Outside My Window…
Mercy. I have so much to do to get the yard ready for spring,
and I am running late.
Note: This is the point where I like to act like the farmer’s daughter that I am
and I act like- feel like there is a sense of urgency.
As in I need to get my crop in the ground.
But first, I need to clean.Leaves.
Millions of leaves.
Leaves with a sense of humor.
Leaves that laugh behind your back as you sweep and rake and sweep some more.
And so while watching the Super Bowl, I am making my gardening to do list.
Number one on the list?
From the kitchen our Super Bowl supper is
my husband’s brisket,
my husband’s pinto beans,
and salad (my contribution).
Our appetizer was guacamole and tortilla chips.
I Am Thinking…
I have become a scaredy cat.
I don’t like being frightened
at the movies or watching television.
I blame my brother.
Growing up he was always jumping out from behind a door to scare me.
I Am Thankful For…
Everything is a riddle with me.
I am reading….
You are all so smart and talented.
I am going in about 5 minutes… to watch the Super Bowl kick-off.
One of my favorite things to do during all of the pre-game shows is
ask my husband questions-
especially about the NFL players from the past who are interviewed.
His answers are almost in a whisper as he remembers their greatness.
I am wearing…
it doesn’t matter.
I just watched the Sandy Hook Elementary choir sing America the Beautiful
to start the Super Bowl.
