Howdy Gals!
Peg, another StickyNotes tip: I got tired of retrieving the notes from the bar(the back &forth thing)and I thought, Why don't I just shrink the MJ screen,then leave the sticky notes in the area beside MJ'S?~waalaaaa~ now they're side by side the whole time I'm typing. No more bouncing back 'n forth. So handy!
Netty, I read the other day that pets can get allergies just like we do in spring. I had to laugh at that. I never knew.
When I was growing up,we had a cat that we called Snot-nose, for the same reasons as you said. We found out that she had distemper.
I hope your cat just has allergies. I would have loved to see them playing together. That's funny!
Pets make us laugh, Laughter is the Best Medicine....it's a win-win situation! lol
Well, off to Mama's for the afternoon. Later Gators!

Good morning porchies,
I have brought grilled cheese sandwiches, strawberry lemonade and brownies for lunch. I know a rare thing for me to not bring tea. Hubby wanted some lemonade so sharing with yall.

I just got done cleaning my house and now finishing up laundry. I love the smell of fresh and clean in my house. Hubby is doing a few honey do jobs we had to put off until school was out well now school is out so I said we best get on these..hahahahha He said no rest for me is there and I said nope.


Jax my sweet pup is loving me home. He doesn't let me out of his sight. He has a little spot all his in my room where I have tea and things. Cracks me up. He sleeps with one eye open to keep an eye on me.

Well I best skedaddle for now. Dryer is just dinged and then hubby and I will continue on my list.

love to you all
Tammy

Evening, girls!

Ghastly hot and humid today, so of course my "girl time" showed up. Ugh.

Netty, she did not--but Mister and I both are a bit house proud. Been kicking back the past few days!

Tammy, lemonade sounds divine! Thank you!

Nan, I like the way you are tackling this. If that is how they treat you, they can go jump!

Evening My Porchies...

Netty...I had so many times when I would type nice lengthy posts, responding to everyone and then right at the last minute, poof! it was all gone. Would make me so mad...I would wait an entire day before I post again. I think it was Judy who told me about using sticky notes. And it has been a life safer.

Judy...thanks for mentioning shrinking the MJF posts, but I don't mind doing it that way I am.
How was your momma today?

Nan...I still say kill them with kindness and you will be the bigger person for having done so.

Teacher Tammy...Oh, the preverbial honey do list huh? I have never made my husband one because he does nothing around the house except helping with mowing the lawn now. He does half and I do half.
I bet Jax is really growing! About time for another picture of him don't ya think.
Yum, strawberry Lemonade, grilled cheese sandwiches and brownies...thanks !

Alyce...awfully glad I don't have to deal with that monthly problem any more. It is quite delightful...being past all that.

Well, my youngest son and fiance had me over for breakfast this morning. Which was nice. Then I went with them to a Furniture Store where they bought a new bed and their Dad and Me a new dining room table. We needed one but I sure didn't expect my son to buy us one. The kid spoils us like crazy!!! Anyway, I tried talking him out of it but he bought it anyway and it will be delivered tomorrow afternoon. I told them I would fix them Sunday dinner for the next 50 yrs. LOL It is just what I had been wanting but was waiting for them to go on sale...which they did but not nearly as low as I had seen them before. It has a bench that sits two on one side and then 4 other chairs. It is really perfect for family dinners. The table I have now seats two and I will just move that out on to the Porch.

I am very tired tonight. Weather changing to rain starting in the morning and going all week. Yuck!

Night girls....more gab tomorrow,
peggy

Hi all -

I've been MIA for almost a month - sorry I haven't kept in touch. My Mom had heart surgery last Thursday, so I am at the hospital from 8:00 a.m. to about 7:00 p.m. - plus an hour commute morning and night from her house to the hospital. She is doing OK considering she is 83 years old. She is still very weak and sleeps a lot, but hopefully she will bounce back enough to be somewhat independent. that's what she really wants.

Angela - I promise you I haven't forgotten our swap. It's just almsot impossible to do any shopping with the schedule I'm on right now. The hospital isn't even near any stores I could quickly run out to. I will get something to you just as soon as things calm down a little.

