On Superbowl Sunday we had brunch in town and then we went over to the Grand Traverse Resort to visit the Home Expo. It's a gathering of contractors that pay to have booths and demonstrate new things that are available and get their name out there.
I was going to take pictures once we got into the area but I felt too conspicuous so all I took was the entryway to the Governors Hall where they held it. That's their advertisement for the show and as you see they tied football into it. There were businesses & restaurants that closed at 3 yesterday to let people go home to watch. It's almost a national holiday!
The first summer when we had just moved into this house I awoke to see a few of these guys grazing in our front yard! Yep...they look real big in your front yard! My home is way off the the left just the other side of the woods that you can barely see. Thankfully that hasn't been a regular event!
Before we left for brunch I started a meal in the slow cooker. I browned up some floured chicken- added in chicken stock, potatoes, carrots, onion and I threw in some green pepper (to see if I'd like it) into my slow cooker. It was OK but I'll stick to celery next time.
We aren't too exciting around here- I didn't even make any snack food for the game, but I was pretty much alone anyway. Dan was puttering in his work shop most of the time- he isn't what you'd call a sports fan. He did show up for half time which was "different"! I'm a bit of a fair weather fan- I wait for the big events to watch. What an exhausting game- so many highs and lows!
Every time I go out to the garage I see my Annabelle Hydrangeas that I dried late last summer. They're literally hanging around (right by my car) waiting for me to do something with them. I'm dreaming about spring and Easter already and I hope to put them to use by then. It's a favorite time of the year!
