Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
I am linking today with Everyday Rurality.
It is time for this weeks questions.
1. Alison asks: What's the biggest obstacle you've overcome or need to?
Fear. Sometimes I get so fearful I am frozen. I think I have been working to overcome it all of my life. Sometimes I see it creep into my posts and It upsets me but always it is there. When I was younger I was agoraphobic. I couldn't leave my house. I was so trapped and I had to overcome it step by step. I started by just walking out to the end of my driveway. It threatens to return all of the time. I make myself go out and drive and yes, sometimes I get so sick with panic that I think I will faint but I just keep pushing through it. That is why blogging has been so good for me, because it forces me to interact with people. I can't believe I am sharing this.
2. Julia asks: If you won $100,000 what changes would you make?
I would give it all away. I don't think I would change my life as it is now. God did so much to get me here. I am very thankful for the place I am and since the robbery's at my brothers house, I have really thought about what is important to me and it is my friends and family and my relationships.
3. McGuffy Ann asks: What's the most unusual pet you've had?
My raccoon. I loved my raccoon, she was like my child. She went everywhere with me. Even when I swam in the swimming pool she hung on to my back. I took her for rides in my car and I loved her so much. I always thought of getting another one sometime or maybe even a fox. I do enjoy taming animals. Maybe a bobcat.
4. When do you start decorating for Christmas?
The day after Thanksgiving and it all comes down December 26th.
5. What's your favorite type of magazine to read?
Sewing or County Living or cooking ones or decorating ones. I like them all.
Thanks to Patrice and all of the really nice questions this week.
