Michaela:  If I came to your home, what would we do? Where would we go? What would we eat? What would you most want to show me in your real life world? 
It depends on the season. Right now we are still in pool mode. We'd probably hang out at the pool. Play games. And EAT! Something on the grill. Salmon, probably. And some great garden veggies. I love to serve fresh fruit with every meal. Peaches and watermelon are good this time of year.

In spring or fall I'd take you to the gardens. I love sharing my gardens with visitors. We'd sip lemonade and gab. We might make a bonfire and sing hymns and camp songs until late at night or pull out croquet and laugh at how pathetically I hit a ball.

If it was Christmas season we'd bake some cookies, sip eggnog and sing carols by the tree in the living room. If there was snow we'd take some fast rides down the hill on the side and make a bonfire. Eventually, we'd come in to sit by the wood stove and drink hot chocolate with grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup.

If it were a Friday we would likely make home made pizza and watch a video in the family room. And if it was football season you'd bet we'd take in a game... preferably the Rams but maybe a local high school game.

I love to share our home with others so you would likely get sick of hearing all about what's happening in our current project. If Allen is working on something (which he always is), I might even put you to work.

We love to play board games so we'd probably pull out a few after dinner and have some laughs.

Both my mother's and father's family excelled in the gift of hospitality and I feel I am succeeding when my guests kick off their shoes, let their hair down and have a good time.

If I came to your home, dear reader, what would we do?  What would we eat?
