Running with the Hulk for Blue Monday/Aw...Monday/Love is..

Those blue skies over Missouri made for an excellent photo. The Kansas Wesleyan XC Team had just taken first place in the Men's Race out of 20 teams. The ladies took 16th out of 20 teams. We were sad because the university website posted times and made zero mention of the KWU team that won the men's race! We thought that was tacky and rude. Nonetheless, we L O V E D seeing these young men and women run their best. The men did work so hard to take their first place spot and those ladies work every bit as hard and each race, 8k, is a huge improvement from the last race they ran. I thought I would share "R" for running at Ms. Jenny's and Alphabe Thursday. Nick is in the back row, toward the center with his cap on backward. One of the freshman on the men;s team took third place. There were 142 runners. Go Yotes!
My photo won; turn but my cute lil nephew Zander turned three and he had a Super Hero party today. Although we were unable to attend, all the kids were dressed s their favorite super hero. I bet you guessed who Zander was? Love this Hulk cake. 

I miss my dad every single day that goes by. He loved that Texas ten gallon cowboy hat. It looked nice with his blue shirt. Gosh this photo is from the 1970's. 

Is anyone ready for this? I Know I am not! But the books I will take. I am waiting for my newest book to arrive it is here:
I love Jan Karon and all the wonderful Mitford series that she has written. Her latest book even has a blue cover. I should have it Tuesday September 22nd. It was  pre-ordered thanks to my awesome
son Jeremy. She even added a blue cover for Sally and the Blue crew. I am hopeful she won't sell out to Hollywood like Debbie Macomber. I was so disappointed that she allowed her series of Cedar Cover books to be turned into a Hollywood "Peyton Place". Truly disappointed how the characters were changed according to Hollywood's stanards.
This is so funny, I had to share it with Sandee and everyone at Aw...Monday. I think  this kitty was quite unhappy that "someone" put poprocks in his litter pan!

My friend Lorna shared this one, isn't this kitty precious holding tightly to those she loves best? Pawsitively precious!
I am right there rooting with my honey for our Bronco football team and tonight, after we peeled two bushels of Pueblo and Anaheim chilies and put them into 22 quart bags, we sat down to watch a few minutes of the Seahawks/Greenbay game.  We love our football.

Always someone in need of prayer. I thought this image was perfect to share. Please pray for Noelle  as she flies to Spokane tomorrow for a two week training session with her new position at work.  Please pray for Larisa and Trace during this difficult time in the loss of their newborn son Caleb .

Enjoy a good week and please visit as many participates of each of these wonderful meme's this week. Thank you.

I'm not really a cat person but my husband is and he has 2 cats that he adores.
He loved the picture of the cat holding her 2 kittens I admit it is cute.
Have a great week.

Hi Anne,

Your post is full of good things today. I've read all of Karon's Mitford series and loved every one. I didn't know that she'd written another.

Thanks for making Blue Monday special.

Happy Blue Monday!

Big Karon and Macomber fan. I did not like the Cedar Cove TV series either.
Hope you enjoy your book when it comes. She is supposed to be at our Library for a signing soon.

Hmmm, I did not understand about the poprocks, (not sure what they are) but I absolutely loved the photo of the mommy cat holding her two babies. Just darling!

The loss of a child is devastating no matter what age they are. I'll say a prayer for that young couple. Good luck for your doaughter with her training for her new job.

You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
