Tammy, I agree with your butterflies. It's time for a beach. I am really tired of the cold. I imagine they are really tired of being cooped up all the time.

Hi all,

So glad you decided to stay Peggy. I love reading your stuff. Your wit and humor would be sorely missed! I never go anywhere else on MJF either. This is it. You all have such interesting lives and we have all shared so much. We are like "family". When one goes missing for awhile, we all wonder about them till they show up again.

I've decided to give chickens a try. Got 3 Golden Laced Wyandottes and 3 Barred Rocks. Love big, brown eggs, so we shall see. They are in a huge plastic tub with a light for warmth. Love to hear their peeping. Google these breeds if you want to see what they look like as adults.

After this wind passes through tonight, we will have 2 days of rain. yippee skippy.. Temps have been 80 last 2 days. The weather has been crazy. Up..Down..Up..Down.. We are all ready for nice weather..

It's 35 and snowing in the air. Snow showers for all afternoon. Very gusty 30 to 40 mph winds. Had to bring in my petunias.. poor things have droopy petals and leaves.

Oh ya.. we have freeze warnings out. There goes my apple tree blooms.

Excuse my while I go nest on the couch till summer!

We are all hanging onto snowsqualls, it seems. We are also having winds, 40 and snow today. Just spitting snow so far but tonight and tomorrow, there may be an inch or two, Wait and see, right? That wind is sharp. We went out for lunch and now I can't get warm!!!
More layers please... and HOT beverages!

We had a lot of rain over night and temps have dropped into the 50's from the 70's and 80's. Guess Mother Nature had another temper tantrum. Be glad when she has hot flashes. My poor cold doesn't have a chance.

Hi My Porchies...

Just hopping on to let you know that my mom went to the Hospital last
Wensday for a blood Transfussion... she sounded much better that night
But Thursday Morning she went into a Coma and The Dr. told me to get to
Spokane as quickly as I could! So, hubby and I drove the 6 hrs there! And
By Fri at 1:55 She went home to Jesus and my Dad! My youngest son and
Family drove up the next day to help me and hubby went home on Sunday!
Today Shane and I started the Legal Stuff! So far it is going much easier than my
Auntís Legal Proceedings went!! The hardest part will be cleaning out 55?yrs of
Life in this one house!...so I can put it up for sale! It needs a New Roof and updating
On the inside! So, we shall see! I am staying through next weekend and then my kids will
Come back and take me home! we will be back and forth all Summer most likely! Prayers
Will be appreciated!!

Love and Hugs,
Peggy

Oh Peggy, I'm so sorry to hear that... and yet... we knew it was coming from all you've told us! Such a cantankerous old gal... but, that was your mom's way!
Prayers and Love coming your way, Buddy!

Peggy I'm so sorry for your loss!!

I'm sorry I went MIA on y'all, life has been busy, mostly good busy but I let too many things creep in again. I'm working on clearing my plate again now. Someday maybe I'll learn.

I went to the OCC volunteer conference in Phoenix last weekend and it was absolutely amazing. My cup is filled and I feel like I have direction both in my position with OCC and in life in general. Granted I get home and things are chaotic again but I'm working on that and have a plan. The kids have just been requiring a ton of time and attention lately and I've been trying to stay off the computer most of the time when they are awake, so when they are asleep I'm trying to write, answer emails, do occ stuff, and do any online household stuff needed so it hasn't left me much time to pop in here. I haven't caught up on the thread yet because I only have a few minutes this evening but maybe sometime next week I can scan back through it.


I hope you are all doing well!

Sabrina, don't forget to take care of yourself while you take care of everyone else. Learn to use a two letter word once in a while (No).

Hello anyone out here on the porch,
Inquiring minds are looking for yall. Don't make my teacher wings come find yall!!!
Seems spring might have finally made it to my neck of the woods. It has been beautiful and made for happy little butterflies and teacher butterfly too.
We are coming down to the end of the year which hardly seems possible. Took my butterflies to our state capitol yesterday for their field trip. It was fun.

Anxious to plant flowers and be outside more. Spring is my favorite season. Well when it is actually here lol
hope all is well with yall left you some chocolate chip scones.
love and blessings,
Tammy

Field trips were always so much fun, when my kids were in school. I took my granddaughter to DC the other year. She enjoyed the Air Space Museum best just like her dad and aunt did when they were that age. I'm still not sure about spring yet. The old folk say not to plant until you hear the Whip-O-Will and I have yet to hear them.
