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...

Denise...so glad that your grand-daughter is there to keep Grandma having some fun! Yes, it never fails that there is always something that throws your plans right out the window!! But...
hey, they get whet they get for pulling this on everyone. My Oldest Step Daughter will be here tomorrow to see her dad. She started coming every month just to spend time with her dad
over a year and a half ago...when we thought my husband only had months to live. Now, she just keeps coming. And her dad enjoys her for a few hours and then she has plenty of time
left to see friends and other Family. ~ I will be off with my youngest son's family...but hope to see her too. She is driving from Spokane and that takes a good 6 1/2 hours in good traffic...
the roads will be busy with Holiday Travelers. So, I might be home by the time she gets here. She is staying until Tuesday!

I just ran out and did a bit of grocery shopping. I hope to get my Bathroom cleaned today. I will save all the mopping of floors until Monday Night. My husband is messing up the rooms as
fast as I clean them. Men!! They just don't get it. I tell you...I fall into bed every night exhausted. I usually take Sleep MD at night to help me get to sleep but I have been out of it for a
couple of days and just haven't needed it. It is an all Natural Supplement but let me tell you I would rather take it than work this hard every day lol. I have always been a Spring Cleaning Gal
and not so much a Fall Cleaning Person. Now, I remember Why...too much work!! LOL

Okay girls...it is quiet on The Porch. Love You All To Pieces!!!

Love, Hugs and Joy,
Peggy

Peggy, Isn't that always the way? Just when your are ready to do something you have to put it on hold.

Working in the office today. Getting files cleaned out and more organized which is how I like it. Still have some errands today. Our oldest gd is here today. She spent the night and will again tonight. They only live like 5 minutes from us so she tries to get over here as much as she can. We always have a good time and she keeps me from getting down in this weather we are having. Rainy and cold.

Lori...we want pictures of Maggie May!!! If she is half as cute as Trixie then she will be a little doll baby and I want to see her!!! I miss my Bella sometimes something fierce!!

Denise...I started getting my packages wrapped and now they are pulling a Bank Inspection for our Apartments Tuesday...so, I had to clean up the mess and i'm not even half done
and get my room put back in order. i hate Inspections. And who does that two days before Thanksgiving??????? i also was going to put away Fall and get out Christmas but now
have to wait until after the Inspection. Their timing really stinks. Can you tell that I'm NOT excited about this? LOL

Hope everyone has Family Plans for Thanksgiving. We are going out this year for Dinner...to The Heathman Lodge. They do a Wonderful Meal!..with a Piano Player and all. So Nice.

Sunny day today! Really Pretty out!! Take Care and if you aren't real busy...feel free to come help me deep clean my Apartment!! LOL

Love, Hugs and Joy,
Peggy

Only a couple more people to take care of for Christmas. All my wrapping is done. Worked on all of it today.

Heather, I always enjoy watching the animals in the snow. That they enjoy it just like some of us "kids" do. LOL!

There isn't much going on here which I am good with. I am in a couple of swaps so I have been working on some things for those.

Beautiful day out today. I just had to soak up some of this nice day because I know it's going to get cold out again. LOL. I have added an addition to our family. Maggie Mae has come to live with us too. She is the sister to Trixie Lyn, our sweet little Shih Tzu puppy. They are so adorable together. Playing, wrestling, and fighting. I have a stroller for them and took them for a walk yesterday and today. They loved it.

Shannon, I am praying for you that God will be with you and comfort you in your time of grief.

Heather, your cats are so photogenic. The camera seems to love them. I sure do enjoy the pictures you post.

