The next two questions go together quite well:
Kathy said... Before anyone takes mine...
Define and describe in detail your perfect day from sun up to sun down, from food to activities.
Anyway, as for Kathy's question...
My perfect day would begin with sleeping in-no waking up to screaming children. Although come to think of it I wouldn't sleep too long lest I get too lazy and groggy. My darling husband would have already made the coffee-just like every day. (He's a gem, that one.) I would go for a long walk-about 5 miles.
I would then have something yummy for breakfast-eggs benedict sounds good since I just burned those calories! And maybe a mimosa, just because.
For activities it would depend on a few things-who was around to do something with! I love spending the day playing with the kids at the beach. Ooh-I know! Reading a great book on the beach with a pool boy to bring me fruity drinks! That would be a great day. If my mom, aunt, and Alice were around I would love to pick through a large craft show or a really good antique shop finding perfect *stuff*. If Headless Girl was around, and there were no limits on the budget, I would love to take her shopping. Well, that is if she was actually in the mood to buy something.
Probably the greatest day, though, would be to spend it with Headless Dad. We get very few days together that don't involve some sort of housework, yard work, kid work, etc. that it would be a real treat. Wine tasting, maybe? He's not so much for the shopping so I don't really know what we would do but it would be great to just be able to BE, together.
As for dinner I would probably want to just eat in. HD makes a mean filet and then if we weren't out I could drink
My favorite way to end the day? Well, when HD is working I love to read in bed, watching the news, maybe with a small, yummy treat. Blogging is a viable alternative in that scenario. Alas, that happens all of about 3 times a year.
The absolute best way to end the day? To crawl in bed, next to the love of my life, snuggle in, and know that I am the luckiest woman in the world to be blessed with amazing kids, and a husband who loves me beyond my wildest dreams.
