80+ degrees - time for a front porch visit!

It's been a long time since I have joined in with a farmhouse front porch chat with Patrice at Everyday Ruralty.     Thought it sounded like a fun thing to do - please join in if you'd like - copy the questions into a blog post and link up with Patrice!  The questions she asks today are:

1.  What has kept you busy lately?  Most days I would say my job . . . but with the sun staying up later in the evenings and the weather warming up . . . I have been busy working on the yard, patio,  and some new lighting for the front of the house.

2.  Are you making or creating anything?   I have been making miniature prayer quilts - or at least I was and then the last 3 weekends we have had obligations out of town and so there hasn't been much time to create!

3.  What are you really hungry for right now?  At this moment . . . I would love if some one would bring me a diet coke on ice!    I haven't had one today . . . it's warm in the house  . . . and I won't allow myself to think of any food that I am hungry for . . . avoiding that subject  . . . Diet coke will do!

4.  What song has stuck in your head lately?   "Beneath Your Beautiful" sung by Matthew Schuler on The Voice last season - - - such a beautiful song.

5.  If I could celebrate my upcoming birthday with you, what would we do?  My birthday is in February and I would choose to meet family at The Olive Garden or Applebee's or The Blind Tiger for a nice meal and a movie!    Second choice . . . a quiet day at home with coffee and a good book and a nap under a warm blanket!  Of course both kids and the grandkids would call to say Happy Birthday!

Thanks Patrice - it's been too long since I joined in for your random fun!   Easy to learn about someone by just asking!!


  1. You are so easy to please! :) Your birthday celebration is very doable, so we'll make sure you get that next February.

    I haven't been able to get excited about the outdoor stuff. I'm still in winter mode - stay inside and sew. But I did take my knitting outside last night to enjoy the beautiful evening. Looking forward to a visit to your patio this summer.

  2. Glad you came by for a visit! It has been warm like summer lately, but tomorrow is supposed to be very cold. They say variety is the spice of life. It seems to be our weather too!


Thanks for leaving a comment! I appreciate hearing from all of you! It is an honor!
