FarmDream Julie - your garden greens look yum! I'm jealous...but our weather here is fabulous, so I won't complain :p.

Herblady Judy - That's terrible about your shoes! Sometimes they just wear out, even if you aren't wearing them. Disappointing, isn't it?

Peggy - what specialty coffee did you get? It looks yummy! About Outlander - which book/page are you on? That doesn't sound like the first one to me, but it's been quite a few months since I read it last...Claire went through the "stones" & wound up in 1745 (I think), and she doesn't understand what's going on, and nobody exactly trusts her b/c of her accent (or lack of one) & her last name, but she finds that she'd rather be with the Scottish Highlanders than the English Army....I do agree that some parts of the series are a little "slow", but it does pick up, especially in the next book or two. I personally think the series are fantastic, but that's just my opinion. Can't particularly say I like the Lord John Series, but they are readable for me.

Well, I finally got the phone call for getting my tonsils out - Feb 6! It's only 2 weeks away! Which is good. The lady I talked to didn't really like the fact that I was going to phone her back tomorrow morning to let her know for sure that it was ok. I told her I was at a job that doesn't really allow for immediate time off kind of thing, so I'd have to double check & make sure it was alright. Thankfully the new director said it would be alright. I can't wait. A whole week & a half off! Lovely! (And then a 3 day weekend after I go back. Even nicer!) Now just to get things figured out about who's going to take me/pick me up from the hospital & all that un-fun stuff. I'm kind of hoping that I can get Feb 3rd off, b/c I have the afternoon of the 1st off, the 2nd off for a different, un-related medical appointment, and Mom's taking me since it's in the crazy, freaky, screwed up city (where I know nothing about where to go or how to get there!), so I'm thinking & hoping that I can just go to Mom's, then we can to the hospital on Monday morning & it'll all be good. I have my doubts about it actually working out like that...but you can always hope, right?

The weather here is wonderful this week! Tomorrow is supposed to be +5C/40F. Which is crazy weather for January, but at least we're going outside! It's so nice to be able to go outside with the kids, especially near the end of the day. Now let's hope it doesn't rain tomorrow :s.

Well, I think I'm going to make a few CDs, do some dishes (where is that darn dish fairy?? She keeps skipping my place!), and put a few things away. Have a good night everyone!

Life isn't about finding yourself. It's about creating yourself.

Good Morning

we had snow most of the day yestersay. Now they are calling for rain today, so we will probably loose our beautiful snow. :(

Judy Your poor shoes! You lasted longer than I would have. I think I would have gone and bought new ones while we were out.

I am so for the 4 day work week. Some of the schools in our area go Monday to Thursday and use half day Friday for students that need extra help. I know we have talked about it here in Idaho, but doubt it will happen any time soon.

Tammy are you wanting the sourdough, the patato, or both?

Peggy the first book was a little slow in spots, but I liked the story. I just picked up the
second one. I will let you know what I think of it.

The sourdough is on the counter for the day. I will have some time tomorrow to make it. Have a great day.

I agree the book moves slow at times. Definitely not when Jamie spanks Claire! Oh boy was I fuming, too. I'm half way through now. I'm trying to get done with it because my library due date is coming up and I have some other books I want to read.

We had a terrible storm last night that kept thundering lightning and torrential rain. The power was out for most of the night. It started clearing up at 7. The schools are doing a late start and so is DH's work. I sent DD with DH because the bus has still not shown up. DH tried to go to work earlier but came back saying one of the roads was closed. Hopefully that is still not the case. All that to say that I am ready for a nap! Have a good day girls.

Pam, Dianne and Julie...thanks for letting me know about the books. I started a Jack Reacher thriller
and so, I plan to read in Outlander until my head screams "Move On" then I will switch over to the Reacher Mystery/Thriller....so, going back and forth like that...I should be able to make it through The Outlander
and then will decide from there if I read the rest of them. Bunny said if you start the first one YOU MUST read the whole Series. So, we'll see.

