Chats on The Farmhouse Porch
I hope you are all having nice days and all of your Christmas shopping is finished. All I have left to do is the baking. Okay onto this weeks questions:
1.What would you like to see under your Christmas tree?
This year is different, we have a new a new grand baby this Christmas and Nik will be spending his first Christmas with us. This year has been a challenging year for us. We have been so blessed though, because of the wonderful gifts God has given us. As we begin to close 2012 and make plans for 2013 I am reminded that the gift I want most under the tree, is that all who enter my home would feel like they have finally come home and they would feel love and acceptance and that the Holy Spirit would comfort them as they are welcomed into our arms. If there is one thing that I desire, it is that God would continue to fill me so that I will not grow weary and tired of doing good.
2.What is your best color for clothes?
Oh, I don't know anymore. Stuff that doesn't show stains. I spill things and drop things and get my clothes so dirty anymore. I can wear a white shirt about five minutes now before I spill coffee on it. I guess black.
3.Tell me your favorite kind of cookie.
My Sister in law makes for me every year, this kind called Reindeer food. It is just oatmeal and chocolate and peanut butter. You cook it on top of the stove and they are unbaked drop cookies. I love those things. I only have them when she brings them Christmas Eve. They are simple to make but I never do make them because I would eat them all by myself. I have to admit I have become a big fan of soft molasses cookies. I am crazy about molasses now.
4.What's in the middle of your dining table right now? (flowers, a lazy Susan with condiments, Christmas decorations...)
I have a snowman table runner and a ceramic snowman my husband's Grandmother made for me the first Christmas we were married. I think of it as my first Christmas decoration.
5.Please help me spread Christmas cheer to my buddy, Wendell. Please a wish for him here. :)
I hope you have a great year Wendall.
This week is just flying by. It does feel like Christmas though after not having cold weather last year. I am enjoying each day of cold, crisp weather.
Thank you so much Patrice for this week's questions
