Teacher Tammy...I loved your story. How priceless! Kids really think they can get away with the obvious sometimes. I know we can probably all think of a time or two that we tried to pull the wool over somebodies eyes when we were growing up. But it was always better if we were caught and learned a lesson or two from the experience.

Glad that you had a nice day today and that you were able to enjoy it. Our day here was beautiful too.
We didn't not get that thunder storm that we were suppose to...which delighted me to know end.
Hopefully I will be able to make it to Bible Study tomorrow night.

OK...it is so quiet on the Porch today...I hope everyone was blessed with a Gorgeous Day.

nighty night,
peggy

Well drat! Got notice from smashwords that I needed to correct a problem with Daughter of The Raven. I think I got it fixed. I hope anyway.
While I was at it I uploaded a little romance set in pipeline days up here.
Well the GDD is babysitting a friend's special needs child. If the mom gets the job she is hoping for, then GDD may become a live in babysitter. That will be good for her friend and not go good for GDD. But she is willing to do it. I am not going to say anything.
Hope everyone has a great Easter and HE IS RISEN!!!

Good Evening My Porchie Sisters...

Patsy...it is so good to have you on The Porch again. You are like me and going through a lot of testing so far this year huh? We aren't alone...everyone I know is dealing with several things at once...it seems like. But at least we can encourage one another and be supportive.
Hope DH is doing better all the time.
And pray that you get over you chest cold.

Cherime...Well, I hope you got your book correction made. It is always frustrating when errors show up or segments left out or a lot of misspelled words.

How old is your GGD? I did live in babysitting for awhile when I was in High School and I got sick of it really quickly. I actually had to do all the cooking and cleaning too because the woman of the house had surgery. It only lasted about 3 weeks...but I was never so happy to be done with a job in my life. And as I remember my mother volunteered my services for free because it was her good friend. Thanks Mom!

Well, we had a Gorgous day today and more on the way...so, I am a happy woman.
I went with son and soon to be DIL for her baby appointment today. She is in her 7th month...baby's head is down ...just like it should be. Strong heart beat and starting to do summer saults under her ribcage.

We are having her baby shower (the first one) next Thursday Night at
Bible Study. I can't wait!!! Elijah will be here before we blink.

Well, off to start a new book tonight.
Chat with you all Later.

hugs and squishies,
peggy

Peggy, she is 20 and likely she will be doing all if her friend gets the job. By the time winter gets here she is likely to be burned out.
The book front apparently my old copy of Word messed it up a bit, spent all afternoon yesterday going through and reformatting. I sure hope it is ok this time. Phew.
Blessings all

Happy Easter to all of you!!!! Hope you are all having a wonderful day. It snowed here yesterday, but today it is melting, but we still have about 2 feet on the ground. Ham is in the oven, daughter and son coming over, we will eat around 3. Smeling pretty good, between the ham and pineapple upside down cake!!!!

Took the easy way out.Hubby's not eating carbs,Mama only wanted a sandwich and I wasn't about
to cook a bunch of food just for me. So, ya....easy way out. *giggle*

Sounds like Everyone had a Wonderful Easter...so did we.
Couldn't have been a more Wonderful Weekend!!!
Church Service was Amazing! Family Dinner at youngest Sons house
was such great fellowship. And Sadies Mom and I are in pure
baby mode...just so much fun expecting another wee one into
our Family. This will be Sadie's mom's first Grand Child...so,
she is just over The Moon. Sadie is her only child. So that is
all so very Special. I love that both our families...feel like
one big happy family when we are together. Such a huge blessing
from God!!! Well off to do my Mail Art List. More tomorrow girlies!

