from a distance girl so far I haven t got any ugly colds or flu and I would love to stay that way Sharon sorry for laughing so hysterically but your story was down home funny I bet you are all exhausted after that little escapade Even the cow is probably leaned up against a tree wheezing from the chase lol Megan I journal most of my prayers to God Have many journals that I can take down and re read different days and see where God and I have traveled together and the lessons He was teaching me Hopefully some day my children will receive them and their hearts will be touched enough to walk closer with the Lord I am like Tammy I love Journals I watch for them on sale at bookstores and always have 3 or 4 going at once Maybe one prayer journal a garden journal a My Favorite Quotes Journal I collect quotes by famous and not so famous people And always a Gratitude Journal and a Joy Journal The Joy Journal tends to be a compilation of all things that bring me joy pictures jokes cartoons experiences anything that makes me chuckle or laugh And when I need a good laugh I pull it out and am blessed all over again Judy I don t think Sharon is going to have much trouble sleeping

to work Thank you for talking with God about her My son is home for a couple of days His birthday was Tuesday but we are celebrating it tonight I canned strawberry rhubarb pie filling in the spring for his birthday celebration that pie is his standard request for his birthdays By this time next year he will be done with his Navy training and most likely be living somewhere a long way from home I pray he won t be where people are shooting at him Complaint a political pollster called last evening If the questions had more options for answers I think the poll would be more valid Instead the answers were A or B I wanted a choice C for most of the questions I don t think it will be a very accurate poll when it is reported as news Angela I grew up in a community that takes care of each other No matter where we have lived we have continued to be surrounded by people like that This year some friends adopted a co worker who is having a tough time with life right now She and her kids are going to have a fantastic Christmas morning because a few people heard that she has a need and have responded My work team adopted for a Christmas a young lady with developmental disabilities who lives on her own and is struggling Smiles for her on Jesus s birthday morning too There are lots of generous and rightly motivated people still around Dana so sorry you have been sick Be better before the holiday holy day comes Sharon Thank you for the story about the escape of the heifer Having grown up on a dairy farm I have deep appreciation for the craftiness and abilities of cows heifers and calves to escape their confines Many times I was late for a school function because I was out helping get the cows back in I am sure that your escape artist will get herself close to some food nearby Are you raising them for milk meat or both Tammy I am inviting myself to your tea party Darlene So sorry about the bedside manner of your vet As a chaplain I have sat in meetings with surgeons who have the same demeanor when discussing human beings Hugs and prayers for wisdom Gotta get a pie in the oven and get out the door to the hospital and then to a full day at work It is my favorite day of the year to work giving out end of the year bonuses to my team My boss believes that any cost cutting savings left at the end of the year go back to the employees because they are the ones who made the sacrifices so they should reap any rewards Peace Lida LadyInRed True Blue Farmgirl 5247 Posts PeggyAnn Vancouver WA USA 5247 Posts Posted Dec 16 2010 08 00 55 AM My Last Story was a Heart String Plucker This One Will Hit Your Humorous sorry for the pun to our medicalgirls lol HAPPY HOLIDAYS Author Unkown The Good Napkins This is too good to not share I think we are the last generation to know what napkins are THE GOOD NAPKINS Ahhhhh The joys of having girls My mother taught me to read when I was four years old her first mistake One day I was in the bathroom and noticed one of the cabinet doors was ajar I read the box in the cabinet I then asked my mother why she was keeping napkins in the bathroom Didn t they belong in the kitchen Not wanting to burden me with unnecessary facts she told me that those were for special occasions her second mistake Now fast forward a few months It s Christmas Day and my folks are leaving to pick up my Uncle and his wife for dinner Mom had assignments for all of us while they were gone Mine was to set the table When they returned my Uncle came in first and immediately burst into laughter Next came his wife who gasped then began giggling Next came my Father who roared with laughter Then came Mom who almost died of embarrassment when she saw each place setting on the table with a special occasion Kotex napkin at each plate with the fork carefully arranged on top I had even tucked the little tail in so they didn t hang off of the edge My mother asked me why I used these and of course my response sent the other adults into further fits of laughter But Mom you said they were for special occasions Farmgirl 1326 http ladyinredsite blogspot com http pegsmiles7 wordpress com http www sunshinefarmgirlcoop com PeggySmithsStudio html I

