I am so excited!
OK, this is a stitching blog, so I will start with today's stitching (some of it, as I was mostly stitching on a gift today) - I set myself back to work on A Quaker Christmas tonight... I did not accomplish as much as I would have liked to because I had no focus... I kept getting up and down, dancing around the den, totally unfocused and jubilant... because....
Let the photos say it for me...
RYAN NEWMAN WON THE DAYTONA 500 TONIGHT!! Most of my dearest friends know that I am 1) a huge sports fan, and 2) a HUGE fan of the Red Sox, the Patriots and Ryan Newman. I can say I love the MLB and the NFL... but I do not love NASCAR, per se (lately it is all Hendrick Motorsports/The Jimmie Johnson Show - no thank you) - I am just a Ryan Newman fan. And... after 81 races without a win (last was in September of 2005, right here in New Hampshire)... lots of patience and lots of worrying... well, I was just hoping for a win from Ryan - but he had bigger plans!! Ryan won the biggest of all of NASCAR's races tonight! Certainly, his teammate (seen in the top photo, car #2) is the reason he won - thank you, Kurt Busch, for pushing Ryan past Tony Stewart (#20) and breaking this amazing drought! Way to go Team Penske! I need to pinch myself - did this really happen??? I wonder if I will even sleep tonight! LOL
