I will go out into nature and spend a whole day, walking barefoot, wading, in ocean, walking, smelling the flowers, talking to the trees.

I would go to a day spa, get pampered and massaged.  Have a lunch in my spa robe and read a good book.  Have dinner delivered to me at home and continue with a favorite book.  Re-energize!!

I would support a local business (and get a nice bottle of tequila) and have a margarita with the love of my life.

After "Snow-vid" in Texas, losing power and water for three days, all landscaping was killed. I would love to redesign flower beds!

I would buy a feast for my family. Have them over to my house to sit on the patio and watch my grand babies play in the yard.

I would buy an awesome beach blanket, a beach umbrella and a cute picnic basket.  I'd fill it with some cheese, deli meat, french bread, condiments & fresh fruit. I'd put the top down on my 1972 Convertible VW Bug , drive to the nearest gas station and "fill er up" with gas.   I'd then drive down PCH out to Malibu.  I'd find a spot with a great Ocean view and set up, turn on my music and soak in the sun.  For me, the ocean (sun & air)  have some sort of magical healing powers.  Ahhhh!  I can picture it all in my mind.

I would pack a picnic and go with my husband and dog to a place in the country where we could let our 14 year old doggie run around without a leash and play! Then we’d all share a Spring picnic. 🥰🤓

Enjoying the days ahead and praying that we can get through this Pandemic, It's not easy to try to do the things you are used to doing, we have to stay safe at all times. This Virus is not over and it won't be anytime soon. We may as well get with the program and stay safe.

God be with all of you out there, just be safe. I do my best to stay safe and you all should too.

I would get in my car and take a drive to another State somewhere I would feel safe and enjoy myself of course No one is ever safe no matter where you go. No bill paying, no disturbing, no worries just a pleasant day alone to relax my mind and do nothing.

I would stay away from other people. I say be extra careful out there people, this virus is a long way yet from being over. Protect yourselves from everyone. Always wear your mask. $200 dollars would buy more protection for my family and my self.

Share the love with my 2 cousins, ages 2 and 1/2 years. The 2 loveable boys. Take them to lunch and enjoy them while we eat. Spending the day with them would be an exciting moment. That would be a great idea.

I would have my grand kids over who I have not seen in a year because of Covid-19. And order some food and have it delivered. Then we can all sit outside under tent and eat, laugh and catch up with each other. I have missed them so much and now that I am fully vaccinated I can finally see them

I would help buy a plane ticket for my niece to come visit. Been home alone for just about a year now, and she is about to turn 18 next week. I haven't seen her in almost 2 years, so it would be nice to have her here for a weekend.

Just after Thanksgiving 2020, a childhood friend found me on Facebook after I commented on her post, not knowing she was my long lost friend whom I hadn't seen in 50 years. Turns out we live only 50 miles away, but because of Covid we haven't seen each other in person yet. We're now keeping a list of day trips we want to take together after we're both fully vaccinated. I'd love to be able to take her to lunch when we finally meet again in person. We went to school together and were in the same classes from preschool through fourth grade in the late 60s/early 70s. We've got a lot of catching up to do!

I would give $20.00 each to 5 essential workers.

The other $100.00 I would use for a night at a hotel close to where my husband is getting his radiation treatments.

Lovely idea, the panic has caused us to not visit family and friends, It has been a year now that we can't visit our family also do things that we would normally do on a regular basis. it's been terrible for me not being able to do things that I like to do but we must give God thanks that we are still alive.
