Our host is Gattina. Come join us and tell us what YOU did this past weekend! After all, you never know when you will need an alibi!
The weekend seemed to fly by quite fast. Between working, and caring for Greta, who has been ill with Cystitis, my days seem to be very long. On Sunday I simply refused to do all that much. I did computer stuff, with Greta by my side, and then, once the venison (a gift from a friend) had thawed, I worked chopping, peeling, sauteing, and then slow cooking the Venison Stew in the Dutch Oven.
Football finally started at 3 o’clock, after a rumored start of 1:30. It brought back a time in my life when I had been living near Norwood Massachusetts and the home of The New England Patriots.
I became quite ill after the birth of my second child, and needed to have surgery. The hospital was quite full that November and I roomed with a wonderful woman. Her husband played for the team. They were such nice people and she was there having a baby.
She delivered a boy during this time, and today when I looked it up I saw that this little baby went on to have a career in the NFL! He is now retired. I think the thing that made me happy was that this little baby had grown up healthy and happy, and his parents were also still happily married.
I recalled these people for many reasons. Their kindness, their generosity (they sent me flowers) and the fact that they were just like me and you, despite the fact that her husband was a sports hero.
Have a great week Everyone!
