I'm glad there was more than one choice. I chose a few things, but which I would do first depends on my mood at the time.

What I *usually* do is sit on the couch and veg or hop on the computer.

My *favorite* thing to do when I have the time is read. I just like to have sufficient time to get into the book, and 30 minutes won't cut it!!

It depends on the time I have for extra things as to what I do. Sometimes I just go out & sit on the porch & watch the sun set.

When I have free time my favorite thing to do is to light a vanilla candle and take a nice long bubble bath!

Patti, I love to see the beautiful colors in the sunsets. It's especially pretty at the beach or lake.. the colors reflect in the water & are so pretty.

Yes Minny I sometimes go across the street to my dau's place and go out on their deck as they have waterfront property and the sunsets there are beautiful like you say reflecting on the water.
I also like to go out under one of their trees and read very peaceful
