Chats on the Farmhouse Porch #1
Today I am going to write a "Chat on the Farmhouse Porch", something started by Patrice at her delightful blog, Everyday Ruralty. The chat is just writing your thoughts or answers to a few interesting questions and then linking and reading others' and I am looking forward to pulling up a nice chair on the farmhouse porch and joining in by writing my first one.
I have noticed that a couple of my blogging friends do these and they look like so much fun, so I thought I would join in!
This Tuesday's Chat:
1. Bacon or sausage? If vegetarian, what do you have for breakfast?
What a hard thing to answer! I think bacon and sausage both have their places where they are perfect with certain things, so I can't really choose. But, I would say that I love bacon most on a good cheeseburger and I like sausage most either at a barbeque or in a breakfast taco. And I just realized this question is probably meant for you to stick to talking about breakfast, but that's too hard. This question is getting my mouth waterin'.
2. Do you take time to "smell the roses"?
Yes. I think that has been some of the greatest advice to me in my life so far... to just stop and smell the roses and not let life pass you by without doing that. I'm a firm believer in focusing on the simple joys and soaking in every moment and stopping to appreciate it, and have noticed a change in my life since that became more important to me, I guess a couple of years ago in high school.
3. What's your favorite stone fruit? (Peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots, and cherries are in the stone fruit family.)
Out of those, peaches or plums would be my favorite. I love the unique taste of a plum, but peaches are so wonderful too with their amazing juicy and refreshing flavors. Especially in Summer!
4. What is the thing people notice most about your personality? (quiet, outgoing, polite, funny, etc.)
My friends and family tell me that I am pretty funny. I love cracking jokes and just making light of things and seeing the humor in life. I love to laugh more than anything.
I've also been told that I have a calm personality or disposition, so I guess that's the other half of me. I like things to be happy and calm as much as possible. I like when people tell me that because if they are in my family, they will often say that I am calm like my Grandmother was and that I am a lot like her in my personality. So I love that.
5. Is there a hobby that you have wanted to do, but haven't started yet?
There are many, but one in the front of my mind would be horseback riding. I have been riding before, but it would be amazing to go riding all the time. I would also like to learn to play another instrument. And I guess this is more of an interest than a hobby, but I've always been interested in artifacts and old, forgotten things of the past- I guess archaeology- so I would love to learn more about that.
That was my chat on the farmhouse porch for today. If you have an answer- or answers- to these, I'd love if you shared! And if you'd like to write your own chat, you can go to Everyday Ruralty.
If you read her own farmhouse porch chats there, you will probably laugh. I really enjoy reading them, especially because of that. You will see why if you read them.
~I also want to say that I am going out of town and so I won't be writing for awhile. I'm very excited, but I will also miss the joy of reading everyone else's blogs while I'm away, as well as writing. I look forward to catching up and sharing my trip with you when I'm home :)
God Bless you♥
Have a wonderful day!
