My Typical Evening

We all have different things that we do in the evening that are relaxing, things that help us wind down after the day’s events, whatever they may have been. Often, it’s the time of day where we find solitude; a short while that we get all to to ourselves – and, sometimes, in the quiet company of others.

There’s a certain way in which we go about winding down at the end of the day, and everybody’s routine is different. This post is going to be what a typical evening looks like for me as of recently. Sit back, grab a cozy blanket, relax, and enjoy! ๐Ÿ’šโ˜•


Write a blog post. I started this blog just over a week ago, and in that amount of time, I’ve gotten back into the joyful habit of writing blog posts! I’ve had several blogs in the past, and I loved getting to share my thoughts on them. This is the first blog in a long while that I’ve kept up with and enjoyed posting on. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Work on a puzzle. For Christmas, I got four beautiful Disney puzzles! I have thoroughly enjoyed working on them in the weeks since I got them. So far, I’ve completed one (special thanks to my mom; she helped a lot), and right now, we’re working on the Peter Pan puzzle. We have about half of it left to do:

Read a book. Most days, I prefer reading earlier in the day. However, I’ve been reading as much as I can of Forever With You by Robin Jones Gunn recently – are there any other Christy Miller fans out there? ๐Ÿ˜

Watch a movie or TV show. This is my favorite part of the evening! Some nights, I’ll watch an episode or two of Everybody Loves Raymond with my mom; other nights, I’ll cozy up in a blanket, sit on my bed, and watch an episode of Poirot by myself (I love portable DVD-players!).

Listen to music. I love listening to music throughout the entire day, and I’ve been happy to listen to Ed Sheeran’s new song, Castle on the Hill, any time of day! If you haven’t listened to it yet, you need to. Click here to watch the lyric video!

Watch YouTube videos. Recently, I haven’t been watching very much YouTube. If I’m using the app, it’s really only been to listen to music. However, if I am in the mood to watch a YouTuber, I’ll watch Emily (minimalist) or Amelia Liana (lifestyle vlogger)! Go check them out! ๐Ÿ’œ

Once my evening has come to an end (which is usually around 10:30 or 11 PM), I’ll get ready for bed (brush teeth, change clothes, boring stuff lol) then go to sleep. Hope you enjoyed! Thanks for reading, and have a good evening/night!

What is YOUR favorite thing to do in the evening?

How cosy! Sounds great – I’ll have to check out the Ed Sheeran song. And I’m thrilled that you’re a Hercule Poirot watcher!!! He’s such a lovable character, and the mysteries are always interesting! A good book just before bed is so comforting…

You definitely should; I love that song!
I can’t believe that you’re a Poirot fan, too! I love his character, as well as the rest of the main cast. Watching him solve the mysteries, as well as attempting to solve them myself, are both so fun! And yes, I definitely love reading before bed ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ“–


I love this post Maggie! I’m wanting to go back and read all your old posts now that I just read your most recent post. My favourite things to do at night is read whether that be books or blogs. As well as having a nice warm cup of tea and praying before bed. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค
