I have been watching the Santos Tour Down Under (Australia). The first big bike race of the year. Well, last night was the queen stage ending up Willunga Hill. I wanted to watch!! They are 15 1/2 hours ahead of us, which means watching from about 9 pm to 11:30 pm.
Thursday night was not a good night and I got up LATE yesterday. And animal chores have to be done! So as I was rushing through water changes on the fish tanks, I cut the corner of my bed tooooo close. My pinky toe got up close and personal with the footboard of my bed. I couldn’t breathe for a bit. Here’s what it looks like one day on.
We went running around this afternoon taking care of some annoying chores. One of our stops was at Home Depot. Imagine my delight at finding that the small orchids were being sold for only $2.50 a plant! I was thrilled and dug out some of my Christmas cash to purchase 2 of them. Merry Christmas to me! Aren’t they pretty?
So a not so stellar beginning of a day ended with pretty flowers. Now I’m going to watch the last 13 laps of the Santos Tour Down Under! (If you pop in before 11:30 pm eastern US – it’s 10:30 now – you can watch too! http://wwos.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=8785996#cf )
