It’s relaxing. Do you have any hobbies wave?

I listen to music once in a while and I like to bird watch.
I used to draw and write poetry.

Did you keep your drawings? Bird watching is neat.

No unfortunately I got rid of most of my artwork.
I had some nice paintings that I did in my 20s too.

I taught myself during quarantine from a series of youtube videos. Would you like me to link them for you? It’s a pretty cheap hobby to maintain. A set of crochet hooks is like $8-12 and yarn can be as cheap as a dollar.

ooo, I used to make jewelry. The only problem was I got cheap stuff from China that rusted. The wire and findings. The beads and stones were ok.

I used to make jewelry. It’s a lot of fun. I gave a bracelet that had torqoise stones in it to a lady who really liked it a lot in the hospital.

This one can get you started. I recommend getting crochet hooks for arthritis. They have thicker rubber grips, and they hurt my hands less. They’re only like a dollar more than good aluminum crochet hooks. This is the cheapest set on Amazon.

Lol I don’t know @roxanna
Crocheting seems too complicated for me to manage.

I’ll see

It looks complicated, but once you have the material in your hands, it makes more sense.

Dad and I see yarn for next to nothing at yard sales all the time.

Jewelry sounds cool. I tried my hand at crocheting. I mess around with knitting once in a while. I love how knitted fabric feels. I’m still learning the two stitches but I pull out some yarn here and there. It really makes the time fly too.

Now my hobbies are birding, vinyl records, pipes and cigars, and I am slowly learning biblical languages.

Also trying my hand at ventriloquism too.
