Curling the 60 Blog

Going to the grocery store just isn’t a priority when the fate of a fictional character is hanging in the balance.

And the rain continued today.  Plus, for Southern California, it was pretty chilly at lunch time.  We had n0thing planned f0r today, so I chose to sit on the patio and read my book.  I wrapped myself in an afghan and could only sit out there about 20 minutes before I had to go inside and warm up.

Hot coffee and another blanket, and I was curled up with my book on the couch.  Leslie was making holiday cards and listening to Pandora radio on the Amazon Echo.  Reading, sipping, reading….and before I knew it….napping.

Real Simple magazine interviewed several authors and asked them about their favorite places to curl up with a good book.  Antique rattan chair, in bed, on a sagging sofa (I can check that one off my list!), a wicker chair on the front porch and, my favorite:  “My beloved sofa. Coffee is within reach. The phone is not. Music is key, whether it’s from the speakers or my leave-me-alone headphones. Oh, and water. Because investing in a story is a form of exercise, just not the kind that requires spandex.”

I never th0ught of reading as a form of exercise, but I’ll be sure to mention my daily workouts to my doctor.

Note:  the cat in the picture above looks just like Leslie’s cat, Clooney.  I want that wool shawl!
