Hobbies can be a lot of fun. I went to a painting class but it was 3 hours and I could not sit that long with the degenerated disc in my back. It was free at the sr. center. I can do a little drawing looking at something. I have a selection I showed the grand kids and they liked them.

I also loved to knit but that is out of the question now with the arthritis in my hands. Then there is the singing and with allergies, I get the post nasal drip and my voice goes.

Writing is mostly what I do now. I have many poems and plan to do a book on them and also a book on cooking with grandma as I have many I did with the kids when they were small. Now they are grown and have friends so do not see them much.

So what are your hobbies you do now.

It is hard to do all the things you want when you have to go to work. But you are doing a lot and that is great, keeps your mind occupied.

I like to plant stuff and watch it grow. I even like getting into crafts, which I did when the grandkids were little. Knitting was what I did most but with the arthritic hands that is out now.
Even hard trying to type as I get pain.

Not all of them are gone. I've seen the ice cream man and his truck. ;-)

I did both as a kid, the playing outside and inside with gaming systems. Still remember duck hunter as sister preferred to get closer to tv so she had less of a chance in missing. Ah the joys of memory lane.


Hobbies: I like writing, reading, painting, baking and so much more. There are many things I want to do but with work and sleep and sometimes being lazy, I don't do much other than writing right now. I've considered doing a blog/youtube venture with doing crafts I've seen and always wanted to do. Using sources like pinterest and such, but that takes time and effort for sure. We'll see what gets done as time goes on. I do really miss painting but prefer oil and have no idea what to do with the leftover chemicals used as apartment people probably don't want containers of that lying around.

Even when you become a grandma you have to remember things change. LOL

Got email from my gd and she told me she loved the meatloaf I make. So now she got me making it for her when she comes. LOL

I have to remind myself that my kids texting is this generation's being on the phone all the time as a teen.

I can remember getting our first frig. We had an ice box and before that we put the milk out in the snow in the winter and the milkman left it in a box in the hall with ice in the summer. Then the rag man came, and the man to sharpen knives, and the fruit man, and we put a sign out when we wanted oil or ice. Then when we listened to the Long Ranger, Green Hornet, Lux presents hollywood, Amos and Andy, etc. Then we finally got a tv and it was Howdy Doody, and Milton Berle, I love Lucy, the Muffets, Blondie, etc. The ice cream man came around ringing his bell with his truck. I miss those days. Today the kids don't know what fun really is sitting and watching a computer all day or texing on there phones.

Yes i do it's funny when i worked for this one company i was waiting for my new truck and i had to drive the spare for a few days. Well it had wind up windows and my son was what are these used for?
In my neighbor hood you had to come in when the street lights cam on. We played tag, freeze tag, hide go seek, army, match box's. What we loved was wall ball, curb ball, step ball.
We would drink from the hose and never wanted to stay inside.

Thanks for the ride down memory lane

Joe how I wish we could go backwards to the days when we were young and the music was music, not noise. We didn't have much but we got along. Today, kids have 300 dollar phones.
Do you remember roller skating? Kicking the can? tag? ice skating on a pond? Snow ball fights and forts? Those were the best days. Today, the kids stay inside and play games on their computer. They do not know what fun is.

Marian I love to plant and see them produce fruit. I don't have much space now because we had termites and bombs are around the house. So last year I got some pots and had lettuce.
I had watermellon and canterlope and they came up but the summer was not long enough for them to get big enough, altho they were a good size, but not ripe to eat.

Winter is mostly reading, biking in the house and maybe going to the gym. Hard to knit or do anything with the arthritic hands anymore.

Joe, as you know I write poems too, but I do not collect old books, but do go to the used book store to buy some to read, if I am running out of books. My son was a coin collector and also stamps. I did that for a while and helped him when he was little. Ah ballroom dancing, I love that as I tend to watch it on PBS. I remember we were at a hotel having breakfast and in the other room they were dressed in tuxs and gowns doing the contest in ball room dancing. So pretty. I didn't care much for swing but did love the big bands.

Hobbies are mostly seasonal which means my gardening & landscaping during the Spring thru Fall.
Come winter when I can get to it home renovations. right now I'm looking at resurfacing my cupboards.

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 hobby now is writing. I used to write a lot for newspaper and magazines when I was younger, but now it is just a hobby. My first book was published when I was 40 and seeing I am doubling my age plus 3 and heading for 4 more in May, I don't get much time to work on my novel.

I used to knit a lot and made a lot of stuff when my son was young and even stuff for DH, and the house. I have tried drawing some but I am not that good at it, but still it passes. I went to the sr center for a class but being 3 hours, just too long to sit.

i used to sing long ago with a band and love singing but the allergies took care of that with the post nasal drip.

So what are your hobbies and do you still act on them?
