to figure out what the universe God Angels who ever is in charge now has planned There must be a reason for all of this It is totally out of my hands that s for sure I just hate to put my son out he is the one that has to help with everything and he is trying to get his own life in order I m sure he will be a little glad I m out of his hair for a while at least I m putting my mind on this is for a good thing I m suppose to stay and wait for it whatever I m getting tired But it looks like I need to go back to dealing with one day at a time No more planning It just doesn t seem like it s quite the right time for it OK I m partially complaining and really trying to see the bright side I do pray for each and everyone one of you you all have your own stuff to deal with You ladies are wonderful

women I saw with shopping carts full of socks Wow I wouldn t even know that many people I hope they were buying them for Charities or something wonderful like that I had fun meandering around and getting into the Holiday Frenzy I mean spirit LOL I got about half of my list covered in that one store and then walked back home and went to bed Later my hubby and I went to a few more places It was a first for me doing BLACK Friday Now I can say I have contributed to our Nations Economy by spending money on this day Hope you all had a Stupendous Day and that the rest of your Holiday Weekend is

make sandwiches with the next day Pam I sure hope you get your heat problem resolved soon burrrrr I m glad you liked your Christmas pins Staci so good to see you back on the porch we missed you

cost me Next we need to stifle the big mouth boss Duct tape works well and they have it in colors now Staci Congrats farm girl of the month You Rock Girl Peggy My neighbor was doing that to his wife for awhile until they did some med changes Now he snores like a freight train so she wears earplugs Gotta love it Megan You ll be running away from all the boys in no time Hang in there Prayers coming your way Cherime is the BD girl this month How about doing our own homemade Christmas ornament swap We make the same ornament but just send it to a different person every month I will keep that straight for us By the end of the year we will all have the same ornaments for Our Porchie Christmas Tree We can start it in January or now if you want Making and sending 1 ornament a month won t break the bank either What do we say sisters I have been somewhat disappointed with some of the swaps outside the porch Some people don t respond to receiving the swap items or the swap itself I pretty much am done with the outside swaps except for the quilt blocks which are gorgeous I took myself off the RAOK list because I m not going to send things and not be told if they arrived I received beautiful things and acknowledge them Anyone else have similar issues It took me hours to make a Christmas stocking and still no word That s why I d rather do it for one of my Porch Sisters Which brings me to another swap idea We can make stockings homemade valentines Easter eggs and whatever We ll be the talk of the town won t we LOL Well payers to you all and blessings beyond measure

PeggyAnn Vancouver WA USA 5247 Posts Posted Dec 01 2010 12 29 39 AM Darlene love your Swap Ideas I don t do a Tree anymore other than a lighted Ceramic One with a Train that goes around it So I don t think I want to do an ornament a month myself but I loved the homemade swaps for each Holiday or one swap a month for something but let s keep it interesting Not repetitious like 12 Christmas ornaments unless we made a Friendship Tree where we each bought whatever kind of little tree we wanted that would stay up all year Like you see them do for Halloween or Easter and then we could do a different seasonal ornament for each month but it hangs on your tree all year long Are you getting my drift here Like maybe January could be a Snowman ornament Feb a Heart ornament March Something to do with Wind like a Kite ornament April maybe a Watering Can May a Flower June something Beach Related July Fourth of July related Aug something to do with Gardens anyway you get the idea What do you think about that Plus maybe Miss Pam could head up some kind of Embroidery Project that could even tie in with the ornaments or just a separate project all together I even like the idea of doing a silver heart charm bracelet with charms from all my Porchies That would be very special Those are just a few of my ideas Angela glad that you are doing better Just don t over do girl Your Porch Mother s worry about you I will be praying for hubby on that phone interview Tammy I am so sorry that you all came down with the Flu That wasn t a very Fun Birthday Present Megan praying for Peace of Mind

do something if they want 2 heads are better than 1 and for sure all of our heads must be fantastic I have one tree that has only homemade ornaments on it and it brings back so many memories I do a simple beaded cross that just brings it all back to the reason we celebrate Christmas That s why I thought if we each did the same ornament for everyone by next christmas we would be able to look at them and know that all of us had the same special ornaments as everyone else You know you will all get the cross from me LOL Keep on brainstorming girls Blessings and Peace Darlene Sister 1922 God