Hugs to all -

Luanne

Louanne. Praying for you.
Ladies, I have scouted all the used book stores for how to stuff. In reality it did not look that difficult if I just figured it out more or less before starting, how I needed to end up. But believe me when I say that you always wind up doing it differently than what you first envisioned. So always save those receipts for the stuff that you will wind up returning when you get other stuff ;>). Those SharkBite fittings that Home Depot sells are great but spendy. What I have done in the past is to cut and glue up all that I could of the CPVC stuff outside. That way the fumes do not do me in. Then I make the final connections with the SharkBite stuff and that saves me $$$.
The men at church offer to help but they really do not have the time to do that. So I had to figure it out on my own.
The flea market was great. I will do that again very soon. Not every Sat. too much for DD and I. But maybe every other week. He really liked having us there, we always look GOOD! That lures them in.
Blessings all. Off the Torah classes tonight.

Happy Sunday Girls!
RuthAnn is our "TeaBags" tea hostess for May BTW!Are ya "on it" Ruthie? *giggle* I totally forgot about it until I looked at the calendar today. The 20th??? Accckkk! It's almost June!!
Hi Peg, thanks for asking about Mama! She had made a pan full of spanish rice from a carton of plain rice I had given her. It came with chinese food and I never eat it. She likes to make heavenly rice with it. But this time she made spanish rice. I hadn't had that in years. Man did it hit the spot. Then we sat out on her balcony and watched traffic and people and drank coffee. She has a 9th floor apartment,facing north, so you can see a lot of Canton from there. There was a slight breeze so it was nice despite the 84 degrees and full sun that can make town unbearable. Lots of blacktop and concrete there. She really misses the country,but at 84 it's just not possible anymore.Like I always say, I hope&Pray that if I live to be 84,Lord willing,i hope I'm half as spry as that special lady.
Well DH is off today thru Wednesday, so we cooked out on the patio today. Nothing much...burgers,mom's tater salad,macarini salad and baked beans and lemonade.(she makes stuff and gives it to me hahaha yes I got the spanish rice too) It got pretty warm today. 85 Tomorrow is suppose to be only 80 so we are going to Amish country for the day. Then we'll put some flowers we bought into hanging pots and patio pots to decorate the patio and sidewalks.It always does a heart good to watch flowers go through their different stages all summer and fall. Amen?
Well, later Gators!
Time for a shower and movie.

Evening ladies,
It was a beautiful day here in Nebraska. We got a bit of rain last night so good for the crops and things. Air this morning smelled so fresh.
Hubby and I finished up the to do list. Today I shampooed my carpets and he fixed a door to my room and hung some blinds for me. So my house smells like summer now.
Tomorrow hubby is going out of town for few days for work so I am going to have house to myself and am planning on relaxing. After getting some much needed things done around house time to sit and just be sounds appealing.


Peggy that is so sweet about your son getting you your table. I think that is just the neatest thing how he spoils you.

Well ladies I am pooped so I am off to have some tea and read for a bit.
love to you all

Hi Everyone
Lynette I remember those days. i have six kids. If I did not do 1 or 2 loads a day, I would not be able to find the washing machine. It would be buried under a mountain of clothes. LOL So glad they are grown and on their own. All except the youngest DD she is still home, but does her own laundry.

TL Tammy thanks for the lemonade. I love lemonade but just don't make it enough.

Luanne Praying for your momma. Hospital are no fun.

It is warm but suppose to rain. In fact the whole week just goes down hill. But it is headed into Memorial Day weekend, so what did I expect. LOL Peggy can you send some sunshine this way. It is almost June. LOL

Ruthie Ann, if you're short people on your swap, let me know. As long as it's not one that you have to make, I can join :).

Netty & girls who use a different "sticky note" or wordpad: Does it work if you hit "control z" to undo? I don't think I've ever had that problem, unless I accidentally hit to close the window :s.

Tea_Lady_Tammy - that sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing! Glad your house smells like summer now :). Isn't it nice to have things done & be able to fully relax?

Peggy Ann, that is so nice of your son & his fiancee to buy you a new dining room table. I hope you enjoy it!

Luanne - hope your Mom gets better soon!