birds and stuff and she runs into things We were afraid goin blind would make her mean and she is one big dog She hasn t changed much at all though We still take her for walks they just go alot slower than before and she walks spladdle legged to keep her balance but the rest is just the same I m sure you ll find your dog reacts much the same to it s sad fate Animals tend to adjust better than

your stories I have one not so humorous but left me with a lesson My oldest was in cub scouts and I was a den leader and did lots of other jobs in the pack I had a friend in the next town over that did lots of work helping out people in poverty situations At Christmas she arranged adoptions of families Every family needed something different Some a tree with decorations was enough Others it was groceries and presents for the kids Our Cub Scout Pack decided to adopt a large family Mom Grandma son daughter and Mom had a small daughter about 3 years old The kids did jobs around their neighborhoods and raised the money themselves A few of us moms did the shopping We bought tons of groceries and had a blast shopping for jammies sweaters slippers and a few toys for the little girl When we arrived at the families house The mom came out and her response was just put everything in the kitchen She then turned away and went back in the house The presents went in the living room Grandma was cooking and when we went into the kitchen we could see piles of garbage bags on the back porch The place was a mess and the little girl was eating donuts for her dinner It turned out she was actually the daughter of the teenage girl there and the teenager was pregnant again When we left we got no thank you No help bringing in the items It was as if this was life as usual for them We left and felt taken advantage of On the way home we decided to stop at a little coffee place to absorb the experience and deal with the let down we all felt The lesson we discovered and this was hard Was it wasn t our place to judge We decided on looking at the positives The little 3 year old would now have fresh fruit as an option to donunts She would also have some nice clean and new jammies and some fun toys for Christmas We felt God had taken us to that family and we had no right to the need to feel good We did what we were led to do and we had a wonderful night shopping together and nothing would take that wonderful feeling away from us So not every story is warm and fuzzy but a lesson in humility that God is in charge and we need to just let go of our needs and let him do his stuff My family decided to adopt a father and his son at the same time They needed a tree ornaments and a coat for the little boy We went as a family to shop and then took everything over to them They lived in a tiny trailer and were so greatful They insisted on us coming in mind you this was a tiny tiny trailer We crammed in a small seating area and the father made us coffee and hot chocolate The difference was amazing compared to the other family I know it made an impact on my son He was amazed at how tiny the trailer was and didn t know there were people that lived like that I have done random acts of kindness before finally learning to let go of what it did for me just hearing Gods voice in my head to do what he was commanding Anyway hope this touches you in some way Bunny www

back home Dana you and your recovering baby will be in my prayers Peggy even if they aren t your stories they still bring light to the porch And I m really getting into the writing to God I think I might start keeping more journals Lida that s so nice of your company to do that for your employees Bunny that s a sweet story I read in my devotional the other day about a vet who sewed up a wounded dog gave him shelter and fed him But then the dog ran away The vet thought that the dog was so ungrateful but the next night the dog showed up with a friend in need The point was that sometimes we don t see the scope of what we do but that we should still be glad we did it because to someone it may have made a difference Today was another day TGIF tomorrow though Then the weekend Catching up on homework and hopefully I ll make it to my cousin s basketball game for the first time That would be so fun I also have to find service on short notice for Monday I was thinking of going to St Ben s

