I'm excited to have Views From My Highland Cottage highlighted on the award winning Kittling: Books blog, feature Scene of the Blog. For several years Cathy at Kittling:Books has posted photos and descriptions of the spaces where fellow bloggers read and blog. It has been fun to share with her and her readers some of the spaces where I can be found reading and writing, two of my passions since grade school!

Welcome, visitors, from Kittling: Books!
Thanks for stopping by.
Those readers who read my last post know that I recently visited a huge book sale and came away with a laundry basket of books. Nan at Letters From a Hill Farm suggested I take a photo of my bargains that temporarily sit on my library floor until I find time and space to shelve them. Nan may have actually wanted me to take the books out of the basket for the photo op, but ......
There is presently an ebb and flow to the books. I bought several with friends in mind so I've passed them on, and my mystery reading friends added four books to the stack when we got together for lunch last weekend. I guess I'll shelve my books when I need the basket for laundry!
There are several spaces where I read or write that didn't make the Scene of the Blog post, and here are a few of them.
I read a lot while I ride my exercise bike because I can read with absolutely no guilt, no matter how long my "To Do" list is. After all, I'm exercising!
Right outside the exercise room (which also doubles as potting shed) is the patio where a few plants make it through our scorching summer. When the weather is cooler and the West Nile mosquitoes don't pose a threat, I love to sit here and read or journal.
When days turn cooler, I like to find a patch of sunshine and curl up on the sun porch and read.
Reading in bed was a favorite pastime when I was growing up, and I still like to snuggle under a quilt and read on a cold evening. (It gets cold and damp in the Louisiana winters--really!) Here is one more shot of the guest bedroom where I love to hang out.
Featured below is my childhood bedroom in Virginia where my love of reading was nurtured as I lay on my bed and read whenever I could. The furniture may have changed since then, but not the cozy feeling of reading under the eaves hidden away from the world.
