All In

February 11th, 2014

Mr Chiots and I don’t go about anything halfway, we jump in and fully commit. The same goes for the Olympics. Yesterday morning Mr Chiots was on the couch watching three different curling matches on various laptops and his iPad and he was also watching luge on the TV.

Now that’s a committed Olympic fan! He’s even trying to take this week off and not do much work, something that never happens around here! I’ve been watching as well, but not quite as much. I’ve been doing work and sewing while watching.

Is there anything you go all in for?

    Susy, all out for something? Hmmmm, I guess it would be raising a grandson right now. I’ve been blessed with the role of 100% grandpa, 90% Dad, and 50% Mom in his nine year old life. It’s not something I would have chosen but since it’s happened, my life has been greatly enriched.

    Gardening would be another area that I’m all in. I’ve already transplanted a few of the onions I started a couple weeks ago and planted some more on the heat mat. I’ve never tried onions before. Gardening has definitely started in my basement seed starting station. I’m guessing that the heat mat and grow lights will be in full use for the next couple months.

    Have a great Olympic day off.

    Finally found taped curling games on our cable channel. I love it, even though living in Texas I’ll never get an opportunity to play the game.

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
