Chats on the Farmhouse Porch

on January 22, 2013



For Wendell!!

Do you eat eggs? What is your favorite way to serve them?

I do eat eggs. My favorite way to serve them is scrambled. My second favorite way is probably soft boiled. I like them anyway except when the yolk is really runny. I do not like that at all it has to be soft cooked for me.

Do you have a favorite item that you really like having around? (a pillow, a chair, a sweater, a teddy bear, etc.)

I am not attached to many items. The only item I am really conscientious about having with me  is  a wedding ring. That is about it.

Is most of the furniture in your home dark wood, light wood, painted, lacquered, or distressed?

I have 2 rooms with dark wood (cherry in the living room and black walnut in the dining room) and 3 rooms with medium oak (family room, kitchen, and master bedroom).

Please fill in the rest of this sentence. “I could write a book about____________.”

“I could write a book about why marrying my husband when I was 19 was the best decision I ever made.”

If money and calendar/family obligations weren’t an issue, would you prefer to spend next weekend at a Bed and Breakfast, a posh hotel, a cabin in the woods, or on a sailboat on a calm body of water? I guess the last thing, the sailboat, would have to be someplace warm. 🙂 (It’s 30+ degrees here.)

A posh hotel. I would prefer it to be in a foreign locale such as London or Rome. 🙂

Thanks Patrice for coming up with these questions. That was a lot of fun!!

P.S. It is cold here too. I just checked and right now the official temp is 1°. Think spring… 😉

    oh I thought it was cold here. I am glad we are at least 14 degrees. I never thought but I do carry my camera everywhere I go so that is probably mine item.

      Hi Madonna, I checked and the high finally made it to 12 today. A real warm up, LOL. I can’t wait until this cold snap passes. Thanks for stopping over to visit my blog!

    I agree with you- no runny eggs! I think London would be lovely today. Anywhere, please! It was 15 degrees when we woke up.

      Yes, getting away would be so nice this time of year. That is one thing I hope to be able to do sometime whenever we actually get to retire is take a trip in the winter. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment!

  4. No runny eggs for me either. Love the idea of London or Rome and a posh hotel would be heavenly.

    I agree about the runny yolk, yuck! But to each their own. I dream of travelling aboard someday!

  6. The temps in my area have been in the negatives. I can’t wait for spring!
