Thank you for your prayers for my family. I talked to my neice yesterday and she didn't know anything yet and she sounded awful.
My nephew called my sister telling her he wanted my neice to drop charges. She won't, which I don't blame her. I have tried calling today but no answer, so will call later..I hope she doesn't have a fractured neck.

Bunny- the straw bales look really neat. Can't wait to see your pictures.

Patsy- And that does figure. Talk about a wild goose chase for those boots. But glad dh bought some in the end.

I'm finishing The Quilter's Apprentice by Jennifer Chiaverini. This is the second time I'm reading it. The first time I was hurrying through to get to the next book. This time I am taking my time. Well, that's what I tell myself but it IS a quick read. And very enjoyable. Yesterday was a frusterating day for me. So I went to the library and unloaded on the librarian. We're on our way to becoming friends and i just bleh. I need to also find a quilting,crocheting group. Something where I can get out by myself for a few hours. I can tell the end of the year is upon us because the girls and I are getting tired of schoolwork.
I'm babysitting a friends 20 month old for her and her husband. Sometimes I forgot how crazy I went with a little one around. I told hubby I need another baby gate.He laughs. She is really good. And I know her mom and dad appreciate it. I'm not charging them anything. I just want them to get caught up on their bills. They were laid off from October til February. And dad still isn't working full time. And mom just got a job about a month ago working at a restaurant. She has 2 other sons from a previous marriage. Her youngest son is 12 or 13 years old..Then this little one. I laugh. I have a headache that is trying to really take hold. i just may have to give in and take some ibuprophen. Take care and hope everyone is doing great.

Peggy- I'm soo sorry you have to move. I pray you find something. We've lived in a place we couldn't really afford too. Before we moved it it sounded like we could, but then bills coming in we weren't used to, yeah, it put us in the hole. But we accepted defeat and moved before we got evicted. Hopefully someday we'll have some property. I wouldn't care if it was a half acre. I'm sure we could do something with it.

Jan- I hope all is well with you and yours. And you'll be back enjoying the porch again.

I think I better go refill my glass. Oh we're having a turkey dinner tonight. Truth be known that's what was left to eat, tomorrow is payday.

Well, I'm still sick today, and it's raining outside, so I'm not getting much done. Just a little bit of laundry and a couple errands. Mike came home early with a headache too, so looks like we will be vegging on the couch for the night. I was going to go downtown for the Art Stroll tomorrow night and hand out "What's a Farmgirl?" Cards, but if I don't start feeling better, I won't be going anywhere!

Tomorrow evening the kids will be here for the weekend, so I'm gonna have to get better, even if I'm not better lol.

Janet - You mean you don't like my purple posts!?! Ok, ok...

Peggy, the snowball bush I have is white, but I have two blue hydrangeas in the back. (Is that what you meant about the other colored snowball bushes?) Well, last year they were blue and purple, and this year I don't really look for them to bloom at all, because they had leaf buds in the beginning of February with the warm weather, and then they got frostbite -- several times! I had to deadhead the leaves! I think this fall I'm going to try to send out soil samples so I can get some specific recommendations on what to add, but my dad said to take a couple old rusty nails and put them in the ground where the roots are, and they will go back to all blue.

Sorry to hear about you having to move; hopefully when you get settled in to your new place you will get some breathing room & peace of mind. Hope you find a place soon!

Cherime - What kind of floor did you put down? I want to see it too!

Angela - You are always in my thoughts and prayers. Maybe try to plan just a week or a couple days at a time to get back into the swing of things. How's your back?

Ruth - I've always heard "If you want something done, give it to the busiest person." Sounds like you're on a roll!

Debbie - I'm glad to hear from you. I know we've all been thinking about your family and sending up prayers for you all.

Sarah, It's not that I did not like the purple posts, I had a hard time seeing them. It takes me awhile to read on the computer even with the setting at 125%. If I put it any bigger, then I have to move the pages back and forth all the time. I hope you are not offended, I don't mean to be mean.

Janet and Sarah...I agree about the Purple. It is my all time favorite color with red my 2nd favorite but even though it is beautiful!...it was harder to read and the type seemed smaller. Your last post Sarah was so much kinder on the eyes! :+) Thank You! And don't worry about how long your post length is...we love to hear what you have to share!!!

