I hardly think there’s anything I love more than a good night’s sleep. A solid eight hours (eight-and-a-half if I’m lucky) with my nose just above my quilt and a warm puppy at my feet does my soul good. I look forward to bedtime with the kind of relish that most people reserve for a really good dessert. And if I don’t get to enjoy a full night of rest, it’s best to stay out of my way until I can erase my sleep debt.
I’ll go to great lengths to get to bed on time, which is why yesterday was so unusual. I was editing these pictures and just kept going. My bedtime came and went, yet I was still up and tweaking each photo until it was just right. I started playing with the shadows and saturation and enjoyed it so much that I had to talk myself into bed.
That’s how you know you’ve found work you love.
Anyway, taking these pictures was also pretty fun. I came across a Little Free Library box and spent some minutes flipping through a Wishbone book. Have you ever seen these? In my town, there are little birdhouse-like boxes set up all over the place and filled with books. Take what you want to read, donate a novel you love–it’s up to you. I love the idea and have picked up a few books already. Still deciding what I could donate, though!
