Hi, farm sisters! Just a quick on and off the porch to thank Luanne for the tea package! The whole package was a real treat. However, those tuck ins were adorable! Made me want to run out and buy a little black dress!
Thinking of all of you!
Right now, little missy ggd is up from very short nap and ggma has to run again...
Hugs!

Hi Ladies - just thought I'd quickly pop on to welcome Wanda! I'm glad you shared your story - will let us know how we can pray for you :) What kind/subject book are you just getting published? That's so exciting!!

Praying for you all in each of your concern's...I'm not a night person...and it's nearing 11pm after a busy busy day of teaching piano, so I'm ready to go to bed :)

Shannon-I am just now trying out wool for the first time myself but I'll help as much as I can :) just let me know when you know for sure and I'll put these in the mail.

Luanne, I got your tea package! Seems quick since others are also just now getting theirs. Thanks!!

The doc yesterday said that if it looks good on Wed we would stop doing....something....I'm not clear on what (language barrier) but I think after speaking to a nurse friend that he is saying they will stop irrigating it. Shannon I think you are correct that they will keep packing it until it heals. Which is annoying but I understand why. Hopefully it heals quickly, it seems like they are putting less packing in each time and hubby thinks it is getting smaller.

Busy today trying to get some homeschooling stuff back in order and at least start getting the kids back on a schedule (even though we are still making every other day trips to the doc). Getting things that got disorganized at the end of my pregnancy more organized again, setting the schedule back up and looking into some things to add to our school. Also getting the girl's scout stuff in order and figuring out what we need to finish up this summer to meet our goals. All this in the few minutes here and there the baby lets me put him down!!

I feel like so many things have been neglected the last couple months I'm a bit overwhelmed by it all.

We are also having some anger issues from my 5-year-old. I'm a bit concerned because it seems like more than what would be normal for her age. Everything is met with anger, if she has trouble doing something she screams, if she wants something she demands it in an angry tone. If something isn't how she thinks it should be she yells and speaks angrily. I'm getting quite tired of it. I've tried to talk to her about why she is feeling angry and help her express it more appropriately but she doesn't seem to get it. Just what I need right now when I have a bunch of other things going on. It started before the baby but has gotten progressively worse....I don't think it is the baby but it could be the lack of structure contributing to it.

Off to try to tackle laundry while the baby is happy!!

Sabrina - You sound like one busy lady! To answer your question about Hallettsville: I'm actually in Ezzell, which is even closer to Victoria than Hallettsville is! Victoria is 34 miles from my place, which is about 6 1/2 miles east of the highway...about 18 miles S/SE of Hallettsville. Can you see me now? :)

Being new to this porch, it's a little hard to get folks and needs straight right now so I'm praying for everyone according you your needs...even those you may not know about right now. :)

For those who asked what the book I'm submitting now is about, it's a middle grade novel written from the viewpoint of a young southern girl in 1953, based on a portion of my early life. But, since I wanted it to help youth grow in understanding and compassion for others while seeing that they can survive difficulties in their own lives in a strong and healthy way, it wouldn't work as a memoir...trust me.

After the deaths of her mother and only brother she believes her daddy will die if she lets him out of her sight. Daddy leaves her with poor grandparents. Angry, confused, and struggling with grief, she reaches out to the people in her small world, including crippled Corine, a black “throw away” girl, and a motherless teen whose porch sports a red light at night (concentrates on her heart and dreams, not what you might think)... Lots of life lessons, some real, some stepped out of thin air and onto the pages and fit perfectly. The author I worked with had great things to say about it, so I'm hopeful. But, since vampires, etc. seem to be the thing, I just have to find the right agent who knows just the right place to go with it. It has not been published; I'm searching for an agent. When that happens I will be tickled to let y'all know.

Good Morning My Porchies...

Not going to try to comment to everyone today...as I have a Fibro Migraine...but wanted to hop on to say that
The Funeral Service was beautiful yesterday...other than we left at 10:00 am and got home at 4:00 pm...with an
hour break in between the Funeral and Grave Side Service. It was good to see so much family...as everyone has
grown up and gone their own directions in life, many of our nieces and nephews have their own grown kids with
grand-kids. One of my husbands grade school friends came to the funeral. It was nice to meet him and his wife
as they have become Christians later in life.

