When getting ready for my trip over to Australia I brought one book in the hopes that I might get up the energy to read, and yes, it takes energy! I started reading on the plane, and to be honest, I didn't think I'd finish it and I'd end up leaving it at some hostel. But to my surprise, I finished it, a couple weeks later, but I finished it. And that included reading on the beach for a time period longer then 15 minutes! I picked up another book....and finished that as well. And you know what, I'm enjoying it! I have a west facing balcony, so when I get home from work I usually sit outside with my book and read for a couple of hours enjoying the sun, as well I usually read before bed. I'd say most has to do with the fact that the TV here sucks....we only get 4, sometimes 5 channels, and to be honest, I have no desire to watch TV. I think since I've been in Australia (apart from watching sports, which was mainly the tennis when in Melbouren) I have only sat down in front of the TV about 5 times, no word of a lie. Even being here in Tasmania and 'settled' down, I don't really care to watch the TV. I go for regular walks, I've also joined the gym, and I've rented a few movies. I guess you could also say that I have done more cooking in the past month, then I have in the past three years!!! K, its not that bad, but I have no one to cook for me .....I miss you mom and Donna!!!! (as I look over at my very burnt garlic bread with a tear rolling down my cheek!!! haha)
I am currently on my 5th book, Dark Watch by Clive Cussler, and look forward to doing much more reading.....and hopefully it won't stop!! Off I go to read now..... :)
And here is a picture of my burnt garlic bread....I wasn't lying :( I wish I could say it was because I was reading, but I was chatting on-line....lol
The picture doesn't do it justice, it was black as molasses and rock hard!!
