The weather has this funny game it plays here in Europe. It is called ‘’Are you sure?’’. Some days it is great for a full day or it is just horrible for a full day, but the most exciting game is when you go outside dressed for sun, you blink and it suddenly feels like winter again. These days the sun has been shining and it has been giving that early spring feeling. Now I do not want to cheer prematurely, because that brings bad luck. That does not take away that I am happy to take one of my favorite activities outside.
What is lovelier than going out to the park with a blanky, some food and perhaps some wine? I did not take wine with me since it just feels like spring, it is not actually spring. I forgot to add an important item to the list of things I bring, my book. Yes, I am the girl you will find in a park on a blanky reading and not paying attention to anyone around me. The only way you will see me look up is when some sort of animal is trying to have its way with my food. It is then that you see me turn into a pro ninja.
Unless I am defending my snacks, there is very little movement going on. I loved it. I am such a busy bee. To have a few hours of downtime is really healthy for me. Not just for me for anyone really. Treating myself to thinking about nothing but my book feels amazing. It makes me feel incredibly recharged. In those hours I truly feel treated, because it is then that I am doing exactly what I want. Seriously, if I could just read books everyday all day for the rest of my life I would.
Taking a step back with a book is lovely, doing it in the middle of nature while enjoying that early spring feeling is even better.
