The day would be one of relaxation with no thoughts of work. Breakfast outside on the deck followed by a day of leisure. Take a drive  thru a neighboring town. Order my favorite meal for delivery or pick up. Put on some jazz music, candles or essential oils in my diffuser and enjoy as if I were at an expensive restaurant.

I would make an appointment to volunteer for a day at the Oregon Food bank and give them half of the prize money. For the other $100 I would buy some nice food and a bottle of wine and cook a special dinner for my girlfriends, whose company is the most relaxing and uplifting thing I know. ... eating outdoors, of course !

Howdy from Texas! I would give my younger Brother the $.  Unfortunately, he has not been able to find a job and obviously could use the $!  I would love to spend a day at the beach with my wonderful husband and daughter, but I'm not sure if that is really safe with the virus issues.  So, 2nd choice would be staying at home, working on our yard after the deep freeze we experienced in February.  Thank you for this opportunity to share and win... HUGE THANKS TO ALL AARP DOES TO HELP SO MANY!

I will plan to walk to the nearby temple and pray for all. Order for delivery of a delicious course of food and sit with my family and enjoy. Give some food to the poor people on the road side.

I would book an appointment at a salon and get myself a haircut and style treatments. Then I would have a nice lunch somewhere. Then I would take a nice ride to explore a place that I would like to move to.

I would do two things.  First, I would ask my wife to take a mid-morning drive with me.  We'd go north along the ocean on Pacific Coast Highway and follow it up to the vineyard valleys of Lompoc, about a 2 hour drive north.  We'd stop at one of the local vineyards and sample their best wines with cheese and crackers, while overlooking the vineyard hills and valley.  After an appropriate amount of time later, we'd time the drive back along the coast as to pass right along the ocean as the sun sets over the waves.  As I have been working all through the pandemic and she stayed home, she deserves a day for her.

Second, I'd take $100 of the money and donate it to the local food bank and homeless mission.

I would likely spend a relaxing day at home and put the $200 toward upcoming needed dental work, after tithing a portion to a non profit, since I have no dental insurance.

I would take a good day and do my garden.  Put in new soil, get it ready to plant: tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini and I want to try watermelon!

I would take my adult deaf daughter who also struggles daily with mental health challenges to Indian Rocks Beach to stay in a motel on the beach to celebrate our journey. Toast to God for a blessed life. There's always a solution sometimes it takes a lot of attempts but success is in view!

I need days on. Was laid off last March 19th. Still have my keys to work. Not busy enough to bring back office personnel.  Apply for jobs all over. Other states as well. As for the 200 dollars. Pay a bill.

Now that I've had my Covid vaccine, I'd spend the day at a spa-  dry brush scrub to get rid of the dry skin that has built up over the housebound months, massage to perk up those lazy muscles, pedicure for the coming sandal months, and manicure with peachy summer polish.
