Oh Shanda, how sad!! he is so right though... my cousin's now ex-wife decided she found someone "better" after marrying him, and having two kids (which, he was always afraid to have children) and then she goes and leaves him, hooks up with new guy and just gave birth to another kid with the new guy! What really gets me, is that she's not a young girl, either. She's old enough to know better.

I think it's women like that who give the rest of us a bad name, but also make people think we're goddesses when we DON'T behave that way. Josh's best friend nearly peed himself when Josh told him he'd proposed to me, and Mike has never really liked any of Josh's girlfriends. I was kind of embarrassed by it, but Josh said "No one has ever been that good to me, before. You're actually NICE to me."

By the way... if any of you have not tried the little Snikiddy vegetable chips, you're missing out *nomnomnom*

howdy girls,
just thought I would pop in before I have tea and good read before bed. It is rainy and foggy here today. I got a new phone today so son could have my old one since his no longer works. i do believe that child was having text withdrawals...I of course retorted that speaking face to face works just as well. He said I know mom...just saying it is easier to keep in touch with everyone...I was like ok...teenagers So I am trying to figure my phone out...I didn't get touch screen or smart phone I don't use all that stuff anyway...so the guy at the store ..bless his heart...found one that is liked by those like me...who just like simple...

I have not had as much time to play with my new camera but did figure a few things out. It was so sweet of hubby to get that for me for Chrsitmas..taking photos is becoming a bit of hobby with me

I am finally feeling more like me again although I did nearly have heart attack when I realized I was down to my last tin of tea...so I told hubby I was in need of a new stash...bless that man who loves me with all my things that make me tick...

well I have rambled here I do believe so off to make tea and read. I am reading Lady Emily Dare to Deceive...very good read so far

love to you all
Tammy

Evening Porchies...

Tammy....is that the Tasha Alexander Book?
I love those books. In fact I need to go online and see if she has put out another one in the last year. I was at Barnes and Noble the other day and do you think I could remember her name for the life of me?

So glad that your hubby is all about making his woman happy.

Glad you found a phone you like. I am just the opposite...I like all the bells and whistles. I want a phone that does everything for me. I would be happy if they did housework too. LOL

Miss Miranda...you have all kinds of four legged children don't you?

Shanda...your son sounds like one smart kid. I have three sons and they always really struggled when relationships broke off. My middle son went into depression for one year when his fiance' broke off with him. And my youngest son, when his high school sweetheart broke off with him 2 yrs out of high school...he was a mess for 6 months. He lost a lot of weight, came to our home and slept on our sofa for literally 6 months. Even though he had his own apartment. Could not stand to be alone...he needed the comfort and support of family.

In many ways I think guys handle break-ups far worse than girls. At least mine seemed too. And it about broke this mothers heart to watch them go through all that.
So, kudos for your son...knowing that it is better to go through a little pain now...than more after marriage.
Very smart young man you've raised.

Cherime...so good to see you just jumpin on and off the Porch today. Amazing what a little free time does for one, huh? Knowing you we won't get to enjoy you on here so much after a little while. You will be out spreading your wings again and getting real busy. But for now...we are loven it!

Kimberly...I have been praying off and on all day for you. Hope God has you tightly by his mighty right hand.

Off to read and then to bed. Had bible study tonight. It was really great. First time back since Christmas.

Hugs,
Peggy

haha! That furbaby is not mine in the picture. Although the one attached to this post IS indeed the infamous Cedric Newcomb.

We currently have two kitties, a rat terrier and two catahoula leopard dogs. We got Tessa about two weeks ago. I found out how she's been getting out of the yard, and I am just praying that she doesn't do it while we're at work today. The only other option at this point is to leave her alone in the garage, and I just don't think that's fair, since we'll be away till after 6 PM. She jumped the fence right in front of me last night and OH WAS SHE IN TROUBLE!!!

I made an AWESOME pot of beans last night... red beans and lima (butter) beans with a left over ham bone (and a lil meat) from Christmas. I used the gigantic dutch oven Josh bought me for Christmas so we'll have beans in the freezer for a while.

Well, it looks like we'll have another busy day today... we're short staffed and have 2 managers off, so I'm sure that we're going to be running around the office like wild women.

I will leave y'all with a smile since the folks at the local radio station left me with one this morning. As promised - Cedric Newcomb.

Peggy, Thank you for the Birthday Card. I LOVE it. So exciting to get snail mail, especially when it is a fancy and fun card.

