Get to Know Me: What Do You Do On the Weekends?

I’m a member of an author/book reader facebook group, and the admins ask great questions. I decided to turn some of the questions into a “get to know me” series. I would also love to hear your answers to the questions posed in the series. Thanks Helen for asking such fun questions!

What do you do on the weekends?

When my kids were much younger and in traditional school during the week, we would have little adventures (as I barely had money for gas or food). They loved it as I made everything into an adventure. Instead of going out to eat a full meal somewhere, we’d go have a $1 ice cream cone or just a side order of fries. We’d go to the park and read, throw the frisbee, go for walks, toss water balloons, and simply go for drives, or go through the car wash (that’s still an adventure … we all pile in the car when I announce that it’s car wash time!) Beautiful memories!!

My 19 year old special needs daughter, Lillian, is graduated now and my 15 year old is homeschooled, so we stay home on the weekends when everyone else is out and about (before COVID, anyway) and have our date days and adventures, shopping and what not during the week.

To finally answer the question, we just hang out at home, reading, watching movies, having pizza or nachos on Saturday night, and doing some cleaning and washing.

Your turn …. What do you do on the weekends?

See It. Share It. BE IT … Spread Love Everywhere You Go!
