A Very Happy Sunday
Don’t get me wrong, I admire elegance and have an appreciation of the finer things in life. But to me, beauty lies in simplicity. ~ Mark Hyman
For the last seven months, life has been more than a little complicated for most of us. But today, I decided to have a really simple and happy day. I started off the morning by Zooming with my littlest nieces and nephews, who were of course completely jacked up since it was the day after Halloween. They were especially excited to show me the creepy fingers they had for their Halloween costumes. I was also thrilled to have my littlest niece, not quite two, on the Zoom. At one point my nephews wanted me to show them apartment and every time I was off screen I would hear her say to her dad, “Uncle Mike?” I love that she was worried I had gone away. Before that she also invented a new game, Zoom Peekaboo, she would scrunch down under the screen and when I would say, “where is she?” She would pop up laughing and yelling.
Since they are on the east coast, the call was early and so I waited on breakfast until after the call. I love southern biscuits and gravy and although biscuits are not on menu at the moment, I made a nice pot of sausage gravy and eggs for breakfast and it was wonderful. And after a fabulous breakfast I sat down to watch my favorite football team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are having a great year, 6-0 coming into today’s game against their biggest rival, the Baltimore Ravens who were 5-1. So it was a huge game for the rivalry, for first place in the division and one of the best records in football.
It was a typical Steeler/Ravens game, the game had five lead changes, and game down to the final moments. Happily for me, the Steelers pulled out a four point victory and now at 7-0 have tied the best starting record in team history and have the best record in the NFL.
I followed up the game with a little bit of writing, getting my blogs for the week completed and then headed out for a nice walk along the ocean.
Today is also one of my favorite days of the year, Dios de La Muertos (Day of the Dead). So I took some time just to admire the Day of the Dead art that I own, this one is my favorite.
Finally I came home to make a nice beef stew for dinner, it was delicious, leftover Halloween candy for desert topped it off nicely. All in all just a simple and happy day filled with things I love and love to do, something we all need from time to time. Have a happy day my friends. ~ Rev Kane
