Patsy said they should be home tonight. They are all ready to sit still in one spot for awhile. She said both kids were ready for 'Home!'

Can't wait to see pictures of you new babies, Heather.

The weather here is hot hot hot did I say hot? So I spend most afternoons inside and then in the evening get out and water flowers etc.

love to you all

Hi everyone.

Heather, so sorry for your losses. Never easy to lose someone.

Tammy, got the tea package today. Thank you. I will make ice tea also with the raspberry one. Yummy.

Peggy, you are a grandmother like me. If I didn't tolerate something from my kids, it won't fly with the grands. My oldest just turned 15 and decided to have his party and invite the kids before asking my daughter if it was a good time. She was having a bad week and he started giving her an attitude while I was there.
I said when is this party? Tomorrow? Good, call or text all the kids and cancel the party. He looked at me and I said , your mother said she can't do it tomorrow so cancel it until next week. No attitude, nothing, he did it. I don't even entertain anything disrespectful, ever. This is a kind, respectful kid, so it was a little shocking he was doing this in front of me. I bet it won't happen again.

Judy, what can I say that hasn't been said except, Yikes!

Becky, I've been gardening too! How are you? Tired I'm sure. You'll have to have a farmstand!

Kayaking Tammy, what fun! Good for you. Let us know how WOW goes!

Shannon, to much company for me! More power to you! How are you feeling?

Sabrina, good luck with the kiddos.

I got a tick bite with the classic bullseye rash. Was I sick. I am feeling better and am almost finished with the antibiotic. Be careful when you are outside. Check yourself and kids thoroughly. The symptoms can be deadly so beware!

Blessings to all!

Be Blessed and Be a Blessing,

Tea Lady Tammy...I got my Tea Pkg yesterday. Thank you so much! I'm with everyone else with the Red Raspberry
Tea...it will make a nice cold Tea!! Right now if I drink hot coffee or hot tea I started sweating!!! I think you all know how much I hate to sweat! LOL

Just got back from an Evening Walk. It is cooler here in the Evenings than the mornings...and usually with a nice breeze too. I finally got Snickers a nice short summer hair cut yesterday...so he was a happy little guy!

Well, the kids are all moved and now they are tripping over boxes at the new house. They have more stuff than they need that is for sure. But don't we all!! I'm glad that my work is all done.

Darlene...Grand kids need guidance just like our kids did and I think Grandparents have an advantage over their parents...grand kids seem not to want to disappoint their grandparents. So a good dose of wisdom and grace can go alone way to help mold those young lives. ~ Oh, so sorry about the tic bite. Glad you got it though and got medicine right away. With Lyme Disease so prevelant these days tics are nothing to mess around with.

Heather...I bet you guys are really busy on the Farm and it doesn't help when it is overly HOT! Can't wait to
see your new pictures when you get time to post them. ~ Sadly, it is true that deaths usually comes in 3's. I don't know why but it just happens like that so many times.

Judy...so glad that Patsy made it home! I bet she was happy to be back in her own bed. She sure has been
a traveling Gal since her hubby died. She will probably start settling down a bit now...after the move and everything. But it is nice that she is closer to family there. She will probably feel more settled in a new
place, where she is getting a fresh new start.

OK, I'm really tired tonight. Hope to get up and go to Church in the morning. I didn't get to go last week
with helping the kids. But hopefully I will make it tomorrow.

Love, Hugs, and Blessings,
Peggy

Good Morning My Fellow Porchies,

It has been a busy week so far for me in trying to get plants replanted and weeding done in the garden.

PeggyAnn, I sure could of used your help when I moved last year. It is hard to believe that it has been 11 months since we have moved to Maine. I am a September baby and have been pretty healthy for the greater part of my life. Not so when I was a little girl. Even though I had breast cancer it has not kept me down for long. The emotional side maybe more than I would have liked. Glad to hear your hubby is doing better.

Teacher Tammy, Happy belated Anniversary. I can feel your pain when it comes to school starting. I am currently working towards my masters degree in education and this fall I shall be working as a substitute teacher in the high school I think. But school restarted for me this last Monday. I received the tea package this week and like the others I think that I shall make the Raspberry tea cold.

