A Bit Ole Fashioned

welcome to the Ranch     Well Hey there. So glad to get a chance to visit with You today on Our Front Porch. Always so good to have You drop by to spend time with Us. Hope Your Family is doing well and Your week has gotten off to a real good start.

weater-the-storm     For all Our Front Porch Friends who are not in South Carolina, We are all getting ready for some wild wind and heavy rain as Hurricane Matthew gets ready to pay Us a call. This sweet ole Ranch House of Ours has seen a bunch of them. She has survived over a hundred years worth of Hurricane Seasons. Well I will admit, I always get a little nervous with Hurricanes. You just never know whats  gonna happen. If it was just Us losing power, it really might not be so bad. Anyway, We went to the store last night cause We ran out of Milk (thanks to Jake, He just loves it, drinks it with everything). Of course it was like a mad house, no bottled water, no bread, and almost no milk. Its always just amazing to Me. So many, many folks in one place in such a awful hurry.

oil-lamp      Yall know there are certain advantages to living the way We do. Kinda like a old version of today’s off grid living if You will.  I know that if the lights go out, We have plenty of candles, oil lamps  and lanterns. We can cook on the grill and use My cast iron pots  and build a fire and cook in the fireplaces or outside over an open fire. I keep the pantry stocked with coffee, flour, sugar, rice, grits not to mention can goods and some canned foods. We have fresh eggs from the chickens and ducks too. If We get hot the windows are screened so they go up without the bugs getting in. If We get cold We have the fireplaces in each room and plenty of beds and nice warm quilts to snuggle in.

sewing-basket     The Kids have plenty of things to do as well that are non electric. Gracie has Her sewing, embroidery and crochet, Her singing and guitar.  Jake has his drawing, whittling, his fiddle,  gardening and wood chopping.  Not to mention caring for Their Animal Friends.

poinsetta-plant     I am kinda worried about Our new Greenhouse with all the high winds We are suppose to be getting with this Hurricane. We have already put all the flower pots and hanging baskets inside from off the Front Porch. Hopefully the plastic won’t rip and the Plants will stay safe inside. I have My Poinsettia from last Christmas in the Greenhouse, hoping it will bloom again for Us this year at Christmas time.

rolling-pin     Reading back over this I guess We seem a bit ole fashion to a lot of Folks. In Our World there are Doilies on the Fainting Couch, Pillows with Fringe and Tassels. Coffee in Cups with Saucers under them. Rolling Pens in the kitchen that are used 2 or 3 times a week. Oil Lamps and Candle Lamps, Handkerchiefs with Lace, Sweet Tea in Mason Jars, old Family Photos in black and white, Aprons, Wild Flowers in little Vases, Fresh Eggs, Cowboy Boots, Feather Pillows and Handmade Quilts, Sewing Baskets, pressed Leaves in Books, Crisp White Sheets, Sunday Suppers and Family Stories, Outdoor Games, lots of Faith and Fellowship, Rockers and Porch Swings for Family and Front Porch Friends to rest upon…..

side of house     I guess We are a lot ole fashioned. I really love Our World.

Yall  try to stay safe and dry. And please come back and visit with Us again real soon on Our Front Porch. Don’t forget to tell the Family We said Hey!  ~Love from the Ranch~
