Today I got to thinking what are some of my favorites things. So I said to myself, "Why not write about "Some of your favorite things." So here goes....
One of my favorite things is; I love to watch a beautiful waterfalls. Not only are they lovely, but for some reason when watching a waterfalls I find it very relaxing.
Another of my favorite things is the autumn season. I just love the beauty of the many different colored leaves. Just looking out over an ocean of forest and the variety of the many different colors is just breathtaking.
A good book to read is another favorite thing that I enjoy doing. If I have a good book to read I never get bored. Really it's the opposite, I never seem to have enough time to spend with my books and my reading.
I'm finding I also enjoy blogging, which I don't know if that is good or bad. I love writing down my thoughts and reading what other people are writing about. Some are quite interesting. Whereas others I just pass on by and don't give them the time of day. I'm kinda like that with books. If I start to read a book and I don't find it interesting, I don't waste my time reading it. I have learned over my years of reading, that if a book is boring in the first third of the book, it probably won't get any better the next two thirds of the book either. I realize it takes a short period of time to set up the story line, but when it goes on and on and nothing interesting is happening it probably isn't going to happen later on.
I love my quiet time, which is one of my very favorite things. I no longer need a lot of activities going on around me to be happy. Part of my quiet time I like to spend listening to the radio, that is if it is playing my favorite music. So listening to the radio is also one of my favorite things to do. Which I do many Sunday afternoons. This past week listening to my favorite "Musical Memories" radio show, I called in and guessed who was singing the song and won a $20.00 gift certificate to the "Ox Yoke Restaurant." Of course we will be using it, since we love eating out...
Another favorite thing I like to do, is watch a good movie on TV. I even like being able to watch it alone or maybe with friends who will enjoy watching it with me. I don't like a lot of distractions when I am watching a movie. Otherwise, I miss a lot of what is going on and miss the whole point of the movie. I really am beginning to sound like a snooty kind of a person. Oh! well that's just the way it is with me. If I am going to watch a movie, I want to be able to follow the story and know what is going on, otherwise it becomes very boring and I loose interest in it.
Well, I have to get back to my "Reading Corner" and get back to reading.
