Chatting on the front porch again...

I'm walking up the road a ways to have a chat with Patrice on her front porch at Everyday Rurality.  Come and join us, if you like.

Today, we're talking about soup and birthdays among other things.  Patrice has a  few questions to get us going:

1.  What's your favorite kind of soup?    Vegetable, vegetable and more vegetable.  I love it thick and full of as many veg as I can find in the fridge.  Homemade is best, of course.

2.  Do you prefer movies or a play?  Oh, I like plays better than movies.  have to admit I haven't been to either in a long time.  But if you were to offer me tickets to both, I'd choose the play.  Or maybe the movie if it was one I really wanted to see.  Oh, see?  Tough question.

3.  What was your most unusual birthday celebration?  Hmmm.  I gues I've always had pretty rdinary celebrations.  Nothing unusual that was memorable.

4.  What position were you in your family?  Eldest.  Still am.  And like all eldest children, I was the experimental child.   Parents seem to get the hang of it better after that first one.  I know this is true because my eldest has told me so.

5.  Please finish this: "Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight.  I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight".   I wish that kindness wasn't such a rarity in our world.  

We're talkin'...I've got my knitting and I'm ready to stay awhile.

Unusually good questions!! The soup would be chicken noodle, or tomato, or vegetable with Parmesan sprinkled on top, or french onion. You see, soup is my favorite food!! I am exactly like you with the movie/play thing. My birthdays are all very ordinary, too. Lots of fun, but nothing out of the ordinary. I am an only child, the descriptive word there was "lonely". My one wish. Well, kindness is great, I think mine would be to eradicate cancer and CF.

I would like to see a bit more kindness in the world, too. Wouldn't it be a perfect place if that were so?

I love porch swings and knitting and talking. Porch questions, fun for sure.
1. Tomato
2. A play
3. Burnt Chicken
4. Middle
5. Common courtesy with a dash of practicing putting the service back into Customer Service

I enjoyed all of your answers! I love veggies in soup. I usually put so many veggies in my soup that I need to add more stock.

I also wish kindness wasn't so rare.
Have a great week!

I really like your wish! How true! I can't sit through a play to save my life. I get so bored. Even when Birdie was in them I hated them. Not her- she did great. But then I had to sit through the parts that she wasn't in...LOL

I wish all of us who join in the linky could really get together and chat some day...wouldn't that be wonderful?!?

Madeleine said...

Good questions and answers. i@ve never made soup. It's on my to do list. I love soup with cheese scones. :O)

Mind if I join you on the porch - I have my knitting in hand as we speak?

1. Favourite soup – home-made tomato and coriander

2. Movies or plays – both, but ‘live’ theatre is a must-do!

3. Most unusual birthday celebration? Stunt-driving course – learned how to do handbrake-turns and wheelies, etc….!

4. Position in your family? Youngest – perhaps an ‘accident’, as there’s a large gap between myself and the next eldest sibling!

5. Wishing on a star? I do my wishing in the mornings! Mostly, it’s to see my family safe and happy.

This was fun - can I join in again?
Oh, drat.....I dropped a stitch....
