Readin (Not Writin or Rithmatic)

What do you read to relax and let go of the cares and stresses of the day? Sometimes I like to read cozy mysteries, when I'm not reading or writing blogs that is :)

I may have picked this up as a relaxation method from noticing my mother reading Agatha Christie mysteries when I was a youngster. The books were around the house of course but in those days I was more interested in baseball and what was Duke Snider up to with the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Nowadays though a nice cozy mystery, an easy chair to relax in and a recollection of my father reading the newspaper in the big red chair as we used to call it (Dad's chair) brings forth a smile and makes it easier to flow into the story.


Another Recommended Blog

Need a little more - ahhh, that's better - words and pictures only ;) Here's another blog to ease your day.

Italy, food and more with a little Hawaii thrown in as well. Tossed lightly and served with a warm heart.


Another Fine Blog

Have you ever read this blog? It's a nice road to relaxation and can bring back memories or even create new ones that comfort and nurture.

I posted a short comment on this post there as it reminded me of younger days and youthful pursuits.

It seems that such comforting reading is not always so available these days and that's why I wanted to bring it to your attention in case you haven't already found it. It's been a while since I've gone there to read it and rediscovered it today like you might happen upon a comfortable old sweater at the back of the closet.
