    Naane vettiya yosikaren according to many relatives. Idhuley you vera scratching minda? Guess what...the day it started paying most of them got shut. My husband has always appreciated and helped me in many ways for this. It could very irritating to deal with a wife whose idea of vacation is going to nagaland without planning to stay in a five star resort and someone who wants to sample local food however weird it might be. I have made him walk for many many miles in small villages in Karaikudi in search of the authentic chettiyar pathiram, to taste the perfect aachi kuzhi paniyaram and he has never cribbed.



    Translation: Already am being blamed as useless hobby by many relatives. did I also make your mind spin?

    Hey priya.. nice thread.. I am a post graduate in Chemistry but leading a house wife life.. I dont want to sit idle.. so started browsing net in the early days of my marriage not knowing what to do.. then came to know about paper quilling.. which is quite easy & fun to do.. later i started crocheting.. Since my childhood I am passionate about music.. but didnt get chance to learn.. Now i am learning veena so that my 1 1/2 year kid will have interest in music.. I go to veena classes on week ends... I started learning basics of computer online.. Now i am a busy crafty house wife..

    Dear Priya, here are some things that I do during the day.

    I love browsing sites for good deals.. though i don't buy, i help friends know the deal so they cud get good items for a lower price. items like watches, jewellery sets, kitchen tools, clothes, handbags etc.

    I maintain a blog posting my cooking trysts.

    I love food. I constantly keep checking out other cooking blogs.

    I'm draw designs on paper, color them, decorate my walls. My hall is completely designed by me with my drawings and photos :). I used up calendar photos to design one side of my wall.

    I go to gym. I'm fighting the bulge for so long now.

    I started collecting swagbucks these days.

    Indusladies keeps me hooked all the time.

    I read.

    I have pretty much summed it all. But I'm enjoying all these recently, after quitting work and donning the homemaker hat! Dunno if its possible to do all these if i start back to work.

    hi op!
    nice thread!
    sometimes we all dont realise what our hobbies are , so dont worry!
    say i like reading and writing but i dont review books:rotfl
    on a serious note , i like music and im very passionate about it , specially old hindi film music, i collect lot of old cds and records and when i listen to a particular song its not just song but i like to know who wrote it , who composed the music and who sang it.
    besides that since i have been travelling all my life with my family since childhood , i am very fond of travelling, i like to see new places and not only the place i like to know culture and language of the place.like when i was student and was posted in himachal for few days in internship , i saw a lot of interior himachal.
    so i can say my hobbies are reading , writing , music and travelling !

    With working full time, taking care of toddler and managing house...i dont get much time to relax but i love cooking and all the time i try different recipes (all cuisines) and create my own too...Cooking is like therapy to me apart from listening to music. Other than that; I love drawing, embroidery, creating mehndi designs, doing make-up, dancing etc but life is so hectic now that i hardly get time to do them :)

    I love drawing, cooking, trying out new recipies, music especially the old hindi and tamil songs, watching TV. during teenage days I used to make purses, embroidery, crochet , tatting, sweaters etc, now no patience to do them. I also like reading books , earlier used to read a lot but now read the threads in IL.

    After joining IL my hobby is writing in IL especially in snippets, like to post everyday , writing blogs, also watch TV simultaneously.
