Hey Judy...sign me up for your give away girlie!!!
Wow...your Tea Pkg took awhile. I bet it was because of the bad weather.
And I bet that Furnace Guy is keeping hopping busy like a bunny!!!
Oh, my goodness we are showing our Age girl with the whole Currier and Ives thing!
I felt the same way you did when I saw her pictures!!

Welcome Teresa...glad you found The Porch. Kick your boots off, pull up a Rocking Chair,
and sit a spell and tell us a little about yourself. I know I have seen you on other Threads.

Joyce...Oh, that is such a Sweet thing you are doing for Valentine's Day! Bless your heart!
And dinner sounds Scrumptious! And your Valentine Buckets of Treats sounds Delightful!
Your quests will Love all the fuss and fun you went to the work of on their behalf. Enjoy
your Valentine's Day and Sonday too!!!

Hi Judith, Sabrina, Shannon, Sylvia...hope you ALL Have a Lovely Valentine's Day Weekend!

I just got done walking my dog! Still have to head to the Fitness center to walk for another
45 minutes. Last week I got over 10,000 steps every day but one...and I would have made that
day too if I hadn't had to try and resolve a Friend Crisis. I didn't make the 70,000 steps
in 5 days but I did accomplish 89% of that goal...and felt pretty good about that! I am
going to continue to try and hit 10,000 step everyday and keep at it. When I walk at the
Fitness center it is more intense. I walk half of the 45 minutes and I am pouring sweat off
my head and face. Did I ever mention that I hate to sweat? When I was young and thin...I walked
everywhere and never broke a sweat even in 95 degree weather. Now I run the vacuum and I'm
sweating up a storm. LOL

OK girlies...Enjoy Your Day and Make some one feel Loved this Weekend!

Hugs and Delight,
Peggy

Judy aka HerbLady55, I used to have a complete set of the blue and white Currier & Ives dishes. (gravy bowl and all). Gave it to a friend who was just setting up house and had no dishes. We had just gotten married and had our Pflatzgraff and china. Sometimes I still think of the blue and white though. No, I never heard my mother speak German before or after her surgery. She always did have a very strange reaction to sedatives and anesthesia.

Happy Valentines Day, tomorrow girls.

Hi everyone! I wanted to stop here on the porch for a few minutes :) Hubby got home late las night - yay! Now to figure out a "new" routine. Today has been kinda relaxed, and hubby is busy spoiling me. He has taken over the kitchen... this morning was eggs benedict for breakfast, and now he is working on grilled steaks, crab cakes, baked potatoes and salads for dinner. My oldest daughter in in the kitchen as well working on some bread so we can have garlic bread with our dinner tomorrow night. This left me with menu planning and making a grocery list. I have the first part of that done.... now to make the list. Thankfully the list will only be for the next week, whereas the menu was for the rest of the month. Golly we go through a lot of food, lol. Tomorrow will be church, then a fellowship afterwards, and then headed home. I'll be making our traditional "Valentine's Day dinner" which consists of chicken parmesan over pasta, with pepperonis cut into heart shapes :) The kids love it! On Monday, since hubby has off, I think we are going to go on a field trip.

Judy - I'd love to join your drawing. Hoping your furnace will be fixed soon. That is a HUGE difference between the quotes. For goodness sake that is doubled the one estimate!

Peggy - way to go with your steps!!! You are doing an incredible job! I really need to start walking again! If I can get my crew into a routine, perhaps we will start walking in the morning!!!

Judith - that story about your mom is so wild!!! I have always wanted to learn German. My mom's side of the family is Amish, so they all speak German/Pennsylvania Dutch. I'm not sure if it is pure German, or a different dialect? I really would like to learn more about that side of the family... it is funny, I grew up with them, and have always looked at them as normal, but having their own ways, but there are many things I don't know!!! I will say there is something magical about their way of life!!! If it wasn't for their religious beliefs (though that varies by the order/church), I would totally be up for becoming Amish :)

Ok Peggy Ann & Shannon, got yuns down for the drawing!
Judith, back in 1975 when I got married(first time) Mama gave me a set of the Currier&Ives mugs.I loved them until they invented the microwave and I couldn't use them in it. They had a pure gold rim that couldn't go in a microwave or they'd spark. Drawback. They became shelf-sitters after that. Eventually I got rid of them. Sad! Now I decided that I don't want to use a microwave.lol Can't win.
OK Girlie, Ya'll have a great Valentines day! Nite!

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!

Peggy you are doing great!! I wish there was a way I could link my tracker with friends like the fitbit. That is the only drawback I've found so far. I'm not doing so great but I'm still in recovery from the trip. It is taking my longer than I'd hoped to feel normal again. This soreness is lingering too (darn fibro). I'm hoping to get a little bit back to normal this week, maybe getting back into a routine will help.

Shannon-your hubby sounds so sweet to treat you!!

Hubby has to work today so no special plans-that said we don't usually do much for valentines day. I try to avoid the commercialized aspect of many holidays so I tell him I don't want anything. But usually he gets me something small anyway. Maybe just a chocolate bar or something but he just can't deal with doing nothing lol. I guess some of the people he works with were mad about working today (it is a normal day in the cycle they work and it has been on the schedule for months so not something they just found out about) because their wives were mad they wouldn't be home for valentines day. 16 years as a military wife and many as a military kid before that and this is SOOOO not worth being upset over!

