I guess Alee (and Nora!) and I started something a while back with sitting out on my porch. No, I don't have one yet, but it is my dream. The porch thing recently got picked back up in my post on needing to be flogged, and several others have since joined us. So, I thought I would offer an invitation to all you farmgirls to come sit and relax on my virtual porch, visit, and just let all your cares and worries slide off your shoulders. Anyone else want to join us? So far, we have Alee and Nora napping in rocking chairs; Melody June is the one who has her feet propped up and listening to Jolie Blond (some GREAT Cajun Music!); Audry brought that tray of the gorgeous cucumber sandwiches; Diane brought sweet tea and vodka; Toni brought apple and cherry pies and is sitting on the porch keeping the dogs down (and we made a pitcher of unsweet tea just for her, but I'll bet she'll share!) Ladies, all are welcome, and there are still plenty of rockers and porch swings left. And I'll bet Toni will move over a bit and let you share her step! Come join us! Hey, Alee! Wanna wake up long enough to get a bite of this cherry pie? Ooh! It is so delicious!

from the hearts of paradise...

Judy...Look at what we find out during a Virus Crisis...I didn't know Dave was a Jail Nurse. Sounds like there have been a few of
them around here. I'm glad Dave is a tough ex-Military dude. My Friend who was a male nurse in a Jail setting ... not so much!!
And he always seemed to get the raw end of the deal with the female nurses...he would get all caught up in their pettiness and back
stabbing. And he got let go from several places because of it. A really sweet and nice guy...but maybe too nice...if that is possible.
I was glad he had to retire when he came down with Parkinson Like Symptoms. He has been helped a lot with medication for it.
Turned out he didn't have Parkinson's.

Well, Ladies...all this staying at home in the rain is starting to depress me. I went to the Grocery Store yesterday at 8:30 am with all
us Senior shoppers and everyone was wearing masks and hospital gloves. I guess I'm just not that Paranoid. I don't do the mask
and glove stuff. I figure if I get it and die then it was my time to go. I have no fear of that. I'm not going one minute before God
wants me to go.

Well, have a great day and please find something you enjoy doing all by your lonesome. Judy, try NOT to Punch Dave out over
the Laundry. Just let him do his own...and if he messes it up...he messes it up. That is what Larry and I do. He does his own and
I do my own...because in the early days of our marriage he would shrink all our clothes while being Helpful while I was at work.
He is the man that throws all loads together and then washes it all on HOT! My boys weren't happy with pink underwear and I
wasn't happy with clothes that had been shrunk either. LOL So, Mama taught everyone how to do their own Laundry! And we
threatened Larry with death if he touched our stuff! LOL

Love, Hugs, and Prayers for Peace,
Peggy

WOW Peggy, what a mess just to get a burger! That's crazy!
Dave and I just about got into a Fist-Fight today over how to do the laundry. It sounds funny when I say it out loud, but will we survive this mess? I sure hope so! Hahaha
Dave loves his jail nursing job. Being a career X-Army dude, he can be a tough as he wants to be, nobody cares. Glad I don't have to watch him.
Try and Make it a great day gals...I Dare you! hahaha

Hello, My Porchies...

I finished another book last night while Diamond Painting then found out there were two more in the series...so, I ordered those also. The Books are
1. Bundle of Trouble 2. Motherhood is Murder and 3. Formula for Murder by Diana Orgain. It is about a young Mother who turns Private Investigator.
They sound real cutie pie but they weren't. Good Mystery.

I had been craving a Red Robin Guacamole Mushroom Burger for about a week...so yesterday, was payday and so I ordered one to be
delivered with Steak Fries and an Iced tea. Well, let's just say it was the most expensive burger and fries I have ever bought and it
wasn't near as good as the craving was. LOL I asked to have it just left at the door (with social distancing and all) and the driver Ahmar
couldn't find our Apartment...so, I ended up going out to find him. So, much for keeping your distance from people. LOL Let's just say,
it was all a craving fiasco.

