It’s been a while since I last wrote one of these posts, hasn’t it? And I certainly have been reading some good books. We’ll start with….Dickens.
“It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”
Guess what I’m quoting from? It’s a very well-known historical fiction novel set in the age of revolution. Still don’t know? The next sentence might help.
“There were a king with a large jaw and a queen with a plain face, on the throne of England; there were a king with a large jaw and a queen with a fair face, on the throne of France.”
The other night I was so engrossed in Oliver Twist that I could not put my book down. Unfortunately, by the time I finished it, the hour was too late to shower. (Okay, I’m sorry. I am not meaning to rhyme.) But it was still relatively early, so I wanted something to do! I decided to try a hairstyle that I meant to try that morning but didn’t wake up early enough for.
Let’s just say that my hair always cooperates at night when it’s not very clean and that I can’t do a thing with it in the morning. What can one expect? But anyway, when I tried the hairstyle, it worked! I was so ecstatic that I decided to make a tutorial for it.
Recently, I have had some nice reading time. Not that I’ve been any less busy, though, I’ve just made more time for reading. Note: another favorite thing about fall and winter; curling up with blankets by the fireplace with a book and a mug of hot apple cider or tea. #bestlife