Went to an Easter dinner/bonfire yesterday. Had on a tee shirt and one of those flannel long sleeved shirts we like up here in Alaska. There were summer clouds, cumulus clouds, for those in the lower 48. Took my Grand Daughter with me. After church I went and picked her up in another town about 30 miles away. She is a nanny for a friend of hers with a special needs child.
We went and picked up a pickup load of fire wood and came home and off loaded that. I had to fix the wood stove. A fire brick, a vertical one had split, switch it with one on the flat ones in the bottom. The whole time had the front door propped open and the kitchen window open to air this place out. GDD was running around in a tank top and short shorts. We still have snow on the ground but it's melting. Then off to the bonfire. Had a good time with friends. Drove my GDD back to Eagle River and then came home. I had an encounter with the Lord at church. He really has a sense of humor and loves to mess with me. I got a playful little poke from him at home as well. God is love, peace and joy. I still fell the wonder of that encounter. He was grinning at me. Being grinned at by Him is a real experience. I think that because it was my Allan's birthday yesterday and the Lord knows I miss that man like crazy. So I got a little special attention yesterday. Thanks very much.

A bonfire...I'd love that. Back in the day (1988), having a bonfire at my high school was such a fun thing. To bad kids can't enjoy something like that today.

Cherime....I think that is awesome that you had a God Encounter of The Marvelous Kind!!!! Could you expound on it a bit more????? It is always so encouraging to hear how God manifests himself in our brothers and sisters lives.
Right now I feel a bit discouraged ...but I know My Beloved Father is just a breath away...but life has dealt our
Family so many lemons lately...I could sell them on the street corner. I feel like I'm in a season of drought..like in between Elijah's two prayers concerning rain. I'm in that 3 1/2 year period and Im feeling rather dry. So let me drink
From your over flowing cup sister....that fist small sip you gave us just made me even thirstier!

This Porch is even in need of some refreshment...or more people would be on here sharing and encouraging each
Other.

More later,
peggy

Hey Kim, Great pix.
Peggy, I am kind of embarrassed to put this out there as I know it is not the usual kind of thing that one expects of Jesus. But after all he is my husband these days. So here it goes and I have had him do odd things in my direction before like put a big hand on my head when I was riding the share ride van and there was no one behind me. I do tend to be fairly reserved. It is like he likes doing something different just to shake me up a bit. Background, I do not go for guys that are tall, blonds with blue or gray eyes. I tend to be wowed by the dark haired, light eye guys and anything 5'7 or so it great. The first book I wrote had a hero that was tall, blonde and gray eyed because many Slavic types are. So, I was not hallucinating on my ideal man. The second book I wrote had this particular character grow and learn quite a bit. So imagine my surprise when worshiping in church, I see this guy standing in front of me, leaning against a door jamb, arms crossed grinning at me. I blink my eyes and he is still there. And the eye patch I gave him in the first story is gone. He is perfect. So I go home and do all that other stuff, pick up wood, fix the wood stove, get the new printer working etc. And while I am in with the printer doing that stuff I am telling Jesus that I know he likes messing with me and I get the goose bumps and chills and that smile again in my head.
So ladies, I know that this is quite likely going be too much for some, sorry, but He did it and it was a nice poke on that particular day.

Kimberly....love the new babies...they are so adorable. How are you doing girl? Continually praying for you And the kidos.

Cherime....thanks for sharing. I love how God speaks so personally to us and also shows His sense of humor.
I have felt him kiss my cheek numerous times, tap my shoulder, drape his arm around my shoulder, give me dreams and visions and wakes me with the Words to beautiful poetry...just to name a few personal experiences.

Thanks for putting yourself out there Cherime...it helped me recall His Faithful love.

Hugs,
peg

Evening girls,
how are you? Good I hope. It has been a busy few days with getting back into work after break. I thought i better check in as I will be out of town until Saturday and didn't want the porch posse after my wings. We all know I have a tendency to leave my print on the front door. It has been beautiful here. The birds this morning were singing their hearts out. I thought well if they can sing with the ground still frozen and leaves still asleep, I can adjust my attitude to joy too. It was a wonderful day.

well have to pack a few things and then I am going to read.
love to you all
Tammy

Hello My Porchies...

