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...

Would def love some snow! Just have cold here so far.. few spits of snow.

PG Tammy: How far is Minot from you? My youngest son is doing his last 4 years of air force there with his family. That's quite a jolt in temp after moving from

mid CA! They just got there before Thanksgiving. He's been sharing pics of snow and vids too. Love it. They can have the temps though.. lol

Listening to Christmas music daily all day long.. love it! Better than a quiet house. Right?


Well, house is decorated, cards are done and baking begins.

Going to Ohio on the 18th to spend time with my Sis and other family. Taking 1 day to bake cookies. Can't wait!

Lori...Oh, my you have had a rough go of it, haven't you? I am sorry that you had to put your dog down and then all that other calamity hit...besides. It was probably just as well you stayed
home and rested. Sometimes, it feels like you'd like to stay in bed for a year with the covers over your head for protection. Like...What you can't see won't hurt you!" But then life just passes
you by even faster, so that's no good either. Let's pray that everyone has a better 2020. This past year had some real bummer rough spots in the road for most everyone I know. At least
no one person should feel picked on by Life!

Praire Tammy...my goodness girl, it is a good thing I see you on FB. Or I would have thought you dropped off the face of the world by now. lol. Look at that Grandson of yours...Oh, my good-
ness he is getting to look like a big boy and that haircut is so adorable! I bet you had a great time with him. That was one long Road Trip even for an adult! My rear-end hurts just thinking
about that long of a drive. I bet your mama was Happy to see you all though!! ~ I'm glad you have the snow and we don't!! We just have 7 days of rain in the forecast...our usual!! LOL

Well, girls I need to keep movin tonight as tomorrow will be another busy day and evening.

Love and Hugs,
Peggy

Greetings Friends! I've missed you!!! I think the only reason PeggyAnn hasn't been after me with the posse is she's on my FB page LOL

I hope everybody had an awesome Thanksgiving. Lori - sorry yours didn't go well but thankfully everybody is okay. Benny and I took the lil dude (my 4-yo grandson) to Indiana with us for the holiday. He was a great sport and did really well for driving nearly 1000 miles each way plus all the driving we did while there. I got his hair cut after we got there since Jordon didn't listen to me and have it done before I picked him up. Isn't he the cutest LOL Okay, okay, I'm a prejudiced grandma LOL Actually my mom was pretty impressed with him too. She couldn't believe all the stuff he built with his legos. He's into robots right now so everything is a robot or a transformer, which he's also into.



Who would like some snow? I'm done with this stuff already! We got between 3 and 4" yesterday afternoon/evening. We started having problems with the furnace at the house while we were gone so Benny's been over there trying to figure out what's wrong with it. Now he thinks he needs a motherboard for it but the furnace was made in Canada so he may have to drive to Canada to get the part. Thankfully he has all the thermostats in our place, the shop and the house wireless so he can monitor if any problems are starting. Our place is getting way too techie for me LOL

Hopefully, I can start getting back on here again.

Hello friends, Peggy, you had me laughing with your story about the t.v. stand. How funny. I wish I had been a fly on the wall so I could have seen it. Thank God you do have a sense of humor with all the other stuff going on.
Shannon, I just hate it when the plumbing acts up. That has happened to me before and it is a headache and a half. Hope all is going ok for you now.
I finally have all of my Christmas decorations up and am enjoying the beauty of them. It has been such a stressful couple of months. Two weeks ago our crew was coming home from a tree job and an elderly man had stopped at the stop sign and then just drove right into the side of our pickup. We had a large trailer load of wood on it and the truck went into the ditch. Thank God no one was hurt. Our truck and trailer are totaled and work had to come to a stand still for a few days. Two days ago we had to have our older dog, Harley, put to sleep. It was so sad to let him go but it was time. We did nothing for Thanksgiving but stay home and rest. No company and we went nowhere. Yesterday the transmission went out on our bucket truck. When it rains, it pours. Still, God has been good to us. Even with all that is going on, I believe that everything is going to be fine.
I have been watching Christmas shows on the Hallmark channel and enjoying the season.

Peggy,
I just got a great deal on a new tv stand. You would have been laughing watching me put it together. My granddaughter was here and was helping me lift the pieces and when all was done she was sweet enough to help me off the floor. I'm sure she was giggling on the inside.