Thanks Gals...for being so comforting and encouraging about our possible move. When we first moved in here...my husband was working full time and the first month was OK...but then out of left field, he decided he wanted to go down to 3 days per week but it ended up his boss would only give him 2. He has Social Security...and I am on Disability but when your house rent is almost what his Social Security is...that doesn't leave room for anything extra. Now he would go back to work full time in a heart-beat when he sees what it did to us...but his boss had filled his old position. So, he brought it all on himself...not crunching the numbers before he made the work move. I was the one that had to finally say..."Honey, we can't keep living like this...we need to get back into an apartment." Neither one of us wants to move again in just 6 months time...but hey you have to do what you have to do. Unfortunately...he does no help packing. I do it all! Which is OK...I'm use to it after 27 yrs of marriage. He is going to be 69 and I know he is sick of working so hard. I do have a young friend in her late 30's who is very willing to help me. I probably will have her just help me move boxes and stuff like that. I kind of pack a couple boxes here and there as the mood strikes me...could be 3:am, so it is a little hard to have some one help me pack. Plus with each move I like to get rid of more stuff...so, I pretty much have to do it myself.

Right now...unless an Apartment becomes available...we aren't going anywhere too soon. So, keep us in your prayers.

This crazy weather has me in pain today...can't even make it to bible study tonight. Had to have someone else teach for me.

blessings and hugs,
peggy

HI ladies,
It has been a busy week. So I thought the porch was the best place to sit and put my feet up for a bit with a pot of rose tea. Anyone care for a cup?

Today my little butterflies went to a petting zoo that my hubby had going on at his class in the high school. My sweet pup Jax got to go and boy did he love all that loving. He is tired today. Came home and plopped down in his spot. I had to chuckle at that.

Planted my herbs and looking forward to playing in the dirt a bit with them. I also have my strawberries and some flowers. I am not the best gardener, but I have found herbs are quite forgiving.

It is supposed to be very chilly here tomorrow. Hard for me to believe that after we hit 90 yesterday. Somehow 49 tomorrow doesn't seem fair when it is almost may.

well just wanted to check in and say hello.
love to you all
Tammy

Hey Porchies!

Debbie...Prayin for your family. Keep us updated. I went through some rough stuff with my oldest DD who my hubby adopted. She had to press charges on her biological father a year or so ago. It was hard and really seperated her from part of his family which really hurt her. She stood her ground and it made her a stronger woman for it.

Sarah...Take care of yourself and get feelin better. I'm doin really good with my back. It has barely even twinged. The lump is back, but it doesn't hurt and isn't effectin my leg or anything. The dr isn't sure what's happenin, but he says without more symptoms he isn't worried about it. I'm watchin to be sure it doesn't grow or change. So far, so good!

Peggy...I hate that you have to move. Believe me I feel for you. Take it slow and take care of yourself.

Tammy...I'm tryin herbs this year. I've always gotten mine at farmer's markets or foraged for them. I just love playin in the dirt!

I've been fairly busy today. I decided to completely catch up my laundry, which I've only been playin around at for weeks now. I had 8 loads! Then I decided to pick up the whole house in between loads, so it looks much better. I only have 1 box left to unpack from the last load, then it's time to go refill the empties in the truck. I gotta say, it's not much better movin slowly. I'm constantly frustrated because something I need isn't here yet. I'll get it all here soon though.

My little 4x4 raised bed is almost all sprouted now. I have all my pots planted and am anxiously waitin for something to harvest. I am just gettin started on my comgar. I went to start last weekend, bein the first good weekend we had free, but had to come home without startin. Someone had already tilled and begun plantin my spot! I called and called the comgar leader. When he finally called me back it was 7:30 sunday night. So way too late to head out there. I've gotten my new spot roped off and have put some tomato cages out in it, just to lay claim to it visibly.

I had to patch up hubby's shoulder tonight. He's had a lump under the skin about the size of a quarter and very hard for months now. In the last week it has developed a head and turned dark red. He scratched at it at work today and the head opened and began really seepin. It was definitely some sort of infection. He got it drained when he got home, but is left with a sunken spot with a deep hole in it. I put some antibiotic cream on it and patched it. I'm still a little worried about it, but he says it doesn't hurt and it isn't hot to the touch. I told him if it starts actin up any at all he's goin to see the doc, no arguments. He agreed. Like he really has a choice. Lol!

