Chats on The Farm House Porch

It is time to visit with Patrice again on her porch. You won't need a sweater on my porch today. It is already warm. She has some very nice pictures today. I really like the gift her friend brought her back from Holland.

She did her answers with pictures, I thought that was a nice idea.

1.What do your everyday dishes look like?

2.What shoes are you likely to throw on in a pinch right now? "Go to" shoes.
I wear theses shoes the most. I just came in from working in the garden.

 3.What's the last gift you were given?

4. The first face you saw this morning was-------------------.

Even though it was dark. This is the dearest face I know:

 The others in this picture are pretty nice but I was talking about my hubby. :)

5.What cup or mug are you most likely to grab for your tea or coffee? What's your "cuppa"cup?

 My favorite cup. I use if for coffee, but if I am having hot tea it is a different one. I drink more coffee.

Thanks Patrice for this weeks questions. Thank you for your lovely offer to load up your truck with pullets and bring them out to me. I am over it really. I think it is best for now. :) I can keep my bathroom in the garage a bathroom/craft room instead of a chick house.

Have a great week!


  1. I love all your answers and appreciate the pictures. I'm glad that you are over the disappointment of not getting your chicks.
    Hugs, JB

  2. I read that book. I cried my eyes out during the first chapter. It was a good book. I like your dishes. I am so into blue and white! That's a nice face to see. He has such a pleasant face and a warm smile. Much better than waking up to my German Shepherd. My early bird hubby had gotten up WAY before me.Being decadent and sleeping in for me is 7am. Have a great week!

  3. Great answers!
    I love the answer about your hubby's face; I miss mine so much.
    I have got to read that book!! It sounds wonderful!
    Have a great week!

  4. Fun answers...great pic of hubby, wonderful and fun cup, how cheerful...and love the dishes! I haven't read the book, don't know when I will get around to it, but heard others enjoyed it.
    Have a great day,

  5. What a nice way to answer the questions...with pictures! :)

  6. Really enjoyed visiting on the porch today and being able to 'see' everything!
    Blessings for a lovely week!

  7. That book certainly is getting a lot of attention. It is on my to read list. Hope that you have a good day.

  8. Oh, my candy cane coffee cup! Hubby used it and broke it...I could flog him!

  9. I love that book. I read it earlier in the spring. I need to re-read it. Then, I read another book about gratitude and was working a daily program before life took me on a twist. I've gotta get back to it! I have favorite mugs for coffee and tea too!

  10. This is a fun chat. Like the pictures with the answers. I was too lazy tonight to take the pictures so I'll skip this weeks chat.

  11. Kim, I so enjoyed my visit. Lovely photo of your dear husband and family. I chuckled at your "garden" shoes, mine are old beat up knock off crocs, I just cannot bear to throw them away. I am so sorry about the Silkies, is there another breed you could try? How about Buttercups or Frizzles? Those are two breeds I would like to try, however, I do believe it is to cold for them during Maine winters. Just a thought. Sending greetings from cold wet Maine, Julie.

  12. One of my friends has the blue heart dishes! Love them.

  13. Stopping by from Everyday Ruralty. Love looking at other's pics to go along with their answers!!! HOPE you have a great day!

  14. What a fun post!
    Getting to know you a bit better...and the pictures are great!

    Love those shoes :)

    So nice to wake up to a sweet and loving man.

    I enjoyed my visit here today .

    Warm wishes..

  15. I love blue and white ... in fact, my dishes are blue and white, too. Hubby is grumbling about getting rid of them (they're starting to show their age), but I refuse to! ;-)

  16. i heart those plates and the hubs has an adorable smile!!

  17. How ironic that your last gift was "A Thousand Gifts"!

    Here's my chat:


  18. Your plates are so pretty. I'm not surprised you have plates with a heart on them! I've got to start wearing closed shoes in the garden. I felt something on my foot yesterday and nearly had a stroke. It was a leaf. Good grief. Oh-I want that mug! :)

  19. your coffee mug is soo cute :o) I miss my morning coffee :o(


Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
Think of this as coming onto my porch and having
a visit.
