And So It Begins…
With coffee in hand I will start this cloudy day. It is a busy morning that will be moving faster than the speed of sound in the next hour. Planning and practices have led up to this day with two major items on the schedule from 9-11 this morning. It starts with a planning meeting for a major Simulcast next weekend that will be held at my church. I can’t wait for this event! I will share with you next week about this! At 10 my youngest takes the court with his basketball team in their first game of the season. We will come home and have lunch and do a few chores before the college football games, scheduled for today, invade our living room. Don’t get me wrong…I live for days like this one….sports, family, weekend cleaning…but who wouldn’t want to be somewhere else…with fewer interruptions?
Alas…the proverbial chips did not fall in my favor!
I will splurge a bit and stop by my favorite watering hole, on the way to church, and pick up some energy in a cup! (Starbucks…yep, yep yep!) I will have a smile on my face and be lucky enough to spend time with friends that I typically do not see except for Sundays. I will also be able to spend a little one on one time with a dear, sweet, peas in a pod friend whose son is also playing basketball at the same time as mine. “I wonder if we will be watching the game!”
It’s the weekend…and I do love a good…sports filled weekend! “I hope I feel this way in 8 weeks!”
What do you enjoy doing on your weekends? I will be quiet now…get some rest and relaxation…we all deserve that! Have a great day!
Super Bowl time has come once again. The game will be viewed all across the nation in a variety of ways. Families and friends will gather clothed in team colors and eat game day snacks. They will cheer for their team and coach from this side of the screen. “To bad the coach and players cannot hear our suggestions…HeHe!”. They have enough on their mind without having every American telling them what to do. “Gotta Love the Super Bowl”
My family will gather together after preparing the Hot Wings and JoJos. I will make the Pigs&Blankets today and complete the snack table with Meat and Cheese Tray and Queso Dip and Brownie Bites. This feast of party goodies will replace the typical dinner. “Let the grazing begin!”
The boys are excited about the game and the line has been drawn in the sand. We are divided this year and both teams are being cheered for. Competitive in nature but not aggressive…these are not who we hoped would play in the Super Bowl. “There is always next year!”
We also look forward to the commercials…the boys will load their plates during the game and watch the commercials. We will pick our favorites and boo the bad ones. “Gotta Love the Super Bowl” The Half-Time Show will be watched, unless it reminds us of the past several years, and enjoyed as we prepare for the second half of the game. The fierce warriors will find their places and fall in line. The “I Dare You” glances bounce between the armor girded men. The coded speech mixed with grunts and groans will progress up and down the field.
What color will you be wearing? Who are you pulling for? Are you watching with family and/or friends? What snacks will you enjoy during the game? I hope your game day experience is a good one! “Gotta Love the Super Bowl”
