Spring - all kinds of outdoor photography, fishing, classes, festivals, driving around to discover new places.

Summer - (don't like summer) Try to find indoor things to do or fishing before 9:00 AM), classes, evening outdoor concerts.

Fall - many photography excursions related to scenery and wildlife, classes, fishing, outdoor area events, will find any excuse to be outdoors all day.

Winter - water birds photography (off to do that now), assorted computer-related activities, assorted community outdoor holiday events, reading, indoor concerts, holiday shopping, movies, casino.

There's a big chunk of time (7 weeks) where I have no classes in the winter so I'm likely to be on the computer more in the winter.

Default What we do...

Well, it depends alot on what is going on, but typically:

Spring..garden, catch up on projects, do a bit of travel to catch up with family.

Summer...Travel at least 1 month. Spend time in the garden, exercising, fishing and boating. My husband is an amateur photog so I spend time framing photographs.

Fall. Again, travel at least one month to New Mexico. Perhaps go north or west from there. Do a little hiking, freeze the garden bounty along with the green chile's from New Mexcio. Get out on the lake as much as possible before it's too cold.

Winter. Organize, clean, get ready for the holidays, clean up from the holidays, exercise, plan the garden, plan the travel. finish any projects that are "almost" done. Used to snow ski, but my husband took a bad fall a few years ago and it ended that hobby.
