A hobby is an activity or interest that is undertaken for pleasure or relaxation, often in ones spare time.
I am so happy that this definition is so broad. I mean really, anything can be a hobby as long as it is done for pleasure or relaxation!
I personally have had many hobbies over the years as I am sure most of you have as well.
For example, coloring can be a very relaxing hobby. Who needs to stay in the lines?
And then of coarse one of MY favorite hobbies would be sleeping. There just never seems to be enough time!
You need plenty of sleep if you were to pursue the " Swinging upside down " hobby.
Yes swinging upside down takes quite a bit of energy as does the hobby of bike riding !
Some people choose less physical activities as hobbies such as hanging out at church.
And than we have those that choose somewhat silly hobbies such as wearing fruit on their heads..
Dressing up their pets.....
Or even collecting cats!
Some people choose traditional hobbies such as crocheting.
Some people like to cook and bake. And while I really did bake the Blackberry Crunch in the picture, you know that I would never choose cooking or baking as a hobby! If you know me you know that I am not a fan of the kitchen!
Sarah however would probably like baking for a hobby !
Many people love to craft for a hobby. Now that's one that I like! Anyone for a Paper Mache " Monster "?
One of my husbands favorite hobbies besides playing board games and video games is READING! The man reads all of the time! So does his granddaughter.
Speaking of the above mentioned board games, my husband and I often relax over a number of them....
He won this one. But I can hold my own very well thank you!
There are millions of people who like to garden as a hobby. Planting flowers is one of my favorite summertime hobbies.
I also like to play with fire !
Believe it or not, there are many people that actually like to mow for a hobby ! The two below are a perfect example !
So as you can see there are a wide variety of hobbies. I think that you can call anything a hobby as long as it gives you Pleasure , Relaxation and Enjoyment in your spare time.
With that being said I have decided, today, to make weeding my new hobby. I do it often in my spare time. I enjoy it when my yard looks neat and I get great pleasure from a job well done. So I am no longer going to consider weeding a chore. This is what I weeded today.
It is going to be my new hobby. I think it may be the only one that I will have time for this summer !
This is what is waiting for me!
