Musing Mondays

MUSING MONDAYS is hosted by Rebecca at Just One More Page.

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about multitasking.

Do you – or are you even able – to do other things while you read? Do you knit, hold a conversation, keep an eye on the TV? Anything?

Hmmmm.....multitasking. Let me back track just a minute. Yesterday I glanced at this question (it was posted already because it was Monday in Australia, which is where I believe this comes from), and I've been thinking about my answer all last evening and this morning.

Finally, I have time to write a response.... I click on "Booking Through Thursday" and I can't find the multi-tasking question ANYWHERE! I go back, I go forth, I refresh my page...still nothing. I can't for the life of me figure out why she pulled her "musing" this Monday.

Then it dawns on me: I'm looking at Thursday's meme and not Monday's.

Multi-tasking? Me? Probably not. I used to be able to read while watching TV, but in the past few years, even that doesn't work, so I'll take my book in the other room...but that's been nice in and of itself this winter, as the other room has the fireplace. There's nothing better than a warm fire and a good book.... unless it was summer time, a hammock and a good book.....rainy day, warm cookies and a good book?

I do some multi-tasking when I read, but not much! My brain's getting too old for that.

Oh, my. This is one of the reasons I can't read! I think I have to do 10 things at once, so how could I ever be focused enough to read without doing anything else??!

sometimes I like the white noise of music of the TV in the background while I read. but I don't really pay attention to it.

I'll take a hammock, warm cookies and a good book! LOL.
