Chats on the Farmhouse Porch

Everyday Ruralty

Happy New Years everyone. I pray that God richly blesses you this year and you allow Him to guide your steps. I am glad that 2013 is here even though a small part of me is sad. This will be the first year that my brother isn't in and I hate that part of it. I think God has wonderful things in store for me this year so I am just holding onto that promise.

Well its time for the first chat of the year.

1. Do you make New Years resolutions?

I always have and probably always will. One of our traditions is to write them out and put a copy in with the Christmas decorations as we box them up on New Year's Day so that we can look over them again when we take the decorations out at the end of the year.  I even blogged my resolutions already for the year.

2. What do you hope to accomplish this year?

I am hoping to get the trailer mostly remodeled, lose weight naturally and live each day as happy as possible.

3. Tell me about your favorite place to think, create, or just relax.

Any place that is near water. I love to go alongside a stream or a lake. Even as a child, if I was upset I would run to the creek. Something about water has always soothed me . This is one of our local rivers. I really love waterfalls. 

4. Are you a fan of old movies? (Like the ones that were originally black and white.)

I love some of the classics such as Gone with the Wind and The Wizard of Oz. I like a few of the Hitchcock movies also. And of course Its a Wonderful Life. Oh and I love love love all the old Shirley Temple movies, I also love Sonja Henie movies. I used to watch them when I was a child but you never see them on TV anymore. Apparently I am a bigger fan than I thought because when I first saw the question I didn't think I was.

 5. Tell me something that made you happy since our last porch visit. If you're new to the chats, tell me something good that has happened to you lately.
The fact that its a new year has thrilled me to no end. I can't wait to see the promise of this year fulfilled. I also found a board on Pinterest that is full of country wedding ideas and shared it with a friend who is wanting a country wedding. It made her so happy and its always a good feeling to bring happiness to someone else.

They've been advertising the Shirley Temple movies so I've been thinking about them a lot lately.

Happy New Year! I like being near the water too. I like your tradition of putting a copy of your resolutions away with your decorations. What a great idea!

I think it's so cool that Janice sent the teapot. What a sweetie!

We get ACM channel on cable, I believe it stands for American Classic Movies, that shows the old black and white films. I agree, bringing happiness to someone else fills us with happiness. It's a win/win situation! Have a blessed week.
