Pam, I love first fruits!
They are exciting and the most satisfying. Enjoy your first berry!

Hello My Porchies...
We have been having FUN!!! Miss Madeline said today "Ganmama I want you to stay for a year because we
Love you!" Naomie has learned how to say Ganma which is so cute since she just turned one. She doesn't warm
Up to people easily but she finally loves her ganma and wants to come to me all the time. It has taken an entire year but was well worth the wait. It is amazing how two little girls have their grandmas whole heart. Hook line and sinker. I raised 3 boys and always thought I was better with boys...but I am loving having girls to spoil. I think their parents are going to need to lock them up about the time they turn 12. They are so pretty and both strong willed girls.

Hope you all forgive me for short posts and not addressing each of you but typing with one finger on my Kindle
Fire is time consuming and so very slow. I am reading all your posts and keeping up on your lives.

Hugs
Peggy

Happy Monday! I hope every enjoys the day.
My little brother is getting married on the 4th of July and his bride to be (sweet, sweet girl, I just love her) asked me to make a wedding quilt. She wants one with open blocks for her wedding guest to sign, sort of a replacement for a guest book- a guest quilt. I have a little more than a week and a long ways to go. But I'm loving it. I'll try to post a picure of it.

Well, break time is over, everyone enjoy your coffee/tea and sweets! And try to stay cool!

Blessings

Shanda, the guest quilt is a wonderful idea!
I spent the weekend at my mom's with my two kids. My sister and her family were visiting from Chicago. We had a wonderful time! Went to the peach orchard and bought some peaches for my sister to take back with her.
Finally got to go to Hobby Lobby and pick up some embroidery floss. It's a shame that the closest place to buy sewing stuff is an hour away. But now that I'm home with the kids this summer I thought I could get some crafting done.
I understand completely about the depression. Winter is not a good time for me either! Don't be afraid to get help for it! My father in law had depression really bad but he wouldn't get help because he was afraid he'd lose his FOID card and wouldn't be able to work on guns anymore. He ended up committing suicide.
I had sun poison once on a trip to Texas. It was horrible! I have had one skin cancer removed from my face and have to be very careful in the sun!

Wow, I go to a family reunion for the weekend and fall behind with my family here! The trip went well though. Ric made a good impression on the people who hadn't met him yet, so that helps.

So tired today...I envy everyone's productivity!



A hook, a book, and a good cup of coffee....

I've managed to keep myself busy.


Plus I had my other two to babysit today, and I picked and snapped green beans. Our first real picking of the season!

Yum, pickles!

Thanks for the prayers about that job offer - decided not to take it because I just didn't feel settled and at peace about it. So still looking for a farm-hand job... :)

Been super busy so I haven't had too much computer time. Getting ready for my friend's wedding in a week and a few days - it's a July 4th wedding :D Fun but sad because they're moving to AL for at least 5 years... (Groom is from AL) I'll definitely miss my Nina! But she'll be happy so it's all good.

Rebecca, wow!! You were a busy gal today!!!! Looks very nice.
Lindsey, that is good that you did not take a job that you were not sure of. I am sure you made the right decision.
Tammy, I bet you will be so relieved when the house stuff is all done and you are moved and settled. Do you have a garden now?
Shanda, that guest quilt sounds like a very good idea. That will definitely be an heirloom. A very nice keepsake.
Alyce, so glad you had a great weekend at the reunion.
Have a great evening,

Morning, girls! *dusting off apron, kicking mud off boots* I have been absent for quite a while, and so I haven't read any posts to catch up.... the move is still ongoing, Josh and I are supposed to go tomorrow and finish cleaning the trailer and moving out. I am so ready to be settled in the new house!

We went to Lubbock last weekend to go see family and friends and pick up a bed my future in-laws bought from a couple who are essentially like Josh's grandparents. We had a lot of fun and were surprised to find it's rained quite a bit in Lubbock, recently! When I got home, one of my coworkers told me it looked like we'd been mudding!

The dogs came with us, and we found that my Catahoula, Train, is quite the escape artist. Sunday evening we (me, my fiance Josh, and our friend Jeff who grew up in Lubbock) put Train in the pen next to the goats and donkey behind Ma and Pa's house, and went driving around. Pa had built this pen, and is known for making very secure pens, BUT around the time we got done driving around, Josh's mother called. Apparently, Ma hadn't written down Josh's new phone number and called my future MIL to tell her the dog had somehow gotten out of the pen, and was standing at the back porch, but would not come in when she asked him to. He came in when I told him, but not for anyone else.

