After a nice visit with our son, we drove home and have been vegging out ever since in our own man cave/new room, watching NFL football on our 70" flat-screen T.V. (Go Patriots!)
While I sometimes get a bit footballed-out by Super Bowl time, I have to admit that football is one of the things I love about fall, my favorite season. Yesterday, we caught the Notre Dame-BYU game and watched our #5-ranked Irish win their 7th straight game of the season. (Go Irish!) It' so much more fun these days to watch football games in the comfort of our own home than it used to be. How did we ever survive all those years with a measly 32" screen?
|The players look so big on this thing, you feel like you're right there on the field with them!|
Although I'm a bit of a neatnik (which explains why I can't visit my single sons at their bachelor pads without breaking out the cleaning supplies), I love the beautiful messiness fall brings to the landscape. I took a long walk yesterday, and this is what the sidewalk on our street looks like at this time of year.
|Beautiful! I don't even feel the urge to get out my broom and dustpan!|
