Granny squares 2nd annual Happy Birthday Friendship/Comfortghan

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Im doing ok I guess. I go see the dr tomorrow so Ill let you all know how that goes. Baby is doing good, Its me thats having issues. Blood Pressure and all. But they put me on medicine for that so we will see how that goes. 

 

Glad the baby is doing well. Hope they get your blood pressure where it needs to be!

 

Hello everyone.

 

Tribble, I'm glad the squares arrived safely and that you like them.

 

I didn't get here yesterday because it turned in to a crazy bad day. When I got home my cat Mozart wasn't breathing right so I took him to the vet. The vet took x-rays and sent us to the animal hospital because there was fluid in Mozart's chest/lungs. The vet at the hospital looked at the x-rays and checked the cat, then he told it was going to be over a $1,000 and they may not be able to completely correct the problem as it was probably tumors, cancer, heart problem or proteins leaking from the liver. Mozart was 15 years old. So after a long discussion with the vet and talking with my dad I decided to have Mozart put to sleep. Needless to say I have done a lot of crying and it was a bit of a rough day. I went to work today and then drove to my daughter's for a long weekend. Tomorrow we are driving to Orlando to have lunch with friends we haven't seen in a couple of years. That's about it for me.

 

So sorry to hear about Mozart! It's so hard to say goodbye to the furries! My thoughts are with you.

Good morning to everyone.

 

Yarn_monkey: You have lots of projects on the burner. I bet the virus shawl came out lovely.

Bgs- Crazy weather for sure. The Christmas trees will turn out beautiful but stiffening can be annoying. I always get roped in to things so I feel your pain.

Tribble79- I bet little Tribble was especially happy with pizza.

Immafreek- Fingers are crossed for you.

Cshort- I am so sorry about your cat.

I'm up early but I did sleep an extra hour. Everyone else is still asleep so I am enjoying a quiet cup of coffee and some computer time. 

 

Holly, you are welcome, I'm glad the squares made a safe trip to their new home.

 

Thank you all for your kind words. I'm feeling a little better about my decision this morning, I was feeling kind of guilty about it yesterday but I know it was the best thing to do.

 

I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Dh is a member of a flotilla in the Coast Guard Auxiliary.  They do a lot more boating things on the coasts but being in the Midwest they primarily promote boating safety on the lakes and rivers along with a few other activities.  His flotilla decided that it was a worthy project  to provide packets with boating safety pamplets to Bass Pro to hand out when they sell a boat.  Dh offered to drop them off as we often drive by there. The first batch they stuffed at one of their meetings.  The second batch dh and I stuffed at home.  This last batch I stuffed by myselt.----so much for a "Flotilla" project.  

 

Had to go back to the winter coat today.  We had an appointment at a senior housing place today.  It's really close to 2 sisters and my dad's house and would be a much shorter drive for dh to work. I am just not ready to make that move yet.    I told the lady dh would like to have moved yesterday but I am having issues with giving up my stuff and was having to decide if I would rather have my stuff or dh and at  this point I was leaning towards my stuff.

Good Morning!

 

Katiebug, those are beautiful squares.

 

I slept in until 6:30 this morning. I'm enjoying my coffee and watching my grandson play, he woke up about 45 minutes after me. 

We had a wonderful time visiting with friends and enjoying the atmosphere and food of the Disney resorts, no parks for us right now. Hopefully we will be able to get seasonal passes again later this year, we really are Disney junkies  :lol . I'm feeling better emotionally and mentally today, all the laughing yesterday probably helped in those areas.

 

Ok, the little guy wants some chocolate milk so I better get going. Have a great day everyone.

So sorry about Mozart. I  know how bad it hurts to lose a furbaby. Prayers for comfort.

 

I have been so stressed it's not funny. With fighting for dad's surgery, taking him back and forth to all the appointments in OKC (I HATE driving in the city but my mom isn't very good at it and scares her so I get to) and then I found out my websites have been dropped from Google grrr. I've designed sites for over 15 yrs and never had a problem but they go pull changes and boom, mine's gone. So, after 3 days of a near nervous breakdown, I have it figured out I think.. I have to rebuild the sites on a different platform and mind you, I have near 100 of them. So, got to work on the first seven between trips to dad's. On a good note, he was finally approved and surgery is scheduled for Tuesday. He's been bedridden so long, he's losing muscle mass in his legs. This surgeon has been very thorough and I'm glad for that. It will be a minimum of 4 hrs but last one was 6 so we'll see. I'll take a big bag of yarn for sure. I've been working on NICU hats, booties for Gifts for the Unborn, scarves for the homeless Chase the Chill OK program at his dr appointments and just started my first c2c graphghan. I wish I could forget the websites and just crochet all day. lol

 

Anyway, I wanted to let you know why I'm not on here much for now but hopefully I'll get all this caught up and things back to normal soon. Hugs to everyone and stay warm.

I have not heard in a long time, from either of our two Feb birthday girls, so am thinking should better email them if you are going to send them any squares come feb i guess, see if they are still lookin for squares, or what. i dunno...

well, gotta run, i  left a baking sheet soaking and the cookies out, so will go and put them away soon, and talk to you all tomorrow!! Take care,a nd stay warm!! :ghug

 Not being able to get on ​my own device has become quite a pain to check in.

 ​So borrowing daughters computer to check in.

  ​I am feeling better and now my daughter has it. She is very miserable and had to go to the doctors.

 

 ​I hope everyone is doing okay and staying warm. We have a cold front coming in not looking forward to that.

​I have a couple things I need to complete then back on to get my squares done for the midnight blankets.

 

​I am accomplishing things so that's a plus.

Good Morning.

 

Sopo, I hope all works out and your dad's surgery goes well  :hug

 

owlvamp, I'm glad you're feeling bette, hope your daughter feels better soon.

 

I was awake early as usual and laid in bed listening to the crazy wind and rain for a while before my bladder decided I had to get up. So I am enjoying my coffee and some computer time and my grandson is playing on his ipad, guess it's a techie morning. My daughter, granddaughter and I had some girl time yesterday. We went shopping for fabric and yarn for clothes for my grandkids Disney bears. We did some shopping for my other daughter's baby shower, I think we have almost everything we need. Then we stopped for a special treat of frozen yogurt, yummy. Today is church and then we are baking cupcakes because my grandson wants strawberry cupcakes. I don't think we have any plans beyond that. I hope everyone has a great day.

Hi all. They dropped my BP med to once a day instead of twice, as it was working too well. My work is trying to figure out a new schedule so that I can work fewer hours per shift but make it up a few extra days per week. I'm just happy that they aren't shutting me down just yet. . I can't believe I only have 6-9 weeks left. Where has the time gone?

Dusting of snow here and roads may be a little icy but I am stuck going out this morning and am unable to wait to later so I guess I will have to be cautious.

Have a good day everyone.:)

So far today the temp has tripled-----we are up to 12 degrees from 4 and it might make it up to 22 which will be twice as warm as our high yesterday. The sun is shining and the cat is enjoying the sun spots on the living room rug.

I'm home safe and sound but not ready to go back to work tomorrow. I finished the Mickey costume for my grandson's bear before I left their house today. I posted a picture here: http://www.crochetville.com/community/topic/156247-mouse-wanna-be/. I was going to make a shirt and tuxedo type jacket for it but my grandson said he didn't want the fancy outfit. Have a great night.
