30 day challenge-day 22

day 22: do you play a sport?  or talk about a different hobby....

I don't really play a sport, but I do love to workout.  I don't really think that's the same thing though.....
Other hobbies? I love to play guitar, to read, to cook & bake, to garden.  

guitar: I've been playing for almost 30 years now, although I don't get to play as much now that I have a toddler.  Soon the toddler will have his own bedroom & then I should be able to play more.  :)   Right now I usually need to wait for the toddler to go to bed in order for me to be able to play & then when he goes to bed (in my bedroom) my hubby is watching TV in the living room.  I can't really play with the TV going, & I can't go to my bedroom to play either.  But soon I should be able to do so.  :)

read: I've been a book worm for as long as I can remember.  I love to read informative/educational books, novels, historical fiction, just about anything really.  I also love to read my Bible &  do so daily.  I make my Bible my priority & then if I have any free time during the day I'll read a little out of something else, usually something educational.  And then before I go to sleep I'll usually read a little out of a novel until I feel sleepy.

cooking/baking: I love to cook & bake, but especially for OTHERS.  There is no greater joy than to see someone enjoying something  I made.  I also love to learn how to be self-sufficient in the kitchen: ie making my own rice & almond milks & making my own almond yogurt.  Yes, it's cheaper & healthier, but I do also enjoy it.  

gardening: I love gardening, but this is one hobby that has been nearly impossible to continue after having a baby.  I have tried & am still trying, but am mostly failing & not doing anywhere near as good as I was before I had a child.  But I know it's just a season in time & it will pass & in the meantime I will continue to do the best I can.  My ultimate goal would be to provide enough produce from my garden that it could save us some significant money on our grocery budget.  Not just to save money, but also to be healthier, organic & locally grown & picked at it's freshest & healthiest.

Is J a heavy sleeper? Neither of my children would sleep in the same room with me. They'd just think it was play time! Haha.

Well, J has never had any other option. But for the most part he is a heavy sleeper I guess. My biggest issue is in the morning. I swear he has mommy-radar. My hubby can get up & get ready for work & J doesn't stir, but the moment my feet hit the floor (no matter how quiet I'm being) he wakes just moments after I'm up almost every single day. My dream is to be able to get up early & workout & shower before he's even awake. I am hoping this will happen once he has his own room.
