{ What I plan on reading....or, some of it }

January 7, 2018

I was puttering around the house today and when I came to dusting my bookshelves, I realized that I need to give it a quick organizing.

I get tons of books for review, and my shelves are slowly filling up again with books and more books that need to be read and review in the next 2 months.

After a bit of shifting here and there, moving the read ones to the back and the ones that have yet to be read to the front, I decided to show you what is on my shelf at the moment.

I always enjoy seeing the books that others are reading, I guess it's my on going obsession with books of any kind and libraries.

These are mainly my own books that I still need to read.  Some were picked up at book sales, actually most of them were picked up at a huge book sale at our local university last year.  Others were purchased on Amazon, some were gifted and so on.

And this is the book I mentioned yesterday, the one that my husband picked up for me.  I'm really looking forward to reading through it and learning more about knitting.

My Sunday was spent puttering around, doing laundry and other house chores.  Now I know I could wait until tomorrow and do them all, and just enjoy my weekend, but I don't ever see myself as really having a weekend off being that I'm a homemaker and every day is just like the others.

Whatever I did today, I won't have to do tomorrow and whatever I didn't do today, can be done in the morning, so either way it doesn't make much of a difference.

We enjoyed a big brunch consisting of country fried potatoes, bacon, eggs, biscuits and gravy, and it really did fill us for the whole day.  Dinner time no one was hungry and I didn't have to make dinner.

You know it's quite weird at times because for 20 years I've been cooking dinner every single night and now that I some times don't have to do it, I find myself struggling to go with the flow.  I think it's all just habit.

I'm off to watch My Cousin Rachel and start a new Elements Blanket using my own usual colors.  I'll be back in the morning with another Happy Homemaker Monday.

Before I leave though, I would love to know what is on your reading list this year.  I'm always looking for new books to read and you guys usually have some of the best suggestions, so let me know down below what you're reading, what you're planning to read and so on.

  1. You have so many of my favorite authors on your shelves! I think - no, I KNOW - I have more books than I could possibly read in a lifetime (or two). I need to stop binge watching and start binge reading!
