    Alright guys what do you all do to pass your time...besides your goaties, that is?? Lol!!! What are your hobbies? Feel free to share them here in this thread...

    Well, in my 'free time'...if there really is such a thing as "free" time...Lol! I enjoy drawing...er...doodling, as I prefer to call it now a days, as I am not nearly as 'practiced' as I used to be, when I did seem to have more 'time on my hands' for this kind of stuff...haha...

    I also love photography...I just got a new camera this fall a Canon Rebel XT, which I am still having fun fiddling around with; I can't wait until I really figure it out, so I can get some even better photos with it...

    I love to write...poetry, short stories...etc...you can probably see the evidence of my 'writing skills' in some of my threads; namely Jade's recent thread, and Faith's thread...I loved Journalism in High School...Lol. I also love to read...I guess that would go hand in hand with writing huh? Lol!

    I also consider my love of Youth Ministry one of my favorite "past times" because every chance I get, I want to be with them; 'job related' or not...I just love being with youth...Geuss that's when you know you have chosen the right profession...course, I wish I had more time to spend with the kids, there's just not enough time in the day\week...:(

    Some of my other favorite past times are watching CSI (the original), hiking, playing with my dogs, and playing practical jokes...especially scaring people...I know, I'm a terrible person...Lol!

    Lets see..........I love to read-although I haven't been in the reading mood lately. I also like to show my goats. And I love to listen to music and spend time outside enjoying the sunny days. And I love to listen to music-mainly country and some soft rock. This time of year I love listening to Christmas music:).

    My past times are my goats, hunting, or just shooting my bow, studying about goats, and reading this forum.

    I carved these ducks using old golf club drivers as the body
    and then just carving and attaching the heads.

    In my pastime, I like to read, knit, make jewelry(like wire and macrame) also ride our ATV, walk around outside, target shoot, hang out with the goats, and other relaxing things :D

    I used to love to read, but school makes it not fun anymore with reading logs ( we have to write summarys four times a week and are forced to read a specific time each week ).

    Right now I love studing the Bible, walkig around the woods, I'm going to get a license for hunting soon!, I love hanging out with friends, listening to music, and hanging out with my animals.

    I REALLY like this thread! Let's see............I like to sketch, read, spend time with my animals, take photographs, work on PhotoFiltre, be on here LOL, play flute, piccolo, and guitar (and about any other instrument I can get my hands on!), and show my animals! I may add to this later. Sorry that I don't have any examples of my sketches, but my idiotic scanner refuses to work! :x

    That's okay...my scanner disappointed me by not scanning as well as I thought it would...it's a new printer that we have in our living room...I had to do lots of mods on the drawings I posted; the first one IS actually colored, but I had to change it to black and white for it to actually show up decently off the scan...Lol!!! Gotta love technology sometimes!!! :roll: :lol:

    Thanks! :oops: I wish I had a copy of my best one that I ever did though. It was so cool, but I gave it to my grandpa for his birthday, got it framed and everything. My mom had asked me to do one so I did it the night before and it was the best I ever did. I didn't even have any outlines on it.