I have read all the posts and praying for everyone's needs. Wanda I am sorry to hear about your tragic marriage.
I was at one time in a verbally abusive marriage for eight years...but not physically abusive. They both leave
their own scars but God can heal those deep wounds if you allow Him too. Your book sounds very interesting and
I know you will find the right Venue for it.

OK Girlies...Have a Beautiful Day...and do something to cheer up someone else today!!! It will make you feel Great!

Love and Hugs,
Peggy

Peggy - I hope you feel better soon. Not fun!

Thank you for your kind words. And you are right. I'm back to being 'me' now instead of feeling like I'm trapped in a big, black bag, and it's a really good feeling. 38 years is a long time and, if God had not put me into a corner in order to get me out of there, it probably would have turned out very badly. It's funny that I don't feel I have any wounds. God has kept my heart free from hate and filled it with compassion, and I am so thankful for that. Looking back over my life I can see that He had His hands around me guiding each and every thing that happened, even the 'bad' ones, in order to make me the person I am and grow me as a Christian.

Sabrina - I truly wish that I could fly out to help you - I'm sending you the biggest hugs possible, and lots of prayers. So much on your plate right now.

Wanda - OH! I would SO buy that book for my daughter! We don't read vampires etc. in our family, and I think she would love it. She's reading Caddie Woodlawn, Little Women, Little House on the Prairie, Phyllis Wheatley etc. so I think she would enjoy it very much. She's 9 - so perhaps a little on the young side for this particular novel - but I think giver her a year or two and she'd be ready! I can't wait - I'll be praying for an agent for you!

Peggy - praying for you today!! Warm hugs...and a soothing dark room are sent your way :)

I had a rather eventful start to my day today - I was laying in bed, waking up, thinking in my head what I need to do today, hearing my boys giggling in the background. The giggling turned to screaming from my middle child (7) and it turns out he was spinning and hit his head very hard on the dresser - it hit his lip and gums, cutting them both open, so we rushed to the hospital and got some stitches. He did so good - he was so brave. He's in a bit of shock right now, so I laid him on the couch and put on Curious George for him. My other two kiddies were really good and patient in the hospital while we were waiting. I do wish at times like these that we had family or a good friend to drop some kids off at, but they really did well considering all the waiting we had to do - my daughter started sobbing in the van on the way home as she was very upset seeing the needle and the stitches take place, but she was fine during - I think it was a bit of after shock for her too. My 4 year old just kept saying "That's a lot of blood!" and it didn't phase him a bit :) Praising God it wasn't a more serious injury and for holding my little Levi throughout the whole situation - he truly is a good and gracious God.

Hope you all have an uneventful day :)

Oh, Joyce! I can't help my southern self; I have to say, "Bless their little hearts!" And yours. Mine are all grown, youngest 37, but I DO remember those times...and it's always sudden. Praying all goes well for everyone.

Thank you so much for the kind words about the book, and the agent prayer. I really hope I'll find one soon.

Joyce...your day did start out with some excitement didn't it??? It took me back years and years ago...when my
brother and sister and I were playing swing the statue in our bedroom and my little sister hit her head on the
metal bed frame and it drove her two front teeth up into her gums. It was a horrible mess of blood and terrified
screams from all of us. She ended up having to have those baby teeth cut out of her gums...stitches and then
for years she had no front teeth. She would go around every Christmas singing "All I want for Christmas are my
two front teeth" (anybody remember that song?) They never came in until she was in 4th grade. ~ Praying for all
your kids and you mama...for a quiet few days to rest and decompress. Those are hard life lessons for the kids
and emotional trauma for all.

