Animals can be so comforting and they always seem to know when you are hurting or down.
I also love to read. I am reading a series by Pitticus Lore. It is really good. What kind of shows do you like to watch?
Always follow your heart, it will lead you to your right path. It may not be the easiest path but it will be the right one.
I watch all kinds of shows from general hospital and days of our lives to DIY and house hunters on HGTV. I generally record at least 6 shows or more on my dvr a day. I never really watched Bones before this year, so I'm currently catching up on the seasons from 2006 until current. South land season just started on TNT and I am excited about that.
Last night I watched Dr.Pol, Pit bulls and parolees and Too cute kittens :-)
I also keep up on the news and watch or listen to at least a couple hours a day.

My name is Mandars (Amanda, but nobody calls me that), my late husband shortened my name to that & it's stuck
I'm 50 this year, although I've had RSD for nearly 1/2 my life I have tried to ignore it & get on with life where possible. I'm a widow now & have been since 94, like you I have a daughter but she's grown up now. Suzi lives with me still & is engaged to a lovely lad, they plan to live with me even when they're married.
I used to run an animal rescue centre for cats, rabbits, guinea pigs & birds. I even had a little owl for several months. Although I stuck to taking only those I've told you about I did take in an iguana from some one who was posted abroad. I was living in a military area at the time in the south of England so had a high turn over of pets needing homes as people were posted else where. I had to give the centre up when I moved, but I still miss it. I have pets again now, an assistance dog that I trained myself, a guinea pig, 2 zebra finches & a quail. All the birds are rescued, some habits die hard
I do a lot of crafts also, I crochet, knit, cross stitch & sew. I have a grip thing to help me when I'm bad, the rest of the time I tuck the knitting needle down my brace & knit away! It's probably a sight that would give the avid knitter heart failure, but it's fun
I also love dolls housing, I use my ot therapy to make mini things for the houses we have. I use clay & femo to make foods & accessories, I sew fancy dresses for the dolls & make all sorts of soft furnishings for the houses. Whilst I was running the rescue centre for pleasure I was also working from home. I designed & made ball gowns for the military wives, also some wedding dresses.
Nice to chat to you
I used to cross stitch before all of the surgeries and RSD. My friend gave me one of those frames that holds the fabric. I keep say I am going to try it and see if I can do it now.
I used to want a doll house. I actually got a kit many years ago and it never got put together. I've always loved looking at them. I know I couldn't have one now though. With my 5 cats they would destroy it and be stealing, playing and running around with the miniature things

They're great, and we make up for the love they didn't get in the beginning. My 10 year old daughter crochets. Each of my kids had to choose a non electronic hobby to try that wasn't sports related. One chose painting, one chose clay/pottery, and the youngest chose crochet. I also chose painting. Sometimes it hurts, but I do it on my good days.
I love that idea of a non electronic non sports hobby. I'll have to tell my sister about that for my nephew.
Most of my zoo is rescues with the exception of my 2 exotics(the chinchilla and turtle)
