Thank you Ladies for your kind words and encouragements. I don't believe I could even begin to tell you how much this little cabin means to me. I have never had a place of my own, and I'm 41 this year. When I was young and married, my ex and I were two days away from sign on our 1st home, when I discovered his other girlfriends. I have since lived with family, or in an apartment (which I love apartment living, I'm not at all knocking it!) I've watched my brothers and sisters buy homes, sell them and buy larger homes. I've visited friends in their lovely homes, helped them with remodles and painting. I've been to young couples house-blessings and other open house parties. And I was always thankful for their blessings, because I knew God had a plan for me. I've poured my life into raising my kids, homeschooling them and meeting all their needs on one income. I have had no oppertunity to save for a future home. And last year, the property that my daughter and I had been clearing by hand, to maybe build a small home on, my parents gave to my brother to build his house on. The land didn't belong to me, it was just a dream, and I have to admit that I cryed after they gave him the land. But I am glad my brother will build out here, and will live close to us!

So when this little cabin became mine, my heart just soared! It needs alot of TLC and I've got alot of TLC to give. It will take years to get it to look like I want, but it will be years I will get to work on my own home. I'm overwelmed with God's grace and His plans!

I am glad to share this journey with you and when it is complete, I hope you ladies will come for a visit, for a cup of tea if your passing thru or stay the weekend. I want to always share my blessing.

I'll take a picture of the work done in the bathroom and post hopefully by Wednesday.

Very quick post tonight, I am going to take a shower and go to bed early. It rained and snowed again today, now it is frozen out there and everything is an ice rink. I don't think I will be going anywhere again tomorrow!!!
Hope all are doing well and staying warm and dry.
Have a great evening,

Evening my sweet sisters,
hope yall had a good day. It was cold here but nothing like some of you are experiencing. Yall keep warm and inside. Good day at school. Butterflies must have had a talking from their moms about their behavior. We had parent conferences last week...had to tell a few that clipping wings was happening but this too would pass.

Peggy so good to see you here. I continue to pray for your family and for you to get better. Tea is always good...you know I would say that. My bible study is good. WE are finishing up Ann Voskamps gratitude study tomorrow and then beginning Beth MOore's study on Paul. I am excited to be back to her studies. I need more in depth. Still working on scarf but it is nearly done will post picture when done. I finished the Lady Emily series...so wish there were more. Now I am reading the The Secret History of the PInk Carnation by Lauren Willig...I think the Lady Emily series is better but this series is not bad

Shanda love your cabin...so cute

Jan we need to move you warmer places...my goodness you have had it hard.

Bunny hope you had a good day today.
well girls time for tea and have one load of laundry to fold.

love to you all
Tammy

Tea is like being in the stars with God.

Evening Girls...I am
doing better both physically (not totally well but improving) and spiritually...Papa God and I are just cozy-ing up real close.
He is my refuge and my strength. I have been doing a Word Study on Deliverance...knowing only God can deliver us from those who set themselves up as our enemies. It is really an awesome study. I did the same word about 12 years ago...but was hitting it from a different perspective then. This study God is using to encourage my heart ...and he is infusing aspects of what I am teaching with Beth Moore's James Study...into my Word Study. He is so good at doing that...double lesson thing.
I hope to start Blogging it in a few days...as I think what he is teaching me will also be helpful to others.

The rain started back today...but I am not in too much pain from the Fibro...which I Praise God for. I first typed
"I rain started back today....I guess I feel so one with Nature...it's becoming a natural expression of myself.
Rain/Peggy/Pain LOL

Well, another way God is good girls...I get to go play with my grand-daughters for a whole week, next week. They will help Grandmama wash away the blues over all this difficult situation. Which I want you to know...I have turned totally over to God and left it there. But I do hurt for our adult kids. But I know God has them in the Palm of His Hand.
So, My Oldest Son Chris will come to pick me up Sunday on his way back to Seattle: as he has to come to town for something and then his wife Faith will bring me back home the following Saturday...as she hasd to come to Portland for something. So, I don't have to do anything but go Love on my beautiful girls and enjoy their sweetness. Just what the Dr. Ordered!!!

OK....just general blab tonight...now off for more tea and reading. But not for long as it is quarter to 2:00.

