Luckily, I was smart and went to the library prior to the first massive snow storm and made sure I had enough books for myself and my son to get us through. Which is where the title of this blog comes in. There is nothing better than a good book whether it's because you're snowed in under
Deltaville and good books seem synonymous. Meaning that for every trip south, I make sure I have plenty of reading material. And I also make sure that I have a stockpile of reading material there waiting. I love to read, and I read fast. So, I can burn through 2-3 books easy if I have a week with not much going on.
Sometimes I like to go down on the pier and read. If the tide is high enough, I simply lay down on the pier with my feet dangling in the water. It isn't the most comfortable way to read a book, but having my toes wet makes the difference. And if I'm still enough, minnows sometimes come along and nibble at my feet (not sure if anyone saw the reports on the very expensive pedicure treatment where people stick their feet in a bucket of water full of minnows that eat all the dead skin off your feet- same thing only mine is free).
My son- fell asleep reading after a long day on the beach- just like his mom.
