Chats on the Farmhouse Porch ~ 75

I have decided to spend my Tuesday mornings with Patrice over at Everyday Ruralty and her "Chats on the Farmhouse Porch"

So. let me grab my mug of coffee, and here are this weeks questions and my answers

1. What's your favorite thing to have in hot cocoa/ hot chocolate?
I love hot chocolate, and recently I have discovered Hot White Chocolate, which is delicious without anything added. But, when I'm feeling really naughty, I will have whipped cream with grated chocolate on top
2. Did you have a white Christmas? Have you had snow since then?
Unfortunately no. It hasn't stopped raining for months and everywhere is a muddy mess. The last time we had snow was two years ago, and it was so pretty

The View from My Window
3. Have you been looking over seed catalogs? If this doesn't apply, what kind of catalogs do you like to leaf through?
I usually do, but I have a lot of wonderful changes happening this year, and so a vegetable garden is not possible. I will miss it this time

4. Gas stove or electric?

Electric, because this house dosn't have a gas supply. I much prefer gas, its more managable.. but what I would really like is...

5. What's new or interesting?

I have recently had my first grandchild, Harry. It was a wonderful Christmas present. He is such a blessing, even though I am far to young to be a grandma...smiles

The Best Christmas Gift Ever

    1. He certainly is the best gift ever..thank you Debbie x

  2. oh congrats on Harry's arrival stopping by from the chat new friend here following your so pretty blog :0
    that stove is quite grand and your view is like a postcard what a wonderful blessing to view. ~Janice~

    1. Thank you Janice, welcome to my world x

  3. I love your dream stove. Grandchildren are what makes life extra special. Its funny how much you can love them considering that I thought I couldn't love anyone more than my children but its just different with grandchildren. I've never had white hot chocolate, going to have to try that soon.

    1. You are so right ...I think Im going to enjoy being a grandma...smiles.. Oh, and enjoy the Hot White Chocolate x