Thank you to all of you for your prayers. Please keep praying. My drama never seems to end. But God is GOOD. And He sustains me. All of your prayers support is such a blessing and then my wonderful friends here, surrounding me with prayer and helping me physically. I'm blessed indeed.

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

Kimberly...you are Welcome! Hope you 40th Birthday is the Best One Yet!

Miranda...sorry about the kitty mix-up, but I love the picture of your kitty
in the drawer. So cute! Do you think we need to worry that we are starting an
electronic footprint of our four legged children? LOL

Judy...thanks for the Tea Swap List....my husband took you literally and made me 10 copies. LOL

Well...way too quiet on here today. I didn't do anything out of the usual today.

So, I am going to hop off here and get to bed early for a change. Nightie Night Girlies.

hugs,
peggy

Haha, Peggy, Newcomb is so darn cute (and not just cause he's mine!) I have to share him. He cracks me up! Last night, he was sitting on a chair in the living room, and hopped off and landed on a dog's squeaky toy... and it SQUEAKED this aweful, loud squeak and he LEPT up in the air and spun around mid-air and landed and raised a paw at it... and then got embarrassed when he realized I was laughing at him. SO he reared up and ran away insulted.

Shanda, I wish I'd had a video camera up a few weeks ago... I was sick in bed, laying with my head at the foot, for some reason... and he was sitting on the other side of the bedroom door, in the living room. He took one flying leap DIRECTLY at me and I screamed. He landed and smelled my nose like "Whyfor did you scream? I just come say hai."

And, he got a new hairdo from my big dog the other night... I had the laser pointer out and all the animals were chasing it... when they finally got tired of it, Newcomb went and sat next to Train, who reached down and bathed his head backwards... so priceless.

Hi girls,
Hope you have had a restful Sunday. I went to church and then family and I had breakfast at McDonald's and then came home to get ready for the week ahead and then took a Sunday afternoon nap. That was nice.

Peggy I am addicted to Lady Emily series. I read the first book and now I have started the second book a Poisoned Season. Oh they are good books. Love them. I read the first one in an evening got so caught up in the story I lost track of time.

Judy got my tea swap list...thank you mam

Bunny how is the homework coming

Happy birthday Kim hope you have a great one.

I got my tea this week and boy was I glad. It is really cold here and would hate to not have tea. So I was happy. Gotta have my tea.

well I am off to read a bit more and have some tea.
love to you all
Tammy

Happy Sunday!

Spent the day sewing on a pillow for a swap, I'm loving it so much I'm going to have a hard time sending it off! We didn't have church today, we called it off because of a mass flu out-break in the area. Our Pastor and his wife have actually be quarantined by their doctor and a great many families are all ill. The local school had sent home huge amounts of sick kids all week. Since I have been ill and am still trying to get better, I have been avoiding the flu sick people like, well like the plague! So when you say your prayers, please remember our area!
Miranda, thanks for your cat stories. We miss having a cat, and when we are in a home again (not an apartment) we look forward to getting a cat or two. No dogs though, I am not a dog person.
Kimberly, happy 40th! I turned 40 last year, and so far so good!
I had lunch with my son a couple of days ago. I know he sounds good on the phone, but there is something about looking into someones eyes that is so much better at gauging a person's mood. He seems to be doing well with the break up. I'm a big believer in goals, and always taught the kids to set goals, and it's paying off now, because he is focusing on his goals to graduate this spring and to go into the police boot camp.(which means he is working out too, also good for him) I know we will have a few more bumpy days here and there, but I'm so proud of my son! He is turning into quite the young man!
Well, I am going to sew on my heart pillow some more...wish I could show you, it's a sort of crazy-quilt type design with the most beautiful fabrics and I'm adding in the embroidery stitches now. Lovely! I really am going to have a hard time sending this, I'll have to make one for me!
Blessing to all!

Hello porch pals. I'm getting ready to turn in for the night but thought i wouls stop by for a minute. wish the weekends were longer but oh well. All our snow melted and it got up to 65 degrees today! It was like spring and felt so good sitting out on my "real" front porch with my doggie Jemma. But alas, back to reality tomorrow. Down into the 30's and teens the rest of the week.
I did some mending this weekend and enjoyed an hour at the thrift shop yesterday. Love that place! More books! More fabric! I think I'm going to make a raggy quilt using old jeans and flannel shirts, so the $5 bag sale on clothes is a great way to stock up on material. I'm eying a nice old chair they have but hubby says we have enough furniture. But it would be so cute refinished with pretty patchwork upholstery....(I'll keep you posted on that one )
I got a pile of books from the library all about winter. Many of them are children's books. I get a bit glum this time of year so thought it would be fun to read as much as i can about the season and perhaps see it in a new light. I'm looking for an old wooden crate of box that i can store all my winter books in, you know something that could sit on the coffee table or maybe on the floor even.
Well, I'm off to bed. Night all.

