'Twas the Friday before Super Bowl,
Snacks to be made,
Commercials to be laughed at,
And homage to be paid.
I like the Colts AND the Saints (although I didn't like the way the Saints went after Favre in the championship, I have to say). Basically, I'm just looking forward to a good football game.
Okay, on to the Friday Fave Five, hosted by Susanne at Living to Tell. If you'd like to play along, you can link your own post to Susanne's.
1. A fun and delicious dinner with my stepson (Don, who is #2) and his family last Saturday night. The pork chops were truly amazing -- tender, juicy, and with a scrumptious gravy that has to be tasted to be believed. After I've made them myself a couple of times, I'll post the recipe here (because, as we all know, recipes change a little bit according to the person who is doing the cooking). I think we laughed together all evening, and it was a very refreshing break for us.
2. The promise of a business trip that will take me to San Antonio in early March, and a reunion there with an old childhood friend. My hubby is going with me -- we bought his ticket this week -- so this will be a really fun time!
3. Laughter. I have had some very dark moments since my mother passed in November -- the cumulative effect of being orphaned, plus some unrelenting family stress that falls squarely on my husband and undermines his health. I cherish the moments when he and I laugh out loud together at something.
4. My niece, Mandee, for her unwavering support, good humor, and common sense. I love that gal!
5. Tax refund! Yeah!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
