Chats on the Farmhouse Porch

    While I’m off retreating, I thought I would share a little chat I’ve had on the farmhouse porch. You can link up with Everyday Ruralty to join in on the chatting fun! Just click here!


1. Where would you take the blogger group for a chat, if they came to your house?

The porch of course.  After we paid a visit to Popcorn and the others. Wouldn’t want them to feel neglected.

2. How do you handle "toxic people"? They're the ones that are very difficult to be around and generally don't bring out the best in us.

Don’t even get me started…   I tend to ignore them. Cross the street to keep from running into them. Whatever it takes to avoid them at all costs. I don’t like negative people or thinking. It ruins my natural buzz.

3. In high school, were you the athlete, the cheerleader (actual or just your personality), the geek, the social butterfly, or lost?

“This one time at band camp”…       Yep, I was a band geek. Played the flute and oboe. Quit when they forced us to participate in marching band. Have you ever shoved a reed up your nose? Not fun. Not fun at all.

4. What's your favorite thing made from apples?

There is this little Amish farmer’s market down the road a ways that sells apple dumplings in the fall. They are FABULOUS. I’ve asked the old guy there to adopt me. He never responds. Just takes a step backward and looks at me as if I’ve lost my mind. I don’t think he understands my enthusiasm.

5. Do you do most of your shopping in stores or online?

100% ONLINE, I’d rather stick a fork in my eye than go to the mall. Seriously. Like, twice. Once in each eye.

    Love apple dumplings! Do not love toxic people! LOL

    I dropped band in high school but I loved playing my clarinet!

    Welcome to the porch! We have some things in common. Aside from a love of apple dumplings and a dislike for toxic people, we are both city girls turned country and we both have 100 year old farmhouses that are being fixed up.

    You have such great answers and your personality comes through there. I laughed out loud and interrupted my daughter's English school work. I,too, would take the fork over the mall!!Please come back next week. You'll make such a wonderful addition to the neat group who come to my porch.
    Have a great week!

    p.s. Following your blog now!

    Oops! I just read that you were born a country girl. I guess I misread that one the first time. After 20 years, I might as well have been born to this.

    Real apple sauce, the kind made with peels, later removed, so it comes out pink.

    I used to live near a mall with a nice bookstore, a nice gardening store, and a See's candy shop. Alas, no more.

    How anyone shops in a department store nowadays is beyond me. I tried again a few months ago at Kohls, and the only clerks were about a football field away.

    #5. Liar. You said you would be shopping at the RETREAT. (wink)

    Apple dumplings sound great! I've never had one so I'll imagine them.
    Can you get all your shopping done online? That's, too?

    would love to hear where you shop online. i've been trying to find more options online as to where to shop. (:

    I love these chats! So cool about the band stuff...I was a string player when no one played strings! Uber-geek! I want an apple dumpling....sigh.

    Have you tried Vivi's recipe for apple dumplings yet?

    I haven't had time yet Karen, but looking forward to it!