Nora, sounds like you had a bad day. I agree you should sit back relax, and do as little as possible.

Prairie Tammy, I would love to go kayaking. Never been but it sure does sound like a lot of fun. How was your outing? How did your job interview go.

Judy, we have very few hot days around here. This being our first year here and everyone telling me the weather is wetter than normal, I am not sure what is normal for my area. We have temps in the mid 70's with lows in the high 50's at night. Our house goes from cold in the morning to warm in the afternoon to very warm at night. But a fan is all we use to chill the house.

Shannon, that sure was a lot of company. I was tired just from reading about all that you dealt with.

Heather, sorry to hear bout the deaths in your family. I have heard that they always come in 3's also. Not sure where that started or even when, but hopefully it is only a saying and you do not have to deal with a 3rd.

Sabrina, sorry to hear about your trouble with your children. They may be acting out because of something. I saw a lot of that when I was growing up and living in the foster homes. Hang in there and hopefully they will grow out of it.

Darlene, Glad to hear you are healing from the tick bite. I worry about that up here especially with my little dog. We have lots of trees and deer in the area, but so far all of us has been clean. I look daily when we come in. As to my age I am 60 and will be 61 in September. My husband said we did things backwards all the time. I said that we did them correctly. This was the time we should be living our life and having fun at it. Just because it is tons of work, we both love the farm and what we are doing. The farmstand is something that we have been toiling around with. Unfortunately, we are still two green horns learning all about this farming stuff. I live on a farm for only about 2 years as a child, and Paul this is his first. Have tons of books and magazines and we read every night something that will help us. The only problem is that every time I read something, it just makes me realize how much I don't really know.

The farm is coming along pretty good. The black walnut trees are showing life. I have crops in my garden. We had to replant some or I should say we are in the process of replanting crops that did not come up. My fault. I did not know that there are warm and cold crops and planting them depends on the temps of the soil. Live and learn. LOL. Weeds have taken over most of the garden and where the crops did not come up we plowed them under with our rototiller. Starting over late in the season, but hopefully we will still get some fruits for our labor. Next year will be so much better.
Next month I will be going to New Hampshire to a women's herbal conference for 4 days. Can't wait. Also I will be meeting a farmgirl. Jules is how I found out about the conference and it will be nice to meet a farmgirl. She lives in Mass right now but in 2019 plans on moving to Maine. She will be about 2 1/2 hours from me then.
Well I better get going, have laundry to do today.
Have a beautiful Sunday.
Hugs
Becky

Friends, like heirlooms, are a special treasure

Becky...I'm 65 but I can still out pack most people. LOL I love setting up a new home too. With everything fresh andd clean and putting things away...it just makes me feel so good. I could move again right now if
hubby wasn't so sick. He never packs anything but his bedroom/office and I do all the rest including the move itself. And he says that last time was the hardest move on him ever. LOL Too funny! I got friends and family to help with the move itself...and they made it a piece of cake! Then because I can't stand to trip over boxes
I had everything unpacked and put away, pictures hung, knick-knacks out, books shelved etc etc in two weeks time. Not one box left. And if you saw my Apartment...I am not a Minamolist at all. I am more Victorian/Eclectic ... so lots of pictures, and knick-knacks...big and small.

I didn't make it to Church today. For some reason non of us could fall asleep last night. We were all up until 4:00 or 5:00 in the morning. My son Pat is having terrible Problems with Ghout...which I am beginning to think might be Lupus. We have scheduled an appointment with a Rhuematologist for Aug. 3rd. He has missed so much work and has been in such serious pain I feel soooooooooooo badly for him. He was the reason I had a hard time falling to sleep last night as I was up praying for him. A few nights ago...I got this oppression that came over me...and it was because I feel he needs Medical Disability but there is no way he can go 2 yrs without working. He has no medical insurrance...and we have been paying for his medications and Urgent Care needs. And most people who are that young do not get medical disability. He turns 39 next month. When I was 50 I was finally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue and I was told by various people I contacted that I was too young to get disability. But by age 53 I could no longer work and did eventually get it. But they don't even want to speak to you until you turn 55. It took me 2 years before I was awarded it. And I just prayed that I wouldn't have any other medical needs until they decided to deny me or award me the claim. If it hadn't been for our youngest son buying us food once a month and literally being our banker...we would have never been able to make it through that time of our lives. Talk about Depression setting in! It was horrible. Anyway, all of that just to say...I don't know what to do with my son and husband. It is all a bit overwhelming at our house.

