What do you do to relax? I would guess that most of you, like me, find quilting is a peaceful occupation. I also enjoy baking but if I am really stressed, I read a book.
When I worked (as in 'got paid') I used to say to my husband that I would like to go to a motel for a couple of days and just read. Would be even better if I could get room service.
The one problem besides funds was that I read so fast that I would have had to lug at least ten books with me. When we first moved here and were living in the camper with nothing to do, I was reading a minimum of four library books a day! You can go through a small libraries collection in a very short time doing that.
The other problem I have with reading is that once I start a book I don't want to put it down until I have finished. Therefore, I don't read before or in bed or anytime I don't have a couple hours of free time.
I have a number of favourite authors and usually read all their work. We have a great library in the village and the staff let me know if something has arrived that they think I will enjoy.
My husband will be busy hunting for the next while. I think I might see if there is something on the shelves I haven't yet read.
