What are your hobbies?

I'm trying to figure out what I like to do and how I want to spend my 'me' time but am having some trouble.
Thought I might get some ideas from you guys.
What do you like to do/What are your hobbies?

    I have a 1-year-old, so NC.com is about my only "me" time right now. Before DD, though:

    -wine (studied "The Wine Bible" and then bought/tasted the particular geographical area I read about)
    - wine classes
    - working out
    - roller blading
    - payday massages (gosh, I miss those)
    Loose botticelli curls and waves
    No silicones/no sulfates since March 2008
  • nynaeve77nynaeve77 Posts: 7,135Registered Users Curl Novice
    writing (my friends and I have an informal writing group and we critique one another's work)
    playing Sims 2 (I don't get to do that often...it's a serious time waster!)
    doll collecting (I haven't added any in a while...stupid bad economy!)
    manicures/pedicures...I normally do my own, which isn't as relaxing as having them done, but it's way cheaper! I'm pretty darn good at them, too. I even paint my daughter's toes when she's in the mood to sit still for it!

    Maybe some of these are not really hobbies, but this is how I spend my time:

    -Listening to and reading the news. I am a total news junkie...I always have to know what's going on.

    -Learning to read Latin. I'm terrible at it but I'm still trying.

    -Reading about socioeconomics, government, and history.


    -Posting regularly on various blogs and forums.

    -Home improvements. This is a hobby because I do them for enjoyment, not always because I need to.

    I can't believe someone said macrame. I did a project for Bible school crafts in the 70s (plant holder, brown with wooden beads, of course!) and I was just trying to tell my husband about it (um, apparently "hippy plant holders" was not descriptive enough) so now I am all desperate for a macrame owl to relive my 70s childhood.

    Right now I do -

    -funky embroidery
    -cross stitch
    -and I'm trying to grow tomatoes and peppers in containers - I have ten tomatoes and a bazillion hot peppers. No bell or bananas yet, tho.

    A lot of what I like doing in "down time" is really stuff that is work-related or related to being a performer ie: studying other languages, practising or listening to music, working out, fashion etc. etc. etc. I also love writing but I consider that to be part of my work as well. I'm trying to think of things not related to that and I've got sewing, non-work-related travel, politics and reading.

    I LOVE to read. I also knit, write, crochet (sometimes), and I am finding a re-newed sense of childhood in playing video games (we have a Wii). I don't get to play the Wii TOO often, and I seriously limit my time on it, LOL. But it brings me back to my childhood, playing the Nintendo and all of that.
