It's that day again.  Time to head off down the road to chat with the folks who are gathered at Patrice's place.

 Apparently, Patrice is back from her trip and Wendell is back in the barn.  For the record, I think he did a great job last week.  I've just grabbed a sock on the needles and flown in late and breathless.  Everyone seems to be chatting already...

Kimberly asks: How long have you blogged?  I've been blogging for about five years.  I started out quite shy and quiet.  I read but never commented.  I can still remember how nervous I was making that first comment.  It felt like pretty bold step.   Each year gets better with new friends I make around the world.  

Lana asks:What is the most difficult part of taking care of chickens?  Not having any chickens, I can't really answer that one.  My brother had a pet chicken when we were kids.  We lived in the town but it was OK to have the chicken, I guess.  She laid eggs for him but obviously couldn't keep up with enough for a whole family.  

Susannah asks: Would you prefer to live where it's hot or cold?  Neither one.  I'm happy right where I am.  I like to visit places where the sun shines hotter than here but I'm always happy to come home.  And, cold?  No way...I hate being cold?  

Farm Girl asks: What sort of things are you looking forward to in 2012?  I'm looking forward to seeing how my grandkids change in the next year.  Being a Grammy means I can relax and watch.  I'm also looking forward to doing more rug hooking than I  have in the past few years.  And I have plans to make a couple of quilts.  There's a lot of stash  fiber for every craft to catch up on.  

Dreaming asks: What's for dinner?  That's usually a hard question at this time in the morning.  But not today!  I'm going out for dinner tonight...a Greek restaurant in our neighborhood.  We'll be a big party of friends (about 20) so I know it's going to be a good - and noisy - time.        

Thanks, Patrice, for hosting us once again.  If you want to share in the chat just come on over to Everyday Rurality and have a seat.

Seeing how the grandkids change is a great thing to look forward to.

You just reminded me that Hubs and I were given a gift certificate to our favorite restaurant and we haven't used it yet! But not tonight...DoodleBug and company come for dinner on Wednesdays! My favorite night of the week!

What a fun post and a great way to learn about blogging buddies.

Thanks for your visit. :-)

I recall being shy about commenting when I first started to blog, too. It was like the cat had my tongue! Thanks for the honest glimpse into what makes you tick!

Mimi said...

Oooh, you're bringing back memories to me too! I was shy at commenting and also at taking part in memes; I remember seeing Ruby Tuesday here for weeks and thinking "I'd love to do that", but being too shy to ask! Seems weird now!
Hope you had an enjoyable dinner out. I love to eat out. it's one of my favourite things to do!

I hope you have fun at the Greek place, maybe you will post pictures? I've never been to a Greek restaurant. You have been blogging for longer then me, too,

Patrice said...

I hate to ask you this, but would you please link to chats again. I don't know what happened, but when I clicked on your link, I got my own dashboard. I tried several times and it kept coming up. I was afraid just anyone could get behind my controls and... Sorry for the trouble. My techie isn't home, so I have no idea what happened. I'm just glad I discovered it! Your comments make me think that it didn't happen to others, but I'm no techie. Thanks, Patrice

What yumminess did you eat at the Greek restaurant? We bought baclava awhile back hoping for a yummy treat, only for me to find out it had cashews in it. I am allergic to cashews, so I couldn't eat them. My lips would have swollen up bigger than the Goodyear blimp if I had. ICK
I hope that you had a blast with your friends.

I'm here from Patrice's porch. Have a great night!
