I'm so happy with my books!!!!

Thursday, November 10, 2011

I just acquired :

1) How to train your dragon series (books 1 to 7)
2) The lost Hero (book1 of the Heroes of Olympus series, a sister series to the Percy Jackson series)
3) Inheritance (Book 4 of the Eragon series, actually, the series is also called Inheritance but I put Eragon for ease of reference, Poalini fans will know what I'm talking about)

Of course, I had to save up for all these and I didn't get them all at one go, but gradually, week by week when I had some spare cash. I can't wait to read them all!

    Sounds like you're all set for a rainy day. I love to read too. I just bought myself a Kindle (it's great - books are cheaper), but I've found I can get lost so easily in an interesting story, that I started listening to Books on Tape when I run. It's better than listening to music. I can really get lost in the book and suddenly find I've run an extra mile or so.

On a side note. I've read all the Percy Jackson books and just bought the first hero's book. I also read the first Eragon book. Sounds like we have the same taste in books (or something close). Have you read the Dresdan Series or tried, the "So you want to be a Wizard" books. I also like the Devinci Code type of books and read anything by James Rollins, Matthew Reilly, or Lincoln Child & Preston Douglas (Thunderhead is perhaps my all time favorite book).

Well, it was fun talking about books. Good Luck and Good Reading.

Desire is the cause of suffering!

Monday, November 07, 2011

That is a saying by Buddha. I'm a Christian, btw, but I was brought up a Buddhist and I must say that Buddha has a good point. At the moment, I'm itching to buy lot's of material things. And iPad and an iPhone, among them. Don't even get me started on the books I'm longing to get my hands on! Then, there's the clothes, shoes and handbags that most women fall for!

Sometimes, I can spend hours planning how to spend my money, I even plan for next week's money! You get the picture! This has made me feel such discontent that sometimes it interferes with my sleep! I guess I should learn to be contented with the stuff I already have! Then, maybe I won't be suffering so much!

    My ex-husband had the same problem. What a good example of what depression can do to a person's life. I feel very lucky that the need need for things - bigger, better, newer - is not a part of my disorder! I have sympathy for those who have the need. I know it is very real and can become quite debilitating. It robs you of the opportunity to have contentment in your life.
I have no advice for you, but I want to offer what I do have - support! Hang in there and let me know if I can help you in any way.

My printer is driving me crazy!!!!

Sunday, November 06, 2011

and I just refilled the catridges with new ink! It was working fine like 2 hours ago, but I didn't manage to get my printout because I had no black left. So I refilled not only the black but all 4 catridges. And now, my printer just won't behave!

So, I'm turning it off and walking away from it today, I'll try again tomorrow, if it still doesn't work, I'll have to send it for repair!


It's raining nearly everyday now!

So, if I want to begin my exercise program again, it'll have to be indoors. Probably an exercise DVD! I wish I had more titles and choices to choose from but in Malaysia, there's not much choice in exercise DVDs. Mostly Denise Austin, for some reason!

But I still have some phlegm in my throat and I've been sneezing quite a lot. So, I haven't completely recovered from my flu yet but I will, soon, hopefully! I'm itching to get started on sweating again!

Can't wait to start up my exercise program again!

Saturday, October 29, 2011

I still have the remains of a slight flu. My throat is still producing some phlegm but the good news is, I'm not coughing constantly, just occasionally, which is an improvement. My nose is also not blocked all the time like it was a few weeks before where I'm constantly looking for a piece of tissue to blow my nose.

So far, I've gained a kilo, not thrilled, not thrilled AT ALL! So, I can't wait to start my exercise program again! I'm planning to jog/walk, with the emphasis on jogging, intervals, y'know. I want to break out into a good sweat every time and I'll be also doing strength training most days. Previously, I was lazy and just strolled in a relaxing manner most days for cardio but I also did do some strength training most days. But first, I have to recover from this flu otherwise I'll make myself worse. So, I'm just bidding my time here...........
