Judy....I will never understand these Doctors. Sometimes I feel that some of them have no feelings for anyone else but themselves. Couldn't he look at Patsy's husband and tell he is still in bad shape. Also why had he not read the chart for updates, that is so unprofessinal. (sp) I get so upset when normal people get treated like we are nothing.

I went to see about my hands and one place would not even see me because I do not have insurance. That makes me feel like I don't matter and it's no big deal that someone is in pain. I never thought it would come to this. The bad thing about the place I am talking about is that my daughter had gone there a couple or so years ago and I paid the bill off early, but I guess that don't matter if you have good credit!!!!

Judy....just remember I will be praying for you all.

Judy, thank you for keeping us informed about Jim. I can't imagine what he and Patsy are going through. I hope things turn around for them soon.
It has been quiet on here today. I hope that means everyone has been having fun today!! LOL!!
I hope Peggy is enjoying her retreat. Glad she was able to get away for a few days. I am sure she is having a good time.
Well, off to bed. Have a great evening,

Hello My Chatty Porchies....just caught up on everyone's post for the four days I was gone to the Beach.

Not going to answer each individual gal tonight...as my body and brain are mush. It is almost 2:00 am and I can barely keep my peepers open.

The Beach Retreat was FABULOUS!! Gorgeous Sunny Weather. Lots of walks on the Beach, Lots of Shopping, Lots of Eating, Lots of Laughing, Lots of
Playing board games
(we got stuck on the Christian Version of Apples to Apples). Not as funny as the original game...but still had some good laughs anway.

I had the previledge of baptizing my future DIL. No, not in the freezing Pacific Ocean...we let her off the hook and I baptized her in the Hot Tub. It was Awesome!!!

Judy...thanks for keeping us posted on Patsy and Jim. How terribly strange this whole thing is. We will just keep praying and believing that God has a plan.

When does mama move into her new place?

My DH was asleep when I got home late this afternoon and just a bit too cranky when he did finally get up. I am so happy the Dog was glad to see me. LOL

I am not a Snicker Doodle fan...but I would love the Recipe to that Apple Raisen Pie....whom ever has that.

Sweet Dreams of Ocean Waves and the smell of the Salt of the Sea,
Peggy.

Good morning, Porchies! It's another beautiful, sunny day here in Iowa. I'm packaging up my last October Tea envelope. Such a busy weekend..so, I'm just mailing out today. I hope you enjoy them.

Patsy and Jim, prayers are still coming your way! Judy, I know it must be just as exhausting for you. So, prayers for you too.

Very cute end tables! I love using things like that.
Cherime, snow already! Wow, I love the first snow..but, not yet please.
Peggy, It sounds like your little vacation was just what you needed. What an honor to baptise future DIL. Did you ever think in your life something so wonderful would happen for you? Life is full of new things.

Judy, I love the chamomile story! Sounds like a child's story. I was imagining story illustrations all the way through.

I haven't been real active on the FG connection lately. Decided to take care of a little patch of skin cancer. We are handling it with a topical cream. I think it's working the way its supposed too. But I'm living on Bonine, Benedryl and aspirin and sleep. Only a couple of weeks more to go if all goes well. I count my blessings and pray for all the people who go through much worse. Just this little bit is setting me straight.

Cherime, Today, I'll be planting sweet pea roots from DH's grandmother's garden. (before snow).

Have a lovely October 1!

Its rainin today and all the critters are fussy! Max, my 10 month old Lab has whined since 4 this morning! There is a nip in the air today. Let's me know Fall is well on its way in. Makes me want some cookies and coffee. any suggestions on the cookies? I can eat em but cookin em isn't on my list of Wow..she is good at that!
Judith, I hope all turns out well on that skin cancer. Been there myself. and I am so envious of those sweet pea roots! I can just see them blooming next Spring.
If anyone has any good cookies, bring em on and set a spell. Maybe the critters won't drive you bonkers!

I've been quiet lately. I hope all is well with you ladies. Here's why I've been quiet: in 60 days we will be closing on our new 29 acre farm with two story cape cod style home!!!!!

