Peg, that is the main problem with dentures, the dentist doesn't wear one and has no clue. I told the dentist that if he did not fix the silly thing that I would take a Dremel to it myself. They fixed it. They make them way too thick in a mistaken idea that they will last better. The first one I had fit like a glove and was nice and thin. Hardly knew I had one and it lasted 50 years. Then they tried to get me to wear the monstrosity they told me was as denture. Oh garbage! But I only knew that because the guy who made the first one was really really good. You might go back to them and tell them it does not fit correctly. It is worth a try if you keep bugging them they might do a good job.

Bunny glad to hear that you will be able to enjoy this one.

Strange rash? That is odd. A friend up here, a young man, tangled with Cow Parsnip, the poison in it reacts with sunlight and he is having a rough time recovering. Nasty stuff. It tends to leave scars.

Well ladies. Blessing to all and welcome Bernadine. I am always in a rush it seems gone again.

Good morning girls,

What a beautiful morning I woke up to this morning. A wonderful cool breeze so I started to water my flowers. Phone rings, I ignore it, it starts to ring again so I ran in and it was my hubby. Ok now I can finish right, no the phone rings again, I run in and it was a friend,had to call here back. I start back outside and I grab the phone and start to weed. No one calls you when you are ready.Ha The sun started to get hot and I started to sweat so I quit for now, maybe finish this evening when it cools down.

Bernadine....welcome to the porch. We always like new people to come join us. I think Peggy covered everything on how we roll here.
So come up on the porch and find a place to sit down and enjoy!!

Meagan....It always helps when you like the teachers and even better if they like you! I sure hope you have a great year. It sounds like you have a busy schedule.

Peggy....You got me when you said you took a pic. of your dogs spit up. *giggle* You are a very dedicated photographer and if you don't share it on here I think that it won't hurt anyones feelings.*giggle*

Julie....all I could do is laugh about the window falling in on you and you trying to get it back up. Then I bet you pulled out acting like nothing even happened. So funny!!

Judy...sure hope mom is doing better. That sounded bad and then your shingle flaring up, just what you needed I'm sure. Take care girl and I hope the pill you took will ward it off.

Emily....I always took my kids to school the first day and walked them into their class room. I don't know why, but it helped me and the kids didn't get upset. Maybe it was because we were in front of other people, or it just made both of us feel more secure.

Angela....is the pain subsiding a little each day, or is going to take a while longer? Sure hope all is doing ok.

Well I had better get off for now.
Everyone take care and have a wonderful day!!

Hey there, Bernadine! Welcome to The Porch! Glad to have ya here.

Well, we have 6 chicks so far... 4 hatched Tueday, one yesterday, and one this morning... and more are hatching today. They sure are cute little fluffballs! This brings our total to 38 chickens so far! But our rooster Gregory Peck may need a new home because he's picking fights with our other roo, Sarge.

I started lacto-fermenting some carrots today, so we'll see how they turn out.

Hello Porchies :)

I'm just starting at the top of the page on the topic reply page, so I'm sorry I miss anyone.

Linz - Congratulations on the chickies! How are your carrots? I've never had lacto-fermented anything, so I'm interested in how it goes for you.

Netty - Did you get your weeding done? It's so hot here this week. Thankfully the weekend is supposed to be much cooler (by about 10 degrees, so I'm happy).

Cherime - don't go too fast! Sit a spell & catch your breath!

Peggy - I'm interested in what your "retail therapy" was! What did you find/get? I think it would be so cool to go to an antique mall/store. Whenever I go to Value Village, I always take a look for dishes like my Grandma's lol. Not quite sure why - maybe because we all got a little bit after she passed away & don't have a set of anything. Not that VV is anything like an antique mall or store, by any means!

Megan - glad to hear your first day of school went well! Happy for you .

MeadowCrone - congratulations on your beehive & welcome to the porch . It's a fun place .

Judy - hope you and your Mom feel better soon! That's not fun at all .

Julie - oh no about your back window! Hopefully it wasn't too much of a mess to clean up!

Bunny - you'll do awesome on your demos I'm sure, and you'll probably get more students than you know what to do with!

