My favorite thing to do, by far, is camping. I lived most of my life in Canada, and now I live in Australia. My wife is an Aussie, and camping is the way we explore her country together. I have learned to truly love and appreciate Australia through those experiences.
I used to have hobbies... Reading, Cooking, European Martial Arts, and Homebrewing. Nowdays... I get to read so rarely that I've become very picky about what I'm willing to even start. Cooking isn't a hobby anymore, it's part of my "job." I haven't taken out a sword for any purpose other than cleaning it in almost two years. I'm still brewing, but more on a small batch for competition scale than as a fun pastime. I used to be an Artist, dedicating a minimum of six hours in my studio or on my sketch book every day, but now it's more a hobby I guess.
Does anyone have any suggestions for good hobbies for stay at home parents?
P.S. I do still love to cook, and create tasty meals for my family, but I can't do as much experimenting as I used to.
I wasn't going to mention this, but a past hobby of mine was drawing difficult mazes. I drew most of them in the late 1970's to early 80's, with the last one back in 1996. Lately I've been thinking about getting back into it.
The reason I mention this is that I have been seeing banner ads for an art site where I have two of my mazes for sale. Of all the art that that site sells, the ads I see just so happen to feature my large maze (Mammoth Maze 5). I guess I was somehow targeted with that ad via browser cookies, but I'm curious if anyone else has seen the ad.
