Chatting on the Deck

“Chats on the Farmhouse Porch” is a group of friends
gathering to visit,
sip their favorite beverages,
nibble delicious treats
and share their likes and dislikes.

Patrice and Wendell have invited me to join the chatting.
Patrice provides the questions,
we answer.

Today’s questions:

1. How many load of laundry do you do each week (about)?

Now that we are retired and just the two of us, I do 2-3 loads a week, quite different when all five kiddies were at home.new 088I still love sheets drying on the line.

2. Where do your household pets sleep? If you have no pets, please skip to the next question.

I have two cats. They sleep where ever they want, except on our bed at night – the Farmer doesn’t like sleeping with cats.jan 13 cozy hair ball

3. What is your favorite thing to listen to while you drive?

I love listening to audio books, on cassette tape, on CD or on my ipod. On long trips the time goes faster and in town I don’t mind waiting in traffic .

4. Do you have to do a big clean-up when you have company, or are you always ready for guests?

When the kids were home and saw me frantically cleaning, they would ask “Is someone coming over?” Sometimes the answer was “yes”, some times, “no, things just need cleaning”, sometimes I was working off my upset. Now – there isn’t much to keep clean, but I still end up needing push to for company.

5. What’s your favorite breakfast food?

I am searching for the perfect chicken fried steak and eggs. The one restaurant that cooked the way I liked went out of business (it wasn’t my fault).

Hope everyone’s enjoys their spring time on the porch this week.

Join all of us here.

  1. “It wasn’t my fault” -funny.:) Sheets are just nicer dried on the clothesline. Audio books are great for trips. Have a great week.

    • Listening to a book gets double use of my time

  2. I clean when I’m upset too. It helps me to clear my head before I say something I regret. When my dad passed my house was so clean & organized my family didn’t recognize it. I may have to post my Ma-In-Laws chicken fried steak recipe. It’s been in her family for generations & she is one GOOOOOD southern cook! Have a blessed week :O)

    • Yep, the kids learned to stay out of the way when mom got busy
