Joining Friendly Fill-ins hosted by McGuffy’s Reader and 15andmeowing. I enjoy having Fill-in fun on Friday and if you would like to join or check other Fill-in posts please click on the badge above. I am sliding in a bit late this Friday, something else had the nerve to get in the way of my morning blog happiness but here I go!
- The Winter Olympics are a wonderfully bright spot in a boring time of TV programming. Of course they are much more than that and I think a lot about how much we look forward to seeing all the athletes compete and enjoy the extra news and stories that are part of the programming. CH and I enjoyed watching Curling yesterday afternoon. I am fascinated by the sport of Curling and get a chuckle out of watching them do the sweeping with the brooms. There is a lot of intensity in the faces of the people who participate in curling… what can I say, I just love watching it.
- I think the most romantic movie (or book) is Desk Set with Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn. There are so many “most” romantic movies but I love older movies and I have always had a crush on Spencer Tracy. We watch Desk Set at Christmas every year. It is a tradition for us and is right up there with homemade noodles on the HAPPY meter.
- Recently, I had an odd experience when I was in the grocery store. I don’t have odd experiences like this so it left me with a mix of emotions. CH and I were food shopping and I turned to go down the aisle and there was a tiny figure that looked just like my Mom from the back. Her distinctive huge purse, hair, and a top and navy blue pants that were just what she would have worn. And the shoes… a pair of white tennies with what I assumed were pantyhose. My Mom never went out of the house without pantyhose on. I just wanted to go up to this lady and slip my hand in her hand. A few days later I had the radio on and Smokey Robinson’s song “Just to See Her” came on. Those of you who know me know what a big fan I am of Smokey Robinson. “Just to See Her” played on the radio when CH and I were making the hour drive to begin the service for her wake back in 1987. I looked out the window and tears rolled the whole drive. I am sure many of you have experienced something similar to this. It left me unsettled but comforted. CH often sees people who remind him of his Dad.
- I believe that love is complicated and way too deep a subject for this befuddled gal to get into today. I have lots to say about love but not gifted enough with words to get it right! Love can be such a tiny thought or action and that is the kind of love that amazes me the most. I have so much more to say and just can’t put it into words without getting all caught up in an emotional ramble.
