We're having a little cooler spell today but back into triple digits after this week. Still smokey. I found gardening isn't always good for you. Two days ago was picking a nice big bunch of chard for dinner and my back went out so I am horizontal for a while. This makes using the laptop a challenge so I may not be here much until I'm better.

Hi all,

Been hiding from 90s here. Do garden stuff in morning or late evening. Tomatoes are just coming in for me as I started late. Green beans are done.

Calendula, Zinnias, Bachelor Buttons and 4 O'Clocks are all going to seed and that's what I'm doing, collecting it. Asters are just now blooming so

pretty. So humid out there.. U G H !

Thunderstorms moved in tonight so glad I got what I could for now.

Going to pull my Fall deorations out too! I NEED to do something fun. It always cheers me up to see it out.

Take care of yourselves. Hugs & Prayers for all who need and want them..

D, we did get the a.c. replaced. It took them all day. They had to take a lot apart to get to every thing. And of course put it all back together. Fortunately they were able to use the same piping so didn't have to tear into the wall. Working great and now we have been having cooler temperatures. Im fine with that. Today and tomorrow are still to warm up again though.
Sorry to hear about your mower. We've a John Deere and so far it's been good we've had it a very long time. In the beginning it seemed we were replacing belts on it every year but now it's been good.
Not much going on here. I been working on finishing up my grandson's quilt and some small hand stitching projects.

Hello My Porchies...

I see that my last post didn't make it! I am terribly tired! They are painting our Apartment Building and so can't use my portable A/C Unit. Hopefully by tomorrow
night I can stick it back in the window. Right now we are in the mid 90's and so it is Hot! Suppose to get hotter over the next week and a half. I'm ready to so be
done with all their fixing stuff up...that turns out to be just as much work for the Residents. This has been a beast of a year...but God is Faithful to get us through.

Once they are done...then back to putting my Porch back together and my flower beds. I have thrown away some stuff that has gotten old and dingy after 9
years but I still put a lot on my Porch! I make it an outdoor/indoor space if you know what I mean! I think we will have a late fall here weather wise so I would
like to use my Porch for the next month and a half anyway...as I could not enjoy it all Summer long.

I am still trying to figure out how I wish to do on-line Bible Study this Fall and Spring. And yet I just keep pushing it off because of all this other stuff I am doing.
My hubby hasn't been too well lately either which keeps me hopping. I am getting to be with my youngest son and family one night a week and on one of the
weekend days...so, I'm thrilled about that. That way I don't feel so closed off as I was there for about 4 months.

Hope you all have a Splendid Labor Day Weekend! And find something fun to do!!

Love, Hugs and Joy,
Peggy

Do you have any fun plans for this Labor Day weekend?† We are planning an exciting trip to the front porch for a gourmet tasting party of some fresh squeezed lemonade.† Neither one of us has to serve as "designated driver" so we might even spot it with a wee bit of Tito's vodka.† But then I will have to operate some heavy equipment (electric stove) later in the day - so maybe not.†I'm planning to serve some delightful zucchini appetizers to accompany the libations . . . results of my research for a book I'm writing -- "50 Ways to Serve All That D$%^&* Squash". . . . or, "Wouldn't One Plant Have Been Enough?" Our guest list includes Thelma and Louise (kitties) as well as Rusty and Abbey (doggies). Should be quite an event. Looking in on us from the front field will be Vannah White, Norman and Ms. Piggy (goats), Tess and friends (summer boarders who are from the Bovine family), and our flock of chickens led by Ginger the escape artist.† I have to go now and decide what to wear for the gathering. . . . formal black tie attire???† Nah . . . shorts and flip flops will do . . .†† †Happy end of summer hurrah . . .†† †jean

Oh Jean! Lol!
We were going to take it easy but our water pipes have different ideas. Leaking from the upstairs bathroom vanity. So we are replacing pipes flooring and ceiling. So much fun ahead.

Hello Porchies!

I've been on a facebook break. Got so tired of all the nonsense. Then I decided to take it a bit further and really limit my internet use. I really need to check in here more often though. I miss everyone!

Hubby is in terrible pain. His back is killing him. It's not in the usual place where he has an old injury. Plus he didn't do anything to tweak it. I'm thinking it might be shingles without the rash. He has a stye and lots of irritation in his eye. Glad there is a clinic open today. I got him an appointment at 3pm. Prayers that it's an easy fix. I've never seen him like this before. The pain is making him nauseated.

Glad for some cooler weather. Might be campfire season soon! Can't wait.

Oh, and I was so excited to see my comment was printed in the latest MJF magazine! Yay me. :D

Jean, your Labor Day sounds like my kind of holiday!
Deb, I had shingles with very little rash, and HORRIBLE internal pain. Also, gastro upsets. It was not fun. If you can get to the doc soon, there are some meds that take the edge off, but have to be administered soon after the onset of symptoms.
Don't do facebook. Looks like a waste of time to me.

