Sex, food, and what else?

Hawaii 012-A


Yesterday, we shopped at American Carpet One because of their big sale, and did manage to find a beautiful blue carpet we liked.  Lisa’s bedroom and the master bedroom will soon have new carpeting.  Yay!

Some of you might question the wisdom of installing carpet instead of tile or wood.  Though tile and wood are easier to clean, I think carpet is safer.  My 97 year old mother has fallen numerous times and has sustained fractures of her arm, spine and ribs – most recently in November of last year.  Had she fallen on thick, dense carpeting instead of a hard surface, she might have spared herself needless pain and suffering.  The older we become, the more prone we are to losing our balance and falling.  It is with this in mind that we prefer carpet.

Today, David will be watching two NFL games on television.  Needless to say, he is very excited and hopes that San Francisco will prevail over Seattle, and that Denver will beat New England.  We’ll see who makes it to the Super Bowl in February.  Good luck and best wishes to all four teams.

As for me, you’ll probably find me in the kitchen.  There are two things in life worthy of our attention:  sex and food.  Without sex, you cannot have children, and without food, you cannot survive.

Here’s the link to an easy recipe for Baked Meatballs (I have followed this recipe twice so far:  Delicious!):

Have a happy day, folks!

    carpet is easier for a potential fall that’s for sure, what shade of blue did you choose?

    Bathrooms and kitchen are the only areas of my home not carpeted. I’m ready to take on some falls. They won’t happen from being excited over football games though. Not a sports fan here. I am a meatball fan however. Yum. Those baked meatballs look delicious.

  3. Oman Says:

    why am I looking for a sex or a food pic haha. anyways, great shot.

  4. Olga Says:

    I am usually totally unaware of the sports scene, but this is the third reference to the Seattle/San Fran matchup I have read this morning. I guess I am missing something.

  5. Jeanie Says:

    Around here, right now, you would think people need football to survive. It will get even worse if the Broncos win today.

  6. Joanne Says:

    When my children were little and running, running, running around I carpeted the hardwood floors. Instant tennis shoes, muffled the noise.

  7. DJan Says:

    I like carpeting, too, just because I like the way it feels underfoot. I am a lightweight sports fan, but when I’m unable to get away from it, I usually get pulled in! 🙂

  8. Christine Says:

    I noticed I am losing my balance more easily, didn’t attribute it to age, but that must be it. Good tip about the carpet too, makes sense. Thanks for the recipe, will try it. She just posted one for homemade pizza that I also saved.

  9. Linda Reeder Says:

    I had hardwood installed downstairs two years ago and I love it. It’s so much easier to maintain than carpet.
    As to food, sex, and football, what matters in all three is passion.

    Yes hard surfaces hurt if you hit them. David broke his hip in the driveway. Ouch!! D~

  11. LC Says:

    Hubby and I are considering flooring redo options now. Post=stroke I have had several falls. I really like the easy clean options cause we are so hard on carpet. But I almost fell on a hard surface today. Carpet may be in our future.

  12. Suzanne Says:

    I will have to try that recipe. I have started really getting into meatballs this year.

  13. Cathy Says:

    We have carpet in all living rooms but oh I do miss my polished boards and rugs. The risks are lower with carpet although tripping and loss of balance can happen anywhere – it’s just it more of an effort to keep carpet clean and it’s not so good for asthmatics or anyone with any chest/lung condition.

  14. Munir Says:

    I always wanted hardwood floor with oriental and or Persian carpet, but everywhere the place came already carpeted. So we decided to use it instead of going through the trouble.

  15. Tom Sightings Says:

    I think you’re okay with either wood or carpet. Just don’t put down throw rugs — those things will kill ya. As for football, well, I guess David is half-happy.

  16. Hank Chapin Says:

    Since you bring up the subject of “falling,” I would like to say that it is one of the most common concerns at Hale Nani, the rehab and nursing home. I heard the word a lot when I was visiting there. Falling is sometimes a game changer in that there can be a healthier “before” and a sicker “after,” often with hospitalization, with each fall.

    I just bought some throw rugs to cover the bare floor. Maybe it will turn out to be a mistake, but I am slowly redecorating the house to my taste, one of the benefits of being single, I suppose.
