What to do with my free time
Now that R has a defined schedule, I have a lot more time to myself. And lately all I've been doing is just sitting down in front of the computer and watching tv-shows for hours or getting on facebook far more often than I should. I need some hobbies. I have a scrapbook set that I was given for my bridal shower (almost two years ago) that has just been sitting in my closet all this time. I used to scrapbook a lot. My grandmother is a professional scrapbooker and she helped me get started about seven years ago. I kept up with it for a while but then just stopped, and I'm not sure why. But since I have the supplies I think I'm going to start up again. I'm going to take out that scrapbook and create a book full of pictures from our wedding. If I really enjoy that maybe I'll continue with it and create a scrapbook dedicated to R and then one of our summer and then one of our winter and then one of our honeymoon and so on and so forth. But I want to come up with some other hobbies. I'm thinking about baking more, BUT only when I can take the goodies somewhere else. If they sat in my house I would eat them all. No joke. I want to start making cakes. My very old friend, Chara Nelson, has started her own cake business (Sweet Contemporary...check it out her blog http://sweetcontemporarystudio.blogspot.com/) and she has really inspired me. Not that I'm going to create my own business or anything (I'm no where near that organized or creative to do that!) but I do want to create some cakes. So that I can make amazing cakes for all my kids birthdays and for other occasions. I'm sure that will take up a lot of my free time. What do you guys do for hobbies????
