Need an indoor hobby...

Right now my only indoor hobbies are reading, cooking and watching tv/movies.

Looking for suggestions for something else....

This may seem a stretch, but have you considered painting? You may possess some untapped artistic talent.

my theory is that everyone can paint/draw, they just need to be taught how. I've taught at least 5 people who thought they had absolutly no skills in art and after the first 30 minutes they were amazed at how well they were able to simply draw.

hmmm.. what are some other indoor hobbies...

train sets
model cars/airplanes
knitting
making clothes
decorating the house (think martha stuart...minus the jail time)
cooking
magic tricks/slight of hand


hmmm, that is all I can think of for now... I'll be needing an indoor hobby soon since it gets really cold in the winter here so I want to see other suggestions


*edit* going back to the art stuff, you could find objects and make 3-D sculptures out of them. It doesn't all have to be on paper/canvas.

Learn to play guitar, piano, or some other musical instrument.

One "hobby" that you DO NOT want to take up is playing the popular PC game "World of Warcraft". I recently made that mistake and now find myself playing from 5 PM to 10 or 11PM, 7 days a week. (ouch!!!!)

On a serious note, there are a lot of things you can do indoors that could be a very beneficial hobby. I liked the musical instrument one. Another one that I like is excercise. Keeps you busy with benefits and results.
