Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
It's a lovely day out, perfect for sitting on the porch with our friends Patrice and Wendell over at Everyday Ruralty. Grab a cup of coffee and join us!
1. What's your favorite kind of sandwich?
I like the Subway Club. It has turkey, roast beef and black forest ham, with anything else on it that I happen to like which would be tons of veggies.
2. Do you have more photos or artwork on the walls of your home?
I think I have an almost equal amount of pictures and artwork on the walls. I have more photos on tables than on the walls, but I do have a few pictures on the walls, all of them pictures of my kids.
3. Do you switch your wardrobe(clothing) when the seasons change?
No, because in South Florida the seasons don't really change. I have one jacket that I've had for years, which I wear maybe 3 times a year. I have several sweaters and long sleeve shirts that don't get worn often either. For the most part I can wear the same things all year long.
4. How do you keep your recipes: books, cards, computer?
I have 2 recipe books, one that I use when I print recipes off the computer, and one that I print recipes on fancy paper because it's pretty. I do have a few cookbooks as well.
5. What are you looking forward to the most in the month of September?
Less humidity so that I can do some work in the yard. It's been too hot this summer to do anything outside.
I'm first and foremost a Bible believing Christian. I'm a mother of 3, learning to deal with the changes God is doing in my life, learning to lean on Him and trust Him even when I don't understand, and learning to accept the changes He sees fit to accomplish His purpose in my life.
"I can't imagine anything more terrible than getting to the end of my life only to discover that God had so much more in mind for me - more freedom, more joy, more peace, more true effectiveness. And I had missed it all, simply because I refused to change." - Joanna Weaver, Having a Mary Spirit.
"In every change He faithful will remain." - Katharina von Schlegel
"Nothing paralyzes our lives like the attitude that things can never change. We need to remind ourselves that God can change things. Outlook determines outcome. If we see only the problems, we will be defeated; but if we see the possibilities in the problems, we can have victory." - Warren Wiersbe