Well, I think I need a nap. More Later Girls,
Peggy

Praying that your son find some relief soon, PeggyAnn.

My foot is better but I tend to over do and then it starts aching again and it's back to the chair. It seems better when I'm barefooted. I wore shoes most of yesterday and paid for it today. Go back to the doctor Tuesday for my finger.

Happy Monday,
Yall the raspberry tea is wonderful cold. I have that way right now since we are in a heatwave that nearly feels like it is going to smother us. Was at my classroom and came home...the ac is not working so I brought my stuff home to work on here. Did let principal know that is bit warm for this over 50 teacher lol. Hot flashes in the classroom would not be pretty.

Got bit by something yesterday so off to the dr to see what I need to do with it...since it is red and itchy don't want to take a chance with it especially on my foot but other than that just hanging out inside until the sun goes down so I can get outside. Planted some flowers this weekend so make sure they are watered and such. I need my fresh air.

stay cool ladies, flying out now
love to you all
Tammy

Good Morning My Porchies...

Today I feel like running Away. Won't bore you with the details. Let's just say being the only female
in this household at the moment is 3 males too many...and yes, I'm including the dog.

Just found out last night that my mom has some kind of blood disorder. She goes to a specialist on Thurs.
Please keep her in your prayers. Her name is Ann Pierce.

My Husband, My Son, My Mom...yup everything happens in threes.

Have a Great Day Ladies,
Peggy

Oh ladies! I need your prayers!!!! Things here are ROCKY!!!! My parents came over last Monday.... that night a fire started at our neighbor's. hubby went to go help fight it, leaving me here with my parents and children. There for awhile we were pretty sure we were going to have to evacuate, but thankfully the good Lord blessed us with some rain. About 200 acres burnt... It all started with the hay bailer throwing a spark! Then on Tuesday, my aunt and uncle got here... with my parents being here. My aunt decided to act like a spoiled child and would not talk with my mother, which is er sister, because she didn't feel like my mom had any right to be here because my aunt had planned the trip for so long!?!? That night we got slammed with a massive storm. It blew off part of our shingles and the paper underneath, and flooded our attic and the boys' bedroom :( Our broiler pen started to blow away, so my 13 year old daughter went and grabbed it. Praise God my hubby and dad went and helped, because she was about lifted off the ground too! Anyways, my parents left Wednesday morning and the last week with my aunt has been HARD! I love them dearly, but I cannot get any help from her! It is horrible!!!! Her hubby is almost 80 and my aunt who is in her early 60s acts as old as him :( I get why he cannot do much, but yikes! Anyways, they are here for another week, and it is really really hard on the kids! Oh - and I had my ultrasound this past Friday - another girl! We are going to name her Jennifer Rebecca, and call her Jenni. Sadly, it looks like I may have no choice but have a c-section :( Anyways, just wanted to fill everyone in on the craziness here. I'll try to write more soon!!! Love you all <3

Shannon, I feel for you about your aunt. Maybe you need to use your pregnancy to get some help from her. Ask her to cook super or something particular to do.

Glad the fire didn't get you bit the storm damage sound like a lot.

Shannon...Wow girl you really have had a real stressful week or two. Why is it that Family can be
our biggest challenge sometimes? Maybe you should plan on shorter stays for your family members. LOL
I am usually only good for about 3 days with company (I don't care who they are)...by then hubby and
I are ready for just the two of us. Now, my son Pat who is staying with us...is pretty darn easy going
and his situation is not just a visit...he is having to live with us. ~ Sounds like that storm was a butte!
I can just see your daughter having to hold down the Broiler Pen and nearly getting blown away herself. When I was a skinny young girl a strong wind could push me down the street. And that happened more times than just a
couple. LOL ~ Congratulations on another girl! And I really like the name you picked out!!! ~ Fires seem to be starting up all over the Country this time of year. But yours was a bit too close for comfort. I bet it kind of made you nervous with your hubby out trying to fight it with the Neighbor.

