It's almost 5pm and
I'm just getting around to sharing my
but better late than never, right?
So ... herein are my Evening Musings
that methinks I'll link with Wordful Wednesday at
and Outdoor Wednesday too ;-)
in the morning. I'm not used to getting myself ready and out of the house so early any more. Of course Molly wasn't happy to miss her morning walk but we enjoyed walking together this afternoon when I returned home.
I spent considerable time over the last 3 days pruning my citrus trees and (as a result) my body aches. Guess it would have been smart to hire a tree trimmer to do this task, especially since I'm not finished yet.
That said, I've done it for decades and paying someone to do it seemed like an unnecessary expense, but perhaps I'll let someone else do it next year ... or not.
so I knew I needed to get to work on it right away.
so I had to be careful what I cut back.
but I'm certainly curious and would like to know.
at Small Reflections for Macro Monday on February 8th ...
Sigh ... so much for the best laid plans going awry ...
A few minutes ago I finished viewing the long programs ... and (although their performance wasn't perfect) I'm delighted they secured the Gold Medal. What a happy ending for their 18 year journey.
In addition I'm happy for Pang & Tong who won the Silver in their 3rd Olympics (after just missing the podium in Torino). How pleased Yao Bin (the Chinese ice-skater turned coach who spent the last two decades building a Pairs Figure Skating program in China) must be. What a tremendous accomplishment!
I tend to prefer the individual events to 'team sports' ... (figure & speed skating, downhill racing, cross country skiing, jumping, snowboarding, etc) ... so I've not watched any hockey and probably won't.
I'm relieved to report that my Medicare Card arrived in the mail over the weekend ... HOORAY! Unfortunately my Plan D coverage is still up in the air ... apparently my original application has been lost. I spent a long time on the phone yesterday trying to resolve the problem and eventually was told they'd resubmit it. I'm supposed to call in a week to check on the status of things.
Hunger calls ... so methinks I'll publish this and fix myself something to eat then settle down to watch some Olympic events.
