Shanda....you should be so proud of your daughter, she is beautiful and the hair and dress are just lovely. She will be needing watching when it comes to the boys!!!! Well maybe if you just leave your shotgun laying on the table when her date comes to get her, hopefully he gets the hint and treats her like a lady. My daughter started dating a young man last summer and the first thing I told him was she is MY daughter and you had better treat her like a lady. I do believe he got the message.

Your cabin looks so cool, I can't wait for more pictures. If you ask me, I don't think you put on enough pictures.

Hope you are having a great day and this is to all the porch girls.

Hey Porchies!

Shanda...Love! Love! Love! The bathroom! I so love anything cabin lookin! The roll top is very similar to what I'm wantin for a beadin table. I think they are so beautiful and so handy.Blue is definitely your DD color!

Kimberly...I am so jealous! I love sheep and I want to have some as soon as we get us our own place. Hubby is totally on board so long as they are for meat. He would live on lamb meat alone if it weren't so expensive.

I am preppin for my trip like crazy. I have my list of things to do to get ready. I got a brand new rollin luggage bag last month to use for my book sales, so I'm gonna use it.

I called and asked about bein able to bring it to the show and they said yes it was allowed, just so long as it is kept zipped. They had someone caught a few years back knockin things into theirs and walkin off. So now you will be checked and must provide reciepts if you are caught rollin around with it open. It irritates me how people like that always ruin things for the rest of us.

I have to get my list of beads I'm needin ready and put the ones I need to match into my little travel case. I am also workin on some new earrings to match my family bracelet so I can wear them to the show. I am so excited!!!!

I'm off to do the last little bit of laundry so I'll be free to work on my beadwork for a few days. I just can't wait!!!

Hi Kimberly,
Hemet is in Riverside County in southern CA. I previously lived in Orange County my whole life so this is inland from there about 65 miles.

Thank you ladies for your kind words, I do have the most-est beautiful-est young ladies in the world! My heart just about pops with love and pride for both my kids!

And I'm glad you ladies are enjoying the remodel, if I began to become to self absorbed and post too much, let me know! I've waited a long time for this little home and I am over the moon!

Party at my place, in about a year!!!! All Porchies are invited! Ha!

Kimberly- congrats on your sheep! maybe when I get this spinning thing down, I'll have to hit you up for some wool! I think it would be neat to buy and spin wool from a farm girl! I'm planning on a few raised beds myself. I'd like to see pictures of yours!

Netty, If a boy ever comes over, I'll have out my shotgun, 22 rifle, and 40 cal Smith and Wesson! And a shovel for good measure! Dating...what a scary word!

Buuny, have you had a class with Mr. Grumps again? Hope things get better, or your semester flies by!

Well, I've got laundry to finish and a closet that IS going to get cleaned out and ready for packing!

Shanda, my sheep are hair sheep. For meat only. I'm wanting to learn how to spin and weave but for this I want to get alpacas or maybe rabbits..... or goats.... or another breed of sheep.... or...... Did I mention I would have been one happy girl on Noah's ark?!?!

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

oh, I thought Hair sheep was sheep raise for "hair" HA! I've got a lot to learn about live stock. I've never tried lamb, guess I could give that a go! Live and learn!

Kimberly...I love the necklace your daughter made! I love necklaces that are only beaded or worked in the front and open in the sides and back. It looks really good!

Hello my porchies...

I am having so much fun with with my grand daughters. They are so adorable and giving me lots of
Comic relief. I just love them sooooooo very much. The youngest loves to be read to....she will bring
You every book she owns. Lol I love reading to her. Today the four year old and I took a long walk
up a very Steep Seattle hill. We stopped along the way and took a lot of pictures of whatever she
Found fascinating. Mostly flowers, rocks, and a snail she found.

She is doing karate now...so I get to go to her class with her tomorrow after preschool. And Friday she has swimming lessons that I will get to watch too. She has a new boyfriend at preschool name Oliver. I guess she kicked
Finn to the curb. Lol Kids are so funny and so entertaining!!!

I love to watch their interaction with parents too. They have their very first cousin being born this week. A little boy
Cousin and everyone including mom and dad are pretty excited. Then in 3 more months their second boy cousin will be born. They are glad to have boys...instead of girls.

Shanda...loving the pictures. Keep them coming. Your daughters hair was amazing and she looked so pretty in that
Gown. You must be a proud momma.

Kimberly...loving all your farm plans. And tell your daughter her necklace was nicely done too. And I love being
The Porch Momma and keeping my chicks under my wings. Lol

Netty...that is really neat that you and your daughter are going Glamping. And that will be fun to meet other
Farmgirls. At my age...my idea of camping is a really nice motel. Lol

Bunny...I thought your mom did not want to take care of her friend because of his health issues? Did she forget
about her last visit? Lol. I just bet she wont stay gone long. Lol

Angela...have fun on your road trip. And Ai loved your Family bracelet.

