@beetee123:  I like yoga and group fitness (was originally very scared to go and be embarrassed, but a friend dragged me and I’ve made lots of friends since). I also love to bake and cook.

I knit, read, and write, but for group hobbies, may I suggest looking up a volunteer organization? I volunteer every Wednesday tutoring Aboriginal children in the foster care system, and not only is it incredible rewarding, the tutorers tend to get together often and hang out.

Being my kid’s chauffeur. haha No, really, it’s 6 days a week, every week, of driving him to and from practices, shows, and matches. I do love cooking and baking, which is good because I have a family to feed every day of the week. In the warmer months my hobby is gardening. I spend evenings and weekends pulling weeds, tending my plants, watching our chickens peck about (they are truly entertaining to watch), and enjoying our property.

@jenangeles:  I was really excited when I thought this was simply “I eat, sleep.”

@beetee123:  I didn’t plant any cover crops this year. In the fall I was more focused on planting the 350 bulbs I bought. I am pretty sure that right now my chickens are really wishing I had been a bit more proactive about planting something for them to peck at. haha Next year….

Now is actually a fantastic time to start thinking about what you want to plant. My seed catalogues and I have had some good quality bonding time this winter. I like to sit down by the fire with them and daydream about spring planting. My kid thinks I am weird, but I don’t care. So I’ve been comparing different plant varieties, thinking about what will grow best in the different soil and light conditions around our property, comparing the prices of different retailers, etc., all in an effort to improve over last year’s rather disappointing garden performance. Live and learn.

Have you considered going a meet up group in your area?

My daughter and I keep and breed exotic pets. Snakes, bearded dragons, African fat tailed geckos, leopard geckos, tarantulas, and scorpions. I have a room dedicated to them. They’re basically a part time job (soon to be full time) but we love it. 

I’m also a volunteer with a dachshund rescue, a blogger, gardener, DIYer, gamer, avid reader, and cooking fanatic.

Running, cooking, Pilates, candle making, interior design and skiing.

Except for Pilates and skiing, all my hobbies are solo activites, though. Which I’m fine with – I love alone time!
