Aloha Friday # 59

December 4, 2008

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Today’s question is:

What have you been putting off doing?

What I have “NOT” been putting off is eating and sleeping and daydreaming. (I thought it was better to state it this way instead of taking up the entire space on your comments page listing what I am putting off.)

Dee said:

I’ve been putting off putting up some lights on the outside of the house, also I’ve put off making some personalized ornaments for my brothers and sisters but I’m busy working on that now, so I can cross it off of my list!

I sent your ornament off today and I told the post office person it was fragile, now I’m praying that you get it all in one piece.
Pray with me
