Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
I am a little late today getting the lovely Meme that Patrice does each week.
Life has a way of getting in the way of blogging sometimes. :)
Here are your questions for the day:
1. What season was your wedding? If you aren't married, the what season is your birthday?
I was married in the spring. Lovely, lovely spring. I am glad that 31 years have gone by to forget all of the fiasco involved. :)
2. What names did you call your grandparents?(ie- grandma, granny, gran, grammie)
My grandparents that I lived next door to were who I was closest to were Mama and Papa.
My Dad's Mom I called Granny Johnson, my grandpa on that side died the year I was born.
My Grand mother had divorced and remarried,
so Her first husband, was my Grandpa Sam. Most awesome man on the face of the earth.
I wish I had got to spend more time with him, but my Grandmother was a force to be reckoned with when he came to town. He looked like Ronald Reagan, he was the smartest man I ever met and such a deep thinker and he was a inventor, farmer, dreamer, philosopher. He led me to the Lord when I was in my 20s. He also played minor league baseball. The day I beat him at checkers was one of the highest honors I ever received. Then I turned around and beat him again. Then I wouldn't play him anymore because I would have lost my crown. He never let me forget that.
3. What's your favorite smell that comes from your oven?
Anything that is in there. Well, except pizza from the pizza shop, at night.
4. If you eat eggs- scrambled, fried, over easy, sunny side up, or other?
My husband makes the best turkey ham, cheese, vegetable omelet most mornings.
He is a wonderful breakfast cook. I am not. So he cooks breakfast. I am so glad he feeds
me. He was out of town yesterday, and I never thought to eat until he texted me to tell me
he was coming home, then I remembered. He calls me when he is on his lunch hour,
so I always remember to have lunch after that, he was busy and couldn't call so I didn't
remember to eat lunch either. I guess he is my trigger to eat. I never cook dinner for me but
for him. I don't think I would ever cook if it was for me.
5. What's the tidiest room in your house? What's the messiest?
My house is always clean. I can't live with messy or clutter. There are to many people who live here. We would look like a
episode of the hoarders if I wasn't always cleaning. I guess you could say, when it is messy, it
is because I have a project going on, but I always have everything cleaned up and put away
when my husband gets home from work. I had so many young kids for so long that I couldn't
leave things out so I just got into that habit. Not to mention the years we lived in a 1000 square
foot house with 5 kids, there was just no room to keep things. The kids also have always kept their rooms clean. I can't settle down in my mind if my house is dirty.
Thanks to Patrice for her questions this week.
