- What's your favorite day of the week? Why?
- Do you have a blog? Please tell us the name of it and how long you've had it.
- What's the last book you read? If you're not a reader, please tell us about the last movie you saw.
- Do you ever doodle with a pen or pencil while something else is going on?
- Tell me about your bathroom towels. What color are they? Do they all match?
- For whatever reason, I like Thursday. It's much more relaxed than the beginning of the week, and seldom as busy as the weekend.
- Yes. This is it,Baby! Two years for Everyday Ruralty:)
- I just read A Year at Ladybug Farm and At Home on Ladybug Farm. I read them each in less than two days. I could barely put them down. Book three just came in from the library. To heck with laundry! I'm hooked. The author, Donna Ball, writes about three friends( women in their fifties) who go together to buy a 100 year old farm and farmhouse. It is a delightful story with rich characters. She writes much the same as the wonderful Jan Karon. When I finish the third in her series, I hope I can steal time to read another one of her books. It awaits on the coffee table!
- I used to doodle non-stop in school. It drove the teachers crazy, but they all (or at least most) admitted that it was very artistic and entertaining. Now stop that, Patrice. Pay attention! I only find myself doodling now if I'm incredibly bored- like when I'm on hold during a phone call.
- My bathroom towels are horrible. We have a huge modgepodge of different towels, mostly white, blue and green solids. A friend moved and her three sets, which were almost new, made their way to my linen closet. There were already a mess of different towels there.. Two years ago I splurged and bought eight large, fluffy, white towels. They have had so much use in just that time, but they still look better than all the others. I remember hearing that a local church group had a big "shower" for a local mom who had her 8th baby. They said no baby things as gifts, since she had so many things to use from her last child. Instead, they bought her all new towels, sheets. cookware, and a good quality pair of running shoes (we shall not speculate whether she was to run after her children, from her children, or from her hubby during rut season). Nonetheless, I think the idea was so generous and very considerate. I hear she was thrilled with all the new things that the family could not afford. I think we could all use one of those showers.:)
Have a great rest of the week!
