I enjoy pretty much anything with my SO, reading (mostly fantasy for fiction, non-fiction would be history and most of the other things listed here), computer games, antiques, genealogy, and floristry.
I would love to take up riding, but it's too expensive (I rode at Uni where it was subsidized, and it never failed to cheer me up). I would like to start tai chi and a more active martial art; I was an active child but now I find it so hard to start things by myself, it really is one of my biggest flaws! I also used to write creatively, but Uni and illness sapped my inspiration and determination.
On the plus side, I have all the time - where I'm not working, sleeping, cleaning, eating and all those other tedious things we're forced to do - to reach those goals!

I also get lost in TV Tropes, Den ;)

I love hanging out with my 3 dogs and my husband (retired and wheelchair bound after leg amputation and an avid reader of fantasy novels). I keep a vegetable patch and greenhouse and thoroughly enjoy watching wildlife round here. There are lots of seals and otters and I have spent literally hours glued to the window filming them fishing and playing.

I like knitting but my life long passion is for handweaving. I took 5 years break from it when my back made weaving too painful and I sold my loom. I missed it too much and at the end of last year bought myself another handloom. It was a bit of a restoration project (it was built after WW2 and was basically just the wooden carcass) but now it is working again and is much more comfortable than my previous one was. I am just in the process of setting up an etsy shop and also trying to sell locally. I love weaving woolen blankets and thick warm floor rugs.

I do different things in different times of year. At the moment I hang out with my dog, run 1-2 times a week, study Russian, play kantele and recorder, go to kettlebell classes and play volleyball a couple of times per week. In a couple of months I'll add skiing in to my schedule.

Spelman : how are you doing this? I'd like to start. Do you have any suggestions for me?

My favorite things are: reading, watching TV (mostly films, educational, old 60's shows & the crime channel ).
Playing with my cat, doing art, photography, listening to my favorite music, getting together with my very best girlfriend.

During the summer, I love the beach & swimming, going to cultural events, traveling.

^^^ I don't know if it's got a Russian module, but I use Duolingo on my phone to periodically brush up on my German.

It's free and it's highly rated I think it's pretty relaxing, too.

^^^ When I stay on top of it, I'd say well enough to have superficial conversations, but not well enough to go much beyond that. Somewhat better than tourist level, I think.

Without a motivator, though, it's easy for me to fall behind. :)

^^I love Doulingo. They recently added a Greek module which is a blast. I pay a $99 a year to use Yabla.com. I study French and Spanish there. Basically, it's a bunch of TV shows, in language. It helps immensely.

Writing - I'm on the 6th rewrite of my first novel. I've been working on it for 13 years.
Travel with DH.
Reading (SF, Steampunk, and the classics)
TV (The Expanse rocks!)
Uncooking (Raw Vegan food)
Walking the dog in the forest near my home
Languages
Drawing, Painting, Scrapbooking, Commonplace Books
Video Games (I love those time-wasting, hidden-object games)

Once I retire, I'd really like to pick up sewing again. Nail stamping looks like fun too.
