Leisure time

By brownsilent
Hello 2013!

I didn't intend to wait two weeks till I get back to you, but I needed some time to get sorted. Family is all back at their places, the house is quiet again. I got some fantastic books for Christmas and I just had to have some reading time.

I hope you all got well into the new year and looking forward to what future may bring. Let's hope it is a good year ahead for all of us.

Big plans on my side - if everything works out I'll be in Scotland in March. Exciting!
Take care,

A beautifully arranged still life, captured beautifully. A great time of year to have a good supply of reading matter around. Like you, I am enjoying relaxing with some good books, favourite music and a stove working hard as it's cold and damp here in Scotland at the moment. Hope we manage to provide some good weather for you when you visit!

I can think of no better way to spend some leisure time than what you've shown here Johanna, a good book, a glass of wine, aaahhh!
Mary got an eReader for her Christmas, now she has the hang of downloading books onto it, she's loving it, for myself I still like the feel of a book or newspaper in my hands, and I'd substitute a wee dram for the wine.
Hope you manage to get your trip to Scotland in, Runrig got anything to do with it? Wink
Rgds., Jim
PS. The trees in my upload were actually as red as I showed them kidding!

A lovely image, Johanna. Happy New Year.

You make it look so inviting Johanna, I used to read everyday in life when I travelled by train to work and it's been ages since I read a book, prefer the book tapes or discs where an actor reads the book to me. Lazy I suppose,I can do something else while I listen, you can't do that holding a book.