The next day, when we went to go see family friends, and decided to tie his leash to a rope and tie the rope to the post out front. When we got back, he was happily trotting around with the 3 inches of remaining leash still attached to his harness. He had not left Ma and Pa's yard, but had managed to CUT... not chew, CUT the leash. We think he scraped it against something and nicked it enough to snap it loose. None of the neighbors would have cut it, so we know it was my little Houdini.

That evening, Josh and I had supper with one of his childhood friends, and we tethered his harness to the wench on the front of Pa's Kabota, knowing he wouldn't be able to snap the cable or unlock the hook. When we got home, he stood there, tail wagging, nekkid as a jaybird.... he'd wiggled out of his harness.

The funniest part of it is that he NEVER left their property. The closest he came was Tuesday morning when we were getting ready to leave. I was taking the trash out to the dumpster, and as I rounded the path back to the house, on the other side of a fence covered in trumpet vines, Train caught a glimpse of me and darted toward the road (never in it, just toward it so he could greet me with slobbery kisses).

We had a great time in Lubbock, and frankly, I don't care what anyone says. I love that town. Then again, I'm a Texas Tech fan and I love the people there. I don't even mind dust devils and haboobs!

Well, anyway, we're settling into the new house, and feeling at home. I am calming down a lot and not stressing as much, which is such a blessing. The drive isn't nearly as bad as everyone had said it would be, and the gas is about the same as driving a SHORTER distance from the trailer because we're not having to stop all the time for slow motorists and red lights. There's no noisy neighbors, and I have random food growing everywhere in my yard!

When I went to the house the first time by myself, I went to check the water meter, and there were HONEY BEES living in the meter box! Unfortunately, they had to get rid of them, but at least we know we could raise honey bees if we wanted! The next day, I went out to the yard and discovered that one of the trees is a pear tree! That evening, we found several squash plants bearing fruit around the yard. There are TONS of sunflowers about to go to seed, and a Mulberry tree in the corner just outside the fence!

OH YES...I can not recall if I had mentioned Josh's find in the kitchen drawer... 3 bibles, one of which was given to the homeowner by his wife before they were married. It had a metal cover and on the inside was a card bearing his name, stating it had been given to him by his wife (her maiden name) in 1944. He carried it to war with him. I had tried and tried to get a hold of their son, who sold us the house, but couldn't seem to find a good piece of contact info. The water co-op was looking for the information, as well, and so I finally came across it and emailed it to the girl at the co-op. She mentioned the bibles to him, and how concerned I was to get them back to him. According to Heather, he had left those bibles on purpose... his mother told him that if he ever sold a house, the bibles stayed there. We intend to put them in a box where they can be protected, and still touched and used.

We have been so very happy, even with the struggles (for example, our air conditioner has been out since LAST tuesday, thank God for window units) and I see a change in Josh, too. We both feel more calm, more happy, more at ease.

Once we get settled, I will be working on that wedding dress!!!!!!

I hope everyone is doing well!! I will try to catch up with everyone soon!!!

Shanda- I think that is a lovely idea for the quilt. What a perfect memory for them.

Rebecca- Nice pickles!

Hi Cherime!

Miranda- Nice to hear from you. I was wondering how things were going with your new house. Your little Trainy Houdini is very naughty! Ha ha. I didn't know Lubbock got haboobs. I've seen pics of them in Arizona. They look very scary like God is coming down on you. What a great find with those Bibles. I have several old family bibles, one in German, and I cherish them all.

Well, after catching up on all the reading, I had better get up and get some things done. Going to cook up some tomatoes and onions and get them canned. I gotta figure out some kind of menu and shopping list and have to get some bible study done in between all that. Lastly, I'm happy to report a secret I've been keeping from you ladies. Hee hee. We have 3 successful baby bunnies! They've passed their 2 week mark and are all fur balls and eating a little grass. We are so happy we finally got some to live. I need to get a pic to post for you.

Yay for baby bunnies, Julie!!! Yes, post pics when you can!!

As for the haboobs, they're not AS common in Lubbock, but do hit! We got flat run over by one last time we were out there. It looked like MARS!!!

And yes, when it comes to staying tied up, Train can be VERY naughty. But, he's generally a good dog, especially considering his "upbringing". I went to get his food bowl that he flung out into the yard this morning and he TORE off like a race horse!!

THAT REMINDS ME!!!! The little brat took off with one of my boots the other day! It had rained that morning and that afternoon, I'd gone out to pick mulberries. Our land is mostly black gumbo (kind of like a black clay) so my boots were COVERED in it. I didn't want to track that all over the carpet, so I left my boots on the front porch. That evening, I went to let Train in, and looked out to the south to see something blue in our yard, wondering what it was. Sure enough, it was the shaft of one boot sticking out of the grass!!! He thought it was a toy, or something. He didn't chew or destroy it... just flung it into the yard.

