Oh, if we only lived in a world where foxes could read aloud to me nightly by the fire. Recently I have been quite obsessed with painting night time illustrations. These sleepy or cozy illustrations sure do put me in the mood to read! These past couple weeks I have been waking up at 6, painting by 7, and then devoting the entire evening (6pm and onward) to reading. I must say, this routine is something I have been needing! I decided that in 2016 I would devote far more time to reading and the best way to not be distracted by work and allow myself to do some recreational reading is to have a set time window for this. This schedule truly works for me. Right now I am reading Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier and Why Not Me by Mindy Kaling. By the end of the year I am hoping to have at least 30 books read (even if they are rereads). So far, so good!
