Just Enjoy the Show

I have a daily routine - feeding the birds and other "wild ones" who are hungry and want to eat. 
I throw the peanuts over the rail first and then spread the seeds and other nuts onto the deck table. Today I went back inside and before I could pull out my chair to sit and watch the show, over a dozen jays were already coming in for a landing! 
It was amazing to watch and looked like a mass of jet planes were flying in from every direction coming in for landing...but on the same runway with no air traffic controller on the job! 
They were banking to avoid crashing into one another and the house (airport)! It really is quite entertaining and so I sit without waiting for the show to begin...and enjoy!  :)

Tom Brady & Co. are Super Bowl LV Champions

Tom Brady never disappoints!
He left the Patriots to play for Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a 2-year contract. He said he had something he needed to prove to himself, and I believe he succeeded with this Super Bowl win! 
He's not finished he said, he'll know when the time comes to stop playing football, but it clearly is not the time - he's looking forward to next season.
He has ring #7 now...and I want to say that anyone who boasts that he should have retired 2 seasons or more ago is just their stupid opinion. No one knows when a person should retire from their career, whatever it is. 
 QB Mahomes, in my view, will not have a long career. He's already dealing with injuries - he's young and plays hard and fast - it's not enough for him to throw the ball...he has to keep it and run it himself! :) Players like that burn out quickly and are always injured. I saw him go right into the Chiefs locker room the first time they lost to Brady and never came out onto the field to congratulate him - all that is, is a young poor sport and poor sportsmanship. In fact, Brady went to the locker room and asked to talk to Mahomes.  And today I learned that Mahomes' mother emailed Brady's mother to tell her Tampa Bay only won because of the referees' calls! my opinion, sore losers and bad sportsmanship runs in Mahomes' blood.  All anyone had to do was look at the Bucs defense make mincemeat out of the "young gun" and the Bucs earned every bit of that game win.  In the playoffs up to yesterday, Tampa had to go through Drew Brees and Aaron Rogers for the chance to play in the Super Bowl!  Till next season...

Groundhog Day


Well said!  :) 

First Nor'easter


Birds waiting for me in the umbrella tree to put the food out - well worth the wait!

We got around 10" from this storm (sigh...and so it begins) A neighbor will help Tom snow blow the driveway later this morning. It's a very good thing he's working from home...and we were lucky we didn't lose power from the windy conditions.

"Porch Light" by Jeanie Tomanek


"Porch Light" by Jeanie Tomanek

I have always loved art and have been painting on and off most of my life. I never was an art collector until now. The way I know I am an art collector is because I have been buying paintings by Jeanie Tomanek from Marietta, GA for over a year! And she thanks me all the time for being an art collector and lover of her art. So I believe her...I am an art collector.
 I found Jeanie on Facebook and is now a friend. I look forward to looking at her page every day to see  her latest painting! :) I have never felt this way about anyone else's art, although I love other's paintings of different styles and have purchased them, but none as consistently as Jeanie Tomanek's art. 
"Porch Light" is painted in acrylics on an 8x8 wood panel. It's sitting on a table easel at the moment, but I may move it - I think I'll be needing to create another "art wall" as I have many paintings in different areas of my home. If I do than I'll post pictures of the changes I've made. I just had to share this with everyone today, and here is Jeanie's website...check out her paintings!