Hello, My Porchies...It has been a busy weekend! And it seems Pretty Crazy that it is the 17th of Nov. already!! Time just flies by when you are staying busy!! Got to see my
Sweet little family on Saturday. We went over to Portland to our Favorite Antique Mall for the Opening of their Christmas Festival. You will never guess what I bought?? I bought an
old Fashioned electric fireplace insert...yes, just the logs that light up!! It is so pretty and gives a little cozy mood to our living room. I have an old Brown Bookshelf in our living
room that had been my MIL's and I have always used it for books and nick-nacks. So, I am going to put the logs on top of the Shelving unit and decorate around it for each
Holiday. It will be fun! I was so excited. I have often thought of buying a small electric Fireplace but if I did I would have to get rid of the Bookshelf completely and I don't want
to do that! ~ Plus I picked up some stocking stuffers and we just all had a ball mingling with the crowd! It was pretty insane! But isn't everything this time of year??? The
Grandkids and the parents were pretty dressed up...so they decided to head back to Vancouver Mall and see if they could get early pictures with Santa at the Polar Express!
And sure enough, there was not the usual crazy crowd...as Santa arrived 2 weeks early this year. They got adorable pictures taken and even mommy and daddy got into a
couple of the shots. So, they decided they would use those for their Christmas Postcards this year. Patti (the other Grandma) and I decided after 3 hours of being at the
Antique Mall did not want to walk the Big Mall...so, we went to JoAnnes, Marshalls, and then went and had dinner out. Then I came home and fell asleep in my recliner while
watching Football. I was so tired. Fatigue from the rain. Then I slept last night for 9 hrs and 20 minutes and woke up just as tired as when I went to bed.

Today, still rainy...so I declared it a PAJAMA AND COFFEE DAY! Hubby and I tried to watch two Football Games but they were rather boring...so we both took naps and then
I worked on Diamond Painting and selecting partners for The MJF Stuffed Stocking Swap that I try to Hostess each year. And now I need to go Post Information about my
Bible Study Christmas Party. We are doing a Baked Potato Bar and Also, giving to a Charity to help displaced families & children from the California Fires. Then we give
each other Christmas Cards and a few little goodies!

Denise...you are so right on about giving God the continued praise for JT's accident, recovery, and looking for the lessons in The Circumstance. Even if you don't see the
lessons right at first...you will see God in the Middle of it! And you have! That is such a great example of showing Jesus to others.

Hope everyone had a Blessed Sonday and that this week will be a delightful one for each and every one of you!!

From My Heart to Yours,
Peggy

Just about done with my gifts for the upcoming birthdays and Christmas. It makes me so glad when I can finish early because I want to enjoy lots of other things going on!

Thank you to all who having been praying for JT. I know that has gotten him through. He has never been down about the situation which they say can happen. We are just so very grateful that it wasn't any worse because it surely could have been. But God was watching over him. Some don't understand why we can say that as they look at what is lost instead of what was not. They say God could have kept it from happening and indeed he could have but He knows what is best and we have learned a lot through this and honestly we have become much closer because of it. I am grateful for that alone.

I hope everyone is enjoying this time of year wherever you may be. It is definitely November. For us that means dark and dreary most days. I have been busy working in the office keeping on top of paperwork and learning the bookkeeping system we use. It is interesting but some days trying. I am easily distracted so need to really focus when dealing with customers on the phone. I use to call it multitasking but I guess that isn't necessary for me to do these days so I have to learn to focus on the thing at hand.

I am looking forward to seeing my son at Thanksgiving time. He moved a couple hours away last year and I haven't seen him since September. Now that doesn't sound like a long time but he isn't good at keeping in phone contact so it seems a long time to me.

Enough from me for now.
I hope everyone has a good night.

Peggy - I hope you're right about my 40's. My 20's were filled with events like graduation college and getting married. Things didn't go as planned in my 30's - no kids or new farm yet. So, it will be wonderful if I feel on top of the world in my 40's!

Judy and Patsy - so sorry to hear about your uncle.

Judy - as long as the cows can get out of the wind they tolerate the cold much better than we do. And they're like little kids when it snows. They run and jump around. It's fun to watch :)

Denise - so glad to hear that JT is progressing so well.

I've been working on Christmas gifts too. I thought I was doing so well starting early, but I'm not as far ahead as I wanted to be. I think that's how it goes every year LOL!!!

Judy, so sorry about your Uncle's passing. Today is the 6th year anniversary of my sisters passing. Time speeds by these days.

JT had an appointment with the plastic surgeon. She is very pleased with his PT progression and healing. He will continue PT for 6 more weeks , twice a week and see her again in 6 weeks.