I'm still rather tired, but it's getting better - maybe it's psychological because I know I don't have a million things to do on the weekend? Haha yah right. Going to try posting a bit more regularly, instead of "lurking" & not writing anything, even when I am crazy tired - you ladies are awesome! Thanks for all the prayers & positive thoughts. I had my dr appt today. She wanted me to continue with at least one of my medications, or I guess technically 2 (the metformin & spironolactone, and I have to get more blood tests done (yay me), just to see if my thyroid is down again. I don't know what it is. I'm really tempted to start a more vegetarian diet (a la "Eat to Live" by Joel Fuhrman and Sexy Hormones by Lorna R Vanderhaeghe & Alvin Pettle) & see if that doesn't help. From what I've read in a lot of books & a bit of online research, it's so much better for you. And meat is crazy expensive up here, not to mention non-organic/local, so I think I'm going to try it. As long as the co-op doesn't run out of salads & vegetables and/or their quality is good, I shouldn't spend much more on food than I do now. And I'm going to try some natural stuff for my PCOS, which is also another reason why I'm so tired all the time (gotta love how everything is so intricately inter-twined....NOT! Only great when it's all working together ) instead of all the pills/prescriptions & chemicals I'm shoving into my body , expecting it to cooperate.

I made 8 dozen no-bake cookies last night - it only took about an hour or so -for the farmer's market tomorrow. It's the church ladies turn to provide the meal & since I can't be there and/or provide anything hot, one of the other ladies said "just make some cookies". So I have vanilla, butterscotch, chocolate fudge & regular (chocolate coconut oatmeal). The flavored ones used pudding. They are a little sweet for my tastes, but a lot of things are since I got my tonsils out.

Well, I better go & tidy up a bit, and I need to email my friend. We ended up texting each other last night til about 11:30 which is way past my bedtime! And I told her I'd email her tonight. If I don't get started, I may not get to it tonight! Hope you all have a good night!

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

Evening ladies,
It is quiet int he house so I thought I would pop in before I do some study on my bible lessons. I already have a butterfly story...imagine that and only after 3 days. Little butterfly says to me: Mrs. Schroeder I have a foreache. Thought what is that? She replies to my strange look: Mrs. S. that is code for my forehead aches. I just giggled cause she just got glasses so it made perfect sense after she explained she was speaking code...too cute. They are a talkative bunch and so I am glad tomorrow is Friday. It has been a tiriing week.

I decided to do a table runner for next crochet and then my mom has a cute afgan that I can do so I have planned two projects.

I am so excited my new appliances for my kitchen are ready for pickup so hopefully this weekend we can pick them up and than have them installed next week. I might actually be able to cook again! Yeah!

well I am off for tea and some time to study my bible lesson.
love to you all
Tammy

Welcome Bernadine! I think you'll have fun on our Porch. We are just a bunch of hens doing the "pick a little,talk a little,pick a little,talk a little,cheap,cheap,cheap talk a lot,pick a little" cackle. (from Music Man)Remember that musical? Loved the music to that one. Glad you came to visit our Porch.
Peg, it is so strange to get shingles in the mouth and on the noggin.I thought I was having tooth problems until the Doc told me that's what it was.Crazy! It's weird, but I don't actually FEEL stressed. Mama and I feel a little better today after just one day of medicine. Thanks for all of your well-wishes for both of us. I will pass them along to her tomorrow.
Well, I'm tired. G'Nite Gals!

Hey Porchies....kind of quiet on The Porch today and night. I guess everyone is feeling ready for the week to end. It has been a very tiring week for me too. Mostly Fibro related.

Cherime...you know, my denture is very thin, I can't really complain there. BUT I have a very small mouth (I know, hard to believe huh? LOL) Anyway, because of that they had to make me a special (almost child size) denture. Even though my mouth is small my tongue is large...and there is no time when my tongue isn't rubbing up against my the pallette of my denture. So, my tongue gets sore from that. And it makes my already dry mouth even dryer. I started on the Biotene Mouth Rinse this week for dry mouth...I am not sure it helps that much. But I will keep using it. I also seem to bite my tongue continually when I am eating. It's like it gets in the way all the time...but just on one side. It's crazy because I am biting underneath my tongue...how that is happening just baffles me. BUT what I really don't like is that it makes my mouth look weird. It is like my upper lip...sucks in a bit making me look like an old crone with a frown. Are you getting the idea...that I hate everything to do with this denture experience??? Well, anyway...thanks for letting me rant. The dentist thinks they look just fine. But like you said...they don't have to wear them. What do they know. LOL

Netty...so your not interested in seeing my dogs heart shape spit up huh??? LOL
Well, I'll try not to take offense. Hee hee!
Boy, doesn't it always happen that the phone rings right at the most inconvenient moment? You should have just taken it out the first time huh?