01 2010 09 17 50 AM Darlene you know me I love the beaded cross idea But couldn t that also work for a Friendship Tree or a Christmas Tree Maybe we should do which ever we want If you want to use your ornaments on your homemade ornament tree some others on their regular Christmas tree and some of us on our Friendship Trees that we will create that would all still work So if you want to head that up let s get started for December Would we each make a cross or just a Christmas Ornament I Have some Star Ornaments that I made left to give out to people So further explanation please as I haven t

things to sew or make and then realize most of the stuff is at my mom s I have an interview with a temp agency tomorrow Hopefully it will be at least something full time to help with my expenses of being stuck here I m realizing this time caught in between moving and not moving is giving me time to really evaluate what I need to do I m still not sure about where I m suppose to be but hopefully I ll get an answer while I wait P S I hate banks Chase in particular It is so sad to be reduced to a number investment statistic To them I m not a human being Just a file I keep thinking of Jesus and the money changers wish he was around to kick some bank butt right now Megan good luck with your surgery tomorrow I know you ll be fine

surgery always scares me so glad it went well Darlene and Angela thanks for the advice I talked to them a few days ago and told the in laws that if we didn t have kids I would give them whatever they needed but with things are going in the econcomy and world I have to put their security first and couldn t lend that kind of money We decided that once we know how much the well for the property is going to cost then we may be able to lend a smaller amount Thank goodness hubby feels the same way especially since it is the money my dad left us I feel really guilty for not helping but on the other hand when we were losing our house we never asked for any money and dealt with the problem ourselves I ve tried to tell myself that just giving money for the problem they are in isn t actually helping them in the long term But I told them that they always have a home with us if ever the need arises We will see what happens in the next week Stay warm and dry everyone Dana farmgirl 1432 He who throws

Posts Posted Dec 04 2010 09 05 29 AM Dana hard decision but the right one for your family It is YOUR money from your dad you should have all final say on what is done with it I am glad your hubby was in agreement but even if he wasn t it is your money Every family needs a little Nest Egg but if you let others guilt you out of that pretty quickly your Nest only has feathers in it to fall back on And I agree with Darlene family and loans usually are a heap of trouble If you want to help anyone then you just freely give them the money with no strings attached not a loan If you can t do that then don t give it I m proud of you for putting your OWN family first Marcia I would love some capaccino sp and watch the snow fall with you from the Porch We are getting cold and windy weather today

I could trade for a blueberry pie or some cookies We were accepted for some christmas assistance for our girls so we have 2 gifts for each of them and I m itchin to get them wrapped and in the livin room My mom gave us some extra lights they had so we can decorate the big 20 foot pine in our front yard It s somethin the girls have wanted to do for the last couple of years Even when this was just grammy and pops house they wanted to see that tree with lights on it This year we have the lights I just have to find the big extension cord My DH was diggin in the storage room for the christmas decorations last night and found a whole rubbermaid tub of brand new decorations We had both forgot about our weeks long search through the clearance racks last year to get matchin ornaments and some new stuff to put up in the house Someone stole our decorations just before christmas last year and we made paper chains and used anything we could find in the craft cabinet to put on the tree Our gift to each other last year was the new decorations in the colors we really wanted We went with blues and white with silver trim The only thing I don t have are the plastic twirlies for the front porch I loved those things They were just silly plastic strips that were twisted on little strings but they used to hang on my moms porch when I was little They haven t made those things since the 70 s I m gonna try to buy up the summertime kind in blues and whites next year and put them back for next christmas Mine were skinny 1 2 inch strips but the wider summertime ones are better than nothin I think I m gonna dig through the box and see what I can find to put up thats not goin on the tree I left coffee and some of the sample candy batches for everyone The chocolate covered craisins are a new thing this year Let me know what you girls think I was thinkin of addin them to my list permanently I love them Farmgirl Sister 1438 God Gardening Family Is anything else important Edited by natesgirl