Working in the office has been taking up a lot of my time. Getting my Christmas gifts and birthday gifts done. I may even be finished by Thanksgiving I hope. I will then be busy preparing to spend time with family for birthdays and Christmas.

I hope all of you are doing well these days.

Thanks Peg, I appreciate that. My Dad bought my Mama some of those light bulbs years ago that mimic daylight. Then she bought some lamps for the same purpose. I have those now and whether or not they work, I don't know... but I feel that they do. If its a placebo affect...I'm going with it. Hahaha I told Patsy, she needs them, since she's so Solar, and can only function when the sun is out. Hahaha
Snow started last night as I was going to bed and we have 2" this morning. It's 27 n gusty so it looks blizzard-like at times. It's suppose to be around 15 tonight. YIKES!!! We are REALLY getting a taste of winter early! Winter weather doesn't usually start until January. Heathers poor cows! I'm so glad to be retired. No more driving and worrying about road conditions. Of course I still Pray for Dave when he goes to work, but I don't have to do it anymore. YIPPEEEE!!! hahaha

Judy...So very sorry to hear about your Uncle. It's like a lost link to your Mama. I loved her attitude about not having half-siblings. That was a Wonderful way to look at them. Sometimes death creeps to our
door and sometimes it is an all-out assault. Neither one is easy to deal with. My prayers are with you and Patsy and I pray the funeral will be a blessed time of celebrating his life. Hang in there girls!! I am
praying for you and the Services.

Denise...I'm glad you are doing okay! Thought you had sounded rather down as of late. My husband is bipolar and he has been down lately. Some of it is just the gray cloudy weather. He really needs to
sit under a Light in the late Fall and winter months. If I ask him why he is down or he can't really tell me...he just assures me that everything is good between us! ~ Just know I am praying for you and JT.

I can hardly believe that it is Veterans Day. I sure do Thank All Veterans for their service to our Country. My dad never served in the Military but my FIL did and many others I know did. My husband,
best friend and I went to a Gospel Concert last Tuesday Night and they had all Veterans Stand for each Group of The Military. It was so Honoring and I was so thrilled that they took the time to
pay respect for their service. The Oldest one there was 95 and served in WW11 and Korea...in The Marines.

I went shopping with my little family and 2 grandkids last night for a couple of hours. I rarely say this about my Grandkids (who I think are PERFECT) but they were not well behaved in the Store and
my Son and DIL were about ready to run off together and leave the kids with both Grandma's (forever)!! I kept thinking...it is going to be a long time until Christmas gets here at this rate. LOL Neither one
knows when to just STOP! It is funny because neither Shane nor Sadie were like that as kids...so how did they have children like that??? There is some strong DNA coming out of them from some-
where!! ROFLOL

Well, I am happy to say that it is a Beautifully sunny day today. Hope you all have a lovely week and that you find something to be Praise Worthy in your hearts and home!

Love, Hugs and Joy,
Peggy

Hi Porches, death comes sneaking in so quietly. Patsy and I lost a favorite Uncle Saturday morning. He had leukemia years ago and it was in remission... until he fell a couple of weeks ago. It came back and that was that. He was my Mama's half Brother, but she always said, "There are no stupid words like half or step in my vocabulary, they all were Brothers & Sisters to me! I helped raise them and we were close family!" She wrote letters and sent birthday cards to all 13 of them regularly and made phone calls when she didn't hear from them that way. That was Mama! He lived right here in town within walking distance of us. The funeral is Thursday, also within walking distance.
I'm going to miss his so much!

Peggy,
I am good. I won't complain because I can get out of bed in the morning and do most of what I need to.

Shannon,
Still keeping your family in prayer as grief is a long road. All you have had go on it will not only take time for physical healing but emotional as well. Knowing you will see your babe again someday is what you hold on to though I know it is a difficult thing to do at times. I do hope that will bring you some comfort.