Everything is signed and set. The for sale sign now says SOLD. It's a small farming community we're moving too as well. We're so excited!! No more creepy neighbors. No more worry about the kiddos (too much anyway, lol!!) when they are outside. No more hating on our normal farm smells!

I couldn't be happier right now! I am passing around the champagne (or sparkling grape juice for the non-drinkers).

Cassi....I am so happy for you and your family for getting your dream farm. Boy, talk about having fun now and the kids will just love it.

Judy....sorry for running off at the mouth earlier. I was on my pity pot, again!! If I would do something about things instead of moaning and groaning I might get some thing accomplished. I just pray Jim is still on the mend and feeling better.

Peggy I bet you had a great time and I know you are worn out also. Things just seem to catch up with you after awhile. Baptizing your to be DIL seems so amazing, I bet it was great feeling for both of you.

Cherime....I do not care much for snow, but I sure hope we get a ton of it this winter. With the drought and all we can use it. Just rain would be great, but I am not going to complain if we get the snow. Keep warm up your way girl!!

Well I had better get some supper going, my son will be home before to long and he will be hungry as usual.

Everyone have a great evening.

Peg, so glad that you had a relaxing trip and got to spend lots of time on the beach enjoying one of God's beautiful natural wonders!
Mama thinks she'll be ready to move towards the end of this month. She's taking her time and thinning out stuff as she goes.
Judith, Wow, you are on the ball with the tea swap. Can't wait to see what you send.
I'm not sure what happened to Angela. Did she send her tea for Sept. and I just didn't get mine? Just wondering!
Cassidy, horraaaay for a brand new homestead! I'm excited for you! *lifts a glass* CHEERS!!!
Netty Dear, No problem, We all have an attitude right now(Jim,Pasty&Me)andwant to choke someone! LOL Jim walked around his room with the help of a walker. Now they want to send him home. WHAT!!!Although he's trying to move around as much as he can, he's still in no shape to go home. Good Grief!!!Let's have some answers first! They are still calling him the "Mystery Man!" Nobody can figure out what really happened to him!
Well, I'm exhausted. We took Mama some more boxes&lunch and we painted some more in our house, so I've had it for today.
G'Nite Gals!

Peggy, welcome back!!! Glad you had a great time. How wonderful to be able to baptize your future DIL.
Judy, hope you will be able to slow down some soon. You have been under alot of stress, and working super hard lately. Please take some time for yourself. Great that Jim was able to walk with help. Why would they want him to go ome if he is contagious? Prayers that he continues to improve and will be back to normal soon.
Cassidy, congratulations on your new farm!!!!! How wonderful for you and your family.
Cherime, they are talking snow in the Dakotas and Minnesota by the end of the week. I am not ready for that yet. We will only be in the 40s for the highs by the end of the week.
I sewed all day today, making tote bags and dish drainer quilts for craft sale in November. Now I am tired and ready for bed. Have a great evening,

Good Evening My Lovelies...

Judith...dear one so sorry to hear about your patch of skin cancer. Glad the topical cream seems to be working. You are such a "Love" we want you around for years and years to come.
Keep us posted!
Can't wait to get the tea in the mail!!! Love Farmgirl Mail! And thanks so much for the pkg I got from you today on the Photo Swap...but I will post more about it over there.

Nancy...hope the animals didn't keep fussing all day and driving you bonkers.
And hope your Lab took a nap later in the day and YOU too! 4:00 in the morning is crazy! Is there really a 4 in the morning????? I've never seen it and never hope to. LOL

Cassi....CONGRATULATIONS FARMGIRL!
That is the most exciting news!!!! I never imagined a Cape Cod Style Home on a Ranch before but hey, Why Not! I kind of picture them more at the Coast.
And good riddens to creepy neighbors...who needs 'em. LOL
So Happy With and For YOU girlfriend.

Jenne...WELCOME TO The PORCH. Pull up a Rocker and sit a spell and tell us a little bit about yourself. This is a GREAT and Fabulous Place to hang out.

Netty...yes, my Retreat Wknd was soooooo awesome...and God was so Present with us...and baptizing Sadie was just the best thing that happened! So amazing!

