Chats on the Farmhouse Porch 2013: #39

Everyday Ruralty


When you pass the salt, do you automatically send the pepper with it?

No. David doesn't like pepper. But, he generally passes it to me because I do like it.

How many fingers do you usually type with?

All of them usually. Sometimes I only use two because I'm holding my head up with the other hand.

Do you keep interesting coins when you run across them?

Yes. We have a silverware chest that has all sorts of coins from around the world. When our oldest son was first in the Navy, he sent us coins from different countries that he went to.

Did you enjoy September, or did it fly by too quickly?

It went by way too fast!

If I could _________, I'd get more done each day.

David says if he could blink, he would get more done. For me, if I could get a big boost of energy, I could get more done. Anemia is the pits!

  1. Most of us think September went by too quickly, and it will get faster coming up to Christmas!
    Take care.

    1. That's the truth! The older we get, the faster it goes.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a great week!

  2. Energy is hard to find especially as I get older. Hope you find some to enjoy the rest of your week.

    1. Thank you! I hope that you do, too.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a great week!

  3. Hi Suzanne! I don't think I understand the blinking comment? But I am a little slow. I usually type with all my fingers too (even thumb for the space bar!).

    I'm not too sure what happened to Sept either. And I do feel bad about your energy level. Do you need iron supplements? My daughter is on them for her pregnancy. Apparently she was craving ice chips, which is a sign of anemia. Maybe your doctor could help you out.

    Always to fun to read posts like this!

    1. Hi Ceil. :) I believe that David was referencing Jeannie's blinking from the old show "I Dream of Jeannie." She blinked things into happening.

      Thank you. I do have iron supplements as well as Vitamin C supplements which is supposed to help the iron to absorb. I just don't always remember to take them. I think that it is interesting that your daughter craving ice chips was related to her iron levels. When I was so very sick in 2010, my iron levels were at severe anemia status. My hemoglobin was 7, rather than the 14 that I was accustomed to. I couldn't breathe unless I was packed in ice. He must have spent a fortune on bags of ice that summer!

      I hope that things go great for your daughter and grandchild. :) How exciting!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a great week.

  4. When I started juicing, I discovered that I really like beet in my juices. It is wonderful with strawberries. That way you get your iron and vit C. Blinking would be useful, if it only worked!

    1. It would be great if blinking worked. :)

      I had beets once when I was a little kid. Considering that I had been under the impression that my daddy was making a banana pudding, I was very shocked to bite into it and find something red instead. To this day, this memory still makes me laugh. I don't remember it being disgusting, but I also don't remember if I liked it or not. :)

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I hope that you have a great week!
