What’s your favorite time of day and what do you usually do during it? I think all of us have a favorite time of day. A time when we either feel best or we love what we are doing or who we are with. I'm going to guess that we have a wide spread on favorite times of the day for all of us.

My favorite is the evening, especially in the fall, winter and springtime. I love after supper to be with my husband. Hopefully the dishes will be done and I can feel relaxed and just 'be' together. It doesn't much matter what we do....we are two who can be very comfortable with total silence in the air. And at other times we are both talking up a storm and laughing. In the fall - spring the nights come earlier and we have a fire in the woodstove. I love the feeling of being bundled up and snuggley. On work nights he often heads to bed earlier than I do and then I have some 'me' time either at the computer or on a sewing project.

So what time of day is your favorite? And what do you usually do during this time?

Actually, for me that varies because my days vary. When I work in the bar, my favourite time of the day is when I come home afterwards and cuddle up in bed with my boyfriend. When I'm home in the evening, my favourite time of the day starts when my boyfriend and I are both home. We talk, read or watch TV, have dinner and just relax.
Now he is travelling with a theater group and my favourite time of the day is the evening when I know I've managed to put yet another day without him behind me. I usually read in the evening these days, watch a bit of TV or, if I still have enough energy, work on things for university.

I love the quiet of the very early morning - it's a good chance to drink coffee, read my bible a bit, check out what's happening here and on some of my other favourite sites, and then do a bit of crafting. I'm generally ready for a nap by 9am (I'm usually awake at 4:30am when Hubby gets up) but I refuse to give in to two naps, so I hold off until early afternoon.

At approx. 1:00pm, I'll lay down and fall asleep almost instantly. I'll sleep for about 4 hours or so....and then be back in bed at 9:00pm-ish for the night.

   I love the early morning! It's a new day to start all over after the night time forgiveness of yesterday.
    While in my teens, during the summer, I would get up before daybreak and ride my horse. Cool, quiet, refreshing!
     I use the morning to prep myself for the daily challange, and the evening to relfect, and plan for tomorrows unknowns.

   Dear Chutz,
     I have 2 times of the day that I enjoy.
  1st. 530-630 am. No one is awake. The air smells crisp and cool. I open up the big windows in the kitchen recess and begin making breakfeast. Cinnamon rolls, biscuits, pancakes, sausage.. sometimes eggs if they are in season. It feels perfect, smells perfect. ..eventually my little bumblebees blink and shuffle their way to the dining room.
  2nd. 3:30-5:00 pm. I start out by turning the AC to low and open up all the windows. Brew dark heavy coffee and turn the radio on low. Then I begin preparing supper. My daughters are in the kitchen with me telling me about their day. While I sit at my stools, cooking & listening. It is the perfect way to wind down into the evening.

I always used to be a morning person growing up, but now I am a night person. My pain is worse at night, but despite that, there is something about night (once it gets dark) that I find very relaxing. Between 9 and 12 pm is usually my "me time" (although I really need to start going to bed earlier now that I am out of college & have to get up every day at 6:30 am for work). During this time I usually camp out in my bed & play around on the computer for a while. Then I watch some DVD's of old TV shows, like Star Trek, or M*A*S*H. I turn the lights off in my room, with the exception of a night-light and a string of "cow lights" that I have hanging over my shelved. I also get my aromatherapy going. Every night I burn lavender essential oil. I just find that scent so relaxing. Usually around midnight, my dog comes up onto my bed (before that he sleeps in his crate next to my bed, or on the floor in my room) & I snuggle with him for a bit before trying to go to sleep.
