At home, bored


I'm stuck at home well I recover from the surgery, it's been 3+ years, probably 5-7 more. I am beginning to run out of extra things to do. I've run through Netflix, any more Netflix suggestions? So any YouTube suggestions? And suggestions of what else to do with my free time?
I'm at home in a wheelchair most of the day.

I'm trying to learn how to knit, it's been on my bucket list for a long time. I'm not very good, but practice makes perfect...supposedly.

What kind of movies do you like?

Hi finalpoet,

One thing I got into was studying my family history and I found a lot out on line. I also spent time writing poetry and short stories. If you go on YouTube do some brain teasers or just go on line and type in brain teasers they are questions that are so simple that they are hard to answer. I like history so I also looked into finding pictures of my home town and finding prices of things back during the depression. A loaf of bread was 5 cents back then and my grandma got groceries for the family on $5.00 a week 3 kids and the parents. Here's a few ideas for you. I wish you the best of luck and May God Bless You!

Sue

You could try Hulu -- plenty more shows to watch there.

You could learn how to become a ham radio operator. Not only can you "meet" folks all over the world, but in the event of a complete shutdown of the electrical grid, you'd be able to stay connected.

I enjoy quilting, and doing jigsaw & word puzzles. The word puzzles I enjoy doing the most are "fill-ins"--you're given a list of words & crossword grid, and have to figure out where they go. I also enjoy word searches. I order back issue bundles of puzzle magazines from the company, so I get them for less than half price. I also collect US stamps & coins

I'm a ham radio operator and so is Porkette. Ham radio is a great way to meet people. There is also radio contesting,and digital modes to name a few aspects. I've even contacted the International space station. I also enjoy cooking and reading history books.
