    OK Weigh in here.

    It is Saturday, the weather fair, and you have somehow weedled out about 8 hours of unplanned time without obligation to make others happy.....

    Your preferences of spending the time....

        Since I'm a backcountry hiker, I like to make stuff for that. So it's fabbing snowshoes, headlights, custom case for the camera, etc. I have more fun in the shop doing that than anything else, unless it's actually being 'out there'. I'm not a fan of laying around, or fishing, or hanging around at social events, or watching ball games. I'm happy when the lathe or mill is running, and I'm finding ways to machine something.
        I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

          Machining something that will be useful. It will probably be a part for one of the machines.

            When the grandkids have gone home and the wife is off shopping, and silence has decended upon the house. I grab a good book or mag and do some constricting reading.

                I'd be machining.
                However, there are the rare times when I don't have anything to build/modify/repair, or, just do not feel like playing in the shop Then I play with electronics or just read

                Mmmmmmm.....boooooooks!

                  Hmmm...today I rebuilt the liquid lock and vaporiser on my forklift,moved a few things,went and picked up a few more,came home and unloaded them and drats ran out of time for machining.
                  I just need one more tool,just one!

                    Gophers are still hiding, so I can't go gopher sniping. Knee is too sore to do any machining so I guess I will curl up in the down coforter and wait for the cats to put me to sleep.

                        Depends on the race...

                        I haven't had 8 hours straight to do anything in a long time. I'd either be machining, working on the car, or fixing/maintaining my neglected equipment.

                            That is easy, go out and pat heads and scratch hinders until all are happy, go in and make an onion and limberger on russian rye bread sandwich and then pad off to the shop and work on a project or two. Top it all off by watching the sun set over the valley as the ranchers bovines stroll by. Oh yes, life is good.

                              I hit the salvage yards looking for more stuff to add to my project list.