Sleep Tight,
peggy

Everything outside is one big sheet of ice. The plows came by to scrape it, and it did not pick much of it up. This is when I wished I lived out on a farm, I could at least go out into the barns, feed the animals, etc. Here, I cannot go out onto the sidewalks for fear of falling. I am hoping I can get out tomorrow to go for breakfast with my sister, which we have done for over 24 years now.
Peggy, I know you will feel like a new woman when you get home from loving your grandchildren!!! I think that is the kind of refreshment you need right now. Enjoy!!!!
Tammy, sounds like your week is starting on a good note. Hope the rest of the week keeps the butterflies fluttering quietly.
Shanda, when my hubby retires next year, we plan on travelling the whole country, and hopefully getting to meet alot of you wonderful ladies. I would love to see your cabin in any shape it is in. It surely is a piece of history!!!
Well, time to get dressed and get the day going. ave a warm dry day,

Ok, it's been a whole day and where the heck is everybody! I'm getting lonely here.
Judy, thank you for the e-card. I can't wait for spring myself.

Had another big row with my accounting teacher. Same jerk as last time. He handed out the solution to our homework and then without really looking at it, told us it was wrong. He then started to work the problem on the board and when I tried to get him to talk about the difference between the two, he put up his hand and told me to be quiet until he was done. When he was done, he got this funny look on his face and asked for the solution he had given me back. He realized he had been wrong. I was so mad, I just packed up and left class. My friend that stayed said he worked the problem and made some feeble excuse about why he thought it had been wrong. I had another class with him later today and he wouldn't even make eye contact with me. We had a test and I finished in about 5 minutes and then left class again. Hopefully he has gotten the message I'm a bit mad at him.

Ok, I got that off my chest.

I sure hope everyone is safe, healthy and warm. It's just too quiet here.

Hi all. Lucking again. I am in the middle of Siberia in 1892 working up to getting a young woman home to Alaska the hard way. Until I get his done I am not much good for anything else.
Hugs all blessings.

Hi My Porchies...all three of you who came on today.

Janet...it will be nice to be with my girls. I can forget all about life's problems and just love on them and let them love on me. My son and daughter-in-love also.
Madeline started a new pre- school last week...she had been on a waiting list for a year. Her boyfriend
(they are both four) goes to that school...so, I told her to have a Fabulous first day of School but not to kiss Finn...because Boys have Cooties! She informed me he didn't have what ever those were.

Bunny...Oh, that twit of a teacher. Good for you just packing up and walking out. How come you have him for two classes? Oh, you poor girl. I think that guy just flat out has it in for you. I would be a bit mad at him too. More than a bit!!!!
Your are the more Mature person...keep it up girlfriend.

Cherime...I am glad that you got the tea.
Didn't hear but from a couple of you but I am assuming everyone just had more important things they were dealing with...like terrible weather, viruses and such!

Today we had to be out of our Apartment...or so we were told about 8:00 because Arborists were going to be clearing tree branches, trees etc in our part of the complex. The tree grinding machine is so noisy...you couldn't stand to stay in your apartment. So, we got up early and headed to one of our two favorite coffee shops. Spent about an hour there and then headed to the other one Barnes and Noble...because you can go look and books and magazines there etc.
We finally came home about 2:00 pm and found out that they had never pulled the Machine into our area...even though they trimmed our area. It was the getting up at 7:30 that we hated. We don't do mornings since retiring. But they have done a really good job around the complex. We have a lot of green space and a lot of trees and roddies etc...so it is nice that they actually take such good care of it.

This afternoon I swept off my porch from all the falling debree and re-hung a wind chime. I took Snickers for his walk, then came back and gave myself a hair cut.
Then all evening I just read and played Words With Friends and Draw Something.
Just a real quiet day easy day.

Hope I don't have to send out The Porch Posse tomorrow!!!!!

Oh Judy...thanks for the cute E-Card. It made me want Spring even more.

Love and Squishies,
peggy

Well, I finally got to go out yesterday for breafast with my sister. Tuesday I went out and chopped an inch of ice off most of the sidewalks so I could at least walk to my car on Wednesday. Yesterday it got to 33 degrees after 10 in the morning. It was sunny and bright. So beautiful!!! Woke up this moning to snowing and so far about an inch on the ground. Supposed to be cold again for the weekend. Back to the teens. This up and down weather is making me up and down.

My son is going to an auction Satrday, so I will be working Friday and Saturday. That is okay because we did not have anything planned, and I get out of the house.

