1. What are your ingredients for a perfect Saturday?
Let's see. My hubby would have the entire day off and we would have no commitments. We would go out to breakfast, a hearty enough meal that we can skip lunch and take a hike, or at least a nice long walk. We could perhaps spend a little time talking about how we're doing spiritually or have a time in God's Word together. In the afternoon we could take a scenic drive that ends up in a supper picnic on a lake shore or riverbank.
Grammar usage and punctuation. Misplaced apostrophes trouble me. I'd like to see proper use of words as well. Spell check has really turned this into a problem. For example, "sneak peak" -- which I have seen a hundred times if I've seen it once. It should be "sneak peek." A peak is a mountain. Seen any mountains sneaking around lately?

Hmmm ... remember those little wax bottles with colored sugar water (or something) in them? They looked like tiny little soda bottles. The idea was to bite off the end of the bottle, drink the liquid, and then, if one was so inclined, to chew up the bottle. I did consume one or two of those in my day, though I was more a fan of their cuteness than of their taste. Something I would never even consider eating these days! The same is probably true of lots of candies ... Necco wafers, for instance.
Can you believe these things are still being manufactured and sold? I found them, and the photo, here: Old Time Candy.
4. Something parenting has taught you? If you're not a parent tell us one important lesson you learned from your own parents.
I feel as if I was very inadequate as a parent and that I failed in many ways. I think I'm learning to leave that with the Lord, realizing that I did the best I could with what I knew at the time.
One thing I learned from my own parents was how important it is to spend good quality time with grandchildren. They were so good at it!

6. Insert your own random thought here.
Just made the first Tuna Pasta Salad of the season. It's a warm sunny day and my hubby is back to work now that mud season is over. He'll have a long commute -- probably an hour and a half -- so I'm sure he'll be tickled to see one of his favorite summer main dishes on the table for supper.
