I was glued to the TV. Weren’t you all? It was the Olympics and Women’s Gymnastics was on. Definitely one of my most favorite events, along with swimming.
So much drama at the Olympics, right?! Real-life drama! Though it’s heartbreaking what’s happening with Simone Biles. She still is, and always will be the GOAT.
But I’m so proud of the way the rest of the team rallied after the initial panic when Simone announced her withdrawal.
And what about Suni Lee, huh? She’s an upcoming superstar, to be sure. So stunning to watch. And Rebeca Andrade from Brazil, wow! Love her performance so much!
I was stuck to the couch the whole time, didn’t, and couldn’t move an inch. Not even when the commercials came on. Good thing I had prepared sustenance before the games started.
Turkey Club. Arguably, one of the GOATS in the world of sandwiches. Perfect! Go Team USA!

Regards the Olympics – yesterday cable finally came to the area. I haven’t had cable for TV for 30 years – and for 20 of those I didn’t even have a workable antenna.
So I got plugged in and have FASTER wifi/Internet! YAY Team! But why I mention this is that I now get to watch the Olympics. I’m not really a sports fan, but I do like seeing many of the Olympic events. Sorry about Simone Biles but I loved watching both Suni Lee win the gold, and the Brazilian win the silver (with all her ACL injuries in the past, I had something of an empathy with her, even if mine are knee-ankle injuries) in the All-Around. I even got back up to watch the fourth part of that, despite a strong need for sleep.
The other two events that fascinated me yesterday were the BMX Cycling things, men and women – what a track! And the women’s Canoe slalom run -if I were 14 again!!! Saw a bit of men’s water polo, which I also enjoyed.
Not sure what’s up for today… finding an exact schedule of when things are timed for is proving elusive!
The BMX fascinated me to no end! I never really followed it but watched the whole thing yesterday. Such an exciting sport! But all the crashes, my goodness. It’s good we have the Olympics on. With Delta cases rising, I’m sort of grounding myself every now and then. The past few weeks I was so carefree, going places without mask on even, but now I’m starting to be concerned.

Angie I’m unfamiliar with the GOAT term, what does that mean?
Here it’s an animal.
It’s an abbreviation for Greatest Of All Time. And yes, also an animal ?
Thank you for hosting a GREAT party. I brought Hawaiian Chicken, Chicken Fricassee and Antipasto Salad. I’m looking forward to visiting links over the next few days. I hope you’re having a WONDERFUL week.
Thanks, Tamy. Have a great week!

I love how the olympics bring the world together… It’s just so sad that Japan has had to host in such difficult times.
Thank you so much for hosting and for featuring our Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes xx
I totally agree with your sentiments regarding the Olympics. And I love the idea of ice cream cone cupcakes!
