Sunday afternoon Genealogy Fun

Sunday Afternoon Genealogy Fun – Your “Other” Life

Each week on Randy Seaver’s Genea-musings blog he has a post for Saturday night Genealogy fun.  Because of the time difference, I have called my series Sunday Afternoon Genealogy Fun.  This week, the mission was:

 1)  Tell us about your “other” hobbies or interests outside of genealogy and family history research, writing, speaking, etc.  Be mindful of your family’s privacy, though!

2) Write a blog post of your own, respond with a comment to this post, or write a Facebook status post or a Google+ Stream post.

Here’s mine:

My other interests include:

* Traveling – my daughter and I loved to go for long drives around Victoria (although not at the moment, as we need a new car)

* Reading –I like to read a little each day.  My favourite authors include Agatha Christie, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Linda Howard, Mary Higgins Clark, Dick Francis, J. K. Rowling, and J. R. R. Tolkien.

*  Entertainment – My daughter and I love to watch movies and TV shows.  We generally watch them on DVD at home, and occasionally I’ll go to the cinema.

* Eating and sleeping – My daughter and I share the cooking.  We do go out to eat, but it’s usually just take-away.  I usually get about 8 hours sleep a night.  My daughter and I tend to be night owls, so the time we go to bed and get up varies.

*  Exercise?  Not much, except swimming in the warmer weather. I know I need more exercise, but I tend to find the activities I can do sitting so much more interesting!
