A few years ago, around the time we moved into this house, Mr. Mordecai got me this beautiful little desk, and I have used it to write letters and hold my stationery.
Lately I've been feeling I need to take my scripture study up a level. Usually I read right before bed when I'm tired, and I don't get much out of it. Sometimes I read when Tiger Lily naps in the afternoon, but I do it on my bed and fall asleep half the time.
In any case, last week as I cleaned up the guest room, the thought occurred to me that I could have a nice, peaceful little study area in there. It's so nice to be in there when it's clean, especially if I open the blinds to let in the sunlight.
Yesterday I tried it out. Sitting up at the desk, I didn't feel sleepy at all. Red Chief interrupted a few times, but it was nothing out of the ordinary. I started studying the Religions of the World manual, which I have always wanted to read. I found a copy I didn't even know I had when I organized the bookshelves.
It felt really good to sit down and study for half an hour. It reminded me of how much I miss school. I loved school. I finished too soon. A little bit of study is just what I need in my life right now. And although I want to jump right in and study ten different things for two hours a day, I think I'll be sane and just stick to the one book. For now.
