    Running my businesses takes most of my time, but these are my ‘hobbies’

    slacklining
    mountain biking and hiking
    keeping myself and my dogs active
    starting to read Buddhist ideas

    I am very much a “home body” – but being outside in the fresh air is mandatory

    traveling never been my thing –

    no offense but all the TV and screen time and being online can’t be good for you. this is one reason I think you are comparing yourself to others. you need to find out more about us, because it is validation to you that you matter or belong, or you’ve been accepted (likes, followers, etc)

    “Eye strain and headaches. Insomnia and poor sleep. Social media addiction, because social media tools can be psychologically detrimental — with more people seeking external validation that leads to more depression and self-confidence issues.” – from Scripps.org

    you need to like YOU for YOU – not because we will like you, that shouldn’t matter. think about it, if you (or me) fell off the face of the planet NO ONE ON THIS SITE would lose any sleep. its just the way it is.

    p.s. your real hobbies should include your family.

    I grow vegetables in a garden that is in buckets, because the soil here is not good for growing in. By growing in buckets, I can easily move any plant that is not getting proper light, or sun. I can rescue any plant burning in the sun and heat. Immortal Pirate has built me a really great greenhouse for my gardening.

    I also built a seaside line-up of stores and buildings in miniature with furnishings that can be seen through every window. A string of lights go from building to building to light each window. This is on the “dock” on the other side of the Pirate Ship that Immortal Pirate built —- that almost fills the whole dining room.

        @Fletch Everything hates the heat. Sooooo, the growing season cannot last into the Summer months. In “normal” places, like California, planting season is in February, or March. In Arizona, anything planted in March will burn up, dry up, and die in the April and June heat. August is the magic Arizona planting month here. Seeds planted in August will be able to grow and mature. Planting in August will give me a harvest in December. I will also get a September planting, to be harvested in January. Then, I get an October planting that can be harvested in February. I can squeeze in one more planting in October, for harvesting in March and April. Then the sun gets too hot for anything to grow. Having a Greenhouse makes it nice for growing all year around, as long as I protect the plants from the sun.

        In June, I harvest the last of all vegetables. I paint the bottom of the fruit trees with white paint to protect them from burning in the Summer sun. I also make a cover of mesh cloth to help shade and protect the fruit trees from burning in the sun. The fruit trees flower in January, leaf out in February, start fruit in March, and have to be protected from the sun if the fruit has not ripened by June. My trees are in those half wine cask planters. That limits how tall they can grow, but the neighbors get all hinkity-pickity if the trees are over 6 feet high —- and God forbid, hang over on their side of the fence with (insert dramatic music here) fruit that they can pick from their side. My trees are: Two different avocado trees, navel orange, a bitter orange, fig, plum, lemon, peach, apricot, and nectarine. I keep them pruned to keep them small. I have rows of tomato plants that give tomatoes all year long. They are in double-buckets along the drip line of the roof and in the shade, so the heat will not burn them. I have lines of asparagus in pots, in a cage, that give asparagus sprouts all year long. However, I need to protect them from drying out in the sun and will construct an awning over them. Then I can sing this song, as I harvest asparagus: ” This is the awning of the cage of asparagus, the cage of asparagus. As-par-a-gus!”

    Evidently, I post pictures sideways.

    In my seaside village, my favorite little shop is the bakery, where I have teeny-tiny bakery goods displayed in the window.

      @Fletch I see that Immortal Pirate is not answering this. I am sure it is because with all his pre-surgical tests, he is not even visiting SoulSequel. A watch is not something he would try to build. A watch is not a blacksmithing project, nor is it a carpentry project. He has to wear reading glasses since his operation on his eyes. His far sight is 20/20 but he needs reading glasses for reading. He doesn’t do small intricate work required in watchmaking. He builds with wood. He builds stringed instruments, like a violin and guitars.

      @Fletch No, I’ve never tried building a watch…although I have stood watch many times. Mid-watch aboard ship, fire watch when our ship was in dry dock and ship yard welders were working, and suicide watch when I worked at the prison. Time (and time pieces) have relatively little meaning to immortals…aside from navigation, where a time piece is only a tool to facilitate accurate navigation and relative speed.
