Chats On The Farmhouse Porch

Before we begin, let me comment on my lack of a post yesterday. I actually had a post planned out, but by the time I got home from work, I had such a blistering headache that I just didn't feel like typing it all out.  So I didn't.    I didn't do anything but sit in the chair.

I didn't go fishing. I didn't even shoot my bow.

I just sat.

Then I went to bed. So that's that.

 Now for today's chat.  Oh, and as always, I read all of your blogs if they are linked on Patrice's, even if my brain is too tired to comment--as it is tonight.  I appreciate those of you who take the time to read and comment on my poor little blog, as well.

Everyday Ruralty

1.  When it comes to vegetables, which do you use more often-- canned, frozen, or fresh?

I am not a vegetable person at all.  There are very few vegetables I like, so when I do use them, I used the bags of frozen vegetables.  That way, I can just take out what I need, and put the rest back into the freezer.

2.  Do you sew?

Yes, I do sew.  Not all the time, but I do sew.  In fact, I'm wearing a pair of shorts right now that I made myself.

3.  Do you have a common fear, such as fear of heights, spiders, snakes, small spaces, flying, etc?

No, not really.  I'm not real fond of spiders, but I don't freak out, scream, and run at the sight of one.  If they are small enough, it doesn't even bother me if they get on me.  Now, I don't want the big ones crawling on me, but I can still be around them.  

4.  Is there anything you recommend for cutting the grocery bill?  

Well, since it's just me, I don't usually have a problem with groceries.  However, there are a couple of things I still do.  I buy store brands instead of name brands.  I also buy in bulk when I can.  Like chicken, for example.  I buy the family pack of chicken legs then break it up into packages of two each, and freeze them that way.  I bought a small vacuum sealer a few years ago, and that makes the food last even longer in the freezer.

5.  Tell me something that made you happy over the past week.

I managed to find 250 more rounds of range ammo!  The funniest part was when the UPS man was delivering the package, Jake wanted him to throw a stick and actually followed the man into the truck.  I had to go out there and get him out of the truck so the man could get my package.   Jake is a very friendly dog, but he is a bit big, so many people are intimidated by his size.  To date, though, he has never bitten anyone.  Well, not to my knowledge, but since he isn't my dog, I can't say that for certain. 

I hope you've enjoyed this week's chat.   Since the weather is getting warmer, it'll be too hot to sit on the porch during the day, so we'll have our chats later in the day-- with lemonade instead of coffee. 

Be sure to come back next week for another chat.

Our cat used to get in the UPS truck and I'd have to chase it down the driveway to get her out. The UPS mad thought I was weird, but the cat WAS in there. I hope you don't have any more of those headaches. Feel better!
