Most of my hobbies are things that are meant to be done alone. Like birding, or reading, or working out. I guess I do those things with other people sometimes, but not as often as I do them by myself. Except for working out, my hobbies are also pretty sedentary, which isn't ideal for me.
I'm thinking of learning a craft. One I could do with friends, or on my own if I wanted. Maybe something useful as well as decorative. I never had a hobby as a kid, or did a craft, except for maybe once at a free after school program, so I'm open to suggestion. Does anyone reading this have a hobby or do a craft of some kind? Even if your interest is solitary, or doesn't have a product, I'd still like to hear about it.
Not much going on lately, the summer seems to have the same effect on the people here as well as the birds. It drives us into our nests or into the shade, makes socializing more difficult to sort out. At least we don't have to find our own food or water.
I've had some good talks with some new friends lately, and with some older friends, too. There is a good side to the heatwave, I guess, if it brings people together.
There have been plenty of thunderstorms lately, natural for the time of year I guess. Whenever they come, I think of Sean. He used to be scared of them as a kid, but he used to pretend he wasn't. He liked looking brave more than anything, trying to impress me. I'm pretty sure he can't hear the thunder now, but when it does come, my first reaction is to wonder where Sean is, if he's scared. When we were older and in the act together, he used to hate when he even thought I was treating him like a kid, but he always came to my room during a storm anyway.
I don't know why I talked about the weather so much in this post. It's what's outside my window, I guess. One thing that's nice about being outside the city is that I get a clear view of the night sky without all the smog.
It's pretty late, think I'll call it a night.
