Labor Day seems to come sooner every year. Weird how time does that the older you get.
I don't have a specific project in mind for this fall. Though judging by how our storage room and attic look, I should take care of them.
2. Tell us about the best perks you ever had in a job?
Of everything that I've ever done, nothing comes close to the perks I enjoy of being a mother.
3. August 31st is National South Carolina Day. Have you ever been to SC? Any desire to go? According to Southern Living, these are the top ten things to do in South Carolina...
Explore Charleston, bike, golf or relax on Hilton Head Island, see the beach and the boardwalk at Myrtle Beach, visit the state museum in the capital city Columbia, observe the wildlife and natural beauty of the Ace Basin, take a walk or hop on a trolley and check out Greenville's charming main street, visit Fort Sumter where the Civil War began, stroll through Pearl Fryar's Topiary Garden in Bishopville leaving time to check out The Button Museum, also in Bishopville, see Morgan Island (also known as Monkey Island)-home to nearly 4000 Rhesus monkeys.
Which is most appealing to you today? If you're a SC native, resident, or frequent visitor what would you add to the list?
We have been to South Carolina several times. We haven't explored everything Charleston has to offer, but we have enjoyed the Straw Market and the girls and I spent a day with a friend who knew all the best thrifting spots.
There are a lot of places I'd like to go, see, and experience. South Carolina wouldn't be my first choice mostly because of the heat.
4. Beef, pork, country-style, barbecued, baby back, spare or short...your favorite kind of rib? What's a dish you enjoy that really 'sticks to your ribs'?
Pork or baby back ribs would be my choice.
A dish I really enjoy that sticks to the ribs is our favorite Mexican meal. We're planning on having it today.
5. What's one important skill you think every person should have? Why?
I think everyone should know how to cook. At least the basic skills of cooking, so they can eat without having to rely on prepared foods.
Growing up in a culture where men didn't do anything in the kitchen, my Mom went against the grain and taught all my brothers how to cook a few dishes, and bake bread and cookies. I'm sure their wives appreciate that a lot.
I wanted all our children to learn as well. The girls can cook and bake anything. Kenneth has his favorite dishes he cooks, not the biggest variety, but enough that he could comfortably fend for himself if needed, and he can follow recipes so really, I think he's set.
Steven has always LOVED the kitchen and really wants to cook. I've started allowing him to do some things with careful supervision. If he keeps this up he'll be our best chef.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
One of LV's nephews is spending a few days with us. We're hoping to go hiking this afternoon if the weather remains favorable.
