Life’s Not All Bad

Seriously.

There is still good stuff happening in the world and in my own world.

It snowed the other day. Not enough to make driving a total disaster, but enough to sit on the evergreen branches and cover the dirty snow that had been sitting for a week. It has been cold since then, so there hasn’t been any melting, and hopefully the cross-country skiing will be good tomorrow. The sun on the pristine snow is blinding, however.

I’ve watched my boyfriend’s son’s basketball team win two games in the last week. Last Friday night, they won with a three point shot with 0.5 seconds left on the clock. I thought that sort of thing only happened in the movies, not for a group of eighth-graders. With that win, they (the fourth ranked team) knocked out the first-ranked team and advanced to the finals. A band friend’s son was the game high scorer, so good news all around (even though he was on the losing team).

Wednesday afternoon was the championship game. “We” lead for nearly all of the game, which enabled some of the weaker players to get in and contribute too. Boyfriend’s son missed much of the season with an injury, but he got the chance to play and scored six points!

And I had fun playing with my Christmas present from my dad – a DSLR. Here are some pictures from the championship game:

    This individual is an awesome ball handler, and this might be the best picture I took - he has both feet off the ground!
