This blog post is part of my participation in a weekly writing meme called, "The Book of Me, Written By You" You too can be part of this experiment/experience, there is more information here, and at this Facebook page.
I may or may not publicly share what I write each week. This week I share.
The prompt for week 21 - Hobbies
Childhood hobbies & collections
Did you share a "passion" with a family member or friend?
Tell us about it - How, why, where
Do you still have any old hobbies - the ones that have been with you since childhood?
Do you still have those childhood collections?
Hobbies?? I honestly do not remember any hobbies from my childhood years.
I do have a collection that has survived, my grandmother Florence Dews Bowen collected these miniatures for me. I do treasure them.
As a child I participated in Brownies and then Girl Scouts, yes, I sold cookies door to door. I think that I may have my badges back at the stick built, tucked away, not photographed. (Must add to the to do list!)
As a child I took piano lessons, 10 years worth. Have an organ at the stick built, but rarely play it these days.
I probably dabbled in hobbies such as stamp collecting, maybe coins. Obviously, none of them were enthralling enough to keep me connected.
For years I have indulged in craft projects of all sorts. Cross stitch, sewing, dried flower arrangements, some porcelain painting of holiday items. Too many to mention. I even had a craft room once (one of the boys moved out, and I took over the room.)
The hobbies I currently engage in, computers/technology, cameras/photography, family research, RVing, all came to me as an adult. I am embracing them with a vengeance now, and now I have blogging to share them all.
