Chats on the Farmhouse Porch

Patrice's porch has dried off enough for us to get together for an after the storm chat.  Please join us at Everyday Ruralty.

1.  How are you when there is a storm?
I've lived in South Florida for 26 years.  We are storm professionals.  You tell us a storm's a'coming, and we can hunker down faster than you can say Hurricane Andrew.

2.  Are you doing anything special in November?
November is a favorite month for me.  First off, Thanksgiving!!  I love Thanksgiving.  I love the preparation, the food, the games (board games, not football), the naps, and everything else that comes with this special holiday.  I love the shows on Food Network on how to roast or fry a turkey and all the yummy side dishes.  And I love love love decorating the house for Christmas the next day!  I'm looking forward to putting up our tree and fixing the house up!

3.  Do you wear glasses or contacts?
I wear glasses.  I wore contacts for years, but about 10 years ago I stopped.  I suffer from dry eyes, which makes contacts very uncomfortable.

4.  Salty snacks or sweets?
Both!  It just depends on my mood.

5.  Who would you bring to the farm with you for a chat, a tour, or perhaps a visit with Wendell?
For a chat, I'd bring my sister.  She would like relaxing with some unsweetened iced tea and casual conversation.  For a visit with Wendell it would have to be my son, and the girls from my Awana class.  Wendell would love them, they are as sweet as sugar!

Glad to hear you are safe & a super storm preparer.
I am hoping to get a jump on things this year but the day after Turkey day leaves me very lazy so I am impressed you jump in so quickly on Christmas decorating :) be safe!!

I'm so glad we don't have to worry with hunkering down when a storm rises. We get some nasty thunderstorms sometimes and occasionally we get tornado warnings, but for the most part everything is pretty mild here. I don't think I could live some place where there is a large block of time devoted to storm preparation like yourself. My hat is off to you! =D

Sorry it took so long for me to get over to your blog. The writing project has kept me busy. We are also having a farm open house tomorrow and we are far from ready!
I love Thanksgiving too. Anything family for me!I also quit wearing contacts because of dry eyes. I bet you are a pro at storm preparations. I'm usually too busy hiding my head like an ostrich! lol Have a great weekend!
