Evening ladies! I just went out with the furkids and it's snowing!!!! I always get excited about the first real snow, there's something still magical about it even at my age LOL.

Before I forgot I am working on the tea swap packages so please be patient. I worked on them over the weekend but with not feeling totally great and the mandatory overtime at work is not helping me get them done. I will have them out before the end of the month.

Bunny - sorry your oldest son didn't pass the physical but he knows what he needs to work on for the next round. As for your youngest son, many of us joined the military for the same reason. It's a plus on any resume and can get a person a job easier in the future. The job opportunities are amazing. Having been in the Navy, having been a Navy wife, being an Army mom, and having worked with the Army I totally know how difficult it is. Just think of all the creative things you can do though sending care packages LOL

PeggyAnn - girlie you seriously need to get better! I have some leftover chicken noodle soup in the frig. I'm still fighting whatever bug I've been fighting for the past 2 weeks. I'm tired of being tired. If it's not too late I'd love to sign up for the drawing! Wow, that's an impressive amount of posting. Also a belated Happy Birthday. I really need to get the birthday list and put it on my calendar to remind me of these things.

Heather - Hope you have a Happy Birthday! Have you ever been up to Frankenmuth in Michigan? It's a Christmas town open all year. Pretty cool but NEVER go this time of year as it's overrun. I bought a ton of ornaments the last time we went to Bronner's.

I'm off to do a bit of reading and drink a cup of tea.

I would love to sign up too Peggy! How long have you been on the forum? It's been almost a year for me.

No, I haven't been to Frankenmuth, but I would love to some day. I can't even imagine what it would be like this time of year! I'm thinking a summer trip would be best.

I love making gifts. Sometimes I buy some too, but I always try to find something to make. I don't like when people buy me cheap thoughtless gifts (especially my immediate family). I'd rather they just make me something.

I have to get back to work. I'll be praying for momma and your husband Peggy.

Can I join in?

I'm kind of on again/off again on the forum, but with the new job I have more time to be here.

We just moved from a very rural farming area of Ohio back home to Cherryville, NC where we're in the middle of the city. It's great being close to my parents and back with family and friends, but I miss the snow in Ohio. I loved the snow.

So good to be back home!!

Welcome to the porch Stephanie! I just made a cup of tea and it's been bugging me that I forgot to tell you all my Thanksgiving plans so I had to come back :) We celebrate Thanksgiving the old fashioned way - eating too much! My mother-in-law has Thanksgiving at her house and my father-in-laws side of the family all comes (he has 2 unmarried brothers, one sister that is married but doesn't have any kids so they don't have anything to do). We have the traditional meal - turkey and ham, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, stuffing, rolls, cranberry salad (my favorite part!), pumpkin pie, along with other desserts and appetizers. We get together for lunch then after evening milking my husband and I usually walk over and graze again! Maybe the next day too. This year my sister-in-law is dragging her husband shopping on Friday morning so her 2 kids are spending the night at Gma's. We'll probably go over and see them again.

Back to work I go....

We got Snow! It started last night and snowed off and on, right now at 9am as I write this I am looking out my Craft/Sewing Room window and it is snowing again. It is so pretty, and the snow makes it so peaceful and quiet. Can not see Pikes Peak Mountain as it is covered in fog but I know it is getting a lot more snow than we are. It will be a very cold day and night, it is 25 degrees right now and that is our high:-)
How are you feeling this morning Peggy, I do hope better. Wish I were there to make you some homemade chicken soup as well.
Have a beautiful day Porchies, stay warm and Be Happy.
Hugs,
Debbie

I sure wish it would snow as the temperature usually comes up when it snows. At least this am it is zero instead of -10. I need snow so I can pack it around the base of the house to keep the cold air out. In the meantime I'll beg a bit of white chocolate fudge with apricot pieces in it for all us porchies. She makes it every year at about this time and I am first in line with a hand out.
Blessings all.

Good morning everyone.

Judy, sorry Mpomma isn't feeling up to snuff. I'll keep her in my prayers...Peggy, same for your hubby.

Both my sons are coming to Thanksgiving with their dad and possibly a friend. She doesn't have any family so I told them she was welcome. Thanksgiving here is a bacon wrapped turkey, stovetop stuffing, mash potatoes made with tons of butter and sour cream, cranberry jelly in a can and apple pie. Notice no veggies? They never eat them. I gave up. They never liked my homemade stuffing and begged for the box of stovetop garbage. I'm just thankful they are coming. I have not seen my youngest for three years. They all have to work on Wednesday so they leave California at 1am and I have dinner ready when they get here. It's about a 12 hour drive.

