What does your perfect day look like?
My perfect day starts at 7:00am with kids and coffee and cartoons while my wife sleeps in.   Our breakfast would consist of bacon, eggs, French toast, and fruit.  Then my family and I head out into Grand Teton National park where we spend the day trying to outrun a frustratingly determined grizzly bear.  Then we would return to our cabin in the evening (un-mauled) where we would cuddle up by the fire and tell stories until one by one we fell asleep.
