It’s been a great day to be a basketball junkie. Today, I got to watching Kansas pommel the University of Connecticut and my San Antoino Spurs continue their undefeated season at home, while making batch after batch of popcorn. Not a bad way to spend an evening at home. I’ve not opened my school email, I’ve not even thought about school work, just basketball and folding a bit of laundry.

To be honest, the day as a whole hasn’t been a bad one at all. My riding lawn mower fired right up this afternoon. I typically forget to take the battery in and it usually entails me having to push the mower out and charging it somehow. Today, boom, away it went. I got my hands dirty, getting a few of the garden boxes cleaned out, the soil turned over. I found I will need to replace a part on the grill, but it’s still working, so we had grilled burgers, the first of the season.

In the end, this junkie will need a another fix tomorrow as the Hawkeyes and Panthers battle for a place in the Sweet Sixteen. As an Iowan, the possibility of having three teams from Iowa in the final sixteen teams of the tournament, it would be pretty “sweet” indeed! šŸ™‚
