What an improvement, finally! The sun trying to peek out, soggy grounds finally getting a chance to dry out, and both morning coffee AND a late night dinner with various friends.
Despite a repeat trip to old V-town yesterday, the burning of gasoline was worth it, for my car is NOT in the shop (after another expensive repair experience last week) and I got to spend time with a couple of the neatest people I know. The fuzzy one, your favorite ferret and mine, was my early morning coffee companion, and I do believe that together we have solved the world's problems, so you all may rest easy. And dinner with a certain friend who is truly one-of-a-kind capped off the night, and lasted into the early morn.
Tonight, to work, then tomorrow, well, I suppose I will be doing what everybody else is doing....gluing my carcass to the easy chair in front of the big screen to watch Superbowl XLIV. Just me, dad, and grandmother, a small party of sorts, but a fine one nonetheless. In between, I may ride my new blue beauty, a Christmas gift from my father. Seems that for the first time in thirty years, he decided his little girl should have a bicycle for Christmas, and so purchased one, complete with a "SPOILED" license plate. Yep, he nailed that one correctly. Through proper diet, a candy ban placed by yours truly upon myself, and rides on that bike (and, yes, it IS true about never forgetting how to ride), I have lost five pounds since the new year, and am on my way.
How do YOU plan to spend Superbowl Sunday? Do you have a traditional party? Do you go to someone else's party? I wouldn't care about it myself, except for an opportunity to spend time with my father. I really don't care who wins, either. Later this year, football begins anew, and each team will once again have the opportunity to prove themselves. My money is on the Houston Texans for Superbowl XLV. What say you?