Evening My Porchies....

Well, I feel like I have had Church all weekend! Which is always a good thing! Papa God and
I just had a great wknd together. We just cozied up all wknd...loving on each other.

Miss Miranda...I am not really a cat person (besides I am allergic to them)...but Mr. Newcomb is just too cute!!!
Must comment on the lazer pointer. I watched a show that was so sad to me...it was about a dog who was almost crazy (definately neurotic)with chasing light of any kind...because his original owners had constantly used a lazer light with him. It was almost impossible to rehabilitate him and they thought they were going to have to put him down...but they found someone who worked with him and finally got him over it. It was heart breaking to watch though....so, please don't use your lazer light very often with your pets.

Hi Teacher Tammy...I love that series too. I think I have read five of the books and need to see if there are more available. It really is a delightful series. Glad that you are enjoying it.
Also, glad that you got your new stash of tea.

Oh, before I forget...for those of you on the Tea Swap List for The Porch...My Address is NOT correct. So, here it is...just change it on your copy. Or 10 copies. LOL

Shanda...Your pillow sounds lovely!
Will keep your area in prayer with the Flu Plague. It has made it's way here too. So, far not a terrible out break but it just got here.

Glad your son has some good strong goals to keep his mind focused...that will indeed help.

Angie...glad you were on The Porch today too.

Sounds like you could use a bit of Light Therapy...like maybe you have winter depression??
I have several friends who have the same thing and they use light therapy daily during this time of year.
You could sit and work on your quilt in front of The Light and do two very beneficial things at once.
Hey...here's hoping you go get that rocking chair!!! I love rocking chairs. I have two red ones.
One is a Red wooden rocker on my home Porch and the other is a Red Leather Rocker/Recliner in my living room. I would have even more of them if I had more room in my home. (+:

Well, again I am off to read and snuggle in my cozy covers.
Night My Lovelies!

Hugs,
Peggy

I just got an awesome email. So exciting. I sold some of my pedigreed Satin rabbit babies and one of the ladies just emailed me this: "Hi Kimberly, Thought you would like to know I took the Satin Chinchilla doe I bought from you to a rabbit show in Idaho. Tinsel did awesome. She got best of opposite variety in show A and best of variety in show B. The judge said had she been a little older she would have been her Best of Breed. And from there she would have went on to Best of show so lots of potential" HOLY COW! I've got rabbits winning shows from my little ranch. Now I can add that in with my advertisements and maybe I'll sell more rabbits and the rabbits will pay for themselves and then I just have to get the goats and sheep to pay for themselves and then I'm golden. I needed encouraging news. So thankful for this.

Thank you for the Birthday wishes. SIGH just two more sleeps and I leave my third decade and move into the fourth. What will it bring? My party is on Saturday and it sounds like some folks are actually planning on coming!!!!!

I love the kitty stories. Especially the one where you screamed and the cat was wondering what your problem was. :) I love animal stories. Mainly because I'm so attached to them.


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

Oh No, Peggy! How sad :( I don't do anything to make the animals too crazy, they do that enough to me! If we pull out the laser pointer, it's only for a couple of minutes, and it's never that often. If they start getting too frisky we put it away and tell the fur-children they can play with it again later.

Well, I woke up this morning to an empty propane tank and it's supposed to snow in areas tonight or tomorrow. Luckily, we have the most WONDERFUL supply company a few towns over... 100 gallons is almost half the price with them compared to the other ones in town. And their people are nicer.

I've been working on this post for several hours, now... it's been busy and we're short handed at work. Something has to give!!!

Anyway, I need to get some more ppwk done, so I will talk to you all later!!

