Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.

Super Bowl XLI is History

After a lackluster season of football loyalty at my house, my family and I decided to watch the Super Bowl with Koalagirl15 and her clan. We brought chili. They made mini quesadillas with chips and salsa, and bananas foster for dessert (yum). Good friends. Good food. Good game, especially that opening kick return!!!

Speaking of that opening play, I did not realize that it was a “first” in Super Bowl history, or so I hear. Some other "firsts" from Super Bowl XLI:

- the first game to be won by a black coach
- the first game to be won by the Indianapolis Colts
- the first to have rain
- the first to have four turnovers in the first quarter

All in all, an historic game. Of course, I am waiting for another historic game --- when the Vikings actually win the Super Bowl.

We'll celebrate grandly when the Vikings win!

Thanks for the chili- it was YUMMY!

I caught up on the commercials I missed last night. The K-Fed one was pretty funny. The BrokeBack Snickers one was downright scary!