Nora...cute picture of your Cat!!! Really a Sweet Summer Picture! Love It!!

Well, my son and I both got up on the painful side of the beds yesterday. We were both grumpy. I had just got
up when he said, "Mom, you have to take me to Urgency Care as My Knee is killing me! And we have to be there
in 15 minutes!" I didn't know Urgency Care made Appoiontments but I was wrong. But I am a slow starter in the
Morning...so, I wasn't a happy camper having to rush to get dressed and running him over there. They are relatively close but...I like my morning coffee and my daily Devotional time with God...before I can face the Day. I got home, made my Protein Smoothie, took all my vitamins and one perscription and had just sat down
to drink my coffee and to have Papa Time...when Patrick called me to tell me that Urgent Care wanted him to
get to the Hospital Immediately...that they felt his knee should be drained of fluid and exrayed. So, forget the coffee, forget the devotional time and I'm back out taking him to the Hospital. We get therer and the
Emergency Room is packed out!! I had planned to stay with him but he said it looked like he was going to be there for awhile so I should go home and he would call me when he was done. As I passed the Desk I asked a nurse if she could guess on the wait time...to get in for help. She said 2 hours. So, I went back home...and hubby decided we should go for a drive and wait for Pat to call us and then go to BnN. So...we did. After 3 hours Pat called and all they did was exray his leg and put him in a full leg brace. And give him a perscription for a Strong Pain Killer. We dropped him off at home, ran and dropped off his perscription, when to BnN and then back to the Pharmacey, went to Chipatole for dinner (because after all the running around I wasn't in the mood to cook. Came home...ate half of my dinner and then took Snickers with me for a 4 mile walk.
At the end of the night Pat and I apologized for our pain induced grumpiness with each other...and gave each other a big huge hug. He said, "Mom, don't worry about it...that is the only time I have seen you grumby in
9 months...you are a lot of FUN!" I laughed out loud...thinking, he must not be very perceptive if he thinks
I have only been grumpy once in all that time. But I decided to leave him in his state of delusion and go watch some tv with hubby. LOL ~ Pat is going to the Rhuematologist at 1:00 and hubby agreed to take him...bless his heart! I hope they will find out why his gout pain has ramped up and is flaring so much these days. The poor kid has been in such excruciating pain for months.

My mom is also going to the Hemodologist this after noon. Hope it won't be as bad as we are all expecting.

For my Book Lover Sisters on here...I just read a really cute book with lots of Southern Humor called
"The Ladies' Room" by Carolyn Brown. Only cost 99 cents on my Kindle E-Reader.

Love and Hugs,
Peggy

WOW! Lots of stuff going on all of a sudden.
Sorry to all of you going thru stress and pain...AND family members who forget what it's like to have children to deal with. They all need to help with the problems...NOT be part of it!!! Adults who act like children should be called on the carpet and reprimanded and if they can't deal with it ...then move on... get out! Life's too short to raise 'Old Folks' too! Help out or get out, THAT'S what I say! Want to come back and try another time? Fine! If ya don't?... yer little feelings got hurt?... Fine!
*Whew*... that needed unloaded like a dirty baby diaper! I feel better! I just have no patience for folk coming into yer homes and acting like they are the only ones there for ya'll to wait hand 'n foot on! Nope... no patience at all! I draw the line, put my hands on my hips, clean house and bring the peace back in!
Ok...*breath*...Get off the 'soapbox' Judy.
weeeee....how is everybody now??? hahahahaha
We are experiencing really super humid weather that's weird because some of it isn't even hot. Low 80's, mid 80's...BUT yesterday and today it's in the 90's. It's MIS-ER-A-BLE!!! I'm ready for fall!
That 'bout wraps it up for me!
Oh, about Patsy and the gang. Kim came, they talked, they took Blaize for a few days and are bringing her back...ANNNND...leaving her at Kim's brothers house with his 2 kids, to go to school from there, when it starts next month. Schools aren't good in 'the mans' neck of the woods I guess. In other words, she doesn't want to finish raising her own daughter, but doesn't want to give her up either, not completely anyhow. This is just crazy. No man is worth all this mess!!! If she's having a mid-life crises... go it alone... don't take the child with you! ANNNND...there's pills for that!!!(ooops, back up on that 'soapbox' again aren't I?)
I told Patsy that her life down there is a Soap Opera! She agreed!

