Hobbies, What's yours? (87)

When I was about 10 years old my mother took me with her to see a lawyer. Something about getting more child support from my dad as far as I know. While we were there the lawyer asked me if I collect stamps as he showed me a small batch of used stamps that he tore off his mail. I said no and he said too bad, I was going to give these to you if you did. Damn! I thought. I should've said yes, there might be some unused ones in that pile. All I could think of on our way home was that little pile of stamps. Well, I decided to start collecting stamps so that if & when my mom went back to see the lawyer I could get the stamps. That event turned into a life long passion for collecting stamps.

I lived with my granny, she taught me to bake, knit and crochet, and I still doing all 3, i teach it voluntarily, I have a class of 25 age range from 60 to 92 years, I call it “the knit and b*tch group!!” It’s great therapy for all. I try each month to have a project for my ladies to do, like hats for the homeless, hug blankets for the hospice, and cardigans for prem babies.

I used to knit, but somehow didn't have time for it for the last 20 years. Bought some yarn a couple of months ago and started a shawl. Managed 4 rows laugh

Nowadays, kayak paddling and Qigong are two passions of mine. Not sure whether you can call it hobby, but it's definitely life style.

For the last 6 years or so I have been collecting data on my environment such as morning temp, Gigs of usage on my phone, as well as battery %, weather, like rain or snow etc, the height of the water in my well (stopped that about a year ago, and my electric meter reading. I've learned some interesting facts from doing this such as if I'm on the verge of my well getting critically low like after a drought or long spell of no rain, am I about to run out of water? I also document the Profit & loss of my investments which helps me decide my next move in the market. (buy, sell or hold).