Bunny, Hang in there and kill him with kindness. It will get to him. It is hard to have to go through that and pretend it does not bother you. Would talking to him alone help? Maybe if he knows what he is doing, he will think twice next time.

Peggy, it sounds like you are living in a nice complex. Glad you were able to get out andwalk Snickers.

Cherime, Sounds like you are busy right now.

Hope the rest of you are doing well. Have a great Valentine's Day!!!!!!

Bunny that is what teacher reviews at the end of the semester are for. When I was going to vet tech classes, the Dean of our department taught radiology. It was a 2hr class.once a week. He utilized 45 minutes of it. On tests I would tell him verbatim what the answers were...wrong.
At the end of the semester we took 1 radiograph. Only 1 came out out of the whole class. I did pass the class. Oh but wait it gets b

Better. 5 years later another university picked up the vet tech course but had use of the other universitiies radiology and surgical areas. Guess what? The cray machine wasn't properly calibrated and the developing solutions. (They were developed by hand not in a processor) hadn't been changed in years. Go figure! Good luck to you.

Nice to see a few of you shook off the cold and came to visit.

Cherime, dig in there girl. Hope you stay warm up there.

Peggy, have fun with granddaughters. Sounds like you need some love.

Janet, so glad you got a little blue sky. It will be back before you know it.

That teacher knows very well what I think and knows at this pint he was wrong. It will be interesting to see what he does on Monday. I'm tempted when my education is over, I'm going to write a letter to the dean and express my feelings on the quality of education I got. Although, I'm considering putting together a proposal for a re-entry program for students like me and running it. I just need to do some research and find grant money. So I can't be too hard on them. I may need them later. But something will be said.

Today is cold and overcast. Maybe some rain in sight. Fibro isn't being nice.

At least today is a short day..only working until 1pm.

Later all. Dream of green! It will be here before you know it.

Happy Valentine's Day, porchies!

Wow! that is some rose peggy, LOVE it! looks fake, it's amazing..

Hubby and I have been passing the time by putting a puzzle together, he plays the ukelele daily, he's still learning it, but it sounds great. I've crocheted a few dish cloths. Hubby brought me a bunch of just ready to open daffodils the other day. we put them in water and they are wide open! forsythia is budding, it's all to soon. mother nature may play a cruel joke on us and freeze it all off, but we sure are enjoying it..we even heard peepers the last 2 days and some song birds!
anyone else seeing signs of spring?

hugs n prayers for all...

Hello Girlies,
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!
Hubby & I went out and made a day of fun for ourselves Teusday! We hit every Goodwill within a 40 mile radius,plus a new thrift store that was even cheaper than Goodwill.It was in Hartville(Amish Country).We ate at the Hartville Kitchen and he gave me a necklace at the table. He loves doing that.We wore ourselves out shopping.
Then Wedsday was Mama's day out. We went to a Dollar Tree and to Goodwill in that town. I was all shopped out but I bought a lot of fruit at Green Farms. That was my BIG spree! hahaha We ate at Uncle Bob Evans,our favorite place. *giggle* Then on the way home we got our usual Micky D's ice cream cone.That's a "given" when we go out. We stop at the MCD's in our own town and have ice cream cones....EVERY time! hahaha Then we have to sit in the car at her apartment and eat them, so that we can have free hands to carry in all her packages. We are a couple of nuts...but we have fun! SOOOOOO.....that's what I've been up too.
Oh, Hubby had to work today(Valentines day)but when i came downstairs he had a card on the floor in the L-room, a card on the chair and when I went into the kitchen there was the biggest card I've ever seen on the floor leaning up against the table leg....probably 2 ft x 1 ft. Crazy man! Yup...he wuvs me!(ya think?) hahaha
Peggy, I can just feel your excitement as you wait to go see those Gr-Babies! I'm tickled for you. I hope every trace of your "flu-buggie" is gone so that you can enjoy that time with them to the fullest.(BIG grin on my face)
LOVE that rose pic! Gorgeous!
Patsy, that was so sweet of Jim to bring in flowers to you. I'm still enjoying the flowers Dave gave me for my birthday. Still purty!
Janet,so glad you got "chipped" out of your ice-cave and got to go out for a bit!heehee
Well, I hope you Gals all do something enjoyable for Cupid Day!
Make it a great day!

