There are too many threads about the "Stupid" Bowl! C'mon, I know there are people out there who have no intention of watching American football on Sunday. I might watch a little, just for the commercials, but still....

What will you other folks be up to??

I have to clean and take down my trampoline since I am using it in a play at school and need to get it there on Monday morning.

[Super Bowl lovers, Colts fans and Bears fans - you are NOT allowed to post in this thread - you already have your own threads to glorify the pigskin!]

Well... seeing as I don't have "Starchoice" satellite I can't even watch the most humourous of commercials up here in Canada - and I'm definitely NOT a football fan, there is no reason to even turn it on for me BUT - my friends use it an an excuse to socialize so, we will gather, eat, drink and be merry - with the game on in the background I suppose lol

I don't watch the stupid bowl either. We plan to have a peaceful day of vintage movies and pleasant conversation. Hopefully no company will show up to throw monkey wrenches into our plans as is often the case since most of our grown children live close.

We sure aren't watching football. Yecchh. In high school I dated two captains of our football team and never even went to any of their games.

It's a snowy wonderland out there, so we're making sugar on snow (with donuts and dill pickles!) and watching Anne of Green Gables Megan Follows--one of the few movies that both my daughter and husband love.

What is sugar on snow?

When I was young, we made snow-cream, with snow, sugar, vanilla, and cream. I am not sure I would eat it now!

Let's see, laundry, grocery day, dance lessons for kids, treadmill & weights for me, hopefully do my taxes, update my resume, finish some work I didn't get done during the week, and try to spend some time with my husband and kids.

Just like every Sunday.

Goodness Lodi (what is your name short for, if anything?) that is what my Sundays usually look like.

Missashlee, sugar on snow is an amazing concoction of fresh snow packed into a shallow container, a steaming cup of maple syrup boiled to the soft-ball stage (8 minutes), with a side of a plain old-fashioned donut and a kosher dill pickle. You pour the syrup over the snow in fun designs and it hardens into sticky maple candy that is lethal for your teeth, blood sugar, and general brain functioning. Then you take a bite of donut and a bite of a deli dill pickle. It's delectable.

Growing up in Vermont, the town would haul in fresh snow by the truckload, block off main street, and serve this treat to everyone. Now we make it ourselves once or twice per winter.

Three kids 8 and under= laundry and more laundry. This is pretty much a daily thing. The difference on Sundays is that I change all the bed linens. Thrilling, right?

I'm planning to update the family website with photos of my younger daughter's birthday party and yesterday's gymnastics meet.

Maybe I can convince Mcpop to watch the kidlets while I spend a couple hours at the bookstore or see a movie. Those are my favorite things to do when I get a day off.

Pro football bores me (but I do like college ball) so I won't be watching the Super Bowl.

I saw your reference to sugar on snow. When I was little (like 600 years ago) we lived in Maine. My grandfather would take me to the mountains, in Vermont I think, ride a tram up, and have maple syrup over snow. Upon moving to California most folks thought I was nuts. Even those in the midwest look at me like I was crazy. I know I used to do this and my mom recalls it too. Anyone out thee ever done this?

Sugar on snow is a typical theme for church dinners and winter carnivals in ME/VT/NH, although I don't see it quite as much as I used to. I've made it for friends in PA, the midwest, and France, to varying reception.

Re the reference to snow ice cream, my father used to make that, and it was amazingly fun and delicious, although now I've lost my taste for it.

The band is coming over for practice at noon. After that we go to the gym for a workout - probably some more household chore type activites. I don't watch football.

Sunday (yesterday for Ozzarians) was spent on the sunny patio, about 80F, watching the sailboats drift by on the vast lake at the bottom of the hill. We shared the day with friends, having a BBQ and drinks.
We shared some food with local birds, and friends'dog Kesha.

~~~~~~Not a sports broadcast in sight!~~~~~~~~~~