Well, My Porchies...I got a super wonderful blessing last night! Shane and Sadie and the kids came over last night at about 8:00. And Between the two of them (Shane doing the heavy stuff) They put together
hubbies TV Stand. And I got to play with the kids (I got the hard work!! ROFLOL) Then they got the New TV set up! The Old TV back to my hubbies room and my little tv back into the dining room. All that took
them about 3 hours. Then I watched the kids while they ran to Kohl's to get Shane a new outfit to wear to Court this morning...to testify as a witness. They got back here at Midnight and the little ones and
I were playing a game I invented with Alexa...we would ask her to play songs with food titles (that we were making up) and I would say about 90 percent of the time someone had written a song about it...the 3
of us laughed so hard by the time mommy and daddy got back we could hardly stop laughing. The kids had never stayed up until midnight before and they thought it was pretty cool...but I am sure that
mom and dad had a very hard time getting them up for school this morning. And daddy had to be in Court at 8:30. When the kids left...our place last night they were yelling, "Bye Grandma, we love you and we
had a really fun time!!! Me too!! Then once they left Larry and I stayed up and watched the TV for a while. Even I am impressed with his Christmas Present from me!! I'm not sure what it is with men and
their big TV's but he is Happy and that is all that matters to me. LOL And I can't wait to what a Hallmark Channel Movie on this IMax Screen! ROFLOL Another funny thing is, Snickers barks at animals on
TV...so now they are closer to him because of the new TV stand being lower the dogs, cats, horses etc seem closer to him and he was having a barking fest last night at 12:30 in the morning which I am sure
made the neighbors happy!

Shannon...I am so sorry for your plumbing problems...not fun at all girl!! I bet you are really busy this time of year too. Next week is the killer week for me. Tuesday Night is the Christmas Birthday Party,
Thursday Night is Savannah's 4th Birthday (we do a family dinner on their actual birthday) and then Sat. morning at Sky Zone is her Party with her friends!! Which both Grandma's have to be there too.
Which I wouldn't miss it for the World!!

Patsy are you use to the quiet yet??? If we lived closer I would come sing Christmas Carols at your door for you! On second thought...I'm sure the quiet would be a better choice for you!! LOL

Okay, my pretties...have a Blessed Day,
Peggy

Patsy - oh I bet your house is super quiet, which for me is always a blessing and a curse. I am always glad to have my house "back" but miss my loved ones at the same time!

Peggy - (((hugs))). I would have been laughing and crying right with you! Last night must have been the night of plumbing issues... Our sewer backed into our basement again last night. Then this morning it was fine! I am guessing something was frozen! So glad it is just a quick virus! I know the flu is already making its rounds in our area. o.O

This last few days have been super busy here! I've been doing school with the kids, working on their 4H stuff, and regular house stuff. Hubby is trying to get his truck fixed. There are days I hate that thing! It is never reliable and seems to be always breaking down! We have spent more on this truck than it is worth, though God always provides :). Tonight I need too go grocery shopping. I'll do that while the older kiddos are in youth group at church :)

Hello, My Porchies...

Oh, let me tell you...I have officially decided I am really as old as my Birthday says I am. Last night I tried putting my hubby's TV Stand together. I have always been the one who does
all that sort of stuff. Well, after 10 minutes of working on it...my husband says, "Let me try!" (I never like to hear those words) but then it took me another 10 minutes to get up off
the floor! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry...but I finally made it up! So, hubby gets down there and as I knew he couldn't figure it out either...but it took him longer to get up
off the floor than it did me. (Laugh or cry???...Laugh or cry???). I try to help him up, he tries to break the back off the dining room chair and finally decides to crawl into the living room
and get himself into his Lift Chair. By this time, I am holding in the giggles. Finally, he is up and we look at each other and say, "OK, we are going to have to pay someone to put
this together for us!" Again, the Gift that keeps on costing me! 5 years ago, I could have done this easily!! And it makes me mad that now I can't...but I'm still laughing with tears
running down my face...Or maybe I'm crying, I'm not sure which by this point! For you young'uns on here...YOU HAVE MY PERMISSION TO NOT GROW OLD!! It is a downhill
slide and you just hope you are in one piece when you hit the bottom of the hill. LOL

To top that off...Larry has a Dr. Appt today and last night he is washing clothes, needs a shower, and I need to run the dishwater and a Main Water Pipe broke in the complex across
from ours and now we have NO WATER. BUT Praise The Lord...I am happy to say that when I woke up this morning it was fixed. Of course, when I took the dog out this morning
our parking lot is a sheet of ice from the water gushing everywhere last night. If it wasn't so funny I could cry...but God is keeping my sense of humor intact...which is a very good
thing.

I got my Apartment and Hallway all decorated except for the Tree and at this speed, it may never see the light of day. But hopefully, I will work it into my schedule somehow; if NOT
so be it! I can't let the little things bother me.

Elijah is fine Shannon...he got a virus and then shared it with Savannah. It only lasted a couple of days for both of them! Now lets pray that Shane, Sadie and Grandma Patti don't
come down with it!

I best get finished with my computer stuff...as I need to head to the store in a few minutes.

Keep a smile on your face, a song in your heart, and a good sense of humor if you plan to make it through the Christmas Season unscathed!!!

Blessings and Joy,
Peggy

Happy December all!

The last of my family left yesterday. Man! Was the house quiet! Lots of good food and good memories made.

