I love to read. I read everyday. Most of the time, I read before bed. I find that its the best way to calm me down; and then I can really get into a story. When I read, I need a quiet place. So when I thought about making a little spot for reading, my bedroom became a great place for such a thing. There's not much to my reading nook, just a comfy chair, a table for a drink, and some cushions and soft things. And a light. I may change the light, but for now its a great place for me to read and relax before sleeping.
Do you have a special place to read? Where is it?

Branch weaving showed up in my Pinterest feed, and I thought it looked really cool. I really wanted to try it that minute. But I didn't have a branch. Because the city was living under 3 feet of snow. And I don't pull branches of trees, because that's bad for them, and I'm not a 10 year old, so I waited until I came across one laying on the ground.
Last week, D and I went on a death-defying hike. The trail was covered in ice. So much ice! What wasn't ice was knee-deep snow. It was beautiful, but treacherous. That bridge in the background? Completely iced over.
But, I found a branch, and during one of my fave TV shows, I set to weaving on it. When I finished, I thought it looked nice:
But, I had no idea what its use was or what I would use it for. I needed to finish one of these, for some reason. Now that I have, It sat on the coffee table for a few days.
When we came across these bottles on sale for $1, I knew where I could put my new weaving:
So now it lives on my bookshelf. Making my books a little more interesting.
