Wednesday- Washing away Worries

I swear thinking of the title for the days blog is the hardest part about blogging. I try never to repeat them and I tell you I am running out of ideas fast, LOL. Guess that's the price to pay for blogging everyday.

As for the situation with our dog Lady, she is still here. I have some very awesome friends who are very involved with dog rescue and the shelters etc. and one of them has offered to come and get Lady and see what can be done and handle it for me. This is a huge relief. Not sure when it will happen but I feel all the worries washing away.

I mentioned yesterday that I received some yarn I won in a contest a few months ago. This picture doesn't do it justice but I thought I'd share it with you anyway. It's a lovely shade of purple with a pink sparkle like tinsel in some spots. Does that make sense? Not sure exactly what kind of yarn it is, I am new to knowing that, up until a few years ago I thought acrylic was all there was, lol. It might be wool. I think maybe I have enough to make a scarf, but not sure.



OK having a HUGE thunderstorm right now but hopefully I can finish this blog before the power or Internet goes out. Looks pretty dark out the window.

CONTEST STUFF

WEDNESDAY IS RIDDLE DAY


I am something that everyone would love to get
Some have gotten some already and some not yet
It's always fun when you see it's for you
It will make you smile even if you are blue
This may not make you rich or popular or give you fame
But regardless we all want one just the same
If you want it though you must do something first
Not trying at all would just be the worst
But when you do there will be a light in your eyes
When you discover you are the winner of me a contest ?????


OK there you go... post in the comment section your guess to the answer to this riddle and receive another entry in this weeks contest. As always, your answer does not need to be correct you just need to try. Or if you don't want to try, no problem, just leave a comment.



Don't forget to send your friends over to play too, and remember if you have this contest linked on your blog you receive and extra entry each week.

I guess that's it for me today. I actually made something with yarn yesterday, maybe I can repeat it again today and make something else. Pictures to follow this weekend.

Have a wonderful day, let God wash away all your worries, He loves to carry them for you because He can.

could it be "prize"?
All the storms passed us. Now you have them. I'm glad the humidity and heat are gone, though now I don't have a reason to go into my bedroom and knit (only room with AC).

I'm glad someone is there to help you with Lady.

I love that yarn!

I have already been the lucky recipient of one of yours - prize that is!

Katie O said...

Love the yarn. I am a PRIZE!! woot!

sailorcross said...

The answer has to be prize, and I won one already--just beautiful. The very first prize I have ever won!!

Your yarn is lovely, and I think there is enough to make a scarf. I made one last winter for a friend, and I only used two hanks.

I'm glad you have someone to help you with Lady. A friend is always there for you.

Prize!! I'm happy to hear that the burden is getting lighter for you as far as your dog is concerned.

I went to my craft club today and announced that we're having a craft fair on Nov.1. Everyone seemed happy. Want to have a table? hehe

Talk to you tomorrow!!

smariek said...

I'd have to say "prize" which rhymes with "eyes".

Mimi aka pz5wjj said...

Well, I think it's prize as well -- but I think Love and Smile are good answers too!