feel like you do I don t even like being around myself I m terrible company even for a party of one But hang in there sweetie it won t last but for a season You are usually always so up and perky and encouraging Do you have any idea what has you down It sounds like you are on pure Overload with not enough YOU time If you don t give yourself time to refill you then there is nothing left to give to others either Big Hugs Girl Lida Yeah you are back So good to hear from you Oh I wish you could figure out how to get that picture posted on here of you and that little boy Would love to see that I can imagine that your trip is always a life changing experience I love that there are people like you who can take the Love of God to other Countries and let His Light Shine in their darkness But one thing that always amazes me is how much happier many poor people from third world countries are than we are here in the land of Prosperity Small and simple things bring them great pleasure Glad you are home on the Porch to share with us once again Monica So Happy that you were able to drop in too Oh You Wonderful Women are so missed when you are gone for periods of time But you do make the heart grow fonder And when you get to come back more often we are so delighted just to be in your presence Judy and Luanne it was kind of quiet for a few days on here wasn t it I just love it when it is busy and we have to move over and share space on the swings gliders rockers and everyone is talken up a storm at once it is just heaven on earth isn t it I know we all get busy this time of year but hey we all deserve a break once or twice a day Just 10 minutes on the Porch is like a little Mini Vacation It revives and refreshes the soul Staci you were very perceptive to notice how early I was on the Porch the other morning I have been in pain but it hasn t been intolerable but it is messing with my sleep something fierce We have been having a lot of rain fronts moving in and out I had to get up last night and take extra pain medication Hoping to be able to make it to my Bible Study Christmas Party tonight and then we break until after New Years Besides our yearly Retreat to the Oregon Coast this is our other really Special Event and nobody likes missing it for any reason It just makes Christmas Christ mas in our hearts and lives Theresa I made those Ritz Peanut Butter dipped Chocolate cookies yesterday to take tonight Gave my hubby and son a couple to try and man they were a hit I really liked them too I must have eaten 6 of them just testing them out you know My Bad Pam Where are you at Sweet girl Busy Busy Busy if I know you But take a break and come chat for a few minutes Megan how are the rehab exercises going Did you get all your Christmas Gifts finished that you were making Are your friends dropping by to hang out with you while you rehab I am still praying that you heal fast and completely With no residule problems when all is said and done OK Porchies can I vent a minute I think you ll remember my sharing about the Smoking Shack that they built right by my bed room window Well OK I don t like it at all but I have been trying to maintain a good attitude and not let it keep me worked up and fretting BUT my little dog Bella can t rationalize all this like I can Having all the extra foot traffic past our Apartment door everyday and having people right outside our window chatting and laughing is freaking her out So she is continually barking which I am working with her to calm down but for the last two weeks whenever I leave her I come back and she has done something destructive Like Scratching paint off the walls in two separate places or crashing through the barrier I put up to keep her in the back of the Apartment so she doesn t stand at the front door barking at everyone who passes by while I am gone Then last night my DH and I came back after a couple hours running errands and she had scratched a hole clear through the carpeting UGH She is three and I have had her since she was 7 weeks old She is not normally destructive I don t know what to do with her but she is going to destroy this Apartment I hate to have to Kennel her because she hates being caged up but I think I have no recourse but to do that Do any of you have any suggestions I also don t want to be kicked out of here because she is misbehaving albeit very badly My youngest son Manages another Property Management Company so I can get his people to come in and fix the walls and carpet for less than my Apartment company would but that is beside the point I need to fix her behavior Well better go I need to rest for awhile Christmas Blessings To All My Sweet Porchies peggy Farmgirl 1326 http ladyinredsite blogspot com http pegsmiles7 wordpress com http www

