I am so NOT a baseball person. I am in a minority here as everyone in Missouri follows the Royals or the Cardinals. The Cardinals are favored in the southwestern corner of the state due to their minor team playing in Springfield. About once a year DH likes to attend a game, and last night was it. Fortunately, it was a 7:10 game so the sun was down and the air delightful, almost cool with a slight breeze. I don’t know of any game that goes slower than baseball though. I felt like I should get out on the field and urge those men to get with it and change positions and line up to bat with some vigor in their movements! I also didn’t like the loud music, constant blab on the loudspeakers. I had an end seat which was good, but I people-watched more than I should. I noted the same people (and a lot of them) were running up and down the steps for food, more food and then more drink.
Before we left, a nice give away box arrived from Becky over at http://beckypovich.blogspot.com. There were oodles of brightly colored books, notes, and candle holders that shouted “summer fun”, but my very favorite was a Mary Englebright cook book! I took it in the car and read recipes all the way to the game. The book has so many things I want to try like Green Chili Rice!
Even leaving the game early, we did not get to bed until after midnight. This morning the sky is the blue gray of pigeon’s wing, and the sky drops a sprinkle every now and then like an occasional tear. Both DH and I feel groggy in the day’s weather after a late night. Hum, too old for late nights now? Anyway, life is good that we can linger on the deck this morning with books after bacon and eggs with a pot of tea. I will admit we are doing more holding and dozing than actually reading the books today!
