Wow, Debbie, that is a huge cinnamon roll! Bet it took you awhile to eat it. I too get tired out by the time I get done reading all the posts, my mind gets boggled, and I forget what I was going to post.
Just know that I do think of all of you throughout the day and enjoy reading about everyones day, I just can't respond to all of you at once.
Still can't work outdoors yet, way too windy and cold. I grilled hamburgers out and had to finish them inside because I was freezing out there, only 39 and colder with the wind chill. We will probably be complaining here in the summer of being too hot. No happy medium, heh?
Have a great evening,

Janet

Hey Porchies!

Miranda...I hated goin through all paperwork and red tape to buy the trailer we owned years back. I can only imagine it's gotten worse over the years. So sorry you're findin it a fight.

Judith...I spent hours upon hours pickin violet last year. It turned out to be good that I made waaaaay too much violet jelly that season. I was completely unable to pick and can this spring with the move. I won't be goin without though. I made 4 cases of it last year and we haven't polished of the second case yet, so I'm covered this year.

Julie...It is gettin to be allergy season around here. My girls are startin to suffer the symptoms a little. I'm startin them on bee pollen. I know they absolutely hate allergy season.

Debbie...That cinny roll looks awesome!! Hubby seen the photo and wants me to try makin some really huge ones like that. His favorite part of cinny rolls are the inside soft layers.

Well, ladies, I was payin for yesterdays adventures today. I was so sore and tired I couldn't hardly move this mornin. It was noon before I could go and drive the truck to get my topsoil and compost to finish off my garden bed. The guy who took my order charged me for a half a yard of compost mixed soil and then took me over to load my truck. When I got home and looked he had filled the truck bed! I got almost a yard and a half. I checked the reciept and called them to tell the guy he overfilled me. He said it was fine, they always make sure to give extra to keep their customers happy. I had more than enough to fill the box, all the planters, every extra container I could find to grow in, and still had about a third of it left over.

I didn't get anything planted like I wanted, but I will get to it in a day or so when I don't hurt so bad.

I'm gonna get the epsom salts out and have a long soak. I have a lot of ideas and plannin to get done over the next 2 days. I have to work out my patio/kitchen window/grow box/comgar plantin plan. I also have to get a food box to my gpa and gma and get my laundry done. I still haven't started it with the sudden plantin prep work the last few days.

It's supposed to be cold till friday, then warm with scattered showers. Perfect plantin weather!! I'm gonna try to do the plants in the house here out in the box friday and everything else on saturday and sunday. That will leave me with peppers, eggplants, and tomato plants in here. That should give me most of my little tables back! The plants have them all right now.

I'm off to soak in the bath with the epsom salts. I have a lot to do in the next few days!

Evening My Porchies...

Well, day two of having teeth and things are going a little better. Have to learn to take small bites because since you don't having feeling on the roof of your mouth it is easy to nearly choke on food that you didn't chew fine enough. Goodness, I never thought of some of the things you have to get use to. Like things stick to a denture where it didn't with my own teeth. But you don't realize you have a half a piece of bread stuck to the inside of your cheek until you move your tongue around. It is just so darn funny. Nobody warns you about these little problems. I guess it is an inside secret. LOL

Miss Miranda...don't you just love Credit Reports. We spent last year trying to get other peoples credit problems off our credit report. My husband was just checking the report and discovered some stuff that wasn't our stuff! It is crazy! But in our area believe it or not there are about 10 different Larry and Peggy Smiths. I know Smith is a common name but who would have every though our first names would be that common???
Don't give up girl...you will get it fixed!

Cherime...what are you going to be making with sparklies in your yarn?
Speaking of yarn...I got my pretty Medusa Bernat yarn today. Now, I just have to learn how to make granny squares. Never made them before...but I have a good Turtorial to watch...just need some time to sit down and do that. Maybe this weekend when DH is at work.

Julie...the more dishclothes you make...the faster you get (like anything). I just make them almost every night...because I unwind from the day doing it. I love the basket weave.
You and Angela...just are driving me nuts with your gardens...I so want to start planting. I think I will be able to at the end of this Month. With no more worries about snow or frost. Or buckets of rain. It has been raining for two days here and will tomorrow but then I hope to get out and clean out the garden....and at least prep it.

