Chats On The Farmhouse Porch

I see lots of new people are joining us for chats, now. Welcome! Pull up a chair, grab a glass of lemonade and join me on the porch.  I am one of the ones who has to post later in the day, as I don't have computer access at work. 

Everyday Ruralty

1.  Are you looking forward to fall? 

Oh my lord, YES!!!  I can't wait for Fall!  I love everything about it, from the colors to the smells to the chilly nights and frosty mornings to the leaves crackling underfoot.  My favorite fall thing to do is to scuffle through piles of leaves.  It's like nature's bubblewrap.   No matter how bad of a day I am having, or how down I am, scuffling through leaves always makes me feel better.

2.  What are the three best colors for you to wear, and the three worst? 

 Honestly, I have no idea.  I've never really paid attention before.  I do know that blues and greens bring out my eyes.  Other than that, I just buy whatever is on clearance. 

3.  What is your favorite kind of juice? If you are not into juice, you can tell us your favorite flavor of soda, tea, coffee, Tang, mud, etc.

Orange juice.  Except that I'm allergic to oranges.   That's really the only kind of juice I like, though I do sometimes drink pineapple juice mixed with Sprite.  My drink of choice is the store brand version of Sprite and Diet Dr. Pepper. 

 4.  Have you ever been in the hospital (at least an overnight)? You don't need to share the ailment, but tell us what the longest time is. 

Let's see...I had my tonsils out when I was 5 and back then it required an overnight stay.  I had pneumonia when I was 11, and was in the hospital for a week.  And when I was 28 and my son was born, well, there were some minor complications and we stayed for a week.  I was in the Navy then, so I didn't get slapped with that huge hospital bill, thank goodness.  

5.  Do jingles, songs from ads, and TV or movie themes stick in your head? Do you find yourself singing them? (This question means that I'm trying to find out if I'm the only crazy person who sings quirky stuff!) 

Why, yes, they do.  My current favorite jingle is the new Lowe's tune.  I can sing it all day long. 

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be along over to your place directly.

Scuffing through the crunchy leaves is a favorite thing to me also. Especially wearing a great pair of high boots.

I love fall too. Unfortunately, all we get is some cooler weather...IF we're lucky. I miss the days of the falling leaves and the frost. We seem to have been robbed of fall for the last 5+ years.

Crunching through fall leaves IS pretty fun!!

I'm ready for fall and cooler weather, although it seems far off right now. We are headed to Ecuador for a vacation - in the mountains.

I never pay much attention to how colors do on me. I just wear whatever, but I think peach is my best color.

Fall is the best.

I agree with everything you said about fall. :) I was in the hospital for a week when I was in 2nd grade, with pneumonia. Have a good weekend!
