Pure Gold

P1000813Is there really anything worth talking about today beyond the women who won Gold?

That’s rhetorical question by the way.

First it was the women’s curling team and then Team Canada in ice hockey. Just plain Wow! all the way.

Now – let me tell you a secret: you have me to thank for both those wins. First, as soon as I got up this morning I started watching the curling streaming live on my computer – and OMG, Canada was behind Sweden 3-2. I watched for a bit and simply couldn’t stand it. Teh stress was too much for me. I stopped watching, checked my emails, etc. Then, when I thought it might be safe to peek again, I got there just as Jennifer Jones threw that last rock for the win. You see, if I had continued to watch, I would have put a curse on them and Sweden would have won.

Then, as I drove around this morning doing my various errands, I listened to the hockey game live on CBC. Teh first period – and the second period. I lost hope. But then I realized with the score 2-0 for the US, the only hope Canada had for the Gold was if I stopped listening. I did. And did not tune in again until I got home and my Facebook friends informed me that the women had just won. I watched a replay of the final goal and burst into happy tears. But you should be aware that if I had continued to listen, Canada would have lost.

You’re welcome.

And to celebrate this golden moment or two, I bring you a golden morning photo from one of the beaver ponds in the area.
