A Whole Day to Yourself--What Would YOU Do?


Sweetheart is taking over tomorrow and I'll have the day to myself. What would you do? I've got a few ideas floating around, but would love suggestions...

I'll miss my boys, I know, but it is so refreshing to just have a day.

*****Edited to add later:

I'm thinking breakfast at the Devil's Food Bakery. Then spend a little time wandering around the neighborhood by the bakery. The Tended Thicket and Pome are two unique and delightful shops. There is also a large park, Wahington Park nearby.

I'm planning on bringing one of my Everything Books, my watercolor pencils, and the camera. This is also a fun place to browse, but completely on the other side of town. We'll see...

A day to myself wow what a concept!! I would read and crochet maybe and have tea while doing it,lounging with soft music playing in the backround,maybe the soft scent of a candle too.... what the heck if its a day just for me!!

Grab your Mom and come here!!

I just took the chairs up to the to deck on the third floor....I'm planning on reading and drinking coffee for the first part of the day...then we could take a drive to New Hope/Lambertville on the Delaware River.
Check out the galleries and have a late lunch!!

Just dreaming......

How sweet! I would find a used book store with a coffee shop and browse and sip coffee (not a tea drinker here)... maybe find a vintage shop or two to look through... or a thrift store I haven't been in before...

Enjoy yourself! I can't wait to here how you spend your day!

I would go out for a manicure/pedicure/haircut/whatever else suits your fancy :)

I usually don't get days to myself, and it's hard to bring a little guy along to those kind of places.

Of course, having coffee somewhere in a little bookshop or a bubble bath with candles at home sound nice too :)

What a sweet gift from your husband! I know you will enjoy your alone time. I can't wait to hear about it!

Hmmm....I would probably sit around trying to decide what I wanted to do!!
Sew/quilt/tat
Scrapbook
antique shop
bookstore/library
stay in bed curled up with a good book

Sounds wonderful! If I had a day, one thing I would do is go to Elizabeth's Embellishments too! I love that place, but my girls... do NOT. :) I hope you had (are having?!) a restful and quiet day to yourself.

Your day out alone sounds wonderful! I would go for an early breakfast, then some browsing/shopping/retail therapy, reading (Uninterrupted), bubble bath, journaling, cup of tea, possibly late lunch . . . I am going to have to do this sometime soon!

That's a sweet picture of you and your little boy. It's nice to see you once in awhile. Take care.
