  5. Monday Musings, February 5

Thanks for making my day by SHARING!!

Good Monday Morning Friends!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend…those of us in the U.S. enjoyed a great Superbowl game last night. I know that the Patriot fans might not agree, but it’s a good game when it comes down to the very end to determine the winner. And talk about some great commercials!!!  I had several that I really enjoyed…

  • The Toyota ad featuring the challenges that Paralympic skier Lauren Woolstenscroft was uplifting…

  • A little potty humour, but Bleep Don’t Stink was hilarious!

There were several others that I really did enjoy, but in lieu of filling this post with youtube ads, I’m going right to my all time fav…

What was your favorite? Are the commercials your favorite part of the Superbowl?

  • Now, this could take a little time to set up, but once established could save lots of time and last minute trips to the grocery store.
  • What are you reading now? Thanks to the recommendation from my mom, I am going through Louise Penny’s Inspector Gamache series.  I would move to Three Pines tomorrow and have a wee crush on Armand Gamache.  They are mystery novels, but in addition she is such a talented writer who has created a lively and well formed cast of characters. Because patience is not one of my virtues, I am not reading them in order, but still enjoying them very much.  If you do want to read them in order, here is the list.   And can I just say…I love finding a good series! Takes away the anxiety of finding ‘the next book’ for a wee bit anyway.
  • Did you get an Amazon Echo for Christmas? My parents gifted me with one and I absolutely LOVE having her sit in my kitchen.  My most favorite skill thus far? The ability for me to tell her to add items to my grocery list…which I can do when my hands are covered with whatever foods I’m chopping up. I have created lists for my grocery store, Costco, my hardware store and my craft store.  So, all I have to do is tell her what to add to what list! And BAM…it shows up on my shopping list on my phone…just like that! It’s truly magical.

  Well, maybe not quite magical…you do have to put the Our Groceries app on your phone…but it’s free!

  And since we are all friends here, I can confess that since Christmas I gifted myself with an Echo Dot (Echo’s       little sister) who sits on my desk in my office.  So now I can add things to my list in two places in my home!  I   know, I know…I’m getting sucked into the technology vortex. Don’t judge.

  • Are you thinking Valentines’ Day treats? Not only are these pretty to look at, but I imagine that they are rather tasty too.


And there you have it my friends…my interweb musings for this Monday in February.

I do hope you have a fantastic day.

Many hugs,

    Lynn I had the best time watching the game for the first time after many years last night. The ads were so much fun, I think Alexa losing her voice was funny, and of course the game was phenomenal. What a great game to see after so many years.

    I just love a good mystery series! Thanks for the recommendation!!
    My New Years resolution was to read at least one book a month.

    Inspector Gamache is a great series, Lynn! Ed and I love them. But you must read them in order – there’s a well crafted story that weaves through them and builds to a worthwhile crescendo. I don’t want you to miss out! Yeah, I’m a ? book nerd.

      Hey Robin…don’t tell me that! I’ve read 3, from later in the series, but am reading #1 right now…so I’ll get on schedule (kinda). But I do have a serious crush on Armand…you?
