If it's late at night, then unless someone else has a better idea I get an early night's sleep.
If it's evening, I have been known to put out some candles, open a bottle of wine and enjoy good company. That may well include the company of a six-string bedfellow for music and song.
If it's daytime, and the kids are around, we'd probably watch the lightning and rain for a while and then start with the board games or lego.
And, if I'm totally alone, then I'll use up the battery on my laptop, writing new stuff for my books, blogs or screenplays.
Mostly, though, I confess to really, really liking to sit on the porch watching the lightning streak across the heavens.
