Miranda, what a lovely dog you have there. He looks happy. Good luck with closing. Hopefully you will not have to change dates again. Are you packed and ready to go? HEHE
Judy, that must be a big hardware store to fit in 2 houses, wow!!!!! Glad you had a good getaway even though it was not where you were planning. Going out to lunch make it worth it, right?
Peggy, love the new table. It looks so nice there where you have it. I have a round one, huge, and wish I had a smaller rectangle one, but it cost us an arm and a leg, so we are stuck with it for a couple more years, anyway. The spaghetti sounds yummy. I need to make some soon.
Time to get dressed and get the day going. More later,

Peggy, tried 3 times to sign up for your books, but my comments will not publish, for some reason. I would love to read both books. They look like great reads.

Peggy sign me up for the Dress maker book giveaway. I am off to your blog to see what else you been reading. I was going to post a picture of my little room I have for myself and my crochet but my camera is not working right. For the life of me I can't figure out why it isn't. So will have to have hubby take a loook at it and see if he can figure it out.

Time for lunch
love to you all
Tammy

A lot of people have not heard of Catahoula hounds because they're not a widespread breed. They originated in the southland, Louisiana and such. They're awesome dogs, gorgeous and very loyal.

He was a rescue of sorts, and I don't know much about his history, and we kind of think that he might have been abused by his former owners. He shies easily, but he's learning that Josh and I are here to love and take care of him.

His name was Train when I adopted him... I'm assuming for his size and stature. He's slender in the back with a wide massive chest that's typical of a catahoula. Normally people change the names, but it's not a bad name for him. Plus, a good friend of mine was in the southern rock band Blackfoot back in the 70s, and one of their most popular songs was "Train, Train". Lemme tell ya... that song went through my head DOZENS of times when I looked at his Petango profile!

As far as the house, I THINK this is a solid date, but I am asking the realtor just in case. I'll let y'all know more as stuff comes along.

Got a text from Josh... Train tried to sit on his lap and ended up pushing Josh off the couch and onto the floor. Oh, he's going to be fun!

Well, I better finish up some ppwk before lunch... will share more with everyone later!!

Hi everybody -

Mom was transferred from Dartmouth Medical Center to a rehab facility yesterday. She is very weak, and can't walk or get up and down without assistance. We are praying she will gain enough strength back that she will be able to go home. She is so independent, that she hates the thought of having to come and stay with me in PA. Also, I don't know how I can go back to work and still care for her. I guess it will all work out however it is supposed to.

Peggy - I'd love to be part of your book drawing!

Thanks for all your prayers and good wishes.

Luanne

Hey everybody,

It sounds if everyone is keeping busy.

Luanne, I will keep your mother in my prayers that she will regain her strenth to go home. I will pray for you also, I know this is a burden for you also.

Miranda, Beautiful dog!!! I have always liked the bigger sized dogs. His eyes are amazing. If you wouldn't have mentioned the spot, I don't think I would have noticed it anyway. I had to look hard to see it.

Peggy, How nice of your son, I'd say he is a keeper!!

Janet, Hope your not sore from moving things around. I'm like you, just as easy to do it yourself.

Bunny, Glad school will be done for you soon!!

I have had a really bad 2 days. My daughter moved yesterday and it really is bothering me more than I thought it would. I am missing her so much, and every time she calls we get to crying. I know she needs to go and try to do this, but I want her home so bad. (crying)
I feel like a big baby, but we have gotten so close and I am missing her badly.

Thank God I still have 2 kids at home. I think I would be going worse crazy. Also I have you all. As long as I keep myself busy it is not to bad, but if I let my mind wonder, that's when I get in trouble.

Why does life have to be so terrible sometimes??

Well I got to go, talk to ya later. Got family coming in from Wyoming this afternoon so got to go visit.

Good Afternoon All

Bunny Congrats on the "B"!

Janet I wish I had your energy.

Miranda He is adorable. My DD's fiance has a dog that is part catahoula, he is all black but the head is a lot the same as your dog.

Luanne keeping your momma in my prayers.

Lynette every time you think about your daughter give your other kids at home a hug. That is what I did when my oldest moved out. It was harder than I thought it would be. Now the youngest is about ready to go. i will cry with you when she moves out.