I have to think of some sort of cute valentines for the kids to take to coop wed. I really don't want to buy valentines, although I may go to the store and buy some candy for them, so I'm trying to come up with cute homemade ones. I saw some using fruit that was cute! Since there are three kids I need three different ideas. Guess I'll check pintrest-better do that after the work I need to get done or the day will slip away!!

We aren't going to church today because the way I'm still feeling today I'm not up for getting all the kids ready and dealing with them during the service (no children's church due to the holiday) we also don't have awana because of the holiday so I'm going to use the quiet day with no plans and no school to get ready for the week and caught up on things. Hopefully I still have some time to crochet this afternoon too!

Happy Valentines Day!
Peg, what an adorable card! Sounds like some of you are getting spoiled by your guys! Good for you!
Here's what I found waiting on my kitchen table. How does he sneak this stuff in without my knowing? Baffles me!

I got a beautiful card and a sweet little Steiff Duckling stuffed animal (I collect Steiff animals) from my sweet hubby along with a hug and a kiss. My son went to Denver to spend the weekend with friends so hubby and I could have the weekend alone together. My hubby is 100% disabled, my son and I are his full time caregivers so it was nice to have some sweet alone time with my wonderful, adorable hubby.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone I hope your day was sweet.
Hugs,
Deb

Ok here is my vent, and by no means is this directed at ANY farmgirl. My problem is the way people have sent me sympathy cards on the loss of my dad. Two cards, specifically from relatives of my DH, came addressed to Mr. And Mrs, and the other to Wayne and Sylvia. This was MY dad, cards should have been to ME, or at least my name first!!!! These people did not even know him-I'm not FROM here! AND if wasn't bad enough....the store bought sympathy card was simply signed by the individual-no other note or sentiment. People need to take a lesson from Farmgirls on how to send cards! Oh and to finish off this rant-it took about 10 days for me to hear from my pastor and that was a note on facebook! Ok rant over - thank you all for reading!

Sylvia...Rant on Girl! Let it All Out!! Now, take a deep breath and let it go!!! Some people
just have no social skills and do not know how to properly express condolences,empathy or
sympathy. I'm sorry...it was your Dad and your loss and I totally understand. Also, my husband
is a Retired Pastor...and we did many Hospital Visitations for people in other Churches...whose
Pastors refused to make Hospital Calls on their own members. So, we happily went and prayed with
people and met their families etc. I'm not patting myself on the back...but I don't get Pastors
who either ignore the hurts of the hearts of their members or just really don't care. That is just so
very very sad to me. My heart goes out to you Sylvia and I am genuinely sorry for your loss.

For You Porchies who have prayed for my Step-Son Daniel...I can't thank you enough but I continue to
ask you to keep him in your prayers as The Holy Spirit brings him to mind. Larry and I went to visit
Daniel today and his spirits were very positive but he wants out of there. He is in a Prison Camp for
White Collar Crime...it is in a beautiful location but the conditions these people have to endure is
really inhumane. When this prison camp was first built it was 2 guys to every 10x10 room (no cells)
but now they cram 6 guys in each space...by using bunk beds...but they are connected together side by
side too. Daniel sleeps in the middle of two other guys...and if he turns over and stretches out a
leg or arm he is in someone else's space. They have no place to sit and write or study or do anything
in their room. The have absolutely no quiet time. Our son goes to 3 Religious Services on Sunday just
to get some peace and quiet. He goes to a Buddist Service (which he doesn't believe in) but the lights
are off with only a Candle for Meditation. So, it is quiet and he can commune with God and meditate on
things he needs to concentrate on...like his appeal. Then after that he goes to a Catholic Service because
it is done in Latin which he can't understand, The lights are low and again he can sit there and pray to
God and meditate on those things that you need quiet time for. The he goes to his Christian Service for
Worship. We wouldn't even put 6 large dogs in a space that small...and you shower with others you even use
the toilet in front of everyone else you have no alone time ever. It really is deplorable. If he was in a cell...he would have it either to himself or one other inmate...not 6 big burly guys crammed in one tiny
space. Anyway, our visit was really good and we got to hug him and touch his arm or hands when we spoke
and then we even got to hug him again when we left. We haven't been able to do that for a couple years...
it was so precious for us all. Anyway...we are still praying for his early release. He shouldn't be there.
Selling a Product that isn't illegal because you made a lot of money doing it and The Pharmaceutical
Companies don't like that very much and neither does the FDA obviously and yet You can still go online and buy the exact product Daniel was selling all over the Country and all over The World. So where is the Justice and what was the Crime???? I don't know!!!

I'm tired but it was a very good day. 2 1/2 hrs getting there,
2 hrs to visit and 3 1/2 getting home in rush hour traffic. I
still need to go to the Fitness Center and walk...which will be
nice after sitting so long. I'm not use to that. LOL

Love and Hugs,
Peggy

Mom, I agree with Peggy, people just don't know any better, lame excuse but we know where you are it is true. People don't have real social skills and are self centered and can't empathize with others.

