Meet me on Monday, the 12 th

Meet me on Monday, 12th edition

Time to get to know each other better, one Monday at a time. Link up to Java here to meet more bloggers and to answer her questions of the week.
We had an awesome answer to prayer last night. The spring rain came before spring even started. Whoever has been reading my blog for a while knows that we were in a drought for the last 2 years, so we are hoping that this will be the start of a wetter (do you say it that way?) spring and summer. Then maybe we can harvest a crop around Easter next year. The best sound to a ChaqueƱo's (person living in the dry Chaco) ears is the sound of rain on the tin roofs and the distant thunder coming closer. The second best sound to my ears is to hear the tractors in the village starting up this morning to plow the orchards. Thank you Lord!


1. What is your favorite kind of potato chip?

I never met a potato chip I didn’t like, but because we can’t get Salt & Vinegar chips here, I’m craving those the most.
My sis J brought these chips in her suitcase all the way from Canada!

2. Do you make your bed every day?

Um, do you really have to ask this? My kids or my mom might be reading… I make our bed almost every day!

3. How often do you go to the hair salon?

That reminds me to make an appointment for this week; I usually get my hair cut every 2 – 3 months.

4. What do you dip your French fries in?


5. Do you shop with coupons?

No, our stores don’t have coupons here. But I won an iron (as to iron clothes with) in a contest in our supermarket the other day!

 I hope you have all read my post from yesterday, explaining my heritage. I'm working on part 2, so check in again soon. Love, Brenda, aka the Chacogirl!


  1. Hi! I am a new blogger and am following you via Meet Me on Monday; I hope you will follow me back. I enjoyed browsing your blog; have a great day.

  2. Yeah! for the rain! May the next one come in time to beat this drought!

    Lot's of love, I'll eat some salt and vinegar chips for you!


  3. I think I cut my hair once a year haha.

    I also use ketchup for fries if they are plain but I don't like them plain unless they are homemade.... I usually just substitute for poutine if I'm eating out.

  4. I believe that here in the UK we are lucky (or unlucky depending on if you think about the additives) to have a very large variety of flavours of crisps. Some are very silly.


  5. Hi,
    Thank-you for stopping by my blog.
    Yeah Ketchup.
    Have a wonderful week.

  6. Really? No coupons? Although its probably much easier!

    Haha about making the bed! I'm just weird like that! Gotta have it made every day!

    Yeah for the rain!! I'll pray for more for you!


Please leave your name when you comment! I'd love to hear from you!
