Monday Mumblings on March 1st

We find ourselves at Monday again. But it is a new month...March. It is the third month of the year and in three months, the boys will be counting down the days to their summer vacations. Oops, let's stop looking toward the future and take one day at a time, for I don't want to rush things!

Hope all had a nice weekend. Ours, like always, were filled with hockey activities. Between the boys' practices and games, we also had the addition of watching the bronze and gold medal rounds of hockey on the TV. They were all very good games, and while it is natural to root for USA, we weren't disappointed in the outcome.

I found it somewhat hard to have a favorite, when the hockey teams were made up of NHL players from all teams in the league. One of Robert's favorite players was on the Slovakia he was rooting for that team for a while. Some of the NHL Shark players are on the Canada team, so Matthew was hoping that they would do well. I know that these players, the NHL players who play this sport for a living have every right to participate in the Olympics, I just wish that they weren't "All Star" teams. It would be nice to use the Olympic hockey teams as a showcase for up and coming young hockey players. Oh, one asked my opinion.

On the subject of stitching, watching the olympics did give me an opportunity to sit and stitch; so I have been making good progress on the model I am stitching for CindyMae and hoping to have that done in the next couple of days so that I can start on my ornament, Lizzie Kate and season exchanges...finish my sisters "A Walk in the Park"...and maybe give MW a peek of sunlight. Hopefully I will have a project that I can show and tell :)

Take care blog friend! May your Monday bring much happiness and joy!
Remember...Live, Laugh, Love and Stitch Often!

Oh I so agree with you on the hockey thing! It would be so nice for the Olympics to showcase young talent!!

I remember when the Olympics were for the amature atheletes, not the pros. I miss those days too.

The US team had a good idea with the playing the younger guys rather than showcasing the obvious but good for the Canadian team. woooo hooo. Gald you were able to stitch while watching.
Be always in stitches.

Yeah, the boys wish the time would fly by, but the sadness that occurs when they become young adults and they don't seem to need you as you'd like them too is what I'm struggling with! Love every minute if possible!
