eggy, what a great family you have, and to be able to cuddle with your grand children. I have one grandson that lives in Texas. The last time I saw him he was 8, that was 10 years ago, now he just graduated last week from high school. We only get a picture, wallet size of him every other year, that is all we hear from him, DIL or son. I keep sending gifts to them and Bob gets mad, but that is still my son, don't know why they treat us like this, but I pray they change before something happens to us and we are not here for them anymore. My son is in his 20th year in the Army there. Oh well, life goes on. So glad you had a good visit and will be able to go again in July.
Tammy, A quick move, but maybe once you are there, you will be able to find something that you will be happy with and afford. Prayers go out to you on a smooth transition. Hopefully you can find a job right away.
A beautiful start to the day here, so I'm off to get dressed and get my laundry going. Have a great day,

Janet

Hi all -

Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes for me and my mom. She is home from the hospital and from rehab, and I got back to my home in PA last night. She has a neighbor checking on her every day as well as a visiting nurse stopping in and physical therapist also. She is doing pretty well for her age.

Angela - I shipped your swap package on 5/31. Please let me know when you get it. Thank you for being so patient!

I'm not even going to try to catch up on all I have missed in the past 5 weeks - I'm just gonna go forward from here!

Hugs,
Luanne

Hello everyone,

I had a bad weekend, I started getting sick Sat. night and I still feel like I got run over by a truck.

My throat is so sore so I took some pain pills, I don't like to use them, but when you can't even swallow your own spit ya got to do something. Went to the Doc. today and all he said was baterial and gave me some antibiotics. So we go from here and hope things are better tomorrow.

Peggy you have yourself some mighty handsome boys there. I bet they do keep you on your toes when they are around. Your granddaughters are so beautiful. I love my grandsons, but can't wait to get a little granddaughter. It just seems there is so much more you can make and buy for girls. I am so happy you had family time, it is so important to keep in touch.


Luanne, I am so happy your mom is at home and you are at home. I pray all goes well for mom and she continues to grow stronger in body and soul.

Janet, I am so sorry that you and your son are pulled apart. I bet you go nuts not being able to see them or keep in touch by phone. I also hope things mend before something happens, I will keep you all in my prayers.

Tammy, glad mom got to go home and praying she contiunes to get better. Enjoy your summer time.

Julie, your aprons are so cute. I need to get some more aprons made, but I am busy working on a fourth of July wreath made with material. When I get done I will put a pic. on for everyone to see.

Good News, I get my grandsons for a week, my oldest daughter is in the National Guards and she has 2 weeks to put in this summer. So the other grandmother gets them for the first week and I get them for the next week. Happy dance goin on here, just in my head since I am sick. I can hardly wait

Well better get off of here and try to get some sleep, best medicine is sleeping I think.

All you girls take care and will talk at you later.

Peggy, Thank you for the wonderful giveaway. I was surprised to have won, but very glad I did. The book sounds interesting and I am looking forward to reading it in between all that is going on now. Again, thank you.
Since I got up so early today, with the birds, I am tired now and going to bed. Will catch up with you tomorrow,

