TALU Tuesday (and Sandy)

First of all, we made it through hurricane Sandy just fine, though we were in her direct path. Lots of rain and wind, and a flooded barn, but no household damage or flooding or power loss. The pond filled to the point of overflowing its banks, and the barn got flooded, but more on that Friday.

But today it's Tuesday, so....

It's that time again!

Time for TALU Tuesday.

That's right, the Tuesday Archive Link-Up.

Time to pull your treasured old posts out of those cobwebby archives, dust them off, and give them new life where they will be seen and enjoyed by untold millions OK, thousands of viewers.

See, this link-up is hosted by several people, who, all together have thousands upon thousands of followers. So when you link your post up with this party? Your post will show up on all their blogs, to all of their followers.

All you've got to do is:

1) link up your post using the linky tool below.

2) visit the hosts and leave a comment to say hi.

3) and try to visit three or more of the blogs linked up and leave a comment. They'll all be doing the same, so it's like a giant hippie love fest. Bring your own flowers.

Oh and when you comment? Put in the secret code "TALU" (Tuesday Archive Link-Up) and then give a little wink so we'll all know what you're talking about.

Have fun!

Now here are your TALU hosts, wonderful gals every one....

Jennifer, author of I Am Not Superwoman

Jessica, author of Sugar In My Grits

Anne, author of Life On The Funny Farm

Angelica, author of My Daily Pages

Debbie, author of Wrinkled Mommy

  1. I just linked up for the first time and am visiting the other hosts now. I found your blog just recently and have liked reading about your children. I love that picture in the banner of your son holding the chicken. Every time I come back to this page I'm struck by it.

  2. Morning everyone! Hope you're all warm, safe and dry x
    I had a good ol' rootle round my archives and dug out one of old favourites, a post about raising Muscovy ducks.
    Stay safe
