Hello-
Just little ol me sitting here at the front desk of the spa, trying to ignite a little conversation since the phone isn't ringing and no one is walking in.

I was just wondering if anyone shares interest in the same hobbies as I do and if not, what they like to do in there spare time (if that even exists)...

I have a talent where I like to consume my every waking moment with something to do. I am going to be resigning my position here at the spa the end of March to work on our family farm delivering calves. Aside from that, I have a possibility in June or July at a PT position at the newspaper where I used to work in pre-press as a MAC operator. Hobbies of mine that fill in the gaps include:
photography (I have 7 weddings in my planner), gardening, canning, scrapbooking, horseback riding (I would LOVE to do team penning) and I am going to take up campfire cooking (cast iron).

Feel free to post! I love to learn new things about people. happy.gif

Hi appy! smile.gif This is a great little thread, don't believe I've seen one like it before.
I saw some familiar things in your list...my son's girfriend also does wedding
photography (they live in Florida) and has managed to get some great shoots,
she has her own website, business cards, etc. but it isn't full time as she
would like it to be. And I have scrapebooked before. One year my mom and
I went on a cruise together and for Christmas I surprised her with the
scrapbook and she was so thrilled! And I had plans to do many more but
alas, they fell by the wayside. It's because my mind wanders, it's very hard
for me to stay focused on something long enough to get it completed. My
brain craves organization and so anything I can get myself involved in that
works towards that goal is a temendous help to me. I like collecting things,
organizing them, labeling them and filing them away (sometimes never to be
seen again... laugh.gif ) like....photographs, recipes, Bible verses, collections of
thoughts, poems, quotes, and things on the web like beautiful or interesting
pictures I've found. All of these things relax me and keep my wandering mind
settled down. I love being outside and would love to garden but I'm afraid
my knees will not permit it.... sad.gif .

I've got lots of hobbies. Apparently I'm afflicted with the same desire as you to always have something to do.

I spend a lot of my time trading stocks and researching the market. Also an amatuer meteorologist. Still looking for a quality job in my degree's field (Economics/Chem) but working 40+ hours a week currently. Which I suppose counts as a hobby of sorts, it's a time filler anyway... I play guitar. A lot. Actively debate politics, economics. Of course all those hobbies come in second to trying to be a good boyfriend... Oh yeah, and I'm in the process of closing on a house that will require some work but more just renovation projects over the next few years. That'll be a major time consumer. It's amazing how much time there is in a day if you don't sleep a whole lot. laugh.gif Come springtime I'll be back to being an avid golfer, bird-watcher and general outdoorsman.

Well... guns guns and more guns. I collect them, shoot them and build them. I also play music often. drum kit is my primary instrument, then piano, then sax. I toured all over the gulf coast with my band and am on the radio in southern mississippi. So I'm pretty experienced in playing kit.

Since I moved back here to Ohio I haven't been in a band or played much lately so I got into guns. I've bought and sold a lot of guns and am currently in the process of a couple builds.

I play those same three instruments, but in the reverse order of primary instrument.

I just learned I will also be working on a college degree for farm business management this May. LOL

OH! I have a website for my photography too. Still learning the ropes on setting it up. If you are at all interested I believe the address is:
www.zenfolio.countryroadphotography.com
If that doesn't work I will have to check it on my iPhone.
BTW Wings, I just cleaned out my scrappy area and was simply shocked to find literally TONS of unopened/unused stickers and embellishments. I put them all on eBay as one huge lot. I gave away 2 shopping bags of odds and ends to a friend and all my stamping supplies to my mom.

I guess my current hobbies are playing a little World of Warcraft here and there, doing research on baby gear and other boring baby stuff, reading and downloading all sorts of videos and music. I used to love looking for clothes online too, but lately fashion depresses me. I'm also working on my sewing a little bit to try and improve.

When a young shaver, I had extreme interest in old bottles; I scoured through many an old abandoned dump site and amassed a hodgepodge of stuff. Nothing of great worth, but it interested me; left all but a few faves in my mother's house when I moved out, and then left my faves at a house I sold in 2006 to move across the country.

Not a hobby, but nostalgia stuff from U.S.A.; local and otherwise; will keep my attention

Repair projects are like a hobby to me, some I can get some compensation for, that's always cool.

I've got several 'home and garden' projects to complete (or start! )

Used to four wheel alot when I had Jeeps

All boating, just not enough opportunity right now (even left a canoe at that house in '06)

Hiking, best when with friends in small groups

Sky-watching out here in Arizona anytime!

Wine tasting, learning about wines, acquiring wines, sharing and receiving wine knowledge.

And lately, showing up @ 'EE' forums on accuweather.

I tried clarinet in 6th grade and was terrible at it. Lack of coordination and stubby fingers.

I started out on clarinet in 5th grade. I had a problem with my cheeks puffing out, but I eventually got the hang of it. I didn't start playing the saxophone until the summer before my sophomore year in high school.
