Ten on Tuesday

For years I have said "if I didn't need to sleep I could be so much more productive".  Well, I still haven't figured out how to live without sleep, but Carole has a good thought for today's ToT: "10 Things I Could Do With An Extra Hour In My Day".

1.  Read.  You thought number one would be knitting, didn't you?  
2.  Oh, ok - yeah, I would knit. And speaking of knitting, look at that pretty skein of yarn up there.  It was gifted to me at SPA.  
3.  Take more walks.  Especially if this fictitious hour allowed for more daylight.
4.  Be more creative with cooking.  Yes, I do cook occasionally.  I made a great macaroni and cheese last week.  Those Tasty videos you find on Facebook are very helpful.
5.  Spin.  I love to do it but knitting is my default lately.
6.  Design more patterns.  I have so much I want to knit that I don't take the time to just be creative and design my own things.  I start but then I find something else I want to make and there goes my idea.
7.  Spend more time gardening.  Well, maybe not in January, but certainly during the warmer months.
8.  Volunteer more.  Maybe at the local soup kitchen.  Maybe more charity knitting.  
9.  Teach more classes.  I love doing it but those long days are tough sometimes.  An extra hour would make that much easier.
10.  Take more pictures.  My photography skills could use more attention.

Any ideas for what you would do with an extra hour?

Love your list! I would do basically the same things that you wrote, plus maybe a little bit more time for exercise. I always feel so great after a long walk and a nice stretching routine.

My list looks a lot like yours. I started listening to audiobooks so I could read and knit at the same time, but still haven't figured out how to do without sleep. That is really lovely yarn!

The yarn is beautiful!

I bet my daughter would be intrigued with spinning.

Pictures! I love to take pictures. And I didn't even put that on my list of ten! :)

I think we need more than one extra hour! ;)

I think, since the hour is fictitious, that it can come at whatever time of day your prefer. Great list!

A similar list but I would add more time for the Grandchildren.

I like your list. Oh an extra hour to read sounds really fabulous. I like the audiobook, but it's not the same, sometimes I really want to look at the words. And boy oh boy, I create an extra hour called just past midnight to knit sometimes, I wish I didn't. But yes, I would love more time to knit, be active and socially responsible too. Don't get me started about creative mealtime. i am so boring these days.
