Cowboy Love 01

Monday, Monday!

Happy Monday everyone!  How’s September been treating you so far?  Same ol’ same ol’ here but that’s okay, too.  Better the devil you know, right?

Not sure if there are any tennis fans in our midst but the upset in the Women’s final on Saturday was something to see.  Well, if you could see anything around my kitten who thinks she’s helping the players.  *sigh*  Canada, you have yourselves a winner, with or without Violet’s aid.


1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: upset.  Give me 100 words or a graphic and I’ll reward you with my undying love and admiration. 

2. Last week’s challenges:

3. Big Buddy 30%!  How are you doing so far this month?  The monthly challenge has helped me stay on track, that’s for sure.

Weekend Challenge Schedule July 2019-Jan 2020

I know it's taken me forever, but here's the schedule for the second half of 2019 at last! Apologies for the extreme lateness, everyone.

As most of you know, this year the Weekend Challenge prompts will be open to fill (and linked back to the Weekend Challenge post) until Thursday of the following week. The challenge post will go up on Friday (or Saturday morning at the latest); the Weekend Challenge host will advise what you need to do to get prompts & how to fill them, and you may even get a reward, should your host be so generous!

And if anyone else wants to volunteer as back-up (in case someone has to change at the last minute) let me know in a comment here too!

Thank you all again for volunteering! ;-)