The mail, Patsy seems to another fiasco. But all we can do is try right.

Darlene...I knew you had been a Nurse but I didn't know it was at the Jail. I have a good friend who is now retired but He was a male nurse
at a Jail too. He hated it!!

Okay, Ladies...I'm off for today!

Love, Hugs, and Joy,
Peggy

Laughing with Tammy about crocheting. I finally got good enough to recognize my mistakes but usually it was 3 rows back and I tore those suckers

out every time! LOL I wanted it perfect, ya know? Fun times though. Good luck.

Ya, Judy's Dave is a nurse in a jail and I fear for him sometimes.

Judy, never got that card. Now I'm wondering if it DID go to China.. It can stay there if it did. lol

Got a bunch of blankets and afghans out on the lines. Washed them and now they will smell so good!

Got a window open in every room in the house! 67 for today and light breeze n sun. Yup, I'm solar and my

batteries are charging. lol

Baked another bread pudding and some ginger snaps. Gave some cookies to my neighbor and she thinks I'm the best.. cause I give

her a dozen eggs now n then too. :) Makes me feel good to share. Have a good day gals.

Tammy and Darlene...We have all come close at times...but the Lord has saved us all. I refuse to do Bible Studies Remotely from Jail! LOL
And Tammy I agree with Darlene...those of us who are Retired have already had to deal with the "TOO MUCH TOGETHERNESS" already.
You will be glad to know that you will both survive it. Keep reading your Murder Mysteries and keep hubby guessing (or worrying) whichever.
It will keep him in line if he is sweating it a little bit. LOL
Tammy, we will gladly keep eating your baked goods. Keep them coming!!

I just finished a couple of good books: !. Forever Friends by Sara Mackenzie and 2.Traces of Guilt by Dee Henderson. I highly recommend
them both.

Keep Safe and walk when you can. It helps from getting bored keeps your mind clear and your body more fit.

Good morning ladies,
Just having some morning tea, listening to the birds sings and trying to figure out this remote learning thing. OUr school is officially as right now closed for the rest of the year. We are not allowed in the building except to get things we need for teaching and to leave packets for our students who need them. I am so sad I won't see my little butterflies and can I just say online learning sucks....Judy I may need some much needed wine for my ruffled wings lol

Peggy a friend and I are doing a remote bible study using facebook messenger or face time...and really my hubby school is off too and he may kill me being home. He of course is concerned I am reading murder mysteries lol told him that maybe he should behave. Lord help us if we survive this much time together...

I hope yall are doing well I hope you can eat some of my goodies cause baking is my new stress relief and I am trying to learn how to crochet...that is hilarious makes me laugh all the time

well ok I best get back to business
love and hugs
Tammy

Heather, poor Rudolph the red nosed cow! Cute but ouch!
My daffodils and some other yet to be identified are poking through!
Ugly yesterday, sunny today and supposed to be ugly tomorrow!
Peggy and Judy, you are good! Out getting your walks in. That's how we grew up. Out walking, riding our bikes playing games and doing errands. That's why I was skinny then. Walking everywhere.
I'm a homebody so the only thing I miss about not going out is going to Church and being with my Church family! We have online church. Pastor's teachings are always online.
Getting odds and ends done is a plus. I keep getting rid of things but somehow they continue to multiple! LoL!
Stay well and wash your hands!

Hi Gals, I sent Patsy a card last week and she hasn't seen it yet either.
Heather, that poor baby has such a red nose. Did he hurt it while he was out being boisterous? My crocuses and my snowdrops haven't made a showing yet. Not sure if the snowdrops will now... kinda late for them. Maybe the winter was just too mild for them.
Peg, I think we're seeing a lot of 'firsts' in our lifetime. I went out to the park and walked SonDay and there were lots of people out there, young, old, kiddos, dogs, bicycles... and it was only 48! Hahaha
BUT we were all so happy to be out of the house. After all, the SUN was out!!! weeeeeee...hahaha
People were laughing and gabbing away and everybody was friendly. It was just Wonderful!
Tammy, giiiirrl, sounds like Madam Butterfly needs a tiny tipple of nectar to calm her wings! Rofl
...you know... just round off those edges... hahaha
Well, I need to get the car out of the garage and give it a run. Been in there 2 weeks. Then I need to go to the store. ***aaccckkkk*** (do I have too)
Make it a Great day gals! Take care and be safe! I LOVE Yuns!
You're the Best Sista's!

