Chatting on the Porch

Today I'm joining with Patrice at Everyday Ruralty for the weekly Chats on the Farmhouse Porch.  I wish it was warm enough to sit on the porch for real.

Each week Patrice posts a series of questions for us to answer, so lets get on with it.


1. What is your favorite time of day to read? If you don't enjoy reading, then what is your favorite time to watch TV/movies? 
I like to read a bit when I go to bed as I have often have trouble falling asleep but the lighting by my bed is not good.  So I ordered a new kindle paperwhite as it has a back-light.  It should be here in a few days.  Can't wait! 

2. Did you watch the Super Bowl? If so, what was your favorite commercial? If you didn't watch it, what did you do Sunday night?
I watched the half time show.  Luckily half time ended before Downton started.  I watched the commercials the next day on YouTube.  In Canada we don't see the same commercials that air in the States.  Loved the randy seniors/taco bell ad and the farmers ad.  But if I have to see the Go Daddy commercial one more time, I'm going to vomit!

3.  Have you been watching Downton Abbey?Who's your favorite character? If not, have you seen any interesting TV or movies series lately?
Yes, I am addicted now.  It's hard to pick a favorite character but my least favorite is Matthew's mother.  She just gets right on my nerves!

4. Do you enjoy home parties for selling items? (like Pampered Chef, Southern Living, Mary Kay)
No, I try to avoid them  whenever possible.  If I "have" to go, I end up feeling obliged to order something, whether I want to or not.   Now if someone were to start a "WOOL" party, that would be different :)

5. Please finish this sentence. If I work very hard, I can__afford to buy more wool.....Lol

Don't forget to visit the other participants in this linky.  And Thank You Patrice for hosting.


  1. I think a wool party would be fun. I don't hook, but I've always been fond of a variety of crafts. I agree that the farmer commercial for the Super Bowl was good, and the GoDaddy is one that would make someone vomit. I hope you have a good week!

  2. Evening Kim, enjoyed the chat with you....Francine.

  3. I totally agree with you about the GoDaddy commercial. It was disgusting. I couldn't even watch. I had to turn my head.

  4. oh I like matthews mother she is the nice lady. Although I do enjoy the grandmother.
    oh a wool party yeah now sign me up.

  5. Oh, I love your answers - especially the wool! I'm just beginning to collect my stash.
    I hope you enjoy your new Kindle. Recently I've been reading books on my iPhone using a Kindle app. The light is great at night!

  6. Now I totally like the idea of a wool party!!! I would go to one of those in a heartbeat.
    I think you have something there.
    Well I hope you watch it all soon so I can talk to you about it. :) I am just bursting.

  7. I agree with you about the Go-Daddy commercial, totally gross. I think you're going to love your Kindle. Wool Party is a great idea, I might bring up the idea of a wool exchange to my Rug Hooking group.

  8. Now a wool party is something I would love to attend! Enjoy your new Kindle. My hubby bought me a Kindle Fire for my birthday. So far I am loving it.

    I agree with the GoDaddy commercial. ICK!

  9. i'm curious as to why folks like the Go Daddy commercial? (please don't vomit, just run from the room, sounds a whole lot better than getting sick. ha. ha!!!) i just don't understand that whole point - just because a "geek" kissing a pretty girl - what's the point? i love Downton Abbey. i love my Kindle. have a great day. nice to meet you through front porch. take care. ( :

  10. I could hardly wait to click over here when I saw you in my google reader! I love it when you answer questions. I can't do those home parties that sell stuff. I am glad we are so isolated! Well most of the time.. :) Enjoy your Wednesday and your new Kindle!

  11. I have that Kindle and read in the dark all the time. I hope you enjoy yours too!
