Waiting for......well, the Super Bowl

As an Arizonan I am waiting for the Super Bowl. Our Cardinals finally get a chance at the BIG ONE! I am not a serious football fan. Either is my husband. But,.......well it's the Arizona Cardinals. I am really into basketball. I used to coach it. I love watching it live or on TV. Never bother me when March Madness comes around. I am glued to the TV, brackett in hand on the road to the final four. I love college ball and I cheer for the Phoenix Suns too. I see that former Sun, Kevin Johnson is now the mayor of Sacramento. Who would have thought as he scooted around being a great point guard.

Sports in general are interesting in a wacky way. We played them as children and like to watch them played as adults. We pay big buck for the pros to entertain us and follow the local high school on the local sports page. I don't think this blog entry is really making a point but, I digress.

I am waiting for the Super Bowl. I have lined up my recipes on the counter and gone over the ingredients. I have planned my menu and bought my paper plates. I have choosen my serving pieces and planned out my time. The game will start about 4:00 pm in AZ. I will clean my TV screen and set out the napkins and drink mixes and pull out my old Cardinals jersey.

Umm let's see there must be something else I need to do to get ready. Can't think what though.

Here is a good football scrapbook page I made for Type+writer at Jessica's . It's a good one for waiting.

I read this the other day, "Reindeer like to eat bananas", as long as they don't want to eat my Super Bowl snacks they are welcome to come on over.

OH MY GOSH wait, wait wait....I forgot to invite my friends.

Have a good one.

Happiest of New Years

Happy, Happy. Already the 10th of January. Time flies regardless if you are having fun or not! My youngest grandson will be 3 years old tomorrow....speaking of time flying. School has resumed (last week) and I'm still working my two days a week and liking it. I have continued with my water areobics classes three days aweek and have added a strength training class for beginners. Went to the first one this moring. I am somewhere way below beginner. The class lasts for one hour and will continue for three more saturdays....hope that I do.

While I'm thinking of it...here are a couple of pics of my grandsons at Christmas:

Well, I guess I'd better lie down and recover from my weight training class today. We did a lot of exercises some with weights, some without weights, some standing up and some on the floor. I did find out that I can't jump. Which makes this little piece of interesting info that I came across not true!

The elephant is the only mammal that can't jump. That needs to be amended: The elephant and fat old ladies are the only mannals that can't jump!

When I start feeling just too, too fat I think of this statistic: The earth weighs around 6,588,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo tons and I am thankful that I weigh a few tons less!

Have a good one.
