Now that my shoulder has been repaired, I am back to playing golf more.

My other hobbies are making jewelry, stained glass, and antique shopping.

I also have a full shop in my garage and woodwork, less so now than before.

What are yours?

I did enjoy Archery but have lapsed lately. I think I will take it up again next spring.
I love writing, as you all know. icon_smile
I also have a love of all things miniature, the more detailed the better.
To that end, I made a model of a future scene from my 'Nurses' tale. I was so pleased with it that I have begun another. kekekegay

Well, writing and reading for starters. Hanging out on forums. Biking, but this being Southern Ontario, that's seasonal.

I like to write something a little eerie or spooky for Hallowe'en every year. "Haunting" is what I went for this year.

Read and do crossword puzzles. Or jigsaw puzzles when I visit a certain friend. That is because she has no TV, no internet connection, and there isn't a lot to do. We just learned the game Quiddler which was fun. Lots of just sipping wine or beer and doing puzzles and games. We did go to a local theater group for a play. Nice change of pace (but hard with no computer).

I cook a lot, though more out of daily necessity. I bake and decorate birthday and wedding cakes.
I weld and plasma cut things in metal. I ride motorbikes and less often, our horses. I really enjoy archery, both recurve and compound. I sew... I love creating
I also like playing words with friends.

I used to as a teen (nothing fancy, just pencil sketches of my pets and nature as well as drawings of spaceships and other s-f stuff). Probably should take it up again. Would be a nice, meditative activity.

Compound?? no
I prefer the recurve all day long. It feels more down to earth, more... traditional. Personal preference of course but all those pullies and cams just don't feel right to me. dontknow

I have several interests. To keep my mind active I like to do Sudoku and Cryptogram puzzles.

My other outlet is to work with my hands. It's more of a DIY nature. Fixing things instead of replace them as needed. Doing my own routine maintenance on our cars.

I do like going to estate auctions. If not to buy, just to look around. It's amazing the bargains you might find. But I have been out to many of them recently.

I also enjoy turning fine woods into saw dust in my workshop. kekekegay

You are both wet behind the ears...

A crossbow or slingbow is more accurate and more fun...

As I said, I enjoy both disiplines. The compound bow may not be the purists choice, but then modern recurve bows aren't exactly traditional anymore either. Both have their challenges and both are highly enjoyable to me... and I am a very good shot. Lol.

A slingbow can be carried around in your back pocket. Try using one. You'll enjoy. I do like the recurve because it is traditional, but the compound is easier on the shoulders.

Really? Then can you tell me what happens to a 1961 Buick LeSabre driving east at 80 MPH when it meets a black hole?

I like to swim, everyday if poss. Fashion is my hobby, my passion, my life, except for my horses. Eventer moi, the lunatic fringe of equestrian life. Also I sail when I can and when I'm in the right place. Suffer from accute oniochalasia... at the pre-hoarder stage laughing8