Lindsey...can you show us some pix of your little fluff balls?
I haven't seen a bunch of chicks for a very long time.

Pam...what are your other symptoms besides fatigue? Diet can really help with energy level and a lot of other health benefits. I know for myself...I could never go totally vegetarian. I need my protein to feel good. I see that you are also diabetic (Metformen)...that plays a huge part in being tired all the time. That sugar spike is a killer.

I love the choc., coconut, oatmeal No Bake Cookies. Awe you just had to mention those didn't ya? I hope you brought some to the Porch to share??? LOL

My Retail Therapy consisted of some antigue buttons. A very cute white napkin holder (that is flat) with colorful butterfly napkins in it (they are new) and it has a little white bird that sets on top of the napkins to keep them from blowing away. Then I got two cute pincushions. One is a womans slipper and the other one is a small blue bowl pin cushion (I collect them). Then I also got 4 old iced tea spoons. Now I have 7 of them. If when I go back they still have the last two left...I will buy them too. You can not find iced teaspoons here anymore unless you find them at an antigue store or Value Village or Goodwill. I always have my eye out for them. My husband and I use them for so many different type foods...not just tea. That all I got this trip. But it was fun.


Teacher Tammy...good thing she informed you that she was speaking in code. LOL Do you teach speaking in code in your class? LOL I need to learn how to do that...it might come in very handy at times.

Oh, a Table Runner sounds like a great project. Good for you.
What are you studying in your Bible Study Group?
I am getting ready to teach Beth Moore
s Book on James. We just got our workbooks and are all anxious for Sept 6th to get here so we can start.

Judy...I don't think I've known anyone besides you to get it in their mouth. Sounds extremely painful!!! My Aunt got it on her scalp and in the corner of one eye. That can cause blindness (getting it in your eyes) but she had no adverse affects from it (besides the pain of the shingles itself).
Again, that sounds extremely painful to me. Well, I am glad you don't feel stressed...but maybe you were worried about your mama and that caused the flair.

Ok my Porchie Babes....my Crafting Group was fun tonight. We always have such fun gabbing and laughing.

Well, off to bed to read and then slumber....more tomorrow....praying a Great Friday For All.

blessings,
peggy

Aw those are so cute Lindsey!

Peggy - it is mostly just tired. Sometimes I get a little dizzy if I get up too fast, but I just stop for a minute, then I'm ok. But tired is the main thing. I don't think I could go total vegetarian, but mostly I think I could. The metformin is for my PCOS - which can lead to diabetes (family history also) & insulin resistance. Gotta go for blood tests right shortly. Of course there are lots of cookies here for everyone! I made 8 dozen! lol Share & share alike :). Just don't eat too many of them - they are kind of sweet :p.

Hey Ladies. Is it okay if I lean on the porch a bit? I'm new here, and am not totally sure how this porch thing works, but it looks to be pretty popular here in the forums.

Lindsey, that's a pretty RIR. I have one, and she should lay any day but her comb is still small and dry. She's a good sentry though seeing as though I don't have a roo. She's a keeper, eggs or no eggs.

Oh, no-bake cookies. Funny, I hadn't had any in years and my sister just made some and had me take some home with me after my visit recently. Now I want to make some too!

Anyone doing anything special this weekend? My son has his first Tackle Football game tomorrow. He's 6. I found my half knitted hat, so maybe I'll take that along with me. I also have a PTA meeting, and we need to figure out what we'll be discussing at the first general meeting. I need to put in the new doggy door sometime too, but I have a feeling the weekend will get away from me before I even get the laundry done. I work Full Time and am ALWAYS fighting to find minutes in the day.



...boys, dogs, a cat, chickens and a couple o' fish.

I'm a RidgeRunner, and will always feel best when surrounded by the PA mountains.

WELCOME TO THE PORCH ERIN!!! You couldn't have come to a better place to hang out and enjoy
awesome Farm Sisters!! The Porch always has room for one more. We love hearing what is going
on (or not going on) in each others days. We laugh a lot, cry together sometimes, hold each
other up and allow ranting and venting when needed to blow off steam. We love our virtual
food here on The Porch because it has no calories. We share food, drinks and even sometimes
recipes. (+: So, pull up a Rocker and stay as long as you want and come often, you will be
glad that you did.

