Have you ever used a fire extinguisher?
No, thankfully there was never a reason for me to need a fire extinguisher.
What time do you eat dinner? And do you always sit around a table to eat?
Dinner is usually served somewhere between 5:30 and 6:00. And yes, we enjoy gathering around the table in the kitchen to eat. It's a time to relax, enjoy good food and conversation. I find it to be a nice way to start unwinding after a busy day.
What is your most meaningful heirloom?
After we got married LV's parents gave us the big clock that they had received when they took over the family farm. Since they were moving and we were taking over the farm, the clock now belonged to us with the instructions to someday pass it on to our youngest son.
We basically said good-bye to our chance of owning any other family heirlooms, because we left the Amish. That doesn't really bother me, but at the same time when I happen to see something I used to love that my parents or grandparents used to own I consider buying it.
I found a cookie jar at an antique shop just like the one we used to have when I was a little girl. I bought it and on my way out of the store the handle on the shopping bag broke spilling the cookie jar onto the floor and smashing it into hundreds of tiny pieces.
Chocolate or vanilla?
Chocolate. Preferably milk chocolate, but please no white chocolate.
