Off to Play and Extra Links

My classes over the last two days were very successful and I had a great time!  I got some good and much needed rest last night and have a huge mountain of things that need my attention, but today I just want to ignore them and run away to play.  Which is pretty much what I am going to do...
But first, I will give you this week's Extra Links