Trying to make lists to get me up and going every day I have decided to only stay until the first of the year I don t have the money to sit here any longer My realtor said the bank would make a decision on the offer within 3 weeks That was almost a week ago One good thing is the paper work they just sent me for the 6th time by the way Said they would pay me 3000 00 for moving expenses when the sale goes through I know they haven t had any other offers so I m really hoping they take this one Please say big prayers for me please release me Chase Bank Anyway my family plans on coming up for Christmas I m happy for that all my decorations are packed and in storage but I don t think anyone really cares They are just glad we get to spend it together It s all about chocolate and turkey around here We decided two years ago to stop giving presents Money was just too tight and that s not really what it s all about anyway We didn t seem to suffer for it Peggy and Darlene thank you so much for the Christmas Cards I realized I stopped sending them so many years ago because I stopped getting them from other people I know so many people don t do it anymore I really want to do the Christmas ornament swap I m just afraid with me in such limbo I don t want to flake on my month Is there a month after June that is available I should be settled by then and able to do something decent Angela I m sorry to hear about your Christmas issues But it looks like you have made the best of it It doesn t take much to get in the spirit One year my dad brought home a very homely little tree We called it the Charlie Brown tree and it was a tradition for years with our family Even when we had a nice big tree there was still the Charlie Brown tree to remind us that it doesn t take much Darlene I m glad your beagle is doing a little better I have been with sick animals before and it is so hard It s like a baby that can t tell you how they feel You were wonderful to stay with him I ll say prayers for all my sisters having a hard time I hope things get better soon So far I m hanging in there and ok Happy Christmas Wishes for Everyone Bunny www bunnyrose com knittinchick True Blue

him to the Dr and the doctor not only scolded him very harshly but then he pulls out this mega huge stapler and starts stapling his scull back together I thought I was going to pass out watching him But I guess having them removed was much easier than having them put in But by then his mother got to deal with that part I liked your Story too Do you know why Christian Crosses are different from Catholic Crucifixes Christian Crosses don t leave Jesus on the Cross because we know that he was buried and and rose again in Three Days from the grave and ascended back to Heaven So We Christians don t leave him on the cross but we wear the cross as a reminder of his death for our salvation Staci hope you enjoyed all that snow I love that we get a just enough snow here that we can enjoy it for about a week maybe two at the most and then it is gone I lived in snow too many years where it could be on the ground for 5 months out of the year Too much Winter Wonderland for my liking We are getting record rain this weekend Starting to have flooding in various areas That isn t great fun either but it goes away faster than the snow Darlene can t wait to see the lovelies that you made for us on the ornament exchange Come on gals we need more of you to participate to make this really happen It doesn t have to be a complex ornament You are all so talented I know you can come up with something fun for everyone and easy on yourself So come make it an even 12 month sign up You will be glad that you did Darlen Darlene I am so sorry that your husband says such ugly stuff to you and threatens to do mean things just out of spite and orneriness Some men are such Control Freaks it gives them a feeling of power over their women But really it is their own sense of insecurities manifesting themselves in a horrible way I am always reminded of the story of King David Abigail and Nabal in 1 Samuel 25 Abigail put up with a lot from a very stubborn pig headed man her husband Nabal but she was a wise and godly woman and God blessed her in the end for her faithfulness and tenacity in the midst of such awful adversity My prayer is that you will be richly blessed also Tonight I went and bought a new dog kennel for my Bella As I came home last night and found a matching hole in my carpet Pam gave me the name of an all natural tincture that I am going to try on her also to calm her down when we leave Well I am ready to go read and wind down from a rather stressful day I have had to take extra medication to calm myself down over my dog situation I love everything in my home nice and neat and pretty so this thing with my dog is pushing me to the edge I love her to pieces but did consider strongly today whether I could live without her or not but every time I looked at her sweet face and eyes and she has the sweetest personality there is no way I can get rid of her It was like considering giving away one of your children because they behaved badly a couple of days out of their little lives I DON T THINK SO Goodnight my wonderful friends what would we do without each other I don t ever want to find out either Christmas Blessings peggy Farmgirl 1326 http

