Chat 122

Everyday Ruralty
Happy 2014! Sorry I couldn't get the chat going earlier, but I had to reintroduce myself to my computer. I hope you are all well. C.S.Farmer is preparing for some icy, cold weather. I'm crocheting an afghan, but that isn't exactly the same. :) We have lots of animals that need water and lines freeze easily with the low temps we are expecting. Brr. 
Here are the questions for this week:
  1. Did you make any New Year's Resolutions?
  2. Are your decorations still up?
  3. What did Santa bring you? Okay, maybe not Santa...
  4. Do you have any special plans for 2014?
  5. Have you had any snow yet?
My answers: Mine too!
  1. No, but I have several goals for my art, writing, and ways of managing my home. I have just acknowledged these goals and thought of ways to achieve them. I see resolutions as something more severe. I have often felt like I failed, so I try not to make them. Yes. I resolve to eat more apples. I get so many carrots, that I think I need variety.
  2. Yes. As much as I'm itching to clean up, the family has requested leaving them up until Epiphany (Jan 6th). Patrice took our decoration away when we tried to eat it. Spoiled Sport!
  3. I got money for new clothes, a DSLR from my generous daughter, and a promise to help with family scrapbooks from another one of my girls. Did I mention chocolate? I'm still waiting for Santa.
  4. To finish house renovations before they finish me! To fulfill my dream of being a poet! To eat more. To tease Patrice more. To chase the pony less. To stop planning to chase the pony less, because I want to chase him more. :)
  5. We had 1/16th of an inch when we woke up this morning. We had a day, a few weeks ago, when it snowed like mad for about a half an hour. I'm sure we will get some of the white stuff. It was much more regular when I was younger, but the weather has gone binky. No. I don't like snow. I have never been able to build a snow horse. It gets my back wet when it melts. No snow for me!
The next chat will be on Tuesday. Just like they've always been. Have a good rest of the week.


  1. I always enjoy these lovely chats! Renovations are hard to live with! We are painting but in a couple years we plan to totally take the kitchen and make it something NEW! I am so excited! I was hopping it would snow more while I was home on staycation...nope not until I went back to work. Go figure. Happy New Year!

  2. Wow it sounds like you have a wonderful daughter! Happy 2014!

  3. We have a bit of snow tonight, along with some black ice issues. No decorations here and no resolutions!

  4. Always enjoy your questions and answers, Patrice! And give Wendal an extra apple from me!

  5. We went crazy with some renovations in November, then I got kinda burned out. Go figure. I still have a long list of to-do's, so likely will go on my list for 2014. Happy new year!

  6. It sounds like you had a pretty good Christmas. I hope that you have fun with that new camera. :)

    I wish that it would snow here. Even with this blast of cold air, I don't think that it is likely for us to get any.

    Have a great weekend!

  7. I'm a little late and couldn't add my link :(.
