This week I joined a new forum called The Dressing Room. It's a fun group of moms who are crafters, photographers, bloggers, WAHMs, and more. Each week there will be a blog assignment, and here is the assignment for this week!
What is your idea of a perfect summer day? What's the weather like? What do you enjoy doing on those days? Is this the norm for summer days in your area of the world?
My perfect summer day is sunny and 75 degrees with just a light breeze- Not strong enough to blow the picnic blanket away, but strong enough to keep the mosquitoes in check. My daughters wake up in a great mood and we head out for a hike at Devil's Lake. We'd bring a picnic lunch which we'd eat while we spread out on a warm flat rock along the trail. The bugs miraculously stay away and no one complains about applying sunblock. On the drive home, both girls fall asleep and my husband doesn't make me listen to this "awesome new band" he found on Pandora that week. We go home, grill out and the girls go to bed without a fight. I get to do some sewing, maybe watch a movie with Tim, and get to bed at a somewhat reasonable hour.
All of this is possible, except for the part about the "awesome new band" and the girls going to bed without a battle-- Those are just pipe dreams!
