Things I Love: The Small Things

This week I have been sick. So instead of dwelling that, I have been focusing my energy on the little things that have been making me happy. For instance Watson on Jeopardy this week. Has anyone else found this to be incredibly amazing!? My mom and I have been loving 'him', although I would like to see Ken Jennings get a little more action in. I love watching how Watson generates answers. I think the technology is just fascinating and it's possible impacts on the medical field seem really amazing and helpful.
Here are a few other things making me smile this week:
The first signs of spring in my yard.

A home cooked Valentine's dinner made by Casey.
Bobby Flay Fish Tacos, so yummy!

A cute book to get caught up in.IMG_5199
And February afternoons that are perfect for snuggling up in my chair to read.

I hope you find some small things that make you happy this week as well!

  5. Final Jeopardy was too funny! Watson, answered "Toronto" he failed to realize that the category, U.S. cities, would help narrow down its choices..LOVE him!

  19. The technology was good enough to beat Ken and Brad - but given the frequency of wrong answers that Watson didn't buzz in on tells that there is still a long ways to go in getting this technology to be able to provide reliable and accurate information.