Lindsey...Awe look at those little fluffy chicks. They are so cute. Thanks for sharing the picture.

OK...I am off to run some errands and I will be back later.

Smile and The World Smiles With You,
peggy

Afternoon ladies,

First thing this morning hubby and I drove up to the meat locker and picked up our freshly butchered cow, the freezer is full, thanking the good Lord. Meat has gotten so expensive at the stores, even the cheap cut meats are getting to cost way to much and besides you need really strong teeth to eat that tough stuff.

Then, here I am cooking dinner and the repair man shows up to fix my stove. I know he knows I cook dinner everyday, but anyway I take the taters and peas off the top and my meat is still in the oven. So he fixes it and it is working again. I burned out a burner canning. So next year I am getting canning burners for the stove and I hope they work. It is a little over a hundred dollars each time he has to come out to work on my stove. I am paying for the service call is what it all amounts to.

Pam....I did not get done weeding my flowers yet. I should be out there now, but it's more fun talking to you girls.

Peggy....I am also looking forward to starting our bible study here. I go over to a friends house and she runs a day care. Sometimes it gets a little loud and those kids can do some of the funniest things. We get use to the kids after awhile and then you really don't notice them, if you can believe that. Our study is Focus on the Family - Healing the Heart - Study topic: Restoration very interesting.

Lindsey....your baby chicks are so cute and fluffy. Sometimes I wished I had some chickens, it would be nice to have them to eat the bugs. We raised some turkeys once, ya know I did not have one grass hopper in the yard or garden. What I really miss is my geese. I had to get rid of them because everyone was gripping about the goose poop on the sidewalk and that they (kids) had to wash it off.
While watching my geese one day, I saw one of them sneaking (can you imagine a goose sneaking) up behind a cat. Well the goose was good at his sneaking because he peaked the cat on the bottom *laughing* and that cat jumped straight up in the air and run off. (still laughing) That was so funny and that cat never let a goose get behind him again. Ha Ha What stories I bet we could all tell with our pets and farm animals.

Erin....welcome to the porch and jump in anytime. My son has a soap scrimage game tonight. He is a Junior this year and he plays one of the guard postions. His team will play against a real team next week and we only have to travel 2 - 2 1/2 hours for this one. I think it is ridicules (sp) we have to play so far away. I'm sure we could find someone else to play that is a little bit closer to home.
That would be to easy then!!

My brain just went dead so I guess that is a sign I have nothing else to talk about. Boy a nap would feel good, even if for a short time. Ok you all talked me into it.

You all have a grand day!!

Hello ladies-

It has been a long time since I have come to sit on the porch. I've been busy at work on a project that has been all-consuming, but I have given my notice and will be retiring from my current company on 10-31-2012.

I am going to try and find another job, hopefully one that is less stressful and fewer hours required. I am looking forward to spending some more time chatting on the porch.

This will be short tonight, I am so tired after working all week, and still have one more day. I recieved my glamping book today and am anxious to open it and look at it, but am waiting until I get done on here.
Welcome all the new gals. There is plenty of room on the porch. It is a big porch and lots of chairs, swings, and steps to sit a spell!!!!.
I will post more when I am finally done with work. Have a great evening,

Hello and welcome to the new girls!

Hey Lynette, when's dinner? Kidding...got a freezer full of seafood here.

Brenda, retirement is a big step. Congrats!

Funny that I just missed a discussion of false teeth; I go in Monday to get the prosthetic for a tooth I had pulled in May. Was going to get it a few weeks ago, but the dentist had to pull out bone splinters. Ouch! No wonder it made such awful noises.

Ric absolutely loves his new job. Tonight he is hanging out with Kevin, his "brother from another mother". So, I get some me-time. Perfect time to visit the porch!


