Today's blog challenge is, "What do you like to do for fun?"

There are some obvious things...

I adore kayaking, and taking a dip while I'm at it. There is something so serene and joyous about being on the water and so close to nature. I have only kayaked ONE time this summer. I plan to go a lot in the next few weeks to make up for that lack so far.

But I have fun doing things that most people wouldn't consider to be a good time at all!

I have fun at my work, grooming dogs. And I adore writing, which is one of my "other" jobs. I tuck up on my super comfy sofa, with my wonderful laptop. Two or 3 dogs snug in close to me, and I play soft music and the hours fly by in a happy way.

I have a lot of fun just hanging out with my animals. And my husband. I like to let the livestock into the back yard, or take a bucket and sit on it in the pasture, and just watch the critters, and pet them when they come up and "maul" me. It is joyful and almost always good for a belly laugh.

I think mucking out the horse and goat stalls is fun, and cleaning the chicken coop? It's a treat! I'm serious. I love it. Love it all.

I have a great time cooking, and an even better time EATING!

Haunting "junk" shops with my kid is super fun, maybe even more fun than cleaning the chicken coop! I find fun in so much of my daily existence... a blessing beyond measure.
