I have to ask how hagiography is creative? Being dense - sorry.[/QUOTE]


Hagiography is sacred icon painting. We paint Byzantine icons on wood, so although imagination is not required because you follow very specific patterns, I still find it creative.

I have a lot of different interests, but I guess the interests I indulge most frequently are drawing, photography, fitness, and soccer, which I've been playing competitively for over 20 years.

I wish I had even one crafty bone in my body. Alas.

And I wish I actually had any hobbies that I could indulge in at the moment.

I love to bake and cook, and to entertain in general, but I very rarely have time.

I love jigsaw puzzles, but they're hard on my hips, so I haven't done one in at least 3 years.

I love crossword puzzles, and I used to do at least one before going to bed every night. Now, I'm either on this forum or watching TV, or watching the live kitten cam, instead of exercising my brain.

I am like spirite, I love to bake and cook, but rarely have time to do it these days.
I also love jigsaw puzzles, but again, no time. I have three years old super active daughter running around i am sure she would like to do puzzles with me and then i would lose at least half of the pieces

back in the past I tried to knit and crotchet and still find it fun, but again, dont have time for it now. I always tell myself that i will go back to it when my kids are older haha

I do run and rock climb in the gym though. I really like physical activities, especially outdoors. Currently I am training for half-marathon so I am running 3 times per week, and on weekends i always run a long run with my friend, i consider it as a hobby yesterday we ran together 12 miles, it was fun!
I also LOVE skiing, but can do it only in season, and since I love in the south, I am kind of limited

Apparently, my hobby is feeding wild animals. Not just Midnight, the wild cat, but deer, birds, squirrels, etc.

Now I understand!! I actually have a friend who does this but over here we call it iconography and hagiography is a study of saints!

I do a lot of artsy/crafty stuff. I used to do pottery and sculpting when I was in school, but I don't have the facilities for that right now. Been trying to get back into drawing. In the summer when I can work outside, I'll do some woodworking... I'd really like to build some furniture for my bedroom this summer, but I don't have a permanent workspace, so it's difficult to do anything complicated or too time consuming.

Folding origami and crochet are also hobbies of mine. We have some great bike trails around here, so I like to go for a ride on the weekends when the weather is nice. I've also been trying to read more and am currently revisiting some of the classics.