There has been some sun but mostly over cast with a cool breeze.

Hi! Girls,
I miss being here on the porch. But life has been busy and sad the week. On Friday evening I lost Gram Helen. Not really sure what I will do with my weekends now. So last Saturday we took Little One to the pet expo. She was spoiled with treats. Then we went lunch at Wendy's of course Little One got a cheeseburger. After lunch we went Lowe's. Little One and I shopped for flowers and garden vegetables. While Dean and Katy went to the pool store. On Sunday we got up early and planted the garden. I have worked this week 24 hours already and today we laid Gram Helen to rest. What a beatiful day it was. Im working tomorrow and going to the dr. for a follow up .
Janet- So gald you like you door sign. I did help paint that one but it came from a diect
sale company. We have like 200 clips. For those baskets.
Peggy=The dog park is a acre fenced area. As far as the bag swap. It doesn't have to be sewn.
Hope everyone is doing well,
Ruthie Ann

Hey Porchies.

I'm back and exhausted. This has been a horrible week. I've been fightin with everyone, includin myself. And I got bad news to boot.

I've been fightin with myself and this almost manic thing. I sit around on the couch mopin, then I jump up and am racin to get everything done at once. Like today, I sat around almost all day just feelin blah. I barely even got dinner done. Then, at 9 at night I've got homemade chocolate sauce goin on the stove, the fridge standin open cause I'm sortin the leftovers to clean it out, and I'm workin up a shoppin list by sortin the cabinets lookin for missin things! What in the world?!?

I've been feelin this way for a while, it just seems to keep gettin worse. And I don't know for sure if I'm just bein snarky, or if everyone in this house is in need of a break. We haven't really done much more than housework and watch tv for like a month now. We haven't had the money or the time to go anywhere or do anything. I don't know if that's it, or if it's just me.

I feel better after these flurries of work, but only for a while. Then it's back to blah. I don't really seem to be gettin much accomplished durin the whirlwinds either. The community garden isn't finished. The porch pots aren't finished. The kitchen still needs reorganized. The boxes of pictures and decorations aren't emptied. Only about half our stuff has been moved over here. The back porch is a piled up mess. The basement is a maze of empty boxes and crates and shelves piled with jumbled up messes.

I'm not really finishin anything and it's buggin the crud out of me!

Then I get a call about my grandma. She fell last week and hasn't really been doin very good. The dr says he thinks her kidneys are bruised and they aren't functionin properly. He gave her a shot and sent her home. He said with her medical history and age, there was nothin else he could do for her. Either they would heal on their own or they wouldn't. She isn't drinkin much, she says she can't eat, and my aunt says she's dehydrated. My aunt is a nurse so she does most of the medical watchin for the whole family. She's there everyday and says there might not be much more time. Grandma was diagnosed with a tumor around her brain stem about 14 years ago, they gave her 5-7 years, so I guess we should be thankful she's had the time she has. It still is drivin me crazy!

I made a gallon of green tea with honey and took it to her. She loves sweet tea and I thought the green tea might help to flush her kidneys and the honey might possibly soothe them some. I know it's graspin at straws, but I had to try. She only drank about a half a cup. I left grandpa with the extra tea bags, the bottle of honey, and directions on how to make more. I'm not sure what else to do.

Then there's this bday party this weekend for my middle DD, my BIL, and me. It's supposed to start at 1 saturday, but hubby's aunt is comin over an hour early. I'm pretty ticked about it. She keeps callin hubby and sayin she needs to talk to him just her and him. I hate this stupid secret stuff. It very nearly split us up once before. She just keeps insistin and he keeps tellin her no, he doesn't do the secret thing from his wife. Then she gets hateful with me and makes lots of snotty comments when she knows I'm around to hear them and hubby isn't. I just know her comin over early is gonna wind up in a fight and ruin this party. It's the first party we had that I'm not doin all the cookin for. I ordered tamales from this great restraunt we saw on 'Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives'. The only thing I'm makin is the potato salad. Hubby's makin all the other sides and doin all the cookin that day. I've waited 15 years for this. I've done my own and the families bday parties since the we got married.

