Blogs of Envy

We all have those blogs we envy. You know, those blogs that make us drool and make a green cloud of envy come over us.

I have one of those such blogs. The Pioneer Woman . Even though her blog isn’t about fine art, I still drool. The reasons I like her blog are numerous. The first reason is her humor. She is able to find humor in normal day to day activities. (I can take a lesson from her on this.) Secondly, she cooks. I love to cook and she has easy recipes that I grew up with. Thirdly, her recipes are in color and step-by-step! I love step-by-step with photos. Did I mention she has a cookbook? And that she lives up the road from me about 30 miles? Fourthly, she is not afraid to confess little tid-bits (sometimes embarrassing moments) about her life. Fifth, she gives neat things away. Oh, there’s even more, but I’ll leave you with one more. She takes photos and turns them into true works of art with Photoshop. I’ll be taking online lessons with her about Photoshop. I need all the help I can get in that area.

What are some of the blogs you envy? I’d love to be introduced to them.

Valerie, a friend introduced me to Pioneer Woman a year or two ago, but I have not visited her site in awhile. You have reminded me that I should. I am amazed that she seems to do everything and yet keep up with a family. She is like the Martha Stewart of the prairie. I'm not like that at all, but I admire her.

Oh, how I envy that woman. Although some people say that about me sometimes too. She homeschools too. I don't.
