Look who's come to visit me!:

Yup, that's our favorite frugal mom, frugalmom, all the way from Illinois...
That's why I haven't posted in a couple days. I've been busy. Entertaining.
I'll post more tomorrow if Ms. Bossy lets me.


  1. OK frugalmom, who in the family works for the airlines?
    All this airfare isn't very frugal.
    I'm just sayin'

  2. Actually, Im thinking that this will be the only post. I thought we were heading out in the morning to go to goatgirl's house?

    Having a BFF that lives clear across the country adds a whole new meaning to the word frugal. Im just sayin.

  3. Ahh, I figured that's who Marcee was visiting when she told me that she was in Oregon. I agree with Goatgirl's comment. I'm just sayin...

  4. Wow aren't you all lucky, you've been able to spend lots of time together. I am waiting for the post that says she is moving your way. Have FUN!!!

  5. Ha Ha goatgirl youre a funny one!! Come on Ms Bossy, give her a minute will ya!!

  6. Ahhh, look at you guys, course I can see up your nose Danni. Hey Danni you REALLY need to change the color of your links. They are so hard to see. Hope you guys are having a blast. Can't wait to hear about that sourdough carrotcake.

  7. Hi you guys...
    What do ya mean.. entertaining? I thought you were going to make her work.. Isn't there donkey do in the barn or something that needs shoveling.?
    Hope your both havin a good time.. wish I was there with ya..although it don't look much warmer.. m

  8. I'm still shy a few thousand cans, I'd better start hittin the ditches.
    Just sittin here green with envy. ;-)

  9. Watch out! It looks like there is a crazy person roaming your woods...she sunk into your picture right there beside frugalmom!

  10. Have fun, you two! And, stay out of trouble....on second thought...get into lots of trouble and then tell us all about it. :o))

  11. lol, goatgirl. I was thinking the same thing. How fun to be able to travel like that!

    I hope you ladies are having a lovely time.

  12. Hi goatgirl - hadn't you heard? Flights from Illinois to Oregon have been free since September. Wa hooo! :-)

    Hi frugalmom - Get in the CAR, would you? We've got 2 hours and 53 minutes to drive if we're going to make it there in time to surprise goatgirl when she gets home from work.

    Hey Farmer Jen - I heard that marcee was thinking of changing her screen name from "frugalmom" to "fancyin the flyin' mom" :-)

    Hi country girl - I'm waiting for that post, too! That would be COOL. :-D

    Hey eve - Goatgirl *likes* funny, you know. :-)

    Yo mim - Have you ever in your life seen such big nostrils? I had NO idea. Regarding the links: DONE!
    (The sourdough carrot cake is on the agenda for today - whether we get it done is entirely another story. :-) )

    Hi Diane!! Yeah, there's not a whole lot of work going on these last couple days. Marc is a REALLY bad influence on me and I think you need to have a talk with her about that. :-)
    How fun that would be if you were here, too - I'm guessing that you, too, enjoy laughing until you cry and your nose starts to run? I'll try to get a picture of your daughter in this state for you. :-)

    Hey sugarcreekstuff - What? Really? A few thousand? That's so sad. We're going to have to come up with a new plan, I'm thinking. Do you play the lottery? :-)

    Hi warren - I know, right? We were laughing so hard when we first downloaded this picture onto my computer - now the truth is out about that insane, unbalanced glint that is constantly in my eye.

    Hi carolynn!! We will do our best to make you proud!

    Hi southern eccentric - Thanks for your comment! Hoping your extremely cold weather warms up soon!

    Hey sarah - Thank you! We are doing well, though I think we're both really wishing it was summer and 80 degrees right now! :-)

  13. Thanks so much for your caring post on my blog. I love yours...am adding it to my favorites. So great to meet a fellow Oregonian farmgirl also. Take care, Diana (frolicnfibers)

  14. Hey! I'm home from work...where are ya?

  15. That photo makes me laugh. You two are having too much fun. Enjoy!

  16. Even in what appears to be very cold , your smiles are very warm....thats it , I'm moving to Oregon , is it REALLY THAT much fun ?!?!?!?

  17. Just Look at all of them pearly whites. Looks like you both have mischief in mind.
    Wishing you both the best of times.

  18. Hello, Enjoyed visiting your blog. Love the pictures of all the animals. Mama and kids (goats) are adorable.

  19. LOL...great picture, you two have fun and stay out of trouble!

  20. Hi frolicnfibers (diana) - your blog looks wonderful. I'm sad it's such a difficult time for you - I simply can't imagine the horror of a mountain lion attack. :-(

    Hiya goatgirl - Can you believe it,

    Hey egghead - Of course, you're laughing at silly Marcee, right? ;-)

    Hey King!! - Why, yes, Oregon, quite simply, is *THAT* much fun! (Though Marcee would say it's not the place, it's the people). :-)

    Hi greywolf - We do NOT do mischief. We are wives and mothers, for pete's sake. :-)

    Hi Barbara! Thanks for your comment - I'm on my way over to check out your blog!

    Hi inadvertentfarmer - :-) We'll do our best. :-)

  21. Maybe they have a transporter machine, like on Star Trek??
    Have fun, y'all!

  22. Oh, I like that one. I'm gonna frame it! :)

  23. Can you believe it what? You were saying to goatgirl....can you believe it and then I think you got distracted.....Of course, I wasnt really sure...so, I just followed the trail of opened cupboard doors to find you......

    So, what were you saying now?

  24. Um, yeah...wow. I'm not sure what happened there. It was like I was in the middle of a sentence and got distra... (oh look...a butterfly...)

  25. YOU HAVE BUTTERFLIES!!! Time to change your banner!!!
