Sigh. I just slammed the oven door on a pan of fudge brownies and settled down to write a short post before the dinner party starts. PS. These brownies come from Scotland originally, are over 100 years old, and if you ask nicely I’ll share the recipe with you. Wink, wink.
Next week I’m loading up Blue Duck (Adrian’s horse) and Fat Albert (my horse), my bedroll, kitchen stuff and braiding gear and heading up to Bakersfield to hang out with my friend Nicole for the summer, focus on my writing, and play cowboy. I’m so excited I could bust, it’s been a loooong time since I’ve gone somewhere new and I can’t wait to get my roping arm back in shape.
For all of you heading off to rodeos, parties, and BBQ’s for the weekend, please be safe and remember the real reason behind Memorial Day Weekend: To honor the lives of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country. I’m so proud to be an AMERICAN!!
My friend, fellow blogger, and cowboy boot collector Monica from Jersey Girl, Texan Heart always posts a 5 for Friday, and she inspired me to make my own. Thanks Monica!!
Five for Friday
1. Take time occasionally to kick up your heels and relax with friends.
2. Never underestimate the power of a simple “Thank you!”
3. Silver jewelry is always elegant.
4. Take pride in the way your horses, gear, and pickup look.
5. Always carry chap stick with you!