Vancouver WA USA 5247 Posts Posted Dec 17 2010 12 43 27 AM Bunny loved your story and what great lessons It is funny because my Scout Troupe and I had a very similar experience to yours except I remember that the people seemed honestly appreciative but they had more food in their house and more gifts under their tree than probably any member of my Troupe had including my children husband and me And that left us all feeling like we just helped a family who wasn t needy at all BUT I tried to tell my kids and myself that we really couldn t judge their circumstances because we didn t know what they truly were going through And like you said We just have to listen to God s prompting and not second Guess Him just be obedient to His will He see s the bigger picture and He will work it all out just like it should be Our job is to listen and obey not judge Thanks so much for sharing it brought back some old memories and lessons learned for me too Angela thanks for sharing your Families blessings too I know that you guys always bless others in your extended family when you are blessed with anything so it is awesome to see God stretching the blessings to help even more people than just yourselves You have very unselfish hearts Speaking of hearts I hope yours is doing better Hi Pam and Megan good to see you two on the Porch tonight too You two lovely ladies are always a delight to us all Well I had a busy day doing laundry knitting doing Yogo In Bed and taking a mile walk with Bella Then I was tired and took a nice long nap Now it is bed time I just finished the dishes and

never complimented me like that I was the one who got pregnant in highschool and have always been kinda the poor one of the family I m the one everyone usually talks about as havin it hard I kinda just am there normally at the parties but this year they all wanted to know how I had lost so much weight and where had I found my brownie recipe and stuff I was glad to see my uncle I ve mentioned

of catching up to do Prayers are going out to everyone in need It seems like there are so many who are hurting either physically or in their hearts right now Thank you to all of you who sent Christmas cards I m so far behind I don t know if I will get mine out in time or not but I m gonna try in the next day or two I drove from PA to Vermont on December 10th to my Mom s and we left on December 11 12 for New York City with a bus trip sponsored by her Seniors group We spent Sunday in Tarrytown NY visiting the old Union Church at the Rockefeller estate Mom s friend Beverly and her daughter Carol went with us Beverly s father was one of the first pastors of this church in the 1920 s They had never been there before so were thrilled to see the church and to see his name on a plaque on the wall The stained glass windows in the church were done by two famous articles Chagall and Matise We also toured Lyndhurst Castle and then had dinner at Castle on the Hudson Monday was a rough day Mom tore a ligament in her knee at breakfast at the hotel and we had a rough time getting her on and off the bus and around Rockefeller Center all day long She was in a lot of pain and couldn t put hardly any weight on her leg We went to see the Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall in the afternoon before taking the bus back to Vermont I was supposed to drive back home to PA on Tuesday but stayed an extra day to take Mom to the doctor There was no way I wanted her to drive with her leg in that condition plus it was snowy and icy out When we finally got home at 7 00 p m it was bitter cold and windy and we were locked out of the house I ended up breaking the glass in the door to get in Wednesday after lunch I left for home and had a flat tire on the Taconic Parkway Couldn t get the lug nuts loose so had to call AAA They put my donut spare on but I was too far to go all the way home on that so had to find a place to get a new tire Never got home until 11 00 p m should have been home by 6 00 Needless to say this was a rough trip New York is always beautiful at Christmas though and we did have a good time in spite of all the issues Anyway it was a long story but now you know why I m so far behind on my cards Oh yeah and I m driving back to Vermont again this Thursday to spend Christmas with Mom and some cousins who are coming for the day I ll be there until the following Monday the 27th if all goes as planned If I don t get a chance to write again before I leave I hope everyone has a marvelous holiday Hugs and blessings to all Luanne beekeepersgirl 691 Pleasant words are as an

