I’m back! I only intended to miss one week of the hop, but ended up sick for a couple days after my return from holidays to am just getting back on board today! Our topic this week was posted by Jenna Da Sie:
Besides writing, what are some of your hobbies?
A hobby is technically described as a regular activity that is done for enjoyment. On a normal day, most of my time is taken up with work or writing tasks, so to be honest I don’t have any other regular activities. I’m not counting reading in this category. That’s not a hobby. That’s a life requirement. 😊
That being said, there are lots of things I enjoy doing. I love to take photos, and a few years ago we invested in a “real” camera with interchangeable lenses. I love looking through the viewfinder and composing shots. Even if I don’t print them out just that creative act is satisfying. Here are a few of my favourites from our holiday (Full Disclosure - Mr. C might have taken some of these shots, but they were too good not to share):
As I sit here and look out the window at snow that is piled as high as my shoulder at the edge of our driveway, I’m eagerly looking forward to doing some gardening. We don’t have a vegetable garden, but I always have lots of flower containers scattered about. Once they’re planted there’s not much to do other than water them, so not sure if you’d consider this a hobby, but it is something I love to do.
I always admire people who quilt or sew, like my mother and oldest daughter, or who can make furniture out of pallets, like my second daughter. But those skills seem to have passed me by (it’s probably my lack of patience rather than skill set, but whatever…)
What hobbies do you have? If you have photos of your projects, feel free to share them! Then hop on over to A.S. Fenichel to see what she does in her spare time. She’s just recently moved into her dream home – I’m betting her hobbies are centred around that right now!
