A Day for Reading

I retired to bed early yesterday evening with a levomenthol patch n my forehead to counter the building migraine.  When I woke this morning it was already quite late and I still felt a little woozy so I have had a very easy day.  I finished reading  a book while I had breakfast and immediately picked up another.  This book was a gift from my Mother sometime ago but I have had other books on the go ever since so had only skimmed the back cover up until today.

I did take some time after that to fulfil my obligations under the Job Seekers Agreement and found the first hurdle to the Government’s insistence that job searching is undertaken at weekends as well – very few of the job sites actually publish new jobs over the weekend!  Never mind I have some applications to be getting on with this week.

Then I picked up with my reading and have just shut the book having completed it.  It is  along time since I read a book cover to cover in one day.

Since I haven’t been out today I haven’t taken any photographs but I thought you might like to see some taken on Dog’s stubble field over the past few winters on frosty mornings with lovely sunrises; then when I post pictures of the new road you will see perhaps why it is such a travesty.  There is also a picture of the deer and a sunset.

This was an iPhone 3G photograph but I have used it so many times because of the striking blue foreground

Peaceful images at the end of a peaceful day.  Dog likes these sorts of days when he gets to snuggle up on the sofa  while I work or relax; my problem is that Dog isn’t much of  a conversationalist.

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