Hi to Teacher Tammy, Judy, Janet, and our new gals and everyone else too.

Hugs and Squishies,
peggy

Kimberly, your daughters necklace is sweet.

Peggy, glad you are having such a good time. Lots of new babies coming your way!
My mom has always been a gold digger. She knows he has a very decent income. I also know she has probably decided that it will be well worth the time and effort. She will pull the religion tag out living in sin and all and want to get married after stepfather dies. That way she can inherit his pension and SSI. He is 82 years old. She probably figures she doesn't have long to wait. I know how she thinks. Been there done that. I guess if he gets what he wants out of the deal its ok. He had prostrate cancer so I know it isn't sex. He just wants someone to take care of him. So probably a win-win both ways. I just hate her motives and she hasn't worked to hide them.

Well, big test tomorrow. Still giving jerky teacher the silent treatment. I just take my tests and then leave. He hasn't been actually doing any teaching in class anyway. But I'm sending a big message. He has been there for 30 years. It is such a small school and low pay. Finding someone else just isn't going to happen. The Dalles is not a place many people want to move to.

Later all. Stay warm and safe.

Hi Girlies!Man, it's snowing like crazy and blowing sideways.Gusty too.25temp/windchill.Not much snow on the ground...just a skiff.Crazy windy though.
Angela,another cute bracelet. Neat idea with family stone colors.Kudos girl!I like the repurposing of the china cabinet.Always a good thang! haha ~woohoo~...roadtrip. hahaha
Hubby and I wwent to Kidron to Lehman's Old-time hardware yesterday. It was a nice sunny day and we had a great time and good food too.
Shanda, I love all the pics. Keep'em coming!I can't wait to see that desk in place with the sink in it.I like those therapeutic tubs too, But like you said...BIG bucks! WOW! 56 hairpins...makes my head itch just thinking about it! hahaha But your daughter looked so pretty!How old is she?
Netty, I was over on the glamping thread a couple of weeks ago reading where C.J. had been and was going next.They sound like a fun bunch.I'd like to do that sometime. I'm not a "Sleep-on-rocks&eat-burnt-food"kinda gal, but glamping I think I could do! *giggle*
WooHoo, sounds like the farming thing is coming together for you....ruffled feathers&fur and all! Nothing is going to stop you! You are a Rock on a Roll! heehee Good for you!
You aren't a wussy! I have lower lumbar troubles, and that slight bend/leaning forward causes terrible spasms for me. No warning either.I know where you are coming from. Raised beds would be great!
Kimberly, I like how you spelled Nikole's name!
Shanda, I thought hair sheep meant wool/fiber too! *sigh* We learn a lot from each other on here don't we?
Hi Peg, So glad you are enjoying your comical&cuddly Grand-Babies!They sound like, just what the Doctor ordered! Have fun!
Well, I'm gonna make some cocoa and watch TV awhile with Hubby!
Make it a great evening Gals!
Stay warm!

There is too much on here to address each of you tonight. Our power has been flickering on and off all day, the west side of town was out for part of the day. All the schools were closed again today, another blizzard!!!! Very high winds and only 6 degrees, so way below zero with the wind chill. We got about 4 inches of snow, but it was and still is blowing like mad. We have had a rough winter this year with both the cold and the snow. One nice thing, it stays light out later now, it is nice to see the sun still out after eating supper!!! I am looking on the bright side!!!
Have a great evening,

Holy cow, it's been too long! I've lost my place!!! *dusting off seat on the swing*

What a crazy couple of weeks!! We went to Oklahoma this past weekend to see Josh's parents... if I start ranting, it will be an entire page unto itself. Basically, I was shown for sure that my future MIL has been manipulating her kids and some other fun stuff.

Dad is not as sick as Josh and I expected him to be, but still not well, either. He's on Oxygen, and forgets to breathe through his nose, some times, but he's not as disfigured as we thought he'd be. They have to do a second biopsy because the first one came back abnormal, but inconclusive. We should get the results from THAT on Friday.

We had more drama come up with the "friend" who was so willing to watch our house/animals for us. We took the rat terrier with us, but left the Catahoulas and the cats at home... He left my dogs outside over night!! He only admitted to one night, but neither Josh nor I feel like he was ever actually there overnight. The bad part is that he was SUPPOSED to be a groomsman, but we're kind of thinking we might need to reconsider that.

Other than drama, we've had a pretty good week, and I was able to meet Josh's oldest brother and get to know his wife. Apparently, family members who aren't normally social are social with me, teehee.