Wanda...I love that you feel the same way I do about the Marriage and Divorce...I learned so many "God Lessons"
from the good and bad in life...that I wouldn't go back and change anything even if I could. Even in my own
bad or wrong choices in life...they were still stepping stones of my Faith and made me who I am today. I did
at one time have The Elders anoint me and pray over me (according to James in the NT) for the hurts and wounds
of the past...and after they did I was completely healed of all the emotional scars I carried. The ones caused
against me and ones I caused myself. But that is the beauty of a Life in Christ...he is the only one that needs
to carry scars.

My Migraine is better after having gone back to bed with Meds and a dark room...it isn't completely gone but at
least I don't feel like throwing up any more.

Love, Hugs and Blessings,
Peggy

Hi all :) It has been a busy day around here - our first day for WEEKS that it wasn't raining!!! I worked in the garden, pulling weeds and finishing up planting some seeds. My body hurts! But what a great reason to hurt :) I also got loads of laundry washed... love seeing clean laundry swaying on the line!

Sabrina - oh I am so sorry!!!! I agree with Joyce - flying out there would be great if we could. I would talk to hubby about me taking a hop, but I can't leave Lee right now! Are you guys eating a little differently since baby came? (I cannot remember his name right now! Sorry!!!) Just wondering if the anger issue could stem from a food allergy, knowing there are other issues with the kiddos due to foods. A friend's daughter, when she gets gluten becomes EXTREMELY angry and violent... on a normal basis she is not early as bad but they just figured out that is they take out "natural flavoring" (whatever THAT is!) she shows no signs of abnormal anger... May I encourage you to not get overwhelmed by your to do list and pre-set goals!?!? (coming from a list maker who has high expectations of one self!) While it is always a great feeling of success when goals are met, it is okay not to meet them when life happens!!! I would hate for you to get another abcess!!! I think you mention PPD.... I too fight that - and oddly it is more severe after my boys! I still need to look that up and see if there is "something" to that! But I know when I get overwhelmed by my own goals and desires, I am more likely to struggle with it!

Wanda - my brother publishes books if you are interested in contacting him. http://www.paintedgatepublishing.com is his website. I too think your book sounds fantastic!!!

Peggy - so sorry to hear you are fighting a fibro migraine! What makes them different than a regular migraine? Just wondering if part of mine are actually fibro migraines, lol. Glad o hear you are feeling better now, though!

Joyce - oh sweet Joyce! I am so sorry!!!! Will be praying for your sweet Levi!

Just a quick update, on wed the doctor didn't pack the wound and he said when I go back tomorrow if everything looks good it will be my last time!! Yay

Shannon, do we have a gender? Should I get a package ready to mail???

You ladies are so sweet for even thinking you wish you could come help. I know my mom and grandma also wish they were close to be able to help me. We will make due, don't worry I'm not pushing any of us too hard about school just trying to slowly get things back in order as I can. Shannon I think it is a possibility food is part of the issue, we have been too lax lately, but I don't think that is all of it, I also think lack of routine and structure is part of it, she is my child that pushes against structure the most but also needs it the most.

Wanda, I am not familiar with that particular area but I get the general idea :). My grandparents still live in Victoria and oddly enough my grandpa is a local author as well, he has three novels out and also anothe book he wrote with my brother, he does signings in the area all the time. Though his books may not be as wholesome as yours!! I'm with the other ladies your book sounds great for my daughter!!


I'll let yall know how it goes tomorrow!!

Sabrina - YAY!!!!! Praying tomorrow really truly will be your last day!!! And yes - we have a gender. It is a....... GIRL!!! Emily Jean, or Emi, is due around the end of August or beginning of September :) Let me know how much you want for the covers! I was wondering if it was the same child having the issues. I totally get the lack of structure causing issues... yet them being the ones that push against a schedule and lack of schedule! My kiddo like that does horrible with any type of change! Especially in routine. We were actually just talking about that today (my hubby and I) and how change is part of life and how we wish we could help him adjust easier! If you figure out a way to teach how to adjust to changes, please let me know, because I am truly running out of ideas!