Bunny...you have had a little bit warmer weather than we have. We did have a warm rain today too. My lawn guy came and now my yard looks so pretty. And I took a picture of my first Rhoddie getting ready to open...and my cherry tree is just starting to blossom out. This is going to be a beautiful yard soon. There must be 15 Rhoddies, 10 azzalias, and about 10 flowering trees. and then lots of ornimental grasses, including bamboo (which I don't like). I like bamboo contained in little in-door pots but not outside. It is right in front of my front door. (dumb!)
But it was nice to move into a house that had a nicely landscaped yard already.

Teacher Tammy...how's our little Jax doing?
Yesterday the neighbors dog (a big beautiful Retreiver) came over to visit our dog Snickers who was outside during a sun-break on his tie-down. And Cinnamon discovered that I had the back door open so he just came right in and checked the place out and had a drink of water and a bite of Snickers food. It was so cute!
I am sure that you and the butterflies are having a bad case of Spring Fever. Aren't we all!!!! Hang in there....not to long before summer break!

Hi Judith...how you doing girl? I hope you get to feeling better yourself. I remember getting some of your Violet Jelly and some of Angela's last year too. They were both very good...and the first time I had ever had Violet Jelly before. Yummy! Must be a lot of work though!

Angela...what are Sonberries??? Never heard of those before. Your Gardens are going to be fantastic girl!!! All that hard work is going to pay off! Glad you got yourself a nice tub to soak those over-worked muscles.

Debbie...good grief girl, that Cinnamon Roll is big enough for everybody on The Porch. I'll bring the tea and milk if you promise to share. LOL When I first looked at your picture I thought it was a Chair...that looked like a Cinnamon Roll. lol

Netty...was it you that told the funny story about your mom chasing you around with her teeth out? That was funny! I loved the bubble gum story too. I could just picture that!

Well, off to bed to read for awhile.
Julie...I started the
the first book in the Games of The Thrones Series. It reminds me of Lord of The Rings...in a way.

More tomorrow Ladies...I know I missed, Penny, Jan, Nan and a couple of others of you...don't feel slighted, you are always in My Heart!

Was it Julie that asked about the 500 Post Gift Swap the other day? Megan is in charge of sign-ups for that. We will swap names when we hit page 500. So, there is still time for Porchies to sign up for that if you want to be a part of it.

OK...I really am leaving now...Goodnight Ya All,
Peggy

I found a bag of yarn at a thrift store and the really stretchy, pink sparkly yarn was in there. Just a small amount, not even a full ball and it had no label. I made up a set of mitts but it is almost as if it were kitted into a thread somehow. But it stretches so well that the mitts fit beautifully snug without binding. I would love to find out where it came from and what it is if it is still made.

Well it is official, we are all going to retire. Not sure what that looks like just yet but we will all discuss that when the other boss gets back. I need to work on the Etsy store and doing more bazaars this summer. Need to make that truck payment somehow.
Later all back to work.

Cherime, I don't know off hand of any sparkly stretchy yarn. Sorry. I know of some that is stretchy but no sparkle. Go to this website and see if you can find it there. http://www.yarndex.com/yarn_by_fiber.cfm?info_type=2&info_id=564
Hope you can find it!

Megan...I want in on the swap!!!!

Peggy...I'm not completely sure what it is. I seen it in my heirloom seed catalog and decided to try it. There seems to be a great deal of controversy around it and where it came from and all. I thought I'd like to have something so controversial growin in my garden.

Well, I'm not gettin anything done today and Hubby is on his way home at noon! I guess I should get busy, but I simply don't want to. I think I'm gonna pull out my seed packets and start workin real hard on my garden plans. I also have to put a seed packet together for a friend anyhow. Maybe I can get Hubby to go pick up more lumber to start on my second 4x4 box. I know I can bore him into findin something to do besides watch tv. He usually finds something to keep him busy when I ask him to help me sort and arrange my seed packs. He likes to plant and harvest and run the tiller, but plannin and weedin sends him lookin for something else to do.

I guess I need to get the seeds out before he makes it home!

I'll see you all later!

