Soggy Chattin'

And Tuesday is a wrap! Except for one thing- a little chattin' it up on Patrice's porch. It's a soggy chat for us in the low-country of SC.

But it's NOT cold which I don't like at all. IF it was cold enough, the rain would turn to ice and we'd have to cancel school and I'd be able to stay home and enjoy the wet weather. But it's not. So we have school. AND, this morning, I had car duty. You know, where you stand outside and help all the car riders out of the car and cheerfully say, "Good Morning!" even though you are NOT a morning person? Yeah. And that's when I discovered that my jacket is NOT waterproof.

No matter now. It's time to chat with Patrice! And you don't need a jacket to join in the fun!

Everyday Ruralty

  1. Are you doing anything special for Valentine's Day? YES! I get to babysit our nephew's new baby. Remember the one that was born in November? All. To. Myself. That's right! I am NOT sharing him with the husband or any of the lovelies who may happen by because they know I'm babysitting him. WooHoo!
  2. When you attend something that isn't totally casual, are you likely to wear dress pants or a dress? Pants all the way- all the time.
  3. Do you use a regular toothbrush or one of the battery run kind? Regular one. The battery operated ones tend to make me lazy with my brushing as I let it do all the work. I also make sure my toothbrush is hard NOT soft. And my dentist can't understand why my gums are in such great condition. It's the toothbrush. Duh.
  4. Did you have valentines in school when you were a child? Yes. I wrote a post about that right here.
  5. If you could learn a new craft tomorrow, what would it be? Quilting. I really want to be able to do this but I do not have the time nor the patience. Oh, I don't have the eye for it either. Never mind. Maybe crocheting would be a better choice here. 
Ok, now it's your turn! Head over to Patrice's and share what's on your mind!


  1. Oh, you're going to have such a great time with that little guy!

    I'm with you on the toothbrush. I think they do a better job, too. But I also like the quiet of no loud buzzing in the morning. If I were a man, I'd never have an electric razor either.

  2. Aww what a great way to spend Valentine's day. Enjoy the sweet baby. :)

  3. "Hi. I'm the teacher with car duty today. My coat isn't waterproof and the weather isn't what I'd choose, so get your butt inside NOW! :P lol

    Have fun babysitting!I love little little ones. D2 learned to crochet from online tutorials. It's amazing how quick she picked it up.
    Happy Valentine's Day!

  4. Stephanie- I can hardly wait! I was so excited when they asked if I was available that I stumbled over my words. LOL

    softie-Right?! I'm so excited!

  5. Patrice- Well, that's almost what I wanted to say. LOL DoodleBug taught herself to crochet too. She's supposed to teach me but I think we'll wait until school it out. I cannot wait to babysit him! He's such a cutie!

  6. I dont remember the last time I said 'good' morning. Its usually just Morning!! I AM NOT a morning person!!!

  7. You made me laugh so much tonight!
    I bet you have great fun with that baby, lucky baby and parents.
    Sorry you didn't get a few days off for the rain, would be much better than standing in the car park in it. We don't have car duty here, but our govt. would probably bring it in if they heard of it so please don't tell them. They're always looking for ways to make us do more work, but for the same old pay, lol!

  8. p.s. I spent hours on Sunday on a fab quilting blog, can't rem the name of it now but her book is called Sunday Morning Quilts, i loved the name of it, even though I would never make a quilt, only buy one!

  9. I haven't held a baby in years LOL, I bet you'll have fun, fun, fun.

    Go pants! They're always my first choice.

    Hope you have a great Valentine's... which I know you will :)

  10. Deb- I'm not either. And I don't see this changing in the near future. LOL

    Mimi- I'll keep it quiet on the car duty because I know just what you mean about the powers that be finding more work for us for no more pay! Some things about education are, apparently, universal. LOL I'll have to share that book title with Birdie! Thanks!

    Clairity- Oh, I can't wait! It's going to be fantastic! And I'll take pictures so everyone can be really jealous. LOL

  11. Hi there from over here (sandy waves lol) I just dropped in to say hello.

    you are too funny about the cold weather. and yes someone sure turned on the faucet in the sky didn't they?

    enjoy your wonderful time with your nephew new baby on Valentine's Day!

  12. i agree with the issues of needing patience - good luck with that one too. enjoy your Valentine's Day. ( :


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!
