Chat 152

Hello, friends! I'm not the world's best blogger. I share a laptop with two other family members, since mine went up in smoke. A new computer isn't in the budget. I wanted to put my Wednesday chat post up, but SOMEBODY was editing photos for a potential client (I have an aspiring photographer). She edited like crazy. When she went to access them, they were GONE. Nobody else touched the computer and they disappeared. Maybe some of you have had things like that happen. There are lots of things just floating in cyber-space!

I wanted to post yesterday's photo of some of our pigs to show you how nice the front porch is for our chats. There is a very good reason why we don't have our chats further out on the farm. I had just filled their tub with water and overflowed it so they could have a nice mud puddle. You can see a watermark on the third pig from the left. Well, it's actually a mud-line. She had been lounging in the mud when I went out to fill the water for them. It seems that every time I fill the water, someone has to lay in it!Wendell thinks they are messy and is glad we don't have the chat near them.

Dotty is expecting! I couldn't resist the hat. Dotty is happy to be a fashion statement.

Today's chat:
  1. Are you still enjoying (or not) summer, or are you geared for fall?
  2. What's the one room in your home that you'd like to make a big change to?
  3. Do you ever send "snail mail"?
  4. Do you dream? Often? Do you have nightmares?
  5. Tell me something that makes you happy. Please. 
My answers: (Wendell's too)
  1. I am so ready for fall. I will finish canning and dehydrating as long as I can get our fresh produce, but I am ready for my favorite season. I do not like to fall!
  2. I would like to finish remodeling our family room. I'm even more anxious to remodel our enclosed back porch to make a TV room. That way folks can enjoy a show without bothering others. My stall needs a lot of work. I would like my own kitchen, complete with a full refrigerator. :)
  3. I like to write letters and send cards. I miss those days. A letter in my mailbox makes me smile. Wendell doesn't like snails in the mail!
  4. I dream often. I had a wonderful dream where I learned a new art technique and made amazing pictures the other night. I woke up SO happy! I dream fairly often. I do have an occasional nightmare, but fortunately, not often. No dreams for me, except about carrots.  No night mares.I am a night gelding.
  5. There have been a bunch of large, wild rabbits in my yard lately. They are way too big for the cats to mess with. I have enjoyed watching them frolic around the yard. Sometimes the simple things are pretty good. I love my friends, and even the bratty pony.

Farmhouse Porch Chat 151

Everyday Ruralty 
Good Morning!
I picked some flowers for you! I love daisies. I'd take them over roses any day. Hubby says that makes me a cheap date. :)

I want to shout out a quick "thank you" to anyone who viewed my scholarship video and "liked" it.

Our Questions for this week:

  1. What's the earliest time in your life you can remember? Can you remember being 2 years old, 5 years old, etc?
  2. What's do you like to put on pasta? (Your favorite topping.)
  3. Is there something that takes time away from more important things in your life? (TV, internet, talking on the telephone, etc.)
  4. Do you buy many clothes that are "high maintenance"? (Clothes that need to be ironed, dry cleaned, or hand washed)
  5. Please finish this sentence. "I'd like to visit the beach today and-------------------------."
 My answers (Wendell is not with us today. He is looking for that one blade of green grass in our brown pastures- drought!)
  1. I remember a bit about being pre-school age, but the memories are really foggy. I grew up near a family who had a son that, at age three, described the birth process (from a baby's point of view) to his mom. He had never been exposed to anything that would have given him any of that information. Interesting, huh?
  2. I love a good cheesy, white sauce on pasta. Sometimes I'm just happy with salty butter and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
  3. The internet- a curse and a good tool, at the same time. Blah!
  4. I try to buy easy to care for things, but sometimes I get something home and see that dry clean tag. Some of them can be washed gently, but I have made some midget clothes that way. Oops!
  5. Read, read, read. Then I'd like to take a break and eat a big roast beef sandwich, chips, and have a big iced peach tea. After a nap, it would be time to go swimming. Then Wendell and I would race up and down the beach. Having this time  off would be fantasy enough, but riding Mr. "Sorry, I don't work that hard" would really be stretching it. lol

Please help me win!

I want to take a course on Nutritional Psychology Coaching. I cannot afford the cost of the course. There is a scholarship competition that could help this become a reality. I'm asking you to please watch this video and like it. I only heard about the competition a few days ago, so others have lots of "likes". I have a lot of catching up to do. HELP! I would really appreciate anyone posting on their blog and asking others to watch the video and like it for me. Thank you, friends. Wendell thanks you too!

Please let me know you have done this in comments, and I will come to your blog and personally thank you. I'd send Wendell, but you'd never understand the words "thank you" when he has a mouth full of carrots. :P
