The Best Time

This Post was written for Fandango’s Dog Days of August #29

Today’s Prompt is: The Best Time

There are many good times in a day for me. I adore those moments walking with and sharing time with Lucy Dog. I enjoy it when time stands still as I try to get a picture of a deer or bird. I relax during those times when I’m writing stories and sharing them with you my bloggers. I really enjoy that minute when I realise the work is done for day as I sit with a nice cup of tea in hand.

That said, the best time for me is when the day draws toward its close as its then I connect with and chat with my friends until bedtime.

A kestrel at a moment when time stood still for me.

Thanks for reading my friends. As always there are more stories to be enjoyed (I hope) in the Short Stories and Short Stories 2 tabs. There’s also poetry here in Poetry Corner

Have a great day!

  1. Lovely shot of the kestrel! And thankful for your lovely meditation. I’m thinking you feel like that kestrel at “the best time” — a blessing to revel in! Naturally with Lucy by your side 😉

      1. No kidding, nothing is more healing for the mind and soul than a walking the woods. I would say body too but having tripped over several hundred tree roots, its not so good for the body lol

  2. I bet I know Lucy’s favorite times of day – walkies times!! Love the photo of the Kestral; it’s a mesmerizing sight. 💕


      1. So lovely to have all that nature around you. I could send you a picture of the smog out here, but that’s about it, unless you want to hear the cicada’s mating… you don’t. 😉😂

  3. The time I spend walking with my dog is special, but she’s pretty old now and she can’t walk as far or as long as she used to (nor at the pace we used to keep). I’m not sure how much longer she will grace my life.

  4. My dad used to live on a street named Linden. It was a classic neighborhood with a variety of mature trees. He liked gardening and was an artist, among other things.

    I have fond memories of climbing trees (although not in the neighborhood with the street called Linden). How blessed you are to have a tree to climb!

    The photo is beautiful.

    1. Thank you, Marleen. I bet the oldest of the trees were Linden trees on that street then.

      I love to be able to go and sit in that tree in the woods when I need to relax and be at peace for a while.