I have managed to get a basic weekly plan laid out to keep up on the house. It actually came from an old weekly schedule my DD found in one of her boxes of stuff. I got through the first month's menu plan with help from all of my girls and my mom. They all had lots of requests and suggestion of what they'd like to eat. We are workin on a list of foods we like, split up into catagories or types. That way I have some reference sheets to work from. I just need to get the budget finalized and I think I've got it under control.

I did leave tuesday open from chores for me to have a day for bakin or playin or whatever. I didn't plan the weekend either, so we can be free for family things. I'm plannin on bakin somethin yummy this tuesday with my special cinnamon, which I have yet to try. I can hardly wait! I'm thinkin the first thing should just be cinny rolls. One of my absolute favorite things on earth!

Angela- be careful with that bump..Sounds like my dh's MRSA..Only his hurt and then in the middle when the core came out it was a deep hole. He finally went to the dr's when he got 2 more on his knees. He took antibiotics. i got some boil cream,Pine sol,self sticking bandages because of the weeping..And dial antibacterial soap. my hubby has always been in construction and NEVER got MRSA..Then when he was security at a casino he got MRSA...Darndest thing..He still washes with the antibacterial soap once every 2 weeks. and he hasn't had an outbreak in almost 2 years now..He should get it checked out tho. Cinnamon rolls sounds really good. Hmmm wonder if I have the fixins for it.

Hello ladies. This morning was chilly. Temp was 33 when I left the house. It' supposed to be in the 50's today and possible SNOW flakes tomorrow. Crazy crazy weather.

Went out to the garden beds while watching the dogs do their business yesterday and noticed a lacy plant overtaking the end of one of the beds already. I haven't planted anything or worked the beds yet so I wasn't sure what it could be. Picked some and smelled it. DILL!! I hadn't even thought about it seeding itself last year. I love surprises and it's a good one since I have very little to spend on planting the garden this year.

Decided it was doggie pedicure time so all 3 got their pads trimmed and nails ground down last night. It's a fairly big project with 3 dogs and takes about an hour to accomplish. Thankfully they don't mind it so I don't have to fight them to do it.

The pork chops I got out for supper last night weren't even remotely thawed so change of plans occurred and I whipped up some spaghetti. The man ran down to get some sauce even though I wanted to make some homemade marinara so I just doctored up the jar sauce to my taste and added the hamburger he got to go in it and served with some wine :O) He's making the chops tonight since he took the day off so it should be interesting to see what he comes up with. He's a good cook so it should be quite yummy.

After supper and loaded with all those carbs I curled up on the couch and pulled out the sock I'm knitting for him and worked on that while we watched the gator hunting show. I'd started the sock before Christmas and then got side tracked by the items I agreed to knit. After looking at the sock recently I decided I didn't like the pattern at all and pulled the whole thing out and started over again with a pattern I do like.

I actually got to drive the Jeep to work yesterday for the first time!!! All total we've put another $1000 into it this week. Yes, I could have gotten another new to me vehicle with what we've head to dump into this one to get it running. The transmission computer was dead and had to be replaced. The mechanic was amazed we'd been able to drive it. He said in all the years he's done transmissions he's never seen one with that dead code still driving, it's being towed in. I keep telling myself it could have been worse, we could have needed a whole new transmission. This baby better last me for years to come is all I have to say.

PeggyAnn - so sorry you have to move again. Hopefully you'll find something that will work better financial for you. Please have your friend help you. No need in injurying yourself packing and moving boxes. Wish I was closer so I could help you.

Bunny - I won't be able to mail your package until next Friday when I get paid again. Hopefully you'll like the package enough you won't be upset with me over the delay.

Angela - I think weekly plans help out greatly. I don't follow one to a letter but have goals I try to accomplish. I also do a weekly menu plan and find it helps out so much. You know exactly what you need to buy and don't buy things you don't need that week unless you're stocking up on sale items. Wow, the infection of your husband's sounds bad. Could it have been a carbuncle. I've had those. They take forever to come to a head and they leave craters behind until they heal. Burt's Bees has a salve that works great called ResQ. You can typically find it in a little tin in the Burt's Bees displays. I find it draws the infection out like nothing else.

