Chats on the Farmhouse Porch 128

Everyday Ruralty
Hello! Welcome to the porch. We might want to visit in the kitchen, since it is still quite cold. My daughter said it was snowing a few minutes ago. I'll put on the tea kettle.
  1. What is your favorite kind of bread? (wheat, white, rye, sourdough, a gluten free type, etc.)
  2. Would you go to an opera if someone you know was in it?
  3. What is your favorite kind of citrus fruit?
  4. Are you doing any home renovations or decorating projects?
  5. If you could sit in a rocking chair and view a beautiful scene, where would you be and what would you be looking at?
My answers: 
  1. I used to love freshly baked bread, before we went gluten free. Butter and honey on a slice right our of the oven-YES! Now I enjoy our gluten free flat breads and rolls. I found a loaf recipe that slices and it's useful for sandwiches, but it just isn't the same. Feeling better is still more important to me.
  2. Yes. My daughter is training to be an opera singer. There was a day I would not have wanted to go, but I have started appreciating more things as I've gotten older.
  3. My favorite is oranges.
  4. Hubby is tiling the living room ceiling and putting in a new floor. I'm making window quilts for our drafty upstairs rooms.
  5. I would be sitting n a rocking chair on the front porch of a nice log home, looking out over mountains. A nice sunrise or sunset wouldn't hurt either. Wendell says he would like to have a really big rocking chair and look out over a few hundred acres of carrots.
Wendell and I hope you have a great week!


  1. Hey, Lady....I'm finally getting to join in this week!!! It's been awhile for me! HOPE you're doing well....have an awesome rest of the week!!!

  2. Very nice questions this week. It sounds like you have been really, really busy. Good for you!

  3. Loved your questions. {giving Wendell some carrots and a apple because it is too cold.}

  4. It is too cold to sit out on the porch today, here in MO. These were good questions.....a lot of diversity.

  5. Patrice, it's good news you're well enough for Chats; hope the rest of the family is better as well.

  6. I enjoyed the back porch scene at Mt. Vernon, while relaxing in one of their rocking chairs. A wonderful view.

  7. My view involved mountains, too. Mt. Pisgah, to be exact. Although I chose Biltmore House, I think a log cabin porch would make for a fun evening, too. :)

    How is your daughter enjoying the opera training? Is she training for a specific one at this point? There is one opera that I am interested in, but I know that I would leave it in tears. That one is Madame Butterfly.

    Have a great week!

  8. Well, I guess if it was my daughter! I would go. How could I not!? :) I also like where you are sitting in your rocking chair!

  9. Oh I loved the three tenors,and Luciano Pavarotti :-)
