Friday Faves- Reviews, blogging, and more!
Well, something that wasn't so fave this week, the rattlesnakes seem to be following me! The other night my dh and I drove the Isuzu pickup up from the barn here at our place in Central Oregon right at dark. We crossed the cattle guard by the house and my dh said, "Do you hear that?" I listened and it sounded like a rattle snake. "I think it's over there, by the flower bed," said DH. "I'll get a shovel and you turn the pick up around and flash the lights over there." I did as I was told and there, coiled up next to the rock border, was a rattlesnake. DH killed it, cut the head off and buried it, and then tossed the body in the back of his pick up to take to work. It was 36 inches long and had 7 buttons on its rattle. Then he called everyone he knew to tell them. We have never seen a rattlesnake on this property and the man who owned it before us said he's never seen one either. I don't know if we brought it from Princeton with us in something or if, like the news says, the heat has brought them out where they normally aren't.
I received a 5 heart review from The Romance Studio for Miner in Petticoats.
I'm blogging at Emma Lai Writes today so stop by there and see what kind of questions she asked me.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
