Wednesdays Are Now Do-A-Good-Deed Day

Do-A-Good-Deed Day is to honor my mom who does great deeds every day of her life. For instance, she has put up with my smart ass for 23 years, even when I told her I was engaged at seventeen. (She has also put up with my two brothers and my sister. This alone should get her an award for tolerance.) But I really want to talk about is her day-to-day job. She runs Central Virginia Horse Rescue and it is almost her whole life.

What she does is she saves horses from being auctioned to slaughter houses. You might be asking how this is accomplished. She buys them and brings them home to the rescue. Then they are examined and treated by a vet. Believe it or not this too costs money. And after all of this, she feeds them and takes care of them and trains them (if they aren’t already trained) until the day someone decides to take them home. So today I’m going to ask you to help her however you can. Whether it’s donating $5 on paypal or looking into adopting a horse, everything is appreciated.

And if you can’t specifically help with CVHR, look locally to see if there are any dog, horse, or any kind of rescues that need your help.

Make sure you check out CVHR’s website.

And here’s one of the horses that is available for adoption.

Cheyenne is an 18 year old Arabian. She’s 14.3 hands. Please click on her picture to see more about her if you’re interested.

Breaking News!

My internet is connected at the new house! Which means…

The Blog is back! I’m going to do Monday’s post. And if you give me just a few minutes, I’m going to try something new out for Wednesday.


I have had a good, but rough weekend. We finally have all of our furniture here, but in the process I had my face smashed by a dresser, my leg cut, & a weird bruise on my hand.
Good news is my husband and I didn’t have one argument. That’s a huge deal as most couples who have moved together will know. Last time we moved he got angry with me and dropped a mattress down 3 flights of stairs and dragged a really nice armoire up a flight of concrete stairs.

As you can see, I’m so tired that I’m rambling. On top of that, I’m not even going to check my grammar.

Another Short One

I officially have ten followers AND none of them are my mother!

So I want to thank each of you for subscribing and would love to hear from you. I would also like to say, Mom, get on your game! Your usually my first subscriber and my first comment. Silly woman.

Alright, I suppose that’s enough procrastination. Back to packing I go.

A Quick Question

I’m busy moving this weekend,but hopefully it’ll only take a weekend. So I’ll definitely have a post by Tuesday. But what I want and need to know is: should I limit how many links I use in a particular post? What I’m basically asking is do you want a Top Ten of the week or just all of the posts I thought were good?

Also, do you have any blogs on writing/reading, photos, DIY/Crafting, or food that you think I should know about? Please share your thoughts with me so when I come back Sunday night I have an idea on how to improve this blog.
