Sometimes we host a party, sometimes we attend a party, and sometimes, like this year, we hang out at home and yell at the TV with just the two of us and the dog.
Now this year's game......the quarters were individually exciting - switching leads, tieing at the end of the second - and that fourth quarter!!!! While I was unhappy with the outcome, it was definitely more exciting by quarter than most entire Super Bowl games. Bill winning the fourth quarter office pool was a nice consolation prize :-)
In addition to the game, today marked the cross-quarter day of Imbolc. We are at the half-way point between Spring and Winter (Phil the Groundhog will let us know tomorrow what to expect for the second half :-] ). For those who celebrate the natural cycles of the seasons, this day represents the great potential lying just under the surface - of the earth and ourselves.
On our bucket list is visiting all of the NFL stadiums as we travel back and forth across the country. We also want to catch some local high school football games on Friday nights. The smaller the town, the better :-). Sharing the joy of the game with new people is something we look forward to.
We're also looking forward to learning about, observing, and participating in local/cultural celebrations in all regions of the country. While the seasons will look different in many places, the wheel of the year will continue to turn as it always has, and celebrating with others in both traditional and brand new ways is going to be very exciting.
The Quarters were definitely a big deal this weekend :-) .
(Thank you my friend, for a most important reminder.)
