Monday Morning


Patrice is having a blog party over at her place, everyone is invited.
She is at Everyday Ruralty.

1. Who would you bring with you? (You don't have to use your real names if you wish.)
I think I would bring my whole family. So I do hope you have lots of room.

2. What will you wear to the party?
(Remember, it's 60's in the daytime and 40's at night.)
Since it is cooler I would wear jeans and a long sleeved shirt and my tennis shoes since that
is what I pretty much live in all of the time.
3. What would you most like to see on my farm?
I would like to see all of the food your grow, and I would like to see your books shelves. :)

4. What dish would you bring since it's pot luck?(Optional: You can post a recipe or photos of a dish if you'd like.) Since my favorite recipe in the whole world is Apple Brown Betty I would bring that.

5. What game or activity would you like to do during our get together.
Neigh- You could play give the horses carrots!

I would really Like to bob for apples and wear vampire teeth and
chew bubblegum and blow the biggest bubbles. :)

I hope your Monday is lovely.

Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, for His wonderful works to the children of men!

  1. Thanks for posting. Great answers! I'll have some vanilla ice cream for that Apple Brown Betty.

  2. That looks/sounds delicious! You and Patrice are in cahoots to add digital pounds to our web browsers! :)

  3. I've been thinking of doing this, myself. After I make some of that brown betty, except using some of the millions of pounds of frozen peaches I have on hand. :-)

  4. Hello! I am here to thank you for the award that you so sweetly gave me a couple of weeks ago. I am so sorry that I was so late to respond. I think that, I pray that, my life is going to be back to normal now. We can only hope...
    So, Thank you. Thank you, Thank you!!! I am so flattered!
    Have a fun-filled week!
    Love, Joyce

  5. P.S. I LOVE the barn board backdrop for your blog. And you have SUCH a kind face on your profile photo. Even though I'm new here, I can tell you're just a wonderful soul... :)

  6. You know what...for someone who is so skinny and doesn't like food that much...you are a great cook and I would roll down the street if I cooked such wonderful dishes...
    Great post!!!

  7. Sounds like a wonderful day to me! I'm soooo looking forward to a day when a sweatshirt hoody feels snuggly. I'm going to call my sis, so off the computer. But had to catch up on last week!


Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
Think of this as coming onto my porch and having
a visit.
