So... for 7 days the Mariners are the very best baseball team in all of the MLB. We have 2 wins more than everyone else! The Oakland A's (oh how it sucks to be them for a week) have 2 losses and everyone else is 0-0. It's glorious.
Today's game went into extra innings and my taping ended before the game did so I had to finish via words and highlights. To us Mariner fans, the news was the win, but to the rest of the world, the news was that Ichiro retired from baseball after the game. He made a couple of decent defensive plays and did nothing at the plate. It was time. And they really did it up right. The 45,000 spectators, teams and press gave him a true hero's goodbye. It was classy and really nice. Sometimes baseball does stuff exactly right.
Back here in the town of the winningiest team in baseball, we're now doing laundry. This morning I changed the bed linens and retired the winter comforter to it's space in the closet. See you next Fall! I love sleeping under that thing but, the fall/spring quilt and the summer quilt look so much nicer, tidier on the bed. So I'm ok with the change.
Next up is sewing. I want to finish the top I started yesterday and maybe start another new one. While I was swimming this morning, I remembered some really cool fabric I got just as winter started. It is black on cream until the sun hits it and then it gets colors! I saved it since the sun was going into hibernation. But now is the perfect time for it.
Also maybe a walk around the block. Ok, no. Definitely a walk around the block. It's at least a little cooler today.
