Hobby Ideas : A Favorite Past Time

About Hobby Ideas

Even amateur astronomers have other hobbies they engage in from time to time, but as any hobby enthusiast will tell you, spare time is not to be "spent" but savored.

If you have a past time you enjoy, you will never look at your spare time in the same way again. If you're not sure what past time hobby you would enjoy, here are some suggestions.

Many people listen to music as a favorite past time. There is much you can learn about any style of music. You can learn composers, famous melodies, and all about performers past and present. You can develop sophisticated tastes in jazz or classical music or collect a large assortment of CD's. Music makes a great past time hobby.

A lot of people love animals. Pets of all sorts can become your hobby. Perhaps you enjoy rose gardening

People who live in the country sometimes become interested in raising ornamental chickens, pigeons, or pheasants. It is very interesting to watch a mother bird take care of a nest of young chicks. Perhaps you can even raise some prize winners!

'Pickles' Pet Dog

Dogs make a great hobby, too, I have two dogs, the latest addition is 'Pickles' shown here on the right, and I can tell you they give so much pleasure. Walking and enjoying a pet dog is one thing, but breeding and raising show dogs is something else entirely. Show dogs may require a bit of an investment, but many puppies are free.

There is also the aspect of training a dog in obedience. Dogs give a lot of love back to their owners, too, so if you start a past time hobby of caring for a dog, you will never be lonely. However, dogs require quite a bit of work and attention, especially when they are being trained, so keeping dogs is not for everyone.

Bicycles can become your favorite past time. Hobby bicyclists are becoming more and more common to see cycling along lesser traveled highways seeing the countryside up close and personal.

Bicycling requires a helmet and suitable clothes as well as a small tool kit for roadside repairs. Or maybe you would enjoy cycling on a smaller scale, simply taking fun rides with your family. The choice is yours.

Build A Website Around Your Hobby

You may enjoy building your own website to complement your hobby and to share your knowledge with others who have a similar interest. With the wealth of tools available to you today it's very easy to do and doesn't require any previous experience, and age is really not a barrier.

The world is full of interesting things to learn and do. Don't merely sit back and watch TV. Get interested in a new hobby. It's good for your mind, and it's a great example to our kids and grandkids doing something meaningful.

There are plenty of Hobby ideas for you to participate in and we will be adding them here to get that old grey matter working.