Peggy Ann,
That is the most beautiful rose I have ever seen, and I have 24 rosebushes!! Have you ever tried painting? That would be a great subject.
Lots of love on Valentine's Day.

Happy Valentine's to all my fellow farm chix! Peggy that's a beautiful rose. What kind is it? My dh and I got more firewood today. Got a box of chocolates and a card. Took red tinted sugar cookies to my son's Valentine's party at school. They were frosted with vanilla frosting and sprinkled with rainbow Jimmies. Regarding the radiology class story, I forgot to mention that I was a temporary TA at the other university when I found out about the xray machine.

Patsy,
Aren't daffodils great? The previous owner of my home planted bulbs all over the yard and these popped up seemingly overnight. After you cut them they last a week or more.
Enjoy,

Love all the flowers! I'm pretty much a ba humbug for Vday. Never got anything from either husband. But always did something for them. Now that I'm single it just doesn't mean much.

But glad everyone else is enjoying it. I'll live through all of you.

HI My Porchies...Hubby got me a Huge Valentine Card today too. It is rediculously large!
But Fun!!! He took me out for Valentines Dinner a couple days ago...as I had to teach
Bible Study tonight.

A lot of the gals didn't come as they were doing Valentine Stuff with their hubby's or families.

I got spoiled by my MJF Secret Sister today. Wow...she is just great about sending me a pkg about every two weeks.
She sent me a beautiful Heart Frame, two Vintage Looking Valentine plagues, and a bag of Godiva Chocolates (My Favorite). I was a good girl and shared them at Bible Study...so, I wouldn't sit down and devour the entire bag by myself.
I also got YoYo Hearts in the Mail today. So, I had a lovely Valentines Day!

Patsy...oh, I love fresh flowers in the house and especially Spring Flowers. We don't have anything blooming here yet.
Crocus are up but not blooming.

Judy...Oh, sounds like hubby was good to you too.Gotta Love sweet men!
Glad you and mama had a fun time.
I can't think of a more fun day than going to all your favorite haunts for bargains. And ice cream cones sound kind of cold for the weather you have been having. Brrr!

Bunny...it is not nice for husbands not to be somewhat romantic on Special Occassions. That would have soured me on Valentines Day too. It hurts when you are a giving person but others don't give back. We should write a book..."Marriage Rules For Men".

Cherime...you were saying that you were trying to get some e-books published. Well, I just want to share with you...that my DH put the books he wrote in e-book format and put them out there for sale and he has been totally ripped off. People have made
his books available on their web-sites and they are getting the money for his books...not him. And other than demanding that they cease and desist...which has done no good...you can't get back what they have out and out stollen. So, he will no longer do e-books. Just thought I would share that with you.

Glad that you all liked the Rose...it isn't one of mine. I have the picture in my Picture Library but I don't even know where I got it from. I take many pictures of flowers...but I don't think that was one of mine. I think it was just a beautiful flower I got off of google images.

OK...I am tired, off to bed I go before I fall asleep typing.

hugs and squishies,
peggy

Peggy, did your DH use the Smashwords site? That is where I put mine. I even got one of the special book numbers. They are realllllly picky about formatting but other than that it appears to be a good place. I have seen some books that started on Smashwords on Amazon for the Kindle.
Bunny, my first husband was more interested in getting than giving. My second was the kind of guy who the minute I woke up told me happy V Day. He did not have a lot of money to get me things but the would vacuum the house and being told that he loved me a whole lot made for for a whole bunch of stuff.
Grandma's taxi service has to get going to get GDD to work.
Blessings all.

Aww Bunny,
I am sorry you are down on Valentine's Day. I had two ex's that didn't do much for holidays either other than one got me a fake rose from the gas station once.
I know that hurts but I am having fun sending pictures of my birthday flowers my daughter sent me last year or pictures of my yard flowers to those whose husbands are on the road and would send flowers if they could.
Cheer up.

Dad blast it, I tried to down load pictures from my camera and now I cannot get them to come over to this forum. I am highly upset because my son gave me a vase of flowers for V-Day. They are so beautiful and I wanted to share with you girls. Maybe I will get it figured out one of these days.

Peggy....I have never seen a rose like that, very beautiful.

Bunny.....I was like you when I was single. I hated to see Valentines day because it seemed like every woman I knew got flowers or went out with their sweethearts. Now it is not so terrible.

You all take care and talk to ya later.
