Booking Through Thursday


Today's question is: Okay, even I can’t read ALL the time, so I’m guessing that you folks might voluntarily shut the covers from time to time as well… What else do you do with your leisure to pass the time? Walk the dog? Knit? Run marathons? Construct grandfather clocks? Collect eggshells?

My answer: I write poetry and fiction. I watch some TV, and movies. I go for a walk every day (or try to, this winter has been bad for snow and ice). I garden 9 months of the year. I cook. I do tarot cards and astrology. And, I'm raising 3 kids, occasionally get out with my husband, and work full time! So I read when I get time, as my Gentle Readers know, I read! I try to spend time some quality time with my each of my kids each day, sitting with them while they watch a movie to answer their questions, or watching Holly-Anne do her little bit of homework, Graham do his puzzles - he likes one of us to sit by him to 'help' though he doesn't want our help! We go outside on the weekends and play. And with the eldest, since he is so seldom home much these days, when he is home I try to spend a bit of time with him as well. Mostly he and I watch a movie or tv together, since I won't play his violent computer or X-box games! I also am discovering I can spend hours blogging and reading other blogs, instead of reading!! TV shows I watch are:
Lost,
Battlestar Galactica,
The Office
Medium
Dr Who
House
Smallville
* I did watch all the CSI's, but have dropped them in favour of reading more!
English Premier League soccer (Sat morning/sunday must see tv in our household)
BBC Canada - mysteries - Dalziel and Pascoe, Silent Witness; Escape to the Country, home selling shows
TVO (Ontario Public Service Channel) - mystery programming (usually runs for several weeks, and are based on mystery book series)

I am late doing this meme, I was sick again yesterday at work, and am home again today. This flu bug just won't go away. My daughter's babysitter's family also has struggled with it through the week, and her kids were sick last night again. So, I might be back later, but for now, I'm going to go crawl under a blanket and put on a movie, or try to read.

I'm reading this a little late, but I hope you feel better by now!

Thanks! I wish I did, but now my neck glands are swollen. It would be really easy to feel sorry for myself, what with the 4th? 5th day of snow falling .....no sunlight....but my kids won't let me! I'm using being sick as an excuse to read and lie around the house as much as they'll let me! (which isn't very much, sadly) thus all the tv viewing with assorted children.

I too am a little late but I do hope that you get better over the weekend. And that you get some good reading time in while you're at it. : )

I've started reading Ysabel finally today...but I'm getting worse, so I sent out my sweetie for some movies, and now I have Pan's Labyrinth, Jane Austen's Book Club and Season one (disc 1) of Veronica Mars (tv series)to watch tonight. :-) I've given up doing any housework!
Thanks for dropping by and giving me good wishes! :-) Now if the kids would only go to sleep early tonight!
