Chats on the Farmhouse Porch 75

Everyday Ruralty

This week's questions:

  1. What's your favorite thing to have in hot cocoa/ hot chocolate?
  2. Did you have a white Christmas? Have you had snow since then?
  3. Have you been looking over seed catalogs? If this doesn't apply, what kind of catalogs do you like to leaf through?
  4. Gas stove or electric?
  5. What's new or interesting?

My Answers:

  1. Peppermint!  Candy cane, syrup  or schnapps! 
  2. No and no...  We have had lots of rain though!
  3. I don't really look at paper catalogs much anymore, mostly online stores.  I am trying not to look to much because I don't really "need" anything, but I do "want" things that I don't need.
  4. Gas stove top and electric oven.  I don't have hot spots with electric...
  5. It's very windy.  They are saying we are in for 40-50mph winds.  I can do without that.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to click on the picture and join in on the fun!


  1. butterscotch schnapps yum in hot chocolate!! hope the winds don't do any damage hold onto your hat for sure;]
    Be safe this week will be thinking of you.

  2. Peppermint is great in hot chocolate. Catalogs do tend to bring on a case of wants. Best avoided here.:) I originally wanted dual fuel, but a friend gave us a Viking when they remodeled and I ended up with just gas. No complaints from me, but there are hot spots in the oven. The convection eases that somewhat. Wind can get tiring. we had two weeks of no stop wind. My hair will never recover!

  3. I forgot all about peppermint in hot chocolate even though I love it. I hate when its windy here, I live on top of a big hill and it sounds like my whole trailer is blowing apart.
