Some of us work in offices, some of us work at home; some of us are raising children 24 hours a day, others of us are raising someone else’s children. Even if you’re not getting a paycheck, chances are, most of us are working folks. And when you’re working folk, you don’t always have time to do everything that you want. Which brings me to today’s Lunchtime Poll question…
What hobby do you most enjoy doing when you’ve got a few hours to yourself, away from the responsibilities and demands of your career – whether that career is high-powered executive or constantly patient mother of miniature narcissists who never pick up their damned shoes from the hallways no matter how many times you ask?
For me, it’s cooking. Why, just this weekend, I made a bunch of treats for work on Monday and Tuesday. I’m holding a few long, long training sessions on those days and figured a few sweet treats would improve everyone’s morale. Why, I’ve got chocolate caramels, chocolate custard tarts, peanut butter cups (with dark chocolate peanut butter!), banana bread, and cinnamon-apple cake.
Even though it’s hot and miserable outside right now (90° in Seattle is hot stuff, indeed), I can’t step away from my kitchen when I’ve got some free time to cook.
Well, how about you? Is it mountain climbing? Rowing? Baking? Sewing? Taking hot baths until you’re pruney?