Hi ladies,

Tammy, I got my tea package!! Already drank it!

I skimmed, Shannon-oh my there is always something going on in your life!!! I think mine is busy until I read about yours!!

I finally had a somewhat slower week and next week should be even slower. I wasn't feeling good yesterday but had to push through because Sydney needed to help serve a meal at church as part of AWANA. I was sad last night because we went to the meal and we were there early for syd so I already had the kids sitting at a table and nobody sat with us, half the seats at the table were available but everyone sat everywhere else. I am really lonely right now, it has been one of the biggest struggles of this deployment, I don't have a good local friend. Well that just sort of rubbed the loneliness in my face. Nobody's fault, just an oversight but it was sad. So we hurried out as soon as Syd was done and I cried all the way home. I was really bummed. I hate that it takes so long to make friends.

So today I woke up and still had a headache but it was gone before lunch and so far I'm feeling much better physically.

It is HOT here, my chickens are panting. We are spending lots of time checking animal waters constantly. About all we can do I guess. I hate that my chickens are so hot, there isn't much shade in their pen and the house holds heat but I can't really fix either of those things right now.

I haven't done much of anything today. And I'm trying to be ok with that although I feel a bit guilty. I need a relaxed day. My oldest has been playing with the baby for the last hour and I've really enjoyed the little break. Dylan is 6 months old today. He has tried applesauce, banana, carrots, and sweet potato all in the last week (I usually wait till 6 months to try any food but he has been grabbing mine constantly for the last couple weeks so I caved). He is almost sitting up by himself and scooting and getting his tummy up off the ground. He really wants to run and play with his siblings.

I think a lot of my kids' behavior issues are related to D being gone and all the transitions they have dealt with the last year. I understand that has been hard for them but they also can't be such heathens. Luckily, they don't act like that for anyone else.

Sorry I didn't address everyone this time, know I am praying for all of you!

Hi My Porchies...

I shared this on FB and with a few Porch Sisters I have email addresses for but thought I would share these rare and interesting Stories with All My Porch Buds...

#8203;News comes from many places and some is true and some is fake. This week I came across two really intriguing ones and I'm wondering if you saw either one. The first is a green puppy at
http://kplr11.com/2017/07/19/golden-retriever-gives-birth-to-rare-green-puppy/

and the other was a weary elephant washed way out to sea and thoughtful folks who spent many hours getting him back home:
http://www.newmilfordspectrum.com/weird/article/Elephant-rescued-at-sea-10-miles-from-shore-11289219.php

My Son went to the Rhuematologist yesterday and they took 4 Huge Vials of Liquid off his knee. The vials were 2 inches round and 6 inches long. And he still has some fluid left on the knee. They said it was also gout. Pat thought he had just messed up his knee trying to favor his other foot. They put him on Prednizone for a week and told him not to go back to work for a couple weeks. Oh, my goodness...we are all having small house claustrophobia as it is. But as long as they get him well I will be happy. Now I am having to wait on him hand and foot too.

My Mom went to the Hemotologist yesterday and she said her news wasn't good...but she didn't really tell me things that made sense. She had told me that her White Blood count was way to high and that was why she was
going to the Hemotologist. But she said they told her that her bone marrow isn't producing either red or white blood cells. They wanted to do a Bone Marrow Draw and test it but my Mom said NO! They took 7 viles of blood and are running all kind of tests on her. Once they get the results they will call her...but they said they would all come back at different times. So, for now the plan is to retest everything in 3 months and go from there. I think she is holding back telling me somethings or else she wants me to think it is worse than it is.
With my Mom it is hard to tell. She loves being the Center of Attention...good or bad. So, I guess only time will tell. I will just keep covering her and Patrick and My Hubby in Prayer!

Judy...You Just Get Right Up There ON that Soap Box of Yours...and tell IT like it is!! I'm ready to join you. LOL I can see you with those hands on your hips and steam coming out your ears... but hey, somebody has got to do it...right?

