Sorry friends I’ve been MIA from this meme! The first time I had posted something for had a problem with my computer and then the second time… well, my old mind isn’t what it used to be!
Anyway, happy Saturday! This week’s topic is: Hobbies! Discuss what other things you like to do besides read.
Wait, there’s other things to do besides read??!
I like to knit. I’ve been knitting for years now and as my friends and I get older, I think we tend to want to knit more. It’s fun, can be done socially or alone and now that we’re around the age when all of our friends are having babies, it’s easy to knit some cute baby items!
I write music, sometimes. And I try to find time to play my instruments. But usually that doesn’t happen! This month I’m making it a point to try to find some extra time to do all of these things I love. It means reading a bit less, but so far I’ve been okay with it!
On good days, I attempt to sew. I’m really not a good sewer but I do try. I have a lot of fabric and a lot of high hopes for potential projects. Last month I did finally do some small hemming for my hubby so that was successful. This month I’m trying to do a small sewing project every weekend, whether that’s hemming something or just spending an hour or so pinning.
I also run, even though I’m not normally a fan of running. It relieves stress and I don’t run very fast or very far. (Usually only 3-4 miles at a time) while my hubby does marathons. We are no way in the same league. Still, it’s really great thing to do after work and helps me work out some every day frustrations and clear my mind.
And of course I blog.
What about you? What do you do other than read? Do you knit or crochet? Do you play sports or ride your bike?
