        Oh, now I want to go buy a new box of crayons and a coloring book. Have you ever heard of Praying in Color?

    Congratulations for nearing the “hit send” button! I like just hanging out for fun! I’m not very crafty, but am trying a little craft project (perhaps that’s a response to creating on the computer, now I want to make something with my hands). Baking is always good too, because you get to eat the results.

      Now I’m curious, from one not-crafty person to another: What are you making? And I like to just hang with friends and family too.

    Congrats on *almost* hitting send!


    Hmmmm. Now what do I do for fun?

    Open my maw and start talking? Add a few friends to that equation? We’re talking bail money.

      You crack me up — once again!

    I’m on deadline right now, too…and trying to convince myself it’s fun. Haha! What do I do for fun? Hang out with friends and family and laugh. Laugh a lot. 🙂

      Game night!
      Yes? I love game nights with family and friends.

    I need to put fun on hold while I move from one home to another, but then arranging fun projects w/ grandkids.

      I disagree, Dee. You need to find a moment or two of fun even in the midst of moving. Just a moment or two …

    What do I do for fun? I go out with friends for breakfast. 😉 Actually, I enjoy hanging out with friends. Go to a movie, go try something new (like zip lining or indoor rock climbing) with a friend or hubby, or my kids. Game night with the family.

    I think most of my fun involves hanging out with those I care most about. 🙂

    Congratulations on finishing up those edits!

      For the record: I want to zipline.

    Love that quote! I couldn’t agree more! Fun means laughter and laughter is my favorite!

    Fun lately has been coffee with friends, cooing at babies, teaching my grands Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and Wheels On The Bus (all with hand motions) over Skype, popping into a neighborhood art gallery, re-doing our living room after 22 years and, just last night, a frozen yogurt and flirting date with my hubby. There’s also weekly prayer and fellowship with the best friends ever – 18 years and counting. We’re all grandma’s now. That’s way fun! And, thanks to Teresa, I want to pull out my coloring books!

    Happy Friday all and happy “send” day to you, Beth!

      Everything you listed? Fun, fun, fun!!

    I got used to having fun in small doses – having five minutes to just stop can be gloriously refreshing and, yes, fun.

    It’s kind of like being in temporary defilade from incoming fire – you know that, for the moment, the bullets can’t hit you, and it’s a warm, secure feeling. You know that in a few minutes you’ll have to move out into exposure, but for ‘that moment’ all is right with the world.

    I like browsing the craft store! 🙂

      I browse the craft store … when I buy, I’m usually getting supplies for my daughters.

    Fun for me is being around my little grands. They have the best time doing the simplest things…maybe we should learn something from them! Today I went to read to my grandson’s third grade class. That was great fun!

      How fun is that, Melanie? Reading to your grandson’s class … love it!

    Wish I lived closer and I’d clean so you’d only have one thing on your list. I have a friend who loves Jimmy Buffet. I need to share this with her.

    The quote is perfect for the upcoming weekend.

      If you lived closer, Kim, you would not be cleaning my house. We would be hanging out together, talking, laughing …

    Hi Beth,
    For fun, I like to play volleyball with friends. My sister has finally convinced me to join her in playing tennis, as well. Other than that, the family game night and family movie night is a favorite.

    Congrats on hitting send!