miserable here but for some reason I am feeling really pretty good the last two days Go figure this whole Fibro thing can be such a mystery at times Anyway I count my blessings and go with the flow on these good days I got up this morning and said Self today is the day to get back on the good eating and exercise program and to quit going nuts on all the Holiday goodies So I had grapefruit and three glasses of water at about 7 30 and then I am just about ready to go have a bowl of oatmeal Then I went to the exercise room and walked on the Treadmill Which is boring as I would rather walk outside in fresh air with some nice views to enjoy but not in this weather Then I did 30 crunches on another machine and 20 arm curls combined with a stomach crunch on a different machine The Yoga in Bed that I did the other morning really made my Knees and hips hurt but I haven t sat Indian Style in years so I am guessing that is going to take some getting use to Started out slowly this week but will build back up Then I came in did the dishes took out the trash paid some bills and now I am getting ready to wrap the stocking stuffers I purchased over the weekend Have to purchase two gift cards and I am finally finished It has really been a stress free Holiday Season and that is how I like it And I am NOT waiting for the First of The Year to start thinking healthy and that feels good too It was fairly busy on the Porch over the weekend I kept hopping on reading the posts but didn t really have much to share Me with nothing to say that is a first That is almost laughable huh Well here is wishing All My Porchies A Very Merry Christmas Week one filled with Peace and Harmony in your Hearts and Homes along with Hopes Dreams and fulfilled Wishes And may we all slow down and Focus On The

with our loved ones in Celebration of Jesus Birthday There is nothing better than Family and Friends to rejoice with I just found out that my little Grand daughter Madeline may come from Seattle and stay with us next week for a couple of days and one night This will be a first for us having her at our house I am excited about that Then my husband just offered to have someone come in and clean the house for me occassionally to help me out since I can t deep clean like I use to That will be a blessing if I can actually just let go and let her do it My tendency is to want to clean the house good before she gets here which would defeat the purpose I loved that he wants to get me some help because he does nothing at home to help except make messes but in all fairness he does work all day So bless his heart for being willing to pay somebody Well I m off for the night I am totally ready for Christmas and my heart has prepared HIM room Love and Hugs peggy Farmgirl 1326 http ladyinredsite

walked out with her and left the guy blowing steam in his stew He deserves it That is too funny that she thought she was emailing her hubby and it was the boss Myself I don t think mistakes like that happen by accident It was all meant to be At The Big Christian Book Store I worked at in Portland I was sitting in The Managers Office we all had our own cubicles in One Big Office for all Department Managers Well The IT Tech came in and I notice him working over in a corner hooking up some electronic box with a big ol blinking red light on it so I asked him what he was installing He said Oh I m not really sure they just told me to put it in over here I said Whose is they He said The Corporate Office I said Well what does it do What is it s purpose He said Oh I m not sure OK girls I wasn t born yesterday this is an IT Tech he knew what that box did So I said Get Real Gary that is to monitor our conversations in here isn t it He said Why would they want to do that The proverbial dodge answer a question with a question So all that day I kept saying things about knowing what they were doing spying in on our conversations and telling people NOT to be saying anything about Corporate whose offices were right behind our store and two days later the box was gone That is exactly what they were doing and it made them mad that I figured it out and so it put them in a position of me being able to sue them if I chose to They always thought I was going to sue them because I always caught them doing dishonest things It was one of those times I was thankful that God made me intuitive to what is going on around me And when I ended up quitting they sweat it out for three years that I was going to sue them for Age Discrimanation because I had all kinds of proof against them on that and much more But I didn t it was just good that they knew that I knew it helped keep them in line OK Pam now what Keep us posted girl You need to get out of there For sure hit him up for a big raise

just love cross country skiing I want to try snowshoeing too but I want to do some research first before buying some Looks like a fun way to get some exercise though I don t know what my FIL is doing I think he s bored and needs a job and is so worried about where the economy is going that he s all over the place trying to think of schemes to start businesses that he can pass down to his grandkids It s just wierd how he s acting because he s always been kind of a hard nose about things He s always had that attitude of If you can t pay for it yourself then you don t need it type I kind of think he s getting worried about his mortality and leaving his wife with not enough to live on which is dumb because they are always welcome in our home My husband is going to talk to him when he get s a chance and ask what is going on This whole thing has been odd not in his character Pam tell me what a romantic dinner is like we don t get those often enough with the little ones Glad you had a wonderful night Cherime don t work too hard Dianne I know what you mean it s so nice to recognize familiar faces on different threads I had to go into work last night and didn t get home till 11pm and Ava my 1 1 2 yr old had a rough night with her cold on top of the fact that I came home to a mystery wet spot on my side of the bed I think one of my essential oils leaked out of my bag onto the bed so I had to wrap myself in a comforter from another room to sleep for the little that I got I m really hoping I can convince my 3 yr old to take a nap with me today when Ava s asleep Wish me luck

