Time to Chat #148

Everyday Ruralty 

Hello from our farm. What a lovely day! Today, we are having a day that makes me think of spring. This morning was cool and lovely. I think it was the reward for a stormy night. We did manage to get some rain last night. Too late for about a third of our corn crop. Between drought, and run away sheep who like to dine in our market garden, it has been challenging lately. To say the least. New fences are going up, but he sheep will probably sprout wings and learn to fly. It's that magnetic attraction to the garden.

Here are our questions for this week:

  1. D3 is facing wisdom teeth removal. Have you ad your wisdom teeth removed? 
  2. Today Wendell is serving iced tea, iced coffee, and carrot juice. He wants me to ask you which you'd prefer.
  3. If you use a crock pot, do you have a favorite recipe? If not, what is your favorite, easy "go to" recipe?
  4. Do you prefer to wash dishes by hand or dishwasher? Yes, I know some of us probably don't like dish washing. Wendell flat out refuses!
  5. What are you looking forward to?
My answers:
  1. Nope. I still have them ,but I am no wiser for it. :P
  2. I know he would probably only give a thimble full of carrot juice, so I'll take the iced tea. A friend posted on FB that she stopped for a frozen hot chocolate this morning. That sounds promising!
  3. I have a beef and wild rice dish that is so easy in the crock pot. I also like to use it for chili, and soups in cooler weather. The crock pot is much better than heating up the house with the oven.
  4. Dishwasher!
  5. I am looking forward to fall. When we get past July 4th, I figure that the summer is at least halfway over. I love fall so much. I am not a summer person, but I am taking advantage of all the fruits and vegetables by canning, freezing, and dehydrating. I just made some peach/cherry jam this morning. The sweet/tart thing going on with that flavor is amazing! It's also pretty with the small pieces of orange colored peach in the reddish jam.
Have a lovely week!
Send carrots!


  1. I had my wisdom teeth removed and wasn't pleasant. My daughter is having x-rays at the next orthodontic visit to see where hers are. Dishwashers forever!! I load that puppy up everyday :)

  2. I still have my wisdom teeth! Thanks for another chat! I'm linking up on Friday.

  3. Never had wisdon teeth, so guess I will never be wiser, thanks for the fun!!

  4. I am having some cooler weather but I am sure we have some more heat coming along.

  5. It was 58 here this morning..... and today has been so pleasant.....a reminder of fall days ahead. HOPE the rest of your week is awesome!

  6. Lately it's been cooling off at night, which makes the hot days much easier to take. I had my wisdom teeth removed many years ago - under general anesthesia. I don't think I could have handled it otherwise. I hope it goes easily for D3 with a quick recovery!

  7. I hope that everything will go well for your daughter. Sometimes I think that the hardest part about going to the dentist is the waiting to go. All sorts of thoughts go through our heads while we're dreading it. The surgery itself wasn't so bad because I was knocked out. General anesthesia is some good stuff! Afterwards was uncomfortable for awhile, but thankfully it passes relatively quickly.

    Have a great weekend!
