Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
It's a cloudy morning in my neck of the woods. Good thing Patrice's porch is covered! Pull up a chair, your favorite coffee, and let's have a chat on the porch at Everyday Ruralty.
1. Please tell me a fond autumn memory. Or tell me something interesting you're doing now that fall is here.
My fond autumn memories are all centered around Thanksgiving. I used to have my husband's family over for Thanksgiving, and it would take me a couple of weeks to get the house and meal ready. Last Thanksgiving I went to Orlando and spent Thanksgiving there with my children and no one else. My daughter and I cooked the meal, we enjoyed eating and watching movies, and my youngest son dressed up in his older brother's costumes, which made us roar with laughter. That's the happiest and best Thanksgiving on record.
2. What's your favorite kind of cheese?
Ah, cheese. I like cheese. Swiss cheese, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, cream cheese...unfortunately, cheese doesn't like me. I'm lactose intolerant. The pain isn't worth the pleasure :(
3. Have you ever been in a wedding, other than your own (if applicable)?
Yes, years ago I was a bridesmaid in a wedding. I was 16 years old. Then I was maid of honor at my younger sister's wedding in 2002. Her 10th anniversary is coming up :)
4. Did you ever do anything as a child to earn money? (Lemon aid stand, crafts, mother's helper, chores, etc.)
My uncle was the super for our building, and he'd buy used stoves and refrigerators to replace broken ones in the apartments. He'd pay me $5 each to scrub them clean.
5. Do you wear a watch?
Only when I get dressed up, like for church. I don't wear much jewelry on a regular basis. As a matter of fact, I own 3 watches but 2 of them need new batteries and I haven't bothered to replace them.