Mom is doing great in California. Her reverse mortgage came through thanks to our local congressman having a word with FHA.

I keep sewing and doing homework. Only a few more weeks left of this quarter. Then I get a 3 week break for sewing like crazy before the magazine comes out.

I signed up for a kitting class to learn how to make mittens. I never get out of the house unless I need food. I decided I need some socialization. They also have a free knit day on Wednesday. I'll probably go to that every once in a while. I have 4 classes next quarter so not sure how much extra time I'll have. But I have got to get out of this house sometimes.

Love hearing about the first snow for some of you. I miss living in the forest and the first snow.
Sorry about the colds though. Hang in there. Teacher Tammy I bet a bout of colds for your butterflies would slow them down a bit.

Peggy, I would love to be in your drawing. Prairie Tammy looking forward to our tea this month.


Later all.

Cherime, scary stuff with DD! Glad you found her. Sounds like a major battle ahead to get her a workable pump.
Awesome that you sold two books already.

Bunny, it was funny but God guided me right to her. I drove in and there she was. It was a driveway I usually do not use going into that parking lot as there are three. It was very scary. Thanks on the books.
On the note of books, I notice that Smashwords now has added Dropbox to its site so one no longer has to go through a bunch of steps downloading stuff from there. I discovered this while finally finishing up a project for a sick friend. Grace was diagnosed with liver cancer. She went for the usual treatments but something went horribly wrong. She is no longer receiving treatment. But over her lifetime, she had written many poems, short stories and reflections. Finally I was able to get everything into a proper form in order to publish them on Smashwords for her. Grace is not computer literate. She is a believer and the cover of the book I did up from a photo she took on a trip to Israel. She was crying yesterday when I finally managed to get the book to upload onto Smashwords. She is staying with one daughter and it was a big family thing when they were all in the kitchen looking at the book online. It was one of the most difficult books I have ever had to work with only because of it being poetry and for some reason, the computer fought us every inch.
So porchies this is the link if anyone is interested.

Hello My Porchies...good to see so many on the Porch today! Yahoo...just how I like it.

Welcome to The Porch Stephanie...so glad to
have you! Pull up a rocker, grab a mug of tea or coffee and sit a spell and get to know us and let us get to know you. Once you have been on here a page or two then you become an official Porchie and Not a Newbie!

Heather...thanks for coming back and sharing your Thanksgiving plans.
I love to hear what everyone is doing. It has all become so different and enteresting in everyones lives...how we each celebrate this Traditional Harvest Dinner. Everyone's ways are PERFECT...for each Farmgirl...because that is their family tradition. There is no right or wrong way to do it anymore.

Debbie...Oh, you got some pretty snow!!!
I do always love to
watch that very first snowfall. And I always have to go stand out in it for a
few minutes too.
Enjoy!!

Cherime... I have never heard of that White Fudge/with apricots but it sounds like a good combination.
They is great that you got your friends poetry book done for her. That I am sure meant a lot to her.
You are such a good friend.

Bunny...so glad to see you on The Porch...have you been sewing like a fiend?? I am happy that your Family is coming for Thanksgiving. That is awesome!!! Did your mom go to her boyfriends in California? Or will she be there too?
Oops...I just re-read your comments and you even said she was in Cali. Glad the reverse morgage went through for her.
And good for you for signing up for a knitting class. I have never made mittens before. Let me know how it goes for you.

I am still sick but better...I decided NOT to go to Bible Study tonight because I don't want to give anyone what I have...especially a week before Thanksgiving. So, one of the other gals will conduct the Study. She won't be able to bring all the extra teaching that I do...but they will still get the basics.
It was a Birthday Night for two of the gals tonight too. One just turned 50 and one 70. So, they were Milestone birthdays and I hated to miss...but sent them both something via my DIL.
I did get out for awhile with hubby. Just a couple hours of riding around in the Sunshine was a mood elevator for me after being stuck in the house for the last 7 days. He was just doing Postings on Foreclosures today...very simple, and no dealing with mad people. So, I just went with him for a couple hrs and came back home.

Well, guess I better go think of something good for dinner. Simple but good...I still don't feel like cooking much or eating much either.

