Since the pandemic, we spend most days writing letters telling people about God’s Kingdom, and inviting people to the Memorial Celebration of Jesus’ death being held on March 27th worldwide.  With the $200 I’d buy more stamps to send out more letters, but I’d keep out $50  to buy 3 really good Thai lunches of Soft Shell Crabs with Mango Salads for myself, hubby, daughter and 2 friends.  For an invitation to that free event, go to jw.org.

I could do so many things. A facial & massage. Buy pots so I can have some easy maintenance flowers. Go shopping for home decor. Pamper myself with new lotions and essential oils.

I'd book a 90-minute massage to more fully de-stress, tip my masseuse well, and order dinner from my favorite local restaurant, to be eaten over candlelight. Then early to bed, ready to awaken refreshed.

I would get ready to start my vegetable beds ready to plant when the weather warms up.  I am looking forward to shopping for my seeds and plants.  It has been a hard winter and right now it is still cold and western Ne. is getting lots of snow yet.  I could get quite a few of my supplies if I were to be lucky.

I used to be a fantastic gardener until I got older. I had some physical issues that almost took me totally away from gardening.  I couldn’t let that happen so I decided to switch to raised beds last year. I had several installed, planted my seedlings ... and then broke my ankle! The break became complicated and I could not leave the house. My gardens ended up a mess. If I won, I would have the means to get it started again! I would buy more soil and start more seeds and even buy a bench do I could sit out in my sacred place again!

I would spend 2 hours to check out AARP staying sharp; 0.5 hour to do exercise with Denise Austin; 2 hours to spend in the kitchen (I would like to master cooking basmati rice without using rice cooker :)); 1 hour to teach coding to kids; 2 hours not to do anything but thinking (hmmmm .. can thinking be considered as doing nothing?).

I would take my wife and go for a very nice, long drive out of the city. We would hit the road and stay overnight at a hotel. We love to enjoy the fresh outdoors and long to get out after a very long year of lock-down.

I would visit the Missouri Botanical Garden, and visit their gift shop! Then, head over to our local Italian district, The Hill to enjoy an amazing lunch. On the 35 mile trip home, I would stop at our local family-owned garden shop to pick up some beautiful flowers to plant in our home!

Good Day Teri AARP:

I've thought about this for quite a few moments & my ultimate simple in taking everything of the past year into consideration of a Day Off with $200.00.

A day off of work, school, adult responsibilities to actually do nothing absolutely nothing to leave myself be with nothing to do in the Day of off. I can & would enjoy that AARP: A Day off of Simple nothing.
With $200.00 to go along with a day off from everything I would probably save it as a souvenir of surpassing the mexican beer virus where one stupid idea can delete the whole human race; save it for a healthier environment to go out & Enjoy Existence again. 🌻

Thank you for allowing me to express myself in simple Teri

Stay Healthy!!!

I would take the $200 and redo my herb and flower beds that were ravaged by the ice storm recently in Natchez Mississippi. This unusual extreme weather destroyed most landscapes here.
