High Energy Days and One Last Mystery Photo Contest

Better Late than Never

At least that's what we tell ourselves when we show up late. I'm late with this post and you can maybe see the reason in this picture. The grandkids have been to visit and stay a few days. They can keep this grandmama hopping. They've gone home now, but they had lots of fun. 

Well, this front runner had fun until yesterday when she came down with some kind of bug. Sick, sick all day long. Couldn't even hold down ginger ale. Now I'm a little worried that her little bug may have hopped around to me. But so far I'm holding my tea down. She was a very brave kid. Suffering in silence mostly and handling being sick very well. But it did put a damper on her fun. Thank goodness we already had the promised fishing trip done the day before. And all the kids caught fish. She said she caught the most at seven and the boys caught five or six. I lost count, but I have the feeling she would have counted up more than the boys no matter. After all, she's their big sister and should catch the most. LOL. 

One More Blog Contest to Win a Book


So how about an easy mystery picture puzzle for the last blog contest? (Well, last right now. I'm sure I'll have more later.) Just leave a guess on what this is and you'll be entered in a drawing for your choice of one of my books. 

Remember the guess doesn't have to be right to get an entry. Any kind of comment will do, but it's fun to guess. And so can you tell me what this is?

Sunday's Winner

I guess it's time for me to tell you the winner from Sunday's "Tell me about your Dad" drawing. By the way, the Dad stories were fabulous. If you didn't read the comments on my Sunday post, then you should go back and read them. Those who shared about their dads really helped us get to know some great guys. Deadline for entries is 6 p.m. EST on Sunday June 28, 2015. You must be 18 to enter.

Oh yeah, you wanted to know the winner, didn't you? Drum roll please. And the winner of her choice of one of my books is Sharon M. I'll be in touch, Sharon. 

Thank you all for reading and for playing my flower (and Dad) games.

    1. Thanks for your guess, Karen. You can come back Sunday to see if you are right or a winner. I haven't caught the bug yet. I washed my hands a bunch while my granddaughter was here, but those little bugs can be merciless. So we'll see. Was planning an out of town trip. Again, I guess we'll see.

    1. Thanks for your guess, Kim. Right or wrong, it gives you an entry to maybe win a book. I'll announce the winner on Sunday night. But in case you do win, I would need a way to contact you. Facebook? E-mail? Need to know how.

  3. A bee on a flower. I agree. But, I'd say the flower is in the daisy family. :)

    1. Thanks, Bonnie, for the prayers. Even if I wasn't wanting to go somewhere, I'd appreciate prayer to escape a stomach bug. Hate those. It isn't book related, but family related. My sisters and I are going to see my daughter. Fun times.

  6. The picture is of a peach day lily with a bee . I'm sorry that your family caught the bug. Being sick is never any fun. Thanks for the chance to win.

    1. Great guess, Deana. Maybe right, maybe not. We'll see Sunday night. I was sorry my granddaughter had to get sick too. I don't get to see her often so it was sad that she couldn't enjoy one of the days of her visit.

    1. I didn't make this one very hard, Mary. The bee isn't too hard to guess. The flower is fooling a few people. Always good to hear from you.

    1. Thanks, Melanie. Actually I was only worried I'd catch my granddaughter's bug, but I lucked out and escaped. But poor girl. She was extra sick. But she's better now.
