She asks that we share how we would spend:
1. a 15 minute break
I would make a cup of tea or coffee and spend some time catching up with blogs I like.
2. an afternoon off
I am about to have too many of those, but I'll ignore that for now. I would go shopping, preferably with my daughter or a friend. I want SPRING clothes. Don't remind me that it is frigid outside. I do not care. I need color.
3. an unexpected free day
I need pampering. I think I would like a great haircut and style, a pedicure, a manicure, and a really good massage, please.
4. a week's vacation
Assuming I have a plane ticket and plenty of money, I would head to California and visit Betsy and Sophia and Presby Gal, and others. I'd eat California Mexican food, spend a couple of days in the mountains, and the rest of the time I'd veg on the beach. The beaches will, of course, be empty because it is February and Californians think it is too cold to be at the ocean.
5. a sabbatical
I had one a while back. I posted about it. It was the most stressful sabbatical imaginable, because while I went to some lovely places I was wrestling with the Lord for six weeks. I'm surprised that I didn't come back with a permanent limp (like Jacob). This time would be different. I would go somewhere with a beautiful church, a lovely setting in nature, and a fabulous library. I would study and study and pray and sit and....go to church in completely different traditions than my own.

I spent some time there on my sabatical.