I think I have finally started coming out of nurse mode and have started going into mommy mode... but I am also wondering if we are fighting a infection in Lee's leg, so I may be headed back to nurse mode! His appointment in tomorrow morning! Then after his, we go and see my daughter's orthopedic to see if her foot is healed... then off to grocery shop. Not excited about such a full day!!! We found out today that my hubby's medic leave to help with Lee was denied, even though the doctor wrote that he needed to have off! Soooo, thankfully we had some leave saved up, but with baby coming, we are really going to have to watch his days! We used up quite a bit with my trips to MD for my surgery!

Well I need to go plant some pepper plants and lavender, then get clothes off the line and then start dinner, so I will chat with you all later <3

Sabrina - here's to hoping that tomorrow's the last day!!

Levi is doing really :) He still struggle with eating, and yesterday the dentist said everything is look 100% OK, so I'm very thankful for that!!

A rainy day today...off to go look at some goats to *maybe* purchase :) :)

Hello My Porchies...

Wow, what a week around here. We had the funeral as I shared, then one of my younger women in my Bible Study
Group had an Emergency Gallbladder surgery, Then this morning I couldn't tell if I was having a heart attack,
or if it was Fibro pain in my left arm...from the shoulder down to my finger tips. I also realized I had slept
with that arm under my pillow which I don't normally do, and I have a Hyatal Hernia (don't know how to spell it)
but it masks heart pain sometimes. Just in case I got up and took 5 81 mg aspirin and started deep breathing
for awhile. Shortly the pain is gone and I know it wasn't my heart. PTL!!! So, I kept my hair apptment. but
while I was there my son called me and asked me check on his pregnant wife...because she is so tired that she
can't get out of bed but she has slept for 10 hours. Then I got a second phone call from the gal who Hostesses
Bible Study at her house every week and her daughter is in Emergency (another one of the gals in my Bible Study)
with a heart arrhythmia problem. The Mother is freaking out. So, I finish getting my hair cut...call the Mother,
find out they Hospital can find nothing wrong with the daughter after blood work and two EKG's but they want to
watch her for awhile. I go to my DIL's house and she looks like she hasn't slept in a week. So, I play with the
Grandson for while, and wait for the Midwife to call...and when she does she convinces Sadie that it is all part
of a second pregnancy (more tired than the first)...which is what I told her...but it was good to have the Midwife
back that up. So, I came home and my husband is still in bed at 3:30 in the afternoon. He is stressed and grieving
from the loss of his siblings and he has had very little work this month from the Seattle Area Company He works for.
Which, my husband needs to keep busy. Sooooooooooooooooooooo whew...isn't life exciting some weeks. Now, I am deep
breathing again just to relieve my own stress level. LOL Too Crazy!!! Bible Study is canceled tonight and that is
a good thing for everyone...I think.

Shannon...Congratulations on The Girl Baby!!! And I too love the name!!! Very Sweet...and Farmgirlish.
The Fibro Migraine is no different than a regular migraine except they come with a weather change. Where
before my Migraines were due to monthly hormonal changes and I'm way past that time in my life.

Sabrina... Hope you got the all clear today from the Dr. You poor girl you have really been through the
ringer. You are smart to go light on the Home Schooling Stuff until you can really develop a working
home-life pattern again. Structure in one's life is really good...but not always A Reality Factor.
How is your little guy doing??? We still would love a picture or two.

Joyce it is raining here too. But next week we are suppose to be back in the warm and dry weather.

Wanda...it looks like you already have a Book Fan Club here on the Porch. So, hurry up and get it to a
Publisher. LOL!!!

OK Girlies...off to read and put my feet up for awhile.

Love and Hugs,
Peggy

Bless your heart, Peggy! What a day! Hope you have some relaxing reading time, and that tomorrow is much smoother.

The book - :) Bless you! I am so ready to do that. This agent search can be a headache, especially when they each want things submitted a different way. I've thought about self-publishing but think it probably involves more than I have time to do. If there is a possibility that an agent may still pick it up and take it further, I still might end up doing that.

