i spent a very limited time on the computer this weekend, and it felt really great. taking little breaks like that are really important to me. besides being good for my brain, it also gave me time to read like nobody's business. for most of fall i had a reading dry spell. a drought, really. and i think a big part of it was because i spent so much time online. it can be super fun to be on the computer, but it can also take a lot of time away from my day. i am working on limiting my computer time so that i can feel fulfilled in my days.
in january, something snapped me back into reading and since then i've been on a book frenzy. i spent a lot of time on the couch this weekend, soaking up the extra hour of daylight, and finishing my book. it was great.
