Morning Ladies! I'm heading to a music fest today and am so glad it's to be a beautiful day.
Just wanted to touch base here on the porch - reminds me of playing tag with my cousins as a kid - porch was always "base", a safe place....just like here.
Praying blessings on you all for a wonderful weekend.

Blessings, staci FG# 973

We do have a covered porch don't we??? It is rainging here & I like to sit out & watch the rain come down! It is a bit cold though!

having to take off chores today with my feet up and a heating pad. Having a diverticulitis flair today so seems like a perfect time to do bit of crochet or something....however, the weather is so beautiful I am dying to be outside.....
Ahh well, might move the rocker in the sun a bit for a good soak

Hi everyone! Luanne, welcome to the porch! We are always looking for more sisters to join us!
Today we had our second rugby games, and we DOMINATED! They didn't score at all, and our A side won by more than 40 points! The B side didn't score as much, but that's not for record, more for practice. But we still won! Whew hoo! Now for homework:( But it has to get done... Maybe later I'll make some chocolate chip cookies for the porch! I'm also going to take in some college football: Notre Dame at Michigan State. My Mom's entire family pretty much went to MSU, so we have green in our blood!
God's Blessings,
Megan aka Loretta Rae

Afternoon porchies,
A rainy chilly day here so have my teapot brimming of course. Just finished grading papers got a bit behind last week so always good to be caught up. Did not buy turtles yesterday they didn't have any and said snapping turtles would only be found and that is not good for kiddos. So I bought three fish and a heater for the tank. Pray they stay alive. I have had fish before and had good luck so just hoping it was the goldfish. The butterflies and I will have a long discussion on little we will need to feed these fish.

Welcomd Luann always room for one more on the porch.

Darlene emailed you dear.

Well ladies off to fill my teacup and take in a good book

hugs and blessings
Tammy

Megan, I thought green blood was a sign of an alien? HHHMMM? That may be why someone so young likes all us old hens! Ha! Ha! Just teasin!

I was finally able to get some very solid down the baby. She went with us to a honey festival and fire dept fish fry and ate honey cookies, whole wheat pizza, and french fries. She couldn't eat a lot of any of it, but she got enough down to make her happy. Then she switched to honey cream pie, soft and yummy! We're havin leftover noodles tonight, so she'll be able to eat good before bedtime.

Karla, Of course the porch is covered and there's firepits and bug lamps and everything! It's always comfy out here.

Well, I have a little one who's potty trainin and has been out of sight and quiet for way too long. Gotta go!

Megan, Sounds like you have a great team! Way to go.
Tammy, I agree snapping turtles would not be a good thing. Hopefully the fish will stick around for a while.
Had a good day at the shop. Of course everything is on sale.. but it's all about making money now. My son did a high altitude diving class in Lake Tahoe today. He had a great time and sounds like he is doing better. Thanks for the prayers.

Good Morning,
Lea- You are more than welcome to come to the porch and relax anytime you need to. Sorry about your tummy ache. I have 3 friends with diverticulitis and I see that flair ups can be miserable. Two of them have both had to have surgery and they are each very careful about what they eat. We have a weekly lunch soup club that 2 of these friends are in with me and several other women. We all try to be very careful about seeds in the soups we make to share. I was thinking about you 4 women with this disorder last night while slicing tomatoes for the dehydrator so I prayed for all 4 of you.

Megan- I should watch a You Tube video about rugby so that your posts about it make sense to me. It sounds great! There is a Catholic high school behind my house. They are also nationally ranked for several sports. It gets very noisy in this neighborhood when there are games.

Darlene- You are the best! Thank you for compiling all of our data! I appreciate you!

Peggy- Praying for your retreat and for your health.

Tammy- How old are your butterflies? Watching fish can be very calming, yeah for fish in the classroom!

Angela- So what was your little one up to while being too quiet? That is always a sure sign that something is happening!

Bunny- Glad to here that the sales are going well for you and that your son had an exciting afternoon.

Picked all of the ripe tomatoes yesterday. Now I have to do something with them! My intention is to can pasta sauce but I need more tomatoes to ripen to fill the canner. I haven't checked my country garden in 3 weeks. I have a fun race back "home" where that garden is this weekend so I will check it and probably get most of it ready for the winter. Cold and frost come earlier where my country garden is than here where I live.

