Are you asking for hobbies we considered taking up?

Is piano playing a hobby? I always wished I could play the piano.
I also wish I had taken up mountain climbing... or is that a sport? At any rate it looks fun and I used to piddle around rock climbing shortly out of high school, so I think I would have liked it.

I don't know.... I'm having a hard time distiguishing hobbies from sports this morning And most anything I wanted to do, I did

Give us this day our daily bacon.

Music copying that used to pay money, but now it's computerized. (It was fun being a lefty doing this.)

Furniture refinishing, craft painting, quilting.

I sometimes miss astronomy. I live in L.A. and the nearest dark site is at least 90 miles away at 8000 ft of elevation. I used to drive up there and join other astro geeks. I was mainly into astro-photography while I was into this hobby. I eventually sold all my astro and photo gear. This hobby was too much of a time commitment for me.

Well obviously cooking or I wouldnt be here....
Since buying a home I have been really enjoying gardening, and hopefully soon I would like to learn quilting!

Also love, reading, camping, deal finding, exploring new restaurants, and window shopping.