Dianne - it's our long weekend (Victoria Day) & Friday, Saturday & today were kind of cool & rainy-ish (not consistently, just threatening). It did rain on Friday night/Saturday morning. Yesterday was beautiful out. I should have done my laundry then, but I didn't. Of course, the weather is bleh because of the long weekend. At least it's not snowing lol. I heard in Alberta they had snow on Saturday I think it was.

Kinda busy today. Got home from house-sitting around 11 & was going to plant my "garden"....but I don't have anything for drainage in the bottom of the containers. And I don't feel right just going out to the few gravel pits (I think they are for the highways, I don't know) taking some. If I knew I wouldn't get caught doing it, I would probably do it lol. But oh well. I'll get it soon!

I decided to make some bread today .... it's not ready yet, but whenever it is, there's a loaf here for all of you! It makes 4, which is more than I usually make, but I figured with the freezer, it's alright lol. Then I decided to make some potato soup with my leftover potatoes from 2 weeks ago (yikes!). It tastes alright, but it's not my "usual". I think because the potatoes were garlic roasted & I usually just use plain. Did up my dishes and did some laundry - I need to fold up the rest of it & put it away now....

Oh, I was watching a few interesting shows yesterday -Victorian Farmers (kind of like Pioneer Quest was up here in Canada)& To Make A Farm. And the best thing was, there were no commercials :). But both shows were really interesting. I'm going to have to keep an eye on them & see if they air online...and get a cable hook-up from my computer to my tv! lol

ETA: On To Make A Farm, there was this one couple that had animals, and they had 2 ducks named "duck duck" because that one thought she was a duck & "chicken duck" because this one thought she was a chicken & abandoned Duck Duck to be with the chickens - it was so cute! I thought if I ever get ducks & chickens (unlikely but you never know what God has planned, right?) I would name them something fun like that lol.

Well, I better go & do some more stuff before I run out of energy & motivation lol. I have 2 loads of clothes to fold up & other ones to check. Bread should be ready in about 2 hours (Finally!!)!!

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

Evening ladies. It's been unbelievably busy of late. I started the new job! Tomorrow will be my first night on my own. I don't foresee any problems. I'm pretty excited to do it by myself so I can start to get my own system figured out.

My son was home on leave last week. I only got to see him 2 days. We had fun though. Wednesday night we had the customary homecoming meal of pizza burgers (family recipe) and taco salad. Saturday night we grilled venison backstrap since he'd never had venison and then went down to Greektown Casino. It's the first time I've ever been to the casinos in Detroit. Wow, great spot to people watch. I think we spent about $20 each on the machines and then listened to a band in one of the bars and people watched. Yesterday he flew back to Texas. We left just before he did and went to df's sister's for a BBQ and for df to fix her lawnmower. Enjoyable day but I got sunburned.

Friday night df had a surprise phone call from a company he'd applied to about 2 months ago, did an hour long phone interview with, and then got an email several weeks later stating they were going to continue their search for somebody with more ag experience. They called and the supervisor that he'd interviewed with gave his resume to the service department supervisor and told them to call him for a manager's position. He was all set for another hour long interview today but the supervisor shocked him and told him he wasn't going to bother, he was going to have his secretary call him tomorrow and set up a flight for him to come out and interview with him face-to-face and they're paying for a rental car too. The guy also told him that if df wanted he could set him up with a real estate agent to looking for housing. Are we reading to much into this that he's probably going to get a job offer? Did I mention the company is in North Dakota!!!!!! They want him out there immediately if they make an offer. They're willing to give him 2 weeks to finish up his job here but if he gets the offer that we anticipate it looks like I'll stay here and pack up and get things on this end ready and he'll find a place for us out there without me. Our heads are swimming at how fast this could go down!!!! Trying not to get too excited but it's hard. I feel horrible about taking this job and possibly having to quit so soon if this goes down.

Well I need to get my jammies on and try to calm down a bit. It's going to be hard to sleep if I don't lol I'll catch up with everybody tomorrow when I've had time to absorb all this. Have a great night everybody!

