Chatting With Patrice @ Farmhouse Ruralty #78

Everyday Ruralty
Patrice has a few fun ramdom questions today.  :D

1.   Have you ever been on a boat? (Motor boat, sail boat, cruise ship, ark, or Good Ship Lollipop)

Oh, yes.  Many types of boats.  We are boat owners, and my husband is a sailer.  We love water sports!
I've even been on these:

Hawaiian outrigger canoe

and these:

Venetian gondola

2.   Do you need an alarm to wake up in the morning, or do you wake up naturally? If you have an alarm, tell us what type.  

Yes I do!  We use a clock radio.  I hate it.

3.   Have you ever had a yard sale?

Yep, but not since 1996.  We're long overdue, but out HOA doesn't allow yard sales.  :/

4.   Do you like kitchen gadgets? What are some of your favorite?

I'm a sucker for kitchen gadgets, and I actually use most of them.  This one's my very favorite:

Breville Milk Frother

Here's mine on my beverage station tray.

5.   Do you read labels at the grocery store?

Yes.  But I don't like it because it always depresses me.

Until next time..

  1. I love kitchen gadgets also,but I don't have a milk frother. That is very cool. I hate reading labels too, very depressing.

  2. What fun responses. I love reading these tidbits about other's take on their life- xo Diana

  3. I want to be on one of those Venetian gondolas! But, I'd really settle for the porch swing, nice! And so is the interview.

  4. I love sailing. I enjoyed a gondola once when in Venice. I like your beverage station. So inviting! That's a great idea. HAve a good week!

  5. I love to read these, it lets us see the real YOU!!!

  6. I don't read labels. It's just looking for trouble. I don't want to ruin a good thing. Probably if I knew what was in some stuff, my hair would curl!

  7. Fun questions! My alarm clock is my coffee pot, I refuse to drink old or burnt coffee so I jump out of bed when I hear it:@)

  8. This was fun and I enjoyed learning a bit more about you. Since I retired I don't set an alarm anymore. It's heaven.

  9. oh I would so love to go for a gondola ride. Its always been a dream of mine.

  10. Love your cartoon. I have been a few boats, fishing, motor, houseboat, canoe, pontoon and I actually rode in a gondola myself in Vegas. LOL I love these post, we get to know a little more about you.
