I’m Just a Girl Looking for a Nook

It’s happened, guys; it’s finally happened. I dare not speak it aloud, but… I believe… fall has reached Tallahassee. For the last week it has been consistently cool outside, we’re talking high 60’s – low/mid-ish 70’s during the day, 40’s and 50’s at night. It’s been WONDERFUL! I know that isn’t super cold for most of the country, but for us? It’s almost a freeze. As the ability to wear both socks and long sleeves has gone a bit to my head, I have rediscovered my desire for a reading nook. Not just a comfy chair, a designated cozy spot with good light, storage area for my books and well… that comfy chair or really a comfy reading surface.

I have to say that there is a part of me that is really liking that many of these have some sort of covering. I mean, a reading nook is awesome, but a reading fort is even cooler. That’s right; I’m a 31 year old woman daydreaming about making my own fort. As I’m typing this, I am realizing that whatever I make I’ll need to account for at least two cats. Reading is better with cats, and mine are a little spoiled and tend to commandeer any horizontal cozy area.

As much as I am loving this idea, it may end up on my “to-do” list for 2018. A new nook for a new year and all that.

Reading Nook – More Inspiration

I am really excited about creating a reading nook for myself. Currently I read either on the couch (so I can hang with Andy when he is gaming/working) or sprawled out on the bed. Sprawl accommodation is going to be the key to a really awesome reading nook. Although, I think a sitting sprawl will be preferable to a full on stomach sprawl.

The cats prefer me to read in stomach sprawl, so Oliver can sleep in my space created by me propping myself up on my elbows, I usually also have one cat laying in the curve of my lower back, and some days I even have one on the back of my knees. I would make them move, but they’re so happy and it keeps me warm when it colder outside and I can’t wedge my feet under Andy to keep my toes warm. I am pretty sure warming frozen toesies is one of the things he agreed to in the wedding vows.
