It's time to take a break from writing on the Romance Writers Weekly blog hop. A.S. Fenichel asks:
When you're not writing, what do you do? Hobbies, passions, goals…
If you joined me from Leslie Hachtel, welcome!
Downtown is pretty precious in my world, as it is with most people. With a full-time day job, grown children that come to visit (yay!!), my own writing, the occasional editing project, and the necessity to cook and clean at least once in a while, I don't have a lot of time left to fill.
When I do, I can usually be found reading, and most likely a romance novel, though I do try and branch out occasionally. Each week in my newsletter I write a little about the books I'm currently reading (FYI: If you subscribe to my newsletter here, you get a FREE copy of my short story, The Life She Had Before.)
If I'm not reading, I'm usually hanging out with Mr. C. I'm not much of a winter person, so during the cold months I generally huddle inside. Now that spring is on it's way, we are taking the dog for long walks, and I can't wait for things to thaw just a bit more so I can get out in my gardens. I love to plant things and see them flourish, although I'm not much for weeding. And the warmer weather also means we'll be able to get out camping soon. SO looking forward to that!
What do you do when you have downtime? I'd love to hear from you! Leave a note in the comments, then be sure to hop on over to the instigator of this topic, A.S. Fenichel. You'll find her blog here!

Ooh, boxing! That actually sounds like a fun way to work out. At least you'd feel like you were learning a new skill why you sweat! :)

We have a garden at our house and I haven't done anything with it yet! Maybe it will become a new hobby.

Start small, Jenna! And get your little guy to help. Kids love planting seeds.

When I'm not reading, I have 2 golden retrievers and a middle-schooler to keep me busy, so genuine down-time is scarce!

We had a dog for about 10 years (adopted her at 5 so we missed the puppy stage). Decided last year to get another dog, and got suckered into a puppy. I wondered what we had done the first few weeks! But she's almost a year old now and I am really enjoying getting her to do "tricks." Lots of fun!

I craft with my daughter, love to learn to cook new recipes, walking around, shopping

I wish I was crafty. About the only thing I can do well with my hands is type. My mother is amazing - you can show her something and she can make it - and my oldest daughter inherited those genes - she makes her own clothes by refashioning thrift store finds - but that totally passed me by!

My favorite things to do are read, spend time with my family and my cats, and watch sports!
