This was one of those weeks where by Wednesday I had lost track of the days and had to keep reminding myself the next day was Thursday and I had something to do. Was there good in the confusion? Let’s see,

  2. More basketball on TV.
  3. A break from basketball midweek meant real sleep to get ready for more basketball.
  4. I found a game to keep me occupied when I don’t feel like reading,
  5. Warm weather most of the week.
  6. Warm weather meant time reading on my front porch.
  7. Two free donuts this week.

  8. my daughter comes home today for a few days for spring break.

That’s all I can think of today.

Here is the recording I did Friday afternoon. Sort of a weekly recap.

  2. My daughter stayed home for the week since her school was on a one week Covid sequester.

Happy Valentine’s Day from icy Maryland. It’s time to find the good from the past week in Tater Town. Let’s see if I can remember the last week.

Super Bowl Sunday is here. I’ve been watching at home with just my family the past few years, so nothing will be different for me tonight. I hope the commercials are good since I have no real rooting interest in the game. That has nothing to do with my post, though. Let’s find the good from last week.

  1. We finally got a real snow last weekend. It took me having nowhere to go, but I still enjoyed seeing it.
  2. I didn’t really have to shovel.
  3. More books at the library.
  4. I hit 10,000 words on my jail thing I’m writing.
  5. Still got out for a walk everyday but the days it was actively snowing.
  6. Free burger Thursday night.
  7. We had two really nice days at the end of the week.
  8. Dinner with my son last night.
  9. More snow today.

It was a pretty uneventful week. I wrote, I read. I walked. I watched TV. I picked books up at the library. Every day is pretty much the same as the last one. I’m looking forward to spring when I will have more outside stuff to do.
