WOW! Quiet here all of a sudden.
Well, I see we lost Annette Fonacello(sp)too! How sad.If I had Mickey-Mouse ears, I'd be wearing them in tribute!
I see we have a Birthday on our Porch this Friday....Miss Jan Doran...for those who need a reminder! *giggle*
Well, off to move more stuff! I think Mama should buy a mobile home....so we can just hook the thing up and
pull it to a new location,every time she wants new scenery! hahaha 'Nuff of this boxing and moving and unpacking already!!!
*pantpantpant*
Toodle-eee-ooo!

Judy, that is a good one about the mobile home. Let's hope and pray that this will be the last time you have to move her. That is alot of work, especially when doing it every few months!!!
My son called me this morning and asked me to work today, so that was my day.
Still cold here, in the 30s for the highs with rain, sleet, snow, and more snow on the way. The snow on the ground is going down, but our ground is still frozen. It has been many years since we had such cold weather this time of the year. It will come eventually, but I am usually working in the yard by now. We do need to see some sun.
It is quiet on the porch today. Everyone must be busy spring cleaning?
Have a great evening,

Talking about mobile homes. When I retired last October, at the going away party it was mentioned that I bought a mobile home. One of the managers actually said, "You gonna be okay driving that?"

Hi Girlies...

Well, I see one of my posts didn't make it on here again. It was either me being too tired or the 'puter ate it again. LOL

Judy...I agree with you on both recent deaths.
I had a lot of respect for Margaret Thatcher. She was a strong woman with lots of Moxie! (I will have to rent the movie about her life.) Also, I am with you and Patsy...I'am singing the Mickey Mouse Song with my hand over my heart. We will all miss Annette.
It is funny how many of the symptoms of MS are the same as Fibro.

Oh that is so funny about your Mama and getting her a Mobile Home for every time she wants to move. That way you could just park her in your backyard! Lol

Patsy..loved your idea about painting new scenes on her windows. I can tell that you and Judy are sisters....giggle!

Janet...glad Judy mentioned your birthday before Friday. LOL

Terri...that must have been the "Smart" Manager huh???? LOL

Well, today I went bumming around with my son. He was looking for a Futon for a guest bed for their guest room. We found a couple well made ones...but not sure if he bought one later in the day or not.
He also took me to lunch. Which was nice. My DIL from Seattle is coming down for Sadies 2nd Shower this Saturday....and they need someplace for her to sleep. Sadie is in the Nesting Mode...so, she doesn't want Faith to have to sleep on the Air Mattress. LOL

My Son has an interview with a good company tomorrow...making really good $$ which would be helpful with a baby coming next month. Please pray for him for me. We would like Sadie to be able to NOT go back to work after the baby is born.

Ok...my eyes are watering and I am tired.

Love and Hugs,
peggy

Hope all is well with the rest of you "ole biddy " hens. I need some prayers for a couple of family members ...my aunt has a mass on her pancreas. The sad thing is her only child was grew up in my grandparents home with my aunt and never knew her father. Both of my grandparents passed away...gramp in 2011 and gram in 2014. My Grampi

Darn android and auto correct. Anyway gramp was her father figure and gram was her second mom. My cousin is married and has a daughter and step son. S. So please keep them all in prayer. My uncle had a hip replacement. During therapy, a blood clot was discovered in his leg. Please pray for him as well.

Thank you my fellow chix.

WELCOME Katrina...yes, pull up a chair, rocker, swing or step on The Porch and share in the gab and blab with the rest of us.
This is a Fun place to be...that is for sure...and you will meet a lot of Great Women just like yourself.

So, tell us a thing or two about yourself...so we can get to know you! We know that you Scrapbook...that is a start!

Lorena...I wondered how your Gram died next year. LOL Oh, my I needed that little chuckle this morning. That is the
best way to start off a day! And since it took you 4 tries on your Android to spit it all out...I think your quote is very
applicable: "Patience is worth a bushel of brains." *rolling on the floor - holding my side, tears rolling down my cheeks*

You might win the Porch Award along with Judy...for being our Comic Relief. LOL

OK girlies...I will check back on here later. Do something fun today!!! And Be A Blessings To Someone Else!

Love and Squishies,
Peggy

Sometimes I just make myself laugh. My gramp had cancer. My gram had a bad heart and died from internal bleeding due to blood thinners. They were both in their. 80's. Gram didn't do well after gramp died. Mom spent about 3 most in Michigan helping my aunt care for her
Gramp was grams soul mate even though gramp became a grumpy old man (which is putting in extremely mildly .). But she was his toots.

hi ladies,
just stopping for a quick fly in. We have over 3 inches of rain, hail, sleet, freezing rain, and snow all in the past two days. I awoke yesterday to water in my basement and mopped and then came home to do it again. Thankfully we know how to fix it when spring decides to stick around. It is cold here and the moods reflect it.

Hope all it well with yall will be back when I am not worried about electricity staying on.
love to you all
tammy

Hey Patsy and Peggy, Lorena's kind of patience is very rare. That's the kind of thing that has the offending object bouncing off something around here.
My GDD is such a sweetie. It is a real balancing act trying to teach her to have healthy boundaries when all she wants to do is give, of herself, her time, her resources. She loves her little charge to pieces and would do anything for his mom. I understand how mom wants to keep Ashley as the sitter for her little boy. The child has behavioral problems and Ashley is a patient as can be with him. But I want to see her have something to fall back on in later years. I can see mom's side of it and it is a real hard place to be. Ashley has a heart the size of Alaska and I do not want to see her hurt. Sigh!!!!!
Ah well. On another note. Down to 0 this morning. But the sun is up and not a cloud in the sky this am. It is to warm up to 20 or 25 and so long as its sunny, its ok with me.
We are all having plant withdrawals up here. My niece and I are already thinking about planting stuff. Probably about time to try a reinstall of SPRING! Maybe this time it will make it.

