Hello all!

I am probably the most inconsistent Farm Girl...I usually only check in every few months; typically when it's either chilly or really hot and I'm forced inside. I hope you all have had a wonderful December.

To my point: I have several lovely pen pals that I've made through this forum and I'd like a few more. The newest pen pal thread I've seen has been inactive for quite a while. Is anyone interested in reviving this? If there is a thread that is current that I've missed, I do apologize. I just went to the one I had been to previously where I located my pen pals and see it hasn't had activity in a long time.

Okay, I have now added Jessie and I am emailing out the new list tonight (6/30). Tina, please let me know if you receive it! Hope y'all are doing well.

This week has been extremely hot and humid. We are looking at 105-110 on the heat index for tomorrow. Thankfully, there has been a breeze, even if it's like a heater blast. Lol. Tomatoes have been very plentiful this year and so have the zipper cream peas! So we are eating good in the neighborhood. How is your week???

Good morning, y'all! Tina, I did and I see your email address on there. Did you check your spam folder? I can resend. Jessie, I'll get you added in as well and send you the list. Debbie, congrats! My friends love OR. they moved there about 5 years ago.

I'll update list this week and get it sent out again.

To my sweet penpals, I am sorry I have been MIA.
But, we move to Oregon July 1st and I have been crazy busy, busy. Packing as we are moving ourselves.
I will make it up to you when I am settled.
Vanessa, thank you so much for all your cards and letters and not giving up on me. I have really enjoyed the letters you have sent already.

Amanda I will email you my new address.

Big Hugs,
Debbie

Oh mercy Amanda! I was right there with you! The humidity made it feel in the 100s here! Veggies are rolling in, flowers blooming, purple Martin's babies fledging, yes, full time summer in Al.!! However we are still at phase 2 in opening and may go back to phase one as more and more covid cases are on the rise!! Stay safe and healthy and happy everyone!!:D

Hello Deb and Tina! Yes, that is correct link to sign up. Here is a shorter version, but it will take you to the same place:

https://forms.gle/tg8VafozC6Ut4rAx7

Sorry it took me a while. I have to get on my big (old) computer to get on the forum, and I hadn't booted it up in a while! I will collect y'alls info and add it to the list, then I'll email the entire list out to everyone again with the updates.

How is everyone doing? It is hot and dry here...getting crispy. In other words, it is TX summer! Blah. But at least the veggies are rolling in! I think that is my favorite part of summer. We have been blessed this week with lower humidity. The beginning of last week was just too much. It was 97 and probably near 100 percent humidity...I don't even know. I just can't take it anymore.

Hope your week is off to a good start!!!

Amanda

Hello Janamarieje, I received your adorable package today with the material and flower seeds. Did you know that is my favorite type of flowers. Love wild flowers always
Thank you for thinking of me.

Thanks Amanda :)

I am looking forward to some snail mail. Things are okay here - we are staying home and well so far. Doing a little container gardening and crafting. I love East Texas - my daughter went to college there and itís still a place I love to visit.

Have a great Saturday!

Hi everyone,

I would love to be pen pals :) itís been a while since I have been active on the boards but since we have been at home, I have been looking around a little - Iíve got my sour dough starter on my kitchen sink, and I have been thinking of starting a couple merit badges. I have been sending happy mail notes to friends and family and I would love to add letter writing to my days.

I will pop over and fill in the form and hope to be included whenever you have time :)

Laura

Hey Jami!

I will check and see if I sent you the newest one.

Y'all, I do apologize. Where I live, it is high gardening season (planting), and I have been really going nuts on the front yard. This year, more than ever for obvious reasons. I will also check in with Danyel. I am still working through the pen pal list and I will get more letters out! I was doing pretty well, and then it warmed up enough to plant. I have FORTY more tomatoes to find a place for. LOL. I may have gone a bit overboard? Oh well, I will have lots to can and lots to share. (God willing!)

Hope you all are doing well, and praying for everyone's health!

Amanda

Hi ladies, I just sent out my first batch half of letters this last week. I had an envelope addressed to Krista and I think I may have enclosed her letter in one of the other envelopes! Sorry! Today I'll be writing my other letters plus a few to friends from the military. The weather has been beautiful but today is misty rain so no outdoors work! I pray everyone is staying well and healthy despite this pandemic! I will understand if you choose not to take any mail right now. Let me know and I'll wait till all is settled and wrote to you again. Its wonderfully peaceful and relaxing to write and share. Thank you for this forum. Blessings...

Dianna, glad he is almost home; that's exciting! I know that corona is making things difficult...the first case (outside of quarantine) was reported today, close to Houston. I hope with warmer weather, it will slow down/stop as it does with the flu. We are trying to just keep things stocked at the house if there is any disruption in the food/goods distribution system.I'll be glad when it's all over, to be honest.

Joan, I have a daughter like that: She keeps me cracked up!

Danyel, I sent you an email this morning to confirm some info. As soon as you let me know, I'll send the list your way and give your info to everyone else. :D

I'm working on letters y'all! I've been painting my house, inside, before hubs gets home in 2 weeks from Afghanistan! Now, because of this coronavirus they are saying he may not be able to travel. Some of you know my situation and know this is difficult for me but God is watching over us all and will help where needed!
Joan, nailed it hon!!

You all may understand this. My daughter said to me "mom, you seem to be the oldest in this penpal group, any wise suggestions you have for the others".
LOL, really?! Well, I said to her "live your life". Then she said, how come you never said that to me growing up LOL.
