Thanks to Tess over at As The Cookie Crumbles (and Cee ) for this.
Think I’ll give it a go.
1. Preference for Salt Water Beaches, Fresh Water Beaches, Hot Tub or Desert. No contest here. Deserts are OUT. I can’t be dry-docked, period. My preference is fresh-water beaches because that’s what I grew up with, but I wouldn’t be opposed to the salt-water variety–if there’s palm trees.
2. A book that everyone should read: Hard to pick just one, but I would say Still Alice, by Lisa Genova. It’s a beautifully written, poignant story about a middle-aged professor of English who is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. It’s an immensely moving–and timely–book, and one you can’t put down.
3. Favourite way to wake up and what I do: I keep my bedroom blinds open and wake up to daylight. Helps regulate your natural circadian rhythms, and gets my ass out of bed. I also wake up to my fur babies: they seem to sense when I wake up, and before I rise they’re at the side of my bed, wanting some petting. I lean over the side and pet them as they compete for Mommy’s hand.
4. What do you do to relax: Depends on the degree of relaxation I want, and what time of year it is. If it’s summer, I’m at the beach. If it’s fall, I go for walks with my fur baby. If it’s winter, I hibernate (kidding). No matter what the season, I watch documentaries, read, and play on the computer.