Teacher Tammy...that sounds very frustrating!! Teaching that way has got to be about the worst way to try and educate a child. It is hard enough for an adult!! Plus there
is nothing better than hands-on, face to face, teaching. I miss my Bible Study Gals (as that is my classroom). My daughter in law said that she could set me up to teach
from home...but my heart just isn't into it. If this Corvid19 goes on too much longer I may change my mind though! I don't even enjoy cooking during this time. My
saving grace is long walks with my dog! Yesterday I did 5 miles and sat for a few minutes overlooking Vancouver Lake. It was so pretty! If I didn't get those walks in I
would be a basket case right now from cabin fever. ~ FEEL FREE TO COME VENT ANY TIME...You're not the only one going through frustrations....I am sure of it.

Enjoy, your day however you manage too. I Love Face-Timing with my Grands also. They are My Happy Place!!

Love, Hugs and Prayers,
Peggy

Happy Monday,
Just popping in...as I am enjoying tea and watching videos my butterflies send of their reading. They are so darn cute...just miss them to pieces. Online learning is hard. So far today my read aloud video won't upload and while I have class blog at wordpress they won't let me put up video because I am on free account...can I just say that burns my wings...I would like to cut their wings right off. so trying to stay connected with my kiddos...but about ready to give up if I can't find a platform.....sheez...ok done venting....yall have a muffin...did I say I bake in stress times...lol well so far i have baked brownines, cookies, and muffins....but my pups are happy we are home...so they are pretending to be my students...lol

cloudy rainy day here which fits my mood at the moment...ok I am off for now have a great day
love and blessings
Tammy

Denise...I hope it didn't get lost in the mail system. I know things are crazy right now but you wouldn't think letters and cards would be an issue. Maybe because some of you
are still having snow storms etc. But you should have gotten it by now. Let me know if it ever makes it to you!! I sent you one and also Jami as I received sweet cards and
messages from you both. The third person I am still working on, be glad you aren't her as I have been working on this one for a week. LOL

Patsy...I like the lights to Twinkle if I have them in a Jar or on a shelf...but if I had them strung up around a room...I would want them to just "GLOW-ON" softly. I agree, with you,
I miss going out to Stores and Restaurants. It is kind of depressing not being able to go anywhere besides the Grocery Store once a week. I do see my Neighbors from a
distance here in the Apartments but I quick Hi and By isn't cutting it for me. I am Thankful that I can FaceTime with my Kids and Grandkids...that is helpful. I would really go
bonkers if I couldn't seel their Sweet Faces and talk to them. I am getting a lot of Diamond Painting done and listening to my Audible Books. And when my husband is awake,
we watch TV together. He sleeps too much...I wish I could some days too! LOL. Usually, the Dog and I go for a Walk while hubby sleeps the day away! I need to walk today,
tomorrow and Thursday this week because the rest of the week is supposed to be rain!!

Heather...both very Sweet Pictures!! Thanks for sharing!!! Our State has been shut down for a couple of weeks already. The only time you see people is while out walking.
Other than that it is weird to see your City a Ghost Town. Grocery Stores are the only thing open. You can get Restuarant Deliveries at your door. I am about ready
to order a big Mushroom Burger from Red Robin. Sounds good!

Well, everyone stay Safe...but keep praying that this ends soon before we all get tired of our own company. LOL

Happy Sonday Ladies. Even our Churches are all closed down. That is a first!!

Love, Hugs, and Joy,
Peggy

Ohio is shutting down tomorrow at midnight. Luckily dairy is essential so we're still hard at it. Crazy times!!!!

