Monday's have the distinct pleasure of week-planning. I like to use Monday morning to give myself and my family a quick schedule run-down.
Monday and Tuesday are basic work catch-up days.
Wednesday I have lunch with a friend and get my van serviced.
Thursday is a church meeting after work.
Friday is TGIF day, and usually date night.
Saturday is our church's Holiday Bazaar.
Sunday there is an evening business meeting.
Somewhere between there I have some reading I want to tackle from my coffee table. When life was more simple, I used to read one book at a time, start to finish. But as life has grown more complex over the years, I tend to have multiple books cooking at the same time, with several waiting in the wings.
I'd love to hear your book line up this week. Here's mine:
Roseanna White is one of my favorite authors! If you haven't read her work yet, The Lost Heiress is a good place to start. Be watching for a book report sometime soon!
I like to keep some faith-reads in play and work my way through them at a pace that lets me digest.
Johnson's Host the Presence is reminding me about heaven on earth, and what it looks like to let God dwell in me daily. I haven't cracked open Allender's To Be Told yet, but I'm thinking of ordering the workbook to really dig into understanding what it means to let God write the story of my life.
Between fiction and faith, I love to add in some historical research.
First hand accounts can be very interesting.
I'm learning about the fur trade in 1803 along the Brule and St. Croix Rivers.
Then, of course, there's the bathroom read! (okay, right, not exactly on my coffee table! Heehee.)
Dr. Remen says things that make you go: "hmmmm...." Like this quote: "Accidents and natural disasters often cause people to feel that life is fragile. In my experience, life can change abruptly and end without warning, but life is not fragile. There is a difference between impermanence and fragility." Hmmmm...right? Good stuff.
And last, but not least, is my TBR pile. To. Be. Read. At that top of that list is Laura Frantz's new release: The Mistress of Tall Acre. I may hold this one to savor over the holidays.
What's on your coffee table lineup? (er, or even your bathroom reads...?)
Have you made a Christmas wish list?