I'm BAAAAA-AAAACK...did ya miss me?(didn't know I was gone did ya?Admit it,go'on)hahaha
Our phone line was disconnected up the street somewhere. So we had no phone,no puter,no Netflix....
Then Hubby's SUV went in to the shop last Tuesday....and we still don't have it back. Luckily the master cylinder is still under warranty...but the brake job and all this labor.....*i-yi-yi*...
don't wanna think about it!
So the phone guy fixes the phone at 11 this morning...but the puter&Netflix wouldn't come back on. So DH spends all day trying to figure it out and calling the help(less) desk a couple different times...and at 5 PM(yes...PM) we have it all fixed. Poor guy is brain-dead...oh...waitand that's different from the other days...how? hahahahaha. Naw...he's a good and HANDY guy to have around.
We had some good bonding time,like the old days before TV and all the electronics that clog up our lives and drive people apart.
So....I had lots to read on here.
Lynette, so sweet of you to help your niece out financially. What a great Auntie. WOW! crazy dust storms. Reminds me of the stories DH would tell me of the sand storms they had in Saudi. Scary to me.Thanks for sharing those pics. Awwwww, so sorry to hear that you are sick now. Feel better soon. Yes, sleep is the best healer.
Alyce, so sorry that you didn't get the house you wanted.
Miranda, congrats on the closing.yeaaaa!
RFMTammy, hooooray, hubby got the job!
Man, all kinds of good news while I was away.
ND from MI...there's a BIG change to get use too. I'm all giggly inside for you!
Oh Kimberly, that is good news. Praise God!
TLTammy, wow, God is moving fast in your behalf.I'm glad for you.Praying for your Mama!
Julie, cute aprons! What is it about aprons that just made you want to giggle....and want more! LOL
I just love them. You can never have too many.
Ruthie,we enjoy tea no matter when it gets here. I feel about tea like my Gr-Granny felt about ice cream. She use to say that she could sit on a snowmound and still eat ice cream. hahaha I say I can sit on a volcano and still drink hot tea. *giggle*
Peg, great family photos! Cute Grands...happy Grandma!
Janet, Congrats on the book give-away!
Never heard of that kind of Dinner-Cinema! Strange...expensive...but posh! *giggle*
Well, it's late, I'm caught up and I'm tired.
Sleep tight everyone!

Evening porchies,
I do hope you have had a good day. Today we had someone come and look at our acreage. So we will wait to see if they want to buy it. I pray so. But God is reminding me I need to wait quietly to know His will and not mine. It is a journey of learning as well.

Judy so glad you joined us. You know I would hate for our sweet porch mama to have send the porch posse after you...heheheh

Netty so sorry you have been feeling unwell. I pray you are on the road to health again.

Peggy...you have a lovely family. I just loved that picture.

Julie you have such cute aprons. I love aprons. Can't cook without putting one on.

well ladies I just wanted to drop by and say hello. Time for evening tea and a bit of crocheting.

Love to you all
Tammy

Judy, Judy, Judy,

Yes honey you were missed. How could we not miss you and your happy self. Just glad your back on line.

It is funny how much we do depend on all our electronics and how we have really forgotten how to talk to each other.
The people texting are walking around with their heads bowed down, the phone people have their heads bent over to the side talking and what ever else they are doing, and then you have the ones with their ears plugged up with music. There is no eye contact at all, some don't know how to talk unless you are on the other end of a phone line, oh yeah, the ear pluggers are in their own little world of music and don't even know anyone is talking to them.

I will get off my soap box, I sure didn't know I was going to get so wound up, sorry!!

Yes, I am feeling better, I can swallow my own spit now. It is a little sore now that the sun has went down, other then that just a little tired. I still don't know what it was, but it drug me down a tad bit.

We had a young man get killed in a car wreck Sat. night. He was only 37 years old. No alcohol or drugs were involved and he was still alive when the cops and ambulance got there and he talked to them and gave phone numbers to contact family and when he laid down he died. So odd how things can happen like that.
During the funeral I am going to babysit for the family so will have a little guy around for a few hours tommorrow. I bet he will be a little pistol, not quite 2 years yet. FUN Ha

Everyone take care and talk at ya all later!!

Oh, Netty, that is a tragic thing to happen to someone so young. My heart goes out the the family. That is so kind of you to babysit for the little boy. Hope you get a good nights rest so you have alot of energy to keep up with him!! LOL!!!
Planted my peppers and tomatoes today, so now my whole garden is planted and happy. Looks nice with everything sprouting. I put up some chicken wire for my peas to climb. I also got caught up with my laundry from camp, so no more smoky smelling clothes laying around.
I am tired and ready for bed. Have a great evening,

Dh got his SUV back today! yeaaaaaa! Wasn't suppose to until tomorrow, but the repair guy told him to come and get it and he could pay tomorrow. Man-O-Man...I DO NOT want to see that bill. I'm scared. hahaha He's had it 8 days. He called my moms before I got there to tell me that he was going to walk up and get it. I just knew he was going to have to take my car to work again tomorrow. That's why I went to see her today. It's been awhile since I'd seen her. I was going thru Mommy withdrawl. I walked thru her door with some groceries and she says,"Guess what?" I said,"I don't care....give me some hugs...I've missed you so much!" We hugged and hugged and giggled like little girls. We are so funny! Then she told me he called with the news. I clapped my hands and jumped up and down with joy,I was so excited! hahaha It's amazing how much we rely on our cars isn't it? Mom says,"Now you can come back tomorrow and we can go shopping!" What a Mama! hahaha We just might too.
Well, I'm beat. I think it's more stress than actually tired. What a week we've had!
G'Nite Gals! Love Yuns!