Judy...what are they thinking wanting to send Jim home? It's almost like, "Well, we don't know what cha got, don't know how to treat you, don't know if it will go away, sorry you can't walk unasissted but hey buddy we wish ya the best *slap on the back* and we're sending you home."
That is just too insane for words.

Glad Mama is going through her things and taken it nice and slowly. I know she must be worried sick about Jim and Patsy and you (worken yourself to death).
Get some REST!!! Wish I could afford to send you all to the Beach to experience the Relaxation and Refreshing that I just enjoyed. God is so transparent in His Creation...how can people NOT believe in Him, when the Heavens and Earth Scream His Glory!?

Janet...thanks for the "Welcome Home" girl. It is good to be back. I went to help my youngest son for awhile today. He is busy trying to put his house totally together so it looks more like a "HOME" instead of a hotel room. They have been in it a year this month...but never had time to really decorate it with those homey touches. So, since Sadie is still working a 60 hour week...he is trying to pick up the slack...since his business is starting off slowly. He has decided with baby on the way...to take on a FULL TIME job and work his new business too....until it really gets off the ground enough to keep them financially stable. So, please pray for him as he looks for something else.

Sounds like you are making some cool things for your November sale. How fun! Hope you sell it all!

Cherime...did your snow stick???? And have you gotten anymore? I thought of you today when I was sitting on my back Porch and it was 80 degrees on Oct. 1st. The rest of the week will be mid to high 70's and we have had no rain in three months. Yahoo! That is an all time record for here.

Alright you Peachy Porchies....I'm Off to LaLa Land. More Later.

Sweet Sweet Surrender,
Peggy

Hi ladies, all that talk about snow and 40 degree temps makes me want to drag out the quilt and snuggle under covers! But then I would roast! Temps are way different for me in Ga. We did get 3.5 inches of rain yesterday and last night which is wonderful.
The Fall garden sure needs it. Today I am going to walk the woods and pick up some Fall leaves and press them. I love Fall!!
Happy Day ladies!!

Peggy, glad to have you back. Sounds like your retreat was a real "treat". Haha.
Anyway,

Cassi, big news for you. How wonderful to get what you want. I bet you have lots of great plans in store.

Judy, can't believe, (actually can) they are trying to send Jim home. Maybe a visit to a different hospital is in order.
Ever read "Heaven is for Real" ? The little boy in the book almost died at one hospital. They pretty much gave up on him because they didn't know what was wrong. So his parents took him out and to a hospital closer to home. The doctors there figured it out and he ended up ok. I think Jim needs a second opinion. Either that or go find "House".
Sounds like Mama is almost ready to move. It is nice she is open to change. So many older people can't handle it.

Judy, I loved the chamomile story too. Wish it worked on me that good.

North much going on in my world. Homework and working at the library. Designing my Xmas cards for sale. No time for sewing anymore. I can't wait for Thanksgiving. I get to see my kids and my son's new girlfriend.

Wow My Porchies...

Very quiet on the Porch today. I am leaving you all some Pumpkin Choc. Chip Bread that I brought
back from my Beach Retreat. We stopped at Bauman Farms on the way to the Coast and I bought all
kinds of goodies there. If Mary Jane's Farm in Idaho is even half as cool as this Farm is...I would
love to see it someday. But I feel very blessed that we have all kinds of those sort of Venues in
our neck of the woods too.

I slept for three hours this afternoon...trying to catch up on all that sleep I missed at Retreat.

I found out that my next door neighbor is moving out and going into an Assisted living complex. She is
just 3 years older than I am and looks relatively healthy on the outside but like me, has fibro and chronic
fatigue, arthritis and some kind of problem with her feet where she can't walk on them at times. She has
gone to using a Wheelchair alot. Anyway...I haven't had time to really get to know her...because I keep
as busy as I can. I don't sit around the Apartment all day...I get out and do stuff...even if it is just
going to Barnes and Noble, running errands with youngest son, or DH or walking my dog...whatever. I just
refuse to not enjoy life to the fullest even if I have some bumps in the road at times. I know I HAVE to
keep moving or I will regret it in the long run.

