I haven’t updated my hobby progress in a while. This is probably due to a lack of progress. I have done a few things, but I wouldn’t call this a particularly productive summer for a hobbyist. Of course, in Canada, the best indoor hobby time is winter. When it is cold outside, unless your playing hockey or skiing (two very fine pursuits) then being outside either means that tough walk to the bus stop, the pull your kids up hill so they can slide down in 1/10th the time, or the dreaded driveway shovel. Being cold outside provides the perfect opportunity to work on models, puzzles, the train, or something along those lines.
Lately here the weather has been rather warm and the flower garden has been demanding a lot of my attention.
Fear not, I have done some things. First and foremost, I have committed myself to this blog. The second thing is that I picked up (well, in fact I had Amazon send me) some new train books. I have read quite of bit from each one and I am happy with the purchase. The third thing I have done is get the bike tuned up so I can ride around and enjoy this weather.
Sadly, my tennis partner is relocating and I am afraid my game will fall off to nothing.
Truth be told, I have neglected my models, my trains (well, I got some books, and I have made a decision about my layout–but I will save that for another blog) and my Japanese study. I have put off the Lego purchase. I have spent time reading, but I have not quite gotten used to loading books on the e reader.
I finished my book of Codeword Puzzles (all 150 of them) and started my book of logic puzzles.
I am not worried, and I am not short of topics for this blog, so even if this officially becomes a lazy summer, I will still have a progress report for you in August.
