Chats On The Farmhouse Porch

Several of you mentioned that you couldn't comment on my blog.  I was wondering why no one had commented in nearly two weeks!  Turns out that if you turn on Google + Comments, apparently you can only comment on your Google + page.  I didn't realize that.  I turned it off, so now you should be able to comment here again.  If not, someone please let me know and I'll try to figure out something else.

Since it's been so very hot lately, I think we're going to take Patrice's advice and have our chat around the kitchen table today. 

Everyday Ruralty

1.  Do you use any type of water filter (pitcher or sink mount)?

Nope.  I drink it straight from the tap.  There are filters on the water fountains at work, but I don't know what kind they are.  

2.  Do you have any tips for staying hydrated in the warmer weather?

Yep, drink twice as much as you think you need to, especially if you are going to be working outside.  Then drink some more.  And some more.  And still some more. 

3.  Is your hair naturally curly or straight? 

It's naturally curly.  It's long now, and I keep it up at work (safety regulations) but when it was shorter, it was really curly.  I was in the bathroom at work one day and this real snotty, obnoxious ...um, person...yeah, we'll say person, have to keep it family friendly, you know, said looking sideways at me, "Some people just shouldn't get perms in their hair.  It makes them look like they stuck their finger in a light socket."

I was good.  I kept my mouth shut.  Hey, she's the one with the problem.  I like my hair.  

4.  Are you on top of all the chores/work you do, or are you always running behind? 

I guess you could say I'm on top of them, but that doesn't mean they're done.  It just means that there are more important things than housework.   I do them when the need arises, but I don't worry about them.  Since it's just me in the house, I can do that. 

 5.  If you could sing a song to Wendell, what would it be?

In keeping with last week's answer:  "Dashing through the snow, in a one horse open sleigh!  O'er the fields we go, laughing all the way!"

Can you tell I'm ready for cold weather?  I am so tired of being hot.  I haven't even been fishing in a month.  It's just too hot. 

Well, that's it for this week's chat.  My plans for tomorrow got changed, but I'll save that for tomorrow's blog post.  Sigh...

I always behind on my chores because I don't care to do them. LOL Good for you that you could keep your mouth shut to that 'person'. I'm not sure I could have. But then, I always speak before I think. LOL

I love your answer to #4. Life is short, sometimes there is more important things to do than housework!

Karen said...

That was a rude person, to say the least. At least you kept your cool--and it doesn't matter what she thinks anyway!!

My comments have fallen off. I don't always get the computer at night. I get the Kindle. I refuse to type out comments on it - such a pain. Plus, my computer use is just down.

Patrice said...

I can comment! Yippee! I can't believe that person said that about your hair. Sounds like jealously speaking. I commented! I have to go High-Five Wendell now! Oh- he'd be perfect for that "one horse open sleigh"!

Becky G said...

Yay for comments! The funny thing about that person-- today she came in to work with a perm that made her hair look exactly like mine did. It was sooooo hard to keep my mouth shut.

Suzanne McClendon said...

I agree with Patrice. It sounds like that person was jealous of your hair. Her coming in today with a hairdo like yours pretty well seals the deal on that one. You win. :)

Have a great night!
