    Like most of our others I enjoy reading (Tess Gerritsen, Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, and Laurell Hamilton), doing Aqua fitness, cooking, cross stitching, walking our dog, gardening (whenever winter decides to leave) and I'm going to start knitting again.

    I've got a lot of hobbies but not a lot of time as I have an almost 3 year old. I like to read, cross stitch (mostly Heaven and Earth designs), knit, crochet, scrapbook, canvas work.

    I love to read and in the summer I walk for at least an hour a day. I live in the country so enjoy all the wildlife and good smells.

    I'm a reader. My husband asked me in December how many books I had read for the year and when I counted it was over 60 books and that was just the ones that I got on the Kindle site, it does not count the books that I got from the library. I try to read at least an hour everyday and usually at night while my husband watches tv, I read!!! Another thing I like to do is going to the casino. But that only happens about once a month!!

    I'm amazed how many of us like the same things I like to read cozy novels, paint, crochet, walk/hike, play with grandkids, photography, making clothes for my neighbors twins, travel.

    OMGosh I like to do lots of things, but have a full time job. So I spend most of my leisure time quilting, and when the weather is OK, DH and I like to take long distance motorcycle rides. Have ridden to New York, Canada, California, and to see our daughter in Seattle.
    Also hand & machine embroider, love our little rescue dogs and Sam the blue &gold macaw (they take lots of time and attention too).
    Can't wait to retire so I can seriously spend more time quilting . . .

    I love hearing people's stories, reading, hiking, swimming, cooking and general sewing.

    Weaving, scrapbooking, general crafts. Dh has a wood shop where he makes alot of different projects. He has made some of the most beautiful wood turned sculptures. He is very gifted. I play with the wood lathe, although he encourages me, I know he is just being sweet! We love to garden and decorate our yard for all the different holidays and seasons.
    We also LOVE to repurpose things. We are always up to something and love every minute we are together. I know a lot of people say "don't you 2 ever get tired of being together all the time?" NO we don't. I know we are blessed to have each other and to retired at our ages. I'm 44 and he is 54. We love doing things together!
