Truly, that is what my world is all about right now. Cleaning? Cooking? Well, they need to be scheduled around the Olympics....lol I just love them. We hung our lights and watched the opening ceremony and marveled at the fireworks, the drumming and the dancing. And I always feel such pride when our team enters the stadium and I hope they behave themselves. I loved their outfits including the much maligned leather gloves (must be the Montanan in me) and thought it so clever they included heated jackets. Now that is some smart thinking. What a spectacular evening it was.
I spent yesterday curled up on the couch and enjoyed watching Red Gerard win the USA's first gold medal of the game. He is only 17 and was so thrilled and I loved seeing his whole family just revel in his victory. Now I know nothing about Slopestyle Snowboarding, but that didn't matter, it was still an awesome event to watch. How do they learn that stuff? Way to go Red!
Took in a little Curling, and some ice skating. I love the Ice Dancing the most. I am from the Torvill and Dean era and love the quickness and style of it. I must say some of the other skating is just a bit ponderous for me. And what is with some of their music choices? Yawn. I did love one particular skater from Korea, in the woman's short program. A lovely young lady who skated to, Papa Can you Hear Me (from Yentl) and it was truly a beautiful performance. I was ready to hang the medal around her neck right then and there.
So, for the next 2 weeks, I will be watching, and clapping and crying. And I hope you will be too. It only comes every 4 years. Give up your regular shows, because this truly is the best reality show ever! :) Always, Kit