this That s a great idea to put it in her water I use to do that for myself when I worked at the crisis line It kept me mellow through the whole day yep it works for people too Can they put a note up somewhere if they haven t already saying something about the noise level What jerks I hope you are doing better today I m thinking about you sweetie Today has been a little trying in the dog department for us too Pete snipped at one of my friends He has never done that He barks but never bites Then he was chasing a squirrel in our backyard and fell into the pond It was a good thing I was out there because otherwise I m not sure he would make it We have rocks around the pond so he couldn t get out He was wet cold and stinky We gave him a bath It s a good thing that dog is cute I m almost finished baking I made marshmallows today They are so cool I didn t make the gumdrops because of the Pete incident maybe tomorrow www fasterkittykill blogspot com LadyInRed True Blue Farmgirl 5247 Posts PeggyAnn Vancouver WA USA 5247 Posts Posted Dec 12 2010 5 27 13 PM OK had to jump back on for a minute Tammy So glad that you are feeling a little more UP And your story about the child and Jesus was heart touching I knew you would understand how God speaks to me through children because anyone who calls her class of kids her Butterflies has a deep and keen appreciation for how special they are And God speaks to the hearts of adults through them continually You have to just be attuned to it And I know you are Theresa good to have you back on the Porch Yes those cookies were such a hit I made some more for my hubby to take in to work tomorrow Thanks for signing up for the Swap also Pam Oh my your poor baby could have drowned I am so glad that you were out there to rescue him They really are just like raising children In fact I tell all newly married couples who think they want kids right away to get a dog first It will give them a good idea what having a baby will be like Breaks them in a little more gently and gradually for children lol I have never made home made marshmallows but I think they look beautiful and I hear they taste way better than what you would get in the store Never made gumdrops either Sounds good though Do you do a lot of different flavors Does Mark like to cook too Or just eat the goodies OK off to my book Blessings peggy Farmgirl 1326 http

day when all is well Well all isn t well but it is still a perfect day I had a planned vacation day today intended to clean bake and make a Christmas stocking for my granddaughter Those were my intentions Instead I spent the morning cuddling a sick 8 month old granddaughter while her mom and dad worked How perfect that I was available when they needed me She sat on my hip and watched while I made a batch of cookies then started to fuss a bit I lit the fireplace gas put on a jazz Christmas CD and gently danced her to sleep Then I stood looking out my front window at the snow swirling around and holding her while she had a cuddly much needed nap Like I said a perfect day A baby to cuddle the smell of cookies baking the fireplace burning and Christmas music in the background I hope that I am not biting off more than I can chew but sign me up for the ornament exchange I would like May please Simple is okay right Peggy What does the complex management say about the smoking shack concerns can they move it to outside the office location Tammy It is cold here too 14 degrees and snowing Chili sounds great I have a pot of stroganoff simmering Your little butterfly Christmas story

your family What wonderful hhospitality you are showing I like snow too I have not been able to get out cross country skiing yet but I will soon Chermine oh my 50 degrees I remember in my childhood that sometimes it would get to 40 in northern New York I hated going out to do barn chores when it was that cold My dad kept warm when outside doing chores by scooping up a cat and putting it around his neck and another one zipped into his coveralls He loved cats Waving hello to Teresa Nice to see you here Pam Can you share your marshmallow recipe Another Guatemala story I met this wonderful family The young father is Nelvin his young wife is Gabby and their 1 1 2 year old daughter is Bitttany Motorcycles are a popular form of transportation there Helmets are not popular In September 20 year old Nelvin was in a motorcycle accident and suffered a brain injury His 18 year old wife takes care
