Chats on The Farmhouse Porch

I am going to join in the Farmhouse Chat today with Patrice. I am glad she posted questions this week.
I hope your week is off to a good start. Now onto this weeks questions:

1.    What's the last thing you baked?

I baked this wonderful creme filled coconut cake. My family isn't that wild about coconut but I am so I made it. They loved it so maybe now I have some converts to coconut.

2.    What's your favorite thing about fall?

Everything. The colors, the weather, the cooler weather. I love fall!

 3.   What's your favorite room in your home?

I know this will sound silly but I love all of the rooms of my house. Each room has it's own personality, I love how each room the sun shines in the widows with its own light. When I am in each one I like that one best.

4.    Who handles bill paying in your house?

My hubby, he has graphs and charts and projected things and keeps us on a budget and he has his spread sheets and I love that he does it all.

5.    Tell whatever you'd like to share with our chatting friends.

Yesterday was the craziest Monday yet, but we made it. I might have slid in side ways last night but it was a good Monday.
Please keep Amherst, Nova Scotia,  in your prayers and that they can get the fires out that started in the downtown buildings.

Thanks to Patrice for this weeks questions.

  1. I enjoyed reading this post.
    It's always fun to read the questions, and see what your answers are.
    Will keep your friend in my prayers too.

    Enjoy these last few days of summer.

    Smiles :)

  2. Could you email me the coconut cake recipe to beesplace31@gmail.com? I love coconut cake but cannot find a recipe that I like.

  3. That creme-filled coconut cake sounds so delicious! I'm praying for Amherst.

  4. The coconut cake sounds delicious!!

  5. Hope the rest of the week is calmer for you, Kim! And only 3 more days of August to go!
    I jest! I know you live each day with gladness!

  6. Oh yum! I love Coconut anything the cake sounds delicious.
    Crazzzy is my norm wish it wasn't at times! I can relate.
    Thanks for sharing!Prayers for Amherst, my grandmother was from Canada ~Blessings Kim

  7. Yummm...that creme filled coconut cake sounds good! I'd be the only one to eat it at our house, though, so it would be waaay to dangerous for me to make! :)

  8. Your basket of pumpkins is so cute! It's beginning to feel a little like fall here because the rain has cooled it off. I know it is just a tease, but I'm enjoying it anyway!

  9. Fun post...always enjoy your new headers..coconut cakes sounds wonderful...fall is in the air around here and school off to a good start
    Have a great week

  10. oh, dear. the fires sound dreadful. i haven't caught up on news yet today..

  11. Hi Kim,

    Your header is darling! I'm sure enough in the mood for fall now!

    I'm like you....I'm not sure I could pick a favorite room because I like different ones because they each have their own personality.

    I had no idea someone had Chats on the Farmhouse Porch. I'm glad it's a little different from Sunporch Chats (I would hate to think they thought I got the idea there)! lol! Is this open for anyone to join in? That's kind of neat! And is it different questions every week?

    Have a great day!

  12. I could use a big slab of coconut cake right now :). Kim, thank you so much for mentioning Amherst in your post. I think the prayers worked, as miraculously there were no major injuries. Now we focus forward.
    Hugs, Kim

  13. I love your answers Kim but I think that I also would love a slice of your Coconut Cake... I love coconut right off the shell too.

    So sad about the big fire in Amherst N.S.

    Have a nice week. Hugs, JB

  14. Would you slice me a piece of coconut cake? I need some!
    I am praying for some cool weather for you so the hens will lay some bright eggs!

  15. Keeping the people in Amherst Nova Scotia in my thoughts and prayers. Coconut cake, yummy! Blessings, Julie.

  16. Oh, I didn't know about Nova Scotia :(

    I *love* the sound of the coconut cake ... yummy :)

  17. I love coconut. I LOVE fall. I hadn't heard about Nova Scotia. There are always so many things that need prayer. Thanks for being there last night.

  18. ps- I wouldn't mind the coconut cake recipe either. Please send it to me at patrice@everydayruralty.com if you get a chance. :):):)

  19. One thing that painting the bookcases the same color as the walls did (besides make my life miserable because I now have to paint the walls) was brighten things up. It looks so much better in here now. Does you hubby use a program or is he just really good at budgets, etc.? We're looking for something to get us on track.


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