Coffee and a book . . .

When you look out the front window and see this view the best thing to do is to grab a cup of freshly brewed coffee and a stack of books.  That is what I have planned for tonight!  TGIF!

8-10 inches of heavy snow has fallen in our town.  Thankful for a busy street crew that hummed up and down the streets all night long. 

                                       Here's the problem - If you were to wind your way down to our family room and spot the brown, cozy recliner - you would have to step over this below ... look familiar?

I tend to end up here at some point every night and while I suffer through Swamp People or some such "oddity" I turn the pages of my Mary Jane Farm notebook deciding what badge to work on next, or I write in my Gratitude Journal a brief entry for each day (also a badge for MJF), or read my Bible or devotion for the day, as well as my book club selection, another book I'm about to finish, a self-help book by Bill Hybels. Oh, and a couple of magzines that came in the mail.  And when I can pry the Ipad out of hubs hands I will be on it as well. :)

One of the blogs I love to follow now is Jen's Journey.  I think she might be my long lost twin sister!  She loves to organize!  And I am stealing her great idea seen below.  She refurbished a basket and it is just the right size for her two Bibles - study books - notebooks - markers - pens - pencils and post-it notes.   She can easily grab her basket and set up shop anywhere that works!

Thanks Jen for a great idea!

Enjoy your Friday night!  Enjoy your weekend!

And my version - determined to not buy anything new - I had a 31 brand bag that works well!


  1. Oh, I love this! I even think I have a basket that might work. Thanks to both of you for sharing a great idea.

    1. I'd love to see your Bible study basket when you get it arranged by your favorite chair! Thanks for the comment!

  2. I like that looks great! Enjoy reading and having that cup of coffee. The snow does look beautiful.

    1. Thank you Debby - I'm going to be looking for a basket hopefully something I have at home! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I enjoyed your Friday Fragments!
