Summertime--dip in the pool, gardening, dip in the pool, gardening, dip in the pool. Lately it has been too hot even for that, so I have been reading in front of the fan.

Wintertime--I bought a dollhouse kit last fall, and that took me most of the winter to do the outside. This winter, I will start decorating the interior. And of course, I read in the winter, too--3 or 4 books a week. No TV, rarely a movie.

Reading, cooking, sewing, TV, Sudoku, DC and about 3 shopping trips a month.

(Sudoku is great for strengthening short term memory.)

dollhouse interior design - infinitely more intriguing than working on one of those multi-thousand piece jigsaw puzzles, imo, but it does sound expensive. is it?

I live on the river, so we kayak, canoe. I have a bit of a recording studio in my basement, so I tinker around down there, play the drums a lot using exercise books. I would say play in a couple of bands, but that has become a job that I do to suppliment my income, so its not really a past time anymore.
My daughter and I own about a dozen different styles of flying discs, frisbees, so we try and get out for a bit every couple of days in the backyard. Usually while supper is cooking. I am also a foriegn and indie movie fan, so we fire up the Netflix at night as the last thing before bed.

And like pacanis, I love my beer. But, usually before supper while I am cooking. Once supper is over, and later at night when the tv may go on, I am done with the beer. But, around 6:00 p.m. the party is in full swing

What I like most about Sudoku is the "satisfaction factor" - it's a real rush getting it right.

Free time---well, with the chickens, gardens, work, and all the go with those things--free time is spent cleaning the chicken house, weeding the garden, paperwork, and sleeping...oh, that's right, sleeping was not to be on the list...I enjoy "date" night/day with my DH--a good ol' farm auction, canoeing, snowshoeing, or cross-country skiing in the winter. We seem to have more "free" time in the winter. And, I love a good book.

A lot of my time is free time. The #1 answer is read. Actually, that would probably be numbers one through twenty. Preferably on my lazy-boy with doggie on my left and a glass of wine at my right. I don't count gardening as free time, but as a job I have to do if I want (and I do) garden tomatoes and herbs in the summer. Even then there are more weeds than anything else in my yard! I like to do some beadwork, but I always put it away before my big Christmas party (first Sunday in December)(too much temptation for little hands), then got new doggie who can jump 4'. So instead of being able to do it in the living room on a tv table, I'll have to move to the dining room table, and just haven't gotten around to it. Another is cooking, especially in the winter.
