Occasionally I like to throw out a question for group discussion, mainly because I’m nosy, but also because I know that there’s a lot to learn from peers and non-peers and people in New Zealand and people who actually like 3 Musketeers candy bars (WHY?).
Today’s question: What are your hobbies?
Before I was a blogger, I loved to knit, especially in the colder months. I’d sit on the couch after the girls went to bed and watch a movie and knit my little heart out. Nothing complicated: just baby blankets, scarves, + little cotton washcloths.
I really enjoyed trying out new things, so I’ve taken a belly dancing class (which I laughed my way through, because the movements were just so… movement-y), a ballet class to improve flexibility, and Jack and I took a six week ballroom dancing class when I was pregnant with Sophie. Surprisingly, we LOVED it. Jack even became our teacher’s star pupil. Every Wednesday night, a sitter would come over, and we’d drive to a local school and rumba next to engaged couples and retired couples.
Now my hobby is sort of my work, which maybe negates it as being a hobby. My schedule’s a little too packed to take up anything else, but recently I was missing knitting pretty badly. I ended up trying my hand at embroidery and embroidered pillow cases for Remmy and Sophie. It forced me to take a little time to myself, which was nice, and I only bled a few times, which is a win in my book.
Okay, your turn. :) What do you do for leisure?
