    Both sound like lovely pursuits, knm! Watercolor, acrylic paint? I'll bet the herb garden is pretty. Hope it flourishes!

    I did an art journal page over the last couple of days.

    Hello! This is an old thread but I thought I can share my new hobby of drawing/painting and starting a humble indoor herb garden

    i like to make jewelry, but it's getting hard to hold on to the small beads...or even the large ones. it seems my "fingerprints" are worn off. i guess it's part of getting old, lol. i made some little stretchy bracelets tonight for my granddaughters..just simple things for their school colors.

    I have a hard time starting on craft projects, but when I do, I find them lovely and soothing. I'm the furthest thing from an artist, but I love acrylic paint and the variety of colors. And if I do paint something, I enjoy the touch factor--what it feels like when it's done.

    I saw this thread and it caught my attention immediately as it seems like everybody around me is suggesting I get into hobbies. I left them behind somewhere. Anyway, I was given 2 small sets of acrylics and a latchhook kit. Those are two things that I have loved for many years but have not had the motivation to actually do. Maybe reading hear will help me get back too them

    Sounds like a fun weekend, Emily :orflower: I imagine the weiner dog races would be super cute if they wore those little superhero outfits. LOL :westie: :paw:

    Yes, Gatlinburg is a beautiful area, for sure.

    Brina, I have been to Dollywood! It was years ago, though. There's one part of it that is dedicated to her childhood history. (I seem to remember something like a replica of the house she grew up in...it was tiny.) We also went to the Grand Ole Opry. The funny thing was that I didn't care for country music at the time (I was in high school) but I did enjoy the live music and atmosphere a lot.

    Actually, I can't believe when I think back on my high school days, I HATED country music, bananas, mexican food, cheese and milk! Unbelievable! Now I adore mexican food (Tex-Mex), can't do without cheese :cookie: , certainly enjoy bananas (when they are first ripe...after they get spots they are too old for me), and my favorite music group is Point of Grace (country flair). Milk, however, remains undrinkable!:ill: It's ok when it's in something, but I can't drink it by itself without gagging.

    Good pastime, Nane! :orflower: I don't even own a bike. In fact, I wonder if I could even ride one again. The only bike I've ridden in the last 32 years has been a stationary one at Planet Fitness. LOL. Glad you are getting access to a pool as well, Brina. I love swimming, too, but don't get much opportunity to go to the community center. I don't want to go to the neighborhood pool. The last thing I need is for a student to see me in my bathing suit! :panda:


    So tonight I enjoyed watching So You Think You Can Dance on my DVR. Those dancers are amazing! Love that show.

    And another funny little thing, I have a monitor in my arm that checks my blood sugar. It stays in my arm for 14 days at a time. (It's awesome b/c I don't have to prick my fingers to test anymore. Just swipe w/ my iPhone.) Anyway, my cat decided it was strange and that it should not be on my arm. It needed to be killed. LOL. So she has been carefully swatting at it. Not sure if she is saving my life or thinks I'm a toy. LOL :laugh2::cat_2:

    it makes summer so much nicer when you can go for a swim just like that. Here they even give you half of the fee back when you stay less than 2h... which is perfect for a quick swim.
    Hopefully, Brina, by next summer you'll be able to 'just' go and enjoy.

    reminds me Nane.. my town is building a new aquatic centre, i think next year it will be finished and opened, im so excited, cause its a real pain to get to the pool in the next town, its an annoyingly long drive just for a swim.

    My current favorite past time is going swimming... biking there- swimming- biking home. Most awesome in the evening.

    I didn't actually find anything. It was really stormy yesterday morning, so when I went in the afternoon, a lot of folks had not opened up their tents. But I went back this afternoon and it everything was opened and it was packed. The weather was perfect today. It's only a couple blocks from my house, so I just am able to walk up. As a matter of fact a lot of people who come park by my house and even farther down. So I'm lucky I don't have to deal with parking! lol. I saw a few things that I liked, but nothing that really fit with what I was looking for. But still fun to look.

    Today they had extra things like a car show, a weiner dog race, and a petting zoo as well, so lots of folks with kids come out.

    I love Gatlinburg area Star. Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, that area is just beautiful really. It's been years since I've been there though.