Hi Gals! Boy can I screw up when I screw up, or what? Peg, at least you know your address and didn't have to change YOUR 10 lists! hahaahahaha I can't believe your hubby, making you 10 copies. Guess he won't do THAT again! LOL Too Funny!!
Hopefully we're all fixed up now!
TLTammy...I gasped at your comment about being out of tea! WHAT??? Our Tea Queen...outta tea! Unheard of! *snicker/snort*
Well, I took mama out to eat for her Birthday! We went to a Mexican place here in town. It was so cold today with a bone-chilling wind that cut right to the bone when it blew. After three days of 65 degrees, we are spoiled. Mama didn't really want to go out in it, but I said we both should go out and get the stink blown off of us! That was always one of my moms favorite phrases when Patsy and I were little and didn't want to go out and play for whatever reason.
I wanted to take her to the craft shop next door but it's closed on Sunday and Monday. Rats! She would have loved the Civil War fabric room. The owner studied all the colors of wool that were used back then and she dyes all her own fabrics to match. I just want to stand there and touch them all. *giggle* She has about 4 rooms in her store and each one has a theme.
At Goodwill last summer,I bought some little girls skirts and some belts and I'm getting ready to try my hand at making shoulder bags out of them. My mom made me a denim bag years ago before they were popular around here and I love it. She made it out of an old pair of jeans. They were very popular out west where Dad and her were traveling at the time.So I figured little skirts made from bright or ruffled fabrics with bright belts for handles and embellished with beads,yo-yo's(yes I bought a yo-yo maker)*giggle*... and such, would be really fun to make. Wish me luck. Ya'll know I'm NOT crafty. But I can see these in my mind...I know I can do this! Yes?
Aren't cats fun? Our Rascal gets in his moods daily where he plays tag with us. He runs up and taps our ankles or nips our legs,then skips sideways, back hunched up and wants us to chase him. I tap him when I catch him and say,"You're it." Then I run. Sometimes though...he bites too hard, and gets scolded and told in a very stern voice..."NO BITES!" And he hates it when we point at him while telling him that. He knows when he's taken the "tag game" a little too far. Mom&Dad won't play with him or even look at him for awhile. He gets a "kitty time out!" hahaha He hates that!
Well,time to read and sip chocolate mint tea. I'm reading "The Cat Who Went To Paris!" It's kind of a kids book too, but fun. I love the idea of the winter theme books. Great idea! Pick a theme and read all about it....hmmmmmm....
Nite Porch-Buds!

Hey Kimberly...Congrats on one of your Rabbits getting Awards!
That is so very cool. And like you said, Great Advertizing for you.

Hope your Birthday Party is fun...you will have to tell us all about it.

Miss Miranda...I know that you are good pet parents. Just had to share that
Lazer Pointer Story with you because it was so awful. The owner of that dog
must have gone way over-board with that thing. The Pet Trainer that got him
over his neurotic pshchosis said he felt that it was a case of abusive use
of the lazer light.

Teacher Tammy...I found that Tasha Alexander does have another book out. I believe
it came out in November...so, I downloaded it. It will have to wait until I finish
this one I am currently reading (not one of hers)...but I was excited to get it.

Judy...hey, girlie we all make slip-ups...and like you said, atleast I know my own
address. LOL My husband took you at your word and thought there was a reason why
we needed 10 copies of the Tea List. Ha Ha!
Hope your mama had a good birthday! Too bad the craft store was closed.
Well, now that you bought a yoyo maker...maybe one of these days you will join
my yoyo swaps, I hostess. We'd love to have you join.
I know you can make those purses. You will have to post pictures as you complete each
one and we can celebrate your victories!!

Well girls...I am tired. I never got a nap today. Off to read for the night (really morning). LOL

More tomorrow.
blessings and hugs,
peggy

You guys all make me smile. I just love the chatter. It seems that these days there's nobody on their porch any more. We're all scattered aren't we! Thank goodness for technology linking all together.
Hubby nixed the chair idea,said we have enough furniture. sigh. I had such a creative idea for upholstery and paint. Oh well. And we don't know how long we will be in this house so i guess i need to keep that in my mind before I lug more junk treasures home.
Judy, I love your idea of the purses. I hope you will share pictures with us. And once you start making those yo-yo's you won't be able to stop! I pre-cut lots of circles for our camping trips and then sit and make the yo-yo's while sitting around the camp-fire. My sister in the UK makes lovely big ones out of drapery fabrics and lace and then attaches them to dowels covered in rag strips and they looks like gorgeous floppy flowers.
Peggy, yes, I do get SADD in the winter months. Really low Vitamin D, but this year I'm working hard to combat it and yes, you are right, a warm sunny window and some quilting or knitting. Sounds like heaven to me! I'm from the UK and very fair skinned so I tend to stay out of the sun anyway. (5 minutes in the sun and i burst into flames) I sure would love a golden tan. tried the spray tan but let's just say, um, it wasn't quite what i expected. Felt kinda silly standing in a big black box, naked except for a shower cap, reaching to press the button and getting sprayed.(I only did it because I had a free coupon-no really.)And I wasn't a lovely honey golden color, more like a faded navel orange......ho-hum.