Good afternoon ladies. Slow day at work. I hate days like this with nothing to do. We received our layoff notices today effective the 30th. Hopefully we'll hear from the new company soon that was awarded the new contract. At least the new contract is supposed to be 4 years so once this settles it should be stable. The government can always cancel the contract though. I checked out the BBB and they have an A+ rating but it doesn't list their government component so I don't know if there have been any complaints that way or not. I hate these waiting games.

On a good note, a medical transcription company saw my resume online and sent me an email asking me to apply so I have that planned for this weekend since you have to do a typing test as part of the application process. I'll probably apply for part time and see how it works if they offer me a position. With these insane gas prices I would love to work from home again. I have a couple other leads for transcription companies and virtual assistant positions that I want to apply for this weekend too.

PeggyAnn- There's always things they don't tell you. At least you see the humor in it which is the best way to go. I also got a good chuckle out of the picture of the golden visiting through the dog door LOL. I've heard horror stores of skunks and other critters coming through those doors too which makes me very leary of them.

With the low night temps we've been having I'm really glad that I didn't give in and plant any seeds when we were having those record high temps. It's been below freezing the last couple nights. I'm still waffling back and forth about planting the beds. I'd hate to spend money on plants and then move but then if we don't move I'm going to be mad at myself for not planting and not having anything to can/preserve unless I pay more at the farmer's market. I've got a couple weeks left to decide.

Tonight I get to spend an evening with my son - just the two of us. We're going to see Hunger Games and then go out for Chinese. It's a very belated birthday celebration. He turned 20 last month but between his and my schedules we've had to postpone 3 times already. My older son was suppposed to be back at Ft. Hood today but apparently that's been postponed again to. I'll sleep much better once I know he's back on American soil. Needless to say his girlfriend is seriously ticked off at the Army.

Well things are getting lively here so I'm off to do some work. I'll let everybody know how the movie rated with us lol.

Hi Gals! We are having a 58 degree day today but it's cloudy. When I woke up at 7:30 there was a heavy frost on the roof.
Peggy, our neighbor use to have a golden lab(Brittney)who would come in our house when we opened the door, sniff noses with our kitties,
take a treat we offered her...and leave. It was so funny and her mom couldn't believe she was doing it. She was so sweet and gentle.
All of their dogs since then were nice and would take treats from me,but Brittney was special.
Love the denture stories. I'll have to share those with Mama. She always mentions how she can't chew any gum,not even Freedent,
which they say is ok. It sticks for her. *giggle*
Well, I have dishes in the sink that aren't going to wash themselves...didn't I just do dishes?.....

Very slow day here at work. Only 4 customers in today. Waiting for 6 o'clock to head home. Actually I have a chiropractic appointment at 6:46 so hopefully I can get there in time. I may just bug out a little early today. We'll see. After that I am head out to the farm to see how my yard looks less 3 trees. I hate cutting down trees, but sometimes it has to be done. DH hasn't sent me any pictures today, so I have no idea what its going to look like.

Hope everyone is doing well. It's a beautiful day here in Kokomo, but its freezing in my office. I'm about to turn the milk house heater on! Brrrr. Supposed to be 70 tomorrow, but rainy.

Today is DH's birthday, but we aren't going out until tomorrow since I get off work earlier. He wants to eat at Johnny Carino's. If your not familiar, its a country Italian restaurant. Thankfully they have some gluten free choices. (I'm going gluten free in order to get my ds to do it.) So far I have lost a whole pant size! I don't have a scale, so no clue on pounds.

I am also going to try to get some pics of the new kittens if I can. I will post them on the Backyard Buddies and my pictures blog site. Here's to good light and long arms! (they are in a deep kennel box in the garden shed).

Gotta run - going to see what is going on elsewhere on the forum!! Have a wonderful evening.

Hugs.

Hallelujah!!!!! My kid bought me a new CPU...now I can get back to regular posting! No he isn't quite a kid anymore but always my baby! :) Anyway...we only need about 73 more posts on here to get to page 500. Then Megan get on with her swap!!

Hi Lora...my hubby has a long lost cousin in Kokomo! It was just an afterthought when I read that you work in Kokomo! Happy Birthday to your DH! Hope you have a great time @ Johnny Carino's...good place.
Scales don't mean much...the fact that you can feel it in your clothes is surely a much more impressive note! Congrats for that! :)

Try to touch base with the rest of ya'll later date! Missed you!