Denise...Well, Good for JT! That is just amazing...but you know what? I believe he will heal faster that way emotionally. That is just Wonderful!! My hubby had to find an entirely new career...but
as I said, I know God was leading him where he was really called to. How are you doing sweet girl???

Shannon...I just am keeping your family covered in prayer. You are a smart Mama to know that each person processes death differently. I do believe that it is hardest on the Mama as she has carried
that precious life. I hope the Funeral added the hope that you will see her again someday in Heaven and the comfort in knowing that. Take care of YOU!!! And we consider it a privilege to pray for
you dear sister.


Love, hugs and blessings,
Peggy

Good morning my Porchies! Somehow life has continued going... we buried our Cassandra Grace, or Cassie Thursday... on Wednesday I found out my incision is infected, which I was worried about. And yet, life keeps marching on. We are all trying to handle this the best we can! Anyways, just wanted to pop in. Love you all and thank you so much for the prayers!!!

Peggy,
He only took one day off from work since doing this and it was Friday, the next day after it happened. I couldn't get him to stay home. Even when the guys were helping him he was going along on the jobs. Guess he just needed to be there.

Judy...I did receive your E-Card. Didn't I send you a Thank You? I tell you I have been so busy that I barely know if I'm coming or going. I keep having to remind myself that at 68 I guess it is OK to
have some forgetfulness. OK...A Lot of Forgetfulness for a girl with Fibro Fog on top of age. They say you are as old as you feel...so, I'm really 110!! LOL

Denise...I am happy to hear that J.t. is doing better and that Therapy is almost over for him. It is a long mental healing as well as physical. He is probably feeling a bit restless too! Men are so defined
by their occupation and providing for their family. When my husband had his three fingers sawed off he was getting ready to sign with a Minor Baseball League...and that pretty much ruined his dream
of playing in the Minor/Major Leagues. But God had a different plan for him...He wanted him to be a Minister and Christian Counselor and Bible College Teacher...and that is what he became. Much better
use of his talents I believe. Keeping you in my Prayers!

Patsy...thanks for the Birthday Wish. It was a fabulous one. As I creep closer to 70 my heart starts doing palpitations! LOL. But I plan to live to be 94...so 70 is Okay, when I think about it. LOL ~ I just put outa
few Thanksgiving Decorations this morning...mixed in with the Fall ones that I had already put out last month. I have a Pilgrim Couple and 5 adorable sheep that I bought from one of our Farm Sisters.
Out of the 5 Sheep, one is Black...which is a fitting reminder that there is one in every family!!! LOL

Heather...Oh, look at those kitties of yours. So, Cute!!! Thanks for the Birthday Wish!! So, you will be turning 40 huh??? I will tell you right now ENJOY YOUR 40's they were the best years of my adult life. But once
I hit 50 it was all downhill from there. ROFLOL Just enjoy each and every day of all of your 40's!! I never felt more accomplished and alive than those years!


Hey Girls...our Shannon posted on FB that they are having a Funeral this week...for the death of the baby she just lost. Please remember to keep her and her entire family in your prayers!!! Especially Shannon
as she can no longer have any more children and when that is taken out of your hands completely...that in itself is a Great Loss. I really struggled with that when I miscarried my 4th and last child...my only girl.
I mourned that loss for well over a year, maybe two.

Sun is shining here and I have a lot of work to do...so, I better get on with it.

Love, Hugs and Prayers For All,
Peggy

Denise - we had a problem with something killing our chickens too. My father in law said it was probably a weasel (although I've never seen a weasel). Turns out it was a skunk!!!

Peggy - happy belated birthday. I hope you did something fun! I turn the big 4-0 at the end of the month. Not sure where the time has gone!

Lori - no I'm not a professional photographer. And I can't make the cats pose LOL!!! I just take a bunch of pictures and usually I'm lucky enough to get a couple good ones. That's what I love about a digital camera. I can see the pictures and delete the bad ones.

We've been super busy on the farm getting ready for the cold weather but I did take my camera out the other day:



This was taken through my screen door so it's a bit funny looking.

I've been trying to work on Christmas gifts too. I was doing good until we got busy outside. Hopefully next week I'll be back at it!