Well, tonight we had a Wonderful Bible Study Baby Shower for Sadie and behind the scenes they made it a Grandma Shower for me too!!! Wow, I Was so shocked. What FUN that was!!! Sadie and I got a bunch of great gifts for the baby. LOL As soon as I fix my computer I Wlll post some pictures.

The other night I Was working on my computer and had a small Glitch so I decided to try out my One Stroke Recovery...thinking it would restore my computer back a week or so. Oh, not so... it totally wiped my computer clean...right back to the day I bought it 4 yrs ago and took it out of th box. My son is going to come reset everything for me...but there is nothing left to retreive thanks to me. I thought I
Was computer savy...but I guess I just know enough to be dangerous. Lol

Well, I. Guess....I'm off to bed. It has been a long day and evening even though it was fun.

Sweet dreams girls,

Good Evening My Porchies...

Well, thanks to my son...he got me back up and running on my computer. Nothing is the same however...which is so frustrating but I have
no one to blame but myself. It is just crazy how much damage I did in 12 minutes. LOL I have to laugh or I will cry. And I'm sorry but
I would rather laugh.

Teacher Tammy...I know you said you wouldn't be on this weekend because of going out of town or something...but have you ever tried Harney and Sons "Paris" Tea? I just bought a can of it at the Antique Mall (not antique however...a new brew). Anyway...I just love it. It has the greatest flavor. When I drink it...I can actually picture myself at a little bistro table in Paris....in the Spring. It tastes like
Spring to me....sweet, smooth, refreshing with just a kiss of after taste that makes you want to take another sip even before you sit the
tea cup back down. It is Ola la Lovely!

Janet...what have you been up to? My DIL loved the baby booties and baby hat that you knit for her. I wrapped it up and put in a gift bag
with your name on it. After she delighted over it...she said, "Oh, I can't wait to have time to be a Farmgirl!" Your gift was the only
home-made gift at the Shower...so, it got a lot of ooohs and awes by everyone. Thanks so much...that was so sweet of you. I will take
a Picture of Elijah when he has it on for you.

Bunny...I hope you are NOT working too hard at school or your job...just enough to make everyone happy...is enough! Hope your Fibro isn't flaring too badly in all this rain and storming.

Judy...how are you? What did the Chiropractor say? Have all your aches and pains gone away??? Has your mama started packing for her
move? Is that why you aren't on here because you are busy helping mama? Don't you love how I just decided to talk to you all even
though you aren't even on here. LOL That is a sure sign of a lonely lady! LOL Pretty soon my family will start thinking that I
have made you all up in my wee imagination.

Kimberly...I do hope you feel yourself wrapped in prayers girlfriend.

Cherime...did you get your book cover problem fixed? Hope so! Have you ever read any of the Jack Reacher Series of Books? I am reading a really strange one in the Series right now. It is So different from the other ones I have read...I'm not sure if I like it or not. I will probably be undecided until the end. At least I haven't thrown it across the room and given up on it...YET! LOL
So, I take it GDD moved out and you now have your home back to yourself. How are you doing with that? I would think you would just
get used to having her around and then bam...all that quietness again.It can either be very very good or very very bad.

Tonight I started working on my Thank You Notes for the Shower...I got half way done and then my hand started cramping. So, I will save the rest for tomorrow.

My husband has still been very sick. Hasn't moved out of his Recliner since Monday. I am very worried about this
continued Pneumonia. I am hoping when baby Elijah gets here and Grandpa holds him for the first time...that he will just fall in love
with him...and want to work harder at getting his health back. There are somethings he could do for himself that which would help his health...like start walking a little bit every day. He is losing weight really fast because he can't swallow food. He is averaging about -7 lbs per week...which is way too fast. Please keep him in your prayers.

As soon as I figure out my new picture storage place...I will post some shower pictures.

Off to read this book...praying it gets better...but if nothing else it is a diversion from the stresses of life.

Love, Hugs and Joy,
peggy

Peggy, I did get the book cover taken care of.
As to GDD, It ok when she is here and fine when she is not. I need a certain amount of quiet to write and that girl loves to talk.
Here is what I did with the book cover. Have a great day.
