Book Drawing and SNOW?

The winner of my blog drawing this week is Carolyn. She blogs at Checkerboard Squares

If you would like to win a book become a follower of my blog and leave a comment. If you do both of those things your name will go in the jar for next week’s drawing.

And new this week -- if you visit two or three times during the week your name will go in two or three times. So visit often.

I just looked out my window and it’s SNOWING big time.

Enough already! It’s May 24th, yet it feels like February. Don’t get me wrong I love winter, but even I’m beginning to grow weary of the cold. I want sunshine, birds singing, walking in the park, going to the swimming pool, picnics and all that other fun summer stuff.

SNOW, really?

Okay, I’m finished with my little rant.

Last weekend my hubby and I went to Idaho to visit relatives, attend a wedding reception, and go to a baby blessing. Great times! I love catching up with family and friends I haven’t seen for a while. We were only there for three days and weren’t able to visit with everyone we wanted, but getting away even for a short time recharged my batteries.

One problem though, I wasn’t able to keep up with the blogs I follow. AND I missed them. There isn’t enough hours in the day for me to catch up, work on edits, and write. So I hope if I’ve missed some major news someone will let me know.

Here’s a couple of questions for you:

What do you like most about getting away for the weekend?

How do you go through all the blogs you’ve missed and keep up with your work?

AND the final question…


Just wondering…


  1. Kathi! Thanks so, so, so much! I'm very excited to read the book! Yay! Thanks again.

    I never go back and try to catch up on blogs. It's just too hard and too time consuming. I start the day I get back and go from there.

    BTW, I can't believe it's snowing. It's crazy!

  2. Oh, I can't image snow right now. We had 90 degree weather yesterday and it's suppose to be in the upper 80s today. Summer will come. :)

    Thoughts in Progress

  3. Crazy weather! And the swimming pool is supposed to open this weekend. Haha!

  4. You're very welcome, Carolyn! Good to know what others do when it comes to getting behind on following blogs. Hey, and it quit snowing. Yay! Now if only it would warm up. ;)

  5. 90 degrees...Mason that sounds wonderful. I'm sure we'll get there soon. Weather in Utah is very fickle. But this year it's been cooler than usual. Thanks for stopping by. Send some of that sun shine on over. ;)

  6. Amanda, by the weekend it could be 90 degrees. Mason might send her weather over. Yay! ;)

  7. We've been in shorts and flip flops for a month here in San Antonio. I've seen snow in April in other places I've lived, but never May. I wouldn't be a fan. Love it, but not in May.

  8. Carol, I love the snow, but in November-February. not May 24th. Crazy.
