Lately, when it rains, it's been pouring. Even through all the rainclouds, there's been some good the last few days too. Birthdays and snowstorms.

Questions from Nancy:
When you were a child, what was your dream job? Do you have that job today?
I always wanted to be a mom. I have that job! I also wanted to be a home ec teacher, but I wasn't sure about job stability with that field.
What are your 3 favorite books?
The Little Red Hen, Bear Wants More and Bearstein Bears Messy Room. Hey, I read more children's books than adult books lately.
If you have to move out of the country, where would you move to?
Not doing it. I'm living on this farm forever!

Can you cook?
Not as good as my husband (who is a trained chef), but he doesn't cook at home. He approves of the things I make him though.
Is there any post you’ve been planning to do, but have been postponing for awhile now?
If you could have any super power, what would it be? Why?
If I didn't have to sleep and would have energy for more projects, I'd love that.
Do you prefer the beach or the mountain? Why?
Both, especially when they aren't flooded with people.
What movie did you love to watch as a child?
We spent more time outdoors than watching movies.
What is something that you learned recently?
How a good rhythm of our day improves everything-learning, my kids behavior, everyone's happiness.
What is your favorite season of the year and why?
I love when the seasons change. That's my most favorite time of year. I cannot choose one.
What TV series do you watch?
I don't watch TV.
