Dishing It & Digging It Link Party 131

Welcome Bloggers to another week of Dishing It & Digging It Link party


It has been raining like crazy.  We definitely need the rain.  It is also cold, but not as cold as some of the states you all live in.  I am a California girl, so when it is cold, I feel it!

Our power went out for 18 hours, so we were roughing it a bit.  On top of that, our gas fireplace quit working and the repairman is not coming out until Friday.  It's a good thing, we have a  wood fireplace as a backup. We ended up  making coffee by boiling the water and using a paper towel as a filter.  needless to say, we were quite happy to get our power back on and enjoy our Jura coffee station.
This week, I shared

I also shared some new blog designs I recently did.

About Linda @ Life and Linda

Hello, welcome to LifeandLinda. I am from Northern California. I enjoy blogging, Designing Blogs, Decorating, cooking, entertaining, gardening and clogging. I hope you enjoy your visit.


  1. That's a long time to go without power for the rain you've been having. I think we've all become too comfortable with taking our way of living now for granted. I can remember having no air conditioning and lots of power outages as a child. We need to prepare ourselves better for what might be coming. They keep talking about global warming and catastrophic happenings and in reality, they are taking place around the world. I don't mean to be a Debbie Downer - your features are all quite lovely! I especially like the gingerbread house cookie and the crock pot sweet and sour pork loin! They both look so yummy! Thanks for hosting another fabulous party, Linda!

  2. Enjoyed the features, Linda. Thanks for hosting and have a great week.

  3. Linda, my comment went off before I had finished. Sorry you were without power for so long. That's not easy! We have our gas logs burning now. Today is wet and cold again. Take care.

  4. Linda, I'm sorry you were without power for so long!
    Thanks for hosting the great party. I enjoyed seeing all the features and your new blog designs.

  5. Happy your power's back on and I'm sure you all are enjoying the rain! Thank you for hosting this wonderful link party and including me, Linda!

  6. Thanks for hosting Linda! No power is no fun! We are all too spoiled with our electrical comforts :) Have a lovely week!

  7. Hi Linda! Thank you for hosting your party and I'm so glad I could join in today.
    Be a sweetie,

  8. Hi Linda, glad you got your power back. 18 hours is fairly long when you're roughing it!! We're going to have thunderstorms tonight. It's rumbling now so it's on the way. Lovely features. Have a great week ahead xo

  14. Hello Linda,

    So sorry you had to deal with a power outage for 18 hours. That is rough. Hopefully things will be back to normal by weeks end.

    Thank you for hosting each week.


  15. Hi Linda!
    I'm finally here, lol. So sorry to hear about your power. Thank goodness for good old fashioned wood heat. I love a wood burning fireplace but it sure is a lot of work on a regular basis!
    Let's chat next week. I'll email when I can squeeze some time. It's been a little nuts usual, lol. Lots of love to you, friend. xoxo
