Chatting Time

It's time again to join Patrice and Wendell from Everyday Ruralty  for a bit of a mid week chat.

But before we get to the questions, just a little update on the goings-on around here.  First, of course you realize I would never sell sweet Millie in a million years (previous post).  But she has been hyper-needy lately and on Sunday it bordered on hysterical needy!  Last night she was more her normal self so that was good.

And today I am carrying around a new piece of furniture in my car.  (I just hope no one looks in my back seat before I can get home at lunch time.)   Mom's commode (port-a-potty) broke last night so I had to bring it in to the Red Cross depot for replacement.  So basically I have a toilet in my back seat!!  (And people wonder why I'm still single!  HA)

OK, enough toilet talk - Here are this weeks Chat questions.

  1. Do you use any type of water filter (pitcher or sink mount)?
None, I am pleased to say we are blessed with a high quality water source so no need for fancy filters or expensive bottled water.

2.  Do you have any tips for staying hydrated in the warmer weather?
I know the sensible answer (based on the info I provided you with above) would say drink lots of water.  I don't drink as much water as I should.  But there is water in coffee.......

3.   Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
Well, it is a frustrating in-between.  Definitely not straight (not without the flat iron) and definitely not nice beautiful curls.  Its a wavy, frizzy mop and in this humidity it is simply unmanageable!  I will not see another good hair day until Fall when the humidity drops.

4.  Are you on top of all the chores/work you do, or are you always running behind?
Behind.....always behind.  I don't see a future where I am ever caught up.

5.  If you could sing a song to Wendell, what would it be?
I have grown quite fond of Wendell so I wouldn't even consider torturing him with the tone deaf wailing of any tune that comes out of my mouth.  Apparently singing talent skips a generation.  My Mom had a beautiful voice but my Grandma..........well, lets just say it did not sound pretty!

Make sure to visit Everyday Ruralty and join in the chats!


  1. How sweet of you to do that for your mom.

  2. Oh Kim YOU do crack me up!

  3. That port-a- potty thing is a priority and you are such a great daughter to your Mom and a great mom to Millie.

    I hope that you have a great day.

  4. The things we do for those we love... you are a wonderful daughter! Have a good week.

  5. There's water in coffee---you're a hoot! :) I wouldn't sing to Wendell either for the very same reason. So I posted him a video! LOL

  6. I am so glad you mentioned water in coffee because you know that is my favorite way to stay hydrated.
    I think you had great answers this week.

  7. Sorry - had to laugh about being single and a potty in the back seat!

  8. Enjoyed your chat! Your answer on #5 made me smile...I bet Wendell wouldn't mind! :)


  9. Yep, I get hit with the frizz, too. I can totally sympathize with that.

  10. hi, my hair is straight. I went for funny on number 5. I hope it doesn't make Wendell mad. Glad i found yet another great hop to feature.

  11. I think all of us are behind on our chores---but none of us seem to mind!! :)

  12. I love this post. Potty and all. Sing anyway, who cares! Hugs. Tammy

  13. Frustrating is exactly it. You can never win!

  14. Hey... they make special potties to carry in your car... No biggy! If I saw it, I'd think nothing of it!

  15. There's water in Diet Coke, too. :)

    I would know that I'd died and gone to Heaven if I ever got caught up!

  16. My hair's all frizzy with the humidity too. Wendell would appreciate any song. He loves attention. I don't know why your potty seat reminded me of the Beverly Hillbillies and grannie sitting in the rocking chair. lol