I started getting some of the Photo's from the Photo Swap I am Hostessing and that is really fun...to put
Faces with Names. My little MJF Farm Sisters Photo Album is growing once again.

Heading to Bed and Praying for YOU ALL. Ya better be back on tomorrow or else I will be coming to 'Round
Ya All Up like a bunch of cattle. Ha Ha!

Night Girlies,
peg

Oh Peggy it is so good to have you back on line. I know for one I have missed you. I know you will keep us all on our toes.

Whittney....I just love your new end tables. They are so neat and it is even better that you made them. Not to long ago I was needing a bigger desk in my office/craft room so I asked my hubby if he could make me some kind of box ends to set a door on top of. Sure enough he made me some and they are similar to your end tables just some what bigger. Now I can store things under my door top and I have a large table top with the door to do all kinds of things. I am very happy with it.

Janet....I need to get to sewing and crocheting, I am making a lot of Christmas items this year for Christmas. With the drought we are as others got to put an extra pinch on the pennies. You know I love getting homemade gifts tho. They mean more and I remember what I got that year. My oldest daughter didn't have the extra money a couple years ago and made my husband and I a saying " Family is Love " and put it in a frame. Nothing fancy but I just love it and it sits up on my hutch so everyone can see it. I know the love that was put into it making it.

My kitchen is calling me to come and clean it, I keep finding other things to do tho. Just not in the mood, but I know I would feel better if it were done.

You all take care and take an extra minute to close your eyes and take a deep breath, exhale and just know that was your minute now go and hit the world ladies with all you got!!!

Morning Porchies,
I had a minute so I wanted to stop by and say Hello!!! I miss you all so dearly. Things here are starting to slow down so I will be able to spend so time on here. Well here's the scoop with me. Im still working 3 part time jobs and haven't done much to get ready to move and Im feeling ok with that right now. I have been crocheting alot and am meeting 2 other friends today . Were driving into the city to go to a upscale yarn shop. Im so excited except Im driving and that doesn't excite so much. Better get off here and make a breakfast cassoro;e for dinner,clean my car . I also need to go and get a new pair of windshield wipers looks like rain and mine are fworking so so.
I'll let you know how the yarn shop was . HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!

Cassi, great news!
The snow melted but it is cooler and there has been a couple of hard frosts. If anyone gets the Discovery channel and wants to see a bunch of extreme homesteaders, they have a show on Alaska Frontier. The family they show on it give a glimpse of what it was like before we got a bit more civilized.
Peg, just keep moving, that is the best antidote.
It is holiday bazaar time and am working on stuff to sell. My DD is finally out of the slave pit. Now that she is out I intend to start attending their board of directors meeting which are open to the public. Their new policy of not using donations for the women and children at the shelter and selling the stuff donated through their thrift store is not a popular policy. Members of the community feel as though their attempts to do something nice for an actual person is being sidetracked by their new get bucks policy. That's what happens when the CEO and director both have Master's in finance and not social services, they cannot see the people and relationships for the $$.
Ah well. Blessings all and take care.

Thank you ladies! I'm so very excited and feel so very blessed! It's very humbling to have one's prayers answered time and time again.

There's a lot of packing and things to do before the move. Once it's ours, we need to fence everything before moving our livestock. We also need to raise a barn. Which we have 3 people in the town offering their help with. I love this area! Everyone is so very nice!!

I will probably not be on very much due to this. Know that y'all are all in my prayers!!