My tooth extraction yesterday was an upper molar and the only pain I am feeling is where they inserted the needles of Novacaine. I have to have double the amount of Painkiller because of my Fibro. My Dr. insisted I tell them that I have a need for higher dosage because pain tolerance is higher. So, they shot me four times and it has left my left eye a bit hazy and funny feeling. Hope that goes away. I was just thankful
that they didn't have to surgically remove it like they thought they would have to (saved me $60.00) and that they didn't have to
go down through my left eye socket with the needle. My dad had that done and it has grossed me out all
these years.

OK, back to bed for awhile...I am rummy from the meds. And I feel the next rain system coming in.
I could forcast weather for the 6 Oclock news if they wanted me to. Ha ha! I'm never wrong. LOL

hugs and more hugs,
peggy

Good morning everyone. Well the sun is trying really hard to come through the haze. Kind of nice after yesterday. It snowed then rained then snowed again. It couldn't make up it's mind. But it was a cloudy foggy whiteout kind of day. I sat in class and looking out the window at the trees, it was kinda cool. You saw the trees but not the ground. They looked like they were ghost trees.

Been working on my nephew's John Deere tractor quilt. I hope to get the borders on this weekend sometime. I'm quilting as I go so it will be all done in no time. I'm also doing some fun crochet flowers. Nice to do in front of the TV.

Mom has been driving me nuts. She is acting like a total invalid now. Can't lift anything or do anything except her computer games. She is now complaining about her other shoulder again. She has had two surgeries on one side and 3 on the other. I'm beginning to feel like a maid and housekeeper. At least I'm not bathing or dressing her.
I think if she didn't have her shoulders to complain about, she wouldn't have anything to talk about. Every where we go I have to hear the same stories over and over again. She lives such a sad life. But I always knew what kind of person she was. Everything has always been about her. I never saw her do a kind thing for anyone else. She was always (and still is) conniving for what she could get out of people.

School is going good. Lots of homework as usual, but I think I'll do fine. Now I just need to find work again. I have enough money to get me by until April. I'm trying to leave it to God to provide. I'm going to start putting my brochures for pet sitting around town. I don't care if I have insurance or not. If someone asks, I'll discuss it. Hopefully no one will.

Anyway, I have to get up and ready to take mom to town.

Here is a picture of my recent crochet flower. I plan on making a bunch of different ones and attaching them to a knitted base for a purse.


Here is my beloved yarn basket filled with colorful new cotton yarns for my flowers. I have bits and pieces of leftovers from other scarves I have made. Lots of fun fuzzy yarns for edging.


It's all melted now, but this is what my mom's rose bushes looked like last weekend.



Anyway, homework is done. Just wasting time in bed with my laptop. All the kitties are asleep.

Thanks for posting all the great pics Gals! I've enjoyed them.
Well we sure are having a crazy winter. One day it's in the 40's, the next we have an overnight blizzard with 10 inches of snow, the next day we have high wind gusts up to 50MPH, then a thunderstorm that night and all the snow is gone. Totally weird! Now we are mid 30's and partly cloudy!
Well, I'm off to have my tea and watch my British mystery, "Rosemary&Thyme," I love those two ladies....as much as I love Miss Marple & Agatha Christy!
Toodles!

Oh I love all the pics thanks all...I just wanted to pop in and say hi and thank everyone for the prayers...I'm on day 16 of not smoking and things are going well....I do what to say that pray works...I've always know that...DH and I are trusting in the Lord as always to get us through this very lean time in the real estate business... I know he has always brought us through...

one quick special hello to Peggy, I'm glad things went well with your teeth...take care...and I understand the need for more meds in cases like that...

hope to check in tomorrow.

Nice pics Bunny! Way to go Penny! You show those companies that you are not a slave to their product any longer.

I finished up my bee class last night. It was a really good class. They had one of the beekeepers telling all kinds of funny stories and mishaps about collecting the honey. Like, don't take off your bee suit to collect the honey in your garage until after you close the garage door. At this time I will have to be an observer and slowly build up what I will need for a hive. It doesn't bother me because we were six months late on starting our bunnies, also. It'll get done and not in a rush. DH has to go to Missouri to see his oldest daughter graduate high school in May so all our extra money needs to be saved for that trip. After that, then I can put money toward getting a hive. There's always extra equipment with other bee handlers as well. This will give me time to work on learning German. Oh boy! Turns out my Bible study lady was born in Germany and is still very fluent. Once I get the basics then I hope I can have some conversations with her.

