Chats on the Farmhouse Porch 32


Welcome to my porch for our weekly chat. Here are the questions for this week.
Questions:
  1. What did you have for breakfast this morning?
  2. What's your favorite kind of juice?
  3. Have you tried Pinterest yet?
  4. I can't wait for __________ from my garden (or farmers' market/CSA/neighbor with green thumb).
  5. The worst job I ever had was __________________.
My answers:
  1. Fried eggs and a concoction that I juiced.
  2. Apple juice
  3. I have visited to see some of the things from this blog that have been pinned, but I have avoided the temptation. It would be so easy to get addicted to something like that.
  4. Lettuce
  5. The worst jobs I've ever had were in retail. Many years ago, I worked at a small fabric shop. It was popular with quilters, so I cut lots of little lengths of fabric. Lots! I used to get a bit upset when moms would drop their kids off at the thread display and tell them to play there while the mom shopped. Do you know what a four year old can do to a thread display? All that for minimum wage. :(
Have an outstanding week!

Thank you to McGuffy Ann for this award. Wendell is sure it's his. He wanted me to thank the "Academy" for his award and tell all of his loyal fans to send oats, carrots, or a Superman cape in his size. Just repeating what he said!!! ;)

  1. I too worked at at a fabric store. It would take hours to undo the damage that one kid did in 5 minutes. The upside, I got a big discount on any fabric that I bought, and for a fabriholic that is heaven.

  2. I have enough trouble keeping my own stash of thread organized! Ugh... I can't imagine setting it back to rights after kids have played with them!

  3. Just linked up for a little chat. Thanks for hosting, Patrice! I worked at a fabric store for about a week in college.....so, I can relate. But, that wasn't the worst job I ever had....not by a long shot. What a great question!

  7. I wound up having eggs and grits for breakfast. I don't think I could ever work in retail. It's really demanding - schedule and customers. Not to mention, the pay isn't all that good. I'm glad there are people who like doing this, though. We all can't do the same thing. Congrats on the blog award and thanks for hosting!

  8. I can imagine what a four year old can do to a thread counter. I can also imagine me not being very happy about it. LOL That award is so perfect for you! Congrats!

  9. I enjoy reading these "chats" that you have...maybe one day I'll join in. I can only imagine the chaos that a four year old could do to a thread display! Their parents should have to come back and clean it up!!!
