I've picked up knitting but who knows what I'll start up next when ALL of my kids are gone to school. I'll have a ME TIME party for sure!!! Then I'll decide on what hobby I'd like to pick up. Gardening is something I love but the allergies are something I can live without.

Just off the top of my head...knitting, crocheting, embroidery, all sorts of other needlework, reading, cooking, gardening, jigsaw puzzles, pets/animals, cooking, collecting antique china, glassware and silverware, sewing, decorating.

All I can think of right now.

Designing and drawing houses for me, I see some radical building design or new idea on TV and re-hash it in to a home. Here's one of my latest brainstorms

Attie, you want to design a second floor for me for the remodeling project, I’ve been dreaming about.

Hobbies, right now or what did not quite understand what you meant. For me it is cooking and cigar smoking. And right now I am building this huge display cabinet, but I don't consider wood working a hubby. It is something I took up as a necessity.
Have to add that I really do not have enough time for either of them, so cooking takes priority.

Cooking, programming, fixing computers, writing. I think that is about it. Used to be into astronomy before moving here.. can't see the stars too well here with all the lights, I miss being able to lay on my back in the yard and see the Milky Way clearly.

Motocross, motorcycles in general, woodworking, guitars, cooking. There's others I would like to try like stained glass, glass blowing but I swamped as it is. Someday maybe. I used to do website and graphic design but gave it up.
i can draw but I only do something once every few years.

Looks interesting Attie.

I have had a lot of them. Currently cooking is all I have time for. Over time - Scuba diving (100 dives), flying (Even flew a WW II bipland copy ar 300' over Myrtle Beach), Motorcycling (Road Riding), Remodeling (Currently doing that), Auto Mechanics, Diesel trucks (Had a really great one, this one is OK), Programming and computer hardware.
