Day 19- A talent/hobby
I’m pretty amazed at myself for having made it this far through 30 Days About Me! Have you joined in on the fun? Stop over at Toni’s and check out the other participants!
The hobby that I practice the most is photography. Photography is what got me interested in blogging, and blogging is why I am here! You can see my photography from over the past few years on my Photos by MAK blog.
I always loved taking pictures, however, our time living in Orlando gave me so many opportunities to do what I loved. There was so much to see and do that cost us little out of pocket (since we had annual passes to Sea World and Disney), so while Tara had fun on the rides, I had fun finding different perspectives on the things around us. Wildlife was a bit more interesting there too – alligators, turtles, armadillos, and more types of birds than I can name!
There were times when Tara said I liked my camera more than her! I feel over the past few months, I have not engaged in this hobby as much as I like. I have been feeling less than inspired. I need that one good event or outing to get my inspiration back.
I have tried many crafts over the years. I have completed quite a few counted cross stitch pieces. That required total concentration and once I was a mom, I never felt I had enough uninterrupted time! I still have pieces I would like to complete (before the fabric turns to dust!)
I’m just not a really “crafty” artistic person I guess. I admire people who can pick up a piece of fabric, or a bowl from a flea market and make something cool!
I like to cook too, but lately I’m uninspired in that area as well. That has more to do with the people in my household. Two different ends of the spectrum when it comes to likes and dislikes of food!
I’m beginning to think that “social media” is my new hobby!
What do you do in your spare time that makes you happy?
