Interview meme

Well, the Sassy One (http://www.thesassylime.blogspot.com/) interviewed me, here are her questions and my answers:

1 - how did you come by your love of gardening?
It has just grown over the years; I really love flowers, the colors and the forms, the surprises when I walk out in the yard. I love knowing the names of plants, and knowing how to grow them.
2 - how is parenting different the second time around?
What do you like about being a grandma?
Most of the time it is a lot mellower.. I feel more ‘on top’ of things and can not be so rushed about things. That’s just most of the time, mind you. Being ‘Grandma’ is great- probably because my grandkids are so wonderful and clever and cute and…
3 - outline a typical day in the life of Muum for us:
Let me tell you about today. I got up late, about 6:30 a.m., because I hadn’t slept well in the night. Showered and helped little sis get out the door.
Went to work till noon, then went plant shopping and to the library on the way home. I got some herbs for our herb pots and some other irresistible plants for the yard.
Came home, took a nap and read the funnies. Got up and worked on laundry and other household chores. Did some paper work, watered plants. Talked on the phone to several of my kids. Greeted little sis when she came home from school, and worked on the laundry some more.
Made dinner, and tried (again) to get a photo of the pair of pheasants that I hear and see in the back yard almost daily. The rest of the day is almost as hum drum as what I’ve already written -enough!

4 - did your kids turn out the way you thought they would?
Way better! Seeing you all make great choices and stay faithful to the gospel makes me happy everyday.
5 - If you were to eat your favorite meal (no concern for cost or calories), what would it be? include dessert, of course!
H mm, this is tough. I like so many foods… Grilled salmon from Timber mine, with a great green salad (no iceberg lettuce allowed), and some gooey chocolatey thing for dessert. Milk to drink, of course. Or maybe popeye and mashed potatoes??? Oh! Pizza! Pretty much any kind…(I guess you said meal, not meals…)
