Taking It "Easy"

The Janaros are just taking it easy.

It's like a new experience, after four summers of Eileen commuting to graduate school. Yesterday we all went for a lovely "hike" (really a stroll, proportioned to the smallest legs among us). Today is a day for hanging around. My wife is making a jigsaw puzzle. I don't know how she has the patience for those things, but she clearly does; I am sitting with her, watching her make her puzzle, and I am reading of course. (I wonder, is there such a thing as a "reading addiction"?) The kids are playing outside.

I've had the Kindle for a month now. It's a really useful tool. But I have to say, I love books. They are just so...peculiar, and you have to take what you get in terms of formatting. That's kind of a relief; I don't always like to have the power to dilly-dally with what font and type size I want to use. And--I'll admit--I like fiddling with the pages while I read.

We are going to relax and recreate for a little while. I may even post less on the blog this month. Maybe.
