Where is everybody- guess we gotta send out a BIG posse!!! It's been cold here with some snow, sleet and then freezing rain - ugh. I'd rather have a good old fashioned snowstorm than the ice. Trying to get ready for Christmas, but it is one of those years where we are struggling to find a time the family can get together. It is always hard when the holiday is in the middle of the week. So many have to travel to get there and don't have either the day before or the day after off from work. Oh well, we'll do what we can and make the best of it whatever happens.

Have also had the "crud' for weeks now - just won't go away. Seems like so many get sick this time of year.

Anyway - left some mint hot chocolate and cookies on the porch if anybody wants some!

Hugs,
Luanne

Lurking. Actually I sold six of the baby blankets so have to make more. Since the kids are staying in my sewing room. I don't get moving until around 10 am. The newest one I am working on is an Elmo blanket. Luckily I had already zig zagged up three other tops. But I have to get on it as the next bazaar is two days. I do not have enough stuff right now. Gotta get on it. The kids are going to get up a lot earlier next week. I do these in fleece with a cotton backing. Ribbon goes over the zig zagged seams. Then I bind them with blanket binding. The blocks are 12 x 12 inches. I did an applique of Elmo in the center block. Only 5 more to go when this one is done.

Well, Well Luanne...I think you are right about the Posse. A Huge Round-up is in order.
Glad to see you on the Porch. Sorry to hear that you have that awful crud. It is nasty
stuff alright. Glad to be over it myself.
Hope you get the Christmas plans all worked out. My youngest son said (after the baby was
born last May) OK...you all have to come to our house for Christmas because we are no
longer playing Musical Houses. LOL

Cherime...your baby blankets are beautiful. I can see why they sold and you are busy-busy-busy!!

I have been making out Christmas Cards the last couple of days...and not quite done yet...but my
hands started cramping and I had to take a break. Hope to finish them up tomorrow. I enjoy doing them.
But they are time consuming. I try to make them each like a little gift all by themselves.

Haven't been doing much else....except reading, drinking tea and coffee, and eating chocolate. My 3 favorite
things to do. SO True!!!

Have a good Evening Girls,
Peggy

Busy busy busy is right! My daughter had her Holiday ice show at the rink this weekend, and along with her regular team practice, two snow days for the kids, doctor appointments, and having to get ready for a trip to Cape Cod for a Synchronized Skating competition, I'm beat. We leave tomorrow morning and my to do list is huge. First thing on the list is to write her teachers for homework since she wasn't there so far to ask this week, and schedule after school tutoring sessions for my son. I need more time! But then who doesn't?

My neighborhood is also fighting the school behind our house that is planning on fencing off the school, which puts it in our backyards. Well, the easement behind our house. The principal is out of control and isn't backing down, so we're not giving up until it's actually up. It's taking an incredible amount of emotional energy that I just don't have to give right now. So, on today's agenda is to write even more letters. Sigh.

Hope ya'll have a good day! The kids have a two hour delay, so I'm still lounging around in bed. Slacker! Heh heh...

Ok, so the posse had to drag my butt back in here. I'm here!

Thanksgiving was great with my kids. We had lots of food and good movies to watch. We all went to Portland for a day. They enjoyed that. Went to Saturday market and a great little pub restaurant for lunch.
They left that Sunday about 2am. That is the hardest part for me. It took a few days to feel better. I miss them so much. My youngest is going into the Marines January 6. I'm not too happy about it. I don't think he realizes what he is in for. I'll see him for his graduation in April.
My mom is still in California. She plans on staying the whole winter. It is nice to have the house to myself. Although I will be alone for Christmas.

I got the proofs for my two magazine articles. They look wonderful plus I found out I get paid! That was a wonderful surprise.
I haven't had any more sales on my Etsy store. But I keep sewing. No giving up now.

That's about it. The weather is cold, I got food poisoning and was down for a few days. Other than that, I'm doing good.

Cherime, good luck with your sales. The blanket is very cute.

Until later....

Hi ladies,
just stopping in before tea and reading and then bed. It is still so cold here. I just am exhausted by the time I get home. I am looking forward to vacation. The butterflies are crazy...need I say more. I told them Santa is leaving them coal if I talk to him...hahahah

I am trying to get Christmas finished up so I can just be done. So far not much luck buying locally. So been doing a lot of shopping on line and have decided I like that. No crowds.

Peggy did you put me down for june or july for tea swap? I just was wondering. Need a summer month with school.

well not much happening here. I am ready for bed.
love to you all
Tammy

Every time I come to the porch I spend so much time reading about everyone else that I don't have time to post. Please forgive me - I'm not trying to be rude - but I want to post about the wonderful weekends I've had. The Saturday after Thanksgiving was my birthday and my family came down from Michigan. We went to Christmas in the village (basically just a holiday open house kind of thing). We walked through all the shops. Here's my favorite. It's an old barn turned into a shop:

There's a cupcake shop that was moving and we were there on the last day they were open. They just so happen to have a giant mint chocolate cupcake that my husband and I split. They also had a rootbeer one that my sister got. It was surprisingly very good! On our way to the airport café for lunch I made my husband pull over for a picture. I've always loved a Massey Ferguson 1155 tractor. I've told my husband many times that I'm going to have one someday. Guess what was beside the road for sale.....