Morning Porchies!
Peg, Yum! TY for the pumpkin bread.Pumpkin (anything) is tasty in my book.
Is your DH done with his "snit" now? He'd better be. He'd better watch himself. He doesn't want me coming out there and "Putting My Hands On My HIPS!!!!" It won't get pretty after that! Soon as I do that...it's all over 'cept for the clean-up!!!
On the bright side though, while I'm there I can help out on that "cattle-ish round-up"hahaha
Netty, It is nice to have Peg back isn't it?(even if she is cracking that whip already) ~geesh~
Ruthie, I always think of you crafters when i see new yarn at Goodwill. There's always a couple of skeins of it on their small table in the corner.
Cherime, I'd love to be there in the cold with ya.I'm so looking forward to the cooler temps, holiday bizarres and cookies,craft shows and cookies,our Chris-Kindle-Markt and cookies and all he like. Oh ya, and did I mention that I'm looking forward to COOKIES??!!!!I just really like that holiday feeling with it's neat smells, sights and sounds....and cookies! YUM!
I should be big as a barn!hahahaha
Cassidy, What a Blessing to have folk around willing to help.I always thought that I'd love to be a part of a barn-raising. Who says that you have to be Amish to do that?Not me! I just want to help someone build something that they really need.I may not be a crafter, but if someone around here would ask me to help out with a big project, I'd be there with my hammer, a plate of cookies,some ice tea, and ask them,"Where do ya want me?" I'm really enjoying painting our house right now(rooms).The nore tedious the job the more of a challenge it is to me. I really like that!
Well, patsy&Jim are at his sisters for a week! Yup!...they tossed them out...just like they said they would. At least his sister and her daughter can help them out. He's still walking with someone's help wherever he goes. Plus with his new diabetic diet, his sister's church is bringing in meals for them. That will help a WHOLE lot!!! Patsy said that she was breathing in the nice mountain air the whole way home. She said now she understands why dogs hang out the window! hahaha Jim told her that she has a little color in her chees this morning. I told her that "Pasty-Patsy was not a color!" LOL
When she gets rested up maybe she will come on and give yuns an update. She'll hopefully get more breaks since she has help now.
Well gotta take Mama over some boxes and a few things.
Later Gators!

Excuse me while I pout. I'm just having one of those days. You know, when you really don't have a right to be a grumpy butt but you are anyways???? I make homemade chicken soup and my daughter turns up her nose and refuses to it eat. I tell you what, for some reason that one hits me in the heart every time. I do everything in my power to give my family nutritious, tasty, homemade food and then get told it's yucky. She's in for a shocker because I made it so that I could put it in thermos' for tonight. So guess what she is having for supper????

AWANAS starts tonight. I'm helping in Cubbies and both my brats are in Sparkies. We're also going to be bringing the neighbor boy so I'll also be feeding him every Wednesday night picnic style. I can't afford to eat out that much so the kids will be getting tacos in a thermos, soup in a thermos, and whatever else I can come up with!!!

Also have to get our Christmas Shoe Box ready today because our 4H will be completing them on Saturday. This means I get to go shopping too!

So first I have to get school done (daughter is in a stage where everything is terrible so school takes her longer than it should), then I've got to get to town, do some shopping, drop the kids off at tumbling and then pick up the other kid and feed everyone and get to AWANAS, then tonight when I am beyond exhausted from being up since three am and running around, I get to drive 45 minutes home and drop of the neighbor kid and get mine into bed and...... whew, tired of hearing me whine yet!!!!! It's not so bad really, I think I'm just feeling a little overwhelmed today. Maybe I need to get a hug. Sure my son will give me one. :) I'm so blessed and I know it, I'm just also so tired right now. Pray for me Porchies???

Judy, glad to hear your family is doing a little better. Hope that healing continues at a quick pace.

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

Kimberly, all I can say is you will miss all this when they are gone. Don't be too hard on dd for not liking your soup. I'm sure it isn't personal.

Off to work in the library.

Later all.

Netty, I too love to get handmade gifts, but my family does not think that way and do not like the homemade stuff. Where is their appreciation? Hubby has not talent at all either. Oh well, I do and that is what counts for me.
Ruthie Ann, a trip to a yarn shop with friens sounds so wonderful!!! I hope you all had a great time and found lots of goodies.
Cherime, Glad the snow melted there. We are supposed to get some on Friday. Hard to believe when it is in the 60s today!!! I am not looking forward to that yet. Enjoying still having the windows open some.
Cassi, Good luck with your move. It sounds so exciting. Hope you get all settled in before the holidays.
Judy, I though Patsy and Jim were contagious. That is too bad that hospitals are more for the money now. It all boils down to who can afford to stay longer. Where is the medical part? I hope Jim is able to walk better very soon. I am still praying for them.
I have to get dinner on the table, so will be back later.

