I think our hobbies tell a lot about us. I've enjoyed reading the ones before me. Thank you all for sharing. Some reminded me of stuff I like and have not done in a while.
I spend a lot of time on the water year round, but actually work on my boat more when its cooler doing woodwork, polishing, etc.
My side yard was torn up with the renovation we just had, so I'm working on a plan for a day lilly, herb, and small veggie garden there.
I love doing needlework when I have time.
And, as many said, reading and looking for new recipes and health info.

Family tree research is my hobby and I'm deep into it and I love it. For today's challenge, I made phone calls to the South to get more information from elders for our new family heritage book (I created it). I worked hard today! I loved every minute of it. :)

I have seasonal hobbies - ones I enjoy indoors or outdoors. In winter I love playing with my 9 chinchillas, lounging in the spa, reading cookbooks, and trying new recipes. I hike every day when it's above freezing. I like mushroom hunting, gardening, using my telescope, doing mosaics, pontooning, bird watching, making wreaths, reading diet books, decorating, and designing. I do a little beading and weaving as well.

well i love to fly sport kites but it's just too cold.. I love to hike too and yesterday I took the dogs and we did some new trails and then walked the beach looking for glass balls..

Indoor hobbies.. right now I am working on 2 afghans.. I have a new baby grandson and Steve's sister just moved to Kansas an bought a new house so I am doing one for a house warming (surprise!)

We have been making hats at work.. on a loom. My son is in Kenai Alaska and it is 20 below so I am using a heavy yarn double strand.. we are also making some for the homeless people in our county.

I also do beading and am anxious to get back to it but the 2 afghans are on the front burner right now..today will be a crochet day..

and I am doing a new recipe: Indian Cauliflower Curry stew..

I have started back here in Feb 2012 after putting some weight back on. I lost 114lbs here previously and I now know I need this community and the food tracker to keep me in check.

This time of year my hobby must be cooking.

I am flying out today to check on a family member, so won't have time to enjoy my hobby, but my favorite hobby is my dogs. I love to take them for walks, go hiking with them, brush, feed, play with them. That is my great indulgence! I will miss them today and have to make up for it when I get home tomorrow.

With love and joy,
Kelly
