Accomplish much! I will miss the top 10. :(

Slamdunk said...

Looks like an enviable list Carol. Enjoy your time away.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Wow, I haven't played Tiddlywinks since I was a kid. I don't know if my kids even know what it is.

Jennifer Shirk said...

Will miss you!!

Tracy Jo said...

I have tried doing the alphabet backward when I run...seriously can't believe how hard that is! :-) That will keep me busy. I will miss you! Have a great break!

mybabyjohn/Delores said...

Or we could just read back over your past top tens....have a relaxing break.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Enjoy those three weeks!

I'd love to solve the mystery of life! Or would I... hmm. :)

Have a great weekend!

Julie said...

Have a great break, Carol! I promise to have the mystery of life solved by the time you return. :D

And thanks for the heads-up about Ciara's book, that's awesome.

Johanna Garth said...

Enjoy yourself and I'm off to download Ciara's book!

Madeleine Maddocks said...

How about learn to sight read Braille? LOL!

Great list apart from the fact that I really hate that word Bangs. It's fringe over hear which makes so much more sense ;o) LOL!

Carol Kilgore said...

Anne - I hope so, too.

Laura - And the top ten will miss you, too :)

Linda G - I still tackle my own from time to time, with the same result :)

Andrea - Thanks. Anybody can do three weeks, right?

Em-Musing - I'll double up on the fun times for you so you can share :)

Have a great break and see you when you come back! I love that little sand heart, and I can't remember the last time I played TiddlyWinks!

Maryann Miller said...

Have a great respite.

J.L. Campbell said...

Enjoy your time off. I'd try to solve the mystery, except I know there are no answers.

Linda Kage said...

Ugh. I just did number four and it looks awful. Can't wait until my bangs grow out a little longer. See, this is what happens when you leave!!!!!

Liza said...

Enjoy your time off! Love the sand heart!

Carol Kilgore said...

Slamdunk - Figure out the mystery of life while I'm gone, will ya :)

Stina - Neither have I.

Jennifer - Miss you, too :)

Tracy Jo - My mother-in-law could do it really fast. Me, not so much :)

Delores - There you go...perfect!

Colette Martin said...

Enjoy your vacation!

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Just don't spend your time writing blog posts! Or at least, don't spend too much time.

Ciara said...

Thank you so much for the shout out!! I hope you have a fantastic weekend.

Carol Kilgore said...

Alex - I intend to!

Talli - Yeah, I know. Same here.

Carol Kilgore said...

Lydia - I was a kid the last time I played. And I think I only played a few times.

Maryann - I plan to stay busy, so I don't know how much of a respite I'll have.

J.L. - You're a smart woman :)

Linda K - I did that a couple weeks ago. They're longer now :)

You can always help me move! ;)

LR said...

Love the adorable sand heart. Aww.

I have a tendency to wear mismatched socks (at home). So should probably organize the sock drawer.

Wish you a wonderful blog break and lots of productivity (I wish the latter for myself too). :)

Janet, said...

Sounds like you are going to be busy on your break. Hope you accomplish everything you set out to do. I love the heart formed in the sand!

L.G.Smith said...

In other words, another day in the life...

Have a great break. I'll be on a break myself. I am alphabetted out.

Carol Kilgore said...

LR - Thanks for the good wishes. I wish the same for you. Good luck with those pesky socks :)

Janet - I'll be happy to accomplish half of all I need to do. Glad you like the heart :)

L.G. - I'm sure you are. No way could I have tackled A-Z this year. Enjoy!

Journaling Woman said...

Have fun.

Carol Kilgore said...

Okay :)

Christine Rains said...

Enjoy your break! :) I really need to organize my sock drawer.

Carol Kilgore said...

Christine - I think those socks switch partners in the dark.

Nas Dean said...

Is that a natural formation of the rock by the sea?

Have a great time!

Carol Kilgore said...

Nas - No. It's a small sand sculpture at the entrance to SandFest last week in Port Aransas, Texas.

Have a great break. I'll be playing solitaire, but I've been doing that too much anyway.