Well I should get back to work. It's been a busy morning and I've got an office with quite a few people in it after being totally alone most of the week - it's sort of nice even though they are a noisy group lol. Take care everybody!

Lynette...the owner of the yarn store is right. Knitting doesn't bother me as much as crocheting does. There is more circular wrist action with crocheting unless you crochet over handed. I crochet under-handed which is more of the old fashion way, so I hear.
You should go into her shop on Wednesdays, I bet she has a knitting group that meets then. Those kind of groups are so much fun. I have one that goes on every summer and we have the best time together.
Can't wait to see your Apron! I don't sew (except by hand) so, I love to see everyones sewing projects.

RSF Tammy...Ok, I am coming to your house for Pork Chops! I am so hungry for some. My husband isn't a pork eater...but I do buy myself some once in awhile. I love Pork ribs, pork chops, pork steak and pork roast. OK...now, you made me hungry!

Angela...I agree, do not mess with those lumps you and your hubby have. Especially your husbands. That does sound like MRSA to me too. That is nothing to ignore or mess around with.

Patsy...got your cute little paper tea-cup and tea today. Thanks so much!

Debbie...the book The Quilters Apprentice sounds good. I will have to check that out. Not that I don't have enough to read at the moment...but I am always loving recommendations on good reads.

Jan...like I said in my email, we will miss you and hope that you won't have to stay away long.
Our blessings and prayers go with you.

Well, hubby and I went to look at some more Apts today. Kind of depressing. The ones I like go for what we are renting for right now which is $950.
The more affordable ones down in the $750. are all 15 to 20 year old units. No modern up-grades at all. I don't need fancy...I can make any place a home but a little newer (or atleast renovated) would be better since my husband swears this WILL BE OUR LAST MOVE! I'm pretty sure he is serious! LOL
I always say, "Never, say Never!"
Keep us in your prayers girls!

love and hugs,
peggy

Jan, I certainly understand having too much going on. Summer in Alaska if go til you drop time because we have so little time to get stuff done. Went out and cut up a bit more to the stove wood to usable lengths today. Pacing myself and stacking what I cut. Then I quit before I push it too far.
Peg, that is a real problem these days with so many people having to rent after having lost their homes.
Sarah, below is a photo of the floor. I took OSB, oriented strand board and sanded off all the printing on them cut them in half, stained them and put polyurethane, the heavy duty bar kind on them and installed them with a thin strip of darker stained wood between the strips. It is holding up really well and is easy to clean. I made the shelves of heavy plywood and pre made legs the bottom ones 16" high with two layers of 8" legs add up to the right height kitchen counter for me. The legs cannot move out of position as the are drilled and large finishing nails pin them into the bottom shelf. The big drawer beneath the sink holds pot lids and cleaning supplies and slides fully out on large casters and the front two lock to keep it in place. I have two oak rub rails on either side so that the drawer slides in easily.

Peggy have you checked Craigslist? I checked it out and saw lots of places in Vancouver for under $850.00 a month. Small pets allowed.

Yeah, we did look at one off of Craig's List today, very close to where we live. It was advertised as a two bedroom, 1 bath, small dog for $795. just under 1,000 square feet. When we got there...it wasn't going to be available until the end of May. It was on the 3rd floor, and was really only 1 and 1/2 bedrooms. She said the second bedrooms were so small you would have to use them for a sewing room or small office. The Pet deposit was 350.00 and you had to pay pet rent of $20.00 per month on top of that. Non of it worked for us. We looked at two other places today...but will check more out another day. I only have the energy to do a couple per day.
We do use Craigs list alot. But thanks for being vigelent on my behalf.

My son and husband actually work for a Property Management Co. That is how we got this house. We looked at one of their Apartment Units today...brand new, gorgeous...I would have moved in...in a heart beat but the Owner just upped the rents because she only has 3 units left. She had them fairly reasonable I guess when she first wanted renters in her new place...but now she has to make up the difference by raising higher rents to off-set the lower ones. Oh, well wasn't meant to be.

Hey Cherime...want to come build us a house? LOL You are Miss Handy Dandy I swear girl!!!!

Just got done babysitting my gran-dog again tonight. Those boys are so cute!!!!

