You see, last night was the big game.. The Superbowl! Two wonderful teams were playing each other, and of course, one team had to lose in the end. I was just really hoping it wasn't my team, the blue team.
Yes, I had my hopes up, and all the snacks and beverages ready and set up for the occasion.. some in the dining room, and some in the kitchen! The blues were feeling and looking pretty good, as the game was just about to begin!
See the football cake, I made? Why, I even made blue jello, in all my team spirit!.. not that anybody touched it.. I guess maybe I'll have some with my lunch today!
However, while the Indianapolis Colts started out well in the first half, the New Orleans Saints pulled ahead in the second half, and won the game 31-17.
Why I can't even drown my sorrows with shopping! The salt was just getting rubbed into my wounds even MORE, when this morning I find one of my shopping channels has Superbowl Champs merchandise on the air, all in black and gold, with little Fleur-de-Lis emblems all over them!
Yes, I think I'm feeling a little in the mood for some blues music, but I don't want my visitors feeling blue TOO! So here's a little compromise I came across, since I'm feeling a bit of a cry baby today!
Now see? Did that make YOU smile?! It certainly made ME smile! Even the mother was BLUE! In fact, I'll bet this song will take my mind off the game, and be stuck in my head ALL DAY today!.. Ya think?! Oh dear. Of course, I guess I should extend my apologies ahead of time, if you should find it has the same effect on you!
Moving on, today is Day 8 of The Fourteen Days of Love, hosted by Liz at Brambleberry Cottage! Today's theme is "Must Love Pets"!
So here are our three! These photos were taken last Easter!
Many of you may remember Ubu, our cocker spaniel! He is six years old. Only a snack could have possibly held him so still and so nicely for THIS photo!
Next, you see the Queen Bee of the three, Little Miss Skyler! She is seven years old now. She is a nice cat in general, and absolutely beautiful!.. But she is a somewhat nervous sort. A group photo of the three pets all together is quite out of the question, as far as she's concerned. She definitely likes her space from the other two, who are like brothers!
And this is the newest member to our family, Tuffy! This big boy is two years old now.
Yes, this is our little crew of furbabies here! I hope you enjoyed your visit here today.. I would never want YOU leaving here, feeling blue! In all my desire to be a good sport, I do want to congratulate the New Orleans Saints and all the fans today! Thanks to everybody so much for stopping by, and I hope you will pay a visit with both Sally and Liz today, to see the fun that's happening on this fine Monday all over Blogland!