Have a Nice Evening
My Sweet Friends,
Peggy

Porchies, it is still snowing! Could not go to Book Club this morning and lunch with my girlfriend, so we will try tomorrow. Although the weather man says it will be like this through tomorrow afternoon. But, that is fine with me I absolutely love being snowed in and it is so very beautiful.
Peggy I am glad you are feeling a bit better and you were able to get out a bit, that always helps.
Well, back to work, trying to get some Christmas Aprons, Linens and other treasures in my Etsy and Ebay Shop, I am so far behind. Every morning at 5:30 am I iron more Christmas Linens and still am not finished. Guess that means I have too much, so that is why I am trying to sell some through my shops.
Have a beautiful, warm weekend Gals and Please Be Happy.
Debbie

Peggy, glad you are feeling better. That white fudge is sooooo amazing.
Temp came up to around 30 again and its back to sliding around. Got to go out and put grit everywhere now.
But I did get a full 4 star review on my book Highland Light. Yipee. Snoopy dance for sure.
Blessings all.

Thanks for the warm welcome girls!

I just sat down with my coffee and am taking a break at work. Let me share a bit about myself - I'm 30, will be 31 on the 1st of December. Most of my life I've lived in the Carolinas, but we spent the last year in Ohio. Hubby and I have been together for 6 years and married for 8 months, we are childfree but have 7 cats, Viscount Ashley of Leftfield, Pawkie Petunia, Tiny Tim, Leo the Lionheart, Fruit Snack, Cloud, and Barret, and 1 grumpy pony, Starbucks andrears.

When we lived in Ohio we had a small farm with the pony in the back then we moved to a little house and barn in the middle of a huge farm. Now that we're back in NC the pony is boarded we live in a small city. I miss my farm and I dearly miss the snow. The brutal cold and wind we dealt with being close to Lake Erie isn't missed, but I love snow. I'm quite thankful to be back at home and near my parents (kathyc that posts here) and friends, but there are parts of Ohio I'm missing.

Along with the move my hubby and I both changed jobs and we're making a lot less, so I'm living on a shoe string budget. The bright side is I've been working 70 - 80 hour weeks for 3 years and with my new job I work 35 hours, have 2 girls in the office I love, and it's a much happier place to be. Hubby has a crappy job in an inbound call center doing sales for AT&T, but we're still looking and praying for something better.

We're renovating our house here in NC and hope to have it done next year. It's a 1908 Sears Craftsman house that needs a lot of love.

I'm also a semi professional photographer with a small weekend business that my mother is also involved in shooting weddings, families, etc...

So good to be back home!!

Hi Girlies!
Welcome, Welcome Miss Steph! So good to have another (OHIO) Porchie on here! *giggle* Where was your little town in Ohio? Curious! As you can see, I'm from NE Ohio, Stark Co. I love Ohio. I thoroughly enjoy the 4 seasons! My sister(she's on here sometimes too)moved to Franklin N.C. about 12 years ago, after living in Ohio most of her life. She seems to like it. It's too damp and humid for me. But I like to visit in the Spring or Fall.
Well, Mama had her procedure today. They removed 1 polyp and told her that she has a few deep inside and gave her some suppositories to see if they will go away. What else can they do, ya know? There is a limit even to modern medicine. The worst part was waiting for 2 hours just to get in to have it done. When we complained to them one of the nurses said, "You shouldn't come in on a Friday, it's always busy." Well, we didn't schedule it...they did. duh And he was booked thru December. so...ya...double duh...*giggle*
So Mama was starving when we got out of there but was unstable so I took her home and went back out and got some spaghetti for us with garlic bread. She didn't do too badly with that. After I left she was heading to bed. Poor thing...wore out.
Well, I'm having some chocolate-mint tea that Republic Tea sent me as a freebie with their catalogue(love those)teehee Pretty good tea too. Then I' heading to bed too I think. Stress-tired!
Night Porch-Buds!
Keep warm!
Love Yuns!

Judy -

I lived in Akron in Summit County and Wooster in Wayne county. Hubby worked for a beer distributor and had Stark, Summit, Wayne, and Portage counties in his territory. I rented from the Smuckers in Wooster. They were great people.

We're having Thanksgiving today with my SIL and her family and will spend tomorrow on their boat. They live in SC and have 4 kids. It's so much fun to be here!

So good to be back home!!

Happy Sonday girls,
It is cold here and we had our first snow this week. Thank goodness I only have school two days this week and then off the rest of the week. This year has already been long but I know there is reason for this hard season in the classroom and God has been giving me a few breathable moments.

