Friday Five: Taking a Break



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
2. an afternoon off
3. an unexpected free day
4. a week's vacation
5. a sabbatical

(It's possible the coffee is a hint at my interests...)

As always, leave a comment if you play, and to encourage visitors to your blog, add a direct link to your post, using the following formulation:
<a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a>

For a complete how-to, click here.

  5. I am a west coaster and got myself all mixed up reading this on Thursday evening. It was a crazy day today, with emergencies right and left, and I began to think somehow Friday had rushed past without my even noticing, which means the memorial service and son's ski trip are tomorrow and...

    Having sorted that out, I am feeling much better and now look forward to reading Friday 5's tomorrow!

  19. Thanks Songbird. I don't have time today to read everyone's. I don't comment, but I do enjoy reading. I have a funeral this afternoon and I need to get moving on getting everything in order. I played here.

    My blog did a strange thing. When I went to the blog url, it was blank. I had to click on the most recent post. So, I'm not sure what you'll see when you click through to the link.

  20. jc, I noticed that at another Blogger blog today. When in doubt, do a "hard refresh." (Which is to say, refresh while holding the shift key.)