Have a great day y'all! Weather is back to very nice here today.

Morning ladies! Another gray hazy day here. I'm by myself in the office and have absolutely no energy to do anything. I felt a lot better yesterday but it's like one of those one step forward two steps back with this recovery. I may end up cancelling my dance class again this week which would make it 3 weeks in a row. I started using my inhaler and that helped yesterday considerably with the cough but today it doesn't seem to be doing much. We'll see how I'm feeling later today. If this keeps up I might have to see if I can get an appt with the doctor.

A close friend of mine had a heart attack Monday. He's only 52. Had an angioplasty and stent placement Monday and they're sending him home today. Insane the way they kick people out of hospitals so quickly after surgery. Please keep Joel in prayer for recovery. He sold cars for a living and got let go a couple years ago. He tried real estate but that didn't work out well. They lost their house the end of October to foreclosure. They've just really been having a hard time and now this.

Not sure if I mentioned that I started using paperbackswap.com to help get rid of some books I no longer wanted. They're going pretty quickly, mostly the mysteries and homeschooling stuff so far. Hopefully the romance novels start going soon or I might have to just donate those. I'm waiting on a book about a scandinavian woman homesteader. Not sure if it's a novel or biographical. I was so excited when I got home and found a book in the mail thinking it had arrived - nope, it was one of the books I ordered for the man. Maybe today. I have probably 8 books to mail out tomorrow after I get paid.

Dianne - both recipes please. I lost the sourdough recipe my uncle gave me years ago.

PeggyAnn - glad things went well with the extraction. While you're having these extractions you might want to use a product called Biotene to prevent dry socket. I thought it was a waste of money so the last time I didn't use it and I ended up with dry socket which is painful. You can get Biotene at most stores. I won't get an extraction again without using it that's for sure.

Bunny - beautiful flowers! I always have thought yarn baskets are so pretty but I can't keep one because the cats pull the yarn balls out and unroll the balls LOL Got to love our kitties.

Well back to work for me. Take care!

Good Morning My Porchies...

Bunny...what beautiful pictures. The yarns are my favorite. I have a big basket like yours (size wise I mean" I just go nuts over yarns!

Tammy...thanks for the heads up on the Biotene. Never heard of it. I don't get dry socket if I do everything they tell you to do these days. Like no drinking through a straw, no real hot or cold beverages for the first couple of days, no soda, no caffeine and no alcoholic beverages. They never use to tell you all that stuff before and I always got dry-socket and those are so painful aren't they?

Judy...I have never heard of Rosemary and Thyme...British Mystery. Sounds like something I might want to check out.

Penny...Yahoo, You Go girl...you are doing great on that no smoking thing. We are all really proud of you! Feb 21, I get all the rest pulled. Not excited about that.

Well, gotta go for now...

Living Loved,
Peggy

Peggy, Rosemary&Thyme is a super British Mystery Series(in my humble opinion). Great with a cup'o tea! They are 2 gals who do landscaping and solve crimes. They aren't afraid to eat on camera either, unlike our American actors. These gals can EAT!!! lol And they always have dirt under their nails because of the garden work. It's a wonderful piece of entertainment!

Hi Evryone
Rain this morning now sunshine. This weather is so crazy.

Peggy I hope you get to feeling better.

Bunny The crocheted flowwer looks really prety and putting lots of them on a knit purse is a neat idea.

Judy I am jealous. I love "Rosemary &Thyme" They took it off our local station, so I have not seen it for a while. :(

Tammy it will probably be this weekend before I can put the recipes on. I will look for my sourdough starter recipe. I have had this start so long I don't know if I can find the recipe. As for making the bread that I have memorised. LOL

Penny You can do it. Way to go 16 days. Awesome!!!

You all have a great day

Judy, I love Rosemary and Thyme too. I watch it on Netflix. I find all kinds of fun British shows. One of my favs is "A Touch of Frost" He is a police detective that solves mysteries. He is always getting into trouble because he doesn't always play by the rules. Another one I like is "George Gently". I watched all the current ones and now am waiting for the next group to be released.

