What do you do?

Day 6, Monday: If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?
Lake Tekapo, NZ - 2011
I think about this often and wonder what it is exactly that I am good at. What do I do apart from work. For some time I gave myself a hard time as I thought I was lazy. I questioned myself with ‘what do you fill your evenings and weekends with?’. There is no big task that I fill my time with. It is a mixture of small things that make it up.

So, apart from my 40-hour-a-week-job, I:

-      Walk my dog
-      Exercise. Go to the gym
-      Study via correspondence
-      Sew & knit
-      Read. Discover new authors and read new genres
-      I read blogs
-      I volunteer with people who have Down Syndrome
-      General house duties that everyone does
-      Visit family and friends
-      Discover new neighbourhoods around Sydney. Try new cafes and immerse myself in the area I live in
-      Spend time with S and Teddy

It doesn’t sound like a lot. But it is. I can’t do everything on the list all of the time because I just don’t have the time. I am busy and that is the way I like it.
