it’s bedtime

NaBloPoMo Day 13:
What is your favorite hour of the day?

This is my favorite hour of the day, right now. It’s the hour before I go to sleep, when I have my pajamas on and I have settled in for the night. It doesn’t happen at a regular time, although ideally I start winding down around 9 or 9:30.

What defines this time is that I no longer have any illusions of doing paperwork or cleaning the house; chore time has ended, and the rest of the evening is for me. I usually fill this time with words: writing blog posts, reading, talking with David.  It settles me down physically and recharges me emotionally.

I don’t always get this “favorite hour.” Sometimes I am so worn out that I just come home and sleep. But I usually try to get in a little bit of time to myself, even if it’s just reading a “Darcy” story on my cell phone. (Of course, these are the times that I fall asleep while reading, and David has to pry my phone from my fingers when he comes to bed at the proper time!)