Deb,
Sorry to hear about the back pain. Hope they were able to help him.

I don't get on Facebook to often. Just to see if there is anything going on with my kids and grands.

Thanks all! He's doing better. Dr. doesn't think it's shingles but we are to check for a rash that may develop. Just in case. Dr. thinks it was muscle spasms. Gave him a cortisone shot and some muscle relaxers. He's only had to take 1 muscle relaxer and slept without taking 1 so I'm guessing the shot worked.

It is such a lovely day today. Spent some time on my porch enjoying the cool breeze.

Deb - Great news. Here's hoping he continues to feel better. Denise - You're having a 'D' year. If it's not 5 things - it's another :) Peggy - hope you got to spend some quality time with the family!

My weekend was therapeutic?? My wrist said I did 18 miles of walking chores, plus 12 hours on the tractor. I am thrilled to be sitting at my desk today. And still have fall decorating to do this week (still looking forward to it!)


The month of Kevin has started - It will all get better.

Not sure the best place to post this . . . but while we're sitting on the porch chatting, I want to tell you about a fabo gift idea. After all Christmas is just around the corner now. And, this one you can easily "do" sitting right where you are now (in front of the computer LOL). Check out http://www.bookbyyou.com/ . A girlfriend gave me one a few years back -- she somehow knew my high school boyfriend's name (from 100 year's ago) and used it. I can't tell you what a fun read it was. Now if you have any school-age kids on your gift list who complain about reading, fear not. They will devour a book in which they are the star character. Many fun topics to choose from. Let me know what you think. Everyone I've ever given one to adores it.

Hi my sweet Porchies, not sure where I have been but I just saw this thread, yet another fun way to keep up with each other.
Enjoying life in our new city and state of Coos Bay, Oregon. We been here two months and I just Love living on the coast and being so close to the Ocean.
We started getting a bit of rain last night and this morning, it feels great! I just hope where all our numerous fires are that there is a lot more rain to help our weary firefighters to get these suckers under control. I send them much love and prayers.
Everyone enjoy your day and please stay well and safe,

Big Hugs,
Debbie

Glad to hear you got some rain Debbie.
Praying for rain where those fires are now.

I haven't visited the porch lately.

It has been cooling down here and I am gearing up for full Fall mode. Looking to get my apples and make apple butter and applesauce to put up and put away.

Working on some Christmas gifts

Hello everyone! I have found you all again! I use to be on the old across the fence quite a few years ago. Peggy, Iím sure you remember me.
Iím still in The Dalles oregon. Sigh...
My oldest moved to the Seattle area and is looking to buy a house for us.
I took a full time job a few years ago and couldnít keep up with posts. I just retired and miss this terribly.

So....Hello everyone.

Hi Judith,
Yes it has been a long time. I really miss having normal people to talk to. My sister moved in about 5 years ago with my mom and I and is a malignant Narcissist. Itís pretty toxic around here most days. Going to work was my safe place.
It will be nice to connect with everyone again.
It has been really smoky here with the fires. We are safe and today is the first day it has t been bad. We got rain last night and some wind.
I miss blue sky.

Welcome back Bunny! I remember when you were here before. Good to see you again. I'm sorry you have to deal with toxicity in your life. Glad to hear you got rain. Still praying for the west coast to get rain to put all the fires out. Look forward to seeing you here. This is a good place to get encouragement each day.

Hello everyone been a while since I came to the porch. School resumed for me and has been quite busy. So far it has gone well. I pray next year I won't have to be co-head teacher which is like principal I have almost quit but God reminds me it is about his purpose not mine. On Labor Day I tripped over my beloved golden retriever and broke my ankle and sprained the other one. I had ankle surgery a week ago they put a rod and screw in it. I have a scooter at school and crutches. It is going to be six to eight weeks for healing and then 4 to 6 weeks of physical therapy. If anything God is teaching my independent spirit patience and how to a,low others to help me.

Peggy my group is back together for bible study but Beth Moore has a study on Galatians that is online. I am doing that on my own, if you go to living proof there is info on it. Might work for your group.

Hope everyone is doing well. I think I will sit on the porch for a while. Since my wings have been temporarily clipped. #128513;
Love and blessings

Good morning everyone. I saw sunshine e this morning for the first time in I donít know how long. We really take it for granted sometimes. Itís back behind rain clouds now. I hope for rain. But we get faked out all the time because of where we live. But nice to see real sky instead of brown.

Tammy so sorry about the broken bones! And yes, asking for help can be hard.

Denise, nice to see you hear too! I canít wait to get back into a happy habit of being here regularly.
