USA! USA! USA!
We were up early this morning to get a front row table at the Azteca bar to join other soccer fans in watching the USA World Cup match, and to keep track of the England game on the other TVs. When England scored, we knew the USA team could only advance if we won our match. But it took an agonizing 90 minutes to achieve our GOAL! The US scored in stoppage time, in the 91st minute, to win over Algeria 1-0, and put us in first place in our group! We have been back home about an hour now, still full of nervous energy. We'll be heading outside to work in the yard. We have an open garden here on Saturday and we have to spiff up the place. Turns out the USA also plays their next match on Saturday, so our guests might not get much attention. We'll be recording the match in case we get interrupted. USA! USA!

I thought of you all after I learned the US had won...and wondered if you were celebrating! I am sure your garden guests will understand if you are running back and forth watching tv! I meant to ask you, how do you attach all the plates to each other when you make the garden accents? A certain glue? I have started to watch for small plates and flat bowls to see if I can manage to make some ornaments such as the clever and lovely ones you made.ReplyDelete
That's funny, I ALSO thought of you when I saw we were playing today. And then that picture of you is so perfect!!! Yay for us!!ReplyDelete
sounds like a fun day especially when our team won!ReplyDelete
You are so fun to keep up with. Never a dull moment.ReplyDelete
They talked me into being part of a garden tour in July too...I wish now that I had said no...too much pressure to keep it weedless and nice looking when I should be just having summer fun. haReplyDelete
WooHoo!! Go USA!ReplyDelete
We're really happy the US is doing well so far and still in the game. Yahoo!ReplyDelete
Your garden must be amazing now with all the rain. I wish we were there so we could come and see your garden in person.