Tammy, that is great news. Praying that all goes well and you will be able to move. I know you both have been wanting this for a long time. Summer would be a good time to move.
Our tulips are just blooming here now, alot later than most areas in the country. My lily of the vallies are ready to pick, so hope to get out tomorrow to do that. My seeds I planted are starting to pop out of the ground now. That is a great sight to see. I love spingtime when everything is coming back to life.God is good.
Patsy, geocaching does sound like it would be fun. Hope you enjoy it.
I am tired, so heading to bed. Have a great evening,

My New Table From My Son! Nicest table I have ever owned! I just love it!

Mornen Porchies...I would have been on here an hour ago but I had to make and place my order for the 50 State Postcard Swap.
I love doing that swap.

Luanne...praying for your moma...at her age it is going to take her a long time to bounce back and be on her own again. Praying it will happen quicker than anyone can believe!

Cherime...glad to hear that the Flea Market went well for you. That is always a good thing.

Judy...yum on the Spanish Rice. My hubby asked me to make some this week (and I always make what he wants) but I have really been hungry for my home made spaghetti...so, I win this time! LOL I made the sauce today but we will have it tomorrow.
Today was payday and we treat ourselves to dinner out on each of our paydays.

Teacher Tammy...sounds like you are off doing all those busy things on your "honey do" list too. I love when the house smells Summer Fresh airing out all those stuffy smells from winter.
I know isn't my son just the greatest!
Wanted you to know that I finished The DressMaker and I really enjoyed it!! So, if it is on your reading list...get it!

Dianne...would love to send you warm sunny weather...but I think we are sending you the rain. It rained all day yesterday and suppose to do the same thing all week. Yuck!!! And Double Yuck!!!!!

Pam...you sounded really busy. Your home-made bread sounds good! Thanks for leaving us some on the Porch.

Patsy...I have heard of geocaching before, as they do it here in Washington State and Oregon too. Probably all over the Country. Sounds like a Blast!!! In my younger days (like in my 40's when I still hiked a lot) I would have thought that was just the coolest thing to do. Let us know what you girls think after you try it. Great excercise and maybe a little surprise to boot!

RFM Tammy...Wow girl, isn't that just how things happen? You think you make the right decision and then right out of left field you are totally confused with even more options.
Crazy World We live in. You will have to do what I decided and just "Live One Day at a Time"...decide to live in the moment and enjoy what today brings because tomorrow maybe turned upside down and side-ways. Who knows from one day to the next???

Janet...our tulips are long gone. Enjoy yours...they leave all too quickly. I have been taking pictures of all the flowers in this yard because I know we won't be here very much longer. This is such a beautifully established yard. I am just enjoying it everyday as long as i can. I LOVE EVERY KIND OF FLOWER!

Today...even though it rained...I didn't feel too bad Fibro wise. So, I made my spaghetti sauce, did 3 loads of laundry and did a lot of on-line business and straightened the house up a bit. I keep it pretty clean so just really have to pick up after hubby.

Have a wonderful Tuesday Girls and
Be a Blessing to Somebody today!
Hugs,
peggy

Hi Porchies,

Tammy, that is fabulous and amazing and encouraging! Wow!

Luann, praying for you momma too, and for you. This is hard on you.

Just wanted to tell you I'm better today. On Friday, a co-worker took me to a late birthday lunch at our favorite Thai place and she told me this absolutely huge revelation:
God loves me regardless of being messy. Messy is irrelevant. am not a guilty person because I am messy. I am not judged because I am messy. It is not a sin to be messy. I know, sounds sort of silly, but when she said it, I finally realized that was what I thinking and had been thinking all my life. What a concept. All messy is is darned inconvenient. And that's all.

That was a big help. Then yesterday I met with my prescriber, and we are upping my antidepressant.

It is raining here today. It's just lovely. IT is warmer because it's May, probably in the 50s instead of low 40s, so that's nice. I love rain. I woke up to hear it this morning, it's so comforting. and we need it. My pots were so dry, it was hard to water them. this will help, but I'll have to keep watering.

My friend came over Saturday and we organized my paper zone in the studio. It was piled with art papers big and small, so we have them all organized in the big flats, or hanging on the wall. Now I can pack them easily. There is still a ton of work to do in here, but every time I do something I think, "well, that was easy. What's the big deal?"

