Hiya fans!!! LOL!!! Yep, it’s been a football day today.
The Panthers and the Lions both won today. Yaaa Hooooo!!!!!! The Panthers beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the second time this season. And Derek Anderson led the way for the second time this season against them. I had my breath taken away earlier this week when Cam Newton was in a car accident. He fractured two vertebrae in his spine, but is doing ok, so it seems. He was on the sidelines cheering his teammates on. The game was close, back and forth all afternoon long. The final score was close, 17 to 19. They won, but it wasn’t a pretty win, by any means. The defense played well and the offense held the ball for more time than the Bucs—37:31 minutes to 22:29. The Panthers had more yards—390 to 287, and gathered twice the first downs—28 to 14. Derek is a good quarterback, but was a bit jittery at the first of the game, while the Bucs scored on their first possession. But the final score is what counts. And they won!!!
The Lions had a close game too. They were down 14 to 0 and came back to score 16 unanswered points for the win. The Vikings even had more first downs—21 to 11, more yardage—360 to 233, and more time of possession—34:43 to 25:17. But like I said, the end score is what counts, and the Lions held on, barely, for the victory. Blair Walsh missed three field goals for the Vikings, making the difference in the game. If only one of those attempts had made it, the Vikings would have won. However, the Lions held on and are tied with the Packers for first place in the NFC North. Please let them play better from here on out; they lucked out with this one today.
Fabric and String
I wasn’t idle while the games were on. Oh no, I was doing hand work on Christmas gifts and even managed to do a few rows of crocheting before my hands began cramping. Will do more sewing in just a little while, just want to see a few plays between the Cowboys and the Eagles. Still got lots to do.
That’s basically been my day today. Got up early, but dozed in the recliner a while because I didn’t get to sleep until around 3 AM. The alarm woke me up at 8, but I didn’t really get going until around 11. I did a bit of work in the living room. Got to get some things straightened up, inspection on the 2nd. So I’m gonna be busy, busy, busy for the next couple weeks. But I’ll be popping in to say hi. So for tonight, it’s off to sew some more. Hope everyone has a good night, and a nice Monday. Talk to ya tomorrow. Blessed be, hugs!!! Pam
