      hey I am spare time if I have any I just love to catch up on my sleep. Sleeping rejuvenates me totally and being a new mother this is something that clears my head as well. Yeah I do love watching movies as well but only if the little one is sleeping is gone to her granny’s place. But while she is sleeping I sleep beside her because it totally is a stress buster for me.

    Well, coletta I also like to spend my time with my children going to the park or the movies or just playing games, but I also enjoy my time as well. I read alot, I like to do puzzles and brain teasers. I write poetry, and I enjoy a ladies night out from time to time. What do you do when you don't have your children?

  3. coletta7 profile image59
    coletta7posted 11 years ago

    I also like to get into me. And do some catching up on things I may have lacked on because of being busy with my children, so I have to always keep some kind of" balance between the two"

    I'm into lots of things, from gardening in my jungle to my aquarium and pond to being with my grandkids, especially on long walks through the woods.  They call it their great adventures.  I enjoy making my home more usable, inside and out.  And of course I love being with my wife.

      That reminds me of my Army years back in the 80's & 90's.  I enjoyed rifle cleaning as well as the opportunity to use them.  Of course, not so much in battle.

    It may seem off the wall but my in my available time I go and visit either the sick in the hospitals or the elderly in rest homes and care facilities.  I hardly every know who they are but feel my visits help lift their spirits and in turn lift my own as well.  It's amazing what a few minutes with a lonely person can do for their morale.

    I download and watch movies for free. I re-read through research documentation, play online games at Pogo.com and spend quite a bit of time in the forums, such as now.

    Some times, I will even tinker with hand-writing thoughts about new hubs on paper. Usually, my hubs are from my head mostly.

    In my spare time, I love to get out my guitar and sing and play, sometimes for a couple of hours,although now I can't do it as often as I would like to . I am getting ready to play and sing Christmas songs and carols at the Annual Christmas Party, that we hold each year for the older folk at a couple of the local Retirement Villages. It is wonderful to see the smiles spread across their faces when they hear the Christmas Carols sung. I don't know about anyone else, but there is something about carols at Christmas Time, that makes you just want to keep singing and singing them. It really is a lovely way to spend the day bringing joy to people less fortunate than yourself. What a thrill it is. Nothing compares to it. BB

    I don't have much spare time and want to do so much!

    I fiddle and sing in a West Gallery quire. 2-3 rehearsals per month, gigs as we can get them. Since I moved to Wales, it's a three hour drive each way, getting back home after 1am. People think I'm insane, but it means a lot.

    I go to Welsh class for 2 hours each week.

    In addition, when I get time I like to go geocaching, make things for swaps on Swapbot, go to Bookcrossing meetups, read and SLEEP.
