Sunday was the big day to watch the Super Bowl. Small bets were made and large expectations on both sides. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the winners this year.

Monday found us exercising, doing laundry, puzzling and playing Scrabble. The temperature took a dive so it was nice to be in a warm comfortable place.