7 30pm My poor son was sick with a bad cold It was an eye opening trip for me In my desperation to stay local I have entertained the thought of finding a place with my X He is a transgendered man to woman Strange but I deal He drove me nuts the whole trip No much common sense Just one more peice of information that tells me moving is the right thing at least for now My mom is beside herself with excitment I can t figure it out We didn t get along when I was a kid But I was the one that did everything around the house and brought no drama into our life I was the good daughter While my sister has dumped her kids on my mom to raise gone through numerous marrages 3 times back and fourth to the same man My life has been pretty much steady and I didn t concern her with anything I have to keep telling myself something good will come of this I got home sick as a dog of course catching what my son had I feel like caca At least I don t have anything pressing to do right now But I still have so much to pack The timeing is going to be tough He starts his new job weekend after this Then the last weekend in January he goes to Houston for a week Of course if escrow closes that weekend I have no way to get my stuff out of the house I m trying not to stress One day at at time Peggy I m so glad you get to see your granddaugher more often My grandmother was the most important person in my life She was the only one that showed me unconditional love I never had to conform to her beliefs and she always seemed to get Me I miss her so much My grandfather was the gruff teddy bear type If you were good he would slip you a bill or two When we were really young we discovered that change fell out of his pocket into the cushions of his chair Amazingly enough there was always an equal amount of money for how many of us were there Nickles dimes and quarters were quite a score when you were 5 years old My grandmother always read at least two stories at night I carried on that with my boys It was the best time of the evening for me Just know it is the little things she will remember Everyone sounds like they had a wonderful Christmas holiday It was pretty quiet here Just the 3 of us watching movies and eating turkey and the fixins My decorations were all packed up in storage and I guess my heart just wasn t into it I love buying gifts for my family They don t feel the same about gift giving I would love to meet a guy that has a wonderful family that I can connect with and make holidays special again I did connect with a guy on eharmoney only to find out he is losing his house too He sounds like a great guy I just don t think I need to deal with that with a possible mate I would love to find someone to connect with that has it together I feel it is a bit hypocrital of me but I m so tired of the stress that goes along with all of this I still have not heard anything from the bank I guess

before where do I start Do we keep it just between us Or do we go out into the website and open it to all Tea Bags I mean tea drinking Farmgirls LOL I suppose we could do it like the Christmas card swap Everybody sign up that wants to then we just send a teabag or 1 serving of loose tea to everyone A teabag doesn t require any extra postage in an envelope I did it along with my Christmas cards Even at that we would collect a lot of teas to try Give me your in put Gals Sister chick 905 Sept 14th 2009 Judy Hugs Squeezles I am not contained between my hat and my boots Walt Whitman LadyInRed True Blue Farmgirl 5247 Posts PeggyAnn Vancouver WA USA 5247 Posts Posted Jan 07 2011 12 00 01 AM Judy you could do it either way but it would just be simpler to do it like we are the ornament swap Have twelve people sign up One person signs up for a particular month and sends out a tea bag to the 11 other gals in the swap Each month you would get a different tea to try Or you could do it every two weeks and do 24 gals signing up I think it would get way out of hand doing it outside the Porch but it s is entirely up to you If you do it monthly put me down for July Give every one like a week to sign up They email you if they want to participate and you

    we just need her to pop in and pick a month This will be so fun and so we keep a different tea going out each month we should keep track after they send it for their month who sent what Then the rest of us won t duplicate and we can actually try 12 different teas Don t ya think It is going to be fun to see what varieties are sent out I am so excited And Madame Butterfly I knew you would be all a flutter about a tea swap too In fact I am really quite shocked that you never thought of it yourself lol You always have the most scrumptious sounding teas that you are sippen on I want to come to your house for a Tea Party And by the way what book are you reading right now just curious From one avid book reader to another Angela your little girl is going to be soooo excited over that lettuce I wish I was a fly on the wall just so I could see her expression when you show her the lettuce How do you keep her out of the Green House if it is in your living room Do you have a lock on it

