Chats on the Farmhouse Porch 145
June 26, 2014
Hey, how’s everyone?
1. What do you think you would have liked most from my menu?
I would’ve loved the oven-roasted sweet potatoes.
2. Have you ever had an interesting experience with serving dinner guests?
We invited our friends to a sit-down dinner at a hotel, and one of our friends’ sisters crashed our dinner by bringing 5 or 6 of HER friends along. We had no idea who these people were nor had we ever met them. Needless to say, there weren’t enough seats and we had to add on extra places. Never mind that no one from this group, the sister included, brought any gift, they left the party later without so much as a goodbye or thank you, and we never saw them again. Lovely folks!
3. What’s your favorite beverage this summer?
Orange juice. Am totally in love with fresh orange juice.
4. Do you ever have bouquets of fresh flowers in your home?
5. Tell me something interesting. Please.
We met a man this morning and somehow we ended up talking even though I had no idea who he is. I’m not the most chatty of people but it happens sometimes. He and I were chatting like old friends if you can believe it, haha. It was only after he had left that one of my daughters commented he looked and behaved like her high school classmate. This man was much older though. It was only after he’d left that she realized some of the things he’d said actually matched up with what she knew about her ex-classmate. Turns out the man was his uncle. How did that happen?!!
Well, that’s it from me today. Hope you all have a wonderful week.
