There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~Anaïs Nin

53 Days and Counting...

     Something is amiss.  I woke up this morning, went about my typical Sunday… church, Starbucks, grocery store, returned home to serve up lunch, then hit the remote and tuned in to…golf?

     The first Sunday after the Super Bowl is somewhat of a downer.  Now I am not the diehard fan my husband is, but I enjoy the routine of Sunday afternoon football.  Scott and I are creatures of habit.  Settling into the basement to watch the games, and call the plays from our armchairs, this is how we spend our weekends in the winter. 

     Knowing that millions of Americans are doing the same thing, I feel a sense of community.   There is something about the wide world of sports, and particularly football, that’s just plain fun.  The competition, the commercials, the back stories, all bringing excitement to an otherwise long, cold and snowy winter.

     Yes,  all good things must come to an end.  But time marches on, each day bringing us closer to spring.  The budding of leaves on the trees, crocuses peaking through the last remnants of snow, and best of all…Opening Day.


  1. Haha, while I can't relate to the sports bit I can definitely relate to eagerly awaiting the beautiful, blooming arrival of spring!:) I am so looking forward to sunshine and flowers...we are having a big snowstorm here today but I can dream right?:)

    Have a wonderful week and a very happy Valentine's Day Deborah!!

  2. I am totally with you about the Sunday afternoon football thing...since I love sports and football being one of my favorites I am missing it too.

    I am so awaiting Spring...we have had warm weather lately and the little's are enjoying being outside playing but you should see how soaking wet they are when they come in...we are going to have one messy wet muddy spring.

    Happy Monday! XX
