Default What new hobby should I take up?

OK, so I have some surgery coming up in a few weeks. I am being told that I should plan to be out of work for 2-3 weeks and cannot drive at all for 2 weeks. Basically stuck in the house for 2 weeks and I am pretty sure I am going to go bat shit crazy if I do not have something to do to stay busy. What new hobby should I take up to occupy my time while stuck at home?

after surgery, you probably will not be able to do much if you are not allowed to go to work, so reading up of different things will probably be the best thing to do.
Wine and beer making is interesting to some, read up and see if it is something you would like to do once you are good to work some

Go and buy a cheap drone and learn to fly it (assuming you don’t already know)

LOL, good replies so far. I have ruptured disc between T1 and T2 and severely degenerated disc from C5-C7. So, I will finally have feeling and dexterity back in my right hand so the first post holds promise. Stock market? I did pretty good with Moderna and Gilead this week, but don't know what the heck happened with Moderna today. Anybody? Have a couple phantoms drones from when they first came out. Batteries barely last 10 minutes at this point. Bourbon drink gin and beer making both hold real promise!! I have never fly fished and have no idea at all about fly tying. Ghost account on THT!!!!! Now that sounds like fun!!

Youtube channel "Tech Ingredients". You will probably find some projects for when you feel better.

hey if you make some wine, someone might be able to run it thru a still to make something else for you, or read up on doing that too

Use this opportunity to "clean up" your stuff, maybe file it and/or organize it. It would take me months to do that if I did it right ;-)
