I really enjoy cooking for friends and family, and plan to have regular get-togethers. The kitchen has always been the center of the house for my family, since well before my great grandparents passed.
I'm working off and on at a novel, but these days its mostly "off" because I am settling into a new job. I started back to painting and wood carving when I moved back to Columbus, as well.
Because I'm an absolutely massive nerd, I collect antique pocket watches.
I recently realized I also collect musical instruments, since I now have a violin, a banjo, several wooden flutes from romania, a guitar, and a set of harmonicas (the weird thing is that I don't play anything, though).
I fixed my old NES all by myself!
