reading during my first readathon, April 2015
If you've been reading this blog for any amount of time at all, you likely won't be surprised to hear that my answer to this question is: Reading! Preferably with a drink in hand -- hot tea, a cold Coke, or coffee-hot chocolate.

An interesting fact is that, except for horror, I read just about any and every thing. You name it, I like to read it.

A lot of the time, when I am feeling stressed and I need to decompress, or gain some sanity, I tell Dave I need, "to eat a salad for supper, lie in bed, and read." Thankfully, he is very understanding about this since it happens about once a week, or so :)

For my birthday, Dave has often given me a day off just to read a new book without interruptions. It is seriously one of the best gifts ever.

Sadly, reading is mostly a solitary occupation, unless you are reading out loud to someone else and that just isn't as relaxing. However, thankfully, Sam seems to have picked up my love of reading. I was so thrilled he joined me in the readathon this past October.

I will end with this amazing mug which Janice, another person who understands reading, gave me a couple of years ago. It's amazing because it is so true -- a long book, a big mug of tea, and I am one happy person.
