Now, That's The Spot Blog Hop: What do you do outside of horses?

Now, That's The Spot started a blog hop. She wants to know: What other activities, hobbies, or sports do you do outside of riding? 

Hm. Interesting topic! 

Let's see. Activities/sports wise - not a whole lot, really lol. I try to hit up the gym after work a few times a week for 20 miserable minutes on the treadmill... but that's more a function of trying to undo the evils of sitting at a desk 40 hours a week, rather than personal enjoyment. Plus I do the barn chores weekend mornings... that's gotta count for something, right? (and it's not technically 'riding' lol)

For hobbies - I'm a sports fan. Ravens & Orioles primarily, but I can get into just about any sport and most teams. 

being a ravens fan isn't always easy

but sometimes it aint so bad

I also like to be crafty. I'm not necessarily great at it, but that really isn't the point, is it? There are a few DIY examples already on this blog (here and here). And every now and then I just get an idea for something that actually works out. (tho the FauxPro proved that not every idea is a winner lol)

any clue about the source material for these costumes?

I enjoy traveling a lot, but unfortunately I don't do it as much these days bc I suffer from extreme first world problems: my horse habit eats up too much of my travel budget. 

Let's see, reading is also pretty high on the list - or at least it used to be. For some reason I'm in a bit of a reading drought. I have a whole stack of books lined up just waiting for me. Maybe this winter?

Ooooh I also enjoy beer. Yessss. That definitely counts as a favorite hobby lol :)
