My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Sports and Today's Hoped Accomplishment

Blog Prompt: Since the Super Bowl is over, I would love to know what sports women really love to participate in or watch.

I like to watch women’s volleyball and softball because I don’t think women’s sports get enough attention. When I taught on the high school level we also supported the girl’s basketball team and the softball team. It always made me sad that the only supporters there were usually family members and not many teachers. We tended to support them for so many years that we became honorary parents and were invited to the annual awards banquet each year. I don’t watch a lot of sports on TV though because I get bored to easily but I like to watch these in real life.

Blog Prompt - One thing I want to accomplish TODAY is...

I hope to get a lot knitted on my prayer shawl today. I’m really enjoying the motion of knitting and find it very relaxing. I also need to get a lot done because our Loving Threads group meets this Sunday and I would like to turn it in. I also have a granny square prayer shawl in the making that I will finish after this one but I need to get this one done as soon as possible.

The darling daughter always wanted her high school to start a girls wrestling team. They actually tried it once (after she graduated); but as in so many girls sports there was not that much participation. I do have to say that the schools in our area do try to spend as much time and money on girls sports as they do boys.

Great prayer shawl :)

Can I come knit with you? I have a baby blanket for a friend that is almost done, and about 30 squares for a queen size blanket that I am making for us. I nned some motivators! I'd also love to learn more about knitting and crocheting and get into some charity projects.

I need some relaxation. Maybe I should pick up knitting again! Think I'll pick up my blanket I was making before the kids were born and bring it to my meeting next week to learn how to do it again.
