Chats on the Farmhouse Porch 69

Everyday Ruralty
Welcome to the porch! Today was cool and very bright. Wendell was sunning himself on a hill in his pasture. We were getting our turkeys ready for market. I can't believe Thanksgiving is just two days away. It's one of my favorite times of year.

  1. What's the last thing you baked?
  2. What's your favorite condiment?
  3. Do you have a smart phone, dumb phone, or no phone(we're talking about cell phones)?
  4. Do you have a favorite card game?
  5. Tell me ten things you're thankful for - please:)
My answers:
1. I baked Pumpkin cranberry bars with cream cheese frosting for our volunteers who helped us with our turkeys today.
2. I've always been fond of ketchup. Just ask my fries. They're requesting scuba gear since I like to drown them! Did I tell you I like ketchup on my fries?
3. dumb phone
4. I love the game Canasta. My grandmother taught it to everyone in my family. She was really good at it and taught us lots of ways to be clever when playing. I taught them to my own family, so they're hard to beat. It's more fun when it's challenging.
5. -Jesus
    -My family
    -Our farm
    -Our animals
    -Good food
    -Our church
    -Books- both the ones I read and the ones I write
    -Each new day

  3. I love, love, love your THANKful list. One thing I've very grateful is precious blogging friends that feel like we've known each other forever, yet we've never met. Those we can e-mail and share our concerns and prayer requests with. People like you, Sweet Lady!!! HOPE you have a blessed THANKSgiving!!! In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine, too....Deb

    I have never ran across your blog before but will begin following when I get home and am on a computer!

  9. Wendell, you haven't tasted carrots until you taste our home-grown ones... there's no way American soil is as good as Scottish soil for growing 'em ;)

    Missing our chat ... enjoying reading your answers though :)

  10. I made a pan of chocolate chip cookie bars. I make one pan of these each week, for snacks/lunch boxes. I have a smart phone and rather like it! I totally have a card playing disability. No joke. Has never appealed to me. I am so thankful for my farm and family. As a child I always wanted to come here and live. And, I got my wish.

  11. I would love the recipe to your pumpkin cranberry bars :oP They sound de-lish. I love your Thankful List too, especially your #1...He's my #1 Guy too :o) Have a blessed Thanksgiving & Thank You for the chat.

  12. I'd love to learn how to play Canasta! I also have no clue what Bridge is or how to play but I think it would be fun. I wish we could get together and have a Card Party! They are so much fun :)


  13. Those pumpkin cranberry bars sound yummy - I wish I wasn't allergic to berries. Maybe I can make them with carrots instead, and share them with Wendell!

    Have a lovely and blessed Thanksgiving Patrice. May the Lord fill your home with laughter and joy.
