Best of Times – Ready to Relax

When everything is caught up after a busy week, including any writing I’m working on, then I’m ready to relax at home. My two favourite activities are walking along forestry paths not far from my home, whiling away an hour or two before daylight fades then slipping into a book and losing myself in the tale as night comes in.

splendidI always have a stack of books in my ‘to be read’ pile – no matter how fast I read, the pile never seems to shrink. Not a bad thing really as I’d hate to be without a book waiting for me. One book I read recently that made an impression on me was My Splendid Concubine by Lloyd Lofthouse. It’s an historical fiction set in 19th century China, weaving political history with a daring love story.  I enjoyed it so much that I’ve asked the author to visit my blog in the near future.  I’ll tell you more about that soon. Meanwhile, I’m off for a brisk walk then I’ll root through my pile of books to pick my next read.

  1. Thank you. I’m looking forward to visiting your blog. My wife and I take an eight mile walk each Saturday in a nearby regional park, so I know what you mean about enjoying a brisk walk. Next Saturday, I’ll plan to take my camera and shoot some pictures during our walk.