We are both bery excited about moms new loom, even though I'm 5000 miles away!! I think she should post pictures!!!

Things have been a little busy around here, so I can't remember if I said that I got my tea package and thank you! My guy and I celebrated Valentine's Day on Saturday because the weather was really nasty and getting even worse for Sunday. I get aggravated with him at times (who doesn't with their man) - but he is so thoughtful. Not only did he buy me a Vermont Teddy Bear and chocolates, he also brought a beautiful box of chocolates for my 87 year old Mom who is staying with me for the winter. She was so surprised and touched.

Anyway - no job yet, but still praying for something to come along. My unemployment ends soon. Also no health insurance. I'm getting bounced back and forth between healthcare.gov (Obamacare) and Medicaid. Legally, one or the other has to accept me, but so far no one has agreed which one I should be covered under. What a mess. Plus, now they can fine me for not having insurance - arghhhhhhh.

It has been brutally cold here with wind chills down to -25 or more, but warming up and raining today. Such a strange winter here in the northeast. Can't wait for Spring.

Judy - would love to be in your drawing if you're still taking names.

Think of you all often even when I'm only "lurking" !!

Luanne, I got you down for the give-away. Praying for your job situation.
Peg, still Praying for Daniel! That really Is a bad living quarters situation.
We have very cloudy skies/38 and woke to a total of 5 inches of very heavy, wet snow.
By Friday we are suppose to be 50. We'll see.

Did a little catching up....
Joyce...your farm is gorgeous!

PeggyAnn....I'm so glad that you all got to see Daniel. Sounds a little shady to me how he got to be there. If it's being sold all over he shouldn't be there. I got your tea package. I just haven't really been on to say anything. Thank you! I've already tried the Sweet Rose. It was certainly different but not bad.

Well, we lost our piggy Olive. We're not sure what happened or what was wrong with her but she is in Heaven's farm. Unfortunately it was my oldest son (12 yrs old) that found her when he went out to feed them. The farmer we got them from gave us another sow. She is a red color so the kids named her Scarlett. LOL Scarlett O'Piggy She will take some time getting used to us. She is also a sister to the other two. Olive almost looked like she was pregnant but she was too young for that. She was just 5 months. I was told that sows couldn't get pregnant until they are about 8-9 months of age. Believe me, I'm closely watching these two now. At the first sign of anything I'm calling the vet.

On a good note we are hoping to get some chicks here soon. Rural King has their equipment set out ready to get a new batch of babies. I'm excited! I love chickens!!

The weather here has been crazy. Snow one day, the rain, then sunshine and back to snow. Gotta love living in Kentucky. Wait five minutes it will change again. LOL!

Well porchies, I believe that I'm going to go and do some stitching for a while before bed. Have a great night and keep warm!!

Sabrina...thank you for praying for Daniel. That means a lot to me and especially because you
don't really know the whole story...but believe me if you did...it still would make no sense to
you...because it doesn't to any of us either.

Luanne...your guy sounds like a keeper too and that was so Sweet that he thought of your mama also.
Still praying for your job situation. Unemployment running out and no Insurance that sounds like a
very scary situation to be in. Keep us posted.

Judy...Yes, there sleeping quarters are like Sardines in a can. It is terrible. There is some
stuff I wish I could share with you all but I can't because I was told not to put it in writing to anyone because it could have repercussions on Daniel. Lets just say that the sleeping isn't half the problems
in there. We got a really sweet email from Daniel last night where he stated he was so happy I came
because I am so warm and wonderful (unlike his adoptive mom) and that when his Dad and I left he watched
us climb in the car and drive away and he got all choked up. I know because Larry is 73 Daniel worries
about his dad dying before he gets out in 2019. He kept saying, I'm so glad you guys are doing your
level best to get healthier and stay healthy because when I get out we are all going to do a family trip
together and just play and have some fun! And he also said, "If...I get called up and told that they have
over-turned my case...I hope you guys can come get me immediately." We assured him we would! We are trying
to arrange for Sabrielle (his 10 yr. old daughter)to be able to come down with the other grandparents to
visit her dad. That would do Daniel a World of good...and help Sabby not to worry so much about her daddy.
They still have not Authorized Karis (his wife) to have visitation...which is crazy. They do such cruel
things like that just to get to these guys and mess with their heads...and let them know that the Federal
Government plays by it's own rules. Anyway...enough about all that.
So, when are you doing your drawing Miss Judy? Just so we have something fun to look forward to.

RoDonna...Sorry about your little piggy. Hope this other one thrives. Yes, the Sweet Rose tea wasn't as
Sweet as I expected and it had kind of a Chai taste to it too didn't you think? It wasn't bad just not
what my taste buds were anticipating. The next bag I brewed I added some Vanilla carmel tea with it and
it tasted much better! LOL Judy taught me that you can come up with some good blends just by mixing
different flavors...I was always a "Purest" until Judy convinced me to live on the wild side. ROFLOL

Ok farmgirlies...I'm off to bed and a good cozy read!

Hugs and Blessings,
Peggy
