too busy to read??
I've always maintained that I "don't have a lot going on here in Toronto" and that's why I read can read so much. A friend recently reminded me of all the "things" that I do in fact have on my plate including among other things: book club, blogging, pilates, crochet, a knitting class, beading/making jewelry, a husband, and friends. So yes I do have stuff "going on" here, thanks again Meghan. I guess what I should say is that since our families and a large group of our friends don't live here, we have a whole lot less going on than we would if we were in Winnipeg.
Now that I have recognized the things that keep me busy, I have a few more to add to the list this spring. I've finally (after 9 years) joined a baseball team again, a mixed-slo-pitch team. We've practiced a few Sundays now, had a few canceled by rain. I'm also trying to do pilates twice a week (again thanks to Meghan!). I started dragon boat practice again, every Wednesday until the Toronto International Dragon Boat Festival June 19-20. I've also made it out to a few awesome concerts (Said The Whale, We Are The Take), and some sophisticated evenings of wine drinking with friends. (By sophisticated I mean...umm....sophisticated, ya let's stick with that). On top of that we've started our annual spring/summer -what shall we call it...ah- extravaganza of visitors. (I love it...2010 visitor extravaganza! We've got at least 5 possibly 6 sets scheduled already with 2, well technically 3 down!)
Needless to say I honestly do feel like I've had less time to read-and although I miss reading so much, I'm really enjoying all of these other activities too! I will however put more of an effort to get out posts!