Judy...of coarse we missed ya funny girl but Patsy came on and told us about your puter and car problems and so, I didn't send out the posse to drag ya back by your ears. LOL
Glad everything is fixed now!!! We aren't good without our electronics are we????

Ya all might have to send out the Posse on me in the next month and a half as I have to pack to move. Just found out yesterday that we got the Apartment that we had put in for. It is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath and a 1000 square feet. It has a deck and storage unit. So, I am pretty happy.
Not looking forward to packing again...I am beginning to feel like a professional Mover. ha ha! Except I make no money doing it...and it's hard on the ol' bod.
One good thing is, is that DH never got his boxes unpacked...so, he's basicly ready to go. All he ever packs is his bedroom and office, I do all the rest.

Thank you Janet for the compliments on my family. They are my life!
Hope you all will pray for my grandbaby Naomi...the little one. Her fever still has not broke after 7 days. Monday they put her in the hospital and she is still there. They are running every kind of test imaginable on her. The have ruled out a lot of the really serious stuff but so far they do not know what is causing her fever and rash.

I mailed your book out today Janet. Hope you enjoy the read.

Luanne...yours went out yesterday. Yes, the move is really sudden but one we need to make financially. So, now I get to down-size for the 5th time.

Ruthie Ann...before I forget I got your pretty card, red flower tuck, and yummy tea. Thanks so much sweet sister. I was about to send the Posse out on you too but remembered you were busy trying to get your tea-bags out...so I cut you some slack. LOL!

Netty...thanks for thinking my boys are handsome. I do too...but I'm their mother.

Do you know what made you sick? There sure seems to be a lot of stuff going around. Kind of makes ya wonder sometimes...if some one is testing chemical or biological stuff on us.
This day and age you just never know.

We are starting to see some of the debree from the Japanese Tsunami washing up on our coast line. They warned that if you saw tennis shoes and such not to pick them up because they could have a foot in them. Gross!

That was so sad about that young man who died. He was just too young. Two of my boys are close to his age. His family must be devestated.

Teacher Tammy...thanks for the compliment on my family. After raising three boys...it is fun to have granddaughters. I loved having boys though...I am kind of the strange mom who loved bugs, snakes, worms, lizards and all the outdoor type stuff...but my boys hated that kind of stuff. LOL They were city slickers from the word go.
But they did love that I was always outside pitching baseballs to them, playing basketball with them (even tho I am a shrimp) and playing soccer with them. I was a Den Mother and an Indoor Soccer Coach. Went hiking with them. But it is fun now getting to do the girly stuff with the granddaughters.
Except when we were in the park in Seattle on Sat. Madeline saw a worm in the ground and she didn't know what it was. So I told her it was a worm, and I asked her if she wanted to hold it. She said no. So, I said well Grandmama will hold it. So, I picked it up and held it on the palm of my hand. Then I asked her again if she wanted to hold it...and she said Yes.
So i gave it to her and she thought it was so cool! And she said it tickled her hand. I thought her mother might have a heart attack...so, I gave Madeline so handsanitizer when we were done with our worm holding. But she couldn't wait to tell daddy what her and ganmama did.

OK...I am tired. More rain headed our way tomorrow. We are suppose to have a very wet day. Today was nice and I took full advantage of it.

More later...my pretties,
peggy

Good Morning all
This has been the first week of summer school. It is now Thursday and finally everything is running smoothly. Well...... smother. LOL When working with teenagers I don't think anything runs really smooth!

My youngest has found a place and will be moving out this month. :( I have mixed emotions about this :) She will be close, still in the same town so that is good. I know she needs to grow and be out of the nest but it was nice to have her hear.

Ruth Ann Sorry for your loss. You have been and will still be in my prayers.

Miranda Awesome news on the house.

