I just had the nicest week off. My husband worked each day so I had lots of time to myself. I decided to clean one room each day then do my own things: read, craft, walk, photography. Although, I should put "read" at the bottom of the list since I didn't do very much.
As always, I'm enjoying this newest edition of The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency. There is just something so soothing about these books. They're simple but deep and the characters...ah! the characters are wonderful!
Back to school tomorrow. I begin each block with about 20 minutes of silent reading. I can't tell you how many kids have admitted that, because they were forced to read, they finally completed a book on their own. And their teacher gets to read, too! It's a win-win for everyone!
