Chats on the Farmhouse Porch

It's time to sit with Patrice and Wendell as we enjoy some porch chats.  I get my weekly fix at Everyday Ruralty.

1. Is there a room in your home that you'd like to redecorate or remodel?
There is always a room I'd like to redecorate since I love decorating.  If I had to choose one, it would probably be the dining room.  Our dining room furniture is almost 13 years old and is starting to look its age.

2. Did you watch the Oscars?
I did, but only because my eyes were tired and burning from so much reading and there was nothing else on television.  I wasn't familiar with any of the movies, didn't know half the actors, and the only time I got excited was when the movie Brave won for Best Animated Film.  Quite the waste of time.

3. How many pair of blue jeans do you own?
Two pairs of long jeans and one pair of capris.  I only wear the jeans when I'm doing yard work to keep from getting a hundred mosquito bites, and the capris are kind of tight so I don't wear them too often either.  I'm usually in a skirt or dress.

4. What was your favorite toy as a child?
Wow, tough one.  I loved my toys so much.  I do remember having a rubber poodle for many years.  It got ruined during a fire in our building when it got soaked with the water used to put out the fire and the stench of smoke wouldn't go away.  I was pretty brokenhearted about that.

5. If you could visit a country in Europe, which would you choose?
I would like to visit Spain so I can see the country my ancestors came from.

Oh, that was sad about the fire. Spain would be lovely to visit.

My ancestors came from Spain too. I would like to see it. I had a few poodle toys. My parents raised poodles, so it was a natural choice when people bought me gifts. Have a great week!

I didn't bother watching either because the movies sounded so alien I had no idea who starred in them or what they're about.
