Booking Through Thursday: But, Enough About Books

Okay, even I can’t read ALL the time, so I’m guessing that you folks might voluntarily shut the covers from time to time as well… What else do you do with your leisure to pass the time? Walk the dog? Knit? Run marathons? Construct grandfather clocks? Collect eggshells?
I have to admit ... not a great deal. I’d like to be able to say learning to make my own clothes, but the sewing machine died on Tuesday. I’ve been known to dabble in all sorts of creative endeavours - painting, drawing, embroidery, knitting, crochet, jewellery-making, etc, but not much lately. (Although I must remember to hunt up some shawl patterns before it starts turning cool.) I do (or try to do) the puzzles in the Courier-Mail every day. I do watch television, but I usually read while doing so; and starting tonight (technically now last night) I make the occasional valiant attempt to make sense of Lost. And I’m starting my preparations for this year’s NaNoWriMo.


  1. I do some sewing and crafts myself but there is just not enough time in the day to do it all. Happy BTT!

  2. I do cross stitch while watching TV. And I gave up on Lost a long time ago!
    Love your list - lots of creative endeavours :)

  3. I watch Lost too. I'm usually at least one episode behind since we record the show and watch it later.

    I wish I was as creative and crafty as you are. I've tried my hand at some but always end up losing patience with my slow progress. I need to be kinder to myself, I think. :-)

  4. This week's BTT question was really fun. It's interesting to see what everyone likes doing with the rest of their free time.
