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?
I’m an English Teacher, so when I read this question I had to chuckle because from August to May I don’t have a lot of leisure time; it does mean lots of grading and Speech and Debate Tournaments. I get as much reading in as I can, and I listen to books in my car, and I manage to find time for a few other things as well.
I love stories of any kind, so I really like TV and movies and watch my fair share of these. Other than stories, I also love painting walls in my house: every room has some kind of special paint technique, and I’ve had fun being creative with that. I am also learning to love working in my yard. I love flowers, and I’m slowly learning how to best grow the roses and other things I inherited when I bought my house. This past summer, I even bought a few new ones to fill in some holes in the blooming–my favorite is the Lupin (coincidence since I love the Harry Potter Books?).
Just thinking about this stuff makes me want to paint or pull some weeds. Too bad I have so many papers to grade!
