Just Thursday Blog Hop: What’s Your Fave Time of the Day?


The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

—Robert Frost, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”

Welcome to the second round of a blog hop event called Just Thursday! If you missed the first round and want to catch up, head over to the last week’s host here. Or just join now and let me be your hostess for this week.

What is your favourite part of the day? Mine is the evening. I’m a nocturnal creature and enjoy it when the dark starts falling and my creativity awakes. (Or doesn’t.) I do most work and most blogging by night when the house is quiet and I can be with myself.

What is your precious time of the day? Let me know in a comment or blog about it and share a link to your post. My co-hosts, Nuvofelt and Rebekah, and I will be around to visit your blogs and chat with you.

The next Just Thursday blog hop is happening next Thursday and your host will be Rebekah. Join any time, Thursday or not, and enjoy!

  1. Hrrrm difficult one for me to say. I love the mornings if I am left in peace as this is a time my mind feels fresh and pain levels are my lowest, the sun rising, birds tweeting and no noise apart from that. I am a lover of silence, apart from things like birds and the patter of rain.

    Middle of the day, afternoon forget…However I also love the evenings though usually retired to my boudoir by then, this however is when my mind starts to mull, to create, to perhaps go to my ‘other’ side and allow me to escape somewhere else… ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx


    1. Middle of the day is worst, I hear you. The worst in all respects. You describe your mornings so beautiful! Mine are much more blurry, as I’m not a morning person. I’m glad to hear you’re a woman of the night also ๐Ÿ˜‰

          1. aha but is that not Bohemia? Rather than Bohemian? I am most definitely Bohemian, if you are we should have no problems with our interior design for our houses together, however I have fear that my eclectic collection of bohemian style might not fit in with what I imagine is for you a liking for more neat, formulated lines? grins….But maybe a happy medium is necessary, the debating and ordering of this will be interesting no? hehe..winks xx


          2. Oh no it’s bohemian (as of style) and Bohemian (with capital letter, as of Bohemia the land), I should know as I am one! Or both ๐Ÿ˜‰ ? I do like things need but I do like a touch of the bohema too, so I’m looking forward to be admitted to your boudoir!

          3. Well i am too lazy to type capitals on my phone its much too hard work but no disrespect intended to such fine colourful lands. My boudoir is having finishing touches for your arrival! Cotton or silk sheets?


          4. If you ask nicely!!! LOL..I am eclectic my dearest kitty all kinds of things, I would say more submissive to men, but I don’t mind spanking the odd female bot bot..but now I have you my search is over…haha..cackles evilly!


    1. That is an excellent way to look at it. It is true that the light is good in mornings. The middle of the day is awful, as Justine and I agreed too! Totally useless part of the day. Maybe now I’ll appreciate my mornings more when I realise I could just as well get up and use the good light for shooting…


  2. Bring on the night…love the opening poem and, as I know you are expecting a quote, here is a quote that seems apt

    โ€œWhat hath night to do with sleep?โ€

    โ€• John Milton, Paradise Lost


    1. The opening poem is one of my favourites, so is its author. He’s a master of understatement and deceptive simplicity. And pessimism! I must FINALLY read Paradise Lost. I can’t see how I got my degree without having read it. *hangs head in shame*

      1. my next post (later) will contain a kerouac quote “โ€œnothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the roadโ€ so plenty of time left for Paradise (Lost or otherwise)…


      1. You know we aren’t perfect. That’s why we befriend Operating Systems to do the clever work for us. Then we have time to wake up early and appreciate the beauty of nature….

            Yes, serial comma. Though I never liked the serial converger personally. I’m however touched to the depth of my large, voluble and volatile heart.


  3. I was always a morning person, an early riser who was flagging by late afternoon and then had a burst of energy in the evening. Over the years, however, I have morphed into being an afternoon person. I am still an early riser and get the bulk of my stuff done in the morning but it is all non-stop chaos so the afternoon is my opportunity for calm between the frenetic activity of the mornings and the late afternoon relentlessness of homework, cooking dinner and settling the kids. So whereas I used to find the afternoons exhausting and like wading through treacle, now those hours are my oasis of calm and the only period in which I can hopefully eke out a bit of time for myself. I do evenings too but I am not very productive. Unless you count reading or watching TV in my pyjamas to be productive.


    1. Wow, thank you for sharing your metamorphosis in a comment! I never had any idea that it’s possible to change one’s routines so radically. I’ve been a night person ever since I can remember. You described your busy afternoons very vividly — I think I would just drop dead… No wonder that your productive in front of TV in the evening!


        1. I’m so sorry to hear you’re insomniac. That’s too bad. I have bouts of insomnia especially when in stress, so I can imagine a bit how it must be like for you. You have my admiration for coping so well ๐Ÿ™‚


          1. I have had it since my teens. Then it was severe. Now it is more sporadic and mostly involves periods of waking each night instead of not being able to sleep at all. I have my kids to thank for exhausting me so much that I usually get some sleep each night.


          2. That sounds quite horrible. You’re making me thankful for my good periods when I sleep sound ๐Ÿ™‚ If I had your boys I would probably sleep 24/7 out of sheer exhaustion…


  4. The opening lines from Robert Frost are a favourite of mine … and a great metaphor for the journey through a challenging day.

    … but I’m at the other end of the clock. Give me the energy and promise of early morning light ๐Ÿ™‚
