Between The Covers

My two most recent books I picked up from the library for my upcoming reading pleasure!

I thought that the title to this blog was very apropos given my recent activities and current situation. During this time of recovery from the two surgeries (and especially the spinal fusion), I’ve been truly “between the covers” more now than ever . . . whether I’m referring to my bed or a book!

It’s only January 13th, and I’ve already read three books this year. WHAT??? That’s not like me at all, at least in recent years, BUT IT IS EXACTLY LIKE THE LISA OF MY CHILDHOOD!!! While growing up, I had a voracious appetite for reading, and I just couldn’t wait to retreat to my bedroom or some secluded corner to do so.

I remember in one house that my parents built (they designed and created custom homes), they gave my sister and I a HUGE, LONG room. The last quarter of it was partitioned off with open shelving which ensconced a door frame. In that area were beanbag chairs, a desk, books, and a TV. It was such a gift and a haven wherein I spent hours upon hours locked away with some fantastical tale that swept me away to another world.

This is the library that I would always take Brooke and Ashley to when they were small. When we went back there this morning to get a few books, it was such a sentimental walk down memory lane. <3

Ahhhh, this is one of the joys of my recovery. I’m once again delving into this long, lost love of mine and thoroughly enjoying the opportunity! What did you use to do when you were young that you dearly loved but laid aside as time took its course?

Isn’t Life Grand?