I swear, if she starts in about it I'm throwin her out. I know that will cause a huge fight, but it will be later and not while my whole family is there like last time. We had a cookout and she actually made a bunch of her snotty comments and then suddenly my sister and her family left without sayin bye. I called her after everyone left and she said hubby's aunt had made a really nasty comment about me to my MIL and she heard it. She told her it wasn't appropriate and hubby's aunt snorted and said it was obvious she was cut from the same cloth. So my sister left.

It was a huge fight and nearly 6 months before we managed to get everyone together agian. I won't go through it at this party. It's very special and much more expensive than any party we've ever thrown. Not to mention I'm dyin to try these tamales and I won't have her upsettin me and makin me sick at my stomach. I always get sick when things are goin bad. Not this time. I refuse! I've already told hubby exactly what I plan to do and he said he would totally back me up. He said if she makes a scene or causes problems he won't ever invite her over agian. I just really need this to be a good day. I need things to be easy. I sound like I'm makin excuses or askin for permission. That's not right. I'm standin up for myself. I'm standin up for my family. I have the right to protect myself and mine and I will.

I'm tryin to be more assertive and not let myself get walked on so much. I think my bday is as good a day as any to draw the line. I stood up to my MIL a few weeks ago when she started makin unreasonable demands of hubby's time and now it's time to call a halt to all the silliness and back bitin from everyone. I think someone needs to.

My goodness! I've ranted and rambled a novel here! I'm sorry. I guess I really needed to get some of this off my chest. I do feel a little more relaxed. I think bein worried about the fightin and grandma's health is just too much pressure all at once. We will all get a break of sorts in a few weeks. The girls are goin with my mom to church camp for a week. Hubby and I will have 8 days for just us and he's talkin about takin a day or 2 off from work so we can actually spend some time together. That might be nice.

Well, I guess I really should get myself to bed. Thanks for listenin.

Ruthie Anne, so sorry for your loss of Gram Helen. You are in my prayers.
Angela, It seems you are under alot of pressure right now. Keep telling yourself that this is going to be the best birthday party ever. Relax, take long deep breaths and drink some of that nice tea you make. Hopefully after this weekend you will start to feel less pressured and things will fall into place. I sometimes get that way too, then to get out of that funk, I get going on a project and get it done, then that boosts my spirits and I feel better when something is finally accomplished. Take is some sunshine and watch your garden grow. You will get through this and feel much better soon.
Off to get things put in the camper for next week. Have a great day,

Janet

Oh Angela, I feel for you. As I have found out the hard way, having outside forces trying to interfere in your marriage is a pain in more ways than one! Good for you standing up for yourself, and good for hubby having your back. I will pray for your grandma.

Hi Porchies...

Ruthie Ann...sorry about Gram Helen. Praying for you and yours. I will do the bag Swap. Just let me
know when. And if I send it to you or who?

Angela...girlfriend you sound depressed. That is why you are sitting around and not doing much and
then you feel quilty from sitten all day...so, then you are a whirlwind. But you look around and nothing
seems accomplished or productive or finished and then you start feeling snarky with yourself and others.
Are you on an Anti-depressant? If you aren't...you need to be. If you are you need to talk to your Dr. and have it upped for awhile. I worry about your stress levels and don't want you having another heart attack or a stroke.

Good for you for standing up for yourself and all the family drama. I pray that the Birthday Party is a huge success and a delightful day for all! And don't forget to bring some of those tamales to The Porch. LOL

I am really tired this morning. I am dog sitting again. Even though I love these two dogs it is like
taking care of twin boys. If I just had 1/4th of their energy I could handle them better! ha ha!
My youngest son and future DILove went to Spokane to get away from work. The owner of the company wants
Sadie out of there (and Sadie wants out too) but my son is planning to leave the job also because he is
the Manager and he is sick of the owners tirades and the overall job stress. Two other employees are looking for jobs also. So the Owner is going to be up a creek without a paddle and she doesn't even know
what she has done to her own company. It is so sad. But my youngest son's blood pressure has been at high levels the last two times he was at the Dr.'s He is only 26 and that is a sign to all of us that
he needs a different job for his health's sake.

