Chat on the Farmhouse Porch 153

Everyday Ruralty 

Hello, Friends!
Hello from Wendell,too!

I hope you are all having a good week. I know things are busier for many of you with "back to school". I'm working like a crazy lady to get all of my canning, freezing, and dehydrating done. The garden is slowing down, but there are some fall things coming. I see some Butternut squash that looks good.

Did you ever just feel change coming? I feel like this fall will be a season of change for me. I'm milling some ideas around in my head- dreams-hopes-ideas. I'm in a bit of a rut. You understand that. Don't you? It will be a welcome season for some positive changes. I know I'm talking kind of "out there", but I'm still deciding. I'll share when I know.

Remember that I posted a video to get a scholarship? I did not get it. I thank everyone who tried to help me out. After reflecting on the whole idea, I feel that this door was being shut for me. Maybe it was not a correct fit. It might be a great organization, but I have trouble thinking that a scholarship is awarded based on "likes" from a video. Truthfully, I did not view the other videos from people who wanted to get a scholarship. It just wasn't supposed to happen, and I'm okay with that.

  1. What are you most looking forward in the remaining months of 2014?
  2. Tell us about the last movie you saw, or book you read.
  3. Do you ever make smoothies or juice?
  4. Who do you wish you could talk to right now?
  5. Please finish this sentence. "If I could spend a week in a lovely cabin in the mountains I would like to_______________________."
My answers (Wendell will not be participating. He and the pony are planning something to get into trouble.)
  1. Cooler temp and colorful leaves. I also want to take a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway to photograph the fall colors.
  2. I saw Frozen and Mirror, Mirror last week. I enjoyed both!
  3. Yes. I like both and the girls and I make them often.
  4. My mom. I miss her. I would like to discuss some of my goals and ideas and get her feedback. I still feel like she will be watching.
  5. ___dive straight into a writing project that has been dancing in my head for a few months. A few uninterrupted days of typing would be glorious. I would also like to take walks with my camera.


    1. Fall always means travel to me. I too wish I could talk to my mom again.

    2. Loved reading your chat! Could not agree more with your thoughts for number 5. That sounds heavenly.
      And I know what you mean about Fall- every time it rolls around it feels like it brings a new potential for change and blessings to come. I don't know if it's the crisp, cool weather that makes us feel like that, like new things are coming, but it is a great feeling. I hope the positive changes you hope for come into your life :)

      Have a wonderful day,

    3. Thanks!! I'll be posting my answers tomorrow.

    4. What a beautiful drive that will be on the Parkway! I wish that I could be there, too. The colors in the fall there are amazing. We don't get that color change here. :-/

      Have a great week!
