Chats on the Farmhouse Porch: Sleepover

I'm late, again, for chatting on the porch with Patrice from Everyday Rurality and her friends. But, wait, I was on the porch yesterday... I just wasn't chatting. It was more like muttering under my breath! I washed the glass of our two French doors that go out on the porch. I erased a few months of doggie nose prints. So, even if I wasn't exactly chatting on the porch... I was out there!

  1. Do you still write letters (snail mail)?
  2. Do you sing?
  3. Did you participate in Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, or Cyber Monday?
  4. How many guests can you have spend the night at your house? Could Wendell fit?
  5. Have you ever gone fishing?

My Answers:
1.  I write a few letters now and then. Generally, I type them, because I can type faster than I can write, so sometimes I will type a letter and then print it out. I need to get back into the habit of writing a weekly letter to my MIL. I did that for a while, putting a few pictures of something that happened that week, and telling her about it.

2.  I sing in the car. I have little talent, but I enjoy singing along to the radio.

3.  I did some Cyber Monday shopping. I bought the silliest thing. When I got on Amazon's site they had a special on coconut water.  My son and daughter-in-law (that's the first time I've written that :)) It is so nice to say!) will be here for Christmas and they like it. So, why not?! No, I won't wrap that one up - it will just be on hand for them to enjoy.

4.  I could host a sleepover - why don't y'all come for a visit?

green room: double bed
blue room: queen bed
basement: two twin day beds
basement: two couches
living room: one couch
in storage: two twin inflatable beds
RV: queen bed and queen sleeper sofa
and a flop-down sofa that supposedly sleeps two!

2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 4 + 2 (if you are really small) = 17

Oh, and Wendell is more than welcome to come, and can bring a friend! We have two stalls with lovely Dutch doors that open into a large paddock. I think Wendell would be very comfortable. 

5.  I've gone fishing a bit. I haven't done it in a while, but hope to go soon, since I gave Mr. Dreamy a fly-fishing trip for Christmas - last year!

Hey, SC friends... check out the hat!

Come join the chat. You can respond to Patrice's questions, too, and we can get to know each other a bit better. You can answer in comments on my site, or her site, or you can link your blog responses to Patrice's site:

Everyday Ruralty


  1. 1. I do not write letters, my writing is barely legible.
    2. I sing in the car and I sing at work (which gets me in trouble). But my coworker and I have lots of fun.
    3. I did not do any shopping.
    4. I could probably have 4 people over, but no horses. Ah, the joys of living in the 'burbs...
    5. I used to go fishing with my dad all the time. Now I go with my husband. I hate hooking the worms and taking the fish off. I just like to catch them!

  2. You have SO much room at your place for guests. I wish I did. Wendell thinks a trip would be fun. He sings too:P Have a good rest of the week!

  3. You sure have a lot of sleepover potential!! Love these posts as I get to know you better each time.

    1. Thanks, Inger. It is nice to learn about other bloggers - I love it!

Invincible I am Not

Despite my belief (certainly flawed) that I am invincible and irreplaceable, I find that alas, I am not.  Despite my consistently taking pre...
