It's wonderful to be a human in a Vizsla world!

I bought DH a RC helicopter for Christmas and apparently created a monster. Since Christmas he has been flying his helicopter, researching RC helicopters, planning his next one, etc.

I have gotten very involved in the model horse hobby, have started live showing and have managed to show some of my horses to the model horse equivalent of titles.


~Christina--Mom to:
Sally--8 yr old pit bull mix
Jack--6 yr old Labrador
Sadie & Runt--12 yr old calico DSHs
Pickles & Kiwi--3 yr old white winged parakeets
Yoda--1 yr old Quaker parrot
Solo--12 yr old Senegal parrot
Sheena--Quarter Horse--3/24/86-6/23/11--Rest Easy Sweet Girl~

Labs do it in the lake.

Other than dogs, horses are pretty much my only other hobby LOL. My parents both grew up with horses, so I did too. I did hunters and showed Welsh Ponies as a kid, now we have cutting bred Quarter Horses. I LOVE working cows but there is very little in that way in this area, so for now we trail ride and school reining.

I would actually like to downsize in the horse area though, my mom and I are both getting a little burnt out. I would love to get down to 1-2 and enjoy them more!

I quite enjoy photography too, although I don't think I would enjoy it as much if I didn't have such lovely animal subjects

I'm hoping to try some new things this coming year, though! One thing I REALLY want to try is stand up paddleboarding! There are so many beautiful lakes in Ontario, it seems like such a nice way to explore them.

I am so jealous of those of you who have horses! Having horses one day is one of my biggest dreams. I used to help out on a cattle ranch. I earned my place helping out directly with the horses but I started out by mucking 8 hours a day, and that was wonderful just because I got to be near them!

Ooh, I just remembered one I'm surprised I forgot.
Well, I'm a Sims 2 addict, and I love making custom content for sims (clothes, tattoos, skintones, wallpaper, etc.) I can't mesh (make 3-D models of objects) yet, so mostly I just retexture things.

I've really gotten into crocheting

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

Urgh I wish I had the patience/stamina/attention span for hobbies.

I struggle to watch a whole film to conclusion a lot of the time, so sitting concentrating on an activity doesn't really gel with me.

I enjoy walking, and want to ramp it up a bit in 2014, and my plan is to start hill walking again... My only issue is I'm wary of going alone as I don't want to die, but I've yet to find a reliable walking companion who's willing to go when I want to go! My goal is to at least have walked the hill by me, plus snowdon, plus one in the lakes by the end of the year. Ideally I'd like to have done the 3 main peaks by the end of the year.... But we will see.

I start reading books and never ever finish them... I have about 7 half read ones dotted about. Just, no... Oh, I have started a small collection of vintage dog books...

I can be crafty/creative... But again, I get so bored... I've painted, and I do an ok job, but I don't find it relaxing, I find it frustrating!!

I like antiques fairs and shops. That's something I do with the boyfriend, and we will go into them when we see them we rarely buy stuff though! But we love walking round looking for art and furniture. And dog books, see above!

I like to cook when I get a day free I like to find a recipe and cook something.. Always savoury, rarely sweet, I'm not a baker and prefer savoury food!!! I like nice ingredients and cooking from scratch. I'm not a great cook, but I cook food I like, and I'm pleased when other people like it too.

Dogs. Duh. But even then I'm not obsessive, don't train every day, don't compete (aside from the odd show for Fred, but that's taken a back seat). Started agility lessons, and I'd love to make that more of a hobby, fingers crossed. They are my obsession though, as all my friends would tell you....

Errrr... Honestly, I work 5 days a week, I leave the house at 7.30am and get in at 6pm, and frankly i often don't want to do much of anything except chill out and mooch with my doglets
"Dogs are our link to paradise. They do not know jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing wasn't boring, it was peace."
