Although you cannot tell from where you are sitting, our chat today is not on the porch but under a big shade tree. It is the day after Memorial Day and comfortable - not too hot, not cold. The days will only get less comfortable as the heat builds, the humidity drips, the earth dries out, your car gets so hot you get burned getting in, you can't take off enough clothes to cool down, the bugs become annoying, the sun never seems to goes away ... (can you tell I am a "winter" person?) LOL
Oh where is my beautiful winter!
No matter. It is another day visiting with friends at Everyday Ruralty. And there are questions to be answered ...
- When you were a child, what age did you think was "OLD"?
- How often do you have dessert?
- What's your favorite kind of exercise?
- Do you watch movies on TV, movies from a rental or the library, or movies online?
- Tell me something you remember about your grand mother's/grand father's house? I'm thinking of something you saw all of the time, like a picture, clock, statue, teapot. or some thing that was always there.
1. How old was "old" when I was a child? I think considered 40 to be old. And if my son happens to be reading this post ... it still is old, my dear boy. Oh, and I hope you have a Happy Birthday this September. You will be how old? Now let me think. I was there so I should know. Oh, yes, I remember now ... 40!!!
That felt good.
Glad that was one of the questions!!
2. How often do I have dessert? Every darn chance I can. I don't want to get to the end of my life thinking - oh, why did I pass up that Boston Cream Pie for boiled carrots!
3. What is your favorite kind of exercise? Walking. I should be doing it more. And second to that is knitting. My fingers get such a work out.
4. Do you watch movies on TV, movies from a rental or the library, or movies online? We mostly watch movies from a rental. No commercials, on when I want it to be on, and no trips out of the house to get them - delivered by the post office. Sometimes we watch movies online, but it seems like the ones we want to see are most readily on disk only.
5. Tell me something about your grandparents' house? Gosh, I had to think about that one a bit because I only saw them at their house - maybe once a year. I think the thing I most remember (and sometimes dream about) was my grandparents' porch. It was a screen in porch - not all that remarkable, but when our family would come to visit (we lived in another state), my dad would sleep out on the porch. I think they had a big rocker.
Well that is it for this Tuesday chat. I don't always participate, because I am trying to become more of a free soul - not tied down to stuff like I always seem to do. There are things in my life that tie me down in a big way, so on the little stuff - I like to keep my options open. But these questions were fun this time, especially #1!!!
