    It’s hard to have hobbies around kids! I do count my exercising as a hobby, but since I got a peloton I have started thinking of it as training more than exercising – training to be strong so I can keep up with my kids! So I have been doing less exercises just to burn calories, but more to try to keep my whole body healthy.

    But in other stuff, I love fiber crafts – knitting and quilting mostly, with some dabbling in crochet, spinning, and weaving. I wish I had more time for these hobbies! I really enjoy them. I also like to read and have read some books you recommend so thanks for your reviews. I used to like cooking more, but now with the kids it feels like more of a chore.

      You are so right! It’s a lot harder with kids. And in terms of cooking–I remember when Michael I (pre kids) used to spend a lot of time trying new recipes and cooking together. It was a joy. Now it’s like, let’s cook something as quickly as possible and eat as quickly as possible. šŸ™

      I am so glad you enjoy the book recommendations!
