This Week – Football

Highlights of the Week The Browns won their first playoff game against the Steelers! This was a huge deal around here and we even let Gage stay up to watch. Perhaps the most glorious first quarter of football I’ve ever seen (28-0).

I attended (Zoom) my first Library Friends board meeting this week where I just got to be a participant and not the President and it was so nice.

I’m still receiving Christmas cards and gifts in the mail.

Could’ve been better My Buckeyes were crushed in the National Championship 😦

I need to get my mojo back on the #50in50. I did manage to lose a pound this week, but my eating the last few days has not been good. My dad brought us my favorite pizza from back home and I scarfed down my half, no problem. It was worth it 🙂

Received in the mail Gage received the beautiful picture book Brian Wildsmith’s Animal Gallery from Jill. Love it!!

Movies Watched I watched one movie for my #Booked365 challenge. You can read how I compared the book and the movie here.

Powerful movie by Spike Lee.

Couldn’t hold a candle to the book.

On the TV My husband made me watch the first three episodes of The Witcher. It’s ok enough that I’ll continue since he loves it so much 🙂

Plans for the Weekend It’s cold and snowy. I’m envisioning a family game day, but we’ll see if my guys can convince to layer up and get out.

Last week’s rocket launch was so much fun. We even had a family who joined us at a distance. Of course, the second launch ended up with the rocket on the school roof, so our day was cut short. Still two rockets left to build.

    I’m not much of a football fan but, the hub is and will be watching the playoffs today after our walk. I’ve been debating about reading The Guest List or not as her previous book was a DNF for me. I do like the premise.

    Have a good week Stacy.

    My sons and my husband are all big sports folk, but I know little about it.

    It does feel good to go from president to participant. It’s nice to be a part of making good things happen.

    I need to see what you thought of Read! Read! Read! and Good Citizens.

    Glad the rockets were such a hit. Ours, now that I think about it, were bottle rockets. Still, they were great fun.

      I’m taking my time with Good Citizens because I’m reading a few pages and making notes every morning. And I love Read! Read! Read! so far, but we’re only reading a writing a few poems a day for school.

    Sorry about the football championship… my BIL was pretty disappointed, too. I enjoyed reading The Guest List and keep meaning to try her earlier book, The Hunting Party. A few friends said it’s even better. Have a good week!

    My husband thinks I would like the Witcher, but I haven’t watched it yet. We did watch Wonder finally today and enjoyed it. I can imagine it was nice to be part of the Library Friends meeting and not have to worry about presidential duties! I hope you have a great week, Stacy! For the first time my husband has the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday off tomorrow–not that we have anything planned, but it’s an extra day of no school and work so yay! Take care!

    I’m not a huge sports fan.. I watched the first episode of The witcher before I realized I’d read the book years ago. I didn’t love the episode so much that I need to see the rest, but if somebody from my family watches it, I won’t say no ! Have a great week !

  6. Gofita says:

    Good Morning, Midnight looks really good because I could see the goodness in the movie even though it didn’t quite work for me. I liked it and the story but I knew the book had to be better. I may give that one a go this spring! Glad it’s better than the movie and worth the read.
