So what will you do when you retire? Let me tell you the day can get scary boring and the winter nights are very, very long. If you sit down to rest for all the day you have actually chosen to make "resting" your hobby. If that was your A choice go to B in a hurry.
I have tried to define for my own satisfaction the meaning of the word hobby...I had always thought it was something we did for fun or recreation but retirement has made me take a hard look at that definition. It just seemed that it should be more serious or something. Then I realized... I am having too much fun...I cannot think of this as a job! I have decided that a hobby is just that...a hobby and should remain a pleasure day after day...even if I don't have a day job to escape from.

The World Largest List of Hobbies honors those everyday or quirky things that people may do...visiting with neighbors, playing poker, yoyoing, throwing boomerangs, watching movies, reading, cloud watching and even dumpster diving. I laughed as I went through the list. However, if it floats your boat and makes you happy, who am I to say no to it. It is your hobby. Have some fun.
My husband and I have several things we do together...golf, travel, photography, wine tasting, crossword puzzles...just to name a few. You are reading my favorite personal hobby...blogging is something I do that keeps my brain alive. The paths I travel down to find the information I want are fascinating. I am also a multimedia artist but for now I am giving it up. If I don't love it I find something else that is equally as satisfying. Who knows, I may be a dumpster diving boomerang thrower at heart and just don't know it yet!
Have a wonderful day!
