visit with Patrice. We should stay on her porch because my porch, is dusty and windy and the rain is blowing sideways.
I thought I would show you a picture of the tumbleweeds I will have to clean up after this storm is past.
1. Stephanie asks,
"What kind of competitions do you prefer to watch? Dancing, singing, or cooking?
I don't watch TV until things come out on video or streaming. We never got a converter box for our TV and we didn't have cable put in this house. Weird I know. We didn't have a TV the first 20 years we were married and we just never really got back into the groove with it.
2. My Kid's Mom asks, "Do you work? Are you retired? Are you a stay at home mom?
I guess I am a stay at home mom but I have never felt that way. This is my 23rd year of homeschooling so I felt like I have always had a full time job. My job here lasts longer than if I left the house, most days my work starts before my husband leaves for his job and continues long after he is home. I love it though and I am so thankful that God gave me a job that I love.
3. Empty Nester asks, "What's your favorite thing about winter?
Winter :) I will never disparage winter again. Having a year with no winter has made me appreciate everything about it. Our temps are going to be in the 70s into next week, that is with a storm. This is February. I love fires in the fireplace the best in a normal year.
4. Homeschool on the Croft asks, "What do you love most about where you live?"
The freedom I have. My kids can make noise, shoot guns, shoot bow and arrows, make bombs, launch missals, Fly kites, Have a rock band, Build things, climb trees and run and dig holes if they want too. They can use slingshots and hit baseballs as far as they want.
Living in town with neighbors you can't do that. After we moved out here, my neighbor who lived next door told me how happy he was that the swing set was gone, and how the noise drove him crazy. I didn't even notice it made noise. I like it that kids can be kids out here. Oh and all the bombs, missals, guns and bow and arrows, was because Mom likes them so much. :)
5. Did you or your children(grandchildren too) ever have a dollhouse?
My daughter has a lovly doll house that her and her Dad made together. It is a big Victorian doll house. I bring it out for the grands to play with and they love it and would spend all of the time they are here if I let them.
6. Wendell asks, "If horses have blankets, why don't they get a pillow too?"
Well Wendell, my horses never would lay down when they slept, so I guess that is why, I am sure Patrice spoils you rotten.
Thanks for stopping by for a Chat this week. If you get a chance stop by and visit with Patrice.
