A Juggling Picnic

I mentioned Monday about another hobby my husband Christopher and I are involved in (even if it’s a bit sporadic these days):  Juggling.  Over the years, we’ve pretty much slacked off on practicing and kept meaning to find time again to juggle more often.

Since my husband got laid off from his job in December, he’s had some free time when he’s not writing or job hunting.  One of the things I like about this looser schedule is that we are free to arrange our plans any time we want for the most part.  We can go to a park while most people are at work or school and juggle in privacy most of the time.  This allows us to focus on what we’re trying to learn and not care about dropping too often, attracting a crowd, or having to stop and talk to people for too long and miss out on much-needed practice time.  Also, we can make a relaxing event of it.  Since we have to eat lunch anyway, why not pack it up and have a picnic?  That way, any frustrating juggling sessions aren’t the entire focus of that morning/afternoon’s event.  It’s simply a nice afternoon out with my husband.  Once I get a little better with the fiddle, I would also love to take it for those times I’m having trouble with juggling or just not in the mood to juggle.

I must admit that we have been fortunate so far, but I’m getting used to this time with my husband.  I really don’t want it to end!  I just think of all the things we’ve put off or missed out on, and while we have reason to be concerned and this will eventually change when he gets a new job, we’re going to take advantage of this opportune situation and enjoy it to the fullest!

About Cynthia Griffith

I have way too many interests and hobbies, and continually cycle through them -- paying attention to some, while others wait for when I can get around to them again. My main interests are sewing and costuming (I enjoy historical clothing, such as 18th and 19th century, as well as fantasy costumes like elves and hopefully someday even dwarves), as well as getting back to art by drawing fan art of Thorin Oakenshield and Company. My husband Christopher and I spend a lot of time together, enjoying the outdoors and shared hobbies such as juggling. This blog and website is my way to share what I'm up to with friends and family.

  1. Juggling and fiddle music, outside, on a perfect day with you…yeah, I can get used to that 😉

  2. Not sure when I’ll be up to dragging the fiddle with me — it might be a while — but I look forward to it, too! 🙂

    Now, if the weather would just cooperate so we could get back out there!

    Windy today but maybe…….

  4. Mary: Unfortunately, it is too windy today to attempt juggling 🙁 We’ll have to watch the weather closely for a while.