Sabrina...I'm so sorry you feel lonely and left out. That can happen to a Social Butterfly quite easily.
When I moved to Vancouver 32 years ago...I knew absolutely no one except my husbands family. And for two years
I had no friends at all. Even at Church...we attended Mega Churches...we knew hardly anyone. In those 2 years
God became my BEST FRIEND! And that turned out to be the best two years of My Life! Eventually he lead us to a Church that had a Women's Bible Study Group that allowed non-members to join. And from there I grew to have many close friendships that have lasted almost 30 years and I have gone on to Teach many of these same women In My Bible Study Group. I share all that to say...snuggle up close to God and allow Him to draw you closer to Himself...and soon you will find that you are No Longer Lonely. He is Enough! And once you fully learn that He will bring others to meet the desires of your heart.

OK...I'm off to do dishes.

Love and Blessings,
Peggy

Happy Friday ladies,
It is another scorcher here 110 degrees and high humidity. I have been helping to care for animals. It has been a rather stressful few days. I had my yearly appointments and had good health. But got called back in today for second mammogram and it was clear but they did ultrasound to make sure. She was a compassionate dr who just wanted to make sure nothing was missed. It came back good but I tell you I was frightened. Yet God reminded me many times today in His words, music, devos, and prayers that He is bigger than any fear I lay at his feet. Needless to say I am relieved. I learned many lessons and one is to never take anything for granted. God is so good.

Ok I am off for ice tea and back to check our sweet animals.
Have a blessed weekend,
love and blessings,
TAmmy

Tea is like being in the stars with God.

Hi Ladies...it is HOT here too but NOT in the 3 digits...Praise God!!!

I didn't make it to Church today because my car is back in the Shop getting the Breaks fixed, again.
We took it to another shop...as the Break Shop we used for years...the guy is getting Old and
incompetent. He had it 3 times in his shop and never fixed the breaks. So...we had to pay someone else
$500.00 to fix what the other guy messed up or missed completely. I won't get my car until Monday.

Well, I looked up my Moms Blood Problem and the news really is NOT good. The main reason for your Bone
Marrow not making white or red blood cells is A Plastic Anemia. Or a slew of other problems all of which
are fatal. She has been in this state for over a year...so it must be a slow death. She will need to decide what she is willing to endure to fight this. I know what I would do...Nothing! But I can't make that decision for her. She said when she turned 80 that she didn't want to live to be 90 because she has out lived everyone
but me. Well, her wish just may come true...but I also know the will to live is very strong when one is
facing reality. So, please pray for her. I can't come and help her at all because of my husband and son's
situation and she literally has No one else. *deep sigh*. I am just praying she will listen to The Lord's
wisdom, guidance and that He will give her His Strength, Wisdom, Grace, and Peace. She is a Christ Follower...
so that gives me Great Comfort.

Teacher Tammy...I'm so happy that your test results all came out good! But from now on girl...Prayer Warriors...are a huge Blessing when things seem to be going South. I am also praising Papa God that
you learned some great lessons on TRUST etc. We love you, and we are here for you!!! Please know that!!
I am sorry you are having a scorcher bout of HEAT. The humidity is what does you in, huh? We are in
the 90's with humidity and wind...and it feels like you are smoothering when you go out of doors. It is
like a hot steamy towel hitting your face and taking your breath away.

OK...on to something else. I just took a couple of Migraine Pills...as I have had a stress headache for two
days. My husband was rude to our kids and grand kids yesterday at Barnes and Noble...and I won't even go there
as Judy Would have to get back up on her Soap Box and put her hands on her hips again. LOL

Stay Cool My Friends,
Peggy

I go to a hand specialist tomorrow for my finger. My doctor didn't like that the swelling hadn't gone down. I had to get x-rays to take along in the morning. I just want this stupid bandage off my finger. Writing and cross stitching is clumsy with my index finger.

More Prayers went up for ya Gals!
Got up to a nice, non-humid, 75, breezy n damp morning. We had a small thunder rumble go thru last night. Just enough to cool it down significantly. If Heather is getting this break, I'll bet she and her "cow-gals" are breathing in the relief.* giggle*
