read this past winter and how I’ll be reading much less this summer.
One of the major time consuming activities for me in the summer is gardening. Here’s a picture of last spring’s greenhouse…
So, this year I’m thinking about making a reading schedule. Has anyone ever done that? I thought I’d make a list of the books I want to read, and set dates. I thought it would be a good idea to add in a set amount of pages or chapters per day.
What do you think? Do you read much less in the summer and what activities are you looking forward to?
