Two to Go

Yesterday was spent being lazy - well, not as lazy as some, but I didn't do any real housework, played LOTR On-Line with DH for a few hours, and watched football before going out to check that my father-by-marriage's home had been properly locked up after the latest real estate showing. The football games were WONDERFUL and best of all, my Broncos WON! So, next week they are hosting New England in the Mile High City for the Divisional Playoffs and, if they can win that game, two weeks afterward they will be one of the two teams in the Superbowl.

I agree with this in many respects. Although I'll turn something in,
I know I could do better and keep turning it over and over in my head,
sometimes going back to rewrite and edit again and again to fine-tune.
That's the mark of a perfectionist. 

Now, I fully realize that many of you could care less about American football, and that of those who love the sport, even fewer of you will be Broncos fans, but my BFF Sharon and I bleed orange and blue and both of us are jumping up and down for joy this morning while looking at the upcoming game with a bit of trepidation. But, I have high hopes that Peyton Manning and the rest of the team can pull this off and take my Broncos to the Superbowl. The game itself will be in East Rutherford, New Jersey so weather may also play a factor. I'll be watching, no matter who gets in. I love Superbowl Sunday.

MetLife Stadium, the home of the Giants, is where the Superbowl will be
held on February 2nd. Every seat will be filled and millions more will be
watching on TV, including my DH and I . 

I have writing projects to start out my week, which always makes me happy. I got my assignment request confirmation for B2MeM 2014 and will be starting work on that, as well as my prompt for the next Tolkien Weekly drabble. It's always a nice challenge to continue a theme through the drabbles, and I'm hoping I can make this one work within the structure of the past three. No guarantees, but it's always fun to try and get it just right.

I saw this wonderful watercolor of Gandalf entering the Shire and just had to share it.

I've also been enjoying the Snowflake Challenge prompts. I have a few to catch up on from the weekend, but those will be done and probably posted on LJ today or tomorrow. I love waking up on a Monday with writing challenges waiting for me that are shorter than my novel. It doesn't change the fact that I still write on the longer book, but it's really fun to have something completed in under 20,000 words.

The Snowflake Challenge has been fun and I've been sharing it with a lot
of my friends in LJ and DW. I wasn't going to participate initially, but
I'm glad I changed my mind. 

So, nothing fascinating today. I'll try to give you something more interesting to read and great pics tomorrow just because... LOL.