Lynette this month :( there will be tears but also joy. :)

Angela I am so sorry for all the stres. You really do sound depressed. I get just like you when the depression hits. Usually I can work out of it if I make myself do something each day or small things every couple of hours. Then i get things done and don't have that guilt whirlwind of activity.

Alyce I know I'm behind but I hope all goes well with the realtor.

Peggy I love that quote. I have a thing for waterfalls. Every time I see one I think of God carving that waterfall out jst so I can see it. Ok So everyone can see it, but I am in awe of His handy work.

janet I love camping I hope you have a great time.

Kimberly so glad to hear from you. i have been praying for you. I miss taking my kids to places like that. Those are such wonderful memories. Even if they do wear us adults out.

TLTammy congrats on the new car.

Well I have only caught up to page 526. I need to get off and get things done before I have to go to work. Hope all of you have a great day.

Good Morning Ladies! Looks like everyone is busy and keeping their spirits up. I went to my class yesterday so hopefully I'm done with all this training stuff. STILL trying to clean house. I don't think this will ever get done. Just when I get on a roll some activity comes up and I have to stop. Or regular housecleaning like dishes and laundry take up too much time. And of course coming on here and reading what everyone is doing. I'm working on another apron for DD. She said she needs a "goin ta town" apron. She's cute. It's nice and cloudy here right now. I hope it stays that way. It's too hot already.

Hey everyone,

The parents just came and got their little boy. He is so cute, looks just like his mommy and he is one of those little BIG boys. I had a hard time taking just a few steps with him. We sure had fun tho. He is only 2 yo and he knows sign language for "more and please" he knew another sign but can't remember now. I think a lot of the mothers are now teaching sign to there kids because they can do that before talking. Very interesting I thought.

Tomorrow I am getting my Grandsons, happy happy dance. I can hardly wait. We get to keep them until the 16th, so if I am not on here very much this is why.

Peggy,
The Doc. did say it wasn't strip throat, so not sure what I have. It is funny, my head still hurts a little, when I talk my voice comes in and out. So what ever it is it's hanging on for dear life.
I have moved so much I don't envy you any on this move, just glad it helps with the money situation.
And about picking up the tennis shoes and maybe a foot in it, now that is just double gross. Will the state hire people to go out and pick things up or what? I cannot imagaine all those things washing up it is so sad for everyone involved.

My husband went out to do a test run on cutting wheat. It sure looks like it is ready, but not in very good condition. This spring when we needed rain we missed it, so the wheat did not put on very good heads.
Like I tell my husband, God will provide and we have to have the faith.

That is all I can think of right now, so everyone take care and will be talking back at ya later.

Wow, it's been busy...everywhere! I often lurk, but a lot of times I don't have time to post/reply. This is the first night I've been home all week, and I get to spend it cleaning - yay. How fun. (Not really lol) I was trying really hard to stay on top of my cleaning schedule, but when I'm gone 6 out of 7 nights, it's hard. And I'm way too lazy in the morning to do it! I like my sleep! lol

Praying for everyone who needs it, sending out hugs & happy thoughts. You guys are in my thoughts often :).

So tonight, I went grocery shopping & spent a lot of money! Thank goodness for Mom lending me some! I have to make some dainties for a shower on Saturday, then I thought if I was organized enough, I could make a few crockpot meals (so far it's looking like 2, maybe I'll find something else to make) & some bread (along with the 4 other recipes I have for the shower. No one really said how much we had to make, and it's better to have too much than not enough). Now I have to clean the kitchen, the bathroom & vacuum floors. Doesn't sound like much, but I'm pooped today. Thursdays kick your butt a lot, I find. Can't even save any of it for tomorrow, since I don't know when I'm going to be home :s. Oh well. Get it done & over with, and then I can sit (or go to bed :p).

Talk to ya'll later.....wish me luck on getting things done!

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

Busy is the thing now days.
Peg great looking family you have there.
My GDD needed a bit of bailing out as the dog ate her glasses and she has been having shortened hours due to ankle problem and just lack of work.
My DS needs prayer for a new job. The old one, over 15 years in the health care industry, is taking its toll and they are not good about raises. We are redoing his resume tomorrow.
Hi Pam good to hear from you and I have found that about Thursdays.
Netty too bad about the wheat but He will most definitely provide.
Busy again tonight so Hugs to all I have not mentioned, I am thinking about you in any event.

