A rousing evening – Our local pro football team, which was not expected to do well at the start of the season, was awesome…until the quarterback was injured. They made it to the first round of playoffs but the odds makers were not kind. Disrespected some say. Despite being league champions, they were the underdogs. It created a “we’ll show them” attitude. The first playoff game was last night. I couldn’t watch it. I could tell how it was going by the groans and cheers from the beloved husband. I was struck by how fans rally when the chips are down (and this is Philadelphia where fans are not the kindest!). They won.
Soup! – Our local grocery store had a wonderful pumpkin bisque available over the fall into the holidays. It also had shrimp bisque and baked potato soup along with some others I like. It was a hard decision. I almost looked forward to trying the rest when pumpkin moved on. Pumpkin is gone now but so are the rest. All that’s left is a collection of stupid soups made by tossing trash together. Boogers!
Christmas has left the building — All the decorations are finally down except for the window candles. We keep those up until the end of February. It’s so nice to come home to a house that isn’t completely dark during the worst of the winter.
A solutions of sorts – Last week I posted about issues I was having with the “reader” function of WordPress. After a conservation with the happiness engineers, the problem is with Internet Explorer, my browser. After a search I found that IE is on its way out. Microsoft has developed Edge as a replacement although I stubbornly cling to IE. Using Edge or Chrome (the Google browser), the problem disappears. I liked my old IE better. I had toolbars set up and searching was easy peasy. Edge doesn’t support toolbars. I will keep working with it because I have to but for me it’s another case of an upgrade (?) I didn’t want.
Taking care – There is a lot of illness going around, including flu. Since we’re both retired, we don’t come in contact with sick people on a regular basis. However, we’ve been exposed recently and are being vigilant. Some people who have been ill have had a hard time shaking it off. So far we are well and hope that you are too.
So how was your week?
