Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
It is time to chat with Patrice on Everyday Rurality. It is time for a chat on her porch. It is 42 degrees out on my porch. To cold I think to sit and chat. We would have to go in the house. I think by later in the week it will be much nicer. We got the swimming pool looking ready to swim in yesterday, That is one of the ways we can tell the ground is warming up the pool starts changing temps. Now I need to get the porches ready to be livable.
So lets get to this weeks questions.
1. What's you favorite kind of salad?
Oh any kind of salad, I could eat salad even for breakfast. My favorite when I got out to dinner though is a Chicken Ceaser salad.
2. How old were you when you learned to cook?
I was 11
3. What's your favorite kind of store? (grocery, garden, department, cooking, bookstore, etc)
If it has store in the title I am good to go. It used to be bookstores. Then I found the library and how good it works just to use the inter-library loan system I love garden stores and I love feed stores and just about anything since I spent so many years of my life in a grocery store I still really enjoy grocery stores too. I do try and stay away though. :)
4. If you could have lived during another time in history, what time would that have been?
I like these times that I live now. Just because God chose this time for me and moved lots of people to get me where I am in this place. It always takes my breath away to think of all of the pieces it took to get me here. I only think of living in the 30s and the 40s for the awesome clothes they wore and hats and gloves and the shoes and coats. But that is all, I love technology, I love computers and texting. All of it I am glad I have and it would make me sad to go back to a time without microwaves and heating and air conditioning.
5. I'm looking forward to_____________. Megan's baby, my newest grand baby. Spring, It being daylight longer, putting in a new garden, getting my flower beds cleaned and ready to plant more flowers. The grass turning green. New baby chicks. My daughter's 21st birthday. Our Grandson's turning 5 and the next bunch turning 3 and the current baby turning one. Our 32nd wedding anniversary. Lots and lots of good things happening.
This quote from C.S. Lewis says it best. " There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind."
It is all good and I am very thankful to be alive on this morning.
Thanks to Patrice and for being so faithful in doing these chats each week.
