Every Friday, three DC area bloggers Mary at Mar On the Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up For What?! and Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC to host the Friday Five linkup. Anyone can join with their own Friday Five post (yes, it must be a Friday Five!!) They encourage you to visit other blogs on the linkup, comment, share and engage!
This week, the theme is Free Friday. So since this is my only stay at home vacation of the year, I’ve chosen to post about My Top 5 Off Work Activities.
Of course, what else? I can run in the morning, in the afternoon or in the evening. I can run when the sun comes out or it has stopped raining. I can run near home or drive to a bike path or to a park. I can even run with a non-working friend. It is so delightful!!
I don’t enjoy it but I know it good for me to do something other than running. However when I work, I don’t have (make) time for it.
I do enjoy it and before I started playing tennis and running, I used to cook a lot.
This week, I’ve made eggplant parm, tuna noodle casserole, meatloaf, vegetable soup…my hubby’s favorite dishes since he has to work.
I started knitting when I couldn’t run or go to work. I find it relaxing and I like to make things for others. I used to quilt but knitting is portable and I can bring it anywhere.
I’ve always enjoyed reading. But who has the time? I read before I fall asleep at night but when I am not working, I can read anytime.
Happy Running! What do you do when you are off from work?
I love squash soup! I’ve never made it myself though.
It’s easy and you also can buy frozen butternut squash which makes it even easier.
I love it, running at 10 a.m. 🙂 I have been feeling so rough this week, I haven’t really enjoyed the time off 😦 Hoping next week is better! I like your knitting.
You just described my staycation ! Replace the knitting with blogging, housework and napping and you have my week.
blogging is a given.. yeah there is housework, too 😦
I love cooking too. I don’t do it as much while I’m working since I have to travel for my job.
Cooking is how I spend a LOT of my time. Between that, working out & taking care of the animals (and housework! Yuck!) there still aren’t enough hours in the day.
Bet you’re glad we didn’t run wed. Although I did – outside, too!
Tuesday was really miserable. I did run on Wed between the rain showers. You can do that when you don’t work 🙂
Hey, I’m not working and I STILL ended up running in the rain! Having the dogs earns my time isn’t always my own. But I wouldn’t have it any other way!
These are great activities when you have down time from work! Your cooking looks delicious! I wish I knew how to knit, I can crochet, but I don’t feel like it is as versatile. Those hats are super cute! I love it when your hobbies can also create awesome handmade gifts, I think that’s part of why I took up soap making, that and I love chemistry 😉
