I'm with Patrice again, on her porch. Head over to Everyday Ruralty and read some more from the chatting ladies. Here are Patrice's questions for this week:
1. Do you eat eggs? What is your favourite way to serve them?
Patrice, I do not like eggs at all. I mustn't use the word Bleugh for food, but really and truly.... Eggs = bleugh!
Egg Mayonnaise sandwiches - Seriously?!
Boiled eggs? Fried eggs? Nooooooo!
The only way I will eat eggs is when they're baked with flour and some other ingredients. If the eggs are part of
Chocolate Chip Whoopie Pies,
in the meringue of Baked Alaska,
in Lemon Loaves.
Ohhhh yes, I'll eat eggs in these forms. But eggs as eggs? Nope.
2. Do you have a favourite item that you really like having around? (a pillow, a chair, a sweater, a teddy bear etc)
Ummmm ... I don't think so. Mind you, our American friends gave me a blanket wrap for Christmas. It's the coziest thing I have ever used. When I go up to the Lounge at lunch time for my quiet time, I wrap it around me, and it truly feels like it's heated.
Thank you guys!
3. Is most of the furniture in your home dark wood, light wood, painted, lacquered, or distressed?
In the Lounge, it's mostly dark wood. Almost all of that furniture has either been in our home since we were married, or has been given to us by others.
You can't really see a lot of the furniture here, but the framed pictures on the wall give an idea of the colour of the furniture.
In the Family Room, though, the furniture is pine.
This is our slouchy room, where we kick of our shoes, put our feet up,
and it's where Jackson loves to gaze out longingly at the world outside.
4. Please fill in the rest of this sentence. "I could write a book about ____________ "
I could probably write a book about beginning projects which remain unfinished. But of course, the book would be begun and not completed, so you'd never get to see it.
I could almost certainly write a book on the number of times I 'speak' to a person in my mind, but don't actually pick up the phone to call them.
But I'd probably be best at a book that was specifically designed to appeal to any who may wish to read the ramblings of a home-schooling, island-living, kid-loving, somewhat-disjointed mother of four blessings.
5. If money and calender/family obligations weren't an issue, would you prefer to spend next weekend at a Bed and Breakfast, a posh hotel, a cabin in the woods, or on a sailboat on a calm body of water? I guess the last thing - the sailboat - would have to be someplace warm :) (It's 30+ degrees here).
My choice would definitely be a cabin in the woods. Total peace and quite. A log fire (Are they safe in a log cabin in the woods? I have visions of something going awry, and realizing that that log fire would have a whole lot of fuel right on its doorstep. Oh, not a nice thought... But I'm still sticking with the cabin in the woods.)
You offering, Patrice?
