Do you have a reading place? A room or a chair or a spot where you like to go to read?
I was thinking about that this morning. Our reading room is the living room. Every morning, with an occasional exception, my husband and I sit in the living room and talk and/or read. It’s become something of a ritual. This morning we talked.
We’ve lived in this house for years and until this year we’d never had a TV in that room. For Christmas we got a flat screen TV and the only place to put it was there. We thought a long time about it, but in the end, there it went. So far, we’ve not turned it on in the mornings though.
That room is ours.
We do watch TV in there in the evenings. Perhaps I should rephrase that, my husband dozes on the couch while the TV runs. I watch a bit, leave and go to the computer, watch a bit, do stuff in the kitchen, listen to it from another room, work a bit… It’s hard to keep up with any shows that way, I’ve found.
But that’s okay by me. I’m glad we’ve kept it as the reading and talking room.
