I admit it. I enjoy watching television. My husband and I unwind almost every evening with a show or two previously recorded on the Tivo while we sit in our recliners–he with his computer in his lap, me with my cross-stitch. It’s relaxing, entertaining, and helps maintain my creative well.
The only problem is that there are some shows I enjoy that Wes refuses to watch. So my compromise is to watch those shows while I exercise during my lunch hour. I play them on my phone and listen through headphones while I get my two miles in on the treadmill. Or in some cases, I sneak away to the bedroom with my daughter to get in some girly show watching time.
So, what do I watch? Well, my summer viewing runs quite a gamut.
First there are the cooking shows. I don’t want to actually learn how to cook anything, I just want to enjoy the competition and see creative minds at work. This summer there are 3 culinary-themed shows that I have been enjoying.
With all the calories I gain from watching these delicious programs, I have to balance out my viewing with some exercise. Again, I am drawn to competition. (I never realized I had such a deep competitive streak.) I love watching Grand Slam tennis. Wimbledon is on right now, and I watch it whenever I can. Hoping for a Murray vs. Federer final. My husband actually watches this with me, though, so I guess it shouldn’t count on my list.
Here are the ones my husband prefers to avoid:
So what about you?
- What do you like to watch in the summertime?
- Do you share any of my favorites?
- What would you recommend that I add to my list?
