I cross-stitch, sew, and bake.  That's the house-wifey stuff.

I also have a veggie garden every year that I can, I maintain our yard mostly by myself, although I often have to wrestle my John Deer lawn tractor out of my hubby's hands (our favorite mechanical toy).

I do some work with Relay for Life and seem to be getting a few more teens coming to my house this weekend for "Aunt Mary's Boot Camp".  I love making teens do physical labor.  :)

And, if I had the room and my way, I'd be restoring a 70's muscle car.  I'm still looking for one as a possible project as my neighbor has all the tools I could need and he's kind enough to share.

Oh, and I wrangle 2 Great Pyrenees "pups", one of whom needs a refresher course in playing well with others and sharing toys.

I work with a group that puts on this show every year.  I got to be Rudolph in the show this year.
We rappel off a 26 story high-rise.  We've been doing it for 4 years now.

Thought I'd take this thread off-topic.
I DJ/emcee part time.  I've the usual weddings, anniversaries, graduations.  I've also done a few funerals (songs the family chooses that reminds them of their loved one).  
I carry the standard DJ music and the not-so-standard.  I carry a wide variety of authentic Hawaiian music (there's more than the legendary Don Ho's Tiny Bubbles) as well as Christian music.

We should have a Facebook group for this!
In the fall, I'm a high school football referee - this will be my 20th season. I also played women's full-tackle football for a couple of seasons when I was well into my 40's. I wasn't very good compared to the 20- and 30-somethings and I ended my career with a blown ACL, but it was worth every bone-crunching, surgery-rehab'ing minute to have that experience, those memories, and some fine new enduring friendships.
Year-round, I train and compete in canine agility trials - 11 years and I'm training my third dog. Fun list trivia - stemming in part from her friendship with me through this list and Brainshare, our own Christel Powell started training her own dog a couple of years ago and is getting ready to compete!

So, what other crazy things do people on the list do? I race motorcycles for the past 30 years (roadracing, think Le Mans) and wrestle in the veterans class. No, not that lame WWE nonsense, the real variety you can see at the Olympics, just older and slower. This was to be my year for the world championships but a pinched nerve needs correcting. (Non injury, arthritic growths impinging.) Next year for sure...
