Tomorrow is the start of a new age and another year older. Last year at this time, I was getting a phone call to let me know that I got a job. I do have many hopes and dreams set for this year. Most of these dreams I keep to myself, but the one I most think about so often is Switzerland of course. But I did add triathlons to my checklist of accomplishments finally.
In the last month or two, I have finally gotten back the interest of reading. I loved doing that while I was living in Switzerland and quite frankly missed that a lot. One thing that makes it a lot easier is that we don't have a TV and don't want to get another one either. The Internet works quite well for P and I and we plan to keep it that way.
I was able to read 2 books in the last week. I'm quite happy to have finished them. They were my type of books for sure, those little short stories that were page turners. I bought them from our second hand book store, Russell Books here in Victoria.
Last week's book was The magic of Provence by Yvone Lenard and two other books during Christmas. This weekend's book was C'est La Vie by Suzy Gershman . They are both travel writing books. I love knowing more about culture, places in Europe and a story in the life of an expat. I can relate to their feelings more about their love for their adopted country and so I think this is what makes me love to read these types of books. The added bonus is that the books store has a fair selection of those travel writing books I can pick up for under $10.
I'm also hoping to curb my addiction to that darn facebook game I keep playing. I accomplish nothing with it and don't have much to show at the end of the day for what I did. I like seeing tangible results and I guess that is my latest goal.
I do hope to revamp a website or two this year. Get better at posting my photography again and do a lot more reading. We shall see since I can be beyond busy enough with my training schedule in the pool, at the gym and outdoors.
Until then, I will just day dream of my love...