Judy, the purses sound like a good project. Let us know how they turn out. Remember the first one is always a big learning curve. After that it is sort of just working the kinks out.
Kim, that is great about the rabbit and should boost you right up there in the breeder category. Just be sure to bring up that one in any advertizing or talks you have with those seeking to buy. I know that blowing your own horn is a bit uncomfortable at times but it needs to be done on occasion.
Miranda, I have one of the pointers for my kitties but use it sparingly. One of the kitties K’ao, chases it for a while then very pointedly stops and looks over at me and what I have in my hand. “OK I had enough exercise. You can turn it off now.” Dubh the other kittie is not quite so quick. It takes him a bit longer to discover he is never going to catch it and give up..
Peg. I am going to have to try out those books you were talking about. Sounds interesting.
Hi Angie. My DH, now deceased, was born in Glasgow and immigrated to Canada with his parents at 8 yoa. He had a bit of SADD. Living in Alaska that could be a trial at times. Music is what kept him going. When he was playing it didn’t matter what it was like outside
Well all, the office saga is still ongoing. There are several matters that the other guy cannot or will not handle and my exbosses need to hire another attorney, a friend of theirs, to help out. That necessitates getting me involved as the others either cannot or will not give the hired counsel access to the electronic records. I think it is a bit of both actually. So I am being asked to brave the lion’s den one more time to get that taken care of. I will attempt that but I do not like it. So next week maybe we will see what happens on that front.
Somehow the computer ate the first post I began so back to good old WordPerfect. I am copying and posting it as I do not feel like doing all that typing only to see it vanish in the blink of an eye.

Blessings all.

Yesterday was so aweful... got off work late, and had to get groceries and gasoline before driving another 30 minutes to get home. It was Josh's birthday, so I was trying to get home in time to get the animals fed and make a special supper, but that did not happen :( To top it off, it was gloomy, sleety, rainy and COLD COLD COLD.

Today seems happier... it's bright sunshine out, the animals seem happier, the temp is still cold but pleasant, not bone chilling.

I was looking at buying paper drinking straws for the wedding - like the ones that they had in my Grandparents' day - and found a website a while back that sold them. I was seconds away from purchasing them when I found that they wanted TWICE the amount of the order JUST to ship them!! Soooooooo instead, I went to Bing, and searched for paper straws. I found them at ANOTHER website called The Sugar Diva (www.thesugardiva.com) and the prices are better, selection is better (they have coke bottle sized straws, which is awesome because we're serving glass bottle cokes!), and the shipping is less than HALF what the other site wanted. PLUS they have the crepe paper strawberry baskets I want!! GLEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

I'm in a good place, today I have a 3 day weekend, and I will be working on my dress. No, I still have not finished it. I keep getting my "free" time taken up by things, but now that birthdays and holidays are out of the way, I'm buckling down and doing it. 87 days left until I walk down the aisle!!!!

I also figured out what I am doing for the veil... I looked VERY VERY dowdy in the original veil I made, so I'm going to rebuild it. I'm going to do a short, net "veil" with a hand made flower and crystals, and then after the ceremony, switch to a crystal headband I'd intended to drape the long veil from.

I'm keeping things a lot more simple than in the beginning, but it works. It will not only be a lot less work, but a lot more enjoyable. The venue really does not need much work, and the wedding is going to stay simple anyway, so I feel a lot less stressed about my changes.

Momma bought me a magazine - Flea Market Style Weddings. I have post-it tabs, scribbles and marks all through it, and I just picked it up from her house on Saturday! It's FANTASTIC!!!!

And - I can look into learning how to be a wedding/event coordinator... I'm so very tempted!!! What do y'all think???

Bunny, I try to :( But they block it at work and I don't have internet at home, yet... all the girls I chat with on Wedding Wire love it but I'd have to go to Momma's house to work with it, and I only go maybe once or twice a month!

Thank you Judy for the ecard!

Today is the big day. Golly Gosh how did this happen???? Oh I know, one day at a time. :P My Daddy called this morning to wish me a happy birthday. The kids sang me happy birthday at breakfast and gave me their cards and gifts. Sweet little nuggins. Haven't heard a peep from hubby. Guess that speaks volumes. Gonna go to the hairdresser on Friday and see if she can make me beautiful and then Saturday will be my party. WooooHoooooo. I'm looking forward to it. Think the kids are more excited than I am though. :)

Well recess is almost over better get back to work.

Hugs to all


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