Android Dev…. Why Not?

I know that I have so much to learn about Databases and SQL Server, but man I get tired of focusing so much on one thing. I have many things in my life that I enjoy. First is by far hanging out with my wife. But I love technology and I love my Android phone. Since I enjoy my phone so much I thought I would take on a side project and try to learn how to develop for Andriod. I got online downloaded the SDK started reading and decided I would like to get a real book as well. I searched around and I finally decided on:
Professional Android Application Development (Wrox Programmer to Programmer)
I picked this book because of the reviews, and I really like books by this publisher. I have read a few others and they seem to make the reading interesting. Not as dry as many technical books. I have not completed the reading but so far I think it is very good. It is a bit dated, since Android is moving so fast, but still good and pertinent.
I do not really know what I would like to develop at this time, I just think it will be fun to try out. I look forward to developing, even if it is an app that only I use, for Android. Any one got any app ideas? Keep in mind that I will need to keep it simple at first.
