CONTEST BEGINS TODAY

Well I know it's still Sunday, but since I start blogging so late in the day now, most of you won't see this until Monday anyway. So this blog will be the start of the MARCH BLOGAVERSARY CONTEST

Before I get to all the details etc. I thought I'd share a couple photos from this weekend

1st up is Captain Kangaroo, actually it's my husband in his mandatory security outfit, it's a wonderful, um, hideous, um you decide. maroon color. LOL. Last night while working a hockey game he saw a girl he went to high school with, she recognized him and said his name with a ??? He said yep, that's me, and she then said, and this cracked me up... "Man you got OLD!!!" to which my always in tune and sensitive supportive husband replied, "Yeah, so did you." OMG, he said to me afterwards, well what was I supposed to say??? OK anything but that. Geez. He said it's been 30 years since I've seen her, of course I look older. LOL.


Then we took Adam to Old McDonald's Saturday and his mommy joined us there. Maybe I had an ulterior motive, I wanted to see her with him, especially since she had the miscarriage. They seemed OK, but Angie has a history of depression and I thought this was a good way for me to evaluate the situation. Her mom is still in bad shape and has a tumor on her artery that is inoperable and being treated with not chemo or radiation, but this new treatment if it reduces the size of the tumor that would be great. If not she could go into a seizure and die and that could happen within 2 months. Very sad. Yet Angie and her mom are both still smoking cigarettes. I will never get that. Anyway here is a picture of Adam hugging his mommy


OK enough stalling, LOL... onto CONTEST STUFF

Today I will post a picture of some squares I am making for Victory Junction Gang, you need to guess how many squares I made this weekend (all pictured here) Post your guess in the comment section to receive an entry in this months contest. Your guess doesn't have to be correct but if you get it exactly then I will give you two entries.


As always if you refer a friend to my contest and they say you referred them you will get an entry if they comment and if you link this contest on your own blog you will be entered into a special referral prize awarded at the end of the month.

I have not decided if I will have a prize at the end of the month or one each week yet, still praying for direction there. I personally am leaning towards the weekly prizes. But want to wait on God's Word here.

I will post tomorrow what the prize will be, watch for it on my side bar.

Guess that's enough for today. Tomorrow will be here soon.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend, and hopefully you were able to get to church and get refreshed by the presence of God. I know I was. I am ready to face a new week. because I am sure I am not alone. Yep my God is the God of EVERYDAY. Amen.

OMG - he DOES look like CK!! Too funny, and I can just hear him, "Yeah, so do you" LOLOL. what the heck, she said it first, serves her right, but the CORRECT answer is of course, "Wow. You haven't changed a bit".

I guess 32 squares! I am trying to crochet some for you, but I'm am so slow. I'm pluggin' away!!

Lil Knitter said...

I'll guess 30.
And a high five to hubby for that answer...kinda rude of her to have said that. I mean really...30 yrs, she has to have aged too.
I hope things turn out well for Adam's mommy and her mom
Hugs!

* I'll post a link on my sidebar about your contest.

It is my pattern and is explained in the blogs. The graphs are not mine but the links to them are in the blogs. Thanks for visiting and for your kind words.

Hey AK! First my guess, and then some comments about that girl...

23 squares...

And honestly, I love Shelly's answer that your husband 'should have given'. but.. I think she deserved the answer she got. While women tend to be more in 'tune' with aging and more insulted at the idea... she should have considered that before opening her mouth... ;-) I love what your hubby said, I never think of such great retorts! As my mom used to say, if you can't stand the heat, don't step in the fire!'

Wildflower said...

I guess 50 squares.