Dunno where i"m moving to yet. I'll be interested to see what it will be. I'd still like to have my own place. No arguments with landlords about removing the lawn, say.

I'll be checking in and catching up on all your interesting lives.

I want to apologize up front that I have not checked in sooner... it has been INSANE around here. I happen to have today off since it is my 6th anniversary where I work.

Been a busy day. Went and picked up my new dog... I adopted a Catahoula hound from the shelter where I adopted Newcomb. His listing stated he was a mix, but the lady at they have to say that when the dog doesn't have papers, and the lady at the shelter thinks he might be full blooded. Newcomb, by the way, is VERY mad, but he will get over it. Oddly enough, Train (the dog) is more afraid of Newcomb than Newcomb is of him!!! I'll post pics later, as I am mostly just checking in right now.

We are still working on the house. We were supposed to close last friday but the USDA is going so dang slow that we got pushed to next Thursday. As long as I can move soon, I'll be happy, happy, happy.

Working on utilities, going to start calling propane companies here in a bit. My head is splitting from a combination of allergies and not eating lunch and stress. It will all be worth it, and I just have to keep reminding myself of that.

Anyway, I have more news but not so much time :( Hope everyone is doing well!!! Miss you all much!!!!!

Hi Everyone

The wind is blowing and it is over cast and icky looking. It tried to rain last night but did not really do anything. The whole week is going to be like this. Not much will get done outside and I have a lot to do. Peggy how about sending some nice warm sunny weather my way?

Pam i guess I should not be complaining. At least we did not get snow! Poor Alberta!

Patsy we have freinds that go geocaching. My DH and i keep saying we are going to but so we have not gone. Let me know how you like it. It sounds like a lot of fun.

RFM Tammy I am glad you like the new job.So glad you got to spend time with your DS. Sounds like you had a great time.
Great news about the possible job. Keep us posted.

Peggy I love the table. I will keep asking for warm and sunny! I am with you on the yuck and double yuck on the rain. I am ready for summer!

Nan I will pray for your housing situation. It would be nice to have a place of your own. God will provide. That is what I keep telling myself everytime I get frustrated living in town.

Ihope it clears up a little. i would like to get some things done in the back yard. Oh well

Tammy sounds like some big changes in store for you. North Dakota is doing pretty well as a state. I hope everything works out the way you want.

Not much going on. Had a midterm trust today. Did ok...not great but at least a B. not much energy to do anything but homework and studying. I really miss my sewing room. At least summer is almost here. I'm not taking any classes this summer. I think I'm teaching at least on kids sewing class. They know I'm not thrilled about teaching little kids under 12 so I think they found someone else for the other classes. I would rather teach adults. I need to get my courage up and pi
It together a proposal to possibly teach a beginning sewing class for the adult community classes at the college here. That would be awesome.

Well, time for a nap. Later all.

Hi Ladies...I decided to do another Porch Book Give-Away...Just because it is so much
fun to give stuff away to my friends! So, we will do sign ups Until June 3rd.
This book is about a young woman who comes to America on The Titanic hoping to become
a Dressmaker.

Also, I have another Book Give-Away on my Blog...so, go read my Review and leave me a
message on my blog-site and you just might win two books, who knows!

I will be on here to chat later!

Love and Hugs,
Peggy

Evening ladies,
Just got home from bible study. It is a study I have done before and what surprised me was that I got something totally different out of it and I knew God planted me here for this. This is a new group of ladies I have been with for few weeks now and they have so made me feel like I have always been part of the circle and today we gained a few more ladies. I believe God is got something in mind.

Peggy I have added the dressmaker to my nook list to read as soon as I finish my current reads. It sounds wonderful.

Bunny hope your test went well.

Miranda so glad to see you here for short spell. Praying your house gets closed on soon. I know the whole process can get long but it will be worth it.

RFM Tammy glad about your job.

WEll ladies I am off for some tea to wind down the day. Oh I forgot I learned the double crochet stitch today. I am almost ready to start a project. Iw ill try to post a picture tomorrow if I can get my camera to work.

love to you all
Tammy


Tea is like being in the stars with God.