I have been transferred to another branch within my company. I was in my home town of Round Rock when I started, and stayed there. But, they needed me elsewhere so, as soon as we got back from vacation, I was sent to this other branch. I was VERY wary at first, but things are so much better, so far. Less drama, more help from coworkers, and it's actually a shorter drive by about 15 minutes. Perhaps it was unexpected, but so far, so good!!

Well girls, i hope you are all doing well, and I will try to pop in more often!

Hi Ladies!
What a wonderful day!!!
when it's time, it's time.......even with bitterly cold temps & serious wind chill our first jersey calf was born! Puddin' Pie is a super Mom being a first timer & baby has drank!
We're beef & sheep producers so 4 jersey heifers are quite something on our farm!
Jerseys are really unusual in our area so we looked a long time to find one!!!! We went to JUST look at one heifer & seeing that there was 4 half sisters hubby decided that we better not break up a good thing! LOL So they ALL found a new home. It's been quite the show stopper for folks to drop in & tell us stories of their Grandma's cows. LOL They're spoiled to the core just like they should be! LOL
ALL the hard work really does melt away when you see a new life on the farm!!
There's nothing better.......well maybe one little tiny thing.......

IT'S A GIRL!!!!! IT'S A GIRL!!!!!! IT'S A GIRL!!!!! Did I mention.....IT'S A GIRL!!!!!
Puddin' Pie & baby are under 3 heat lamps in our insulated barn to stay warm.
Our other 3 heifers are any minute!
Farm Hugs
So Excited! Judy

PS.....Hey RED.....she here!!
Will post pics when camera stops freezing up! GRRRRRRR!
It's a Girl!!!!!

Hi Terri!
These babies have fancy names & all kinds of numbers for their pb paperwork but they're ALL looking for every day names that we'll use to call them from the pastures.

Any suggestions??????
Our cows are called....
Buttercup for the original jersey we had, Puddin' Pie that calved today, & 2 FGs named the others Sassy & Sugar Plum.

Just came from the barn check & baby is up drinking! Happy Dance!
Hugs Judy

howdy ladies,
It is cold here and we are preparing for a snow storm..they are sayig our area could get 6 to 9 inches and I am praying for a snow day from my butterflies. Their barameters were off the meter today. I am sure a storm is coming. my dear hubby has been sick finally convinced him to go to dr and he has bronchitis...so he is on medicine now. Hoping he will sleep better tonight.

Bunny hope your test went well

Peggy so glad you are enjoying your granddaughters. I am hoping weather permitting to visit my dear grandson for his 3rd birthday this weekend. He is do darn cute.

well time for tea and some reading
love to you all
Tammy

Judy....I am so excited!!!! Cant wait to find out what Sassy has. Do I get to name her young too?
I bet you and Walt are just such ecstatic and proud owners and feel like expectant grandparents. Lol

Ok....All My Porchies....I am having such a great time with my family. Faith Marie's brother and girl friend
Had their baby this morning. Faith stopped into meet baby Liam on her way to work and then my son and
I went to meet him this afternoon. The parents were so exhausted and the baby was so tiny and adorable.
Then Faith took Madeline up tonight so she could meet Liam. She is now in love with her baby cousin.

I heard from my youngest son that my DH fell in the bathroom this morning and bruised his ribs. I feel badly
For him but there is nothing I can do until I get home Saturday. Shane tried to take him to the Urgent Care but
He wouldn't go. He hates when I leave to visit the granddaughters and gets moody every time and that is enough
To deal with when I get home...now this. All I can say is it is a good thing I love him because nobody else would
put up with him. Lol

Well, I read all the posts, praying for you girls with all the snow and cold. Praying also for those with new business
Ventures and home remodles. And everyone else too.

Bunny...I think your mom must drive you as crazy as my mom does me. Lord help us... is all I can say!

Hugs,
Peggy

Hi all
Angela great stuff.
Shoot, ladies I have enough trouble naming characters in stories without naming other critters.
Peg, my first husband was like that, not so my DH who passed. Oh do I miss that man!
My GDD is getting more hours at work and is loving her job. She called her adoptive mom the other day and that lady was a bit bitter about why GDD is working, enjoying it and has all these plans for the future and it doing that here with me instead of down there with her. I do not treat GDD like a little retarded baby, she is an adult and I can guide but not push and God knows it does no good in any how.
Sitting here writing this new book has it's advantages. Since I am home and can keep the little wood stove going all day, the consumption of fuel oil has gone down. I may have to feed the stove a lot cause the fire box is so small but it works.
Bunny, some people are opportunists and what tends to amaze me is how you can have those mixed into families where everyone else is caring and giving. Go figure. Good luck on staying clear of Mr. I-have-tenure-and-could-care-less supposed teacher.
Jan, stay warm.
Blessings all, back to 1890's Russia for me.
