Chats on the Farmhouse Porch


It's time to join Patrice and Wendell on the front porch for our weekly chats.  Stop on over at Everyday Ruralty and join us.


1. What's the last thing you baked?
I baked pork chops yesterday.  As for sweets, I baked some brownies not too long ago.  I'm looking forward to fall and less humidity so I can bake more often.

2. What's your favorite thing about fall?
Just about everything!  I love the colors of fall, I love how the humidity subsides and the weather becomes more pleasant, I love pumpkins and apples and baking, I love Thanksgiving and Christmas shortly afterwards.  It's my favorite season.

3. What's your favorite room in your home?
That's actually a tough question.  I like my house.  Quite a bit.  If I had to pick a favorite, right now it would be the living room.  My recliners are there, and they are my favorite chairs.

4. Who handles bill paying in your house?
That would be me.  It's always been me.  Having studied bookkeeping and enjoying organization, it was the logical choice.

5. Tell whatever you'd like to share with our chatting friends.
I'm very thankful that tropical storm Isaac is gone from South Florida, and although my yard was flooding for awhile, I'm thankful the waters have receded and my yard doesn't have a lake in it anymore.  I'm thankful for everyone that said a prayer for our safety.  It's nice to know we're loved :).

So happy for you that Isaac didn't hit you too hard. We were watching it closely here in my part of Texas. I was a bookkeeper too, worked 25+ years at our local bank. Enjoyed my visit, I'll see you again soon!!

I'm glad that you are unharmed by the storm. I'm sure bill paying isn't anything for you with your work background. I'm anything but a bookkeeper! Some days I think zookeeper would be more like it! Have a good rest of the week!

Glad that Isaac wasn't too hard on you. I have been watching him on the news praying for everyone involved. I can't imagine being a bookkeeper, I hate math and choose my degree on what had the least amount of math :)
