Weekend Watching

Wandering through the weekend I watched as the transition from summer to fall marched on with probably my last butterfly sighting, conversations transitioning from flowers to apples and the birds patiently waiting for the arrival of their fall feathers. It was a full weekend of watching college and pro football and a few stressful games…

The plan for the weekend was to stay home watching football, one of my favorite sports programs, ESPN College GameDay and the backyard visitors, but when I heard there would be another group of my favorite guys in town, men in kilts, I had to attend the Renaissance Festival.  There was an opportunity to watch…

The weather was perfect this weekend and I should have been kayaking instead of watching others kayak, but I was wandering through a favorite art fair and being dragged away from wonderful signs, beautiful hats and registering my niece for the Cold Butt Euchre Tournament.

In between watching my favorite cyclist, Peter Sagan, win his record-setting seventh green jersey in the final weekend of the Tour de France shortened due to weather conditions, there was time to watch the birds, feathers float by, hostas blooming before they were quickly eaten by the deer and bees dancing around the flowers.

Harper and I were enjoying our wine on the deck watching the little birds, the one flower blooming in the yard and the big birds that cleared that yard. So far Harper is enjoying her toys more than watching birds and squirrels. I would have loved to be watching owls, but so far I’m only…

Weekend Watching

Harper and I were hoping the week of upsets would continue in the final weekend of the Premier League, but Liverpool finished in second place after Manchester City won the title for the second straight year. Harper was saved from more tulip watching as we stayed indoors reflecting on the great Premier League season and…
