Cooking is a passion for me. That along with boating, reading and playing with different types of software.
It seems for the last six months or so I have not had time for anything more than reading. And the only reason I have had time for reading is because I am taking that time for myself. Makes getting everything else done that needs to be done harder, but I'm okay with that.
This past weekend I spent all day Sunday reading. Laying in bed, my laptop, kindle, iPad, tablet and cell phone all within in easy reach. (Yes I have a little thing for technology.) The day flew by for me. But overall, it was a productive day. I completed four books. Those were full length books, but I also read three novellas.
I haven't had time to read during the week. With work, working out and rushing around trying to get everything done before the end of the evening, reading just seems to be a by product of everything else. But it is my one vice that I am not willing to give away.
During the summer I lose the inclination to heat up the kitchen. I find sitting behind my computer a drag and boating is something that can only be done on the weekend. Reading. Well reading is something I can do any time of the day. I can carry my devices with me and anytime I have a spare moment I can enjoy some leisurely down time.
Reading...it does a body good.
