Hi all. It was good Christmas. I am ready for the new year as I got all my business stuff done. CMF Services Inc. is up and running. I am NOT looking forward to dealing with the IRS but such is life. I guess I will need to find out what they want next.
The weather up here is skitso as usual. Temp is hovering at +30, +31 right now and I hear that Anchorage had rain this am. Not looking forward to Monday am, I just hate riding in an giant ice skate, my pickup, or skating in parking lots with my shoes. Ah Alaska, if you don't like the weather wait 5 minutes. Blessings all and have a safe New Year.

Good afternoon sisters,
It is sunny,snowy, and chilly here in Nebraska but it so beautiful when I look out the window. We had a very nice Christmas. Dear hubby got me a new camera and I am learning all it does. Have a picture of the family I will add at the bottom of this post. the family wedding before Christmas was nice but we were all relieved when it was done so we could just have some down time. I got hit with a nasty cold the day after Christmas so the couch, my teapot and great books kept me company. I am finally feeling better today.

Here is a picture of my family complete with the dogs.



hope you are all well. Time for afternoon tea
love to you all
Tammy

Cherime - Congrats on the business. I hope it goes well.

Tammy - Love your sewing machine.

Took the kids on a mini vacation. With the hubby gone I thought we should have some fun too. So we went to Chuck E Cheese with a friend and her kids. Then we went to a hotel and swam in the pool and had some fun. Went to a diner 50's style. That was fun. Tomorrow I think I'll see if we can go to a movie after Church. Monday we'll actually have company coming to our house for the day!!! We're all so excited. Right now the kids are watching Leave It To Beaver for the first time. :)

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

Evening ladies. Still cold here. Freezing seems like a heat wave if we ever get back up to it again lol. I think our high today was only 11. Tried to find some Carhartt bibs today but couldn't find any short enough. Guess I'll have to look online and see what I can find. Hated to pass up 40% off sale at TSC though. I've been wanting a pair so I can wear them to walk the dogs. Not sure what else I could wear to keep my legs warm and protected from the subzero temps and wind. I did pick up Country Woman magazine while we were there. For some reason our Walmarts doesn't carry it. I need to find a good deal and order it as it does have good craft and recipes in it.

Matt's sister sent me a skein of baby mint green merino yarn and a pattern for a Cat Paw Scarf for my birthday back in November so I started working on that tonight. I've never worked with yarn that small before. Depending on what I decide to do tomorrow I might be able to knock it out. If not it will be a good New Year's Day project to work on. Got a couple loads of laundry knocked out before work and finished what I'd started after I got home. I made a huge batch of beefaroni about two weeks ago and froze the leftovers in two containers. This morning I pulled one of the containers and thawed it for supper and made roasted maple glazed carrots and garlic bread with it. Easy supper but mighty tasty and filling.

Cherime - congrats on the new business!!!! I highly suggest Quickbooks if you can afford it to track everything. Makes doing all the reports for the state and such much easier.

PeggyAnn - are you over being sick yet? How horrible of you to have been sick on Christmas!

Kimberly - Sounds awesome to take a mini vacation for the holiday and destress it. Unfortunately NOTHING is open here on Christmas so eating out would be a problem if we did go to a hotel. Got to love small town life :O)

Janet...we will also stay home tomorrow night, it's not worth spending to much money on drinks or getting pulled over by the policemen. Going to bed early is also a good thing anymore.

Teacher Tammy....you have a very handsome family. Your dogs are pretty darn cute too. I do hope you get over your cold really fast, I know this bronchitis stuff hangs on for a month or so for some folks. Then my daughter had to take her baby to Doc. for ear infection and they gave him another flu shot, Doc said the flu was really bad up around where they live.

Kim...sounds like you and the kids had a great time on your mini vacation. I would like to go on a mini vacation for a few mini days just to get away. Sometimes I just need a break. I will be lucky to get to go to Wal Mart anytime soon. That's my time away.

Cherime....so glad for you with your bussiness!! Just hope it works out like you want it to. Have you guys gotten any snow up your way here lately? We missed most of the snow that was suppose to hit us a couple of weeks ago. We did have a white Christmas tho, very happy about that. Just so odd without the snow storms around here. We sure need the moisture from the snow. I will just keep praying because I God is in charge of all things!!

Bunny.....I cannot tolerate the horseradish at all, but more power to ya. My mom eats that stuff, I can't hardly stand the smell much less anything else. Too hot!!!! The rest of your meal sounded great tho.