Well, I am going to see if these two dogs will rest for a bit...so, I can go back to bed for a bit.
I have Bible Study tonight.

Praying for everyone and wishing you all a Wonderful Day!

Love and hugs,
peggy

Hi Gals!
Peg, I thought about your give-away, but I have so many books to read now, mine and Mama's, that I really don't need anymore.That's why I give mine away fter I read hem. Mama gets a regular shipment of Guidepost books delivered every couple of months. I have to give hers back. She saves tem. Dunno why!It's her thang!LOL
Janet, watched them build this hardware and thought,"Man-O-Man, it's gonna be HUGE",and it certainly is! haha I had pork roast, mashed potatoes&gravy and carrots. Their pork is so tender and Yummy!mmmmm
Mirands, you 2 are going to have your hands(and laps)hahaha full with Train! They shoulda named him Bulldozer since he just pushes himself in wherever he wants to be. LOL
Lynette, "Tears Need No Apology!" You miss her, you're close, we all get that. I'm very close to my Mama, so I feel for you. Take heart, you aren't alone!
Ruthie, I'm so sorry for your loss! BIG(((hugs))) Girl!
Luanne,Praying for your Mama's recovery. I know that my mama would hate to lose her independence. She's one tough old bird. lol ...and when people ask her how she is, she always tells them, "Fat and Sassy." She is too! hahaha....Sassy anyhoo!lol
Angela, So sorry to hear about all your stress. Also sorry that it's making you feel bdly about yourself. But it sounds like you have a plan and I Pray that you can follow thru with it. Things will work out.Take time to breath and find quiet moments for yourself! I'm also gladd that your DH isn't backing down from his Aunt pressuring him. He gets a hug and a pat on the back from me for that! LOL
Well, I'm off to get somethig done today. I did all the laundry, dishes,patio decorating and harvested my Chamomile yesterday, so I've just been moving slow today.
It's been in the mid 80's the past couple of days,and is suppose to be in the mid nineties for Memorial day. Ugh! Then drop back down next week to the low 70's...more like it. hahaha
Make it a good day Gals!

Hi ladies! I didn't forget about y'all and hope you haven't forgotten me. I am on a tear of really cleaning out my house. I'm not letting anything get in the way and I actually scheduled what is getting cleaned and when. This way I don't feel so overwhelmed and bounce from different spot to different spot. It has felt so good to take things to Goodwill and say good riddance to it. I'm working on some time management things, too, to make sure I make time for Bible reading and studying. It looks like I will be making the switch in my work schedule the second week of June to a Saturday and Monday schedule with Sundays off. It'll be a world of good for this family. I'm glad I'm finally able to arrange this. We are throwing DD a surprise Kinder graduation party. Today I brought home her ice cream cake and had to hide it in the freezer. Making cupcakes while she's at school tomorrow and hoping to go over to the outlet mall and get her something at James Avery to mark this special occasion. I miss you ladies, but until this house is right, then I'll have to visit a little less.

Patsy- I have done geocaching with my DH. It's a lot of fun. It can be a little frustrating but worth it when you find the treasure.

Miranda- Beautiful dog!

Miranda, great news!!!!! I can imagine how excited you are.
It is so windy here with trees down and north of us there are forest fires that they are having a hard time contolling. One highway is closed right down and the firs is only 65% contained after 4 days. We are in a severe thunderstorm watch right now. I do hope it does rain, I did not get out to water my gardens today and I have to work tomorrow so cannot get to them until tomorrow evening.
Well, need to get off here and get to bed. Have a great evening,

Sweet Dreams,

Morning Girls,

I am so sorry for your loss Ruthie Ann. Grams are hard to let go, my youngest daughter lost her Grams 1 1/2 years ago and she still misses her so much. Keeping you and your family in my prayers.

Angela,
Sorry about your Grams also, keeping her in my prayers also that she may heal quickly.
You know, I cannot believe how some people can be and especially when they are suppose to love you. You just keep your chin up and do what you feel is best to do. Thank heavens your husband stands behind you.
Have a wonderful Birthday and just remember, YOU ROCK!!!

Peggy,
Sounds like you are having a great time with the dogs, just wish your fibro would let up. Is it still raining there? I also start to hurt when rain or snow is moving in. I don't have fibro, it's just getting older I guess. Take care.

