Chats on the Farmhouse Porch 121

Everyday Ruralty
I'm so sorry I didn't get this post up on Tuesday,. I hope you are all well. Christmas is right around the corner. Are you ready? What do you have left to do? I'm almost ready. I have some wrapping left and some recipes to make. We had friends in for a cookie bake last night. It was a good time.
Wendell is no longer in the horsepital. He has regained his strength and health. He looks great. Thanks for the prayers and good wishes. When we let him out of his stall, into the pasture with the other horses, he raced around with them for almost a half an hour. He and the pony ran from one end of the land to the other. They had a great time chasing sheep. The sheep weren't too thrilled.
Next Tuesday is Christmas Eve, so I will not be posting a chat. Please enjoy the time with family and friends, or relax in some peace and quiet. I wish each and everyone of you a beautiful Christmas. God Bless you!
Patrice. Tell them about our Christmas card on the blog.
They'll see it Wendell. Don't worry.
Okay. I just want them to see the handsome horse.
Who would that be?
Oh, Patrice. You pain me! I hope you get coal and sticks in your Christmas stocking!
Christmas spirit, eh, buddy?
  1. What is your favorite way to have potatoes?
  2. Do you keep your house toasty warm or a bit cooler?
  3. What would you most like to see under the tree?
  4. Do you have an Elf on the Shelf?This one may not translate to other countries- Just tell us something you want if you don't know what I'm talking about.
  5. Have you put up a Christmas tree this year?
My answers:
  1. I love potatoes just about anyway, but it is a tie between a big baked potato with butter and sour cream, and steak fries.
  2. A bit cooler. Who can afford to keep it toasty warm? It is warmer near the pellet stove.
  3. Besides a million dollars, I would like a new camera, gift cards, and lots of chocolate. In reality, I'm happy to see things under tree for my daughters. I'm even more happy for the true reason for this celebration- Jesus!
  4. Not yet. There is one wrapped as a stocking stuffer for D4. He's sitting on a big white bell.
  5. Yes. We put one up every year. My girls put it up and decorated it. It's lovely!


  1. So glad to hear Wendell is doing better! Just wanted to wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas before I run off to work on my chatting! :)

  2. Potato lover here! Glad that Wendell is better now :)

  3. Loved the Chats this year Patrice. Merry Christmas to you and your family........and Wendell, of course!

  4. Happy to hear that the "pony" is doing better! ;) My own horse was under the weather last weekend into mid-week. It's never fun! And oh, potatoes. I have a love affair with them!

  5. I so enjoy reading these chats on other blogs that I decided to join in on the fun! Thanks for hosting :)

  6. Hooray for Wendell. It must have been a relief to see him run and play!
    Have a wonderful Christmas. How scary that it is so close. How awful that we all spend so many weeks fretting and fussing.

  7. Aww...I'm so glad Wendell is feeling better!! I can imagine him racing from one end of the field to the other! :)

  8. I'm glad Wendell is better for Christmas. He knew he had to get well so he could send his letter off to Santa requesting a big bag of carrots. I hope he was able to get letter out in time, if not, he may have to send it email. lol You and I both want a $1M. If you're like me, no matter how good of a girl you are THAT kind of present simply isn't going to show up under the Christmas tree. I won't be in Blogosphere all next week, so you have a very Merry Christmas! Oh yes, thanks for hosting!

  9. I'm answering your questions as we speak (as I type ... or whatever!). I'm so glad Wendell is out of the *horsepital* ... Patrice, you're so funny!! I'm guessing none of your snowmen have a carrot for a nose now that Wendell is out and about :)

    Thank you so much for all your chats over the year ... It's what's kept me blogging during my 'dry' seasons.

    Have a wonderful Christmas, y'all!

  10. I want to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas. May you be blessed with health, joy, peace, love and contentment.


  11. I'm sorry that Wendell has been sick. I hope that he has a complete recovery. I am glad that he is able to run and play again.

    I love potatoes most any way, too, especially steak fries and roasted potatoes.

    Did you get any of the things on your Christmas wish list? I hope so!

    Happy New Year!
