Joanne said...

I'll choose numbers 4, 5 and 3, in that order. Oh yes, AFTER number 1. Have a great weekend :)

Mason Canyon said...

All of your top ten sound wonderful, especially #1. Have a great weekend.

Thoughts in Progress

Carol Kilgore said...

Joanne - You have a great weekend, too!

Mason - I plan to partake in a few of these this weekend.

Talli Roland said...

Yay for summer - and Fridays!

I'll take reading in a hammock. Bliss!

Laura Eno said...

#1, you betcha! Then a walk on the beach...

Clarissa Draper said...

I'd like to do all of the above. Unfortunately, I'm only doing number 1. But, I guess that's wonderful too.


Helen Ginger said...

I can cross off #1. Yay! May get to see a beach today since I'm within walking distance of Lake Tahoe. And tonight, we'll be having dinner on a boat! It's like you wrote the list for me.

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Excellent activities, Carol - especially #1! Have a great weekend.

Carol Kilgore said...

Talli - with Pimms!

Laura - mmmm ... beaches :)

Clarissa - Of course it is.

Helen - Connected. I'm so jealous. Lake Tahoe is so beautiful. You're there. Another blog friend in Maine. Yet another in Paris. Sigh.

Elspeth - You too!

Jane Kennedy Sutton said...

That's exactly why I'm here at your cool and refreshing site!)

VR Barkowski said...

I'll have a mai tai... Oh, wait. I was so relaxed I forgot where I was for a moment.

Love everything on this list, although it may be a bit too warm for a bike ride today. I'll just spend a little extra time here under the Tiki Hut.

Have a great weekend, Carol!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Since I can visit your blog while in air conditioning, it's at the top of my list, too.

Kathi Oram Peterson said...

I love your top-ten lists. Makes me want to stop and smell the summer roses. :)

Aubrie said...

Oh yeah! #1 all the way!

and I love people watching I just did that today. My husband and I went to Cape Cod and sat at an ice cream place and just watched the people walk by.

Carol Kilgore said...

Jane - Thanks for visiting!

VR - Stay as long as you like.

Alex - Cool :)

Kathi - Always make time to stop and smell the roses.

Aubrie - I love people watching, too.

Patricia Stoltey said...

I did #10 Friday morning -- stopped at Starbucks and instead of running out the door with my drink, I pulled out a chair and sat down. That fifteen minutes was incredibly refreshing.

Rayna M. Iyer said...

# 10 is my favourite too. And for # 1, I need internet!
Great list.

Journaling Woman said...

I love your list, very good list. #10 is my fav too.

Carol Kilgore said...

Patricia - Good for you!

Rayna - I'm glad you found the internet today.

Teresa - Thank you. Now ... go forth and people watch :)

Corra McFeydon said...

How about cozying up for movies while's it's raining? And jogging?

And grilling out - followed by toasted marshmallows?

And baseball!

Of course. Movies are great, especially on a rainy day or in the evening. And jogging - if you like. Grilling ... yum. Baseball? So-so. But loads of people love it.

notesfromnadir said...

Oops, I got sidetracked on Friday! I love your list, can't decide which ones I'd put 1st but I think it'd be walking along the beach. Especially around sunset!

Carol Kilgore said...

I'm a beach person, too.

kimberlyloomis said...

My favorites are 7,6,5,3, and 1. :) Fabulous list, Carol!

Carol Kilgore said...

Glad you found fun things here. How's the foot?
