This & That Including What Ails

Do I Have Hobbies?

on April 5, 2020

I used to be able to travel once a year to a country I like and do winter fishing or squid jigging.

But with the recent surgeries, I feel it is still not timely for me to be doing this as lugging luggage and or throwing handlines and reeling in fishes may be a challenge for my shoulder just yet.

I still have a penchant for crosswords and am finding it harder to be getting those in a hardcopy book form.

Yes, I know there are digital crosswords, but I like the feeling of erasing the mistakes and using my mechanical pencil to write in the letters.

Digital crosswords do not seem to give me that kick of using a pencil and eraser!

I think the time will come for the death of pencils and erasers! Victims of change.

Collecting Garfields is not possible as they are quite extinct as kids these days, play more on digital games and are not the squooshy hugging type fellas.

I think in time to come, the teddy bear or soft toys will also be victims of the digital world.

Gardening is not for me. I have no green thumbs and whatever I touch do die. The only surviving plant is my money plant and it takes a lot of my time to ensure it lives a little longer.

So realistically, my hobbies are now vegetating on marble floor and watching soaps…at least till my surgically operated foot is well enough for me to go back to power walks and seeing the flora and fauna of the gardens!
