I am curious what other hobbies besides reading everyone engages in?

Me: I knit (which now I can do while reading since I don't have to be holding pages down wheeee!), read comics, volunteer as a driver for my local Meals on Wheels, trying to train my Greyhound to do anything (which isn't working at all), I study European and Brazilian history, and am attempting to learn Portuguese (re-learning), and Irish Gaelic.  I also love hiking in the woods and playing board games (my favorite is Settlers of Catan).

I used to say one of my hobbies was quilting but since I decided to start selling stuff, it's not really a hobby!

My real hobbies are birdwatching, photography, reading, travel, car stuff...

Writing, surfing the net for manga, and going to the dog park. I'm one of the youngest at the dog park, but its never too boring.

today at the dog park the sprinklers were on in the small dog area, which drained out to the large dog area. A couple of dogs decided to run through the mud. Then the dogs chased me (I was eating chocolate covered almonds and some tangerines). Then my dog got ahold of my keys and I had to chase her.

What a crackup! That sounds like it should be a scene in a superbowl commercial. ;D

Hobbies...I'm not sure I have any hobbies anymore. I have lots of interests, but I can't honestly say that any one of them qualifies as a hobby. When I was a kid I used to build models, but that probably doesn't count!

Like Betsy, my main hobby used to be scrapbooking, until I turned it into a career. I now create digital scrapbooking supplies and sell them at a store online.

My hobbies include cross-stitch and knitting, (both of which I would love to do more of, but I don't), kayaking, biking, and napping! :D

Oh, you have a greyhound! My greyhound Jessie died a little more than two years ago. I miss her every day.

Hobbies? Being here, reading, surfing the net... Like Mike said, I feel like my hobbies are beginning to resemble my work.

besides reading I knit and sew.  I love making sweaters and would believe no one in my family wears them. So know I just knit afghans and give them away.

So, obviously I was reading too fast: my brain caught 'driver' and 'train' and 'Greyhound' and for a moment I thought you were in the transportation business. . . .

I play music at my Church. . . I guess that's a hobby. My friend and I check out pretty much every Craft Show that comes down the pike. I can't make any of that stuff but I've had very talented friends over the years so I'm pretty good at figuring out if a thing is worth the price they're asking. . . .

When the mood strikes, which has not been very often lately, I play with glass. Stained and fused. This is what happens to me when hubby goes to an auction.

Ann, who do you think holds me up as the bad example?

VA: cigars...often contraband cigars, which actually carry a more severe penalty than other contraband smoke.  (And for any aficianados reading this: YES, I Do Know My Sources). Many Habanos found in the USA are fakes.

Playing with my dogs and watching professional wrestling <koff>.

Vegas_Asian, that's wonderful you have a dog park to go to. I miss the dog parks I visited when I lived in the SF Bay area. There's one right on the bay in Richmond. It's huge and there are hundreds of dogs there on weekends. It's a joy to see all the dogs having so much fun, and the water dogs are particularly spectacular as they retrieve and play in the bay.

But here in Florida I have a couple acres and 3 dogs now, so I kinda have my own dog park. Several of the neighborhood dogs come over to play. It's a riot. :D

I (hopefully) just finished my MBT (if I did well on my final last week) so I haven't had much time for too many hobbies besides reading, school, and scrapbooking.  I'm off to a scrapbooking retreat next weekend Friday-Sunday...whoo hooo...now if I just had my Kindle I could read before bed each night.

If I don't need to take another class I'm not sure what I'll do with all my free time...probably read more :)  I should go back to the gym too...it's been quite a while :-\