I have been crocheting at least one row each night for stress release. I am working on a blanket. So far it is coming along and looks pretty nice. I am really enjoying this project.

Miss Peggy you may put me down for the drawing if it is still going.

Steffic welcome to the porch. Love it when we have more join us. We always have room for more.
Bunny so glad to see you here. Do you get much of a break for Thanksgiving?
Judy praying for your sweet mama. So sorry for all she is going through.
well time for a cup of tea,
Love to you all
Tammy

Evening ladies! It's been a busy weekend. My birthday was Thursday so I took Friday off work (company comps us one work day the week of our birthday). Friday night we went to a the local dinner theater and watched Southern Hospitality. They did really well especially for such a small group. Saturday we investigated one of the local towns, Valley City. It has some awesome antique shops and thrift stores! I picked up this sweet tea pot for $5 and this set of nutcracker salt & pepper shakers for $3 for the set.





I dressed warmly for our outing, woke up to 9' with -9' windchill although the sun was blindingly bright. Mock turtleneck, hooded sweater, and flannel lined jeans along with my down coat helped me stay warm. Thankfully the wind didn't pick up until after we'd eaten supper and were driving home. Today the temp was over 40' and sunny. Managed to get the dogs out for a wander before dark. Tried to vacuum and neither vacuum wants to work...ugg. M* woke up in a bad mood so I decided to sweeten him up a bit and made him some orangecicle cookies with orangecicle frosting. It worked LOL.

Bunny - once you get the mittens class done try the sock class. They're highly addictive LOL

PeggyAnn - how are you feeling? Any improvement?

Stephanie - welcome to the Porch!

Hi My Porchies...

Didn't make it to Church last night or today. Woke up (after my first night of no sinus/cold medication) after a pretty decent nights
sleep...but I felt like a mac-truck had hit me. My eyes were swollen, my sinus open and going full throttle. I made some hot tea, my
breakfast smoothie, took the dog out, and came back and went back to bed. This afternoon...I feel very much better. DH and I attempted 2 Serves and then went to BnN for awhile. Got a couple different personal studies done, The Harbinger and Wonderstruck. They are both totally
opposite end of the Spiritual Spectrum but I think God is using one to balance the other...in my heart and soul. He knows what our hearts can handle or not handle. That is one of my favorite Characteristics of God...He is always so gentle with me. Even if he has been teaching me a tough lesson He does it with gentle loving-kindness. He knows that I am a very tender-hearted peson. That is what I so love about Him...He is such a personal God.

Prairie Gypsy Tammy...Happy Belated Birthday!!! Sounds like you had a nice one! It is nice that your company allows you one Birthday day off. Not many companies do that anymore. I love the Nutcracker salt and pepper shakers. ~ Yum, the orangecicle cookies sound yummy....like
they could make the Whole World Happy!!! LOL

Connie...you are going to be a Cooken Up A Storm. You are smart to pace yourself out with your MS. Happy Thanksgiving to You, Holly and Family!!!

Teacher Tammy...signing you up for the 4,000 Post Draw. So, happy to hear that you only have 2 days of work this week. You deserve a
break from those sweet little/ornery little butterflies. Hope it is really relaxing and soul refreshing for you. It is like the little
shot in the arm to get you through until Christmas Break. LOL You will have to take a picture of your blanket and show us what you are
doing to relax.

Stephanie...thanks for sharing a little about yourself. Helps us get to know you a little better right off the bat. I could never come over
to your house to visit...because I am allergic to your furry babies. But I am happy for you that they are your children. Hope your early Thanksgiving Dinner was great! And enjoy your day on the Boat.

Judy...Hello girlie. Are you cooking the Thanksgiving Dinner? ~ I hope the suppositories work for those other deeper polyps that Mama has.
She must just be so fed-up with all this medical junk. Poor little darlen'. ~ Isn't that Chocolate Tea good? I love it. Today I had some
Cherry Tea ...which I love the taste of but it really tries me out. I was thinking Chocolate Cherry would be awfully good. I've never
had that combination in tea before but I know I would like it.

Alicia...it has been awhile since you were on The Porch. Sounds like you have been very busy. I went and checked out your blog.
Don't be a stranger girl...we miss you!

Well, sweet friends...I'm going to get off here and watch Antiques Road Show and eat some dinner.

Have a good rest of the weekend.

More tomorrow.

Hugs,
Peggy
