I love hobbies - you can never be passionate about enough in life, there is just too much life has to offer! But I am the busy mother of 3 young children, one of which is almost 6 months old so they keep my time fairly limited these days! The hobbies that I do manage to make time for are Yoga along with Meditation (I try and get at least 4 days in a week), I also jog, weather permitting (usually at least 3-4 days a week), I am a bit of a Diva in the kitchen, I love to create unusual savory meals for family and friends most of the time using just my imagination and no recipes, LOL! I also love photography and creating digital art from my photographs using fractals. This is a bit complicated to explain, but I use special software that allows me to do this rather easily! We also have 2 dogs, Max and Lucy and I love taking them on brisk walks several times a day! That's the short and easy on me! Thank you for letting me share a little about myself with you!

Do I have this correct in saying that we can come back every day and leave more comments for entries as long as we are actually saying something and not just saying hello?

I just tweeted about it my twitter name is Engelsigh.

Rasberryswrlgirl said...

I just went to the library today. I checked out ten books. A few I went in for, and a few that I just came across. I feel sometimes like some books just call to me. I am involved in several reading challenges this year. One of them is the Support your Local Library challenge. I'll be reading 50 books from my library to complete the challenge.

Rasberryswrlgirl said...

Coming back for my daily entry. I just checked out the weather and my hometown in Florida is colder than where I'm at today. Mom has been calling to rub it in my face that it has been in the 80s there and they have been at the beach. Looks like it's time to call and ask how the beach is (since there is a high of 42 today and Floridians complain it's cold when it hit's 60).

Anna said...

I live in Virginia and it was in the mid 40's today - and that was an improvement!

Rasberryswrlgirl said...

I'm very glad it's the weekend. Work has been crazy this week. I work in an urgent care clinic and we are purging the 07 charts to make room for the 09 charts. What a mess!
