What delicious eye-candy Debra..to go with your morning coffee. Your flowers make a beautiful foreground to your
momma and baby deer in the yard. Oh...that we could all have such glorious mornings!

Hey Debra, Dallas would love a few 97 degree days.....we're on our 39th day of 100+ degree days with no end in sight. And what is that R A I N stuff? :) Wow Betty looks like you'll be 'off the streets' for a while! Patsy...should try the ATC swap...its so fun and a simple way to be creative. Trying to stay off the grid as much as possible...no 'puter every other day so we can avoid rolling brown-outs. Stay cool and safe all!! :)

My best to all,
Mel

Thanks I hope to be able to be in their lives as much as possible. They will be living up in Washington so I do hope to be there when they are born...
Have a good day.

Darlys, I think Walt Disney made a movie of Caddie woodlawn and I saw it that way. Cornbread & chili...yumyum!
Welcome to the group Eileen!
Marsha, I wanna kiss a warm, fuzzy foals nose. *giggle* Love your tagline!
Nancy, I don't understand burning your buns in the hot sun either, pool or no pool. They'll regret that later on when they are looking for wrinkle and agespot vanishing cream....or worse!
CJ, how is your sister doing these days? I enjoyed the "Farmgirlsontheloose" blog!
Debra, thanks for sharing those dear"Deer" pics with us. So sweet!
Mel, so sorry you have to endure that horrible heat. I thought a couple of days of it was bad. UGH!!
Well g-nite Gals!

Debra, the pictures of the deer are so lovely. Wish I was there to see them in person. We finally got about 25 minutes of rain yesterday evening. Maybe we will get some more today. Hope so. Mel, my heart goes out to you. I was watching those temps on the weather report last night on the news. How awful.
Darlene, How exciting to be a grandmother of twins. Great you can be close by for the birth, too. I was able to be close by for my daughter's girls as they were growing up and it was the best. I had so much fun with them.

Looks like a hot one again today but I that God as always for another glorious day.

Hugs,
Nancy

CJ...Welcome Home! Totally Loved The Farmgirls On The Loose Blog! Looks like you girls had a blast!!!
I was also happy to see that Sharon and her daughter Kim got to go and Karen. Awesome! They are all
from my Home Town area(Spokane & Cheney). ~ CJ you mentioned something about caring for your sister
can I be snoopy and ask what is wrong with her?

Mel...don't know how you guys are not just melting on to the Sidewalks. That is such extreme heat!

Darlene...my best friends daughter had triplets and they had a lot of help for the first 6 months...but they
were all really good babies. Now they are about 8 yrs old. I think twins would be a handful too but
maybe not quite so bad. I know as a Grandma that would just be double the loven! Enjoy every minute
of them.

Debra...any more visitors with your coffee this morning? My dogs got me up early this morning...when
I took them out it was very cool and refreshing out and the birds were singing their hears out.

Well girls ...will check back with you later!

blessings,
peggy

Good afternoon Gals. Hubby just left to go mow his Moms grass. We got up to a cool wind, 72, no humidity. I said to Rascal(cat)"I don't think we're in Oz anymore!" He looked at me admiringly(he loves his Mom) and said "Meow."...which is cat for, "ahhhhhh...I know, isn't it wonderful?" lol The whole rest of this week is suppose to be nice and cool. "Thank You Lord for this break!" Amen!
We picked peppers and maters last night. Gonna make salsa today.
Later Gals!

Darlys...that is knock-out Gorgeous! It is breath-takingly Beautiful. Maybe it's because it has my
favorite colors in it but I LOVE IT! Betty has nothing up on you...girlfriend...that is the awesome
part about loving a certain craft and having the skills to do it...is that each craft-artist brings
something uniquely her own to the table. YOU BOTH ARE FABULOUS QUILTERS. I am so impressed!

And you both should be so proud of your work! It is Stellar.

blessings,
peggy

Hi girls!
It's bittersweet to be back home. My daughter, Robin, and I were having SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much fun that we actually could have stayed out longer.

About my sister: things are the same, no improvement, no progress, just day-to-day we take it.
She suffered a very severe traumatic brain injury in a horseback riding accident in May 2006. Changed her life forever . . and that of the rest of our family.
She requires 24/7 care. I've been working as one of her caregivers for 3 years.

The Road Trip: was a TOTAL HOOT!!! We had more fun than I can describe and I'd happily do it all again!!! But I can't afford another one right now and my traveling companion and partner in crime . . my daughter . . . who is a teacher is back to work teaching 2nd graders. Soooooo, we'll have to wait!

