Turns out, I DO HAVE HOBBIES!!

As Lonnie watches a Youtube video to learn how to carve bowls from wood……

I’ll post of photos of our weekend!  We cooked!  We Cinco de Mayo’d! We breakfasted and Lowes’ed. And I planted a little succulent garden instead of just pinning pictures of them all day on Pinterest! I also dug my DSLR out of the closet and put my fun 50mm 1.4 lens on to play with and make things a little more challenging. Blogging really is cheaper than therapy!

Hobbies? Anyone…..? Anyone…..?

Do most people have hobbies? Do you have a hobby? I have things I’m interested in, but I can’t really say I have any true hobbies and I admit, I am a little jealous of people who do! I spend WAY too much time “being bored.”  TBH, I think staring at my phone is my hobby. And that’s not cool.

Last Friday night my husband packed his backpack and a hammock and went off into the woods for the night IN THE RAIN.  AND HE WAS _LOVING IT_ “Bushcrafting,” they call it. And he’s obsessed. He watches Youtube videos. He writes a blog. He buys stuff. He reads stuff. You get the idea. He also goes out every Tuesday night to play Dungeons & Dragons. Like… in public. With, like… no shame at all.  (Hee hee)  He reads like 2 books a week.  He plays Fallout and Far Cry. HE DOES ALL THE THINGS.
And I stare at my phone.
I used to be obsessed with scrapbooking, then photography. Both still interest me, but not like they used to. Makeup and fooling around with makeup is fun every day… I guess that’s my current hobby? Maybe?

I broke out the cake decorating kit I got for Christmas 2 years ago last month.  See you next year!

Is finding a hobby like meeting Mr. Right? It just happens? Or do you keep trying things out to find something that strikes your fancy? The latter method doesn’t seem to be working for me so far as evidenced by the cake decorating kit I used once (I’m fat enough without making freaking cake all the time! Also, I suck (receipts above) LOL)… the scrapbooking stuff I still can’t help buying (scrapbooking is so lame …lol)…. all my old camera lenses that are collecting dust (my camera is old and outdated– plus winter, and what would I even take pictures of that I don’t take with my phone…?)

Maybe my hobby is coming up with excuses not to have a hobby!!!  😀
ACTION TO TAKE: DO A FUN HOBBY-ISH THING THIS WEEK.
