Chatting on the Deck

chatsonthefarmhouseporch
“Chats on the Farmhouse Porch” is a group of friends
gathering to visit,
sip their favorite beverages,
nibble delicious treats
and share their likes and dislikes.

Patrice and Wendell have invited me to join the chatting.
Patrice provides the questions,
we answer.

1.Are you enjoying spring?

I love watching the newness of spring: the  new leaves, the flowers, the longer days.

2.Where would you take Patrice for her birthday, if you could spend a day together. Wendell hopes you would bring her back!

We would spend the day at Monterey, CA at the beach.

Our route home would take us along San Fransisco Bay and we would watch the sunset

3.What’s your favorite spring flower?

Spring bulbs are my herald of spring!

4.What do you do when you are going through a really stressful time?

My first response is to want to run and hide; but I always come back the my foundation scripture:
Malachi 3:6 ‘For I am the Lord, I change not’.
It doesn’t matter how hard the storm, my Lord is always the refuge.

5.What kind of birthday cake would you get for Patrice? And Wendell?

for Patrice:   At our house the favorite birthday cake is simply a chocolate cake with white icing and candy multi-colored round sprinkles. We always have ‘bonilla’ ice cream with chocolate syrup ‘uppa top’ with it.
for Wendell: the Farmer has growing in the winter garden – carrots tender and fresh, tops and all.

Come chat with us at Patrice’s.
There’s an empty chair, or two.

  1. Sunset over San Francisco Bay ! I know that must be beautiful!

    • It was the cherry on top of a great day with my three daughters at Monterey Bay.

  2. I have always liked a chocolate cake with white frosting. Monterey looks lovely. My mom was from S. CA- San Diego. I have never been much further north than that.I like the scripture you wrote. I tend to pray when stressed. Have a great week!

    • Wendell is such a kick, what a fun way to add to your blog.
