Sports, Blogging and Fall


As my husband paces between his computer and the TV, analyzing each and every team, players and plays, I have determined he is addicted to sports, especially football.  He is involved in a few Fantasy Football and Fantasy Baseball leagues.  Oh, and I must also mention golf and auto racing, as well.   Of course, I knew he was a sports enthusiast when we met so I can’t complain. Need I say more about being a wife of a sports nut!

In addition, he has the ability to remember so many details!  He is amazing as he spews out names of players, race car drivers, golfers, and their stats.  He also directs his spewing to myself and our cat, as if we are his partners in all of this hoopla.  We just look at him, wide eyed, as if we understand.  Our cat, Amanda, actually sits with him and stares at the TV.  Do you think his love for sports is wearing off on her?  Pretty soon, she will want her own jersey, etc., and believe me, she has expensive taste.

Well, the reason I am bringing this to light is this is THE REASON I BLOG!  I can go only so far with my husband and cat gleefully watching sports.  Good grief!  What am I to do?  I mean, I love watching sports too.  However, I have a short attention span for anything on TV.

So here I am, taking some time for myself and remembered I was nominated by two excellent bloggers for One Lovely Blog Award.  I have previously been nominated for this award, among others – and hey, I am not bragging!  I am just saying I have been honored with some very nice awards and I appreciate each and every one of them.

Let’s discuss these two excellent bloggers.  I received the nomination from  She loves pets as much as I do and has 3 dogs, 2 cats, and a saltwater fish tank.  Her dog, Jade, is her 35th pet in her lifetime.  Now that is a person that loves pets!  You need to stop by her blog and check out Jade – one beautiful dog.

My other nomination was from  She in involved in a very good cause as she applied for the “Ben Nevis – Winter” walk beginning on 11. December 2015!   Please stop by her site and see what this is all about.

I am going to post the rules for this award and answer the questions, as well.

1. Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
2. List the rules and display the award
3. Add 7 facts about yourself
4. Nominate 10 – 15 bloggers for the award, and comment on one of their posts to let them know

I have addressed #1 and #s 2, 3 and 4 are as follows:

lovely-blog-awardI am married to a sports nut, no kidding!

We have a gorgeous female cat that rules the household.

I just got a stat from my hubby on a football player.  Just now – I am not kidding! 😳 😝 😨 😂 😂 😆

I absolutely love fall and brought out my light up pumpkin today

I installed Windows 10 on my laptop and love it!

We can’t wait to get to Blue Ridge, Ga – our fav.

My favorite thing about blogging is the interaction with others.  There are some very nice and talented people out there.  Where, you ask?  There, I say and don’t confuse the issue.

Nominees in no particular order:

My nominees are under no obligation to pass on the award.  I pass the award to those that I follow and enjoy their talent, as well as those that are supportive of my blogs.

I celebrate fall as my favorite season

tis the reason

I love to share

the feeling of festiveness in the air.

  2. Nice blog, I loved the mental image of the cat watching sports along with your husband! Maybe you’d better try to knit her a jersey, much cheaper that way. Or do you think she won’t go for that?

    • They are so cute together! I should try to take a photo of them. He sits on the bed propped up with a lot of pillows and she sits either beside him or at his feet and stares at the TV. Hmmm – I don’t know about knitting her a jersey – she is very picky.

  3. Thank you so much for the nomination, I’m really flattered! I wish I knew as much about sports as your husband does, I am useless at picking fantasy teams! Our cat is a sports fan too but he prefers action films if he’s honest. 🙂


Communication shows appreciation 😉
