This month’s topic from the Blog-o-Sphere Think Tank is: “What is your favourite past time activity?”

As you can see from the photo at the top of this post, one of my many favorite past time activities is playing with our basset hounds. This was at the end of a ‘photo shoot’; taken about 3 years ago.  You see, when you are at their level, anything is fair game!  They had had enough of the picture taking session and it turned into some wrestling on the floor.  The bassets won!

There is something about spending time with the dogs.  Ours have great personalities.  They know my emotions and during those times when I may feel a little down, at least one of them will come and rest their head on my foot or leg.  Living with a pack of hounds has all sorts of great moments.

It goes without saying, but another one of my favorite past time activities is spending time with Dan.  I know, awwww.  But it’s true.  He’s my best friend and soul mate.

Lately, I’ve been able to resume a regular swimming schedule and that is also at the top of my list.  The morning zen after a swim is one of the best ways I know of to start my day right.

Working with my hands feels like a past time activity, even though making my jewelry is not …it is one of my passions and I love that it affords me an opportunity to do something that feels so relaxing.

My fellow think tank members are sharing their thoughts on this topic too.  Please stop by and find out what some of their favorite past time activities are.
