My picture seems really mundane after all those beautiful photo's. Thanks so much for sharing them.
I just wanted to share our new furniture for our little TV/Office room. We love the new electric reclining love seat and faux mink fur pillows. The Souschef just put together the little magazine rack with table top and lamp all in one. The photo of Venice is a treasure from our first trip. Ready to watch TV!

Kayelle, that double recliner looks so comfy - and cozy enough for two hand-holding lovebirds.

Just what I was thinking - comfy, cozy nook you have there, Kayelle

Far from mundane at all, Kay. I'd love to get comfy on that beautiful new love seat with a nice blanket, those pillows, a good movie, and my significant....umm...kitty. Great pic!

Kayelle, the way you have done that room is perfect for "hygge" with your honey. Hygge is a Danish word for a concept that includes coziness, but covers more than that. A few candles help. Here's an article that does a pretty good job of describing "hygge".

Is the secret of happiness contained in this Danish word? | PBS NewsHour

And as to pronunciation, I keep reading "hooga", well almost. If you know how to say the letter "u" in French, that's how the "y" is pronounced.

Thanks for the nice compliments everybody. I really enjoyed that article and the video helped with the pronunciation Taxi. I had never heard the concept.

Kayellle, thank you for mentioning the video. I hadn't noticed it and it was a good one.

At $3.99 for a mere 3.7 ounces, more than $1 an ounce, I said "Dang" when I looked at the package, too! I know you can buy those large, plain coconut chips in a number of places. I would think it would take mere minutes in your oven to toast those little suckers and make your own for half the price, or less.
