I just heard from Alfred, a friend who I have made since I started this website. We exchange letters every so often, and I always enjoy hearing from him. Alfred has been great about sending me recommendations of new Cozy Mystery authors who he thinks really belong on the site. And, he is always right about those authors! He also gives me the heads-up on when some of the Cozy Mystery authors are publishing a new book.
Recently, Alfred started reading his current book and realized that he wasn’t in the mood to read it. With that, he started thinking about hobbies, and thought it might be interesting to find out what other hobbies you all enjoy doing when your latest Cozy Mystery just isn’t cutting it for you!
I’ll start the ball rolling by telling you that one of the things Alfred enjoys doing is Word Search Puzzles. Another thing he enjoys doing is listening to the old radio shows from the 1940s and 1950s. And, since he has subscriptions to two word search magazines and also has CDs of old radio shows, he is able to combine both of these relaxing hobbies. He also enjoys jigsaw puzzles.
(One of my brothers enjoys jigsaw puzzles and word searches, also!)
Now I’ll tell you about some of my hobbies >>> I love my Sudoku Puzzles! I have to admit that I’m not too terribly fast at them, and sometimes I have to put one down and then try coming back to it another day, but I still love them. Also, I enjoy my needlepoint, especially with those little Mill Hill glass beads… even though I am almost sure that they are the reason I have had to up my reading glasses prescription! (Anymore, I feel like Sprite is a “hobby” of mine. Carrying her from room to room, giving her all of her many pills, making sure she doesn’t take certain pills on an empty stomach, ETC!)
Do any of you have some hobbies that you wouldn’t mind telling us about?
(PS>>> Alfred, thanks for the great entry idea!)
