Linkage to Love

Okay, thanks to Donna at Quiet Life (and her commenters), I am hooked on a new blog. Ree at Confessions of a Pioneer Woman is absolutely hilarious and a dad-gum fine photographer too. You all MUST go have a good laugh at these photos of cows' faces as a vet inserts his arm up theirs to see if they are pregnant or not. (Be sure and click on her first link to last year's photos of preg-testing to give more knee-slappin' context to the photos in the current post!)

I guess I should mention that Ree and her family are cattle ranchers who also homeschool their four punks (her words, not mine). That makes them honest-to-goodness cowboys and -girls! She also has a food blog, The Pioneer Woman Cooks, that looks good enough to eat and simple enough for avoidant cooking types like myself.

With step-by-step photos, of course. Didn't I mention she's a great photographer? Anyone with an interest in photography will be amazed this post where she reveals her deepest secret--Photoshop! You won't believe the before-and-after difference. I'm gonna have to start experimenting more with the Mac tools we have.

On a more serious note, Antique Mommy has some most encouraging words for moms who struggle with anger. (But not too serious...comedy is her strong point!) As a mom who's been there...continues to visit there...too often...I needed that shot of grace. Maybe you do too?

And last but not least, my sister-in-law Summer, at Striving Towards Divine Love, just finished telling the 4-part story of how she and my brother met. Bless the Lord for bringing them together! We had about given up on him.

Isn't Ree's blog amazing!
She is the Queen of Blogville.
She has only been blogging a little over a year and she has 10,000 visitors a day!

Astonishing!

She has had her camera less than two years.

Talented to the moon and back!

I love Ree's blog too, it's a gem. I've been bothering hubby that I want a better camera like Ree, so that I can take phots like Ree. I haven't seen the cow series yet, I will have to scoot on over there. Have you checked out her Marborol man's sandwich??
