I would take a drive to Blowing Rock, NC and stay at my favorite hotel and visit my favorite restaurant. I would also drive in to Boone to visit my favorite General Store.

I would create a picnic, fill a bag with art and birding supplies, and buy enough gas to spend the day out on the prairie, drawing and letting my trusty portable solar oven cook lunch. I might even splurge on ice cream for my food cooler. I haven't had ice cream in a year!

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!!

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 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 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.

And an exciting day at the park and enjoy the singing of the birds and the beautiful sunlight. Enjoying the park but with protection to help myself.

Staying away from others and enjoy the day.

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.