Tammy....sure hope you can find some bibs soon to wear. I know they help out in the cold. It's been about 4 years ago we had a blizzard for 3 to 4 days so we had to go out and hay the cows after it let up and I had my sons bibs on and and could not believe how warm they can keep you warm. You should have asked TSC to have some shipped to their store for you for the 40% off. Surley they could have found some in one of their stores for you. Good Luck

Peggy....so glad you are feeling better and that you had a wonderful Christmas with your family. My last Christmas was yesterday for my dad's side. I am like Alyce about the stressful part, I wish things could calm down some so we could enjoy each other more. We backed off a lot this year with the gifts and most of them were homemade. I had so much fun making them and I bet the kids will enjoy them all year.

Well girls I guess I will let you all go for now. I need to make a scarf with some yarn I got a while back. Then it is back to sewing. I got to get some things used up before I can go buy some more things to make.

Take Care

Netty

You all have a wonderful and a Happy New Year!!!!

Netty, sounds like you had a busy Christmas. I am sure the homemade gifts were well accepted. Glad you are able to keep busy with your scarf making and sewing. I am working on knit slippers right now. Keeps the old fingers going.
Peggy, sorry you lost your whole post again. That is so frustrating.
Hope the rest of you are doing well. Have a great evening,

Well, here we are in a whole new year,with all new dreams and desires. May God Bless each of us and guide us through this next year.I sure wouldn't want to go thru it without Him! Amen?
Well, it sounds like we all made it thru Christmas and most of you have peeked in and are doing all right after New Years. DH worked today so he went to bed early last night(4:30 comes pretty quick) and I watched a movie and read and went to bed just after midnite. It was so quiet around here. No horns or firecrackers or anything.
Miranda, you asked what santa brought everyone.Well, he was really good to me.Besides the full stocking of trinkets and candy,I got perfume, a pizza paddle,fuzzy socks,gloves-scarf&hat,a book on reflexology complete with socks with a diagram of pressure points on them....ummm....flannel jammies and a micro-fleece sheet set so that I can just"poo-poo"the cold weather.lol We had a brown Christmas, but the day after we got about 5-6 inches.It has snowed 3 times since Christmas. It's gorgeous out!Our neighbor boy Robbie,has been here each time to clean the walks and earn some extra cash on Christmas break.School starts back tomorrow.
Bunny, I really like horseraddish too....taste&smell. mmmmm...Yum! When I had DH grind up some for that fire-cider I made,I couldn't keep my nose out of it. hahaha BTW, that stuff wasn't all that hot at all. Next time I'll let it sit&stew longer than 2 weeks. I gave it to Mom and she's sipping it,but it isn't stopping her cough like we hoped it would. *sigh*
Cherime, keep us posted on your business endeavors. You are such a go-getter,I'm sure you'll do fine.
TLTammy,ty for sharing your family photo with us. I loved that the pups joined right in. *giggle*
Kimberly, were the kids watching the new Leave It To Beaver or the old episodes? I have the old series on Netflix that I love to watch still.Then I have the newer one on my shelf,but haven't watched it yet. I've only had it about 3 years. It was a Christmas present....hahaha......What???
Ok Gals, it's after midnite and I'm tired. Time to crawl into my nicely heated bed and saw some logs! hahaha
Nighty-Nite!

Here is Snickers enjoying New Years Eve sitting under the Christmas Tree...that I really need to take down now. LOL

HAPPY NEW YEARS MY PORCHIES...

I am back on my Sticky Notes tonight...so hopefully no more computer eating my words like they were a dish of candy. Grrrr!

Why do I ever think that I can type on this laptop just in the message space??? I know why...because I do it once and it works and does fine and then the next timel..."POOF!" It is gone!

New Years was quiet at our house, football, pizza and home-made choc. chip cookies. And we kissed in the New Year with Time Square's Rocken New Year Party.

Today...I went and saw my son Shane's brand new office. I think I mentioned that he is now starting up Coldwell Banker's Property Management Division. We are very excited for him. He officially starts tomorrow.

Teacher Tammy...your family is lovely! You have good looken men in your life! And girl...you must have done fabulous on Weight Watchers because you don't look like you need to loose another lb. to me. Looken good mama!!!! Your tree was pretty and your sewing machine looks like a treasure!

Miss Miranda...did you get to start on your Wedding Dress yet?

Cherime...may God Bless your new business adventure too!!!

Kimberly...sounds like you and the kids had a fun little adventure together.
You are a good mommy...making sure that you spend a lot of fun times with your kids...making those memories for years to come.

RFM Tammy...have you tried wearing women's long johns under your jeans???
Those always worked for me...when we lived in Spokane and sometimes had snow on the ground 5 months out of the year.

I like Country Woman Magazine too. Both for the Photography, crafts and recipes.
Your dinner sounded delicious too! yummy! I love good food.

Netty...boy you stretched Christmas out there to the max huh??? LOL I never liked having to do more than one Christmas. It really puts added stress on everyone. My youngest and his fiance' did like three years of Christmas at three different homes...and finally they just started inviting everyone to their home...and it works out so much better. Everyone is a lot less stressed by it.

