    Do I dog things. I run agility with my young dog and I do Rally with my older dog. I have a retired agility champ who now holds down the couch and cheers on the youngsters.

    I love to read, I found that I can read large print books while on the treadmill and also listen to my mp3 player at the same time, woo-hoo, triple tasking! I also listen to books on CD while driving to work and back, I have the perfect route with no traffic lights or stop signs and very few vehicles on the road, otherwise I'm afraid I'd get too engrossed.
    Also love to garden, can't wait for the annual miracle of planting little tiny seeds and watching them turn into beautiful flowers and wonderful veggies.

    I love to read and knit along with the quilting. Sometimes I am engrossed in just one interest and at other times I fight with which one to do first. Some days I go from one to the other!

    I have several hobbies and it is difficult to devote a lot of time to each on to complete those UFO's. I knit, crochet, needlepoint, crewel embroidery, regular embroidery, counted cross stitch, sewing (clothes), reading and target shooting. Plus I have 4 dogs and a hubbie that keep me busy.

    I also enjoy gardening, scrapbooking and serving in various ways at church. It's challenging these days to try to fit it all in - so much I want to do and there are still only 24 hours in a day.

    You gals are just so talented and busy - I loved reading all the posts. Great pets - rats!!!
    I like to nap most of all (have chronic anemia), read, then photography. Did crochet for 50 years and then carpal tunnel reared it's nasty head. I breed and raise dogs but I guess you really can't call that a hobby - it's more like 100% work! Did endurance and competitive riding up until a couple of years ago as we always had horses .......... Don't really garden because if the deer don't eat everything that I plant, the slugs, voles, bunnies and turkeys do. It took forever for me to smarten up and quit planting just to feed the wildlife ... no, fences don't work! Love my life --------- and it sounds like you all love yours, also!

    I think I read an article about your ladies hunting club. Was it in Southern Living? Or maybe one of the hunting/fishing magazines?

    I love to read and I also have an embroidery machine. Don't use it as much as I use to but I still enjoy making stuff for my grandkids.
