A few weeks ago, my sister-in-law gave me The Time Traveler's Wife to read. I told her I watched the movie but she recommended that I read the book.
So, lately I've been catching up on some summer reading.
And yesterday, it was another hot, humid day and I thought it would be nice to cool off outside in the evening.
I asked the boys if they would like to join me - they both agreed.
I took out two folding chairs, and placed them on the patio. I sat down; my feet propped up on one of the chairs, and started reading.
Meanwhile, J.P came out with his light saber. My little Jedi Master was running, swinging and dueling with his imaginary foes.
And soon, his older brother appeared; brought out his book and an extra chair.
Suddenly, J.P stopped playing, pondered and then rushed back inside the house.
He, too, returned with a book!
And there we were, the three of us, sitting and reading quietly as twilight fast approached.
Usually, you would see kids in the neighbourhood skateboarding, playing street hockey or just hanging out.
Not on this day!
I was pleasantly surprised to find only young readers!
