Flower gardening/landscaping is my "escape!" Nothing relaxes me more than getting outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine and getting my hands full of dirt (and ant bites and blisters and splinters -lol). I can dig and hoe and trim and pull weeds and . . . while my thoughts just drift. It's the best anti-depressant and energy pill available!
My second hobby, which I don't get to do very often, is scrapbooking. I love pictures. I love family memories. I love thinking that one day these books will be treasured by my great-great-grandchildren. (I hope!) I really waaaaay behind right now, but this hobby will have its season when my children are grown. Now, I'm just focusing on making the memories and taking pictures of them.
I also enjoy reading by myself (mostly Christian non-fiction--particularly, John Eldridge and Joyce Meyer and many others) and reading to my children (classic literature during school time and their choice at bedtime--usually means Boxcar Children for my son and Nancy Drew with my daughter). Even though they are old enough to read on their own, and they often do, they still love being read to. I don't pass up that opportunity!
If I haven't said it before, I feel so blessed to be a homeschooling Mom!!

I am a bookaholic or at least that is how our local bookstores think of me. I read a lot and feel that there is never enough time for it. I also enjoy writing. I am currently working on my first novel and have finished a few children's books. I love photography and painting, both are therapeutic and fun. Really anything involving art is pretty awesome. We did a mosaic tile thing this summer with a girlfriend of mine that is an art teacher. We will be doing it as a school project next month.
My other love would be the kitchen. I love, love, love to create food you can fall in love with. Reading cookbooks is calming and makes me happy.
Travel, a massive hobby.
I also enjoy watching Christmas movies, not sure that is a hobby but I do it enough that it could be. :-)
There is so much I love doing, it's hard to pick just one.
Sometimes I feel like I have no real hobbies... I love facebook, cafemom, and occasionally I get on reading kicks but really that's about it for me. :(