Our St.Patty's day baby finally came this morning. A bull. I didn't get a picture of him with his mama cuz he was a bit too adventurous for his own good! He got out of the pen and was a mess. We had to bring him in the house to clean up and warm up.



Look what I found - despite the craziness mother nature keeps on keeping on


I have to get to work. Keep safe everyone!!

Peggy: No, they do not twinkle. I prefer the soft glow of my LED lights.

.. and I thought it strange that my Jim loved PB and salad dressing (Miracle Whip) sammies.. but to add lettuce? that's stretching it..

my mama loved onion sammies on buttered white bread... now I like tomatoes on buttered bread.

Since restaurants are closed, Jason brought me a mushroom swiss burger from Hardees drive thru. Was nice but I miss going out to the stores.

Schools may not open again this year and if people don't stay home I think the President is ready to shut down the nation.

Take care gal pals. Love ya all..

Patsy...thanks for the Bread Pudding. I haven't made that for about 3 years. It always reminds me of Home though!! My mom made it a lot when I was
a kid. The last time I made it...I did it in My Crockpot and it came out really good. My mom also loved making Pineapple Upside Down Cake in her
cast iron skillet too. ~ Speaking of those Old Fashioned Recipes...I remember that my dad loved Peanut Butter Sandwiches with Mayonnaise and
lettuce. Does anybody remember that one??? I thought it sounded gross until Dad convinced me to try it. It wasn't as bad as it sounded. But If I
wanted a snack I liked a butter and sugar sandwich. We really tried a lot of old fashioned foodstuff. I loved Peanut Butter/Banana/Honey Sandwiches
also. (Me and Elvis) LOL ~ I like the sounds of your Fairy lights Patsy. I can just envision them just being cozy and pretty. Do they Twinkle????

Hi Denise...Hope you got my card and Letter. I figured I should get some letters out while we are hunkered down. That and walking are on the TOP
of my daily To-Do List. You really should check out the Diamond Painting. Do you like to Color? If you don't...you probably wouldn't like Diamond
painting. Some people think coloring and diamond painting are tedious. I find it extremely relaxing I love to see the picture come together. 5D Diamond
Painting is my Favorite.

Another Beautiful Day here. I'm not sleeping well at night, so yesterday I tried walking in the Evening hoping it would help me sleep...but it did not.
I enjoyed the walk then, however. It was such a lovely evening. I was only going to walk about a mile and come home but I ended up going just
over 3 miles.

Well, My Porchies...have a Wonderful Weekend!!

Love, Hugs, And Joy,
Peggy

OOh, Patsy I'll take some bread pudding. Love that stuff. Prayers you are safe and sound through the storm.

Welcome ChikinsR4dinner! Hope you'll come back and visit more.

Been painting today. I have to look into that diamond painting Peggy. I keep meaning to.
Have also been working on some puzzles I received for Christmas.

Staying away from the news.

Peggy: I have a string of clear lights strung along the ceiling around my living room. So nice when I just want a lil light and not flood my eyes. lol

We are under a tornado watch till 11 pm. No wonder, its 73 here right now. Flash flood watch too. Got 3 eggs from my girls today.

Not listening to the news since it's the same yammer all day long.. made a bread pudding. want some?

WELCOME TO THE PORCH...CHIKINSR4DINNER!!! So, glad that you found us...and hope you will come back and share a little more
about yourself. This is a Great Group of Farmgirls here.

Teacher Tammy...I think our Schools will end up being canceled for the rest of the year too. Just because we our State has had so
many deaths and so many people come down with the Virus. I kind of feel sorry for all the Seniors both in High School and College
who are going to miss out on a lot of Fun and Cool Events...Like Graduation for one. But, I think everyone needs to be careful with
the Heal of the Older relatives. ~ Yes, my Bible Study is also canceled which is so sad. I am kind of thinking about doing it remotely
bit haven't decided yet. This is the first time in 30 years we have had to cancel. And we have always turned Bible Study into Crafting
and that will be out too it looks like.

