Chats on the Farmhouse Porch: Thanksgiving

Brrrr..... it is a bit chilly to sit on our front porch this morning, but it should warm up by the afternoon when the sun will be on the porch. Care to join me? Patrice has given us some questions to start our conversations - how would you answer these? Join us by responding on your blog or in a comment on my blog. You can link to other's responses by clicking on the Chats on the Farmhouse Porch image below my post.

Thanksgiving - 24 years ago


  1. What's your favorite Thanksgiving side dish? For anyone not in the US, what's your favorite fall side dish?
  2. What's the first thing you do when you have a headache?
  3. Do you like to "people watch"? (Observe people in public while waiting for something or relaxing)
  4. Where's your family most likely to eat for a day to day meal? (Read= not holiday)
  5. Tell me about your plans for Thanksgiving Day. Or tell me something special you will do soon.
My Answers:

1. I can only pick one dish? Well, if I can only have one, I'd choose the sweet potato casserole, mixed in with a bit of stuffing that was sitting next to it on the plate. (Was that cheating - trying to get two 'dishes' in one?)

2. I rarely have a headache - so when one comes along, I usually drink a tall glass of water - thinking I might be dehydrated, and then, if that doesn't take care of it, I pop an Aleve. Years ago, when my hormones were doing some strange things, I had miserable headaches. The only thing that came close to touching those headaches was Excedrin. 

3. I do enjoy people watching - but I get easily distracted with a book, or now, with games on my phone. Recently I've been hooked on a Math puzzle called KenKen. It is similar to Sudoku.

4. We usually eat at the table in the kitchen 'nook'. However, if something interesting is on TV we will plop down in front of the TV. Oh, horrors! My mom would have a fit!

5. I haven't received an official invitation, but I've been told that we are invited to .... see if you can follow this .... my Dad's girlfriend's nephew's house.

  5. Two answers for one- why not! Water works for headaches most of the time.I heard about KenKen, but haven't seen it yet. Sounds like an interesting tie to Thanksgiving Dinner if I need a road map to figure out who they are- just kidding. Wherever you go, I wish you a super day!

  7. This was another fun post to get to know you better. I have to go and clean house right now, so I won't participate in the porch chat this time.

  10. What's your favorite Thanksgiving side dish? For anyone not in the US, what's your favorite fall side dish? I like sweet potatoes.
    What's the first thing you do when you have a headache? Take an Aleve with a glass of water. I rarely get headaches anymore since the "change".
    Do you like to "people watch"? (Observe people in public while waiting for something or relaxing)
    Yes, we both like to people watch..and discuss what occupation we think they have/had:)
    Where's your family most likely to eat for a day to day meal? (Read= not holiday) We eat at the table..we can watch the TV from there.
    Tell me about your plans for Thanksgiving Day. Or tell me something special you will do soon. I think we are cooking:)
