A Time To Relax

Wednesday night was another chilly night here in Florida. yayyy!  We decided to enjoy another fire and a good book.  Each of us received a book as a gift for Christmas.  My uncle gave hubby and I books.  Mine is "Willpower" and his is "Outliers".  Hubby and I gave Kyle the "HEMI" book.  I think this was his favorite gift! 
So, the three of us relaxed by the fire and did a little reading.  Funny thing, hubby and son ended up sharing the "HEMI" book...guys and cars! (who would have guessed it) haha!  Whatever it takes to have time with the teenager. :)



The reflection in the glass coffee table came out pretty.


Some good reading...


Fires really help me relax.  How about you?

Hope everyone is having a wonderful first week of 2012!

Your fire looks so inviting, one of my favorite ways to relax too. It is a little strange that you are having chilly weather and yesterday we broke the record high for the day by 9 degrees, we hit 69. For us in Jan that is warm.

Those all look like interesting books but the cover of the HEMI book really catches my attention. I love the old muscle cars.

a beautiful fire and love the reflections, i would love to have one to read by, since i do a lot of reading. i was happy though to wake up to 44 today instead of 34, we dont like cold weather, we like cool, as in 50 at wake up and mid 70's during the day.

I love fire...so does one of my grandsons. He pulled a stool up to the fireplace and just sat there. He said,"Grandma Muzzie, I like watchin' the fire more than watchin' TV!" Hehehehe!

Your pictures rock sweetie!

God bless and have a marvelous weekend! :o)

I've always wanted a house with a fireplace. All we have is an electric one. It's just not the same.
