Where have I been?


Here! Beauooootiful Colorado. After a long, long, long drive from New York, through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska and finally Colorado - we spent a week in Steamboat Springs. This was our view lakefront from our campsite. We stayed at Pearl Lake state park, it was wonderful. I finally finished my confederate gray sock on the ride out past miles and miles of cornfields. Then appropriately started my next pair of socks with Mountain Colors yarn.



I thought I would have gotten tons more knitting done on the drive, but I was completey distracted views around me - I didn't want to miss anything. We've wanted to drive cross country for years now, and finally decided that the girls were at a good age to try it. I just wanted to see it all - the Iowa corn fields, the wind farms, Nebraska flatlands, the rolling prairies of Eastern Colorado, then suddenly this...


I think only by driving it could we have felt how we did when we finally saw the mountains. My husband and I were both struck immediately by the feeling of what the pioneers must have thought and felt when they saw this ahead of them. Here we were in our GMC Envoy complete with portable DVD player to keep the girls from driving us crazy. I just love this country and am newly amazed by the hearty souls that had the nerve to do this in a covered wagon.

Beth, thanks for coming to visit. I'm sorry you are feeling so sad. I couldn't email you so I have left you a message on my blog. I should have done it here but I wrote it there and don't want to do it again.
love Jenny.

Hi matey and blog buddies, enjoyed the blog most interesting. Not sure how well you are doing in driving more traffic to your blog but If you are interested in promoting your site and getting more visitors (aren't we all??) I would definitely recommend the free Link Referral Program.

I have a website featuring mercedes benz hartford amongst other stuff and after trying every seo software/program on the net I got tipped off by an IT techi mate that the Link Referral Program was the best - more importantly it's free!!

The signup process was quick and before long my hits increased dramatically. Consequently my affiliate sales commissions and business sales went through the roof PLUS my website increased in google ranking which was an added bonus!!

If you didn't need this advice then I am sorry but you did have anonymous posting enabled on your blog. If anyone else has any good ideas for driving more traffic to blogs/websites then please share with your online business blog buddies. Ta ;-)