Evening My Lovely Porchies...

Well, I see ya all took me serious about rounding you up like Cattle...cuz everyone is back today. It's like ya all had to rest your thoughts for a day and then you're right back to your normal chatty cathiness. Which I love!
Because who wants to hear themself talk??? Not me! LOL

I'm glad ya all missed me while I was at the Beach Retreating and having fun. I spent way way way too much money though. It is a good thing I only do that once a year. Whew!
I could get myself into some big time financial trouble with that kind of Retail Therapy if done more frequently.

Hi Netty...if your kitchen calls you too loudly just turn up the TV and ignore it.
I'm with you and Janet...I love to craft but do not have a family that likes to receive home crafted items. Though over the years they have received plenty. I am just the opposite...I love to get them...and I appreciate all the love and hardwork that goes into a homemade gift.

Ruthie Ann...darlen where have you been? We have missed your smilen face. Glad to hear that you will be on here a little more now.
I don't know how you handle 3 pt. jobs but good for you!
Your trip today sounded like a lot of fun. Those Specialty High End Yarn Shops are fun. I always go browse through them...then buy my yarn either on line or through a cheaper venue.

Hi Cherime...oh, if only the World could put people above the almighty buck...life would be so much better and sweeter and godly.

Cassi...wow, raising a barn seems a lot more daunting than packing and cleaning and unpacking. Glad that you already have a few volunteers....but I think you could still use about 4 times that many. Many hands make for a much lighter load and quicker results.
Happy Happy Happy For you that is for sure.

Judy...husband is over his "snit" and "pout" now that I am back home from all my fun. I think he just gets lonely and jealous when I am off having fun without him.
I think he would faint dead away if he saw you coming with your hands on your hips...cuz the man knows what that means!!! LOL
He think's I am bossy enough without recruiting my girlfriends to help me keep him in line. LOL
Wow...the hospital just pushed them out the door huh? Maybe you need to go put your hands on your hips over there too. That is just so NOT RIGHT.
Hope they gave them a "plan" on how to treat this mystery illness before they released them. Wait until we get Obama Care...will be seeing alot more of that kind of treatment.

Kimberly...oh, sweet girl..."here is a big hug"...I just hate days like that, when you feel overwhelmed and underappreciated. But I know you are a good mommy who dearly loves those little rug-rats. I think you just need a little RnR and things will look better when you are refreshed. One of my mothers of young children at Bible Study tonight...was having a day just like you.
She swore if her kids added one more thing and place that she had to chauver them to she was going to go on a Sit Down Strike!
And I whole heartedly agree with Bunny...someday you are going to miss all those crazy days with your kids.
They grow up all too fast and before you know it...they will be adults and out on their own...and you will hate the silence and the routiness of your days.

Bunny...how are you liking your Library job? Are people still relatively polite and quiet in Libraries these days? I rarely ever go in them any more. I know yours is in The College so, I would think that would be even quieter as everyone wants to get some serious studying done.

Janet and Judy...I know that Patsy and Jim are probably glad to be out of the Hospital if for no other reason than to get some rest. I have never found them places to go to feel better or to get any sleep.
I think the best place to get sicker is in a Hospital with all kinds off illnesses being treated there.

Madame Butterfly...where o' where have you flown off to????? If you are lurking you better make a pleasant landing on the Butterfly Bush by The Porch so we know that your little Butterflies haven't clipped your wings by mistake. LOL

Oh, My Bible Study Group was so great tonight. I just love getting into the Word with other Women and discussing how much Papa God loves us and takes care of us.
He gives such "Peace" in the midst of chaos and turmoil...if we just run to His open arms.

Off to read...and sleep...I am still trying to catch up on my sleep after all that fun last weekend. We had way too many great times of laughing... until we cried...and held our sides.
"Laughter is Good Medicine" that is for sure.

When you close your eyes tonight...remember that God loves to sing over you.
Sweet Dreams,
peggy
