Just a chat

I've discovered a relaxing way to spend a summer morning.  You might want to visit Patrice at Everyday Rurality for her

What could be nicer than sitting on the front porch with friends, watching the world go by and having a bit of chat?  I'm bringing my knitting.  Of course, we have to have some stuff to talk about.  So, there are some starter questions. 

1.  Have you ever colored your hair?  If so, what colors have you tried?
I experimented a couple of times when I was at university.  Being a natural 'dirty' blonde which is a more glam way of saying light brown, I thought my hair needed something.  I was a platinum blonde, then an ash blonde, and finally dark brown before I let it all grow out.  That was many years ago.  I'm quite happy with the gray and don't plan to change it. 

2. What's your favorite kind of music?
All kinds.  My very favorite is jazz.  Then comes classical.  Rock from the 50's and 60's is great when I feel like singing and dancing.  I'm a little bit country and will tolerate the occasional show tune.  Not big on Broadway or movie musicals but I do enjoy opera.  Don't ask me what the difference just is.

3. What are the last three movies you watched?
Music and Lyrics, The History Boys and Rio.  I'm not a big movie fan.

4.  Do you remember your first pet? 
No.  I've heard lots about cat we had when I was a little girl but I don't remember him at all. 

5.  What was the best or most interesting 'back to school' thing from your childhood?
I think that it was the going back part that I liked best.  I loved school and, for the most part, had great teachers.  Going back to school meant shopping and new stuff:  pencils, erasers, notebooks, clothes and shoes.  This was a pretty exciting thing for us kids.  I think my mother was pretty excited, too. 

Want to sit on the porch with us?  Head on over - it's a nice day.

I wish I even had a porch! I would love to sit on yours with you and talk as I watch you knit. I hated school, but loved shopping for the supplies!!! I have brown hair, but as a teenager had it peroxided blonde for a short time. Till the roots got too much trouble to do.

I love my porch. We have lots of chats out there while knitting and watching the world go by.

I sometimes wish my hair was blonde, the gray doesn't seem to show up as much on those lucky ladies! I love all kinds of music too- but no country.

Thanks for joining in on Chats on the Farmhouse Porch. I'm glad you brought your knitting and joined in! I forgot to list it, but I actually like Opera too. My #2 daughter is studying it, so it's a good thing I like it. :)Stop by and join us again next week.