My fun race next week is an adventure race that I am doing as part of a team with 2 of my SILs, my 8 y.o. nephew and my 15 y.o. DD. The race includes canoeing, trail running/hiking and mountain biking, oh and a poker run and mental challenges along the course! This is my 3rd year doing this race and it is so much fun. We are all in it to enjoy the outdoors and have a good time, not to really compete and place.

Okay, gotta get ready for church. Have a blessed day everyone! I left y'all some blueberry scones on the table.

Sorry I've been MIA these past couple of days. It's been really busy. Work has been interesting but not to stressful and then last night we went to see Willie Nelson. I've seen him before but he is still AMAZING! I love his music so much. It was pouring rain but everyone (5000 people) had rain gear and tarps and no one cared. We danced in the mud and rain. It truly was a celebration of music and nature. LOL!

Lida thanks bunches, I stayed home to rest a bit more today.... pacing like a caged tiger. just well enough to want to do something, but feeling bad enough to know I shouldn't!

I am going between reading, crochet, and the internet.... with my husband telling me to SIT every time I try to do something ~smile~

Hope you are all having a great day!

Good morning porchies, tried to sleep in but the furries were awake at 6:00am. Between yacking, running after a mouse someone brought in and making kittie dough on my chest.. I gave up. Thank God for coffee.

Lea, I know what you mean about wanting to do stuff when you are sick. That's when I find a good book series that I can't put down. Someone to keep the teacup filled and a good book will keep me down most days. At least you have your husband to keep you in check. Getting worse is not much fun either I suspect.

Megan, how wonderful to be on such a great team. You all must be awesome on the field!

Pam, I have seen Willie Nelson and I agree. Not sure how I would feel being out in the rain. Not too cold I hope? Sounds like a great night for a nice hot bath when you get home.

Darlene, thanks so much for getting everything together for the swap.
Later everyone enjoy your Sunday!

Lida, the little monster had snuck off to the kitchen and had taken off her training pants. She was happily crawlin around naked chasin after the cat under the table! I had to save the cat and redress the little monster.

Lea, your welcome to pace the porch anytime you need to. We have all done it at one time or another. Welcome!

Pam, I've never gotten to see Willie. I would love to if I ever get a chance to!

Megan, keep us updated on how the teams doin. Maybe we could find a webchannel if you guys get to the championship level. I know a lot of people will take their laptops and record the game in a live streaming situation to websites. Let us know if you hear anything about anyone doin that at your school!

I've been cleanin and organizin like crazy here. I almost have my house back in workin order. I am also tryin to get it ready for fall and winter. I have to get the blankets and winter clothes out and figure out where to store things till we're ready to put up the summer stuff. I am runnin in circles it feels like. I have been inventoryin everything as it gets washed so I know who needs what to get through the winter. So far I think the older girls only need some more pants, but the baby is gonna need everything. I do have boots and tennis shoes for her, but only about 6 or so outfits. She has 5 pairs of stretchy pants for layerin under her other pants for outside play, but she doesn't have the other pants yet! LOL! I think it's comin out a little backwards! Oh well. It'll all come together soon enough.

Hey everyone! For anyone's who's wondering about what rugby is and how our team is doing, we actually have a website. I'll copy the link here.
http://www.dsharugby.com/
If you look at the most recent pics, I'm in the fourth one, and I'm the one farthest right wearing the black Atlanta, Georgia shirt. The website also has all sorts of info about the sport, and our stats.
So exciting that I'm getting the porch into a new sport!

Hey porchies,
how are we tonight? Good I hope. It was a chilly day here but I went to church and then had to run to city for groceries. People today were just plain rude. I hate rudeness. there is never a reason to be unkind is the way I think. I said a prayer for them and for me to just be nice and not say anything back. But I must say that was hard.

Tomorrow back to the butterflies. Lida I teach second and third grade. Checked the fish today after church. Seem to be doing fine. The heater is keeping the water temp level and I was fascinated by how fast they swim.

I do hope you ladies have a beautiful day tomorrow.

hugs and blessings
Tammy
