Good Afternoon Porchies...I have been busy catching up on MJF Stuff this morning.

Mama Jewel...it is great to have you back. You have been missed!

Angela...dear heart, you do very little complaining and a lot of Praising and giving
God the credit for caring for you and your little Family. We all have those
Desert Experiences (like when the hubby was out of work) but when we look
back we see that God was there all along getting us through and building
our Character. If all we ever had were Mountain Top Experiences or Fabulous
times of Harvest...than we would forget God. We would put Him on the back-
burner. I have found over my life time...that if God seems silent...then he
is working extra hard in the back-ground on my behalf. He just loves to bless his
children. He is the BEST PAPA EVER!

Darlene...Are you still canning up a storm girl?

Cherime...what a pretty name! My Mom volunteers at a Food Bank In Spokane, WA and she is on the
Board of It too. She is so passionate about raising money and donations for it because
she sees the need is so much greater with these hard economical times.
I am the type of person that would have too much pride (I know that is a sin...I'm working
on it) but I know there are others who feel as I would...so, everyday when I go out to pick
in my Garden, I give the first picking to a Neighbor that I know can use a little help. I
try to do the same thing when I buy groceries or eat out. When I order soup out for lunch...
I never eat the crackers...but I don't throw them out or send them back, I put them in my
purse and throw them in a quart size plastic bag at home, and when it is full...I leave it at someone's
door, here in our Senior Estates. I do that with other things too, but that was just an example.
There are all kinds of ways to help others. If something is buy one get one free at the grocery
store...one of them goes to somebody else.

Megan and Channah...I can almost hear the School Bell Ringing!

Dana...the birthday party sounds like a blast! Can I come???? :+) I love horses but never get to ride any more!

Well girls...I'll be back later, I really need to go get something done around here
today. I could sit and chat the day away easily!

hugs & blessings,
~peggy

Pam...you and I must have come onto the Porch at the same time. I feel much better today!
Oh, goodie goodie on the picture! Can't wait for the mail this weekend!
That was cool that you got into the concert for free. Love those kind of surprises!
Glad to hear the dogs are doing better. Poor babies! And that YOU are feeling better.

Well, my house is screaming at me for some TLC...I better go do something! Anything would
be good!

Hugs,

So my daughter decides she needs to go shopping today in a pink tutu, fairy wings, and a hello kitty tiara that she got while we were getting party favors. Hilarious! The funny part to me is that I am sooo not the girly-girl type and she is all about pink and ruffles and princesses. Even the people where I get my dog food laugh at how girly my daughter is compared to me. At least she doesn't mind getting dirty; I guess I still have that

I'm going over my notes for an interview tomorrow. Not sure if I should go back to work full time or not. I would love to, but part of me isn't sure if it's good for the kids yet. (9 year old twins who both have autism). Us moms never have an easy decision - always seems like we feel guilty for some reason. Anyway, if God wants me to go back to work full time, then I will. Wish me luck!
Have a great evening,

Dana, to cute. I have a daughter like that. However, she's 33! Hair down to her waist, long nails always freshly manicured. Never goes out without makeup...yada yada. With 4 kids too! House is always spotless and everything is in it's place. Used to be like that, now the house looks lived in! LOL! You ever see the sign,"The house was clean yesterday...sorry you missed it.'

Good for you that you let her go dressed like that. My daughter is so hoping her only daughter will be like that. At 20 months she is a tomboy with her brothers!

Didn't can today but need to tomorrow.

Cindy...trust God to make the right decision for you and he will. Mother's always feel guilty. I worked nightshift so I could be home with my kids. I was always tired but I didn't have to put them in daycare. If you have a supportive husband it will work out.

Hugs and Blessings,

Hello porchies,
I am coming to sit with my tea and catch up with yall. My classroom is ready to go so I can take tomorrow off as this is my last summer weekend. Monday will be the first day of school and my twins are 8th graders can't believe that but it is nice teaching in their school so I see them.

I spent this evening weeding my herb garden and repotting a few. Planning my small garden for next summer. I have never been very good at gardening but I can grow herbs which has inspired me to try a small garden next summer.

Hope all you ladies have had a wonderful day. I will miss not getting to check in until the evening next week.

hugs and blessings
tammy

Cindy, I'll be praying for you. It's always a hard decision when you're kids are growing up. But some things are only for a season, and maybe this is a season for you to be working outside the house, bringing in some extra cash and getting a little break from the house and maybe there's someone there that needs encouragement on raising their Autistic children, you'll be able to be a great mentor....We never know how God wants to use us....just be willing and able! He'll take care of the rest!
enjoy your day ...

Tammy, I hope you have a very relaxing last weekend before school starts! It's fun to play in the dirt and get your hands dirty, pulling weeds and looking at what little treasures are hidden in the garden...I love to go out there...I've neglected mine most of the summer. I went out there yesterday to soak up some rays, and I was looking around at the mess, but as I looked a little longer, I saw all the plants that have grown even neglected and how beautiful they are even though they were overgrown....and leggy, and creeping out over the patio boundaries...they still had life and beauty! Two even had showy blooms, saying "here I am, I made it"...
I hope you have a weekend of relaxation and anticipation for the new year! Keep that fresh start mentality throughout the year and if you get tired and need refreshed that you still bloom and say" Here I am, I made it!"

Hi All! It is so good to "hear" your voices again - I've missed you. It seems I had just found the porch and then life became a whirlwind. I've been reading back a few days and it really is good to see the sharing and caring here. I look forward to sitting on the glider with my iced tea and catching up with you all.


Blessings, staci FG# 973

Hi porchies...I just found this www.tipnut.com. Another sister posted it and I checked it out. Angela it has canning recipes as well as other things like free canning labes. Peggy and Pam there are all sorts of crafts and patterns. Maybe you all know about this site but if you don't check it out. You'll be surprised.

Bringing white pizza with mushrooms, black olives and fresh tomatoes. Also whole wheat pizza with red sauce, mushrooms and black olives. Peach iced tea coming too!

Blessings,

Afternoon porchies,
I just thought I would bring some brownies and a pot of English Breakfast tea. I cleaned my house, have laundry done, plannned out my meals for the next two weeks and made a grocery list. Going back to work fulltime I have to be bit more organized. Can't believe I will be teaching already on Monday. Summer sure did go fast.

I have enjoyed today at home with my sons. We have had an enjoyable day together except for our dog getting sprayed by a skunk. He just had to put his head in the hole by our creek and just had to not let well enough alone. so we had to give him a good scrubbing. Now he smells like Lavendar but hey that is better than skunk lol

have a good afternoon ladies. Be back later.

blessings and hugs
Tammy
