I enjoy a long weekend in Quebec City

I love snuggling with my daughter.

I love when my son falls asleep in my arms.

I love snow days (I'm a teachers so it's still fun for me!) and just laying around the house when I am supposed to be at work.

I love spending a few hours at a coffee shop with a good friend.

When I am not being a mom, teaching, or cooking I enjoy watching movies with my husband, reading a good book, or working on a quilt with my sister-in-law.

hmmm, favorite things to do...

I love going to work and working, yet I really love when I don't have to work and do nothing.
Riding my ATV is nice, but I really love riding my motorcycle. That's probably my favorite thing to do.
Right now my favorite thing to do is wish for spring

hmm, I don't have any hobbies anymore. I used to LOVE cutting wood with dh's scroll saw. I love to draw and would draw on the wood and cut them out. I have some hanging on my wall to remember it. Just don't have time anymore.
I am going to try my hand at knitting. Never did it or saw how before. I'm going to buy a book and ATTEMPT to teach myself. LOL
Other than that, I do love to just sit outside at night and listen to the sounds and feel the air and look at the stars.

I taught myself to knit, Texas. I just had trouble with the casting on and the binding off so I carried my yarn and needles with me everywhere and generally found women who could help me with those things. Oddly, I had no trouble following directions in books for even complicated stitch patterns. My grandma taught me to crochet when I was a teen and I find it easier.

I am part of a modern dance company. We spend a lot of time rehearsing and I also teach a weekly class. I love dancing. It comes second only to my family. Its like meditation for me. I forget all of my problems, let go of any stress and just dance.

Spending time with my family is the best! My boys are growing so fast. Too fast. I love hearing them laugh and play together and I love it when one of them falls asleep on my chest.

Reading books, drinking tea, browsing alone in a book store, my sister and anything related to her. She's my best friend.
