Blog Challenge September – Escape

The Herding Cats & Burning Soup September blog challenge is Escape.

When a weekend away isn’t in the cards, several other activities can make a good escape. Yoga is always a good reboot. An hour of stretching with relaxing music lets me tune everything else out. A couple hours of tennis works, too.

My hubby and I take the dogs for a long walk at the park every morning. It is a relaxing start to our day—an escape of sorts—unless the chiweenie acts like psycho dog. The dogs love the walk as well. Watching the sun rise in the early morning over the large pond at the park is peaceful. The ducks and geese that live there are fun to watch.

Painting and writing are good escapes. Concentrating on a painting or figuring out what to do with characters and putting them in tough situations will take my mind off everything else.

On the flip side to writing a book, reading a book is a good escape. I’m currently reading Vicki Pettersson’s The Scent of Shadows. So far, it’s a good read. I just finished, Kelley Armstong’s Omens and really enjoyed it. I will be reading the rest of that series.

A good movie can be an escape, too. Recently, we watched Game Night with Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams. It has two of my favorite actors in the first place, but it was hysterical. I can’t wait for Game Night Two—I hope they decide to make one.
