Not psychic after all

A few days ago I said that I thought the Super Bowl would be a low-scoring game with a final tally of 13-10.  Today, with only 40 seconds left in the game, it was 14-10 and I was pretty amazed with myself.  Sure, that’s not exactly my prediction but it was pretty darn close.  Then a team scored with half a minute remaining and it ended 17-14, which means that I was just another regular person making up numbers.

I didn’t watch the game, just checking the score now and then.  I didn’t attend any football related events this week, either, even though the Big Game was here.

I spent the afternoon putzing around, doing some laundry and dishes and working on the latest quilt.  I have only two seams before the quilt top is pieced and I get to go to the fabric store to buy material for the border, batting, and backing.

My aunt & uncle recently gave me a calendar that I keep next to my desk featuring quilts from the 19th and early 20th centuries.  Those individuals worked by hand for years to make something so intricate and beautiful, passing it down through the generations.  This one will take maybe 20-25 hours altogether, and while it’s not family heirloom quality, I do think the recipients will enjoy it and find it useful.

    You’re really moving along on the quilt! It will be contemporary heirloom quality for sure!
    And sounds likely a jolly and fun design as well.
    Love, Mom

    Sue and I think it is great that you have put the calendar in a prominent location!!! Sometime, when you’re in Toledo, we’ll show you our collection of quilts. Sue uses the one you sent her every night while watching TV. Your workmanship is excellent and we know you’ll try new and different patterns as time goes along.

    The final score, while being a little higher, is still “low-scoring” and had a spread of three instead of four. So your spread was actually closer based on the last-minute shift!

    I didn’t watch much of the game, but I actually caught a few pieces of the scores via the World of Warcraft forums.
