    I like to read and now that the weather is getting cooler, I’ll be spending time on the back of a horse. Unfortunately, I also like to surf the web, and often waste my precious free time getting sucked into the electronic black hole.

    I do love a good nap but I also like to read and knit. I’ve actually been doing a lot of knitting these days. Since I quit playing the farming games, I’ve found so much time to do other things. I’m not sure how I played them all. What a complete waste of time.

    I’ve also been putting an awful lot of energy into losing weight.

    Bad timing… I’m just sick and tired of free time. Lol I just can’t think about anything right now.

    I haven’t had much of it in a long time. (Time sneaking away from work to read/troll on the internet doesn’t count.)

    Theoretically, I like to read and learn, play the piano, go for a walk, meditate in the woods, get some personal stuff organized. That’s what I used to do for about an hour each day before and/or after work, when I was at my previous job. Not long before that, I used to write and draw, but somehow that seems to have dried up.

    In reality, nowadays, I waste my free time. Either I sleep or fool around on the internet. If I ever had more than a half hour free at a time, maybe I’d use it for something good.

    I like to work out, but I kinda build that into my daily schedule anyway. I like to read and if it’s a good book, I have a hard time putting it down until it’s done! I also like to be out in my flower beds, although you can’t tell that this year. I like to take the boat out with the family and I really like just sitting on my deck listening to nature.

    At this moment I am reading a lot. I love to bike and watch a good movie.

  7. Laura says:

    Oh, yeah… nothin’ beats a good movie. When I do watch them, it’s usually at night after things have settled down. I almost never have the tv on during the day.

  8. Joy says:

    I have a couple of good movies I’ve been saving. I should watch them. But when I lose my soap, I may need things on hand so I’ve been hording a few.

    I like to be in the yard, mowing, picking weeds, playing with my flowers. My favorite thing to do for down time is fish, or really just being on the boat. It’s so quiet, peaceful just the 3 of us.