WOW! Only $575.00 for all that work and labor on hubby's SUV. I'm so glad it wasn't more. I was sweating bullets.hahaha I mean...labor alone will sink a ship and they had it 8 days. Of course they let it sit while they waited for the master cylinder(which was still under warranty)to come in....but still, brakes too! ~whew~
Mama was under the weather today so we are doing our running tomorrow....hopefully.
I saw hay getting it's 1st cutting today. HAY...in the first part of JUNE! Unbelievable!
Well, I'm off to bed. G'nite Gals!

A quick note before I get ready for work. Judy, great that it did not cost you and arm and a leg for the car fix. They can cost so much, just think of the money we would save without a car.
Peggy, good luck with the move again. I hope this one will be your last for awhile. It gets harder as we age, especially when you are doing the brunt of it. That is what I had to do with our moves also, but just think, things do not get broken that way!! LOL!!!
Have a great day,

G'Mornin Gals! Had a rough nights sleep(shoo-shoed a young racoon outta the bird feeder then worried he'd be back to tear it down and use it for "take-out").hahahaha But here I am. Getting ready to call Mama and see how she feels and see if she's ready to shop.
It's so nice to have my car back. I know i keep saying that...but...it's sooooo nice to have my car back! ROFL
THanks Jan! Yeah, we'd probably be rich if not for cars! Right?
Make it a Great day Gals....whatever you do today!

Hi girlies,
Just stopping for a minute. Had a busy day. This house thing is keeping my head a spinning and we were at bank. We had someone who looked at our house and basically thought it was junk...hurt my feelings a bit. It is an old farm house that has had much love and is in better shape since we have lived it in than it would have before. We have been lovingly fixing it up. I did manage to not open my mouth to say something unkind...I am quite sure God had His hand there. But still I was like really..you give it some more love..

So the day got away from us. Just wanted to sit a spell and now I think I will have some tea and crochet. So relaxing. I am working on a scarf. I will try to post a pictrue of my progress in the next few days. I am really loving the color of the yarn.

Yall have a good night. See Judy I am here dear. I am flat scared of the porch posse..hahahahahha
love to you all
Tammy

Tea is like being in the stars with God.

Hi Tammy....I'm glad you're here. Wow! People can be so unkind! If they didn't like the house....they should have just said,thank you for your time, and left. HOW WUDE!!! lol We live in an old 1920's house and I'm sure someone would think it was junk too. I would have to tell them that it is a handyman's fixer-upper. If ya don't want to work on it, don't buy it. All older homes need work ...that's life...right?
Man, I have never seen this thread this quiet.

Hello My Porchies...

Well, thank you all for your prayers for my little granddaughter. She is still in the hospital. She has a team of Dr's working on her. A Pediatric Specialist, an Infectious Disease Specialist and a Cardiovascular Specialist. They have determined that she has Kawasaki Disease. No...I am not joking...that is truly what it is called. They are unsure what causes it but it originated first in Japan. Has now made it to Hawaii and the NW.
It is a rare childrens disease that affects children 5 yrs old and under. If the break-out of the disease is caught with in the first 2 wks of break out (high fever and rash)they can almost guarantee that it can be irradicated...by giving a medication drip for 36 hours. If it does not break the fever and rash in that time period they give another 36 hour drip. If the disease is not caught in that 10 day period (and thank God Naomi's was) then they suffer with cardiovascular disease and have an early demise.
I give God all the glory and I am so glad that my kids are good parents...who didn't just take the Pediatricians "Oh, she is probably just trying to fight off a virus." as the final
diagnosis. Or this Grandmama's "Oh, she is probably just teething."

I believe that God is using this to show my son that he needs to get back to a trusting relationship with God. He was very thankful that I had so many people praying for her.

Well, even though we had another horrific day of rain here...my body seemed to acclumate to it fianlly. If systems stay...or even go in and out...after four or five days your body is in less pain and you can at least function.

Tomorrow, I start packing. At the same time it looks like my husband will have a FT Work schedule for the next month. Which, that in itself is a God thing, because I can't get hardly any packing done when he is around.

I am tired tonight. I have read all the posts but am too exhausted to answer each individual one. Just know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

big hugs,
peggy
