There are plenty of things that I want to do, go to the gym, set up the house, meet some friends, start cooking, etc.. I want to ease into it rather than take it all on and burn out. Until we move, I will be hanging around the towns near school since I don't yet have a house to return to. It will be nice to get the lay of the land by myself.
Maybe I will sit at a coffee shop and read my book for a while. It's a pretty interesting and true story about the raid on Baltimore, Ireland by some pirates from Algiers in 1631. They took almost the entire village prisoner and held them as slaves in North Africa. It's called "The Stolen Village" by Des Ekin. The book talks a lot about piracy, and just how precarious life was for most people in the 17th Century!
