Today was busy, but productive and fun.   I got some cleaning done around the apartment,  got the garbage taken out,  some stuff stored away.   Then I went to mom & dad's place for the family celebration of the birthdays.  I got a new hamper (I've needed one for some time now....lol  My old one was falling apart).  I also got some plastic laundry bags, an ebay gift card, a bracelet, and cash.

Everybody here is very excited because the Minnesota Vikings won their playoff game yesterday. If they win the next game, they'll be in the Super Bowl. And the Super Bowl is in Minneapolis. It would be the first time in NFL history that a Super Bowl team played in its home stadium.

So what's funny is, I gather according to people's comments that it was an extremely exciting game. I was reading the newspaper but had the game on because my ex-husband and son had been watching it earlier and games (football, basketball, baseball) never distract me enough to keep me from reading. Like, if it were some show I hated (Two and a Half Men or something), I'd still find myself looking up and getting caught up in the dialogue and plot. But I can tune out sports. They're like white noise in the background. I rarely keep the TV on but in this case the background noise seemed kind of friendly and compatible.

The few times I looked up, the Vikings were ahead of the New Orleans Saints, 23-21. Then a while after that, I realized the game had probably ended, so I glanced at the TV to see who had won. The Vikings were jumping around and talking to reporters. So I figured, oh nice, they held on to their lead.

Apparently it was much closer than that. I never did hear the final score, but judging from today's OMG!!!! WHAT A GAME!!! type comments, I'm assuming the Saints pulled ahead but then the Vikings won at the last minute with some great play or something.

On Feb. 4, the day of the SB, if the Vikings are in the game I will be the most boring person in Minneapolis. :laugh:

I decided to be different.   For those who like savory, I found a recipe for an "easy" breakfast meat casserole, consisting of eggs, cheese, milk, tater tots, bacon and sausage.   For those who l like sweet, I found a recipe for an "easy" French Toast casserole, consisting of French bread, eggs, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon.

Since we're off Monday, I will prep and bake them tomorrow, and bring them to work on Tuesday, heating them with sternos and aluminum pans.

That is so nice of you, Chuck! Your coworkers are lucky to have you.  :D

Yes, a very fun day, friend Chuck. I went to a meeting of my permaculture group, and was elected president of the chapter! It makes me proud, and scared at the same time.

I second Chuck's congratulations and certainty that you will be great in that role. Keep up posted!

Hello Bettermost Friends!

:)

I'm finishing up a busy day today.   Did some shopping, a lot of baking, searching online, and just relaxing at the moment.

stuff is ready to bring to work tomorrow, and chilling in the fridge.

Hello Bettermost friends!

The breakfast casseroles were a big hit.  There were three pans of each, and I ended up with just 1/4 of  one pan left for the "breakfast meat" one, and a little less than 1/2 of one French Toast.

In fact, I had three  people comment on them to me about them today, two days after the fact.

:)

Wow -- three pans of each! Are there any openings in your office? I could start around this time next year.  :laugh:

Glad they were a success, Chuck!

You sure put a lot of effort into creating a friendly atmosphere at your work and being generous to your coworkers!

I'm sure they love you for it!   :-*

Hello Bettermost  friends!

:)

Warmer here in NJ today, so I had the windows open for a little while, to let some fresh air into the apartment.

Headed out to get some chores done, and I managed to get the Valentine Day lights up and get some cleaning done in the apartment.
