Weekend Wind-down Link Party #7

I have slacked in my walking Across Wyoming! We had a cold snap one week, and snow/wind the next. I just couldn’t bring myself to go out and fight the cold and wind. But this week is better. This week I have walked! And all that snow? Well, it is melting into lakes and puddles and swollen creeks! It’s a wonderful sight!

Weekend Wind-down Link Party #5

Welcome back to our Weekend Wind-down link party!

How was your week? Mine was great – other than some blogging stress associated with the loss of our internet signal for the better part of four days! I guess the heavy cloud cover/snowstorm was to blame. We didn’t get a lot of snow – just lots of really cold weather! Like -22º!!! Brrrr. It is a beautiful, frozen world out there…

Weekend Wind-down Party


My Cowboy spent two days this week meeting with a guy from CO who was selling off some bred heifers. They looked good, so he ended up buying a few. It’s really exciting to see our personal cattle herd start to grow! Yes, it’s tiny – in ranching terms, (kinda like my blog, in blogging terms!) but it’s growing! And that is the fun part – the potential. The growth. The dreams for the future. Hey, we need to have something to keep these youngsters busy as they grow up, right? What better way than having a herd of cows to care for? :)

Weekend Wind-Down Link Party #4

Happy Friday!

It is cold and snowy around these here parts, although that is normal for us – unlike the weather in the south! I feel for ya – all you southerners! I know when it gets cold down there, it feels really miserable! Guess you just have to use the cold as an excuse to drink more coffee – or hot chocolate. :)

Weekend Wind-down Party #2

Happy Friday, friends! I have been on a week-long vacation in (mostly) sunny Florida!! I loved spending a few days there and visiting all my childhood haunts. I mostly enjoyed showing them to my own children. They fell in love with the tree-ripened grapefruits, sandy white beaches, and swaying palm trees – just as I did as a kid. It did mess up my blogging for awhile though – I  couldn’t seem to get to much internet – let alone a computer! So I apologize for missing last week’s linky party. I am here tonight! :) (and super excited!) I will leave you with just one picture from my vacation last week…

Lido Beach

I’m also thrilled to be able to bring you this party each week along with 7 other fun bloggers. We’re excited to get your posts out there and see what you have to share with us! To start this party we’ve picked 7 unique features from last weeks party. (Please note that we can only feature posts and/or bloggers that link back to us in some way!) Here are this week’s fabulous features: (click on the image to go read the post!)