Ok chickie poos...believe it or not my patience can be very short lived. I was ready to chuck this Droid as far in the woods as I could when I was typing that message. My mom was challenged my my bullheadedness often to frustration but come to find out, as I have growing up, I have the tenacity that comes from her father, of whom I was writing about in the first place. So I think I have more tenacity then patience. But my dad's father was as bullheaded and tenacious as mom's dad. Add this into the mix..I am also living, breathing proof that sarcasm is genetic as I get that from both grandfather's too.

Katrina,Hi there! Welcome!Happy to have you join us in our All-Gal-Gab! *hands you a steaming cuppa*
TLTammy,we had severe T-storms yesterday with quarter inch hail and 60MPH wind gusts. Talk about scary! And I was "Home Alone" through most of it! *shivers* Even the cat ran under the bed. The thunder was non-stop. Lightening hit our middle school here in town. They got the kids out and over to the H.S.,then they sent them home early.They had 5 fire depts. working on it and got it out without too much damage. Scared those poor kids pretty bad though! We're expecting more rain tonight and tomorrow!
Didn't move anything for Mama yesterday. Today I moved a few things for her and her freezer stuff.The movers are coming Tuesday. Yeaaaaa! It will be over then!*jumping up&down* LOL
I got her shelves in the basement full,with craft stuff and kitchen stuff she doesn't use much.Got her clothes and dishes moved,the food in her cabinets moved.....*takes BIG breath*...and all with my Beetle-Baby!Boy his poor 'lil tongue is hanging out and his bumpers are dragging! hahaha...MINE too! LOL (there's a picture for ya Peg)~~whew~~
Cherime,I'll bet it's hard to wait for Spring when your Winters are so looooong!Hard to believe it's still 0 there! Nice picture of the young-uns! Who baked the cute cake? I do believe someone has been working those suckers over already! hahaha
Bunny,so glad you got your teas.I hope they weren't beat up too badly! I hope you like them both. I love trying new teas...then sharing them with my Porch-Buds!
Well, I'm whooped girls! It's off to beddy-bye for this chicky-babe!
Nite!

Sending some pretties from my neck of the woods! It's not only the Desert in Bloom...The Rain Forest is doing OK too. LOL

Darlen Darlene...so nice to see you on The Porch Girlie!!! I was wondering if you would come visit. Thanks for that funny E-Card
today. I am happy my DH deals with the taxes...I don't have to sweat that at all. I am NOT A Numbers girl! I have done Light
Book-keeping for one of my businesses but had an Account to handle the big stuff. Thank The Lord that there are people who enjoy
that stuff! LOL

Judy...I heard there was all kinds of weird weather across the country yesterday. I think wind bothers me the most because here you
always have to worry about trees coming down from the soggy ground we have from all the rain.

I got my Tea today. Haven't tried it yet but you got some great choices. I have never tried Chili tea before...can't wait to taste
that one. And you know me, Tea and Chocolate just were meant to go together. Yumo! I thought the card was so adorable and all
the tucks were awesome...ya done good girl!!! Nice little "Pick Me Up" in the ol' Mail box makes my day. My Mail box has needed
some farmgirl love this week...because last week was either nothing in the box or just bills...and that's no fun!

Hi Bunny...glad you hopped on for a quick moment. Hope your fibro is doing ok and you aren't working too hard. Is your mom still planning on moving?

Cherime...cute picture of your GD and her little bud! I take it that she made the cake for him? How Sweet. Sorry, you are still
getting such cold weather. Brrrr!!!

Terri...that is a beautiful bloom. Do you know what the plant is? I know that it is not a primrose. But it sure is beautiful.

I had Bible Study tonight. It went really well. Just one more week and then we are done with our study on James. I hate to have
it come to an end...as it is so good. I will either have to make up 4 weeks of some kind of Study for us for the Month of May
or just call Summer Break a Month Early. We usually go until the first of June and then just turn into a Crafting Group through
the summer...because a lot of us no longer have children at home...so we want to keep meeting for the Fellowship.

I am tired and have to get up early in the morning...so, good night and sweet dreams My Porchies.

Hugs and Snugs,
Peggy

Terri and Peggy, love the flowers. Terri I recall how the desert can bloom when there is just a tiny amount of rain.
I am not sure who made the cake. But Ashley's little buddy is the little guy she is babysitting for.
Judy, actually if I can afford heating fuel I don't really care about the snow and cold all that much.
Bunny hope all is well there.
The picture is of one of the mountains, Mt. Drum out where I used to live.

Good morning, Porchies...I've been off in a fog for awhile; but, working my way back to you babes. lol.
Judy, you could write a book "Moving Mamma". It sounds tiring, but aren't you glad you can do it. I received your teas, card, and tucks! They are both new teas for me. Will try them on Tuesday when SIL comes to visit. She wants help cutting 2" quilt pieces. I loved the safety pin pin. How pretty! It goes right on my denim jacket to dress it up! Loved those little tea party tucks too! Never can get enough of Maxine! Wow, how many years have we been reading her wit? Thank you!
Terri and Peggy, Those flower pics sure made my day. I'm looking out the window at mud, rain and lots of birds. We have a lot of wild turkeys. One travels alone. I have named her One. So, I look out the window and can cay "There's One".
Cherime, enjoyed seeing the pic of GDD. She does look like a sweetie and her small charge looks very at home with her. Thanks for sharing. I do love putting faces to names. Talk to you all soon..I hope.
