1. What are your ingredients for a perfect Saturday?
A perfect Saturday for me is one with lovely weather, and having my husband at home. The past however many Saturdays he has been doing maintenance on machinery for a business so that everything is in order come Monday and the workers return for another week.
It looks as if this will be the theme of many Saturdays to come.
A skill I wish more people used is to keep right on scrolling when they see something they don't agree with on Facebook or elsewhere on the internet. It's really not that hard.
A practical life skill ... cooking.
3. What's something you ate as a child you can't stand now as an adult?
It's nothing that exciting or a weird combination of anything. It's simply ... oatmeal. The older I get the more I loathe it.
Our children on the other hand, will have a better answer to this once they're older. At least I hope they'll grow out of loving peanut butter, chocolate chip, and mustard sandwiches.
4. Something parenting has taught you? If you're not a parent tell us one important lesson you learned from your own parents.
Parenting has taught me a lot but especially that time is extremely short. I think I may have approached it with the mind set that their childhood will be as long as I thought mine had been. I've learned time is precious and to not push off the things I want to do "someday".
5. Share a favorite quote or saying about mothers or motherhood.
Your children don't want or need a perfect Mom, they want a happy one.
This is a quote that has meant a lot to me over the years. I'm far from perfect, but I can be happy.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Some of our favorite things to do on lovely spring afternoons is hiking or playing at the creek. Yesterday provided us with some time to do that before a rain shower popped up and chased us back to the house.