OK...off to bed to finish a great read. It is called The Camel Club by David Baldauci (sp). A real government, CIA, Special Ops Thriller.

Night Ladies...Sweet Dreams,
Peggy

Peg, I am having enough trouble getting this one whipped into shape. ;>) And unfortunately I need a new roof over my portion of the house this summer. It is in the shade and I now have tons of moss after this last winter. You wouldn't think the stuff would grow under the snow but it does.
Praying for a place for you.
Broke down and got a IPhone but have to keep most of the services off. I need to be able to take credit cards for bazaars and my phone co. had a deal I couldn't say no to. They had some IPhone 4's hanging around that did not talk to you and with the 2 yr contract they were only $50. Now on the hunt to determine which card swipe service to go with. Today's thing to get done.
Blessings ladies.

Bunny, I went with square because they do not do a credit check on you and Intuit does. After filing bankruptcy when DH passed, I probably would not pass Intuit's credit check. I will let you know how this pans out. I googled square v intuit and got Business Weekly and a comparison of the two. That's how I found about the credit check bit.

Netty...cute and so adorable apron. You do look like you worked up a sweat tho!!! LOL

Cherime...can't you just spray a moss remover on your roof?? We Get moss all the time here.
And we spray our Patios and roofs, everything not growing to get it off. I will have to
take a picture of one of my moss covered azaleas. It's so sad!

Bunny...good luck on the business credit card slider. How are your aprons coming along?

Well, did some much needed house work today...now, I guess I should go get me cleaned up.

Thanks Ruthie. Intuit is a bit sticker about stuff. They do a lot of business with high powered companies and they use a bit higher standard. I know what you mean because my ex did the same thing.
Peg. I would look into it but I know that the roof if old enough to need redoing. Dont like it but....I will keep that in mind to keep the moss off it in the future.

hello ladies,
Just got home from church. Contemporary choir sang that I am involved in. Sing again tomorrow for morning service.

Patsy going to be putting your gift together in the next few days. I am having a hard time deciding on a few things.

Peggy I hope you find a place soon. I am so sorry you have to move. But I know God will find you just the right place.

We had a big storm here yesterday. Tore shingles off the roof, shredded my wishing well and uprooted my herbs. So back to the garden center for more herbs and hubby said we will have to get a new roof. Looks like we may see bout siding too. But for sure have to get new roof.

My knitting teacher backed out of our lesson. so my mom is going to teach me crochet and I will keep looking for a knitting teacher. I am going to have to learn right handed becasue no one wants to teach me as a leftie. Should be interesting since I am very left handed person but I will rise to the challenge.

Time for my bible lesson. I am meeting with a new group of ladies this week. It was an answer to prayer. I have been so spirtually dry lately and my current group is not meeting much. So I am stepping out of my comfort zone and meeting with some new friends.

well off to tea and study and read a few pages from my book.
love to you all
Tammy

Evening Porchies.
Just wanted to stop by and say Hi! . Very tired tonight as I've been cleaning out my closet and in my room. I took out 8 brown paper sacks,3 large shopping bags of stuff. 2 large bags of trash. Instead of hubby saying wow your downsizing he complains that too much stuff is being taken out. Im ready to scream. What does he want? I had 5 things left after cleaning out my closet. It's not like my closet is empty now. A friend just lost alot of weight and gave me a whole new wardrobe. After putting all my new /used clothes in the closet it's filled to the gills again. With all clothes that I will wear as they are new and nice. One thing I dislike is winter clothes. They take up too much space.

Netty, love, love, love your apron! Love anything with chickens too.
Your house is looking great, Cherime! You're really doing the extra taking of details!
Tammy, I still swear by You-Tube for learning to knit. Even left handed. I can just keep starting, stopping, repeat until I get the stitch. I admire your tenacity though.
Plan to do another batch of violet jelly today. Ran out of steam yesterday. But the sun is shining today..that helps a little. SIL gave me starter for Friendship Bread. Wish you all were closer so I could share it.
Patsy, I received your cup o tea yesterday! What a cute little cup..and I've always loved the smell of Constant Comment. Reminds me of my younger days and tea with girlfriends who have moved far away.
I've been thinking of any Farmgirls living in the St. Louis area. Hope you all are safe!
