RevGals Friday Five: Taking a Break

Over at RevGalBlogPals, our dear Songbird writes: Where we live, it's February School Vacation Week!
Yes, that's an odd thing, a vacation extending President's Day. But it's part of our lives here. Some people go South or go skiing, but we always stay home and find more humble amusements.

In that spirit, I offer this Taking a Break Friday Five. Tell us how you would spend:

1. a 15 minute break: Catching up on fellow BlogPals. Perhaps with a sweet snack handy.

2. an afternoon off: I have the yarn for a new knitting project.... an afternoon would yield quite a bit of progress with it (it's straight knit, to be done on big needles).

3. an unexpected free day: I'd probably just assess the factors that morning and decide what to do right then. Could be productive errand-running, could be eating at some restaurant that's not normally in my path, could be reading, or dog-walking... or all of it!

4. a week's vacation: If money's no issue? Y'all, I'm heading back to Alaska! Thinking more practically, though, perhaps later this year we'll visit a national park in the lower 48, or just rambling around in New Mexico and seeing where I wind up.

5. a sabbatical: First, I'd be serious about home organization and up-sprucing. Then, I'd begin scheduling visits to friends with whom I haven't spent enough time in recent years.

Could you come organize me? Then I can go on a sabbatical guilt-free. :)

praying for your friend and his family...

I have always wanted to go to Alaska.

I LOVE to organize as long as I am doing it for someone else.

Alaska in the winter? Nah!

Sounds like fun...I spent the morning crocheting while waiting around in a hospital waiting room.

Just makes me laugh!

I love the idea of visiting friends on a sabbatical. And I've added your friends to my prayer list.

Kathrynzj said...

Alaska's good. I also like the idea of driving around and visiting friends.

Diane said...

I am right with you on the organizing - it's not my favorite thing, but OH it would be nice to have the time to do it.

Praying for Steve and his family.

Home organization is one of the things I hope(d) to accomplish on my sabbatical. Thus far (three weeks in), I've cleaned the kitchen. But I've gotten a lot of knitting and writing done!

My next knitting project is a surprise for a friend.... haven't quite started it yet. Perhaps during the Oscars.
