Sit on my second floor deck with my fur balls and Spark with my Kindle. Sometimes do a crossword puzzle or read. The world is peaceful. I sit across from the woods.

I love scrap booking and taking pictures. I carry a camera with me at all times......never know when a photo opp will be in front of me! I also enjoy spending time with my Sisters in Christ, going to Bible Study and our Church Women's group meetings/activities.

i spend a lot of time with my dogs and cats (and kids). "My" time is spent trying out new recipes for the humans in the house, and making treats for the canines. I also enjoy movie night (usually Friday). This week's movie was "All is Lost". I like Robert Redford and I was actually surprised at how much I like this movie.

As soon as school is out, my daughter and I will be doing dancing for exercise. She can't wait -- only 17 more days.

Never give up, never quit.

I have a lot of spare time at the moment because I am on medical leave but I am not able to do much. I do love to read or watch a good movie. We have a horse, so basically all our free time is spent with her. I love to go out on the horse trails on foot with our dog, winter or summer, but I actually prefer winter. I also like to ride the trails on horseback. Love being in the woods.

Hi! With my big brood (4 dogs, 6 cats, 2 birds), there's not as much "spare" time as I'd like - but I enjoy cooking, reading, and watching British mysteries on CDs. In the spring and summer I enjoy gardening. I used to love to knit but since my arthritis go bad it hurts too much.

My favorite things to do are read, write, and talk with family. I also love taking my dog to the dog park nearby. It's huge with a pond and walking paths, so she loves it! She's also a fast runner and loves being chased, so it's always better when there's another playful dog there.

I try to read, although I don't retain much of a book I'm better with short articles. My new puppy and training her, and the computer. I used to sew but I don't have any projects going right now. On my husbands days off we try to go do different nature trails with the pup.

Oh my, I'm with you both on the reading! I always have one fiction (usually sci-fi/fantasy) going and usually have a second non-fiction book that I read during meals. So two at a time. There are always books on my wait-list, to take over as soon as I've finished those I am currently reading!

HMMMM....I have so many hobbies I don't have enough spare time for them all! LOL first I love music and singing and playing guitar, then I'm obsessed with books..sooo many i can't keep up reading them all so now I'm reading a book to teach me speed reading HA! I am also an active member of PETA , a vegetarian, training for my first 5k, giving my 3 formerly stray cats lots of love attention and yes...mostly the fake chicken from morning star farms...lol my Emma just goes nuts for the fake buffallo wings..she literally attacks me. I love driving my car on a gorgeous day with the top down blasting my fav tunes extremely loud :) I love talking to all my friends on here and facebook. I also practice TM which has done wonders for me personally and I donate my time to help raise funds for the TMusic label and David Lynch Foundation to bring TM to people in impoverished countries, children in schools and anyone with the suffering of PTSD. And then when I can I go see all my favorite artists when they perform live...usually in NYC but a few I chase around the west coast and mid west!

And in the end you'll see.YOU WONT STOP ME!

Just came back from promoting greyhound adoption at the Las Cruces Renaissance Arts Faire! Twelve greyhounds, seven humans. Met thousands of people, perhaps a hundred interested in adopting. Garnered almost $1,000 in donations to greyhound adoption. Had a ton of fun!

Blog will come out in a few days, with photos. :D

Thank you, Sandi! I intend to post one more blog about the Age of Chivalry, with photos of Jade and Nod participating with royalty. The "King and Queen" of the Faire borrowed the two hounds for an evening event. :D

It is much better than it used to be, FLOWERDALEJEWEL. In the U.S., about 95% are going to adoption groups now. Some states are even better. In Arizona, where I live, it is rare for a hound not to be given to one of the adoption groups at the end of its career.

And retired racers are not necessarily old. I adopted my older girl when she was only 21 months, as she flunked out of racing school. My other was just over 3 years when I adopted her, a pretty normal career-length.

I love the pics of the "lounging greyhounds" they are just couch potatoes.

It's such a shame they are discarded when they are no longer racing. It's typical of anything that has money involved.

Peace and long life - Jules

Recently spent three days promoting adoption of retired racing greyhounds at the Age of Chivalry Renaissance Festival in the Las Vegas area.

To see pictures of those lovely hounds, read one of my recent blogs. :D

Spare time? Is that what you call the 15 or so weekends each year that I dedicate to promoting greyhound adoption at Renaissance Festivals & Faires?

I like to read, to walk with my Smiley Miley, to watch movies, to go to outdoor concerts or festivals or parks

In my older age I am much better at prioritizing "play" time than I was as a kid - so maybe it is now the chores that I do in my spare time - when I am not working or playing LOL

I don't call them "spare" because they are wqually important as the other days. But I volunteer at the Hospital Mondays & Wednesday mornings in the Pharmacy. I love it I deliver patient-specific IVs & medicines to the units & Nurses stations using a Pyxis computer to track all meds coming & going.

I also love to read, James Patterson's books especially, I used to read only Self-Help books until I self-helped myself out to oblivion. I gave them up. Now I read for enjoyment, they may be murder mysteries but they are pretty spectacular. He's a very good writer.

I also love to garden when I have a house with a yard. emoticon

In my spare time I volunteer with a training program at the humane society, I also like to read and do craft projects. There are a few shows I like to watch like the voice, and a few crime shows. During the winter I am more of a hermit but during the spring summer and fall I like to be outdoors and at camp.

I love to read. In the winter when it is cold outside my mom and I are in our chairs, her dog up with her and mine up with me and we have our noses stuck in a book. When the weather gets warmer, like now, I am outside working in the flower beds. The reading is then for when we have a rainy day or when it gets dark out.

hello everyone :) my favorite thing to do in my spare time, beside cuddling and playing with my pooches, is, to be outside taking pictures. I live in a beautiful corner of this planet and there is all kinds of gorgeous things to capture. I also like to read, knit, cook... I LOVE gardening !!! I love herbs and especially medical herbs. I make creams, and teas and soaps and all kinds of other "herbal" crafts.
A new hobby in my spare time seems to become Sparkpeople ;) oh and the gym...ya I guess I should mention that too...heheh.
Have a great night everyone !!!
