Question Time

    Every weekend I will have a blog post where I ask and answer questions.  It is a good way for readers to get to know more about me and also helps me to get feedback on a number of questions. Summer is a time for ice cream. If you like ice cream, what is your favourite flavour?   Grapenut is definitely No.1 for me.
    As usual I am participating in Friendship Friday hosted by Create With Joy where this week the theme is Vacation. 1. What are your plans for vacation this summer?  I do not have any special vacation plans but I will take a trip to one of Jamaica's tourist resorts, Ocho Rios, from time to time. I went there today but it was not a sporting trip. 2. How often do you take a vacation from your blog?  I have not taken a real vacation from my blog since I started back in March 2011. However Hurricane Sandy sent me on a vacation last year as I had no electricity for some weeks.

We plan to travel to Spain this vacation and I'm so excited about it. I'm kind of taking vacation from my blog for some months now due to school, work and family. My posting have not been steady and I've not visited some blogger friends for a while:-).

MikiHope said...

I do like like to travel--but I do occasionally take a day or two off from my blog--usually to read the books I ultimately will be writing reviews about.

Judy Haughton-James said...

It is great that you will be going to Spain Nekky! Have a whale of a time. All the very best to you and your family.

Judy Haughton-James said...

I bought some books today MikiHope. I need to take time out to read them and do some reviews too.

Coffee Lovers Ice Cream from Cold Stone. The best.

Have a terrific day. ☺

Patrice said...

I love to travel, but my husband only gets one week off a year. We aren't traveling until the fall. I haven't taken a vacation from the blog since I started in December, 2011.

Judy Haughton-James said...

I would love to try that ice-cream Sandee. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks a lot for the feedback Patrice. Enjoy the rest of your week.

Sierra Kenzie said...

Vanilla ice cream with caramel whirls in it...

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Betty!

Judy Haughton-James said...

I like vanilla ice cream and those caramel swirls will make it just perfect Kriss! I could do with some right now as it is a hot here in Jamaica.

Theresa said...

Just took a 4 day vacation from blogging due to the power being out. That wasn't by choice though. I can't say I've scheduled a vacay away, but was getting a little burned out for a few. I think I need to take a few more breaks throughout the year to refresh my mind so I can keep chugging away.

I love vanilla ice cream!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Welcome back Theresa! The storms certainly send us on vacation from our blogs. I know what you mean by feeling burnt out at times. I should take a break from time to time. Vanilla ice cream is really lovely. Have a great weekend.

Linda Bouffard said...

I took 6 months off from my blog a few years ago. I've been blogging for 4 1/2 years. I was burnt out! I'm full steam ahead now, though. :) I see that you are also! Take care and have a great summer. Linda

Thanks a lot for your feedback Linda! A great summer to you too.

Mint chocolate ice cream is my favorite! My husband and I are going to the beach twice this summer (which sounds like a lot but we live like 2 hours away from it), once for a camping weekend in July and again in August for a Christian Retreat week (assuming we can find the money for lodging...). I take random breaks from my blog WAY more often than I should, which could be why I have trouble growing it. But I am trying really hard to stay on top of it right now!

Unintended vacations through power outages are not fun. I hate when the power goes out. We went 21 days without power the year I left Florida because 3 hurricanes in a row came through. We had no damage with #1 or #2, but #3 got us pretty good. No stove, no Internet, and cold showers, ugh, we were ohhhh so glad when the power came back on. :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Power outages due to a storm or hurricane are not nice at all Rosey! I live in a rural area and we don't get back electricity quickly in such a situation. I hope the storms and hurricanes keep away this year. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Z said...

Mint Chocolate ice cream sounds delicious Rachel! Enjoy yourself at the beach and I hope you get to attend the Christian Retreat.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Have a wonderful time with your parents Z! Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Maria said...

Yay for a vacation to Ocho Rios!! I can't wait to see your photos and read all about it! That will be so much fun, and I'm sure very relaxing for you!
I haven't been blogging as much with everything going on, and I can't wait to start writing more soon.
wishing you a happy Monday, my friend! xoxoxo

Judy Haughton-James said...

I look forward to taking photos whenever I go there Maria. My thoughts and prayers are with your father, you and your family. Be strong and keep the faith my friend.
