Monday Hoops

Ooops...I need to correct that the Lady Vols were ranked #12 this week but the game was very exciting and the Sooners won 80-70!!! It was a great evening!!!!!

Stitchery hoops are not the focus today at our house! Instead I'm very excited about basketball hoops :)

My sweetheart and I love to follow college football and basketball! We look forward all summer to the first football game of the season and we are totally lost when March Madness is over :) We are not big baseball fans and that's probably good since we need those months to garden and get things in order before football starts again. We are very devoted fans of the University of Oklahoma Sooners (BOOMER SOONER!!) but we also cheer for Belmont University, Vanderbilt University and the University of Tennessee since one daughter and son-in-law are alums of those schools.
I especially love women's basketball and the OU Sooners are number 2 in the nation! My favorite women's basketball coach is Pat Summitt of Tennessee...she's an amazing coach and a classy lady. So the ideal game for me would be Sherri Coale and the #2 OU Sooners against Pat Summitt and the Lady Vols!!! And it's happening tonight and my sweetheart surprised me with tickets!!! He even has to take off work early so we can get there in time for all the pregame fun.

I want the Sooners to win but a Tennessee win would be #1000 for Pat Summit. I'll be a happy lady either way. It's nationally televised so if you see a crazy lady dressed in OU crimson and cream singing "Rocky Top" ... that's me :)

I'll be back to stitching tomorrow! Have a wonderful day!

Oh I wish I had TV so I could have looked for you! I'd be singing Rocky top right with you.

I'm hoping and praying that you have been safe during the recent storms. I've been thinking of you.

Your packaged arrived and I already LOVE Gladys Taber. I can hardly put the book down. Thank you so much ~ I've written you an email. If you get a chance, please let me know that you are well and safe.

Blessings,
