For the boredom, you might try an ebook or two. Probably easier to mouse through the pages than hold a book open and turn the pages. If you can hold some binos, this is a good time of year for backyard birding eh?
. . . deliverance will not come from the rushing, noisy centres of civilization. It will come from the lonely places. - Fridtjof Nansen
