Top 10 List : Fav atcivities outside the kitchen

Okay, not that I miss Mr. David Letterman so much, I think I will come up with some "Top 10 Lists" series, something that many people find it fun to fill in, also I think it is a great way to get to know each other in wider scape...

The first one I thought about...
"Top 10 List of things you like to do when you are not cooking or eating!!"

Okay to start... mine is

1. Spending quality time with Cristiano, my sweetie, either talking, cuddling, taking a stroll around, watching a film, playing games, going shopping, doing karaoke or whatever...
2. Playing with my hammy Napoleone
3. Playing and doing experiments with graphic softwares or sound editor on our comp.
4. Going to the gym
5. Reading (either books or on computer)
6. Listening to music
7. Learning more about IT (information technology), so I may be a little more helpful with Cristiano's business
8. Trying to improve my Italian
9. Following my fave sports, figure skating and motoGP in particular
10. Last but not the least, hanging out at DC!!

NOW WHAT ARE YOURS??

Not in any particular order
Being here :o)
photography {storms}
watching storms
spending time with my family
fishing
sleeping when raining
doing the drawing part of my job

One more, though it's 11, snuggling up in front of the fire with a wrap while it's snowing!!
That is a VERY rare treat here in Texas.

Bet you all thought I'd say

1-my grandsons? you're right
2-trout fishing on quiet mountain streams with not a single person about.
3-sitting and reading without any interruption
4-painting on baby clothes
5-making victorian type Christmas wreaths for the front doors
6-watching a baseball game with DH with both of us yelling and clapping when we win..
7-watching my granddaughters ride at their gymkanas
8-I'm an opera lover so listening to one for me is relaxing and enjoyable
9-a fire, crisp apples, popcorn and an old old movie during a rain storm, the best
10-DC and visiting with all of you..makes me feel special and welcome...
These were listed not in any special order, just as special things in my life...
