A week of Instagram: Bills, Hot Rollers and Cows

Crazy about those little square pictures. 

I love Instagram. For those of you who are wondering what this little word I am talking about is let me give a quick run down.

1. Instagram is a photo sharing social media site. You use an app on your phone to do it.
2. You can post, follow, like and comment of photos
3. You can add color filters (think of photoshop) to your photos
4. It is awesome and I am going to start posting a little recap each week using Instagram photos.

This was supper last night. Grown-up nachos. My side contains veggies and the Boy sans veggies. Had to get my protein fix before my run. That's right I am still sticking to the running. 

Tuesday was bill day at the farm. We paid a feed bill, vet bill, crop insurance bill, lumber bill and more. Good thing we sold a heifer this weekend. 

Have you noticed the Christmas stuff out in Walmart! I was really tempted to buy these recipe magazines. Some one said there are less than 100 days until Christmas. Not sure how I feel about that!

What do you do on a Thursday night while waiting for the laundry to finish. Dig out your old hot rollers, of course. These are from my high school days, and I used to use them almost everyday. In the mornings I would go feed cattle, come back in, throw these in, and while they were setting do my make-up and have breakfast. They curl didn't hold too well this time. I think I need a setting spray. 

Of course the week wouldn't be complete without cows. These were a few of the heifers we watched sell in Illinois. I posted a video of a different lot selling for $25,000. Yes, $25,000 for a cow

If you are on Instagram let me know, and you can find me by searching for @crystalcattle
p.s. Anyone notice you can't search for Instagram people via Twitter now. Annoying. 


  1. I hate bill day... Love when I send out bills (hate doing the work, but love knowing I have money coming in), but I hate paying them! So many expenses, wowza!

    Your hot roller hair turned out awesome. I should consider using mine again. They would probably save me a lot of time.

    1. I love that I can put them in and then finish getting ready. Saves more time than sitting there curling my hair.

  2. Oh how I remember the days of hot rollers! I never had the patience to keep them in long enough to have my hair stay curled! Now I just use a curling iron...and a really great styling mouse via L'Oreal silk curls. Doesn't leave your hair all weighted down and they have the same silk curls hair spray for finishing that's so light you'd never know it was in there!


  3. I haven't used my hot rollers in YEARS! May have to dig them out, blow off the dust and give it a try!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from all my readers. Hope you have a fabulous day.
