It is early in the morning and the sun has not yet come up. It is dark and lovely in our cozy house. A few minutes ago, I walked into the parlour and saw the blazing wood stove and a calming gentle light casting shadows in the little room. I saw my favorite chair and wanted nothing more than to sit and read and get warm before anyone woke up. I will do that in just a little while.
I will make a little hot chocolate in a pretty tea cup. Then I will settle myself down and enjoy the quiet. A few days ago, I finished reading Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens. It was a sad and precious story. Now I am working on a new book. It is set in early America when most households had servants. It is intriguing and entertaining. But best of all, it is a Christian book by Revell and I will be writing a review for it in just another week or two.
All too soon, the family will be awake and wanting breakfast and conversation. The house will come to life and it will be pleasant. I will be delighted to face the family with happiness and cheer. But first, I must sit in the dimly lit, cozy parlour and read my book and drink hot chocolate.