Unfortunately we don't have the extra $9,500 right now so the picture will have to work. Since my family was down we waited until Sunday evening to celebrate with my in-laws. My husband decorates my cake and this year it was so cute I had to share:

Didn't he do a great job?

Then this past weekend we went and got our Christmas tree. It was great because this year there was snow!!!

I posted more pictures on the holiday board if you want to see them.
Unfortunately I need to get back to gift making. I'm way behind because I caught the cold/sinus infection bug last Monday. Luckily I'm feeling much better now. In case I don't get to post again before hand - I hope all you porchies have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed new year!!

Thanx Peggy...just emailed you!

Cherime.....what a great looking fellow!

It's finally in the 40's in North Texas! I was not so happy with the coooold! But it's raining....guess I should be happy 'cause it's not turning to ice! The metroplex was literally shutdown for three/four days due to the last icy weather front and they say we will be in the 70's next week and back to the freezing temps Christmas week! HUH?????????

Happy Friday the 13th!1 It is a lucky day for me...hope the rest of you are blessed in all ways!

My best to all,
Mel

Howdy porchies,
today was finally bearable outside. It was 30 which is a heatwave after this past two weeks. It felt wonderful. Went to see my sons wrestle today. One got first. The other fourth. the one who got fourth is having some back issues so we are taking him to the dr on Monday to see if we can get to the bottom of it. Tomorrow is my grandson's first Christmas program. So this grandma is driving three hours to see him and then back home. But I wouldn't miss it for the world. He is so darn cute.

only one more week of school with my onery butterflies. We have party on Friday and then two whole weeks of bliss...
Tuesday my bible study group is having a party as we finish up our study before we take a break. I am looking forward to that.
well I am off to have some tea and crochet. My blanket is starting to look a like a blanket.
Peggy thank you for putting me down for July for tea swap.

love to you all
Tammy

I actually took time today to clean up some paper work (filing) and as I sat at my writing desk,,, I noticed the Robins doing what they do best,,, hopping and a bobbin around the grass looking for worms/bugs... then the ScubJays flew in... I did manage to get my filing done, but it took me longer then it should have... but I don't mind, it was fun being entertained by the birds...
Does that make me a 'bird brain'? lol! snork, giggle!

and as you can see... I wasn't alone... lol!

Hi My Porchies...had a good day spent with youngest son and family.
My son and I first took the baby with us and let mommy sleep in...she has been
having kidney problems and it has been keeping her from getting enough rest.
My son, baby and Grandmama went to Starbucks and had coffee, fed the baby
breakfast and just sat and visited for awhile. Then we went to Costco...as my
son wanted to see if they carried the Organic Hams again this year and they
didn't but I got my toilet paper and paper towels there and then we left. Mommy
called and so we went and picked her up. Dropped my tissues off at my Apartment
then went to Portland. They took me to lunch at a new burger place...that makes
the best burgers. I had a blue-cheese Burger and they cook their french fries in
truffle oil. Wow...they were sooooooooooooo good. Non-greasy and so flavorful.

Then we went for Vegan Ice-cream. And by then it was almost 5 and getting dark...
so they brought me home and came in for about 30 minutes to change the baby etc.
My grandson is just so cute and adorable. His grandpapa came home right before
they left so he got to see them for a few minutes too.

My husband fell outside this morning taking the dog out. He slipped in mud and
his feet went out from underneath him. Some guy in the Apartments saw him fall
so, he came and helped him up. I was worried about him being hurt but he said
that this time it was only his pride that was hurt. He is a little sore tonight
and will probably hurt more tomorrow. It seems the second and third days are when
the pain usually sets in.

I hope we both feel up to Church tomorrow. We told the kids we would try to meet
them at the 11:00 service.

Grace...it looks like the cat was having a good time watching the birds too. He or she looks
pretty intent. LOL

Teacher Tammy...enjoy your grandsons performance! Hope your one son's back is OK. And hey, 1 st and
4th Place is great!!! Glad that Christmas break is getting closer for you!!! Counting Down the Days
I'm sure.

Heather...I got your email and have you down for the Tea Swap.

Well, do we have any Susan Branch fans on The Porch? I just got her latest book "A Fine Romance". Just
started it but really enjoying it. It is one that you have to buy in Hard Cover because it is not one
I would think would be as good on an E-Reader.
Also, there is a Book out right now that I would like to recommend to Our Mystery Fans...It is Called:
The Great Pearl Heist. It is based on a true story about a strand of Pink Pearls that are stolen and
Scotland Yard tries to solve the caper. It takes place around the 1920's I believe. This String of Pearls
is worth twice as Much as The Hope Diamond. If you figured it on Today's Jewelry Market these Pearls
would be worth something like $270 Million Dollars. I have not read this book yet...just picked it out
for the Book My Reading Group will read for January. It just sounded so interesting I thought I would tell
you girls about it. I found it on Audible for $5.50 and not much more on Kindle at around $9.00. Amazon has
it for $8.50 in Hard Cover and you can get it at Barnes and Noble in Paper for $16.99. Lots of options.