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

Hi! Ladies,
Haven't been n the porch in a few weeks. Things r very busy here. Hubby has decided to refinace the house. Suppose to save us alot of money. Not yet sold on the idea. So instead of a small amount of packing and downsizing were doing it all now . Then taking it to a storage unit. Im about crazy and if Im working here just packs and takes. I hope Ill be able to find something when he's done. His goal is to have this whole house packed and out of here by Sept.8th. Then I have a week to clean,paint and wallpaper. Then we will be appraised. Too much to fast. This week and next week I have worked/will work full time hours. Praying I can meet his goals Crazy if u ask me. Maybe his way of getting ready to move.Maybe my message need from God to really believe he wants to move. Im just really worried that by just packing and taking I won't be able to find anything when we move and will have more work then should be. I could just scream. I told him if he went near my craft room and 1 thing was touched war. He was in there and moved a box also moved my yarn around as well as some fabric. I had a fit. He just moved it to really see if I would notice. When I started to yell he just laughed and laughed. I see no humor in messing in my room. Not much else going on here besides working. Am going to the garden club garage sale in the am. Hope to score some old metal cookie cutters. We will see. Better get to bed morning comes early.
Take care ,
Ruthie Ann

Good morning! Just thought I'd peek in and say Howdy. It's been a while. Hope you are all doing well. Hopefully I'll get a chance to read up on what everyone is up to.

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

Good Morning
Wow it has been almost a week since i was on the porch. It has been a crazy week. School started with all of its busyness. My job has changed 3 different times. I think it is settled now. I need a few minutes to sit and relax and catch up with everyone.

Lindsey looks like you will be busy. I love to read when I get time. Mostly that is in the winter.

Peggy if you don't mind my spinning it on the drop spindle, I will see what I can get spun for you.

Pam Thanks for the links. I know I was one of them that asked.

April I felt that way when the movie Titanic came out a few years ago. Who would want to see a movie where almost eveyone dies. Sad really sad.

Shanda send the rain our way. Idaho is still burning. I am glad you got the rain you neeed.
Thanks for the recipe it sounds yummy.

Bunny glad you are feeling better. I hate being sick. I hope the housing thing works for you. Do you go to college in Portland?

Angela i am glad the Dr was ale to help youThat is so scary not to mention painful. Girl there are easier ways to get a vacation! LOl

Peggy I am glad you didn't break any thing. I mean on you not the furnature. LOL
I am a Para Ed. that means I have a 2 year degree in education. I work with Title 1 and head up the Before and After School programs. I like the cange of pace as I am never doing the same thing. I am way to ADHD to do the same thing over and over. LOL This year I was given the job of Homeless Student Liaison. I wil go for training some time this next week. It is hard to believe that in the small town that i work in we have homeless students. So sad. I am not sure I will be able to do the job and servive emotionaly.

Angela I will keep you in prayer. Well your backside any way LOL. You are truly blessed to have a hubby and kids that will help out so much. It may not be perfect but at least they are trying. Give them a hug and say thank you!

Julie I would live to send you some alpaca to play with. It might take a while as school has started and I don't have as much time to spin as I would like. The yarn will be all natural. in other words no dyes. My alpacas are brown so the fleece does not hold color well. The whait alpaca fleece can be dyed beautiful colors.

Bernadine welcome to the porch. Sit a spell and tell us about yoursrlf. I want to have bees too. Gut I live in town right now so bees are on my wish list.

Lindsey those are adorable chicks. Thanks for posting the pic.

Erin welcome you can lean on the rail or pull up a rocker. There is a swing but you have to be upearly to bet Peggy to the porch swing. LOL

Brenda glad you are back on the porch.

Ruth honey you gave him a challenge and darned if he didn't have to meet it. LOL

Kimberly Woo Hoo I been praying for you girl. I kept asking God to watch over you and bring you back to us. Praise God! Let us know how you are doing.

Well the Gkids are up and I need to get them some breakfast. Hope all of you have a great weekend

Hi Gals! Well, I slept almost all day yesterday. It could be the meds or the virus or both.
Mom said that she took a nice long nap too.Even with all the Benadryl, she is having trouble sleeping at night. Of course that could be the Prednisone. It effects people differently.
Welcome Erin!We love when new Gals pop over here on the porch. Tell us a little about you and what kind of dog do you have?Any other animals?
Peg, my mom had Bells Palsy twice(once on each side at different times)so she bites her jaws all the time. Poor thing hates to eat at all. I have a small mouth too. When I was little they pulled out some teeth to try and make room(a nightmare) but my lower teeth are still crowded.
Welcome back Brenda,look forward to hearing more from you.What kind of job do you do and what kind of work are you thinking of doing after you retire?
Alyce, so glad Ric is loving his job. Makes for a happy home doesn't it?
Poor Ruthie,Waaaaay too much stress girl. Breeeeeeath!!! LOL
Well, the heat is back(90), but not as humid. After all the 70 degree days, it feels way too hot! haha
Well, toodles for now!

