October 26, 5 contest days left

Good Morning,
I am trying to type quiet as Adam is still asleep. He woke up crying at 5AM wanting to go home to Janmum (his other grandma)I got him back to sleep in my bed for now. He will go to my moms this afternoon to play with Hannah and Colin (my niece and nephew) and after that I guess I'll bring him home.

Yesterday I loaded him in the car and the two of us ventured out to the grocery store. I have not grocery shopped in well over 6 months, I always have someone else do it for me. I walked for an hour before I knew my limit had been reached and oxygen or not I needed to sit down somewhere quick. So I didn't get everything I wanted/needed but I did get a few things the baby wanted. The original goal was hot dogs and ice cream cones, yep that's what he had been asking me for before we left. Funny by the time we got to the register he was more concerned with the box of 100 calorie cupcakes I bought and a bottle of ketchup. Too funny.

I meant to post this yesterday and well Adam was awake and I totally forgot, but I was blog hoping on Wednesday and found another person having a contest. All you need to do is post for that one too, so I wanted to make sure you all knew about it so you could go there. Here is the link...

It's a pretty inspirational blog too, I am sure you will be blessed by it.

Yesterday there was a question about Close Knit Hugs, Maggie (the founder)is happy to accept any squares regardless of their size or color, we can work around anything. She prefers if they are about 8". They can be crocheted or knitted, and any patterns are wonderful. When I crochet a square I usually use an I hook... knitting can vary depending on the pattern, but I'd say maybe a #8 knitting needle or whatever you like the best, really. I also believe she has templates and stuff linked on their website as well.

Onto my contest for today...Originally I had planned on a "Guess" picture but I didn't get a chance to upload pictures yet, so I guess that's going to have to wait until tomorrow... so you get tomorrows plan today. LOL... another CAPTION, aren't you thrilled???

BELOW IS A PICTURE I FOUND ON THE INTERNET... SEE IF YOU CAN THINK UP A CAPTION FOR THIS ONE. IT'S A HOOT.

Thank you all for playing as often as you do, it really brightens my spirit when I see your comments. God has blessed me with some pretty awesome friends on the Internet, as well as in my real life too. It's silly when I let things get me down, I have so so so much to be thankful for, and I have more blessings and miracles in my life then I can count.

Remember to thank god today for being the I AM in your life too.

My husband, the jolly green giant asked me to hold these for him while he went potty!

Hope you had a great day Kathy! I was so busy with Becca today that the day just flew by!! My knee was so sore this morning and it didn't improve as the day progressed. I'm planning on going to sit down after this with my leg up. Now is my relaxing time.

Tomorrow is going to be busy also. Denise wants me to go to the art festival up in Ocala with her again this year. We had a great time last year, and even got our pic in the Ocala magazine!

I'm also supposed to go try on period outfits to wear at the Historical Society dinner tomorrow evening and also as we great the next round of the historical and ghost tours that the chamber sponsored. Somewhere in there, I have to make 2 gallons of tea!

Hope the rain isn't too bad tomorrow since I have all of this going on!

Have a great evening!