Today I'm sewing more aprons for sale in our booth at Farmers Market . . . .gotta get back to it.
You girls stay outta trouble while I'm sewing . . :)

Hi CeeJay, I'm so sorry about your sisters accident. I cannot imagine what you and your whole family have been through. What a struggle! God Bless you and may the Lord shine down upon you and your family and comfort you in the days to come.

Darlys...what a beautiful quilt. You must be proud and it. Do you display it on your bed?

Darlys, that is one lovely quilt. WOW! I can't say I'm one up on you....that is great. My log cabin went to the quilters yesterday and it should be ready in a week for me to bind it and put on a label. We just got back from dinner. Today is our 19th wedding anniversary so we ate out at a local steak house. Now, after taking care of the chickens and feeding the dog I have to get ready to leave tomorrow for my daughters for two days to help her with the moving. Actually I'll watch the boys but that will be fun. I'll be back Saturday. Everyone have fun while I'm gone.

CJ...thanks for sharing about your Sister. I had no idea that you had such a personal drama going on in your life. It is awesome
how you and others shower her with your love by caring for her. I will remember you all in my prayers. Just goes to show that
even when we think we know someone...there are always difficult things going on in their lives that we are clueless about. I really
admire you CJ for all ytou do. You are an amazing example off Positive Farmgirl Spirit.

Betty...have fun with those grand-boys. And get some fun shopping in too. Be safe and hurry back to us. Oh, and Happy Anniversary!

Debr e ...sorry that your are melting in all the Heat. I would send you some of our cooler weather if I could. We do sell Washington
Rain in a Jar! lol

Nice day today. I took pictures of my small garden today...that looks more like a Large Jungle in a raised flower bed. lol

chat more with ya all tomorrow,
peggy

CJ,my prayers are with you for your sister and for you. You are an amazing, giving and loving farmgirl sister.
Darlys, that quilt is soooo beautiful! You can be very proud of it. The colors are so lovely.

Happy Anniversary Betty! Nineteen years, wonderful! Have a grand time.

Finally a litte cooler here yesterday. Still humid so maybe we will get some rain. Hope so. I got hungry for salsa and might make some myself since reading about Judy's. We have some tomatoes picked and my husband has grown some peppers, too.

Off to my day. Talk with you all tomorrow.

Thank you girls, for the prayers for my sis and my family. Her hubby took her to the ER last night with fever and BAD diarrhea (sorry!) and she has been admitted to hosp. The story since her accident is long, complicated and I won't get into it. It's just one thing on top of another . . .

DARLYS: that quilt is absolutely STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL!!!!! Some of my favorite colors!

PEGGY: I love the pics of your garden . . . thanks for posting!

Just got back from my power walk with my doggie friend, Bramble. Hauled about 200 lbs. of natural rock from over the hill along the road to MY house (I have rock gardens and use the stuff that "grows" here). Now, I must get back to sewing aprons to be ready for Farmers Market this Saturday.

Thanks for the kind, caring thoughts and prayers!

CJ...poor sister...such hard struggles. I have learned that what doesn't kill you builds strength of another kind.
I too took my power walk this morning with my Sotty Terrier and Shi-tzu. The Scotty who usually loves walks even
though he has those little short legs...was lagging behind the whole time and Bella my other dog who hates walks
was brisk and bouncy and really on the move. Go figure! I was in the middle of both of them. Just getting back
in to walking since last fall. Must get this weight off. I have one year to get off 35lbs before my youngest sons
wedding. Sounds easy enough but remember I am the girl who puts Chocolate on Chocolate. lol I want to lose this weight
but I am not giving up my Starbucks or my chocolate. Those are my only two addictions in life and I refuse to let them
go. You can't take ALL the fun out of life!

I have my crafting group tonight...so I will be sewing buttons onto YoYo's so I can get them mailed out for my swap.

Eileen...I know what you mean...the other day, I was thinking..."Good Grief I will be 60 in Oct. and I am a Grandma and Grandma's
are suppose to be fluffy. So, what's the big deal anyway!" But then on the other hand I know that if I want to be around for a
good long time to play with those Grands and watch them grow up...then I better take good care of my health. It is more and more
of a struggle because I have Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue and I am always in pain. Many days I hurt too much to walk...but I
just have to force myself to do it as much as I can.

blessings,
peggy
