Chats on the Farmhouse Porch

Everyday Ruralty
  1. What is your favorite time of day to read? If you don't enjoy reading, then what is your favorite time to watch TV/movies?
  2. Did you watch the Super Bowl? If so, what was your favorite commercial? If you didn't watch it, what did you do Sunday night?
  3. Have you been watching Downton Abbey?Who's your favorite character? If not, have you seen any interesting TV or movies series lately?
  4. Do you enjoy home parties for selling items? (like Pampered Chef, Southern Living, Mary Kay)
  5. Please finish this sentence. If I work very hard, I can__________________.

1. My favorite time of day to read is in the evening. I am not much of a TV watcher, but my hubby and children like watching Netflix at night. I sit in the living room with them and they watch and I read.

2. I did watch the super bowl and loved the Farmer commercial! Made me cry. My FIL is a farmer, and DH is a hobby farmer. I know the hours it takes to work the ground and grow and harvest and deal with the animals. I raised Dairy goats for 5 years, and the commercial was really a great tribute.

3. Never seen Downtown Abbey. Have heard a lot about it. I only see one season on netflix, and we don't watch regular TV. I am wating until more seasons are on netflix so that I don't have to wait forever to see it!

4. I do not like home parties. I feel pressured to buy things that I really don't need. I rather have someone over for coffee and to chat and fellowship that way than feel the need to buy things.

5. If I work very hard, I can not save myself. Salvation comes from Christ alone, no matter how much I work. It is by Grace we are saved.

  1. I like your last answer. As far as Downton goes, I hope you get to see more. I have enjoyed it a lot. Have a great week!

  2. My hubby is a tv-aholic, too, but I can't concentrate enough to read if the TV is on, so I generally read while he's sleeping. I play "tent" under our blankets and read on his Kindle while he snoozes away. It helps me to go to sleep sometimes, too.

    Have a great week!

  3. I liked the farmer commercial as well. I grew up on a farm and one day hope to have one again.

    Reading is something I am doing much more of. I'm trying to disconnect from the electronic world more.

    Have a great week.

  4. you would think those home parties would work on the pressure of it all - it seems a lot of us feel that way in this front porch here. hope you get to see more of the Downton Abbey - you will love it. i know my MIL said you could find it on PBS online .. maybe check it out there. i watched some on Netflix ... maybe a bit on Hulu. not recalling all of that - just know i am hooked. nice to meet you. take care.

  5. Sounds like nice relaxing evenings at your house in the family room. :) Have a great week.
