It's me again:)

Ok, picture this: I'm home, all alone. Marv and the girls went to check on the cattle. They left me with peace and dirty dishes.  I've got an almost empty bag of nachos and a cup of cappuccino. Ahhhh..... no more excuses not to post something in my blog.:)

Sorry for leaving you readers for a while. I just didn't have the urge to post anything. But then some of my faithful friends started leaving me messages, asking if everything was ok. One of my bloggy friends even awarded me (I think she gave me the award to wake me up to start blogging again:), thanks Betty! (More on that later)

I started to post something a few times, but it would take forever to post pictures. But I'm here now, so this is what's been happening in my life now.

The cute calf in the first picture is my new project. Her mama stepped on her legs right after she was born and broke 2 of them. We put her front leg in a splint and the hind leg healed on its own. Her name is Toddy (a brand of chocolate milk down here) and she's doing great now. She's not usually in my flower bed, but the girls thought it would make a great photo shoot:)

Our next new pet is a cute little turtle. My mom found it on the road and gave it to Brianna. We started to call it "Chipa" because of it's shape and size, but Brianna renamed it and I forgot what it's name is now. It's so small I could fit two on them in the palm of my hand. This is the kind of turtle that gets to be about 30 cm (12 inches) in diameter.
We went to our parents ranch the other day. This is what the front gate looks like. Can you see the name of the ranch on the sign? Who can guess what it means?  (Sisters are not allowed to answer this:) Whoever has been reading my blog for awhile should be able to answer this.
This is what Brianna likes to do on the ranch.

This is what Cindy likes to do on the ranch.

And this is what Amy likes to do on the ranch.

 I love my girls, even if they drive me crazy sometimes.

 So I baked them their favorite snack last week. Big, crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside pretzels:)

 I received a surprise last week, my friend Betty from A glimpse into midlife awarded me with this sunshine award! Thanks Betty!

Every award has it´s rules and this one is pretty easy.

Thank the person who awarded you and link back to them.
(Did that!)

Tell one thing about yourself.
(I collect more crafting magazines and ideas than I'll ever be able to make in 4 lifetimes! I just checked and I have over 5 GB of crafting magazines in my computer and a whole shelf in my bookcase full!)

Nominate 10 blogs for the award.
( I haven't been blogging for awhile and haven't been keeping up with other blogs either, so I won't do this today. Sorry:)

This is Brianna's cow saying:

"Thanks for dropping in on the Chacogirl, and moooove back here soooon!:)"


  1. I was in a craft store today looking around, wanting to buy something, when I realized I have a zillion things at home that I should make first!

    Just like mascaras and lipsticks, I need to use some up before I but any more!

    Hello to you. My little carved animals are sitting right next to me as I type!

  2. I think I know your parents sign means. It´s the beginning two letters of all four sisters, right?
    Nice to see you posting again.
    Your girls looks good on the horse!

  3. Oh, those pretzels look WONDERFUL!!! Thank you for the recipe.

  4. Welcome back to blog land my friend. I hope you received my Emails, I was worried about you. Love the pictures and please send me the recipe for those luscious looking pretzels. I too, sadly have more quilting books and more projects on the back burner than I will ever finish in this life time!


Please leave your name when you comment! I'd love to hear from you!