Finished my 45 hour week, usually it is only 7. 6 days is way too much for my old bod now. I am tired and will need a couple of days to recoup. I did get to read 2 books that I won in giveaways, now I need to get them posted for a giveaway to keep them circulating. Am also reading the glamping book I got yesterday. Lovin it so far.
I will catch up hopefully tomorrow,
Have a great evening,

Evening My Porchies...

Everyone sounds just as tired as I am. At least I know Iam not alone. LOL I see us all sitten on the Porch looken like Old Tired Hound dogs. Only wiggling enough to shue the flies off. LOL

Our weather here was gorgeous today. Got warmer than they said it would (high 80's)...so, my hubby and I got in our little ol'bug and went for a long ride.
Which we haven't done for awhile. We stopped and got a couple of cold drinks and just hit the road meandering. It was a lovely day to do that.

Guess what girls...I think my DH is going to let me put eyelashes on the Bug. I am so excited!!! It will be so cute! I will take a picture when I do.
Have to find out the price of them etc.
I took a picture of a PT Cruiser yesterday that had eye lashes on it and showed my hubby what the looked like
(as he thought I was going to just paint them on myself).

Judy...hope you and mama get over your viruses. The Benadryl can make you very sleepy for a few days...and then it can start having the opposite affect...making you feel wired and wide awake. I hate when it does that.
I had a beautiful 30 something gal work for me one time and she got Bells Palsy. Half her face wouldn't move for about 3 or 4 months. She was a christian singer too and that shut her singing down for awhile. But she asked me if she could keep working while she had it...and I told her if she didn't care...I sure didn't care. I thought she was a brave soul for wanting to. She had to field quite a few questions and comments from some of our customers...but she did it with dignity and grace.

Janet...wow, a 45 hour week, you must be pure exhausted girl. Glad you got a little reading done anyway. Everybody seems very excited about the new Glamping Book.

Dianne...I don't care how you spin it girl...I am just so excited to try it. ~
Oh, goodness you are going to have a hard time keeping your emotions under control working with homeless kids. I know I would...and yet, I think it would be so rewarding too.
To actually help make a difference in their lives.

Kimberly...well, blow us away girl...good to hear from you. Hope you will be able to come sit and chat a bit more...fill us in on what all you been doing.

Sweet Ruthie...you still sound a bit stressed. I am praying for you and here is a BIG BIG
{{{{{{{{{{HUG}}}}}}}}
Just know you are loved and that we care! Come vent any time...it is healthy to get it off your chest and not bottle it up.

Alyce...glad to hear that Ric is happy at work.

A freezer full of Sea food sounds yummy.

Brenda...Welcome back to the Porch. Don't stay away so long...you miss too much fun! LOL

Netty...is the Healing the Heart Study the one by Kay Arthur?
If it is...I have done that one. If not...by Kay, I am sure it will be a good one.
I also, have my study in the home of a friend. There are 15 of us, but we have had up to 21 at times (gets a bit
tight with that many women) in a house. My bible study group has been together for 24 years. And we all go to different churches. We now have daughters that have joined us...from the original core group of 7 women.
It will be my greatest joy when some of their daughters join. We do have one 16 year old that comes with her mom on a regular basis and participates in the discussion. She is very committed to Christ, her Church and her Youth Group. It's so awesome to see that in young people.

OK Ladies....I am off to bed and a book.

More later gaters...

Good morning! It's a bit dreary on the porch this morning. It rained all day yesterday so I had to wipe off the rockers with a kitchen towel. The air is fresh though so come breath deep.

My son's game was chaos yesterday. They tried, but lost. That's not so bad but the number of back seat coaches among the parents was crazy! They need to learn to let th e real coaches do their job. The players get so confused.

Then I spent much of the afternoon in bed. Caught a cold, but decided to take extra vit C and combat it with rest. Seemed to work, but now I feel I have to catch up on things today. We'll see how that goes. Right now I am just watching the hens play in the yard puddles.

Netty...what's a soap scrimmage?

