Friday Randomness...

Just some random things that are going on in my world.



1.  I put out my bird feeder..  But didn't have any taker...
Til yesterday.





2.  The Tetons National Park is only a half hour drive from where we are staying. 
On Wednesday we took the short drive to the park just to find out that the road was
closed to get in.  Don't know why it was closed, But I was bummed.





3.  So after making the u-turn at the Tetons National park we headed to Jackson Hole.
A pretty good back-up plan if I do say so myself.  We went to the Million Dollar Cowboy bar, 
where they have saddles as bar stools..  Not too comfy at all..
I guess I'm not a real Cowgirl after all. LOL.





4.  Made some yummy homemade Blue Berry muffins this morning.
OK.. I have to admit they were Betty Crocker Box mix.
But they were still yummy.





5. We are going to the Idaho State Fair Today.  It's a two hour drive for us
and I am hoping there are no roads closed along the way.
I have heard the food is fabulous. (That's what the locals are telling us.)
The problem I have is when I'm at a fair I can't
get past the Corn dog booth.  I LOVE them.
Not to mention the Kettle Corn.

Thanks so much for stopping by..

baking and bird feeders on the road you give a whole new to look living and travelling on the road. Such a beautiful shot of the bird...boxed or not you made them! I hate when things are closed. Nice shot of you in the not so comfortable saddle seat.

Sylvia said...

Oh my- I have always wanted to do both the Tetons & Jackson Hole. You are crossing things of my bucket list. I'm so thrilled for you.

I have heard the fair is fun- can't wait to see how it goes.

Great photos! We can't have bird feeders out, as there is a 600 pound bear in the neighborhood ripping them all down! He is a big sucker!

Aloha and TGIF!

Kristina said...

What a cute birdie!

Mary said...

I always love the elephant ears at fairs, but the corn dogs are yummy too.
Adorable chickadee! And i'd have been very bummed about the road being closed too!

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Saddles as bar stools? It looks awesome but I probably wouldn't fit it comfortable either! But I do really like that photo :)

Silvia(Barnie) said...

Beautiful photos again. Have a wonderful weekend :)

Tanya Breese said...

All gorgeous photos! I love spending time watching birds come to the feeder, so peaceful. Enjoy the fair!!

Robyn G said...

Linda,

I love your second photo. It is simple and says so much.

I like blueberries too. I tend to like them in something better than by themselves. Ice cream, muffins, salad ... yummy.

Have fun at the Idaho State Fair! My 2013 NE State Fair was great. There is a local steakhouse that had a food truck at the Fair. The first day I had a brisket sandwich, delicious. The next day I went for the pulled pork. It was out of this world good!

My Hubby is the State Fair Corn Dog eater in our family.

Carol Blackburn said...

Well, I could never sit on one of those saddles. And, did someone say corn dogs? OMG, I can almost smell them. Have a great time!

Ruth Kelly said...

I used to love eating corn dogs at the fair. I think it would be fun sitting on a saddle - at least you wouldn't get bucked off.

augcott said...

It sure sounds like you're having a wonderful time.
I agree with you .... those saddle stools do NOT look comfy! LOL

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Wonderful, and you look great on that saddle bar stool, forget about comfy!

Brandi said...

Sounds like an awesome adventure!

Lisa Gordon said...

What an adventure you are on!
The fair sounds wonderful.
Enjoy those corn dogs, my friend! xo.

Becca said...

Hope you had fun at the fair Linda! Oh my gosh! That first photo is of a chickadee! That's the bird I told you about that has built nests twice this past spring in our little chickadee bird house! I love those little birds!

Sue Lelli said...

Those saddle seats make a great photo but i don't think I'd like them either! LOVE your muffins - box mixes taste good, too!

Rose said...

I love that last shot...as for the barstools, maybe you needed a sidesaddle...haha...just trying to be funny.

Julie said...

Hello my lovely Linda, loving the photos, check out those saddles, brilliant! I'll be round later for one of tose buns and a coffee:).x

Lynnda said...

You look so sweet and happy Linda!!! Put a smile on me.... YUM YUM muffins!!.... Lovely photos as always.... big hugs my friend....x

Lisa Graham Art said...

Love the colors in that bird shot Linda! You look so pretty (and relaxed) in the restaurant (even if the stool was uncomfortable). :)

Nancy Claeys said...

I think the saddle stools would make me feel a bit, ahem, uncomfortable.

Have a funnel cake at the fair for me -- my favorite! :)

Nancy said...

I love the saddles for the bar stools but yea probably not that comfortable....

I hope you had fun at the fair and didn't get sick on the rides..

Pride In Photos said...

Oh this was very fun for me...saddles as a bar stool....this cowgirl would of been yelling...Giddy Up cowboy! Just too fun! Thanks for sharing...loved it.

Tracy said...

Hmmmm I'm hungry for blueberry muffins now. LOL. Wonder if the closure had anything to do with the elk???? The fair sounds like a good photo open. :-) Hugs!

W. Latane Barton said...

saddles for bar stools. What were they thinking. Not everyone's seat is made the same if you know what I mean!

Yummy pancakes. Wish I had some.

Ros Crawford said...

Stunning shots and I'm loving travelling with you ... Thanks so much for keeping us in touch ... Enjoy the fair!!

Audrey Pettit said...

That is a bummer about the park being closed, Linda! But I'm so glad you are finding so many other lovely things to do instead. How fun that bar sounds....although I wouldn't be comfortable in a saddle, either! ;)

Catherine said...

LOL! I am thinking you would indeed have to be a true cowgirl/boy to enjoy sitting on those restaurant stools! Haha! Love the little bird eating at your feeder. So cute!

Happy weekend Linda!
xo Catherine

Sandie Edwards said...

Wow, I can imagine the taker of your birdfeeder was a happy chappy. Love the photograph of you in the cowboy bar heheheh .. even if uncomfortable, its a pretty precious photograph. Love your images, they really are amazing.

unikorna said...

You are so cute and feminine and blonde :)....and so sexy on that saddle :)...

Charlene said...

Very cool bar!! I so so so love your pics Linda!!! Hugs!

Jacqueline said...

Thanks for sharing your world with us, Linda!

Jinny Newlin said...

So much fun, Linda! LOVE your backup plan ;), and hope you had fun at the fair!

Deanna said...

OMG...the Tetons National Park to the the Idaho State Fair all within driving distance...how awesome. And that fair food is bound to be good, never ate fair food that I didn't love!! And I hear ya about those saddle seats, not comfortable on a horse so why would they be comfortable at a bar/counter?? Have fun....big hugs!!

Lori said...

What a wonderful taker for your bird feeder! Love the bar, but I can see how the saddles might not be the best seating. Love your photos!