Thanks everyone for the kind words about the crochet flowers. I can't always get time for the sewing room so this keeps my creative spirit alive.

Peggy, I feel bad about you and your teeth. I hate to think what you are going through. I know we are all praying it will go well.

Julie, good for you making it to all your bee keeping classes. I'm sure once you get everything together it will make it worth the while you took your time.

Tonight is Bunco with mom. I made chicken salad sandwiches with apples, celery and onions. I put everything in a food processer the chopped it up a little more than usual. Still tastes pretty good. Everyone seems to love them. I get tired of a table full of deserts and no real food. Funny thing is, the sandwiches disappear pretty fast so everyone feels the same. Wish they would get the message and bring real food. Oh well, once a month dessert for dinner. I guess it's ok to indulge once a month.

Penny, amazing 16 days have gone by already! So happy for you.

Later all, have a good evening!

My library carries the Rosemary and Thyme series. Maybe your's has it too Peggy. It is a great series. I'm onto Midsomer Murders now. I've seen the whole Touch of Frost series. Loved it! Learned all the slang bad words.

We had a bit of snow overnight. Made for slushy commuting this morning. I'm getting tired of all this mud.

Thanks to whoever it was that suggested Rosemary & Thyme. I watched 3 episodes of it on Netflix last night. LOVED IT! My energy level was wiped out and I was coughing quite a bit again so I had to cancel my dance class. It was a nice relaxing show to watch while wrapped up in a blanket with Oreo curled up with me. I love how spunky Rosemary is.

PeggyAnn - you can stream it off Netflix. They probably have it on DVD too. Libraries might have it. You might try HULU too, they have a lot of stuff on there. I love watching it off Netflix because it's commercial free.

Dianne - That's fine. I won't have time to bake anything until the weekend anyway.

I received a shipment from Culinary Teas the other day with my chai tea & dessert tea samplers. Talk about yummy tasting teas. If you haven't ordered from this company yet the samplers are the way to get a wide variety.

I made a doctor's appt this morning to go in and get this cough checked. My lungs are feeling tight even with my inhaler and the cough has picked up again. The man is complaining about how tired I am all the time like I can control it. I'll try to get on the computer over the weekend to checkin. Have a great weekend everybody!

Good Morning
I just wanted to stop in quick and say thank you. I have been going through some things that I have not shared. I am not sure how to put it all into words. But I wanted to say thank you for sharing your lives, the ups and the downs with me. You are aspecial group of women and I thank God you are a part of my life.

to us! If you really can't talk about it right now that is OK too! But just know we are here for
you sister and this really is a safe place when and if you are ready. We've got your back girlfriend
and you have our prayers and embraces coming your way!

Dianne, I agree with Peggy. Sometimes just writing it out and sending it off helps. There were times I needed to vent and had no one to talk to. We just want to be a nonjudgmental support to you.

Tammy, I'm glad you are going to the doctor. I hope he takes good care of you. I hate it when men get cranky because we don't function at top speed for them. I was married to one of those. Instead of being worried, he would get all cranky because it was an inconvenience to him.


It's sunny today and 29 degrees. Snow is slowly disappearing. Amazing how the cold doesn't bother people as much as the cloudy skies. Off to take mom to the doctor to see if she can take off the sling. That would mean she can drive again. Yippeee. I can only hope he says yes. We can never get everything done in one day because she won't get up before 11am. So every day we have some place she has to go right in the middle of the day. Of course right in the middle of homework or sewing.

Anyway, stay warm and safe.

Dianne, there is something very comforting to be able to unburden yourself to a groups like ours...you don't have to see or be seen face-to-face. We are all sisters who care and feel free to share what you feel comfortable doing. We're here in spirit for each other and you can feel the love and acceptance whenever you read the posts.

Dianne, I'm sorry things aren't going so well right now. Why don't you just sit on the porch and we'll just sit here with you. I'll give you some scriptures that help me. Matthew 6:8 lets us know that God already knows what we need even if we have a hard time praying about it. 1Corinthians 10:13, at the end tells us we won't have more than we can bear, but God also makes a way out for us in order to endure it.
