Wyoming Sunsets and Sunrises

This will mostly be eye candy blog entry.

Ā I am not a huge Wyoming fan its getting too cold for my

southern blood now. I wake and my body just aches

(side note I haven’t been taking my skinny fiber and hubby says he can tell lol oops)

BUT these sunsets and if I can rise early enough and get motivated

to drive out in the mornings the sunrises are equally gorgeous

the sun breaking the horizon at dawn is certainly a sight to behold.

you tell me which is better sunrises or sunsets?? Both perhaps?

Oh yes don’t forget an awesome lightening storm blocking the super blood moon!





LOL guess the truck needed a jumpstart





foggy sunrise


sunrise old homestead near Sundance WY




sunset on the tracks Rozet WY










As soon as our gloomy days pass that are now upon us I will be seeking out some

gorgeous fall looking locations to snap pics and share with y’all


Peanut Butter and Banana Wraps


This is a super easy peasy quick snack or lunch or whatever you decide to use it for and the kids will love you!!

Flour Tortilla that I spread peanut butter over. Sliced up some banana placed on top of the peanut butter sprinkled some mini chocolate chips drizzled a touch of honey rolled it up and placed along side the boys lunch today. They loved it and asked if I would make it again šŸ™‚

Score for this mama and it was simple quick cheap and I just happened to have all the ingredients on hand so no driving to town was required.


Treasure every moment with your spouse and family.

The happiest marriages have two people who both consistently place the other’s needs

and desires ahead of their own.

Where this is pretty true it also leads to a lot of problems.

However I had a good laugh the other night after several days

of tension between my husband and I.

Yep that is right we travel for his job to have a normal life in every way šŸ˜‰

Complete confusion and frustration was settling in

I felt there was no need to talk because I wasn’t being listened to

and he was having comebacks to anything I did say

that I felt were uncalled for and truly they were

but it was more because he thought I wasn’t listening to him

Here is the thing we were listening to each other

but not hearing each other there is a big difference.

He kept saying I am not perfect and I needed to listen to him

I was feeling like I needed him to listen to me and wasn’t hearing

what I had to say and was thinking of his best interest of the situation.

It finally clicked when he said I was the logical thinker of the relationship

and he is the quick right here and now in front of his face person

due to the nature of his job.

This is where I got my laugh

I have never in my life been accused of being the logical one

I have always been the fly by the seat of my pants girl.

My late husband use to get sooooo angry with me because that is how I was

and he was the logical -plan well in advance person of the relationship

I thought to myself this is some cruel joke from the beyond.

Lines of communication must remain open

just don’t forget to hear what is being spoken

There are no perfect husbands or wives just perfect moments along the way


Rozet Wyoming


Crossing the tracks there is almost always a coal train

setting ready to transport.

So this little quiet town is on the way to see Devils Tower

theĀ nation’s first National Monument.


Now typically we stay in the town in which hubbys work is based out of

but that town is an hour away and pretty much nothing there

so the crew like many companies stay in nearby town of Gillette.

But learning a few weeks ago that my allergies to pine has heightened

the past couple years and in Ā general cause me asthmatic like attacks

We ended up seeking a place middle of nowhere without pine trees

no easy task when in the northern regions of the US

First off there isn’t a decent rv park in town so trust me when I say its worth the

15 extra mile drive to Rozet WY.I will go more in depth of the available

RV parks in town in another blog.

Rozet was Founded in the 1890s, it was likely named for local populations of wild roses

That is all I can find so far on how this small town came to be.

Must be wrong time of year for the roses since it is late August.

But all that is really here is:

A school, a post office, bar/cafe, and a gentlemans club…and peace and quiet!

soooo when you forget to gas up while in town hopefully

you have enough to get back because of all things there is no gas pump!

Fridge Cool Fan


This nifty little fan is AMAZING!!

An RV fridge does not operate much like a typical house fridge.

First off make sure your rv is level as your rv fridge will not cool

unless you are nearly perfectly leveled out.

We found in the hotter times of year the air just simply

doesn’t move around enough so that the fridge can operate properly

food goes bad faster.

Circulate air inside your fridge to reduce food spoilage with this little fan

I personally wasn’t a believer in this little gadge as I couldn’t imagine how this

little thing could make things colder inside. This little thing runs on

2 D cell batteries and works for about 30 days.

It really helps maintain a more consistent temperature inside

EvenĀ in NM when temps were triplesĀ it stayed cold.

Now we are in WY where it has mostly been well…hmmm

anywhere from overnight lows into the 30s to daytime highs 60-80s.

and now that little fan is keeping things too cold

Fridge on the lowest setting the fins in the back are frozen along with my milk.

So thinking it might be time to shut it off at night and on cooler days.
