Spare time, does it still exist? What do you do with yours?

Does anyone ever have spare time anymore?

I found that to be true so I take what my gd makes at my house home with her.

I'm trying to set aside time to practice decorating cakes. I want to learn to do the fancy cake decorating so we'll see how it goes. I have some supplies and bought a few that I found on sale recently. We'll see how it goes. (Will have to bring the practice cupcakes and such to work so I don't eat them, lol).

Sparetime? My spare time is when I decide its time to take a break. I've made the break this weekend.
Saturday we took the day or pretty much most of it and took a road trip into Red Deer, spent the time with a friend and went out to supper.
Yesterday I did minimal of what needed doing and then the afternoon I completely vegged. Did nothing but sprawl out on the bed and watch movies.
Today will be a little different in preparation for the work week that starts tomorrow. I won't be in office. Instead it's on the road for one last road trip for promoting this years edition of the Tourist & Information Guide. But I'm not going to tackle any bigger projects. Just doing the necessaries again and taking the rest of the day to relax. It's raining so I'm stuck indoors anyway LOL Just might write some more on my book.

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.

My spare time is in the afternoon, as I try to get things done in the morning.

Spare time? That's interesting because there was a time when I thought I didn't have any spare time. Now that I'm just a wee bit older ( lol ) the entire day is spare time. But today I want to use my spare time well.
There's a book and a little video by Simple Truths called "Finish Strong". I hope to do exactly that.

Spare time? Define spare time LOL If at any time I can steal any spare time I usually try and relax by playing my one computer game for a couple of rounds while still keeping an eye on work e-mails LOL

Ah how I remember those days Abby. But when you retire it doesn't change either, the kids want you to babysit, or hubby wants something when you are busy doing something else and he can get it himself. LOL.

Camey, it sure feels that way. With the work I get paid for, taking care of the kids, and writing, I'm lucky if I can BREATHE without anyone needing me for something.

Dolly, I don't like it either. There's a lot of scrolling involved.

Oy, what spare time?

I don't consider writing being spare time, since I'm approaching it like a job and not a hobby. :)

I forgot to mention I like taking pictures! Sunsets or when the sun's rays come out from the sun are my favorites. When I had little grandkids, I took lots of pictures of them. I took one and then they would move and I took another. Yep, I took lots of pictures!

I used to bake more often in the past than I do now. I loved baking yeast coffee cakes! Now I'm making myself want to bake again!

I like to read, knit, crochet, write, take photographs, surf the internet, research family history, dance, take walks, bake, and listen to music.

I'm not necessarily great at any of these things but I like to do them.

I'm working my way back to the size I want to be.
On a journey for strength and good health.

That is true! There is so much more to life than sitting here!! There really is! Life is precious!!

I love to talk and where could I find someone who would listen other than e-mails, this group (or another) and facebook? lol

Sitting too long at a computer hurts my eyes, my back, my hips. Getting up afterwards, it is slow walking. We do not realize what happens to our bodies when we just sit for long periods and do not exercise. It means we view our life through a computer, and there is so much more out there to entertain us.

I read some. Most of my spare time is spent sitting here using my computer. As a matter of fact, I spend way too much time on my computer!! I'm going to set a time limit for myself. I'm no0t sure when I will shut it off, but I will and after that, I'll write.

Thanks for this question because it helped me realize in a deeper way how much time I spend sitting here without getting my story done!