My best to all,
Mel

Hi Ladies. I spent my day sitting around. I worked on my washcloth and I GOT A BLOG POST UP! The last one I did was in January, so click on the link in my signature down there at the bottom. I put garden pictures. Peggy, I got the Game of Thrones on the Kindle App so I'll start reading it tonight. I told DH about it since he likes those kinds of stories. I said, "It's the kind of story with a map in the beginning." DH made some tortilla soup tonight. It was delicious even if all the ingredients were out of cans. Hope y'all have a good evening. I'm going to watch something British and keep working on this wash cloth.

Thanks Gals! I told her you'd understand!
Julie, I'm thoroughly enjoying "Poirot,Midsummer Murders&Murder In Suburbia" ...all from the British group. Murder In Suburbia has Lisa Faulkner from Doc Martin(his girlfriend) in it....she's great!
BIG(((HUGS)))Debbie...I never had kids but Patsy had 5 and I worried about them growing up.Luckily, they were home-schooled most of their years! BIG relief!
Lora, sometimes slow days are a blessing in disguise. You can do other things for a change! ;)
Love Ya Gals!
Have a Great evening!

Hi gals, today is mt birthday, so we went out for dinner. I had chicken and broccoli alfredo. It was good, but way too much garlic in it. My son and daughter will be over Saturday to celebrate. Thanks for all the cards I recieved.
It was only 15 degrees when I got up this morning, but it did warm up to 42. I washed throw rugs and hung them outside, but they did not dry, even in the sun. Still too cold here for that.
Will catch up tomorrow, have a great evening,

Judith your violet jelly sounds good, I have never heard of it before. Do you sell it?
Lora, HB to your hubby. We have a Johnny Corinl's here that we love to go eat at. Good food!
It was a cloudy, cool, drizzly day here today. I got out this AM and did some ground work with Philly Girl before it started sprinkling. I was hoping to get a little ride in too, but that didn't happen. I was pretty worthless the rest of the day. I guess it was the weather.
I have decided to try and go another direction with my sewing business. Instead of making and repairing quilts for clients I think I am going to try and just make up some along with other items and put them in my etsy shop, which I haven't had anything in for a long time. I have several jobs to get finished, which will take a good part of the summer, but hopefully I will be able to try my new venture in the fall. If it doesn't work, I will have to go back to doing what I have been doing.
Well ladies, hope you have a great evening.

Oh for the simple life: family, quilts, corgi's, horses, homemade everything.

Hey gals, Happy Birthday, Janet, sounds like you had a good one.

Thanks for letting me in on my sister's drawing. You all are so nice that Judy and I said we felt like "squishing the stuffin's outta ya"

Loved browsing your blog Julie, nice pics too. Never knitted a dishcloth myself before, always crocheted them. :)

Have a good night all.

Good Evening Ladies...
Well, I am sooooo tired tonight. We keep having weird weather systems and it is messing with my fibro something fierce. I did make it to teach Bible Study tonight and it was a great lesson. Lots of class participation...which is how I like it.
Starting to plan our Fall Retreat at the Beach. Summer always seems to fly by and before you know it...it's Retreat time. 4 Glorious days at Lincoln City!
Last year we only had 7 Ladies that could make it...this year it looks like we are going to have 12. Perfect size group.

My DH just said that he is going to take me to The Hunger Games tomorrow. I will love it...don't know if he will. But since we usually go to his type movies...this is going to be a nice Change! Yahoo!

Judy & Patsy...you two are so funny. Of coarse we want Patsy to enter your contest. Gheesh!

Julie...your dishcloth looked very pretty.
I enjoyed your blog also!

Lora...where do you work where you only had four customers all day long? Man I would be bored out of my head. When I did work...I loved jam-packed days. They just flew by.

Debbie...your beef stew sounds sooo yummy. That is one of my all time comfort foods. Did you make baking powder biscuits with it?
I am sorry that your daughter has been exposed to mean and ugly kids who get their kicks out of bullying. Schools need to have a No-Tolerance Policy on that.

Janet...Happy birthday girl!!! Sorry, I am not doing cards because of finances right now but you were in my thoughts and prayers.

