    My main "thing" is my farm, which includes the rabbits, chickens, horses, and pig. But i'm also an avid gamer (which is quite evident in the names of my Cochins and Phoenix chickens, and actually my username), artist, and when I can be, angler.

    My other hobbies besides my animals are braiding my husbands back hairs, finding lost socks in the laundry and figuring out what the lumps of molding stuff in the kids school bags once was.

    I read, knit, do embroidery, or make wreaths with dried plant materials and silk flowers.

    My bible first, then my farm. My other hobby is honing my ability to be the biggest penny pincher in the family. I can clip 30 coupons per minute [​IMG] JK..but I do actually like to find good deals, and being the mom...that's my business to get more bang for the buck, so I try to be the best at it [​IMG] Beyond that BYC is my biggest time consumer. I get interested in things and absorb myself till I feel like I can go toe to toe with anybody on the subject in conversation. I just like knowing stuff....I'm a geek like that [​IMG] currently I'm focusing on becoming a bigger chicken geek [​IMG]

    I am a figure skater. (NOT elite level ar anything too glamorous! [​IMG]) Lessons and practice take up most of my free time. I love hanging out with DH and the chickens... hiking... eating good food that I did not have to cook (does that count as a hobby?), and I always have my nose in a book.

    Besides my Chickens and Ducks, I enjoy woodworking, decorative painting, photography, paper and digital scrapbooking, cardmaking. I also do Digital Painted Portraits of People and Animals. This year I finally learned canning and had a blast, can't wait to pick the peaches and plums from my trees this year :) I love coming to BYC and reading about everyone's adventures with their beloved critters :)

    Reading, cooking- got to do something with those mean roos (my poor Predator!), teaching math(this is a one-sided enthusiasm), and holding quacking ducks(same annex as math)

    I would have put down "Bible reading," but that's not really a hobby-it's a way of life!
