JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 10 :: holy crap that was a game

10 Jan

There are a lot of blissful New England Patriots fans tonight.

And all I can say is that game was stressful. I literally had to close my eyes because it was so difficult to watch at times. It was not a blissful experience until Julian Edelman threw a little surprise quarterback magic (wow!).

It’s amazing how a little leather ball can cause so much pain and suffering, stress and worry, and incredible bliss too. 

But I’m happy (and relieved) to see the Pats win and advance forward. Let the games really begin!

Speaking of games…

From yesterday’s Movie Trivia:  

What is the name of the first movie Clint Eastwood directed?
If you answered Play Misty For Me you were right!

More tomorrow.

GIFT DAY 020: winter and strolling on the beach

20 Jan

I woke up and spotted a little girl pushing a stroller on the beach.

She was adorable in pink. I was actually impressed with her ability to push the stroller wheels through the sand.

Just seeing her outside my window made me want to be outside playing in the sand too.

So we went outside in our pajamas, off to play our favorite game — The Search For Heart-Shaped Rocks.

We found a few good ones.

Including this BIG one in the picture below, taken with a bottle of wine we were given because of the name: “Beach House.”

It was 53 degrees this morning and gorgeous!

We climbed up to the top of the big rock on the beach and I drank my morning coffee. In my pajamas. On top of a rock!

There’s something wonderful about winter on the beach.

Very few people.

Lots of sand.

And random warm and sunny days. Sure, snow is coming tomorrow, but…

The warm weather gave us a moment to pause and reflect. To be thankful and to dream.

Speaking of dreams….

Tomorrow is Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Here’s to your dreams.

More tomorrow.

{And my gift of the day was a six-pack of beer for Brian. Had to share for the big game today. Go Pats!}
