Monday Musings - February 24, 2014

Centennial Lake, Columbia, MD
February 23, 2014
1. Two blue-sky days of mid-winter respite in a row! We were so lucky! And even better, we enjoyed them.

2. A longish walk around a frozen Centennial Lake in bright sun and under fantastic blue skies--what could be better? Yeah, I almost forgot, laying on a beach in the hot sun with a cool drink in my hand and the sound of lazy waves hitting the beach.

3. I met some wine and travel bloggers yesterday. Thinking. 

4. This past weekend was the last without baseball until after the World Series. Spring training games begin this week!

5. The return of the cold weather just makes me want to enjoy Springtime that much more.

6. The Olympics have ended. Yay. It was a great run and it always gave me something different to watch on TV.

7. The US finished second in over all medals and fourth in golds at the Olympics--I think we could call it a disappointing performance.

8. And thinking of the Olympics, the Russian Revolution broke out on this day in 1917.

9. Just to be balanced, the Mexicans attacked the Alamo, defended by 182 Texans and supporters, on this date in 1836.