Good morning Porchies . It's a breezy, sunny, cool morning here - better grab some slippers & a blanket to keep you warm with your cup of tea or coffee :). Or maybe a kitty or two!

I didn't sleep much last night, but it was my own fault. I had gone out to my cousin's to help her pick apples & cucumbers & I also did all of my sheets - yay for line-dried, farm dried sheets! The only thing that would have made it better would have been if I had taken my clothes soap with me . My cousin usually makes it, as well, but had run out & hadn't made any yet. So I had to use what she had (generic crappy stuff). I put them on an extra rinse cycle, and hung them up, hoping they would dry over-night. It stayed windy enough that they were all dry - even the ones that were put on at like 10 pm! So now I have to vacuum my mattress, make the bed, and make the hide-a-bed for Mom on Monday (I think lol). Nice to have my sheets finally washed & line-dried! I also tackled my giant pile of mending. I decided I needed to get rid of it. I found out the hard way that sticky-backed velcro doesn't sew very well lol. Oh well, the machine needed cleaning, so it's all good now. I "made" a new project - it wasn't really that hard, but the material wasn't straight, so it's a little crooked. I wanted to make a fabric covered blind, but my material wasn't wide enough. So I improvised. And I'm happy with the way it turned out. If I do another one, I'll make sure it's better, but for right now, it works! I'll try to add a picture or three...
Before...

After...

And a close-up of the material.

Well, I better go & get started on my day before it's mid-afternoon & I don't have anything done! Have a good day all!

Good morning everyone. I had a good day yesterday with my quilting class. They had so much fun with the die cutter they didn't even start the project I had for them. They just had a blast cutting out all kinds of shapes for other projects. They told the guild coordinator they wanted me back next year. We will see. It was a lot of work for me. Plus my brakes in my truck decided not to work properly. I think the ABS went out. So I had to take my mom's little car and was not able to get my tables home. The local quilt shop said they would take them to their shop and I could pick them up next week. She wants me to teach some quilt classes too.

I was dead tired when I got home. 8 hours on my feet with fibro and was a hurting dog when I got home. But I'm good this morning. I have to unpack today. I have more projects to get started on!

Judy, so sorry you and Mama are sick. I hope you get better soon.

Erin, good to have you on the porch. When I get a cold I drink echanaecia tea with honey all day. It helps boost your immune system. Hope you feel better soon too!

Dianne, I know I could never do your job. My half sister is looking at possibly being homeless and although I could never live with her ( she is very dysfunctional) and that's putting it mildly, I hate to see her struggling and have no way to help her. To deal with a bunch of teens in that situation would be heart wrenching. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help. With all the sewing, crocheting and knitting here we could maybe help out with warm hats or mittens... I'll be praying for all of them and you.

Peggy, not sure I could drive a car with eyelashes. It may be one way to make sure your husband drives the other car until it dies. Lol. I am thankful the weather cooled off a bit. Still warm but at least not in the 90's anymore.

Kimberly, good to see you back on the porch. Hope all is well with you and family.

Pam, good for you sewing your fabric blind. Makes a big difference from the boring off white. I feel ya with the sticky backed velcro. I have had it come off so tried to sew it too. Big mess with the needle. Live and learn.

Well, I'm off to unpack the car. Shouldn't take too long and I can get started on my new projects. I'm going to finish some iPad cases and start figuring out some skirt patterns using old shirts. I met a really nice lady that owns a trift store I. Town and she said if I could make some up she would put them in the store for me.

Later all. Hope you have a restful Sunday.

Good afternoon ladies,
It is beautiful here today and just finished grading papers and getting things lined up for the coming week. I am most excited though because all my appliances for the new house are here and my dear hubby and his brother have been putting them in. The dishwasher is left today. I am going to buy a new tea kettle in honor of my new stove top. couldn't resist.

Peggy I have to ask..are you talking real eyelashes on your bug? I mean they will look like eyelashes...hehehe that I would love to see. My bible study group and I just stared Beth Moore's The Patriarchs. My group had already done James before I joined so still hoping to get a chance to do that one. I am liking this new study though.

Bernedine welcome to the porch...wonderful little place.

Bunny so glad that your quilting class went well.

Judy sorry you and your sweet mum are sick.

I found my camera yesterday just need to get some batteries so I can take some pictures of my sweet little home and share with yall
well I am off to spend a quiet afternoon
love to you all
Tammy
