I do the same as Finy . . . reading. If I decide to have a reading spell I end up with one dog on the bed and one on the floor . . . always facing the door. It's funny that they see reading as "quiet time" . . . makes me laugh!
Like my two fellow Angels,I love to read while on the bed with my dogs!!! They are such great,quiet though loyal company,and they never interrupt me with silly requests or make demands of me!
If it is cool enough,I like to potter in my garden,with camera at the ready!
And sometimes I will even grab my pencils and either draw or do some colouring!!
There is SO much to do when we have a spare bit of 'nothing to do' time,and all of it wonderful!!
Probably the most enjoyment I would have would be reading in a comfortable outdoor chair under my gazebo at the front of the house with a nice glass of chilled wine and catching a bit of sun at the same time
As I have many, many spare hours in my day, I get onto to AA, if my husband is asleep. He says there a waste of time. I don't agree of cause! But I have to put them into my AA folder, so I'm still 124 behind! I did ask for them only be be send them to me once a week, so I can catch up, but I'm still receiving them daily. I also catch up on iview, while throwing out articles I've collected over the years, & sorting through boxes of craft 'stuff' I may use some time for making my cards...1 day!