Janet...I loved that you home-made gifts were well accepted. My extended family never seemed to like or appreciate what I made and sent to them. My mom and sister were both all about Crystal and China...and I was all about Country Crafting. I think they always felt like I was being cheap...but I put a lot of time and money into what I made for them...they just didn't appreciate it.

Hey Judy...just like you we didn't have a White Christmas...but we did have a White New Years Day and Eve. We were the only place in town that got about an inch and 1/2 of snow that stuck. But last night we also got black ice and had three fatality car wrecks.

We still have snow today but it doesn't look as pretty as yesterday when it was falling down around my Scotty and I, like we were walking in a Snow Globe. It was so lovely and enchanting.

I will never remember everything I got for Christmas...because I got spoiled...but my favorite things were a Gaither Bible from my husband. He loved going to all those Southern Gospel Concerts and the first 20 yrs of our marriage he drug me to them all.
I am more of a Contemporary Christian Music person but I went more for his sake.
But...I seriously wanted that Bible because that had been a big part of our marriage...sharing that together. And the Bible the Gaithers put together is done very well. Then I got snuggly blankets, lots of gift cards, lots of chocolate, some beautiful jewelry, a nail tech. kit, a Red Shoe Ring Holder. Two Devotional Books.
Some knitting magazines. Lots of stocking trinkets...but my very best GIFT was finding out I am having a Grandson in May/Elijah Rainn Smith. And celebrating Jesus Birthday with my Church Family.

OK ladies...I am pooped and it's 1:00 am.

More tomorrow....
New Year's Hugs and Loves,
Peggy

Afternoon ladies,
I see most of us are going into the new year with smiles. Tomorrow I go back to my butterflies and school. I am quite sure it will take the next two days for them to get in all of the conversation they have missed with each other since before break. I might have to fly away..hahahahah But thankfully it is a short week.

Peggy I was beginning to think your temper tantrum was never going to end. So glad to see the post. did you notice my dear pups had to join the picture...just cracked me up...they just came right on in...hubby said family picture is complete.

Judy dear did you get my email with my new address for the tea swap. I realized when I got some Christmas cards from yall farm gals my addy was not updated with yall...I would hate to miss out on all that good tea.

Well ladies i am off to check soup for supper and finish laundry.
love to you all
tammy

Peggy, love your Christmas tree and pup-dog. And I'm in no hurry to take any of my Christmas decorations down. After all, January and February are the longest,darkest,longest,dreariest,longest.....etc. *giggle*.... months to me. They never end! I need all the cheer and lights and twinkle I can get during that time.LOL Sounds like you made out like a bandit too. We must have been really good girls, for santa to treat us so well. hahahaha riiiiiight......
I love my "pink" longjohns....longjanes???.....I even sleep in them. Sooooo warm!!
I truely don't understand people who don't like getting homemade gifts. I love getting anything homemade. Just ask Patsy....I go nuts over it.(well...if she ever comes back on here,you can ask her)hahahahaha
TLTammy,yes I got your new address. I won't be making out the address list for you Gals until after the 12th. We still have 3 slots to fill before the tea swap can begin...March,Sept.&Dec. I sure hope somebody else will join in our fun.I'd love to have the year filled with new teas...wouldn't you?
Well, we had a nice sunny day,but it sure was cold. Never got above 30."Spose to be like that the rest of the week and weekend.
Well, time to go read a book,snuggle under a warm blankie in my comfy chair and sip tea. heehee
Later Gators!

Hello girls,

Things have slowed down now and I think I am calming down some also.

So I stayed up with the kids on New Years Eve and watched the new year come in. This is the first time in a long time that I stayed up. I usally go to bed, but we had gotten another good snow so kids could not go to town so of course they wanted me to stay up with them. I really did enjoy myself, we just watched the TV.

Not to much going on here, although they did call me back to work at the school. It is only for 2 to 3 more weeks then maybe I will be back on call.


The kids are dragging their feet about taking down the Christmas things. I think I will start taking down and put it all in the dinning room and then they can go out to the little shed to get the totes and put it all away. I really hate to say this, but it sure don't feel like Christmas has even been here yet. Not sure why, we had a very nice family Christmas, just seems like something is amiss.

Well I am suppose to finish the laundry so I guess I had bette get to it.


You all take care

Just wanted to tell you all that they rushed BIL,Jim to the ER around 6 Thursday morning with a gall bladder attack. We all knew it would come to this one day. Poor guy had to be shipped to another hospital because the one in town that they went to was full of flu patients. So they went to the next town. He had a big stone and some smaller ones in there,gallbladder was gangreen and full of holes,so you know it was seeping toxins back into his body for....how long? I'd say it was ready to burst.He bled so much during surgery that they decided to keep him overnight although they originally said he could go home the same day. Poor guy!I don't think they knew how bad it really was until they got in there. Hopefully this will be the remedy for all of his previous problems.
Prayers needed for him and Patsy!
Thanks Gals!
G'Night!Stressful day!

