What Are My Hobbies Outside Of Work?

Now that you all have heard about my childhood and my professional life, I woke up today thinking this would be a great time to lighten up a bit more. I want to tell you all about the personal hobbies that I enjoy on a daily basis!

As you may have read from my previous blog post about my childhood (which if you have not read it, I suggest you go back and read it please) you know that reading is a big part of my life. When I am not working, I enjoy being able to visit the library close to my home or visit my mum and pa’s home to seek new books. Currently I am reading Julie & Julia. If you do not know, Julia Child’s is an icon in the culinary world as an American cook who wanted to master the art of French cuisine her whole life. Now Julie on the other hand, has a similar passion that Julie had, yet she lives in a different (more modern era). I don’t want to spoil the book (or the movie) too much, so I will just recommend it to you as a highly favorable suggestion.

This brings me to my next hobby, which is growing my own herbs at home. I love cooking at home and prefer it over spending copious amounts of money at restaurants. Now this does not mean that I never dine out at restaurants at all, I just prefer those ventures to not happen every single day. I currently have over 50 pots of herbs including (but not limited to) Rosemary, Italian Parsley, Sage, Purple Basil, Lemon Basil, Chives, and more. There is something very therapeutic about being able to plant seeds and within weeks or months watch them blossom to beautiful delicacies.

My last hobby that I love to partake in is photography. I remember my pa telling me when I was a kid “a picture may say a thousand words by the timeless quote, but what you say about the pictures you take have no word limit.”

That is all that I have for you today and I really hope that you enjoyed reading this blog post. Share with me and the other readers what your favorite hobbies are and why. Until next time, I love you all and have a great day!
