What new skills or hobbies have you been busy with?

Hands down I found the best time when not trading is Habitnest
Journals to help you focus on your free time , to meditate and to organize your time.

I’m sorry to hear about the accident. But I’m glad to hear you’re learning to cook. Similar to trading, cooking is an expression of yourself. A different side of your personality, but all you, nonetheless.

Good job!!

By the way @bobart …I know some people are sensitive to smells and don’t like the smell of food in their house. To me, the smell of anything cooking, is a sign that I came at the right time!

If I go to someone’s house, and I smell onions and garlic frying, oh man!! I love it!

Some people don’t like the smell of cooked fish in the air, but to me it’s wonderful. What do you guys think?

The smell of something cooking -
Me? I love it! My wife. . . not so much. She likes the onions okay and the smell of bread, but fish or something strong, or like cabbage, no.
Enjoy!

I picked up origami haha. Being a lefty i was always clumsy with my hands. But surprisingly, origami works for me

I have started to learn the JavaScript programming language as well as exploring the world of GitHub in a move to broaden my horizon even though my professional background is in Banking & Finance.

It feels good and is a confidence booster to have an additional skill in my portfolio.

I discovered that the house needs all sorts of stuff done, I can’t say I have a lot of free time. :smiley:

It is true and every day you have to do miles of things, it is the place where you will never be unemployed: p

True. It’s a vicious circle. You repair or clean something, something else pops up.

You have been very productive. Love the chickens!

Ive been a beginner guitarist for years now! Keep playing the same songs over and over.

Decided I would learn fingerstyle guitar. Still working on my first song.
Here is the website I am using. I’m learning tears in heaven by Eric Clapton

They like it! I like them outside, too. :grinning:

I always bought food but for safety reasons I’ve been cooking my food. Nothing fancy just simple stuff for now but at least I’m taking baby steps. It’s cool that a lot of us are doing things that we don’t usually do.

What kind of vegetables are you growing? I buy herbs but for some reason they always die. :expressionless:

That’s cool too. Even taking a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life is a great way to spend time while on lockdown. At least we get to rest and recharge until things get back to normal. What series did you watch?

Working out is also something I’ve been meaning to do but something always comes up haha.

yes its not is easy to keep a routine, but you do feel better for it, start basics on you tube about 15-20 minutes, say 3 times a week.

In the past we’ve grown potatoes, yellow squash, broccoli and some other things. My wife took care of most of it, while I was at work.
Fresh vegetables are the best. Once, we had fresh (harvested - cooked the same day), frozen and canned squash all on the same plate, just to see. Fresh is the winner. It was a pretty surprising difference, so, I hope you can find a way to have something home grown! :slightly_smiling_face:

My wife has grown herbs with mixed results. Outside they seemed to grow better than under a grow light, but she has succulents (not edible) inside that look great.

Oh, this year we were inside during planting season - for a couple of health reasons, but the perennials are doing fine. Maybe this fall or next year?

BTW, why are recipes called “recipes” and not “formulas” or just “instructions”? :face_with_monocle:
