Wednesday Chat #13


There’s still no new questions from Patrice, so I’m going to answer questions from her “Farmhouse Chat #153,” which I didn’t do when it posted new.

What are you most looking forward to in the remaining months of 2014?

Well, I love the cooler temperatures of Fall, but what I love the most about the last few months of the year are the holidays. I positively adore Thanksgiving and Christmas. I would like to try some new home decor this year, but I don’t know if that will happen or not.

Tell us the last movie you saw, or book you read.

I’m currently in the middle of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Will read it and loved it, so now I’m hurriedly reading it in anticipation of the film coming out later this week (tomorrow, actually). We’re hoping Grandma (my mom) is available to babysit soon so we can have a date to go see it – probably on Tuesday next week so our tickets will be only $5 apiece :).

Do you ever make smoothies or juice?

Not smoothies. My blender broke a few months ago and I can never remember to replace it when we’re at Goodwill. As for juice, the only kind I make is reconstituting the frozen cans!

Who do you wish you could talk to right now?

My mother-in-law. She passed away when Munchkin was just a year old. She was the only person I knew who was incredibly talented at sewing. I’d love to take lessons from her now! She started teaching me when I was pregnant with Seahawk, but I didn’t have the resources then to take the hobby seriously. Now that I do, I don’t have the know-how to do it right.

Please finish this sentence: If I could spend a week in a lovely cabin in the woods, I would like to . . .

I can honestly say that I’ve never been in a cabin in the woods, so I don’t know how to answer this question. I mean, I could say something cliche like “I would like to read a great book” or “I would like to sew a quilt by hand.” But I don’t know that either of those things are practical – or true. I like sewing, and I like reading, but I also like the comforts of home. So there you have it.

Your turn to answer one of these questions in the comments for me!

    Wow! I’m #104 in line for this book. I’ve never even heard of it. Evidently I am a little late on this one!

    • Well, if you can swing the $10 for the “pulp fiction” version of it (the one on cheap paper in the paperback bin section of the store…), it’s worth it šŸ™‚ That’s what we did.