Well, I'm waiting for 4 PM to get here so I can get home and hope the AC guys actually fix the air tonight. It's been nearly a week with no AC and it's 105 today!!

Plus, I think I'm going to make chicken fried steak tonight for supper. It's either that, or grilled chicken wings. We shall see and I will report in the morning!

Well y'all, going to go read some stuff about a local bank robber. Ugh... our trial is coming up in about two months. Dreading it, but once it's done, it's done. The approaching anniversary and trial have made us all a bit more watchful, which is good, because a known bank robber was seen at the Frost bank across the street from us last week!!

Talk to y'all soon!

Good evening, farmgirl friends!
Peggy-So glad you are loving Seattle. Aren't grandbabies the best!
Tracy- I'm glad to hear you're feeling better after last winter! Spent many winters that way myself. The good days are such a blessing. We hung pie tins from string on the pole bean frame in the garden. The shiny, pans swing in the breeze and keep the crows out of the garden. At least I haven't seen one since my "Mr. Darcy" hung them. Before that I was chasing them off several times a day! I also have a wire fence around my little garden. It doesn't have to be real high, but otherwise the deer will go in. We have stymied them by tying yellow "Danger" tape all the way around the top of the fence. Haven't had a deer in the garden since! Now, I don't think they can read...but somehow the flutter of the tape must keep them out.
Pam- Sounds like your Kinette Club outing was alot of fun! I had never heard of that before. So, appreciated the link to their site, along with Patsy's explanation.
Janet- We are still hoping to check out Iron Mtn., MI! I love the cool weather! When people ask why we might move there..I tell them I heard they have a great Ben Franklins!
Shanda- The quilt blocks idea sounds wonderful! I'd love to see a pic?
My oldest DGD actually suggested that for her wedding (someday)! It would be great to see how it works. Good luck!
Rebecca- your pickles look wonderful! So, Fresh!
Cherime- good luck with your bazaars! Sounds like you are busy, busy!
Miranda- What is a haboob? I think your trip to Lubbock sounds great! As big as TX is..that is one place I haven't been to yet. Your new yard sounds full of surprises. As well as your critters.
Julie- Congrats on your bunnies! I would love to give you a few more as I have a new family trying to burrow under the garden fence.

Well, I'm off to read before bed. Painted on the outside of the house today..just a little tuckered. Also, bought the last of the supplies for DGS's grad/farewell party on Sat. He will leave for basic trng. soon.

Evening Ladies!
It's our 13th wedding anniversary tonight, so I will be brief, so as not to cut into our snuggle time!
My father was in town so we insisted that he come to our house for dinner, both of us cooked up a storm, me in the kitchen, and DH at the grill. We had a wonderful meal and visit with my Dad!
Dishes can wait, snuggles can't.
Good night!

Judith, Iron Mountain is only an hour away from me. They have warmer weather than we have though, because they are inland and we are surrounded buy lake Michigan. That would be great to move there, I know you would love the area.
Tracy, Happy Anniversary!!!! Sounds like you had a great one with your dad.
I will be working the next 4 days, so will be tired, not sure how much posting I will be doing, but know that I at least read what everyone writes on here and try to stay caught up with all the going ons. I will post when I can, even if they are short ones, know that you are all in my mind and heart.
Have a wonderful day,

Morning My Porchies
Yesterday was a fun day....got my hair cut (which it badly needed)...then we went to Theo's Chocolate Factory and you could sample everything...went to Farmers Market where my son bought me a gorgeous bouquet of mixed flowers. I also bought one birthday gift for Madeline's big day at the end of the month. Then last night after the
girls were in bed...we had some wine and chocolate and watched a movie.

Not sure what we will do today...there is a very cool Garden Art Store I would like to check out. The other day we
Went to a really cool Plant Shop and we found this awesome Tropical plant that has verigated purple irridesant leaves...my son loved it so much that I bought him one...Shane one and me one...then got us each ceramic pots in our favorite colors.

It is finally a nice day here. It so far has rained every day. I have learned one thing while I have been here and that
is that I am going to need to sleep for about a week when I get home. Lol. Iam too old to chase after a one year old for 4 or 5 hours per day. I only wish I still had that kind of stamina.

Well I am thinking about you all and praying for you all too. Have a wonderful day and be a blessing to some.

Blessings and hugs
Peggy

Morning, y'all!

Josh and I ended up dragging our old queen sized matress out of the guest room and using it in the living room so we could get some sleep and not melt. I'm so livid with this warranty company, I don't even want to talk about it.