Denise...I know what you mean about FB. I just keep passing over all the negative (I hear enough of that on the News) and enjoy the
jokes about it. I would rather laugh than get depressed any day. Like you, I joined FB to keep in even closer communication with my
kids and to steal all the cute pictures of my Grandkids...from their parents. LOL. Hang in there girl!! If people aren't complaining about
the Virus, they complain about politics and The President. That drives me more Insane than all the rest. I don't like the Drama either
and most people can be really mean.

Patsy...where do you have your Fairy Lights hung up at? I have some I rotate around at different Holidays And then I have some sea glass lights
in my Bedroom. I enjoy them too.

I am not much in the mood to Clean...though my Apt. wishes I would get with the Program. I have been doing the necessities only. And then I walk,
Diamond paint and do my computer stuff and then nap. My husband and I watch TV together in the Evening and I Facetime with my grandkids. And
that is pretty much my day. Other than running a few errands as needed.

Hope you all have a Lovely Day and Enjoy whatever you find to do that brings you Peace and Calmness.

Love, Hugs, and Joy,
Peggy

Hi all- Yes - I agree regarding FB...AND the news I am now forcing myself to only take in 30 minutes first thing in the morning! We are fortunate - DH and I both work in Atlanta, but have jobs where 'remoting' is possible, so we've retreated to the safety and peace of the farm 120 miles away (still have a house in Atlanta getting ready to see if anyone's interested! :) ). I'm spending a LOT more time at the computer right now, but so grateful to have my evenings to get things done. We've been moving here for 2 years, and so many little areas need to be cleaned up and organized - along with getting ahead of the blooming weeds, and starting the garden. SO excited - my first chickens arrive next week!

Grocery opens at 6am tomorrow - so going to leave at 530 hoping I can get in and out with recently stocked shelves and low contact (84 yo Mom lives with us!), and hit the dump on the way back. 8 am conference call after that!

So blessed to have found this farm, and this group. You all are wonderful, and I wish you all safety and great health!

D

Hello everyone,
Just taking a bit of break. My school is closed for two weeks but we were instructed to send all personal items hi e with our students. Mire than likely we will probably not have school, in the classroom for rest of year. We made packets and have remote learning for our students and every two weeks it will be reevaluated but our principal is on hospital board and said it is not likely we will be back in session. We can go to school but mjst be in classroom and our staff is at limit of ten. So tomorrow we help get packets out and then we work from home. I am sad to not see my butterflies we are small Christian school where distance ,earning is hard but we are finding ways to help them learn and making sure they have childcare and food.

YES Peggy no bible study until after Easter but we will see but I am doing my own quiet time.

Y'all stay healthy and have some cookies today I bake and read in times like these#128513;

Love and hugs
Tammy

I hear ya Denise. FaceBook was a way for me to stay connected to family too! But so many use it for venting family problems. I say KEEP it to yourself!

I blocked a lot of my own family for that very reason. Don't need drama. Just connections.

Rainy and dark here today. Fairy lights brighten my day and Jesus brightens my heart.

Love n prayers for you all. Take care, stay well.

Hi all,
Yes, it is crazy everywhere. I have been trying to stay off facebook. Then I decided I would just take the people off my feed who only share this virus stuff. It's what makes everything worse. I mean if I really want to know all that I can find the information all by myself without everyone posting their version or helpful hints. FB isn't fun anymore and I only got on to keep up with my family.
I don't know what's up with all the tp except maybe they are planing to resell or something. Who knows.
I went to grocery shop yesterday and the parking lot was full up so I decided if there were that many people in there I didn't want to go in. I went to Aldi's got what I needed and headed out. There was hardly anyone in there.

Judy,
I have read the Father Tim books by Jan Karon. I really enjoyed them. I also like Phillip Gulley's books too.

Patsy, Thanks for the reminder about the No Bakes. I have not made those in so long.
