Hobby Ideas You Will Like
What is your favorite past time? Hobby enthusiasts know
that spare time is not to be "spent" but savored. If you
have a past time you enjoy, you will never look at your
spare time in the same way again. If you're not sure what
past time hobby you would enjoy, here are some suggestions.
Many people listen to music as a favorite past time. There
is much you can learn about any style of music. You can
learn composers, famous melodies, and all about performers
past and present. You can develop sophisticated tastes in
jazz or classical music or collect a large assortment of
CD's. Music makes a great past time hobby.
A lot of people love animals. Pets of all sorts can become
your hobby. Perhaps you enjoy watching birds. If you have
trouble finding them in the trees to watch, maybe you'd like

is one thing, but breeding and raising show dogs is
something else entirely. Show dogs may require a bit of an
investment, but many puppies are free. There is also the
aspect of training a dog in obedience. Dogs give a lot of
love back to their owners, too, so if you start a past time
hobby of caring for a dog, you will never be lonely.
However, dogs require quite a bit of work and attention,
especially when they are being trained, so keeping dogs is
not for everyone.
Bicycles can become your favorite past time. Hobby
bicyclists are becoming more and more common to see cycling
along lesser traveled highways seeing the countryside up
close and personal. Bicycling requires a helmet and suitable
clothes as well as a small tool kit for roadside repairs. Or
maybe you would enjoy cycling on a smaller scale, simply
taking fun rides with your family. The choice is yours.
The world is full of interesting things to learn and do.
Don't merely sit back and watch TV. Get interested in a past
time hobby. It's good for your mind. In fact, it might even
keep you from going senile in your old age, if you stay
active in a past time hobby. And it's a good example to our
kids and grandkids if we spend our time doing something