07 PM Joy there is always room on the porch We are a friendly and lively bunch here Welcome Peggy my little one has always been around momma s growin pots and she has learned to not dig in them I have plastic curtian like walls on my greenhouse which she is welcome to open and look in so long as she doesn t dig in the pots She loves checkin the greenhouse everyday and helpin momma count the plants so she stays out of them to keep her priviledges of gettin to look at them I checked the plants agian this mornin and found all 18 plants peakin out of the dirt When my Hubby showed our little one she started oohin and ahhin over them I had to make her a salad for lunch since the greenhouse is keepin it forefront in her mind but I like that she will eat salads I got all but 2 of the carrot flats planted last night so I need to get them done this afternoon I guess I ought to get busy and finish cleanin the house so I can have time for my greenhouse Farmgirl Sister 1438 God Gardening Family Is

tea treats and a warm quilt on cold nights It s quite a place Angela I am soooo jealous you have stuff growing so soon Not fair It is a nice 23 degrees at night at my Mom s in Oregon If I was there I don t believe I would be getting anything to sprout just yet The tea swap sounds great However I am a total tea snob and only like certain ones I would hate to have anyone waste good tea on me that I might not drink I did try all the teas that were sent as gifts But I m pretty much an earl grey or jasmine tea girl Very stuffy I know It looks like my next possible exit from California is after Feb 1 The rules for the Hafa program I need to stay out of financial despair change I can move away However I m not clear on if I m allowed to get a job when I move I m still suppose to keep my house here as my primary residence Of course every time I call the bank I get a different answer They did reject the offer on the house I know at this point the house will not sell The realtor can t get comps on it and the bank won t lower the offer price because of that and no lenders want to loan on a log house because they can t get comps to figure out what the house is worth in my area So it s just a catch 22 and the house is pretty much going to just sit here I m going to call HUD and hopefully get more info on the Hafa program to make sure I can actually make a living somewhere I won t even be able to get county assistance in Oregon because I can t establish residency And the new laws are suppose to help homeowners yeah right Anyway so I m still hanging in Thankfully feeling a bit more human after 3 days of meds for the strep The weather has been ok but I had to turn off the main heat to the house It was costing me 100 00 a week in propane n I m pretty much hold up in my bedroom with an electric space heater It s working for now I spend all of my time in my room anyway It s pretty cozy actually But I can t wait to get out of here Well I m off to have lunch with a friend I m getting a bit of cabin fever everyone stay warm and healthy Bunny www bunnyrose com atkinst2 True Blue Farmgirl 466 Posts Theresa Canal Winchester OH USA 466 Posts Posted Jan 08 2011 1 20 08 PM Hi

I would love to get in on the tea swap if a month is still available let me know Darlene for some reason I did not get the ornament you sent It could be that I didn t get you my address in time with

have already started working on them This is so exciting I love swaps Hope I m not to late for the Tea Swap Staci what a cute turtle told you I was behind in posts hahahahaha Darlene True story about

sign up Youngest dd and niece had their first basketball games this morning They both had good games DD s team lost but they had fun It was more like watching a gladiator version of b ball LOL Niece s team won and the game was a little more laid back But the main thing is the girls both tried their best and had fun doing it I even saw dd out there chumming it up with the girl she was guarding After the game I took the kids to grab a bite of lunch and then to the library I wasn t really looking for anything in particular really just went so the kids could find something to read But I came across a book on Palmistry Oldest dd and I have been laughing and reading a little waiting on dinner to get done Well off to find something to do Probably some laundry The kids took care of taking out the