We've been having horrible weather this past week. Now I'm battling fleas and mosquitos. :(

Hi gals! A lot of you are having rain. Guess what we had last evening? Snow flurries. Yup! *sigh*
Well, I think all the depression and stress is catching up with me too 'cause I slept until 4PM today.
I have good days and bad days thinking of Mama and Jim. Don't know what I'd if God weren't on my side!
I'm sure it would be Much worse!
Praying for my Porch-Buds!

Doc says NO MORE VISITS!!! YAY!!!

Shannon-I will send you the covers. They were given to me so I'm just paying it forward, if you don't use them or don't like them just pass them along to someone else :). I'll try to get them in the mail next week. And CONGRATULATIONS!

Here is a recent pic of the baby!



And one of all of us from when my mom was here a while back:

Sabrina...Oh, the baby looks like a Happy Little Guy!!! And I love the Family Picture too!!!
Thanks for sharing!!! And congrats on the good news at the Dr.'s!!! Woot! Woot!!

Judy...Snow??? What??? It is Spring Time!!! Praying for restorative sleep for you! Life can be so
Stressful sometimes (OK,a lot of the time...OK,OK, most of the time)but hey, Praise God That He is in CONTROL
and we don't have to be. *Big Sigh*

Patsy...continued love and prayers!!!

I think I am going back to bed for awhile. I did finish the book I was reading last night. Gray Mountain by
John Grisham. Slow moving but good story line...whiny main Character (the kind you want to slap and say "HEY,
Snap Out of It!") I still recommend it however!! Good Read!

Sweet Dreams Girlies!

Trying to find the words to express what I am feeling right now, and there are none. Took Lee (my 9 yo) to the pediatrician this morning at 0830. His leg smelled like it was infected, and it was starting to get red. They put him on a second antibiotic. Then we had an appointment for my oldest with the orthopedic at 11. After getting the all clear for her (PRAISE GOD!) I mentioned to him that he needed to tell his partner (who saw Lee in the OR to make sure his bone and tendons were unharmed) to make sure when he recommends absorbable stitches, that he also tells the ER residents that they need to put more stitches in.... He asked what I was referring to, so I filled him in. He asked to see Lee's leg and said that his partner was actually there at the office. They took a look and it was worse than it had been only three hours prior!!!!! So he now is going in for surgery tomorrow morning! My stress level is SO HIGH!

Happy Sunday everyone,

LuAnne I got your tea package and tucks. Thanks so much.

Sobyn lovey picture

Peggy praying for you and hoping you feel better today.

It has been very busy in my neck of the woods. Last night was my prom for my sons. It is the last one for them and this mama had a few tears. They graduate in three weeks and they turn 19 in two weeks. A lot of fun times we have this week looking through pictures etc. I am busy finishing up with school and my butterflies as well. We are done in three weeks also. Sheesh the year has flown. But I guess August to May can go fast when you are having fun. They have been a pretty good class this year.

It is beautiful here today. I am hoping it will be for graduation. We are having the party at our house so nice weather would be great. I love seeing the trees bloom and we now have two new baby calves running around. They make me laugh.



This is a picture from last night. Parents could come and take pictures. I am proud of my boys. They looked pretty sharp.
love to you all,
Tammy

Tea is like being in the stars with God.

Well, here is The Baby Announcement my kids posted yesterday. Little Elijah (who is getting big) with his book
that I bought him...to understand about the new baby he will be getting in Dec. I thought the picture turned out
so darling.

Shannon...Oh, my gosh I bet your blood pressure has sky-rocket with the news of Surgery. Deep Breaths and Trust the
Lord that he will be right there in that operating room with those Dr.s and Nurses. Praying for YOU, LEE and the
entire Family. Keep us posted on how it all goes.

Teacher Tammy...oh, goodness your boys are so handsome. I can hardly believe how fast this school year has gone
already and it must have flown for you. I pray that you will have Fabulous weather for their Graduation and the
Party at your home. I am sure you and their dad will be popping the buttons off your shirts with Pride at those
two young men.

Judy...how are things going with Jim and Patsy? How are things going with you and Dave? We continue to uphold
you all in prayer.

Long day but great Church Service this morning!! Hope you all had a Fabulous Sonday!!!

Hugs and Joy,
Peggy
