Feature Follow is the day of the week that we get to know each other and make some new friends. This is graciously put on by our hosts Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Each week there is one blog featured by each host and a question to help us break the ice and open discussion. Since I am new to blogging I don't currently have a preference as to how you follow me. Feel free to follow through bloglovin, email, or GFC. I'm not picky just happy to have the company.
This weeks question is:
Reading Nook Tour, A tour of my favorite place to read.
Well I honestly don't have a favorite place to read. My wife and I have a samll apartment with our two wonderful children, so you can imagine I have very little time to read. I read in bed when the kids are asleep (reading never lasts for long). I read on the floor and at work when it's slow. When we buy a house I plan on making the perfect reading spot in my very own library, so what am I going to share???
Well the weather is turning cool again, and we all love to spend time outside. Our apartment is on the second floor, so we have this great balcony that is covered by the roof, so I can sit outside rain or shine We have the grill, a small garden and two camping chairs set up for relaxing in the cool air. Here are a few pictures of my reading spot.
This is our little balcony. We like it quite a bit, and we get a great breeze even though it has a roof over it. In my little pot in the upper right corner of my first picture is my garden. Impressive right? At the moment I only have a very healthy celery plant growing, but I'm proud. I will plant green onions and garlic later.
My chair is of course the the fancy Jeep one closet to the grill. My wife has one just like it but she likes the simple blue one better. I always like to be comfortable when I sit outside to read. I'm about to start Doctor Sleep by Stephen King so I am all ready with an ice cold beer and my comfy chair. The best way for me to relax is always family time or reading with a good beer.
This little area is for my son. He has a plastic Adirondack chair that he can sit in, but he loves playing at the table. Whether it is coloring or playing with Play-Dough, this is where he likes to take up residence.
My 4 month old daughter usually sits in our arms or in her little bouncy seat that is currently inside. It's not much, but we like it. My wife and I still have our dreams of our own house with our own version of the perfect reading spot, but for now this is pretty nice. I only use it in the fall or while it is still cool in the spring (I don't do well in the heat. I like cold weather personally).
I hope you enjoyed checking out my little reading spot. I can't wait to see what everyone taking part in the FF will have as theirs.
