The Eyes Have It


Question #9 – What is your hobby and how did you learn to do it?

Hobbies are a great way to spend free time doing something you really love. Some people are even able to make a living with their hobby full-time. I know I would love to! Alas, the pay for me has always been more about the reward I get doing it than from any money I might receive. But hey, I’d never refuse the offer!
I love to write so I spend the majority of my day doing so. And when I’m not writing, I’m thinking about what I’ll write next. 🙂 Even now I’m at the hair salon and instead of reading the latest magazine, I’m writing this post because I can! 🙂

You can learn a lot about someone just by discovering their hobbies.

My grandmother loved to sew, and she was good at it. She taught herself when she was a young girl. Amazingly, she never needed a pattern which proves it was truly a gift. But she didn’t think it was such a big deal because it came so easily to her. Hobbies are like that. We tend to excel at those things we love doing. Or maybe it’s because we love doing it, so we practice and develop a skill for it quicker. At any rate, hobbies are a great question to ask your older relatives. And I have a sneaking suspicion you’ll see a sparkle come to their eyes as they answer you!

  1. Hobbies are a great way to spend time with yourself and with others, to have fun and learn something new. I think they are also important for our health. Thanks for article Debi.

  2. Wow! Grammas are awesome like that 😀 Mine taught me how to crochet! Sewing came to me naturally and that one is my favorite hobby. I also learned to cross stitch at an early age. Another thing I love is scrabbooking. I prefer digital as I love working with graphics. But there is just something about playing with glue, paper, tape, stickers, grommets, glitter … yeah, I like scrapbooking! LOL

    Stopping by from the UBC! Have a great week!

  3. I know my parents’ hobbies. They have defined them in some ways. Mine are sketchier (is that a word) to figure out. What I like to do to unwind – play Dr. Mario with my husband. It’s a little embarrassing, but it’s true. I have the tendonitis to prove it.