Evening My Porchies...

Hi Emily...yes, my Scottish Terrier's name is Snickers. He is a great dog. I actually bought him for my husband...but he has sort of become more my dog...because I do everything for him. LOL

Thanks for The Toast!

Ruthie...my goodness girl, where have you been. We have been missing you.
Did your daughter get all the $ she needed for her trip?

Netty...did you have some Holiday Expectation that didn't happen? Just curious what is making things seem amiss to you.
How nice that the kids wanted you to hang out with them
on New Years Eve.

I finally got my Christmas all put away last night and today. I swear that it always seems like more work putting it all away. Maybe because putting it up just is so much more fun. LOL

Now, I am all decorated for Valentines Day. It all comes and goes so fast...that I put it up right after Christmas. I love decorating for all the Holidays.

Judy...praise God Jim is finally going to have something done with that gall-bladder. Poor guy! I bet he will feel like a new man once all that toxic stuff is out of him. Praying for both him and Patsy.

Tomorrow I have a guy coming to sew up my new recliner.
It tore on a seam so should be any easy fix. Then hubby and I are meeting a friend at Barnes and Noble that we haven't seen for a couple of years.

Then Saturday my husbands son and family are coming to see us and fill us in on what is happening in their lives. I believe they are moving from
Spokane to somewhere else...but not sure.

I got my hair cut today and feel a bit more human. My husband was going to get the dog groomed...and I said, "No way, I need grooming first!" LOL

It is really cold and rainy here tonight so we will be facing black ice in the morning....I hate that stuff!

We watched The Oregon Ducks and Kansas State game tonight. We are huge ducks fans and they did not disappoint!

OK...off to crawl under my covers and read for awhile.

More tomorrow!

Sweet Dreams Ladies,
peggy

WOW. BIL Jim sure has been through the wringer. Thank God they found it in time and did something about it. Hopefully now with that toxin out of his system everything else will fall into place.

Peggy, I hear you on the grooming thing. *sigh* it's already time to go in AGAIN. BAH!

So this is going to sound kind of stupid BUT I'm throwing myself a 40th Birthday Party. Bought some decorations for being over the hill and now I'm on the hunt for a birthday cake (don't want to make my own). You're all invited!!! Here's the invitation:

She's an oldie, turning forty. Astonishing tis true, whatever shall we do? A though has just occurred, the strangest thing you've heard. We'll play games, visit and eat food, we might just improve the ol' gal's mood. Hurry now, don't dally, don't be tardy 'cause we're having a PARTY!!!

I found the cutest candles (dynamite and a round bomb). Thought it was so cute. Now I just have to find the right cake to go with them. Something about my great age. :P I'm also thinking I should get a pinata. I may be old but I have young children and as children are VERY welcome at my party, I want something they can all enjoy too.

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

Judy, praying for a speedy and complete recovery.

Netty, Christmas here got sandwiched in between all the other life changes and was sort of low key.

Kim, I like that, very good.

Peg, I was bad and naughty and bought myself a Kindle Fire HD. For business purposes you know.:)

Chaos is the word that best describes the office situation at this point. The new attorney handed ma a draft contract that clearly was designed to not allow me to do any work on the side of a paralegal nature. I fully intend to hand it to him with a "this is what I will sign". I did compromise with him but what I have drawn up is a far as I will go. A non-competition agreement keeping me from working in this particular area of the law for 2 years and within a 200 mile radius was uncalled for.
So Monday may find me no longer employed there. We shall see.
Blessings all.

Thanks Gals for all the Prayers going up on Jim&Patsy's behalf! I'm glad we have a God who is still listening and cares for us,aren't you?
Peg, I love that you and Snickers were competing for the first Beauty Parlor slot that opened up. heeheehee...too funny girl!
I trimmed and colored mine yesterday. Gray hairs be gone! hahaha
Kim, I love the idea of throwing yourself a party.When is your Birthday? I don't see it on my Farmgirl calender.
Thank you Ruthie for your offer to take 2 months in the TeaSwap! I put you down for March&December!
That only leaves 1 month open(September)if anybody else wants to join.
Mama said that Patsy called her late last night and told her she was going to the hospital early this morning to stay with Jim so that she can call his sister if they say he can go home today. We haven't heard anything at all today from her. I hope she calls later from home and says he was strong enough and well enough to go home!
Oh, Mama's Birthday is coming up on the 14th if anyone wants to send her a card. She'll be 85. E-mail me if you need her new address!
Well, that's it for now.
Toodles!
