Chats on the Farmhouse Porch- 72

 

Everyday Ruralty



Its only been a week and I nearly forgot to do this week's meme. I have been so busy the past 2 days making candy. My daughter and I made 2 pans of peanut butter fudge, 1 chocolate fudge, 1 dreamsicle fudge, a pan of oreo balls and 2 pans of mint patties. We didn't have a lot of money for presents so we made up bowls of candy and gave them to neighbors and some of my closest friends.

Questions
  1. What's your favorite ornament on your tree? If you have no Christmas tree, please tell me about something pretty in your home that you enjoy.
  2. What do you do when a telemarketer calls?
  3. What was the last kind of candy you had? Admit it- you had one tiny little bite. We understand:)
  4. Do you send out Christmas cards? If not applicable- do you use snail mail?
  5. Please finish this. I sometimes wonder___________________________.

1.  What's your favorite ornament on your tree? If you have no Christmas tree, please tell me about something pretty in your home that you enjoy.
 I am sure I have posted this a few times but my favorite ornament is a little silver ball that sings like a bird. ( I wrote about it and posted a little video on this page. ) I love that little singing ball and its so funny watching the cats try to figure out where the sound is coming from and the dog runs around barking at the tree).

2. What do you do when a telemarketer calls? Ususally I try to jump in real fast and tell them politely I am not interested and hang up.

3. What was the last kind of candy you had? Admit it- you had one tiny little bite. We understand:)  Some of the homemade mint patties we made today.  They are awesome and taste just like a york patty.

4. Do you send out Christmas cards? If not applicable- do you use snail mail?  I have always hand delivered cards to the people at the church but mailing cards is a tough one for me. I am doing a little better this year. I had my daughter write the addresses and immediately I sent them out.  I had a mini breakdown several years ago and ever since paperwork has been my downfall. I just can't seem to force myself to deal with it. I pay all my bills online for this reason.

5. Please finish this. I sometimes wonder___________________________.
It probably comes from watching too much It's a Wonderful Life but I have always wondered how my life would have been different if I had just made one or 2 different choices. Guess I will never know so I just deal with the here and now but it does still cross my mind.

I've wondered that too but then I remember God is in control, and He knows what's best. He knows how my life started and how it will end, so no worries :).

I pay my bills online too, but it's nice to get a card in the mail with someone's handwritten greeting. I give out cards in person to my neighbor's, though.

I need to get my cards ready to hand out at school but I will need to send out New Year's cards this year. We haven't all been together yet and won't until next week. By then, it's too busy to add addressing and mailing cards.

Okay...I want to be in your kitchen...YUMMY everywhere. As far as your last answer, I often think the same thing & this is how I made peace with it. I took a good look at my husband, daughter, life, & myself. Then I decided that I love who I have become & I love my life (maybe not my circumstances), & if I had not made those mistakes I may not be or have what I have today. & not making those mistakes is not worth not having what I have today...Does that make any sense? Anyway, have a blessed week:O)

our pets are so entertaining I can just see the dog perking his ears to locate the noise LOL
The last question has been great so fun chatting with you all on the porch wishing you a great week :}

Sorry it took me so long to get over to your blog. I've been trying to catch up with shopping, cooking, and cleaning. I bet the cats like the ornament that makes bird sounds. You certainly have been busy making candy! Have a great week.
