Chats on the Farmhouse Porch 8


Greetings! Welcome to the porch. I made sweet rolls for my visitors and we have iced tea, hot tea, and coffee. Have a seat and let's visit.

  1. Are you a morning person, someone who does best in the middle of the day, or a night owl?
  2. Do you take vitamins or supplements?
  3. If you were a dog, would you be a) a Poodle, b) a Retriever, c) a Sheep Dog, or a d)Chihuahua?
  4. Please tell us about what you're reading now.
  5. Okay, here I go with that magic wand! If I came to your house and could fix up one room with the wave of my wand, what would you have me renovate/redecorate/refurnish? (BTW- If I only could! That would be such fun. Then we'd sit on your porch and visit.)
My answers:
  1. I wish I was a morning person. I'd have much more time to do things I need to do. I work efficiently in the middle of the day, but I can really rock with the owls. With that said, I know that I pay the piper the next day if I'm up too late at night. I guess I could say "none of the above" to my own question! lol
  2. Yes. I keep the supplement industry in business. I can tell the difference when I don't take them, so I know they are working for me.
  3. In my younger days, I'd have said Poodle. Now I think I'm very much like a Sheep Dog just trying to keep everything together. (I felt like a retriever grocery shopping today!)
  4. I'm reading a book about Novel Writing. It has lots of charts and forms to keep a writer organized. Perhaps it just keeps a writer filling out charts and forms instead of writing a book. Huh?
  5. I'd zap my mudroom/back porch and make it 6-8 feet further out. I'd take out all the walls and windows and have everything built new. I'd keep the bathroom/laundry room, but it would be made nicer. I'd have a large closet put in with lots of shelves and storage space. The room with the closet  would be the master bedroom. Then I could take the room I'm in now and make it a dining room again. We have a great room type thing going on and I miss having a dedicated dining room.

Have a wonderful rest of the week!


  1. i used to be a morning person, but these days i'm all over the place.

    labrador retriever!

    only take chromium and fish oil.

    reading? TOO MANY BLOGS!

    renovate one room. hmmm. i think i'd have you wallpaper our 2nd bath/laundry room. it has cat wallpaper in it and we've never redone it since buying this place.

  2. Texwis- I definitely think you need dog wallpaper this time. I think your pack would agree!

  3. Patrice, I get up early but never feel rested because I go to bed late. I take my Vitamins and supplements most every day.
    I would be a Golden Retriever. I'm reading The Bait of Satan by John Revere, a devotional book and The Complete Idiot Guide to Chakras. And please come on over ASP with your magic wand to renovate my main upstairs bathroom. Thanks for these questions. JB

  4. 1. I'm most definitely a morning person. I hope out of bed at the crack of dawn and I'm ready to go, go, go! It drives my hubby nuts. He needs a full hour to get up to speed - I have never understood how that could be!

    2. Nope. I buy them and then forget to take them!

    3. I would probably have to say I'm like a poodle. I have curly hair and tons of energy. If something is going on in my life, I probably am viewed as being 'yappy'!

    4. I'm reading "Going, Gone" by Laura Crum. It's slow going because I only read when I go to bed, and I usually only go to bed when I'm ready to sleep!

    5. Oh, please zap away the pink tile in the guest bath! We haven't renovated the upstairs of our project house, and that's the only thing up there that is really really ugly!

  5. Well, at least we'd be in the same dog show :) Great questions today.

  6. You might have a point about that book. LOL

    I never used to be a morning person but now I LOVE getting up anywhere between 4:30 and 5:30. When I take Tuck out to walk not many people are out there and the ones who are don't like to talk in the morning either! It's glorious!

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog...I will have to join you one time on chat on the porch...a fun meme

  8. Late again...sorry!! At this rate I might have to just join once a month and answer 20 questions at once!!! ;-) HOPE you have a great rest of the week and weekend!!!
