♥ Chats on the Farmhouse Porch ♥

I'm joining Patrice for a chat on her farmhouse porch.  :)
Everyday Ruralty

1. How many load of laundry do you do each week (about)?

We do about 5 or 6 loads a week.  Joy (my 14 year old daughter) helps me keep the laundry caught up.  We are quite spoiled now to our homemade laundry detergent too.

2. Where do your household pets sleep? If you have no pets, please skip to the next question.
We have one cat (Bambi) and she starts off in the bed with us to get a little attention, then she moves to the floor, beside the dresser, in our room for the rest of the night usually. 
3. What is your favorite thing to listen to while you drive?
I've always said that it's whatever my kids are listening to.  Most of the time it is our Christian radio station, K-Love.  When Joy and Luke are with me, we also listen to a few CDs as well.......here lately it's been Owl City, Francesca Batistelli, and also a Swing Dance CD we just got from a graduation party.  That's quite a variety, isn't it?

Oh, and I can never just listen to music in the car.....I sing along, always!  If I'm ever alone driving (which is a very rare thing), I like silence.  I guess because it is because it's so rare that I'm alone that I enjoy my quiet moments.
4. Do you have to do a big clean-up when you have company, or are you always ready for guests?
Yes....a clean up definitely.  It's a joke around here when I start really cleaning......the kids ask "who's coming"?  Being here all day, homeschooling with books and stuff and a 5 year old active boy with toys strewn out, it definitely needs a pick-me-up!
5. What's your favorite breakfast food?
If I ate what I wanted every morning, it would be waffles probably, but I usually just eat a cereal bar.  I don't know why it is, but when we travel, I love a bigger breakfast.....eggs, bacon, hash browns and biscuits or toast.  It just tastes really good then (maybe because I don't have to cook it)?  :)
That was fun, Patrice!   Thanks for the hospitality on the porch!  :)

Thank you for the follow. Now if I can just keep up with my writing to keep you interested :O) I also started following yours.

Owl City & Francesca Batistelli are hot on our play lists here lately. Owl City is our 17 year old daughter's favorite group.

It's nice to hear from a fellow homeschooling mom of a teen. We seem to be a very rare bread.

Have a blessed week :O)

"Who's coming?" has often been the question here, too. haha

Maybe the food tastes better on the trips because, not only are you not having to cook it, you aren't having to clean the mess either. That makes most anything taste better, in my opinion. :)

I am following you now through GFC and the Feedly Reader. Have a great day!

That's why I love eating breakfast out, no mess to clean up.

I think breakfast is the best meal ever!You have varied taste in music. I think that's kind of cool. My mom loved the swing bands. I'm also the home school mom of two teens and a little. One of my teens made it to college. She comes home Saturday, then goes to study in England. Have a good week!