Thanks for all the 'giggles' gals. Just picturing, nesting, hunkering down, roses still blooming, marigolds with happy lil faces, snow in some of your places, apple-raisin bread... so much to picture!
Peg, hope you got my Hallmark e-card I sent you. If not... Happy Belated Birthday girlfriend!
It was 46 degrees out today, but I bundled up and went out for a walk and I'm glad I did. It was sunny and felt so good!
I'll quit when the snow starts, but as long as I can still get traction, I'm out there pounding the pavement.
Hope it was a Wonderful, Blessed SonDay!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PEGGYANN.. whenever it was..

Just went around setting my clocks today on this nice sunny day. Can see a lot better in the day anyway.
Not going anywhere or doing anything so add it to my "puttering" list..

Getting about 1 egg a day from my 3 gals so they are slowing down too. They need a rest after what they've been through
with all that HOT droughty weather we had. Now they need their thermals. lol Can't win..

It was mostly likely a fox that got the girls. We patched up holes and are keeping them in now that it is colder. They are saying snow for us Friday early morning. We won't see it t least I don't think.
I too am hunkered down with my blanket and tea Patsy. Good place to be on this cold afternoon. Seems we had very few transition days of fall this year.
JT is doing better. I think 4 to 6 more days for rehab. Really can't do much until the swelling goes down completely.

Good Morning Ladies...

I just went to my first local Bake & Craft Sale. I bought 4 loaves of bread, 2 were Pumpkin & Apple & Raisin, and the other two were Meredith's Downton Abbey
Tea Cake Recipe. She had samples and it was delish. Kind of like an Old Fashion (heavy lb cake) but with a delicious Crumbley butter topping. Will be perfect with
Tea and I can drink that in my new Queens Downton Abbey Tea Cup, that my son bought me for my birthday!

It is another gorgeous Fall day! We have gone down to a couple of nights in the 20's and most nights in the low 30's...but it is not un-typical for late Fall weather
here. I hope to go do something with my kids in a while. If I do not hear from them soon...I may just go out by myself! I am in that Christmas Shopping Mood. I have
gotten a good start but I want to be done by Thanksgiving for the most part...so I can just enjoy the Season.

Denise...I never thought of weasels! Are they big enough to carry a chicken out of a fenced coupe? So, interesting!! Like you said, that isn't really the way you wanted
to get rid of your chickens. Goodness.

Girls, I'm pretty sure that I shared with you about finding my cousin Nancy Ferrell after looking for her for 43 years...through DNA. Well, just to show you what
a small world we live in. I found out that Connie Warren (one of our Farmgirl Sisters) went to school with a gal who is named Barbara...and Barbara married my
cousin's Brother. (My Cousin). I just found that out yesterday on FB. LOL

Lori, continued prayers!!


Patsy, I love how you NEST on your sofa! I always picture you sitting in an Eagles Nest with your kitties around you, while drinking tea and reading! LOL

OKAY LADIES...DON'T FORGET TO SET YOUR CLOCKS BACK TONIGHT!!

LOVE, HUGS, AND JOY,
peggy

Lori: So sorry to hear this. Been down the cancer road one to many times with loved ones. Never used to hear about cancer, now it's everywhere.
Love n hugs n prayers for strength for you all.

My fireplace is keeping my furnaces off for now. Love nesting on my couch in my blankie and a hot cuppa whatever.. Don't have my flannels
on the bed yet, but soon. Hate to give in. lo


My marigolds are still blooming. Can't believe it after we had wind chills of 21, but they are a happy bunch! Cheers me up to look at
their happy lil faces.

Denise: Sorry to hear about your chickens. We have coyote here but my coop is right behind my garage, so that keeps that keeps them
pretty safe being that close to the house, plus the farm behind me has big dogs the run loose..

Stay warm and safe til we meet again..

I think it may be a weasel got the chickens. But they usually kill them by biting and sucking the blood and they will leave them not take them with. So who knows but we will just have to make them more secure.

It was quite cold when we got up this morning. 34 and we had a freeze warning. Fortunately everything was done and in. My roses are still blooming.