Jan...are you still going to do Quilt Restoration on the side? I would think people would love to have somebody do that. I don't know of anyone around here who would restore old quilts unless it was Bunny.

Hey Bunny...do you do that for people too? I once had a quilt top that my grandmother had made...and I think I gave it away because I never could find anyone to do finish it off for me. NOW since MJF...I know a lot of gals who probably would...but now is too late. I carried that quilt top around for 35 yrs before I passed it along to someone who was excited to have it.

Well, I feel like I am just blab blab blabbing tonight with not much new to talk about.

Take care my Porchies and sweet dreams,
peggy

Good morning everyone - I woke up to a beautiful morning, the sun is out and getting warm already. Suppose to get up to 75 today yooohooo!!! I am a sunshine, warm day girl if you couldn't tell. I have NO energy at all when it is cloudy and rainy outside, I could sleep all day.

Yesterday I went to my sons track meet and it was a cloudy and rainy day and the temp was in the 50's I think, I just about froze my petunia off. Oh well I love to watch my kids when the particitate in sports, music, plays or just about in anything I guess.

Well I finally dug out my material to make some aprons, I had it before Christmas. Kinda ashamed of myself for not getting to it before, but when winter sets in I hibernate like a big ol bear. I made tie balnkets and pillow cases for the kids for this last Christmas and if it were not for my mom I probaly would not have gotten the blankets done. That's how bad I get in the winter, guess I need to make stuff in the summer.HA

Today I need to pickup around the house and do some cleaning, this is not my favorite thing to do. Would rather be outside playing with our new dog and working in the dirt. Oh how I love the smell of fresh dirt in the spring, after that not so much.

Well can't think of anything else to say right now, so maybe I'll get back on later today.

All you girls take care and have a great day.

Just remember that God is in control of everything, sometimes we just need to let go and enjoy the ride.

PeggyAnn, I work in a coin shop. We also buy scrap gold and silver. It's a fun job, but it can be dull sometimes. Thank goodness I have my laptop. That's one reason you might see so many posts from me - thankfully, too, the boss couldn't care less what we do as long as when a customer comes in, we focus completely on them. I bought the neatest sterling silver lamp other other day. It was beautiful! The lady said it came from Greece. I did find some Greek letters on it, but didn't have time to look them up. It's fun to spend someone else's money (tee hee) I have learned so much in the 9 months that I have worked here. I mean, I knew a teeny little bit about coins because my step-dad (rest his soul) was a collector, but I never knew HOW much there was too learn. I learn something new everyday! AND that's just about coins - never mind how much I learn on here!

There are some days when I don't have a single person walk thru the door, but then just 1 person can make the whole week!

YAY YAY YAY - just got off the phone with the boss - he LOVED the lamp. AND he said I could have tomorrow off (been working 7 days a week for ages!) He also liked the gold coin I bought. Going to go pick out my floors and counter tops tomorrow! WOOOO HOOO! Oh and the yard really didn't look that bad after the trees were cut down. It actually looked less cluttered!

Good morning everybody! Nippy out again today but due to get to about 48' today. Might take a wander with the pups after I get home. Tonight's dinner will be porcupine meatballs in the pressure cooker, mashed potatoes, and some type of veggie.

Enjoyed my evening with my son last night. I really enjoyed The Hunger Games. Our evening was nearly cut short as he got a call during the movie that they needed him to come into work. Fortunately they found somebody else and we were able to go out for his Chinese dinner as planned. I didn't want the night to end. I miss the brat.

PeggyAnn - You'll have to let me know what you thought of The Hunger Games. I think your dh might enjoy it too. My son didn't tell me until we'd were seated that he'd already seen it so if he was willing to sit thorugh it again it had to be pretty good for the males also. I need to read the books so I know where they're going with the story line. It's got me intrigued.

Lynnette - I use to be like that too. Have you had your vitamin D levels checked? I normally had my annual during the summer so they didn't catch it for years but my vitamin D falls really low in the winter. I now take supplements and it's helped tremendously. Light therapy is supposed to be good too.

Can't remember who but you're from Kokomo, IN! I grew up in Plymouth, IN, so we were almost neighbors. I'm sure it's changed a lot since I was down there last.
