This is a little wall hanging which I designed and made a couple of years ago, which was returned to me. Now that it has come home after it's journeys here and there, it has found a spot on my wall. You all know how I feel about home......now I'm pondering if I should re brand this pattern and make it a Timeless Traditions pattern. I will think on it for a bit.
Now for the celebration.......the University of Utah beat number 4 ranked Stanford on Saturday, and I was at the game with my husband. This was an upset, as Stanford was picked to beat by 9 points. Let me tell you why I find football games so enjoyable. Of course, I like the home team to win, but it is much more than that. First of all we arrive early, because parking is always a problem. Because we arrive early, this gives me more time to patrol all of the food vendors and decide what to eat first. I started with a barbecue pork sandwich, savoring every bite. After eating savory I needed something sweet so I ate the raisin oatmeal cookie which I had snuck in. I was satisfied for the moment and was ready to get into the game. We sit in the middle of a rowdy boisterous crowd who has a self appointed cheerleader who leads us all in cheers....great fun. At half time with a 2 score lead, I had worked up an appetite and fought the crowds to get in line for the famous cowboy corn dog on a stick. All I can say about that is yummmm and it is worth standing in line for. It was getting a bit chilly as the sun had gone down so the hot chocolate certainly looked tempting, and it would be so comforting to wrap my hands around a steaming cup of it, so I picked up a cup.....now I'm back to my seat for the second half..........there wasn't much time to enjoy the eats, because our cheerleader had us back into action. It was a nail biter down to the very end, and it sure was fun!
I'll end this play by play account with a couple of lines from a book I enjoyed called 'Ava's Man'. It is a story which the author Rick Bragg writes about his grandfather. A very good read. "Some people act old as if they are practicing for their last years". And "There are no lulls in the adventure of living". Live life fully today!
