A Mother’s Morning Basket (Winter)

Winter weather can be pretty miserable here in Middle Tennessee. Lots of cold and rainy days. It’s not my favorite season. But I do love all the cozy hours spent reading. I’ve started gathering books for my basket that I keep beside my knitting materials. I just learned how to knit this past fall. Maybe I can finish a scarf before the last frost. 😉

Do you keep your own basket of books or handcrafts? Amazon currently has a Buy 2 Get 1 Free Sale so I snagged a few books for mine. I actually bought some fiction this year! I’ll be reading Jane Austin’s Sanditon along with the PBS series!

I also included books that rolled over from previous seasons that I did not finish or some I like to read throughout the year. (Here are my 2019 baskets from the Fall and Summer.)

My Winter Morning Basket is filled with:

Every now and then, a miracle happens, and I am up before my children. When I can squeeze in some morning mother culture, I sit with my own basket of books with a cup of coffee to start my day. If I am not up before my children, I try to read during our quiet hour after lunch. But….. usually they end up in a high stack beside my bedside at night or read on the go. 😉
