What are your hobbies?
I'd say my biggest hobby is Genealogy. I am a amateur history buff, I love to piece together the stories of my ancestors. It's like one big puzzle. You start with a few dates - thinking you will get to find out everything and you end up opening a can of worms. I sure did with my family history. I just hope and pray my sons will embrace all the work I have done - so that they could have an identity that reaches back into history.
I love my computer - Our first computer back in the early 80's was a brand new IBM/DOS that was donated by IBM to my son Michael. They also donated a brand new printer as well. What a thrill that was, when we were told, he was getting a computer. It was hard for all of us to learn. Michael had free lessons from a computer engineer who was a friend of ours. Michael taught me. So in the mid 90's when Apple Performa came out - we made the purchase and the BIG leap to get online. AOL was my first online experience. 6 computers later, I am still in love with anything having to do with computers, the technology and I keep learning. All self-taught.
This will blow you away - I enjoy bible studies. And trying to make sense out of this world.
I love to "make a home." And all that goes into it. I like decorating, painting, sewing, cooking, gardening - making it my sanctuary.
I enjoy reading but lately haven't delved into a good book in a while. My favorite books are of a historical nature.
My dog and cat are my hobbies and I also love to help out when I can at rescues. I do some dog-sitting on the side and consider it more a hobby than anything else.