Miranda,
I know you can hardly wait to get your new place. I am soooooo happy for you. Dreams do come true!!!! Best of luck on the move.

Janet,
Oh I sure hope they will get the fires stopped before it does to much damage. I tell we are kind of scared about fire here also. It is so dry. The only thing we don't have run away fires like you do. Our firemen have to fight the wind here. I sure hope you got the rain they were predicting!

Julie,
Sure is nice to hear from you!! I know what you mean about needing to get your house in order. I also need to get mine in order and cleaned, mow the yard and weed the garden. It just seems to creep up on you before you know it! I want to get our yard mowed because we live along a hiway and like for it to look nice. So after I get off of here you will know what I'm doing.

Diane,
Good idea about hugging one of the kids at home. I am a lot better now and my daughter is too. We just got closer than we ever thought we would. Just let me know when your baby moves out and I will cry with you. Have a great day today.

Cherime,
Sure am missing you girl. I know we all get busy this time of the year so it is hard to get on here when you want to. Hope all is well up your way.

Judy,
Thank you for the reassuring words. I am just thankful I have you all to talk to, it sure does help!

Well I hope every one has a great Memorial Day Weekend. My family and I are planning on going into town tonight and listen to a local band play and it's FREE!!! Isn't that just great. I am really looking forward to it, we don't get out much anymore, just so darn expensive to take the whole family somewhere, or even if it is just my husband and I going out. I guess we get more family quality time!!

Everyone take care and I wish you all well.

Netty

Hi all. Reorganizing my stuff into a couple of smaller containers so that I can get to shows and stuff easier. Then got the urge to make another necklace from found objects. As soon as it gets a bit warmer I will have to see about some other projects around the house and quit putting off a couple that I just do not want to take on. But someone has to do them and I am the only honey doing drat it all!!!
Peg, take care of yourself. Glad that the dog sitting is going well.
Blessing on that house Miranda. May it be a place of peace and plenty.
Janet, we finally got some rain and that was good. The fire danger was pretty high. Praying for that to be contained and the wind to stop.
Blessings all! Have a wonderful weekend. Praying for all those with family in harm's way and thanking God for the sacrifice of those who went before.
Hugs all!!!

Just wanted to pop on & say Good Morning to all of you! I'm headed out to my cousin's so we can plant the garden. It's a little chilly out - only +5C/40F, and it might rain later...but right now it's not. So we're going to plant the garden today (finally! Last Sunday was a perfect day for planting, but my cousin had to work). At least then it will be done! As long as it doesn't freeze...I'm also getting some rocks for the bottom of my patio planters so I can start planting my garden. Let's hope it works! Not sure when I'm going to get mine done, as I'm busy today, and it's supposed to rain tomorrow...but we'll see what happens :). Maybe it won't :p. Have a great day ladies!

Good morning sweet things,
I do hope your day is off to a beautiful and blessed start. It is sunny here although a bit sticky here in Nebraska. But can't complain.

Some of my older children are home this weekend. So we are enjoying the weekend. I am getting ready to make spaghetti and garlic bread for lunch. I am still on school schedule for lunch. My body hasn't quite gotten used to summer yet.

Peggy take my name off your drawing for dressmaker. I haven't had time to read the last book you sent yet. I will leave it on my noook list. It may be a while before I get to read it. I am still in the middle of Prayers for Sale. HOpe you are feeling better today.

Alyce...will keep you in prayers about Tuesday with realtor. That is exciting.

An update on my son in law. His cancer is not treatable with chemo or radiation. But it is the least reoccuring and most curable. So for the next five years he will go in every two months for blood work to check for tumor markers and chest xrays. Every three months for scans. If they find any cancer they have to do surgury. His scans and things this week came back clear. I think God knew he couldn't handle the chemo and they didn't have the money for the treatment. My stepdaughter did not see this as a blessing. I did. After five years if there have been no reoccurances or complications he will be considered in remission and then do tests yearly. After five more years he would be considered cured. I think God is so good.

Well I best go get lunch started before the gang comes in and asks me what i been up too.
have a beautiful day sisters
love to you all
Tammy
