Some hobbies I enjoy are gardening and tinkering in my shop. I have been working, for the past several years, on developing a way to have a year round garden. It has been a challenge and if last night’s hard freeze is any indication, it proved that I still have a long way to go. In the summer months I enjoy working in our vegetable garden and with my orchids and other tropical plants. As the weather turns colder, I work very hard just keeping my tropical plants alive and well.
As far as “tinkering” in my shop goes, let’s just say that encompasses a great many things! This would include, but is not limited to, listening to loud music, working on my computer, projects for the house or just messing with my three large dogs. In the summer months the shop is a beehive of activity without the time consuming organization constraints of a beehive. Summer weather, travel, kids and life in general hamper efforts to keep the shop very well organized. Historically, during the winter months, I’ve attempted to rein in the chaos and get everything organized. I say “historically” because now I have this new time consuming inside hobby…it’s called “writing.”
