Scrolling for Sanity





Hello dear friends.  
I hope that you and your family are healthy. 



Who knew 3 weeks ago that this bottle would be the most valued item in the house!
 So far, so good here.  
My little chickadees also report in with good health.  



One of the many things that I am grateful for during this crisis is Facetime.  It's one thing to talk to the kids on the phone, but when we Facetime, I can see for myself that all is well.




We began last weekend with the Mister making a killing at CVS.  



You never know when they will come in handy.




We've been doing a lot of this.
We watched Little Fires Everywhere, which I actually like more than the book.




And this.
I have been spending a lot of time in Camelot.

I find myself on Instagram a lot more often.  It serves my purpose of fulfilling my laugh quotient, warming my heart, and delivering my daily dose of eye candy.

Here are some of my favorite sites.


Things that make you go awwwww...



This site even had an article in T&C written about them.  I thought it was cute before, but now that the baby is thrown into the mix, the pics and videos are beyond adorable.

*****



Another fave.

This group has lots of fun adventures in Finland.
The Yorkie, Mr. Vili, is the senior member and my favorite.
Mums the word to the Westies.


Things that make you lol...

Warning... some of these sites are off-color at times.



Between you and me, I think my #2 wrote this.

Personally, I can identify with this statement.



The Royal Family is also the target of his humorous snipes.

These two sistas never disappoint.

My #2 got me turned on to Heather McMahan, who is one funny lady. 

Beauty biz






Stalkin' Celebs



Hoda always makes me happy.

This guy cracks me up.

    Katie is really entertaining and very candid about her everyday life.


Her hubby, John Molner, is an absolute riot and has no problem poking fun at his famous wife.

You know you're bored when you watch Dominique do her nails.

Things that make you want to read...


I follow a lot of my favorite authors.
Some are more fun than others.

*****



Also, I enjoy a lot of bookstagrammers.
As I mentioned before, Bookbimbo's reviews are often more entertaining than her book subject.


Things that make you go ooh and aah...

I'm old enough to be this girl's grandma older sister, but I love her sense of style.

Things that make you go Huh?



Have another brewski, Brady.
Your parents must be so proud.

Lastly, I want to leave you with these beautiful words from Pope Francis. 


Be well.

Until next time...

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.

  3. Love that during your Facetime call, #1 is drinking wine. She is your child! I would like to add to your list of Instagram suggestions. Pluto.living is the sweetest mini schnauzer giving us all a lift and if you love Springer Spaniels like me Millie and Maisie and their brother Norm the puppy are all great to follow.

    Love the sharing of wisdom of Pope Francis.

  9. You are the best and I agree about that Instagrammer @bookbimbo. That chick is seriously funny. I heard today she offered a free roll of toilet paper for more followers. Not sure how long that offer will last but a FREE roll of toilet paper. That’s like a nugget of gold. You... are priceless.