Denise: It takes 6 hours to drive from here in KY to Ohio.

Got all my Fall stuff down and ready to put up Christmas! I ran out of steam with all the cooking and baking I did with my son. So I took today off and puttered.

So tomorrow I will start doing something maybe.. lol Need to get some cards out.. is it REALLY that time already??

Wait... it's gonna be 2020 already? Really? Stop shoving me... lol

Good morning my dear Porchies <3. Hoping all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a quiet day at home, which was lovely, except my dad went the ER and was admitted to the hospital with pneumonia. I'm trying to start getting ready for Christmas. I have not even begun sewing yet O.o

Denise - I am so sorry for your loss! Praying for your family!!! The holidays will be hard, for sure!

Lori - praying for you as well. What a trying time you have been experiencing!

Peggy - so sorry to hear about Elijah. Hopefully it is nothing too serious, and he feels better soon!

TL Tammy - thank you for the cake! I certainly do not need any calories right now! And Happiest Birthday <3

Alrighty - I need to get back to cleaning. I have been deep cleaning my kitchen... still need to finish my spice cabinet and my pantry, and then it will be done. Wooohoooooooo

Peggy, Get headphones for your TV's, that's what Dave and I did. He watches war shows that would curl your hair(how can ex-army
People stand to watch all that blood... when they saw it for real in battle!? Never ceases to amaze me. So I bought him his first pair and he's used headphones ever since. Saves on my nerves.I had headphones until they died, now I just use ear buds that have a piece that hang over my ear... nice and light. Usually I only need to wear one because they really are loud. If the show is softer then I wear two.
Are you allowed to hang TV's on the wall? Saves so much room!
OK, I need a hot cuppa now, since y'all keep mentioning it. hahaha

Another Lovely but Freezing Day Outside My Porchies...

Elijah came down with a virus and mom and dad had him in the ER all afternoon yesterday. So, our plans to go to the Craft Fair and Tree Lighting didn't happen. But all was
not lost as I got all my Christmas decor put up except the Tree!! It just might have to wait until we see how much room we will need for hubby's TV and TV Stand. LOL
Who knows...maybe the Tree won't get put up again this year. I just casn't push myself so much anymore. I will be good no matter what!!

Lori...sorry to hear about your vehicle and your older dog having to get put down. That is always a sad time. I am praying for you guys.

Denise...I need to make myself a cup of coffee...and will do so shortly. Maybe it will wake me up. My Energy drink didn't seem to work...so I'm going for the caffeine!! lol

I Hope everyone has a Great Weekend...and who can believe that tomorrow is Dec. 1st????? Just Breathe Ladies...

Love, Hugs and Christmas Joy,
Peggy

Lori praying you find something. I know insurance never covers enough to get as good as you have. we have had our truck and trailer hit before but never totaled. We have always been able to get it repaired. Both truck and trailer are so expensive, maybe a good used. Even those don't come cheap.

Sitting here enjoying the morning quietness and my first cup of the day. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

So glad to hear that you all had a great Thanksgiving. Seems like it is so hard to get with the kids as everyone has different schedules. Randy and I spent our day together and relaxed. We have had so much happen lately that we just didn't feel like cooking a big dinner or having anyone over. We called all the kids and talked to them and took a drive together. The pickup and trailer we use for work was hit by an elderly gentleman and totaled. No one was hurt, thank God. We have been looking for a new one but the prices are so high. Today we had to take our old dog, Harley to the vet to be put to sleep. He was suffering so much and we just couldn't let that go on.
On a good note, the sun will rise again and life will go on. We will keep looking for a truck and do the best we can with the equipment we have until we find one. We are still so blessed.

Sounds like you got a good deal anyway Peggy. But yes those unexpected costs. When our daughter bought her new tv they gave their old one. Our big one had dies so we used the smaller one we had from my dad. So when they got theirs they came over and hooked up their old one for us. I already had the stand but I really want to get a different one. This is a glass top and I'm always afraid it is going to get broken or chipped. I'd rather have a good old wooden one.
Laundry is almost done and I have started pulling in the fall stuff but I've been doing my shopping online and have gotten distracted with that. LOL

Hello My Beautiful Porchies...We had a Wonderful Thanksgiving!! Great Food, Lovely atmosphere and Fabulous Company! No time like Family Time!! We had Larry's oldest sister with us too this year
which was just lovely. She is the same age as my mom would be if she was still alive! She enjoyed her great-niece & nephew though I could tell she couldn't hear them half the time. She needs
hearing aids but...doesn't have them.

