Chat, Chat, Chatting

~ road across the mountain ~
It's time for Patrice, Everyday Ruralty, and Chat Number 115. Here are her questions and my answers...enjoy! (hopefully...)

1. Do you have any special plans for this week? Yes, but it's a secret and I can't tell...yet.

2. What's the most relaxing thing you do? A soak in a deep tub of hot water. Dave was always a shower man and I'm a tub kinda gal, although, since his death, I'm generally too time crunched to do other than take a shower. Last week, I filled up the Whirlpool with hot water and Epsom salts, lowered my achy bones into it and soaked until it turned cold...bliss! Then, I put on my flannel night gown, took two aspirin and went to bed...bliss!

3. Have you ever worn a wig? I am ashamed to say, yes. When I was in high school I used my hard earned money to buy (what I know now) was a really cheap looking blonde wig. I wore the dratted thing to church, one time, and some kind souls gave me a compliment (stars in their crown, to be sure!). Ah me, I thought it was purty when all it was, was pretty stupid looking. No, I haven't a clue what happened to it; maybe someone used it for Halloween...?

4. Do you have an office or special place to use your computer? Yes, in the living room, beside the window looking down the valley, same view in my header photo. The wood stove, television and a card table are also in this room; the card table used for projects, crafts, quilting, etc. I'm not much on "just" watching television, I need to be doing something else.

5. What are your favorite kind of socks? Wool in colder temps and cotton in warmer temps; I wear what's appropriate for the season and foot wear.

  1. Well that's some view! I have a wall! Mysterious plans- how exciting! I like a bath too, but I'm afraid ours is not a whirlpool.

  2. Oh, Whirlpool tub, sounds wonderful.

  3. I love the view from where you have your computer. Like you, I have to be doing several things at once! Your whirlpool bath sounds very nice. I'm curious about your mysterious week!

  4. The only special plans I've got for this week is the Hallowe'en Party we're putting on tomorrow. And, guess what, I'm going to wear a wig! Maybe it's the one you lost so many years ago. [ha ha]

    I'm a shower gal. Mostly because I'm always in a hurry. But I totally get the soaking, especially with as hard as you work. You deserve it.

    I've got an entire bedroom that's converted into an office. I feel at home there since I'm a retired business woman. It was my element for over 30 years.

    I like warm wooly socks in the winter too. I call it my Joy Of Sox. The rest of the time I wear sandals (naked feet ~ there's a joke there ... somewhere). ~:)

  5. What a gorgeous view you have!

  6. Soaking in a deep tub, followed by a flannel nightie sounds perfect. That's how I like to end a stressful day. I hope your exciting mystery event goes well :)

  8. A room with a view. Definitely.
    I am so happy to hear you took a few minutes for yourself and soaked in a lovely hot bath. Hug Carly for me.

  9. hello from kansas.
    funn facts!

    love the blonde wig...hehe. I had a fall. Remember those? Oh i thought it was just so wonderful.

    i think that we know a little more about 'cha,

  10. What a fun post you did today, Sandra. I'm dying to know what that secret is you can't tell - yet. :)

    I love the view you have from your computer...and I am with you...a card table goes up here after Christmas so that I can get some scrap booking done!

  11. I've had only a shower here for about 30 years, but am trying to get some work done on the bathroom (needs a real tear-down) and if I can ever get the workers here, I am dreaming of putting in a deep tub for bone-soaking. Would love to be chin-deep in hot water once in a while!

  12. I love that header photo. I don't think I'd ever get much done if my office overlooked that! I'd be daydreaming. Have a good week!

  13. Mags, good plans have come to pass.

    TL, it's always good to climb into a tub of hot water.

    Mildred, mysterious plans have come to pass and it was fun, more later.

    Sparky, warm wool's a very good thing.

    Karen, yes, the views here are wonderful, in every direction.

    Kim, all is well.

    Marsha, Carly said, "thanks for the hug."

    Deanna, at first I thought you meant you took a in fell down, then I realized you meant hair...I'm so silly! -LOL-

    Dianna, almost ready to blog about my big secret...

    Patrice, it's beautiful here, in all directions and daydreaming is a good thing.
