An Extra Hour? What Would You Do?

“If I had an extra hour every day I would…”

That was one of the topics for “Postcards with Prompts,” a fun swap-bot postcard series I participated in last year.

Swapper Susan sent the beach-themed postcard above with her response:

If I had an extra hour every day, I would go to the beach and walk on the sand and in the water and collect shells. I love the beach and I don’t go there often enough.”

I can certainly use an extra hour each day. I would use it wisely, of course, and take the extra hour to sleep or read for pleasure. From August to May, there’s never enough of either, and I literally dream of getting sleep and reading something that I don’t have to think about once I turn the last page.

I love the ocean, though, so maybe, I’d simply sit quietly at the beach. I’m certain of one thing–I would not squander my extra hour on work. There’s always too much of that!

What would you do with an extra hour each day?

    I would find a place to be alone. I realize i don’t get enough alone time. It would take a while to get used to that but i believe i would get so much out of it. Nature would call, being creative, and or reading and writing…

      Your plan for the hour sounds perfect! It would be lovely to be able to magically teleport to a destination for the hour. I’d read in a public garden in Vermont, or on a rocky beach in Maine, or in a covered gazebo in a thunderstorm. Ahhh, just thinking about it makes me relax!

    Thanks for reminding me I need to take more time just to go barefoot – either in the grass or on the beach. I can only do that this time of year. I won’t wait for that “extra hour”. Will make time. Have a great day!!!
