105 Chats

Everyday Ruralty
  1. Have you ever baked bread from scratch?
  2. If we decided to have lunch on the porch, and you so kindly volunteered to fix it (thank you). What would you serve?
  3. Show us, or tell us about your key chain ( the thing you have on your car or house keys).
  4. Have you ever tried a challenging or dangerous sport? No. I don't mean rush hour traffic, but I understand the confusion. :)
  5. Have you ever written poetry? If not, have you ever had anyone write a poem for you? If you aren't happy with this question, we'll even accept a "Roses are red..." poem.
My answers:
  1. Many times. I've even taught bread baking and advanced bread baking. Then I found out that most of my family is gluten intolerant and I had to learn all new skills.
  2. Mango Chicken Salad on a bed of mixed greens, sliced garden tomatoes, and cookies. And carrots, dear Patrice!
  3. My key chain says it all-

     4. The closest thing to something challenging I have done is Spinakker Flying. A spinakker is the puffy sail you see when a sailboat is in full sail. Folks figured out that you could tie a line from one end of the bottom of that sail to the other end and have a "swing seat". It's very much like sitting on a swing, until a strong wind takes you up, up, up! You can go about as high as the sailboat mast is tall. I was on a 40' boat. Just me, in a bathing suit, sitting on a rope at a height. ??? Youth!!! I also got on a horse that wasn't trained. I don't recommend it.Rodeo!
       5. Yes, but I'm not sure anyone wants to read it. I want to be a poo-it, Patrice. That's poet, Wendell. What are you going to write about? Carrots? Little do you know. I have some wonderful poems. I will share them with you one day, but now I have to go get a blade of grass that just popped up in my pasture!My horse thinks he's a poet. What next?

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!



  1. Your sailing challenge sounds challenging to me. I have never been sailing.

  2. Love your keychain, haha!

  3. Spinnaker Flying...nope, don't think I could ever do that. lol

  4. I've been thrown from a horse a time or two. It is not fun.

  5. I've never been thrown, but I was on a "run away" pony once when I was four. The story my father told made it sound terrifying. I do remember being scared, but not THAT scared. Recently, I saw the son of the couple whose pony I rode. It seems the pony in question was 18 and arthritic when I rode him. He wasn't actually running away either. He saw the feed truck and was heading that way. Guess Daddy wasn't a country boy and panicked!

  6. I would love to read your poetry, Patrice!

  7. Oh, spinnaker flying sounds thrilling! I wouldn't try it now, but maybe 25 years ago...

  8. Mom's Taxi, that's funny. I love it.

  9. No spinnaker flying for me! Love the sound of your lunch....will be right over....

  10. Loved reading your chat!! I think my Mom needs one of those keychains, too, haha. And Spinakker Flying sounds like so much fun... I don't think I've heard of it before, but it sounds like it would be neat!

    And I bet Wendell is a wonderful poo-it :)

    Yesterday got away from me, but I hope to have a chance to join the chat next week!


  11. Fun questions!! I read your answer for lunch after I decided on chicken salad. I love the recipe I posted. I add onions and almonds or whatever nuts I have on hand.

  12. late to the party...ahhhh...while churning butter yesterday, I was telling some folks the most loaves of bread I've ever made in one week was 15 or 18 and gave all but 1 loaf away. good memories.
