Sippin' and Chattin'

I think I'll have some lemonade today while we chat. It's so hot and humid down here. I walked out the back door last night and walked right back inside. UGH.

It's so nice to have the chat to keep us entertained in this oppressive heat! 

Everyday Ruralty 

 Today's Questions:
  1. Do you like cucumbers? Is there a favorite way for you to prepare them? I do like cucumbers. Mostly, I like them between two slices of bread with mayonnaise and a bit of salt and pepper. Yummy!
  2. How good a housekeeper are you? So, so. I live with two extremely messy, dare I say-filthy as well, people so I've kind of given up on being able to keep up with their mess. When they aren't here, it's pretty darn clean though.
  3. Please finish this: To spend a day all by myself would be amazing! The summer break days are my days to recharge for the next school year. Due to the man having an accident, he's been here all summer long. It's been horrid. Fingers crossed that he's out of here and back to work SOON!
  4. How do you handle times when you are "down" or "blue"( depressed )? I chat with an old college buddy and snap right out of it. Listening to music is helpful also. 
  5. Have you started using essential oils, since they have become so popular? I use peppermint, lemongrass, lavender and tea tree. But I think I was using them before they were the 'in' thing to do. Or maybe I just wasn't aware that I was being so cool. LOL
Have a great week, y'all!


  1. Cucumber sandwiches - yum!

    I totally understand wanting alone time. I just got back from a 2 week vacation and now the hubby is back at work and I'm at home. The silence is bliss! (Though of course I do love him dearly!) :)

  2. Plum- They are so good, aren't they? I'm hoping I get some alone time before I go back to school in August. I'm not that fond of mine. Ha!

  3. I did the chat on Sunday (I think it was - or last week). Fun questions and I enjoyed your answers!!

  4. music - the right types can change your mood.
    You might not want to here this but we are having a very cool summer. A little extra rain but cool temps in Chicagoland.

  5. Terri- I noticed the date was the 9th. Not sure how I got messed up. Did we just not get one this week?

    bill- You're right. I don't want to hear that. LOL

  6. I might have to try a cucumber sandwich.
    My hubby eats banana sandwiches.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