After we took Mary home (she lives in Portland) Larry and I came back home and rested a bit. Then my kids wanted me to go back out with them for a little Black Friday Shopping. I am like you
Denise...that is not my thing. But I did buy my husband a 55 inch TV for Christmas. They had them for a great price. In our Apartment, it is going to feel like we are watching an I-Max Screen.
The Crowds were rude, the children had a melt-down and I had to get out of the Drama...So after an hour and a half...I had my son drop me back home with my huge TV. And hubby and I enjoyed
the rest of our night and he was excited about his TV. But today I have to buy a bigger stand for it. Another chunk of money I wasn't expecting and I will have to assemble it myself when it arrives.
This is going to be the gift that keeps on costing! LOL. I don't care as long as he is Happy!

We are having bright sunny weather but it is colder than an Iceberg!! We have snow in the foothills and Mountains but not on The Valley Floor. Which is fine with me. Tonight we are going to
a Craft Fair and to see the Tree Lighting. It is always one of our favorite nights in the Holiday Season.

I hope you all had a Blessed Thanksgiving and are moving on into a Glorious Christmas.

Love, Hugs and Christmas Joy,
Peggy

Hope everyone enjoyed a beautiful Thanksgiving with those you love.

We left Wednesday morning from JT's family.
There were so many people at the viewing Tuesday night. They didn't have a funeral just the viewing and the line didn't quit the whole 3 hrs. There were people in a line in the parking lot. I do hope people will check on her often. I know JT's sisters are close so I know the other one will be in contact with her and going to see her.
Horrible to lose a child no matter.
We headed back this way to my son's on reached him about 2:30 Wednesday and stayed over till this morning. We had a nice day yesterday just the 3 of us and then later we visited with a couple of his friends that came and we watched a couple of movies. It was quiet but enjoyed our time with him.
I really dislike having an empty nest this past year but I need to get motivated to keep busy and not stay sedentary. Leads to depression for me.

Hope everyone is having a great day whether you are working, shopping the sales or whatever. I never go out on Black Friday.

I am working on laundry and putting away fall decor today.

Peggy,
Thanks.
I miss the smell of plumeria. The first time I ever smelled it was when we got to the airport in Honolulu when we were flying over to our first duty station in Pearl Harbor. There is no smell like it.

I have been getting our things ready to travel. Not looking forward to seeing family for this purpose but we need to be there for Jt's sister and family.

Hope everyone is looking forward to some good family time this holiday.

Denise...that is such sad news about JT's nephew. Prayers are with you!!

That is wild that the Christmas Cactus Blooms for many Holidays. I have never known one to do that! My Plumeria from Hawaii is still blooming. They say not to let it go dormant the first year...so,
I haven't but it is crazy that it is still putting out pretty pink blooms!! I Love It!

Do NOT worry about getting the Christmas Stocking out early. You need to take care of family first!!

Well, I had a nice visit with my oldest Step-daughter all day yesterday! She knew I was having a Fibro Flare Day so she brought dinner and we just heated it in the oven. She also brought me a
bag of Birthday Gifts!! She really is a sweetheart. I told ya'all that I love having my Birthday All Month Long but now it is into the two-month range. LOL

I hope everyone is counting their blessings and not their troubles! Changing one's perspective can make all the difference in the World.

Love, Hugs, and Joy,
Peggy

Peggy,
this one only bloomed at Christmas the year I got it. Ever since it has bloomed at Thanksgiving and Valentines day. One year it bloomed at both those holidays and St. Patrick's day. Then it didn't bloom for a few years until now. I am getting your swap ready but we have a funeral for Jt's nephew who died suddenly on Saturday morning. I hope to have it out the first of December. Such a devastating thing for the family.

Yes, Busy, Busy, Busy!!! My oldest Step-daughter was here today. Her and my hubby made it to Church but not me! Rain!! It is amazing how many times it rains on Sunday and keeps me from going.
Maybe next Sunday!! My step-daughter was so sweet and even brought dinner and so I didn't even have to cook...which was so nice. We had a great visit with her. She is driving back to Spokane tomorrow.

Yay, Teacher Tammy came back!!! So, happy to see you on The Porch. I knew that someone or something must have kidnapped you because it It was like..."now you see her and now you don't! Glad you are
back girlfriend! We really did miss you!!

Denise...your Christmas Cactus looks so pretty. I had an Easter one for years but a couple of moves were a couple to many for it. It rebelled and just died off.

Patsy...sounds like you are going to have a houseful for Thanksgiving...that is so Special!! Hope you all enjoy the Family Time!

We are going out to dinner this year and I am looking forward to that!!

It has gotten cold here!! It feels like winter!!

Have A Great Week Girls!!!

Love, Hugs, and Joy,
Peggy

Sounds like everyone is busy, busy with preparations for lots of things.

Patsy, I have family in Ohio too. How far away are you from Ohio? We want to find somewhere more central to all of the family when we move.

Quite chilly here this morning. Started the wood stove going and went to start coffee, was greeted by this.



So nice to see it in bloom. I repotted it this summer and I guess it was happy to be able to stretch it's roots.
