    Hobbies?

    Let's see....... Well, there's hiking, cooking, woodworking, cooking, home improvements, cooking, reading pretty much anything I can get my hands on, gourmet cooking, toying with my Mustang Cobra, cooking, fishing, cooking, anything at-on-in-under the ocean in the warm weather, cooking, eating, and, did I remember to mention, I'm told I'm a helluva great cook!

    Actually, I went out for lunch with Mom and the "kids" today. Portuguese Steak Plate. Thin steak, almost a square foot in size (honest) with fries, hot peppers, roasted garlic, spicy sauce, rice (yep, Portuguese food often comes with two starches) and two fried eggs. With all the crusty Portuguese rolls and butter you could eat. Had a passion fruit soda with it. Finished with a small portion of flan with caramel sauce and a double espresso. Lunch for five was $65.00. Honestly, a real bargain.

    I'll probably skip dinner tonight.

    Tomorrow, I'm teaming up with my Honey to cook. It's either going to be veal and eggplant parmesan OR veal picatta. Creme Brulee for dessert. I'll let you know how it was.

    I don't like bookkeeping.

    Right now, I'm mostly engaged in continuing education, statistics, hiking (just did 14 miles to the top of Carbon Mountain Dam and back), photography, and research for the Were community. Occasionally, I cook (I use to do a lot more but I like to eat more and our present cook is excellent), but I'm the dishwasher in the House so I guess I should add keeping house.
    True enough, my final home is still out there, but this is most certainly my home range and I love it. I love every rock I fall off and tree I trip over. Even when I am close to dying from exhaustion, a beautiful sunset doesn't lose it's power to refresh and inspire me and that, in itself, is enough to save me sometimes.

    Hobbies? Right. I think my work is my main hobby, but unfortunately I have to spend so much time at the computer because of it.
    When I don't work I learn, especially I try to improve my English (I know you don't notice it from my posts here. ).
    I am here, so probably you've guessed that I like the outdoors/survival/first aid/walking as well. I used to run a lot, but lately I had some health issues.

    My main hobby is planted aquariums. beyond that, it's mostly studying language.

    If you can call that a hobby. my job requires arabic, which I no longer care to study, but do anyway.

    Ah... I used to love studying foreign languages...

    Thank you, Rick.
    I forgot to mention that digital nature/travel photography is one of my hobbies.
    I do not upload and share too many pictures, but I can show some pics in case of interest.

    Hm, a fun zombie thread.

    I also have been playing for a few years.

    Mmm so many hobbies. The one that takes the most amount of time is playing the fiddle, I do it every day. I just got my canoe last year but that is looking to be a pretty big hobby also. Henna body art...been doing it for years, make some nice money on it. Aurora and Alaska photography. Camping, backpacking, shooting, fishing. Haven't actually gone hunting yet but that is coming up. Hanging out with my kids and partying with friends. Cooking and baking (especially home made breads in the winter). Dog mushing. Oh yea, gardening... Shoot, I have so many hobbies I barely have time to work hahahha.
