I’m getting a jump on “Aloha Friday” this week!
In Hawaii, she says, “Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.”
I can’t really say that Friday is any less frantic than any other day of the week here, but I like the idea. Wouldn’t you love to be on “island time?”
I’m participating in Kailani’s Aloha Friday and I thought I’d bring a bit of the islands to Everydaywoman. I’ll be posting a simple question to stir up a little conversation before the weekend. If you’d like to participate, please respond to the question in a comment, and feel free to post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!
My “Aloha Friday” question this week is:
IF YOU HAD A WEEK OF VACATION TO SPEND AT HOME,
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

and please add your thoughts!!!
Just because some of you have asked . . .
here’s an update of what I’d do!!!
Funny you should ask because that’s exactly what I have next week—a week off from school (spring vacation) and no exotic destination, unlike some of my students and colleagues, who are going to the Florida Keys, St. Johns, London, the Galapagos Islands, etc. I’m going to be home and and am very HAPPY about that!
Here’s what’s on my list:
* Finish and mail taxes before the April 15th deadline (always seems to coincide with April vacation for me!)
* Complete some school projects, working from home and school a bit, and to get a jump-start on what comes next.
* Rollerblading and lunch out with my daughter (remembering what it was like to be home when our children were young—-I SO loved that!)
* Long walks around the farm; walks in the sand at the beach
* Planting painsies in outside planters (a rite of spring for me!)
* Making Easter baskets for our kids and other family members
* Baking special treats for Easter
* Making more home-cooked meals!
* Shuttling my Mom to doctor appointments, etc., and probably out to lunch
* Riding around topless–or should I say top-down? (in my little red ride, that is!)
* Catching up with my list of “to do” things
* Shopping trip with my daughter to get a few items for an upcoming business trip to D.C. and another special event
* More school work
* Blogging and reading blogs
* Is the week over yet? (I’m sure I’ll be out of week before I’m out of things on my list!)
Most of all, I’m going to relish the time home, because I’m away from home too much these days. I hope for some warm spring days to spend time outside, doing all the things I love to do!
