My computer keeps freezing, my internet is manky, and it is midnight.
We'll see how this goes.
One of the challenges living here is simply finding books I really want to read. Few English language books go by in the first place. Fewer still are ones I am REALLY hungry for, some aren't to my taste, whatever, blah blah blah...but this is now the fifth year of finding it tough to get great books, we had the same problem on the boat...and it is bugging me a bit. When I am in Toronto and have the enormous resources of the phenomenal Toronto Public Library behind me, I have too much work. If anyone from TO wants to whine about the library system there; I ain't listening. It is simply world class. I miss it horribly; along with long (read reasonable and useful) opening hours, cranberry juice, cranberry sauce, whole grain bread and coleslaw, though I could make that.
That said, it isn't snowing here, I don't have to work too hard, we live near the sea and the mountains, and BCN, I don't have to drive or commute ( I am embarrassed to admit how long I listened to the traffic report after I started working at home...I just LOVED it that I wasn't in it), we're challenged and have too many things that we want to do, and we are all together for lunch every day.
All told, ignore the whine up top. I think it is part of why I read blogs (when my internet and computer aren't freaking out): the dearth of appealing reading material.
