What do you do to unwind? Here's a list of some nice ideas that come to mind for me. I would follow this every night after the fam went to bed if I had a full 10 hours to do it all:
  • Take a warm bubble bath
  • Drink one (or two) of the following: a margarita, a glass of Moscato or White Zinfendel, or an Amaretto Sour
  • Play the piano
  • Sew
  • Read a good, captivating book
  • Go for a walk, then a run
  • Spend some time on Pinterest (I haven't forgotten about you, I swear!)
  • Work on my book (the one living in my head that wants to be down on paper)
  • Paint (why the h. not?)
  • Write in my journal
  • Leave a sweet note somewhere for the hubby
Today my "unwind" was sitting around the table with my mom and aunt. Pizza, wings, and flavored decaf coffee. Little Olive busied herself, and Grandpa held Baby Huck while we all talked. It was a great time. I even had a "lime-a-rita" mixed with some fruity juice. Twas delicious. (I swear I'm not an alcoholic. I'm not.)

To unwind I like to read something light or watch a movie. A leisurely walk can be nice. Talking on the phone to a friend or family member. Play solitaire on the computer if I want to wind down enough to go to sleep.

Your list sounds great. :) I can't sew (yet--so I knit instead), and writing is part of what I have to unwind FROM these days--but besides that, I'd just paste your ideas. :)
