It’s raining in my town this morning. The trees are dripping their second-hand raindrops and the birds are chortling excitedly and the clouds are just being cloudy, you know?
I’ve been getting up earlier and earlier, making the most of that lovely dark quietness, before the day has truly begun. Catching up on my reading – online and bookish – and drinking a LOT of coffee in really big cups and mugs. I am a big cups and mugs kind of person.
Maybe you are not getting up really early and don’t have the dark and quiet big-coffee-filled time to find good things to read.
That is annoying for you, but you might need your sleep, so don’t be to hard on yourself. PLUS, you have someone like me to help you find the good things to read, without doing all that legwork, so you’re probably being more sensible than you know.
Here’s a bunch of things you might enjoy. And thank you for reading my blog. You’re a champ.
