Chatting on the Deck

“Chats on the Farmhouse Porch” is a group of friends
gathering to visit,
sip their favorite beverages,
nibble delicious treats
and share their likes and dislikes.

Patrice and Wendell have invited me to join the chatting.
Patrice provides the questions,
we answer.

What did you do for Easter?

My day was blest, but low key.
Easter morning worship service,
Lunch with youngest daughter at Garcia’s,
a little time on the computer, some knitting, a nap
and attended the evening Easter program presented by the Young Married class.
The young children sang so cute, much singing and a pantomime skit.

My heart is full of thanks.

How bad were you with candy or treats? (On a scale of 1-10. 1 being good, 10 being sugared up)

I was a 1 – shock —   no candy on Easter, but I did pick up a bag of marked down almond M&M’s on Monday. It’s almost empty.

What’s one of the first things you’d like to do when you have consistent spring temperatures?

I love to sit on my deck wrapped in a shawl for my devotions and then knit a while.

How are you at gift buying?

My favorite gift is one I have made, either a quilt or a knitted/crocheted item
Mar 12 granny square 003This is the beginnings of new little girl’s afghan, don’t you love granny squares, I do.

Do you have an projects in mind for the month of April?

I’m hoping to finish the baby afghan, Shirley’s Shawl and Deanna’s quilt this month.
I hope I don’t cast on any thing new,
no, I don’t hope that at all,

but I do hope to stay focused on these three projects.

April 3, Today’s thought – Last Words

April 3, seeing greenOh, Look! We’re seeing green!

Good Morning

Mark, chapter 14 begins the account
of the betrayal and crucifixion of Christ.

What were Christ’s last words in Mark 13?

And Jesus answering them began to say,

Take heed lest any man deceive you:
But of that day and that hour knoweth no man,
no, not the angels which are in heaven,
neither the Son, but the Father.
Take ye heed, watch and pray:
for ye know not when the time is.
For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey,
who left his house, and gave authority to his servants,
and to every man his work,
and commanded the porter to watch.
Watch ye therefore:
for ye know not when the master of the house cometh,
at even,
or at midnight,
or at the cockcrowing,
or in the morning:
Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
And what I say unto you I say unto all,
Watch.

Mark 13:5, 32-37

Watch with me . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
