Two joys

I made some pretty good little "pies" for the family Super Bowl party yesterday. Crust: shredded potato, onion, egg, flour, butter. Filling: chopped ham, onion, green pepper, chili powder, tomato, celery.

Then discovered my little Niece-in-law crying in the living room over some unhappy turn of events. We sat and quietly talked and I rubbed Her tiny bare feet until Her frown vanished and She began to nod off to sleep.

The Giants won. Hooray for them.

Yah Giants! They had a great game. They stopped the ever mighty Patriots and didn't listen to any of the naysayers. That's what it takes to win.

What a gift little ones give us when they let us comfort them. They are quite the discriminating sorts.
I am glad you enjoyed your day.

The pies sound wonderful! And nothing like a comforting talk good foot rub to soothe away (many of) life's problems...

Go Giants, indeed!! It was a FANTASTIC game.

Maria said...

I have been wanting to say how much I like the new art!

Kat said...

I agree with leslie ... it is great.

and though I wanted perfection for the Patriots, I was glad for Manning and their heroics.

Chase: You all have tv reception in Canada? Just kidding!

Foster: Truly, a gift indeed. And so magical -- I will never forget my Grandmother holding my brother's baby in Her arms last summer and soothing him to sleep.

Rebecca: They have television reception in New York City? Just kidding!

Maria: Maybe next time Bing will root for a real team.

BigCat and Melanie: Oh, they were, they were. I had the hardest time keeping the Ladies from eating the filling before the pies were ready. (I'm not being sexist here -- I'm sure the guys would have been a problem if they hadn't all been watching the pregame show.

Leslie and Kat: I'm glad You like the new look of Isis.