OK...off to read. Have been enjoying Some Gingerbread Tea this week. If you have never tried it before...I
recommend it.

Night My Porchies,
Peggy

Hi Gals, it's snowing lightly outside/30/gray. Yesterday and last night we had, in order, lots of snow-rain-more light snow but in the 40's all night. Crazy. It's a stay in and read and drink tea kind of day.
Peg, It took me 2 days to get my cards all done. It use to only take one, but I'm past the days of rush, rush, rush to get them done. Now I recline and sip tea and do it leisurely. hahaha
Put me down for September please for the TeaSwap. Thank You! Thanks for Hosting this year!
Now, ya'll give her ANY trouble and I WILL put my hands on my hips! *giggle*
I love blue cheese burgers! mmmmm What do French fries in truffle oil taste like. Some say that truffles taste very earthy...so...does that mean...like dirt, how-be-it, good, rich dirt. hahaha SO...I'm thinking, potatoes with the (good) dirt left on. hahahahahahaha Explain please!!!
OMGosh, I sure hope your hubby is ok. Last time he fell....oh dear....
That Scotland Yard mystery sounds like my kind of read. Thanks! I'll check it out.
Cherime, I love that "kids" blanket....so sweet! Chubby little cherubs!
Jan, help me out here...my "little gray cells"(as Poirot says)((British show I watch))are in need of nourishment.....is the school putting a fence up on YOUR property? I need a few more words here to understand what you mean. Thanks!
Heather, Happy Belated 34th Birthday to you. Looks like you had fun. You have a great smile girl! When I look at you smiling I find myself smiling. It's contagious! Love that cake. So clever. Give hubby a pat on the back from me. Wow! Those trees are so full....how pretty. You must have a lot of floor space to fill in.
So, even though I can't drive one...what is it about tractors that we love so much? At the county fairs I love just gawking at the tractors for awhile...'er...too long! hahaha
Merry Christmas to you and yours too!
Grace, I love watching and feeding the birds in my backyard. We feed year round and have some pretty interesting varieties to enjoy daily...even a coopers hawk that swoops in occasionally for a feathered snack. They are all beautiful to me.
awwwwww.....just look at that adorable squishy kitty mug. What's his name? I'm a kitty mama too. Rascal rules this domain. Dogs have owners-cats have servants! hahaha He goes outside on a leash every time we go out to work in the yard, enjoy the patio and front porch and occasionally hubby *plomps* him in a snowdrift and he shows no sign of alarm. He trusts us. If Mom&Dad says it's ok...then it must be ok! *giggle* He fetches, sits up&lays down on command. And he LOOOOVES when the doorbell rings. He just KNOWS it's someone to see him. hahaha He loves posing for pics too...looks all smug and cute! We use to have our house cats in 3's, but when they were all gone and we got Rascal, and tried to introduce other kittens, he said..."Umm...No!" So, he is the only one who owns us at this time. hahaha
Well, I think I shall go do ... SOMETHING! My butts flat from sitting here so long. *giggle*
Have a GREAT SonDay gals!
Stay warm and safe!

Judy - Glad I could make you smile too! We didn't get one of those trees. They were way too big! Our is a really fat one though. Check out the holiday gathering thread. I posted pictures of all 3 of my trees there. I think I finally have more snow that you - from the sounds of it. We had about 6 or 7 inches Friday night and Saturday. Sometimes it was big huge fluffy flakes and they were so pretty!!! We were out driving around with friends looking at Christmas lights, drinking hot chocolate, and listening to Christmas songs when the snow started. It was perfect!!! I posted some pictures of that too on the holiday thread. It takes too long for me to upload again tonight - I'm supposed to be working on Christmas gifts while hubby is snowmobiling, but I had to take a break and visit with my sisters. I

Peggy - thanks for putting me down for the tea swap. I'm really looking forward to it. I'm glad your husband is alright. I know how he feels though - a couple years ago it was freezing rain and I was running to the house. When I went to reach for the back door my fit slid out from under me and I landed right on my bottom - just as my father in law was walking out to check the woodstove. I was so embarrassed.

Grace - love the kitty picture. I have 10 cats, but they're all outside. We do take good care of them though. They're all friendly at usually meet me at the back door every time I come outside.

TLTammy - I bet your butterflies are looking forward to a break as much as you!! I hope you have a great break and that the new year goes smoothly for you.

Well porchies - my tea is gone so I better get back to work on Christmas. I did make my first batch of cookies today - chocolate chip M&M - so help yourself.
