    Tell me about your hobbies.

    I'd love to know what y'all do for fun and recreation.

    I like to dance. I'm a ballroom dancer for 15 years now. It's a hobby and also a passion. I think even when I'm 90 and using a walker, I'll still be out there on the floor, wiggling my butt to music!



    I also garden. I prefer smaller flower gardens to large vegetable plots or lots of landscaping. I particularly LOVE pots...container gardening I think is my favorite!

    I love to read. I read voraciously. I have an app on my phone so that I can checkout books and audio books directly from the library to my phone, and on the drive to and from work and any time I don't need to engage my brain for work I'm listening to an audio book, and I also have other books on my phone to read when I can actually look at the type.

    I used to craft but I haven't done so in years. I'd love to get back to it, but life keeps getting in the way! I used to paint..watercolors mostly, do some sketching, embroidery, fabric painting, jewelry making. I'd especially enjoy making more jewelry, that was so much fun!

    What about you?

    Ronni - this may not totally conform to the thinking on "hobbies" but I am part of a group the recreates old radio shows. When we started, we thought it was a "sit in a circle" thing just for us. But it turns out that there is sufficient interest that we get an audience of 45-80 depending on the time of the year.

    The scripts as well as the originals are easily found on the net and are free.

    Reading, swimming, gardening, hiking and RV travel. I also love to cook though I wouldn't call it a "hobby." I have an extensive collection of cookbooks and gadgets.

    I love to read,cook, and garden,mostly veggies though. Walking, arranging and rearranging furniture and painting in my home. Finding items and re purposing them. I dabble in woodworking with the help of my son. A few crafts now and then and I just started to embroider, also and my latest endeavor,learning to sew with my new sewing machine. I like the adult coloring books also.

    I like to read, write. I make greeting cards using designs I cut from old fabric scraps. I still like the Sunday drive where I just drive around someplace I've never been just to see what is there. At Christmas I pull out my grandmother's old recipes and make spritz cookies, popcorn balls, fudge, peanut brittle. I love doing that but would weigh 900 pounds if I did that all year long. I also have a couple of solldiers I send cards and care packages to ( if interested check out adoptaussoldier.org website or their Facebook page), I spend time getting people registered to vote. When I find one of those rare candidates I really believe in, I campaign for them like crazy. I also like taking some of the non credit classes that our university offers. Sometimes I like doing absolutely nothing except sitting outdoors sipping iced tea and listening to the birds.

    I like dancing ,including ballroom dance. Now mostly it is just dancing to music here at home.

    Gardening is another one we like to do.

    We use to camp a lot mostly primitive tent. Also did a little snorkeling and lots of fishing.
    I like to study history, ancient, world and American. Although I have forgotten much of it. I use to joke I forgot more history than most people will ever learn.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
