Today I ended up sleeping off and on. I did get the laundry going and the turkey roasted.
I see a nice turkey soup in my future. Potatoes, carrots, the works!
As I was laying around feeling not so good, I wondered what it would be like to have a real hobby. I mean, I read, blog, watch movies, walk and sometimes craft, but I don’t have a real hobby.
Then the reality of my finances dawned on me and its like… Oh yeah, that would pretty much dampen any real chance of starting a hobby.
I found the following web site with some pretty good ideas:
The first suggestion is writing. I know I don’t write well, but I have always loved it. I was “into” screenwriting for a bit. A guy actually filmed one of my shorts and I wrote some dialogue for him for another project that he was working on. I wrote from the perspective of an old craggy oak tree. 😉 Yeah, a tree. Exciting stuff.
That was fun, but everyone and their brother is writing a screenplay in L.A. and its just so cliché. Not only that, at my age, I think the edge is lost. However, I do have a couple, okay, one story I started a long time ago that might be worth revisiting at some point. But talk about a time suck. I could sit for eight hours and not even come up for air. I don’t have that kind of time.
If I can find a hobby it will have to fit my lifestyle. It can’t cost too much money, take up room, take too long, etc.

I think it might be a good idea to get out of my head for a while. Do something for me! Ya know?
