First of all, I would suggest not being sick, not having lessons to plan, and not having after-school meetings. Having a good night’s sleep helps. After that it’s a piece of cake.
Groceries purchased, weeds whacked, papers recycled, errands run, gift wrapped, house cleaned; I feel caught up for the first time in a month. I even had time to watch my favorite hockey team lose a game in the playoff semifinals. While knitting, of course. (I was knitting, not the team. Although they might as well have been.)
So my sixteen-year-old niece (in spite of living in Red Wings country) is playing Chelsea Dagger (the Black Hawks’ goal scoring song) every time she gives the dog a treat so the dog will learn to go nuts whenever she hears that song.
Brilliant. I love that girl.
Hockey’s back! Even the cat is watching. Go Penguins!
Oh, yeah, there’s a big football game today too. I like football okay, but don’t really care much about either of those teams. That game is mostly an excuse to gather with friends and eat.
Give me a good hat trick any day.