I had a busy day today, thoroughly cleaned my livingroom and re arranged the furniture. I know I should not do all that, but if I wait for Bob to help, he grumps too much, so I do it when he is at work. It just takes me longer, which is okay. I got it done. Took a hot shower, so hope to wake up with no aches or pains in the morning. I will catch up with you all tomorrow. Have a great evening,

This is my newest fur-baby, Train. I got him as a rescue. He was listed as a Catahoula Leopard Dog Mix, but I believe that he may be a purebred Catahoula (and I have always referred to them as Catahoula hounds).

If anyone is curious, no, he did not make the stain in the back of my truck, that was already there when I bought it, haha! And the stick is just so I can hold the back hatch open.

He's doing very well, considering. He's a bit scared of the cats, but like Penny a lot (he was apparently brought in with a small dog, so that makes sense). He loves Josh, and has already started figuring out, I am his Momma.

Got a lot done today... setting up my insurance, got the electricity started, and the internet, got my DirecTV set to move. Now all I have to do is look into propane and get the water turned on, and we're set. As long as we don't have to reset our closing date again.

Wish us luck, y'all!!!

Good evening Gals! Well, yesterday didn't go quite as planned because we got a late start and had to run an errand first. So we went to Hartville instead, which is more of a Mennonite town instead of Amish country. It use to be Amish before they all moved farther south. But we still had a nice day with great weather. They built a new Hardware there that is so big that it houses a couple of full-size...well....houses inside of it. Amazing! When we first went inside I saw a 1 room log cabin and thought...hmmmm....Lincoln's home? Then when I went toward the back to look for DH(he always wanders off*giggle*)I saw a house. What in the World!!! Hubby said there was another one behind it.I guess it was to advertise their wares. Strange.You could walk thru them as if you were ....well....home! lol
Then we went to their indoor/outdoor fleamarket and to the Hartville Kitchen for supper. It was a great day out for us. When we came home we planted some flowers and all the tiny tomato plants I started indoors. They all did well. We covered them with deer mesh so the ornery grackles and bluejays would leave them alone. They just love to snip off seedlings just for the sport of it. *giggle*
This morning we finished planting all the posies. Then it sprinkled for about 20 minutes. Thank You God for watering for us. *giggle*
Tomorrow morning if it stays clear and dry we will decorate our patio for summer. We hang lots of windchimes and summer critters and windsocks on and around the patio and backyard.We enjoy such things all summer and fall.
Well, I'm all in for today.
Goodnite to all!

PS.Mirada, I was writing when you were. So I just had to come back and say what a handsome pooch you got there! lol Love his eyes!
Lucky you...Lucky dog!

Evening Porchies...

Tammy... sign up for my Porch Give-Away of the Dressmaker.
Who knows maybe you will win it and won't have to buy it.
Glad you are loving your new bible study group. And Woot Woot on moving to double crochet. You are ready for a Project girl. A simple dishcloth or neck scarf would be easy and fun!

Judy...can't believe you didn't sign up for the book give away girl. It was a good read and nothing naughty in it at all.

Miranda...never heard of that breed of dog before but he looks like a Sweetheart! Love those eyes! Beautiful! Why the name Train?

Janet...you sound like me, if I want something moved I just do it while hubby is gone. Takes longer but there is no hassle that way and I don't end up getting mad at him or visa versa. Hope you don't have any aches or pains tomorrow.

Boy Ruthie Ann you must be up to your ears in cleaning out...since we haven't hardly heard from you. Come on take a break...you deserve it.

Bunny...aren't you soooooo ready for summer and a break from all that homework??? I would be. How did the pet volunteering go? And how is your strawbale gardening going?

Today, hubby and I paid bills and ran errands. Did some much needed shopping, then came home for a couple hour nap.
After that I made my spaghetti and boy was it good. I ate too much because I had been craving it but I enjoyed every mouth full.

Off to read and get some good sleep. I haven't been in terrible pain with this Rain System but really fatigued.

Sleep tight and NO
BED BUGS please! LOL

hugs and loves,
peggy
