Mango Minster is Now Open

 May 2010 010

Calling all voters!  The time is NOW… head over to Mango Minster and vote TODAY for Sissy.  We’ll be mentioning our favorite candidate in most categories as we go along, just in case you’re inclined to vote all week.  Sissy has an early lead and has already composed a very thoughtful – for her – post.

We had a GREAT weekend.  Saturday, my cousin and some friends of hers came up for a birthday tour of the station.  I am shocked that TWO 13 year old girls with birthdays this month want to be firefighters, but of course, we were glad to show them around.  Chief Knight also gave them a ride in the engine, and then they (all!) helped us wash the bay floor.  Yesterday, like a lot of the rest of you, we watched the Super Bowl. 

January 2011 009And I think I’m almost half-way on the baby blanket I’d hoped to finish by mid-January.  Hem.  I had to move to a 60″ needle last night.  Baby should be here, but I haven’t heard.  If it’s a little girl, I’m going to embroidery hot PANK flowers on top.  If it’s a boy, I might do a blue crochet border… or not.

How was your weekend?

    I voted!

    This was a weekend of Pine Wood derby…but we didn’t get to take the cars home. They’ll give them back on Wednesday at the awards night.

    And…I was back to taking some pain meds for my back.

    We played in the snow and ate lots of treats. Mom did something unusual called housework. That was no fun for anyone.

    Go Sissy! You need your own personal cheer squad.

    That blanket will be fabulous! Love the idea of pank flowers. If it’s a boy you could add a blue sailboat – or puppy outline. Are you decreasing yet? g

    Happy birthday to those girls, and happy coming birth-day to that baby.

  7. Nothing to write about my weekend…but rest assured, Misty voted for Sissy, and as soon as Daddy gets on his, Sasha will get her vote in, too.

    My vote has been cast! She’s only trailing by one now.

    We had a good weekend; very low-key and relaxed. I did manage to fit some spinning in, and actually completed something!!!

    Restful. I’m happy I got some new running shoes–the other ones were screwing up my calves!

    I like the pattern for the blanket. Baby’s mom will appreciate the blanket regardless of flowers or border, I promise!

    Super Bowl here, too. Off to vote for Sissy!

    The blanket is the perfect color . LOoks so sooo soft. Cannot wait to see it finished.

  14. Louise says:

    My vote is in for Sissy Too!

    We had a quiet weekend around here. Marion crocheted two baby sets; sweaters, blankets, and hats. So cute. I spent Saturday at an auction and Sunday, rearranging the den. I did squeeze in Wegman’s on Sunday. Sorry Chan, no frosting. I’m hitting Giant this week; I’ll try again:)

    It sounds like you had a delightful weekend!

    I’m glad you had a good weekend! We had another birthday party on Saturday and had fun with Nathan’s family.

    You are further along on your blanket than I am on the several I NEED to get finished. GAH

    I didn’t get to vote!!! I didn’t realize it was only open for one day. Poo! I plead insanity from this past weekend.

    Love that the two 13 yr old girls want to be FFs. That’s awesome!