Judith, in answer to your question, a haboob is a great big dust storm that blows across the Llano Estacado. Lubbock doesn't see many of them, they mostly happen in New Mexico, but last fall, it made national news! When we were there, it looked like a big squall line in the horizon.... but it was RED!!! When the wind finally died down enough to walk in it, we went to the Walgreens, and someone else remarked that it was like walking on Mars!

And people from Austin always rib me about Lubbock, but I do love it out there. Maybe it's the hawk nature in me, but I love the wide open skies, and the people are friendly. Plus, I'm a Texas Tech fan. It was one of two schools I'd planned to look into when I thought about going to college.

We're hoping to be out of the Trailer all together tonight. Need some prayers on that!! My nerves are so shot from everything going on, I might end up hiding in the shed, or in the cornfield with the rabbits!!!! I suppose I must remember my mantra... "Ever Onward". What else can we do at this point?

I hope everyone is doing well. One of my friends (former coworker, who trained me when I started workinghere) brought me two big containers of figs from her trees this morning. I DO so love good figs! Not sure what I will do with them yet, but I will figure something out!

And I picked pears last night. I figure in a couple of days, they should be ready to eat!

Anyway, I will check in again later, if I have the chance. Take it easy, ladies!

My gosh I just hung towels out the came in, so hot and sweating like a spring rain. Looked at the theom. and it said 110 degrees. Can you believe that? I really cannot remember it ever being this hot.

Who else is getting this terrible heat? How are you keeping cool?
I am staying in the house as much as I can. I do worry about my hubby being out in it tho. Oh and the poor animals, we got a small baby pool and keep water in it for the dog and cats.

Went down to see my mother yesterday and we were sitting and talking and all of a sudden the electricity went off. Come to find out the whole town had lost electricity, it was off for about an hour. I sure was not going to leave until it came back on, sure worry about my mother.

Kinda short for time today so I am going to sign off for now. Every one take care.

Hi Ladies
I'm in the great GREEN north visiting my family. Oh how I love Canada. Having a great time seeing everyone and drinking in the lush green color. It's refreshing my soul. Kids are having a blast and loving being able to walk through the grass with no worries of snakes. Saw a cow moose and her new calf, gave her LOTS of space. Seeing deer everywhere. A few bears. Saw a couple of foxes and then there's the coyotes!! My mom has an awesome Norweigen Elkhound that I have fallen in love with. Threatened to steal her but she'd die in the heat so she'll have to stay here. *sigh* Leaving tomorrow to start my two day drive. Coming home with my TRUCK!!!! Daddy is giving me his Dodge Cummins one ton, dually, crew cab..... ooooh so excited. Six gears to shift through and all that rumbling power.



Nikki Nik (her real name is Nikki but she just needed a nick name



My parents' house. It looks like a Swiss chalet. I just love it.



View from my parents' house. See my round corral where I used to worked with my horses?



This was my woodshed. See the pretty wild rose bush?



This is the road I took to visit my friend in Goodlow (where my Daddy grew up). The Beatton River runs through the valley and I grew up riding my horse through the Beatton Hills to visit my friends in Cecil Lake. GOOD memories.

Okay, enough. I'll stop pestering you all with my photos and memories.

Blessings to all,



Excuse the mess & the noise, my children are making happy memories

Kimberly, what an awesome place to grow up. So glad you were able to make the trip with the kids. I love the sound of a diesel truck myself. I can't imagine owning anything else.

Peggy, sounds like you are having a wonderful time with GDs. Sorry about the rain. I would love it myself. The weather here so far has been really nice. A few rainy days but in the 70's and perfect.

Netty, 110 degrees!! Not Fun! I know there is a terrible heat wave going through the midwest and eastern states. I would worry about your mom and that terrible heat with no electricity. I hope it doesn't stay off long.

Miranda, hope your move goes well. I know how stressful it can be to get it all done. Hang in there.

I put my new Etsy store online today. I have so many things I have made this last year and taking pictures in the basement has been not working out so well. So I went outside. My mom has a piney looking tree out back and I just hung stuff off of it and took the pictures that way. Hopefully something will come of it. I have so much more to do! Amazing how long it takes to put just 4 little items on. Anyway, I put my site links at the bottom. I'm starting a new blog too. It is after my orange tabby, Alex. He is into everything and such a big help when I sew. It was easy to use him as a subject. I'm trying to think of ways to cash in on his wonderful personality.

Anyway, I'm starving. I forgot to eat lunch I was having such a good time today.

Later All!

Happy Anniversary Tracy!
Beautiful pictures Kimberly!
Netty, We are supposed to be up in the hundreds for the next week! It's strange though because the air is so dry it's more tolerable. It's usually so humid you can't breath! We are in a severe drought in Southern Illinois but at least it's not like Colorado. I feel so sorry for them

Nothing is impossible!
